Real Skate Trips was born when Tony collaborated with long time friend and champion skater Hubert Araya, to offer this one of a kind cultural skate surf experience.Tony met Hubert on a street skating shoot in San Jose, Costa Rica in 1998. This gap tailslide was the first photo they shot together. Little did they know at this moment they were embarking upon a life long friendship.

Tony was amazed by Hubert’s skating and started filming his part which was released in 2000 in the seminal video “La Sele“, chronicling Hubert and his Costa Rican and Panamanian peers: The first generation of professional skaters in Central America, first at their urban city street spots, then the video culminates on the first Real Skate Trip: We all ventured to Guanacaste to ride the amazing cement spots and hang out at the beach and catch some waves together.

Tony and Hubert still skate, shoot and produce videos to this day, and look forward to hosting a one of a kind surf/skate experience we believe you will truly enjoy.
