MIAMI, Florida – Apr 1, 2021 – A new YouTube show “Zion’s Way” will premiere on April 5, 2021, featuring 12-year-old skateboarder Zion Effs. Born out of the pandemic, this original series created by EFF.TV follows Zion and friends as they load up an RV to get out of the house and drive from Miami to Southern California, the mecca of skateboarding, hitting skateparks along the way.
“All we’ve been doing is sitting at home, so I got an idea…” said Zion Effs. “What if we get an RV, drive it to California, and just see what happens?”
With Zion’s dad on board to drive, Zion rounds up his best friend and skateboarder Noah Pollard, filmer Nick Tredinnick, and his 5-year-old brother Jax to load up the RV and head out on this epic cross-country road trip
“We decided to pack up and hit the road to check out some cool spots and see some friends,” said Zion. “Hopefully, we make it to Cali. My little brother skates and is coming along, but he’s a big mess. He’s going to be a problem on this trip.”
In between skating, the crew is also on the hunt for the best places to eat and RV parks to crash at, while also trying to limit Jax’s sugar intake. With stops in New Orleans, Houston, Albuquerque, Denver, Phoenix, and more, the trip takes them to different parts of the country, shows the reality of natural disasters, and tests everyone’s patience.
“They saw some really cool stuff, but they also saw some real-life stuff,” said Zion’s dad Richie Effs. “This was a once-in-a-lifetime trip.”
Each week, go along for the ride as they do things Zion’s Way.
