ISPO 2014: The Ultimate Brodown


cover2.jpg

The ISPO hurricane rolled into Munich once again and we braced for impact by building a small shelter to hide in and project shred movies to be safe and hype up the people for the this fall's Reels Film Festival. Method Mag 14.4 was ready for the people to feast their eyes on. We ran around checking the 2015 goods, high-fived homies till our hands were numb and drank brew we till we turned blue. Here's a good scoop of what happened.
