Beyond the Elementality

At the inception of his skate company Element in 1992, Johnny Schillereff decided to focus on making his connection to nature as part of it's ethos—a philosophy that he has run with up to the present day.

Sebastien Zanella, editor in chief of French magazine Desillusion, met Johnny at Element’s new office, 'The Branch’ in Costa Mesa, to find out more about the man and his outlook on skateboarding, creativity and life. This short film is based on the article "Beyond The Elementality" published in Desillusion Magazine 48.
