Making of Salve Regina

Behind The Scenes

In 2014, Friar Gabriel traveled from Perth, Australia to Chicago, Illinois, and Spirit Juice Studios was honored to capture every bit of his excursion. Friar Gabriel skated for seven years as a teenager, with his focus gravitating towards one of a religious vocation as he matured. His passion for skateboarding waned with his surety to live a life of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience as a Friar of the Immaculate. After securing the title of Friar, with much time passing since he last interacted with a skateboard, he was given obedience to visit a local skate park once a week, with the intent to “preach the gospel at all times,” as Saint Francis once stated.
