Can a video make the scene look better than it really is? Yes, if it is made by a smart man with a vision and an original approach. Gatis Valters is excatly that kind of man.
Gatis is a Latvian filmer/skateboarder/singer who lives in Jersey (same place where Pillo Wheels are from) Gatis comes to Riga couple times a year to skate, film and sing(?).

Make sure to follow Gatis and his future projects at his new channel NATIONAL SKATEGRAPHICS
Barix, Beriki or Barax (whatever you call it) was, is and forever will be one of the best underground spots in Riga. The rumor has it that they are going to build modern art museum there, so probably we will have to say goodbye to it in the near future.
