It is unbelievable that our small scene has so many things going on. Just recently we all hung out with Karlis Bogustovs on the opening ceremony of Maxlas’ box and quarter. Straight Forward Skateboards premiered ‘Viss Taisni’ just a couple weeks ago. A lot is going on. We added some fuel to the fire last Saturday with the premiere of our “Latgalian Cruise” video and photo zine presentation.
So, last July we went on a 4 day trip around Latgale. The trip was independent from shops and crews meaning that anyone was welcome to come. We ended up with a 20 people crew. The trip resulted in a 16 minutes video and a ~100 page zine. Both got presented to the public on 9th of October at Gin&Beer Taphouse—Zefirs.
Huge thank you to everyone who helped out with the event: Toms Bika, Rudolfs Henčels, Arturs Bogdanovičs, Armands IZI KCHN, Vairis Kveps, Nauris Dollins, Gvido Valters and the Viral Mind, Zefirs, Lielvarde, Mangali and everybody else who gave a hand. Of course it wouldn’t be possible without Arturs Nesaule and his mad organization skills. Respect.
Thank you to everyone who supports Latvian skateboarding!
“Latgalian Cruise” going online on Friday 15th of October. Zines will be available in the finest shops soon.
