Good edit with Vilnius finest
Skate Urbanism with Leo Valls
Our recent posts were mostly centered around Estonia. Mestakooli DIY, Siim Sild’s Koidu edit, Viljandi BASH and now this video of Rain Linderman crushing it. We are stocked on everything that goes down in the Baltics, it is just that recent events were mostly connected to Estonia. Well, this clip is a must see. With a brief cameo from Tubin and Nils-Erik, it is mostly Rain’s part and he goes fast here doing clean tricks on what presumably are Tallinn spots. Not sure who filmed it, nor how old are those clips. We will update the info when we will have time to investigate, right now just watch and enjoy.
Frog skateboards can seem a bit weird. The graphics look like they have been drawn by children, the edits are always set to weird music and filmed on whatever camera was available, and the name of the company: Frog skateboards? Wtf? However, on the other hand, isn’t skateboarding all about freedom, creativity and self expresion? They say you can do whatever you want on a skateboard, but how many companies actually do that? Most brands follow the rules, trends and try to look cool. Well these guys offer an alternative.
This is a great video by Ben Chadourne, Frech film maker, who brought us excelent Purple video earlier this year. The video features Nick Stain, among others, performing one the most satisfying bs smith grinds since Chewy Canon in Palace’s Tres Trill video. Overall a good short video to watch before you go skate. So go and do it, pull a banger and glory push away.
Another cool vid from Butter Goods. We could use more Mike Arnold footy though, but it was awesome anyway. Familiar Barcelona spot with the crew that we are mostly used yo see at unknown or no-spots spots. But they brought something simple and new to the same old. For instance Morgan Campbell’s bluntslide on the white bank thing at Paralel. I mean like why didn’t I think of that when I was there? And this is the best part of these videos, kinda keeps you wondering what the next trick will be. And also Josh Roberts’ production never dissapoints.
You know that a skate video is good if you:
The last one is the most important probably. You know that if you want to re-watch something, it is good. So, we bring you Rajon’s list of the most re-watched videos 2017.
How to make Brazilian skateboarding:
Take some tech ledge skating, a slice of mega pop, 2 tablespoons of flip-in-flip-outs, 1 can of tough as fuck dudes, 3 teaspoons of skill, determination and talent. Bake until it’s brown. Wrap it in some baggy gangsta outfits. Serve.
Apparently, that was the old recipe, or the one that we are more familiar with, because Brasil’s scene is far more diverse than that, or better to say wild (Portuguese – Selvagen). Wild side of Brazilian skateboarding has most of the ingredients of the old recipe, although its wrap is slightly different.
