JULY 2019 LINKS

Hope you all are having the time of your lives this summer. As for Riga Barax community days are spent enjoying the spot while it is still there. According to  rumors it is the last summer when Barax is around. Business people in suits plan to build a serious office building on that territory. All we can do is hope they will fail. 

Straight forward podcast’s latest episode is with the notorious Edgars Berziņš. The talk is 18+.

Vans Latvian skate league had a third event in Ventspils. They had some Swedish rippers over which was pretty cool. The last 4th event is planned for September. read more

Viss Safe – our upcoming video has been announced in May and the premiere is coming in June. The first trailer is out, and if you still haven’t seen it, check it out. The cast of the film has not yet been disclosed, but it is probably obvious if you follow the local skate scene. We can say that Mark, the walling construction worker above, will have a section in the video. The video is at the editing stage at the moment, but it looks like it will be close to 40 minutes in length. So yeah, a lot of to see. We also plan more premieres, definitely want to hit Liepaja, Vilnius and maybe Tallinn. We’ll see. read more

Mantas Vaškelaitis: Kudirka’s square part

    Mantas at the spot

Skating one and the same spot all the time can generate new ideas. If you are at a spot for one day you might not notice all the lines or possibilities that locals see. Locals know their spots inside out; they see hidden obstacles and have lines visitors might not figure out at first. You got to spend some time skating a spot to film something worthy there. And spot centered videos challenge skaters to be original at the same old plazas. Like for example the London’s Atlantic Drift crew at St. Paul’s CathedralBobby Worrest at Pulaski, or Mike Arnold at Lloyds. All of these videos thrive creativity as well as keep these places energised. read more
