Saint Petersburg is a ledge mecca
Buried is the latest video offering from a young Vilnius brand called Chess. We have mentioned them in our news couple of times already. So if you have been following, you know who these guys are. Buried is their heated up, excitement filled, devilish video with a smart soundtrack, nice colours and smooth editing. The spots are diverse and span across some European capitals concentrating mainly in Vilnius. There are no strict parts in the video as the whole crew skates together, but the guy who steals the show and has the most rad trick is, the young prodigy, and our favorite LT skater – Klevinas Litvinas. His skating is so good it makes you think that he might have some deal with the devil himself. He skates big stairs, jumps on all sorts of rails and does it all with his own signature style. Watch it for your self, the video is in the end of the post. But before you do that we invite you to get acquainted with Titas Mackevicius, one of the main guys behind the video and Chess.
VEF, once a glorious factory with a product line ranging from telephones to airplanes, is nowadays a home to various businesses, offices and a night club among others. World famous in the previous century, VEF’s appliances were used all over the world from Cuba to Mongolia, and it provided jobs for 20 000 people at its peak performance times. After the collapse of the Soviet union, the demand for VEF’s products declined, the factory could not compete with imported electronic goods, and they were forced to shut down.
Our street contest recap!
Pernova 2 is a new video straight from Parnu, Estonia. Featuring local rippers skating local spots. Guys skate it all: plazas, which are surprisingly really considering Parnu is a small city; shitty spots, which are pretty obvious for a small city; and even the boarwalks on the beach, which prove that creativity thrieves in Parnu. The city of Parnu is not a big, however, the scene there is live and kicking with roomies Meelis Erm and Mikk Eeskivi keeping it exciting and funky. If you ever in Parnu hit these guys up and go skate with them. For now let’s enjoy the video.
Better late than never
Project-C, a video about an Estonia skate gang going to China, is finally online! We talked about the video and the trip with Kristijan, and we went to the premiere in Viljandi, and now the video is here for our viewing pleasure. We can analyse it, pause, rewind and nerd the fuck out as much aswe want. The video features the likes of Siim Sild (the author of the video, and the guy who shotguns beers left and right (which we back 100%) ) , Kristo “Kusti” Õismets, Samuel Oja , Silver Jõesaar (the guy who did bs noseblunts back in the day), Kristjan Prik and Toomas Seppänen (the guy who didn’t land the laser flip (only that day)). Congrats to the crew for making it back alive and for making this awesome video! Enjoy!
