Round three starts here
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.
Looking back at 2018

End of Round 2!
Back from holidays!
Two young gents – Niklavs Vetra and Hugo Berziņš battle it out on the most exquisite arena in Riga, the Spot Center. Everything is perfect: it is warm in the park, there is no one in their way and the flat doesn’t slide. Not to mention that they are both young and talented dudes, they can do anything they want. Especially Niklavs! You saw his game in the first round, it was bonkers. Niklavs’ trick selection is outside the average tricks: he adds extra spins, late flips and pops his tricks higher than required. Hoever, there are these days – the days when you can’t do shit! That day when we filmed this game was just like that.
