Kablys weekend recap
I clearly remember three years ago skating in Gtiims in April and early May because it was always raining. This year April is so hot we are catching tan and fully skating outside filming street clips. It is definitely global warming; however, at least we are going to die after enjoying good weather.
For this month top 10 we finally gathered only street clips from our Baltic friends. Okay, in two clips skaters use some skatepark obstacles, but they skate them in the streets, or end up in the street after skating them (it will be clearer after watching).
Looking back at 2018
Here is a photo of Marcis Ruiķis, Riga skate scene OG, doing a bs smith on a miniramp that he and his friends built somewhere in the woods of Latvia. This miniramp, a blue double-sided wave with a rusty unwaxed pipe serving as coping, is a manifest to friendship, good times and some more good times. After selflessly building it for a few weekends, Marcis finally went there for a session. He was going there with a mission: to skate and destroy his own creation. And he did (as shown on the photo). Although he probably didn’t grind much, the mission was accomplished and this, what must have been a fun session, will vaguely remain in his memory for the rest of his life.
Winter is getting closer, so most probably this is the final top 10 with only street clips; unless you guys start to unveil your secret footy stacks, we will have to move to indoor clips soon. Let’s hope you have something stacked. Also Madars’ part in PEACE was nuts, and it is too good for our shitty top 10. It holds the first place as the top achievement of the whole Baltic skate scene’s collective existence. So no tricks from that part, it is too good, we shouldn’t touch it plus it didn’t come out officially. Pornhub doesn’t count. Let’s just hope that one day we will catch Madars and film a commentary video, where he will tell about the part. Because seriously, that part was amazing and deserves some special attention.
