Spring came early this year which made February top 10 slightly problematic. On the one hand, dudes are skating outside and post top 10 worthy shit, on the other hand it is still winter and there are some indoor clips waiting for attention as well. So, it was a hard decision, but since it is a February top 10 we selected only winter related clips from indoors and etc. It already looks like March top will be more about outside skating, so this is probably the last indoor park related top 10 till next winter.
Looking back at 2018
This month Rajon Report edit features some legendary Latvian skateboarders. You can spot well-known faces such as Karlis Bogustovs skating in The Spot center, and Eduards Nehajenko skating in sunny New Zealand! Edit also features some of Riga’s most promising youngsters – Valters Luriņš, Kristers Kalniņš and Martiņš Reitups alongside their mentor Kristofers Ozols, who sent us the footage. Major shout out to Andžs, and Raul who sent us clips from sunny down under. The rest of the skaters in the edit are your same old locals: Ed Gaba, Kaspars Gobiņš, Kaspars Polis, Rudolfs Rorbahs, Arturs Nesaule, and Arturs Bogdanovičs.
Fully Ghetto Edition
Despite being ghetto, the Fully Ghetto crew showed some pretty good organisational skills and managed to come over to Riga in full cast for the premiere of their latest video. „Needle in the Heist” is more than just a funky video title; there is an idea behind it which shows the attitude these guys have towards their craft: they are quite serious about it. So serious they came to Riga to show it, which is the first time in recent, maybe whole, Baltic skate history when a video gets outside the home country for a premiere. Which is a positive change in our clicky scenes. Instead of keeping it all to themselves they came here hosted a best trick session at G-tiim (shout out to Valera), showed their film and partied with us till the morning. And this is just the beginning of this tradition; it will continue! More Baltic contests, premieres and collaborations. We are so small we need to unite and make it together! So thank you Fully Ghetto for bringing good mood to Riga!
