Links Aug-Sept 2019

To leave trash at a spot you hang out everyday is probably the dumbest thing you could ever do. Especially when this spot is a public space in the middle of the city where you are allowed to skate. Don’t take spaces like these for granted. Respect people who work there and clean your shit!

We are moving our LINKS section from the end of the moth to the approximate middle. In this section we post links to videos (or any other media) that came out recently. Obviously we can’t manage to cover absolutely everything, so if you have any suggestions or contributions, jot us a note at – rajontv.info@gmail.com or DM on insta.

The most intoxicated video of 2018 – “Pis Taisni” is going to have a sequel. The premiere date is set on 7th of December and the teaser is out. read more

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

#RAJONTOP10 – FEBRUARY 2019

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. read more

Fully Ghetto video premiere in Riga

fully ghetto

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!   read more

October 2018 LINKS

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. read more
