The enders of autumn
The weather is good, but not in the Baltics
Good edit with Vilnius finest
Another month, another TOP 10
First month of summer is gone.
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).
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.
November is the month of transition into winter. In the beginning of the month we were still skating outside, and now it is so cold that even the Tunnel™is a bit extreme. Our November report, which you can watch above, shows this transition pretty well: last LNB sessions with an unfinished line left for next year, Fricis skating in Stockholm’s parking lots and subways, and Riga heads skating G-Tiim indoor while it is snowing outside. The odd one out here is Pavel with a line from Barcelona, fucker skates in a T-Shirt and is completely indifferent to our meteorological struggles. Well good for him.
