Strush x Klasse Wrecks

When our favorite japanese skate wheel makers over at Strush Wheels (whose former productions, including the legendary "COLLECTIVE IMPROVISATION", can be browsed here) team up with Hong Kong-based record label Klasse Wrecks for the span of a collab and the accompanying web edit, what you get is this boiling hot potato of razor sharp-cut VX-1000 clips that are bound to kick you in the retinas, as well as put you in a trance that might technically be set to last for barely three minutes, but the energy of which will outlive said duration time all the way into your next sessions for sure.

Third base

"Third Base" is a new little audiovisual gem brought to us by a certain Thomas Ormonde, dropping out of the blue and retracing a year of skateboarding around Tokyo with the local Adidas riders. The list of which is quite prestigious, including - amongst others - Hiroki MuraokaShin SanbongiYoshiaki ToedaSeimi Miyahara and Kento Yoshioka, but also some occasional transplants such as the worldwide Laurence Keefe, or a Glen Fox whose section is rumored to have been filmed in a three-hour streak - nothing surprising as the man obviously has the ability to bend time and space. The cherry on the cake here is the filmmaking which, with some nice sixteen millimeters and actually well-made, probably alone warrants a peep. Another good reason would be to get a nice appetizer for the upcoming "LENZ 3" (which we were bringing up just earlier), the next Tightbooth full-length, out no sooner than when it's done.

Raw Splits

You had loved Patrik Wallner's "Splits", well, here is some extras, and a healthy dose of that Japanese urban landscape the Evisen video has got us crazy about lately …

Charles' tip: "The Splits"!

"Style!!!! And ideas…" one would guess the Japanese Adidas team would not be short in quirky ideas, as it seems to be part of the local skate culture, and if you add Patrik Wallner in the editing room, you get the perfect dosage in creativity in front and behind the lens, on spots that will get most os us rather jealous!
