Grey pill

Oder Skateboards is a project ran out of Wrocław in Western Poland; one of the most populated and ancient cities of the region, and the capital of Silesia. Lying on the banks of river Oder, it is divided into twelve islands - connected together via over one hundred and twenty bridges - which regularly earns the place the nickname of the Polish Venice - that's according to Wikipedia, and justifies the name of the brand.

Them guys claim "Underground Skateboarding" as far as in their Instagram bio, but that designation is another thing that's justified as this new clip "Urban Treat - Part 4" (the former installments can be watched on Oder's Vimeo account, here) testifies of a taste for craftsmanship that goes as far as glorifying the brand's latest collab to date with graphic artist Radek Bączkowski, that eventually resulted in the very limited production (thirty copies) of a sweet skateboard deck.

To be expected from the aforementioned clip, by Bartek Mateusiak: the corresponding illustrations, now repurposed to adorn footage of urban trickery by some inspired locals (with an eye for the occasional odd spot, and a penchant for parking lot slappys). Also, if you are familiar with more skate videos from Poland such as the ones LIVE has presented to you before (e.g. here, here or here), rest assured that the grey skies you either love or dread is again present, but washed out in black and white neutrality for pure focus on the raw action.
