Possibly Maybe

Although the title of the video seems to imply many a thing hypothetical, what certainly isn't is the Brazilians' proneness to shred some of the roughest, most absurd-looking street terrain known to man with tricks that realistically shouldn't even get close to happening there due to the average urethane-to-crust ratio. Well that's exactly what you get in "Possibly Maybe", featuring a chunk of the Brazilian Converse roster (including Felipe Oliviera with some of his best footage to date), interpreted through the lens and mind of Hernando "Ñaño" Ramirez. Amongst its population of over twelve million, Ñaño is São Paulo's skateboarding pimp, whose creative genius tends to mark everything he touches; take a gander at his work with Asco Skateboarding to catch a picture of his mental landscape - and then the VHS will only make even more sense.

Indigence

Costume is ran out of Manaus by local skateboarding (and video ripping) great Manitou: the ever-so-mysterious Adonis. For those who might have skated through most of their geography classes, Manaus is located in the North of Brazil; with a population of more than two million, it is the most populous city of both the Brazilian state of Amazonas and the Amazon rainforest.

Adonis has been skating since 1987, never quite stopped since and was eating VX-1000 ribbon cables for breakfast for most of that timespan (as can attest i.e.. this recent montage, or the Costume full-length), this new piece "Indigência" actually represents the first HD Costume edit. And why not? The style remains the same, and the exoticism of Manaus only pops out more. And not just to us viewers, apparently - as the video is saturated with creative spots and moves that shouldn't be so obvious.

Os Selvagens da rua

Let's put this Easter Sunday to good use and ponder the old adage that states that, if skateboarding is all about having fun with your friends, if it ever gets serious, the Brazilians always win at it… Maybe because they have a better understanding of pleasure? Proof here in images, on the street side of things, far far away from future Olympian stadiums…

LDSxZSU / PREMIERE

We already knew, now we are sure: the Brazilian scene has nothing to envy to others. The style is unique, and the creativity is here, especially if you speak about the Salvador da Bahia scene. No piece of sidewalk is spared and anything can be turned into a spot. In brief, we may have to believe that Felipe Oliveira and the rest of the crew are able to do anything, from the impressive pop to the technical grind passing a doubtful pole-Jam. All that captured by the camera of Alan dos Anjos under the beautiful Brazilian sun. What more can we ask for? Apaprt from an actually cool clothing line designed by the Lukdetxit heads for the local skateshop!?

"Doppelganger" / PREMIERE

We all have our preconceptions, more or less ill advised, on about every other subject… Let's mention Brazilian skateboarding, and you most likely will have more than one. This new production by the one and only "Cotinz" should shake about every single one of them, thanks to a total immersion into the local underground, doubled with a certain lack of respect for what "the rules" about skate video making are supposed to be… Take a seat, this is a diamond even if in the rough that we have as a LIVE exclusive for you, here!

Brazilian Week: "Ao Quadrado"

All right, let us introduce you to the crew that might be the future, but already looks a lot like the present to us: the Look Dat Shit heads, aiming straight outta Salvador da Bahia… Quite unique in their general attitude, they manage to mix influences from all corners of the world with a secret ingredient that is completely their own, turning it all into their very own Brazilian flavor, despite being universal!

Brazilian Week: "EU SOU ASSIM - LUIS MOSCHIONI "ARROIZ"

The least you could say is that young "Arroiz" as everybody calls him over there is far your preconceptions –full of inhumanly popped flatland flip tricks– we have about the skating in his country. And that's the beauty of it… Far from that, him and his buddies from Salvador da Bahia have developed their very own take on their streets that are not that much "plaza-esque". You should relate to that!

Brazilian Week: "ASCO - SÃO PAULO"

All right, let's continue our exploration of the Brazilan scene, with the recent ASCO production, this one focusing on São Paulo, from locals to more or less regular visitors, like that one guy Cotinz, –an interesting character as much for his skating as his own video productions– also known to be on an endless couch tour… Get on the local vibe, from the city known as the capitol of skateboarding over there
