Shin Sanbongi

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.

Style first

Obviously when we find Kaue Cossa and Shin Sanbongi together, we can talk about style. It's almost amazing how their two ways of skating contrast but make it incredibly good when put together on a video. On one hand the raw and violent technique, in front of the ease and the fluidity of a real asphalt Surfer. The Chrystie guys definitely have nothing to envy to the others. The proof drop them a few days in Spain and voila !

We blew it at some point

You can stop all the cyber-digging you have been up to lately: it's here! Yes, the latest Polar video!

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 …

Trip out…

Talk about killing it… The Adidas team is know for its ability to adapt to about any terrain, with class, but this trip to Japan allows us to realize how far skateboarding has gone into something amazing to watch territories. And, in the end, just like in football, Germany wins. Well, in our case, Dennis does!

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!

Yellow fever!

More or less the whole Huf crew cruising around Japan, count on us to be frying the pop-corn by now! But, add a fully back on his board Austyn, and…
