Rock bottom

Kirill Korobkov, Russia's skate ambassador most notably via Absurd Skateboards when he isn't torn between trips, projects and photo exhibitions in electrical transformers, just sent us this e-postcard of a video from a place unlike any other, rock bottom itself which just so happens to be the original concept:

"We had been joking around with the quote "skateboarding is a long way to the bottom" for a few years; and then we eventually found out that there is an actual Russian city called Dno (which literally translates to "bottom" in the Russian language), so we decided to give it a visit. It was a mix of satire, wordplay and experimental skateboarding. Dno turned out to be a very small city; it was very bad for skateboarding, but we tried to get the most of it. You have to be at the very bottom to consider what we skated to be skate spots. " - Kirill Korobkov

Featuring skateboarding by Gosha KonyshevPasha Kuznetsov and Dilip Kharel.

Documented by Barabaka, with Mikas behind some of the filming.

The bottom line is as actual as it gets here.

"Vladimir" / premiere

In seven years of existence, Nikola Racan's Vladimir Film Festival has slowly but surely grown to become a remarkable institution as part of the European - not to say worldwide - skate scene, gathering hundreds of skateboarders from the whole world over in the small croatian village of Fažana every year. On location every year since (nearly) the beginning, Aymeric Nocus picked 2017 as the year to finally bring his video camera with him, as an effort to capture and share as much of that effervescence as possible, with precious VX-1000 assistance from George Toland and Rémi Luciani who documented the energy of the skate sessions. The final product is now premiereing on LIVE Skateboard Media, after physical premieres at the Mimpi Film Festival in Rio De Janeiro and the Roundabout Fest in Berlin... Worldwide connexions!

The road!

If one thing is sure, they do pretend to hit it! Beyond that, one could question the actual purpose, but this is more of a philosophical debate…

Voyage, voyage

Patrik Wallner has been developing his personal style in a very steady way, for a while, now, in between improbable travels, "forbidden" frontiers and a great documentation of the tourists skating, but he reaches here another level of his art, by telling more than the story of a band of buddies sharing cigarettes through a night in a train that nobody is sure of if it has a destination anymore… An eclectic group, an home-coming story of sorts, incredible skating: it's all here, and if you should show a skateboard video to someone that has no interest in it, well, this is Persian Version you should think of. Nothing else…
