Swedish slappies

Our Swedish homies over at Poetic Collective just earned themselves the luxury of a worldwide-scale collaboration with Film Trucks, ex-Cliché founder Jérémie Daclin's new company and, as though to make it all the more official, the virus known for atrophying one's ollie muscles was spread all the way to and around Malmö - where some fine lads await us to reassure that the disease may not be that lethal after all. All filmed by Markus Bengtsson, also behind the recent Copenhagen edit: "Pas De Problème..."!

D.J. Dub's tip : "Pas de problème"...

The former freelancer for SuGaR back when the magazine was still reviewing records (reviewing what?) is back, and once again naively thought he'd be the one to let us know on the recent online drop of this new edit by Makke Bengtsson, most notably the immaculate filmer for the just-as-immaculate Swedish Poetic Collective. On the menu: his friends' holidays in Copenhagen, including - amongst a list of others - the unextinguishable Léo Valls as well as Le Rollersurfer, aka. Ben Koppl...

Swedish Spring

Poetic collective and Levi’s skateboarding have teamed up to make “On Land”. Fully filmed in the streets of Stockholm, this video represents the arrival of the few rays of sun which erase the long Swedish winter opening up somehow the “skateboarding season”. And as always, to our greatest delight, these young Swedish have this way so creative and atypical to approach spots with combinations of tricks that we might not even have thought of. 

P.A.'s tip: "Sortie Marseille"

Et, oui, LIVE a une nouvelle voix, dans la personne de notre tout premier stagiaire, Pierre-Alexandre. On dit bonjour, tout le monde! Et on l'écoute, parce qu'il n'a pas mauvais goût, vu son premier conseil: "Les suédois de Poetic Collective qui nous offrent quelques belles rimes (tricks) sur Marseille. Voilà quelque chose qui fait plaisir. Et, comme d’habitude, ils ont juste cette petite touche d’originalité qui nous donnerait envie de faire fuser wallies, slappys et no-complys. Certes, on est loin du gros smith grind sur un rail de vingt marches, mais c’est bien aussi, un peu de poésie dans ce monde de brutes."

Street chemistry

You are in for a little trip to the streets of Stockholm, for some street skating mixing both tech and impossible grounds, via the younglings of local shop, Streetlab

Snapshot

Phil Evans is back with a new themed edit, this time based around the photographic formats that shaped the history of skateboarding on paper, and with also a fine selection of Malmö skaters you don't necessarely se often. Add a custom soundtrack by Gibbo, and you are in for a treat!
