"COOL GREEN WATER" premieres tonight at the ESC Basel party at Port Land Basel. This time we went to the beautiful scenery of the Verzasca valley to see if we could find some unique spots no one ever skated before.
Our little clip is followed by the new video by "Own Skateboards" – really looking forward to see this one myself! So come by have a beer and enjoy the pre party to an amazing weekend.
Thanks for making this happen skateboardeurope & doodah.
It’s been a while since I posted something on here. The reason beeing that I’m drowning in (awesome) work at the moment.
Just filmed some artsy material for Art Basel with my good pal Alain, finishing the Art and Wheels edit (drops very soon), organizing some stuff for this weekend and a lot of other small things here and there. (Good thing I'm not too much into soccer... haven't seen one game of the world cup yet)
I’m just about to leave the house for a new mission for Doodah and I couldn't be more hyped. It's always a real pleasure and privilege to get creative with the good homies and spend some quality time skateboarding.
Above's a picture from last year's trip in the swiss alps. Filming the boys (and a broom..) in a giant ditch where they get rid of all the gathered snow from the streets in the wintertime... who knew something like that even existed?!
Wanna know more about that ditch and what went down there? Check it here!
The supremely talented and handsome El Bernardes designed some limited edition apparel for the legendary Desertfest London. Here's the film we produced for this special occasion.
This is a big one. For myself and even for Basel. The ESC are coming back! (after 7 long years)
I remember standing on the big ramps before my run with shaky legs and sweaty palms. I never really got far in these contests... but man, those were hands down the best days in the entire year.
Being involved in the reissue of the ESC is something really special and I'm more than stoked. Thanks Oli!
There‘s something cooking (or is it melting?).However I‘m really stoked and honored to be involved. My younger self would probably explode with excitement. Heck, my current self is exploding!
Four years ago today. We filmed through two whole nights and it was beyond freezing. But still, we had a great time and the boys were killing it.
The 6 minute short turned out to be truly a matter of the heart. It was shown on lots of different festivals and even got lucky enough to win a price here and there. I‘m planning on uploading it in the (very) near future. Pinky promise.
Till then have another look at the trailer.
