Place Presents: Kickin’ Kookas

Remember when Chad Muska said:

“Yeah, the radio… the Ghettoblaster just is a must on the session, man!”

Chad Muska, 1999, Feedback.

Well, it seems like this new generation is edging in closer to that feeling Chad had when he said that. Because Oscar Säfström basically told us the same thing:

“It was all filmed at a schoolyard in Stockholm, Sweden, me and Axel Berggren filmed, we put the speaker on full volume, cracked some beers on the spot and made this video.”

Oscar Säfström, 2020.

Now, in the end, Vincent Huhta’s noseslides may not be as big and he still hasn’t landed a Nollie Flip to Wheelie but the spirit is there and it is nice to see the future taking skateboarding to a very fun level.

Shoutout to these youngsters for giving us all that let’s go skate feeling:

Oscar Säfström, Axel Berggren, Gabriel Viking, Vincent Huhta & Sebastian Lundström.
