A visual postcard from a Swede from NYC with some really nice Maxi Schaible tricks

John is 42 since today (Happy Birthday!) and even though he is up there he still going strong! the Swedish schoolmaster responsible for a seemingly unending pool of Malmö bred or Bryggeriet molded talent is not slowing down yet.

He spent last summer showing by doing instead of telling people, John is a teacher we all wished we had.

There seems to be an endless stream of content coming from the shores of Malmö city, from last weeks Malmoe Tape, to the Polar camp and now a project supported by the city of Malmö itself (via the craftsmanship of David Linberg).

If 2020 will not be dominated by Sweden than we predict certain Swedish people will be switching citizenship just so they can compete in the 2024 Olympics. The talent pool seems almost as endless as the content pool.

And we are not seeing the same people, this video features a different group than for instance Jacob Hansson’s project. Showing in a way that a city of 687.481 people can compete with almost any European country as far as the talent to output ratio.

Anyway, great work by Mr. Lindberg and we would like to give a major shout out to John Dahlquist for testing the age limits on gnarlyness.

Clepto took a boat in Hamburg and sailed to the real tip of Spain. They took Jan Hoffmann, Tjark Thielker, Lars Zimermann, Niklas and Benny Vogel who stoked us out with some strong moves and 2 great switch pushes.
Hoist the sails and press play!

David Lindberg has been putting out some really good edits lately be it for Clepto, or for his own enjoyment, he always delivers quality content. Enjoy his “Homework”.

Little did we know, Copenhagen is one step closer to paradise. We just got back from CPH Pro’17, and for the most of us, it was actually the very first time. While we were on our way to the capital with the world famous mermaid and probably the biggest and coolest contest in the world, we got a call from Henning Tapper (Cleptomanicx TM) asking if we would be interested in releasing their latest tour article. The answer was clear, although we did not even saw the video or any of those photos. It’s a trust thing and if you know that Niklas Speer von Cappeln, Jan Hoffman, Tjark Thielker, Benjamin Vogel and Dennis Laass went on a trip to a huge skate park that looks like Copenhagen, you better put all your trust in it. At this point, we do not even have to start to explain how crazy the architecture is. Watching the video, those guys did not even go to all the famous spots. Having David Lindberg as a spot guide and filmer was definitely helpful as well, but the rest was the pure power of having a smart community with very open minded people and no fear of including all the different urban subculture genre; instead of leaving us alone and building “stop skateboarding” signs. Copenhagen does it the right way and so did the Cleptomanicx team with this film.

Jan Hoffmann with a FS 180° fakie Nose-wheelie Flip out. Yeah, it’s not a skate park.

Dennis and Tjark; looking for options, we presume.

Even while playing baskteball Dennis would not leave his board alone. The Team plus TM.

David Lindberg and Igor Feklistoff went out and filmed a little video in their “Winter Hideout”.

We don’t know if this place has central heating but if it does it is a pretty good spot to stay in shape during winter times.

Last year David Lindberg hit us up with his Siggi P video which we really liked, this year we get treated to a full-length video! Lindberg keeps some of his aesthetic but also tries something different at times, he shows us a different side of Malmö in TORSO a Malmö which will surprise you at times.  All in all this video is a good pre-skate watch and a joy if you are into nose tap tricks!

During the last 6 months David Lindberg has been working on this new skateboard / art project with Icelandic skater Sigurdur Páll Pálsson. David informed us that Siggi is newly on flow for Poetic Collective and after seeing this very very nice section it might even be time for a bump up.
