Rain or shine or a “Gorgelfontein” the POP guys always come through in the end. A solid video from a trip plagued by with shit weather and a lack of covered spots. Enjoy!

Already well-known in Europe it was only a question of time until our Dutch friends from Pop Trading Company get their deserved attention also from the other side of the big pond. Their Thrasher debute could be described as sort of a best of compilation from their clips of the past year, which is still kept black in white but this time they spiced it with some hot tunes!

A few weeks ago I was asked to come join a trip to Amsterdam. We met up with the guys from Pop Trading Co. to work on the article featured in the latest issue of Place. Whilst the weather was great, we went out skating with these guys every day. I took my camera with me and captured everything that went down in the interesting scenery of the Dutch capital.
