What did you do by the age of 22? Are you already 22? And when was the last time you saw someone skating to Kanye West? Well, Blondey is building his own world from a young age and he has come pretty far with that in only a matter of a few years. Here’s his new video part for adidas Skateboarding presenting his very own Superstar Model. Congratulations!
Our friend Marcus Shaw together with Magnus Bordewick and Jacob Elveli spent a lot of time at the Teater between the months of June and October.
So much so that a 10-minute video was produced, a very high grade 10 minutes to be exact. Somehow Scandinavia keeps a steady flow of content coming our way, even when winter greats them earlier than some of the other European countries!
adidas’s big series of events in Paris also brought us a new video feat.: Lucas Puig, Heitor Da Silva, Magnus Bordewick, Kaio and a lot of others. Another video by Torsten Frank, who is really putting in work. Good Job!
You guys all know that we love Heitor but this video is about something else. Torsten Frank managed to get a couple of good MJ clips in Paris to our surprise and he’s looking pretty good on the board. There is still hope out there!
For those of us that follow Heitor Da Silva, it was a wonderful thing to see him go back to Brasil!
Not only did he go on tour with the /// team but he went with some legends from the largest Portuguese speaking nation.
Felipe and Rodrigo TX where shoulder to shoulder with the kid and that must feel nice- it must feel like coming home! Norway and Brasil birthed a brilliant combination on a skateboard.

Our man Conny Mirbach came through to party with us at the Adidas x Alltimers launch party and as photographers do they shoot. This was no normal party though, there were some extra measures in place to make sure that our special meters where filled all the way up.
The party started where it always starts at Berlin’s staple skate shop Civilist. We met some people talked about skateboard history and had some “warm up” drinks. Until things moved next location.
The main location included soccer, bull riding, boxing, and many other activities they really hit the nail on the head with this one (pun intended). Honestly, though, it was great and if you won at any of the games got a free drink to celebrate, needless to say, some of our staff stayed until they closed the party down.
If you ever wondered how everyone gets to “The Banks” in Manhattan, Rachelle Vinberg shows you in one of her many Youtube videos she has released over the time. You should keep Rachelle on your radar, she is one of the most interesting skaters from the eastcoast for us at the moment.
Besides the tour stops in London and in Paris the adidas Skateboarding squad have also went to Berlin. A few of you probably remember the video we posted of Magnus Bordewick skating up the stairs at Frankfurter Tor. Well, the SW Flip was missing but here you have it. Another highlight is the few street skate sections inbetween the demos.
We are proud to present you our first section of the ‘Funbox‘ video we filmed over the past few weeks. Hugo Maillard came to visit us in Berlin and in only a handful of days, he easily managed to understand how the city works. The result is this video part, where he not only skates in front of the lense but also composed the song that is playing in the background. Here’s Hugo, tomorrow we will put out the whole thing. Filmed and edited by Peter Buikema.
