Another very interesting 4:3 by the POP boys! Especially Mats manages to use his surroundings in interesting ways.

The Pop Trading Co. gang in Paris.

Featuring Logan Da Silva Ortiz, Rob Maatman Pascal Moelaert, Darius Trabalza, Myles Shankie, Mats Edel, Billy Hoogendijk, Ali Belhadj & Chima Chibueze.

As skateboarders, we mostly pay attention to the actual skating (which is quite good in this video) but what about the people documenting it? We have been heard saying before:

“Average skating filmed really well is more enjoyable than good skating documented terribly.”

So with that being said, we want to give Sami El Hassani his flowers when he can smell ’em because his lens work truly elevated this video to the next plateau. Good work guys!

Rachid Addou has always been a mover and a shaker and truth be told whether you are organizing a skate session or an event. In the end, you are getting people to show up to perform.
We say all that because we think Rachid should keep filming because he is on to something. Enjoy!

Introducing Yeelen Moens, here is Pop Clip #32. This time with music (and a hidden message for the Dutch viewers). Also featuring Alex Raeymaekers, Mats Edel, Billy Hoogendijk, Jair Gravenberch, Hugo Snelooper, Noah Bunink, Ali Belhadj & Buddy Swinkels.

It is no secret that we like the Dutch trading company, but it is starting to become apparent the guys have strong feelings towards Paris. the city of light and the home of fashion in and outside of skating was honored with a second visit.

Alex Raeymaekers, Jeff van der Veken, Billy Hoogendijk, Hugo Snelooper, Bastiaan van Zadelhoff, Mats Edel, Othmar van Rijswijk, Willem van Dijk, Ali Belhadj and guest skater Tolia Titaev

Skate48 is a pretty cool concept hailing from The Netherlands. The idea behind the contest is that different teams spend 48 hours in one city and come up with a video. The best overall edit wins the main prize and like the Oscars, there are other categories like best editing, best filming etc.

We selected the two stand out videos. Boombap who won the prize for best editing and best filmer and Team Cabrio who did not only win the best video prize but also best trick by Billy Hoogendijk and had the best overall skater place alumni Glenn Fox.

A special shout out to Willem van Dijk who is one of the main guys in our current issue and who coined the saying “Life is a Manny Pad”.

Another one from our Dutch friends. This time you will get Amsterdam, Rotterdam & The Hague footage from Alex Raeymaekers, Billy Hoogendijk, Jair Gravenberch, Bastiaan van Zadelhoff, Othmar van Rijswijk, Willem van Dijk, Hugo Snelooper, Mats Edel, Ali Belhadj, Joffrey Morell and the fastest feet in the game, Mister Glen Fox.

“Who has the keys to the Beamer?” Pop Trading Company reminds us all that driving a German whip is the ultimate achievement when it comes to upper echelon automobiles.

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!

Featuring Bastiaan Zadelhoff, Noah Bunink, Alex Raeymaekers, Hugo Snelooper, Ali Belhadj, Willem van Dijk, Jeff van der Veken, Jair Gravenberch, Willem Dirks, Marc Haan, Othmar van Rijswijk, Niklas Hallman, Billy Hoogendijk and Mats Edel.

A little while ago we saw the release of “Lost in the Dam” a collaborative effort between Pop and Magenta. Today we begin to see things even clearer because pop released their footage from their time with the Magenta guys. Now we can focus on friendship and the importance of working together but instead, we are just going to make a point and say that Noah Bunink did the best line we have seen all year! Ollie up, crooks bonk down, drop the board, pick it up and fs flip the stairs, great! Now it is not only Noah who should get his props, it is also the work of the filmer. Most people would have stopped recording but this guy kept it going and helped create something really nice!

Once again the guys from the Pop Trading Company come through with the newest edition of their famous black and white clips. This time Amsterdam is the city of choice! Featuring: Bastiaan van Zadelhoff, Noah Bunink, Alex Raeymaekers, Mats Edel, Bob Groot, Othmar van Rijswijk and Ali Belhadj.
