Another instant classic by Fucking Awesome with a lot of small details in post production of the audio and photography. It’s always a lot of fun watching those edits and finding all these little references.
Featuring an outstanding Louie Lopez, Na-Kel Smith, Anthony Van Engelen, Sage Elsesser, Diego Todd, the new guy Joe Campos, Nik Stain, Ben Kadow, John Fitzgerald, Donovon Piscopo, Sean Pablo & Andrew Allen.
We are not going to lie. Standing in line at the yesterday’s opening event for the new Berlin Supreme store was an absolute nightmare and it felt uncomfortable, but we don’t want to complain all too much. The good thing about it was that we have watched William Strobeck’s “MIND GOBLIN” video 11 and 1/2 times before we could enter the location, just to get sent out again by security 15 minutes later.
All jokes aside, the team went in and it is always good to see new people skating the more known spots in Berlin. Also we would like to say that we are proud of our good friends Augustin Giovannoni & Steffen Grap who showed them around town and made them look extra good. Tyshawn Jones tricks up the stairs at Frankfurter Tor are not human.
Much success to the Berlin staff member Johannes Schirrmeister, Jun Kummer, Yannick Zhou and Anton Jäger, who will be taking care of you in the store on Torstraße 74.
It is no secret that we here at PLACE are big fans of Stephen Ostrowski and via Mr. Ostrowski we became more familiar with the work of Cooper Winterson.
Last year saw this really great collaborative project between Stephen and Cooper called ETHER. Mostly filmed by Cooper and edited by Ostrowski. It was a nicely done piece of work also showing the filmers skill in front of the lense.
Now, about 12 months later we get the next project which is very different from the last one, music-wise, spot-wise and vibe wise the focus is put towards different things. An interesting watch with some strong highlights.
Hockey is putting out a lot for us to feast on in 2018. From Hockey III to the Nike SB Killshot video and now these two videos. Ben and Andrew both seem to be putting in work so to promote both the company and their pro-product.
Anyway, with this much output, it makes you wonder when the next FA video will drop. Hopefully sooner rather than later but for now enjoy these two people doing their thing.
Most of you saw the 917 video and as with almost any “big” video nowadays multiple filmers where involved in making that project become a reality. 2two2 provides us with the perspective of Sean Dahlberg the person who actually filmed those tricks. Enjoy!
Supreme’s own Ben Kadow released a new video collage and we believe Ben said it best himself.
“Just some old junk on my phone plus some highlights from the past month, heck, there’s even two photos from today at the end. I hope you enjoy it too.”
We have been waiting! Not for the Hardies promo but for somebody to use that Jay Z song and to be honest, it couldn’t be used in a better context. Besides that, legendary DJ Troi “Star” Torain once said that hip hop is “A business where extremely confident black men are able to flourish and prosper.” and for us that is what Hardies brings to the table with the like of Tyshawn Jones, Nakel Smith, Kevin Bradley, Sage Elsesser and many more. Enjoy!
We had an Interview about Call me 917 from our Issue 58 “The Handshake”, where Alex Olson talks about not skating because he’s been kept busy with the business side of running two companies, while the rest of the team is just out there. Don’t worry Alex, those guys are getting it.
Under the aegis of F.A. World Entertainment Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen founded their own new company, Hockey Skateboards. Everyone who already came across productions of those two company names knows that they like to do things a little different, which is at least one of the numerous reasons they are widely celebrated for. Therefore, style-wise “Hockey II” makes no exception and the skating of Andrew Allen and Ben Kadow is just incredible!
