The day started with a video from Berlin and it is ending with one. Independent Trucks sent their European team to our lovely home town of choice.

Meet Tom Knox, Eniz Fazliov, Doobie, Vincent Milou, Ulph Andersson , Nassim Lachhab, Justin Sommer, Kai Hillebrandt, Denny Pham, Roland Hirsch & Leon Charo-Tite.

Christian Hemmer came into the MBU scene around 2013/2014 if I’m not mistaken and the first few times we had seen him we didn’t know his name, where he came from, and who he is usually rolling with.

Christian is a very calm, kind and careful person when you first meet him but his Skateboarding and the way he is using the whole park and his whole body speaks volumes.

We gave him the nickname “The Janitor” because he was always at the park (MBU) and he constantly fixed things up and brought new obstacles or ideas to the park. Christian Hemmer is the reason skateboarding keeps on being diverse and he is a big inspiration to us and a lot of other people.

Watching this video got us excited and we immediately gave it another watch.

After the success of Obstsalat and his work on Leon Charo-Tite’s“Unsigned Hype” part now comes ON HOLD. It features some of the nicest people the Berlin skate scene has to offer to you.

Some would say it was bad luck and some would say that it was meant to be this way. Here is an explanation by Dan himself why the new video is called unfinished:

“Due to harddrive issues in the past, a lot of the corresponding footage got lost. This is the fragment of THE UNFINISHED VIDEO from 2017.”

Featuring Manuel Mayr, Johannes Schirrmeister, Tabo Löchelt, Stephan Weimar, Sascha Scharf, Niklas Stube, Juan Carlos Aliste, Kerem Elver, Roland Hirsch, Banden B, Molly, Valle Ott, Kanya Spani & Quirin Staudt.

Leon Charo-Tite is our next "Unsigned Hype" and he is from Freiburg/Germany and that part of his heritage can be an issue. Many have gotten stamped and sidelined as the "German Skater". To our U.S. audience, that's kind of like being stamped Canadian or Brazillian in the early 2000's.

The Crackers are back but instead of Crackers 5 we get a short but very sweet road trip video. We are not going to lie, vibe, and skating wise the path they followed is amongst the best in Europe. From Berlin, Warsaw, Budapest, and finally, to Vienna the spots to skate and camp are plenty and the grilling is good.

This is our weekend website version of the #placeberlinupdate. Enjoy!

The winner of our slappy contest and just all-round gnarly skater Gumpi sends us off with the very final part of what has been a well made enjoyable video!

Damn, that is # 3 already? Yes. Our third Converse “Push Berlin” session earlier this year went down successfully and we can’t wait to reopen the doors of YAAM next Tuesday. Here is what went down, who was there and what you have missed out on:

Together with Converse, we are proudly hosting a session for everyone to join on the 03.03 (Tuesday) at YAAM Berlin, after Give Something Back To Berlin took over the park, build by Yamato Living Ramps.

All you need to know for next Tuesday:

It wasn’t the first time that Converse decided to help the Berlin Skateboarding scene with an indoor facility during those dark days of the Winter. Meet “Push Berlin” – a project in cooperation with Converse.

In this video, a few Converse CONS ambassadors took a look at the park to show you around, which ended up in a session for everybody.

Featuring.: Danny Sommerfeld, Daniel Pannemann, Vladik Scholz, Jonas Hess & more.

Globe and Pantone came together to celebrate the release of the “Color Of The Year”. 19-4052 aka “Classic Blue” is the color to be exact.

Now for those of you that are not familiar with Pantone, they are a company that is dedicated to documenting color, the specifying, and management of color in industrial work. Basically they created a system that allows product designers to create and match the colors on the screen with the colors on the eventual product.

Fresh Out Of The Box.

And in a nutshell that is also what is happening on the Globe x Pantone board series.

Often times, we get to see new people move to Berlin but not often do they catch your eye and captivate you for a period of time. Carolina Gamboa a Chilean born skater did just that when she moved to Berlin.

If you have been paying attention to our IG she has been popping up here and there. So, when we got the invite to weartest this collab we immediately thought of her. As such here she is performing a 2-day test on the “Color Of The Year” board.
