The whole Globe international team of kamikaze pilots joint together in Lisbon, certainly not for vacation.

Featuring David Gonzalez, Mark Appleyard, Ryan Decenzo, Paul Hart, and Sammy Montano.

Like the growth of Chris Haslam’s beard the Globe team is not about to slow down! Louie Barletta is always on point and his finger flip alone definitely makes it worth the time it takes to watch the Globe summer 16 team edit also starring Mark Appleyard, Ryan Decenzo, David Gonzalez, Chris Haslam and Paul Hart.

It has been quiet around David Gonzalez lately but that is about to change. Globe just released this clip celebrating the release of his 3rd pro model shoe and let us not forgot the Volcom video is right around the corner. Up until that moment comes this clip has enough tricks to hold us over.

Volcom just released their second teaser for their new movie Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening. It has been some time since Volcom has released a film focussed just on skateboarding, but the videos they put out always have been top notch. For this one they asked cinematographer Russell Houghten shine his light on Volcom’s skateboard division, a promising partnership that makes this up and coming release a must watch.

This summer the GLOBE skate team blazed through five European countries and multiple cities for their EU Trippin Tour. Seems like Mark Appleyard, David Gonzalez, Rodney Mullen, Louie Barletta, Ryan Decenzo, Chris Haslam, Paul Hart, Anton Myhrvold, Fries Taillieu, Charles Collet, and Phillip Schuster had a good time – check out their video recap below:

The day we got an invitation to go on tour for a day with Globe we started thinking: what should we do with this and how? The thing is we see a lot of tours pass through both this city, and possibly your city. Most of us have read a lot of tour articles, and if you are reading this you probably did too. I could write a tour article for you guys and talk about that Rodney Mullen is a nice guy and as popular as ever or that Chris Haslam shut down the demo we had in the Titus bowl, but instead of doing that I chose to do something else.

I thought it would be interesting to hang out with the people that are skating the tour, documenting the tour and running the tour. So when i got a message from Josh (one of the guys behind the scene’s at globe) to meet up with them at the plus hotel at Warschauer platz I said ill be there! Globe rented some taxi vans for the afternoon, we ended up not needing any vans to get to the spot (we just skated the Dog Shit DYI just around to corner from the hotel) but all tour stories take place in a van and so did this tour for about 5 minutes, adding to that all good tours have a soundtrack and we had Paul Hart playing tunes on his fanny pack boombox. DJ Hart played a very short but eclectic mix of tunes ranging from E40’s Choices to Montell Jordan’s This is how we do it! But we always came back to Toto’s Africa which was definitely the song of the day as Paul later stated: I can’t believe last night’s bartender got mad at me for playing this tune!”

So to be honest I had never been on an actual skate tour before, looking back I was pretty nervous I smoked about 12 cigarets and I normally don’t even have a pack on me.
I just started working as the intern at PLACE and I did not know what to expect so I decided to it would be interesting to try something other then just a tour article, I went out kept my ears open and collected some quote’s from the people on the tour.

#GLOBEEUTRIPPIN‬

Mit Creature in Los Angeles ist der Titel der bisher elften Ausgabe King Of The Road vom Thrasher Magazine.
Hosoi gibt pfiffige Modetipps, Reyes fährt überall runter und rein und ist damit der erste Skater, der seinen Griptape Sponsor quitten könnte und Venice Beach Strand Aktionen, dass alles ist in dieser Folge zu bestaunen.

Für die Teams von Thrashers King Of The Road geht es um die Wurst oder besser gesagt um wichtige Punkte, die über Sieg und Niederlage entscheiden könnten. In der Midway Madness sind Schnelligkeit auf einem Toilettendeckel und Wurfkraft beim Board-toss ausschlaggebend.

Der Sonntag startet brutal mit dem lang erwarteten David Gonzalez Part. Viele Worte muss man hier garnicht verlieren, denn der junge Kolumbianer ist wirklich bessessen vom Skaten – Übergnarly Shit. Danach muss man sich erstmal setzen. Den Part findet ihr hier.
