Every year, during the winter months skaters in Berlin need to find a sheltered home to skate. Snow, hail, wind, rain and -15 temperatures will make even the most hardened skater go looking for an indoor location.
Some go to public parks others like to get creative and sneak in somewhere warm. This “spot” is definitely the creative kind of location and with Valle Rosomako as the gatekeeper, you are assured that things will be fun and surprising.
This video part shows you the fruits of the shelter, a place to evolve your skateboarding to the next level. The difference is most kids can’t take that next step and take those tricks to some of those imperfect streets spots. These guys obviously transcended that and did some of their best stuff to date.
Thus we want to give a little shout out to Max Obert for his tre-flip down the double set and Justin Sommer’s Rewe line and fs flip over the Warschauer tracks, great stuff guys!
A while back we premiered Paul Herrmann’s video “Welcome to Franki”, at the same time we introduced his video column for PLACE. These raw cuts are a part of that series and they provide you with a great behind the scenes look.
Featuring highlights by Philipp Oehmige, Justin Sommer, Timo Meiselbach, Kalle Wiehn and much more
Finally, Dan Schulz’s Berlin based independent skate film Oh Snap is going to be premiered on December 3rd. Here is the official trailer, which provides a good foretaste of what is to come! Oh Snap!

Today we are premiering “Welcome to Franki” a skateboard video by a young filmer out of Frankfurt named Paul Herrmann. The video was shot in Frankfurt, Berlin, Barcelona and the French capital of Paris. It gives you a good insight into what young German skaters are doing (mostly in Frankfurt and Berlin) but it also has some mainstay people like Kai Hillebrand, Valentin Cafuk, and Timo Meiselbach. All in all we back Paul in his efforts and are proud not only to host the online premiere of his new video but also to welcome him into the PLACE squad. From now on Paul will produce a monthly video column for all of you to enjoy but first things first, take a seat, make yourself comfortable, press play and welcome yourself to Franki.
