John is 42 since today (Happy Birthday!) and even though he is up there he still going strong! the Swedish schoolmaster responsible for a seemingly unending pool of Malmö bred or Bryggeriet molded talent is not slowing down yet.
He spent last summer showing by doing instead of telling people, John is a teacher we all wished we had.
There seems to be an endless stream of content coming from the shores of Malmö city, from last weeks Malmoe Tape, to the Polar camp and now a project supported by the city of Malmö itself (via the craftsmanship of David Linberg).
If 2020 will not be dominated by Sweden than we predict certain Swedish people will be switching citizenship just so they can compete in the 2024 Olympics. The talent pool seems almost as endless as the content pool.
And we are not seeing the same people, this video features a different group than for instance Jacob Hansson’s project. Showing in a way that a city of 687.481 people can compete with almost any European country as far as the talent to output ratio.
Anyway, great work by Mr. Lindberg and we would like to give a major shout out to John Dahlquist for testing the age limits on gnarlyness.
As you all know we were in Malmö for the Skate Malmö Street 2018. Instead of standing on the sidelines like we normally do our editor in chief Daniel Pannemann had the idea that we should compete!
And so we gathered a crew and documented things from the inside. We did not know that this would actually mean that we would get documented by one of our favourites Nils Svensson.
Nils was actually the one who invited us to document and take part so in a sense he rounded out the (vicious) circle by shooting us in action.
So instead of rehashing our own Insta-videos, we present to you Nils’ SMS ’18 Photo-recap
Day 1: Källan Open by Polar Skateboards
Day 2: Some highlights of the SMS 18′ in action.
Day 3: Even Nils was too tired to really shoot so instead you get a single highlight by Shin Sanbongi!
