The first real outing of what was thought of as just a lit crew with an Instagram account now drops the Swedish 2023 equivalent of Baker 2G. Oscar Säfstrom and his crew of friends – some of which you might know- rap, skate, sing and most of all ball out in what we hope is a continuous project called “the smuts video”
In case your Swedish is even whacker than ours “SMUTS” roughly translates to DIRT(Y), and even if you think Heitor Da Silva, Elliot Toiminen, Moshe Beskow, Axel Källmén, Berggren, Jonathan Sjöberg, and others all where pretty fresh this video might prove otherwise.
With so many talents in and around the Bryggeriet’s Gymnasium, it only makes sense to get the people together and make a skate video. The future is bright! S/O to John Dahlquist and Steffen Austerheim for doing so much for the scene and still getting clips in the streets.
Check out Pocket’s “Followed” to get an exclusive look inside the school.

Baeonci is back with a whole new thing Eva Skateboards! Featuring the people you want to be featured in Henry’s work. It is exciting to see the kids do their own stuff. Let’s see where they go with it.

“Yeah, the radio… the Ghettoblaster just is a must on the session, man!”

Well, it seems like this new generation is edging in closer to that feeling Chad had when he said that. Because Oscar Säfström basically told us the same thing:
“It was all filmed at a schoolyard in Stockholm, Sweden, me and Axel Berggren filmed, we put the speaker on full volume, cracked some beers on the spot and made this video.”

Now, in the end, Vincent Huhta’s noseslides may not be as big and he still hasn’t landed a Nollie Flip to Wheelie but the spirit is there and it is nice to see the future taking skateboarding to a very fun level.
Shoutout to these youngsters for giving us all that let’s go skate feeling:
Oscar Säfström, Axel Berggren, Gabriel Viking, Vincent Huhta & Sebastian Lundström.
