Nike SB put our friend and really good skater Didrik Galasso on a plane and shipped him over to New York City.
You know he’s the good homie and that is why we are so proud right now. Congratulations, Thaynan.
When we got there we had just missed Pekka and Jan Henrik Kongstein who left the day before. Now, to be honest, we had heard of Didrik but we had not met him but it turned out that it would not take long to do so.
The next day he stole Thaynan’s car (Thaynan has a car but he doesn’t have a license) and took us out skating. He might get a bit angry by me saying this but don’t get in a car with Didrik if you have a weak heart or stomach! He drives like he skates, controlled, fast but reckless at times. We could hear Michal Juras call out “KURWA!” from the back seat at least multiple times. But from the moment we got in the car, Deedz took great care of us, showing us around the city, the spots and the restaurant (good ones at that) in fact it was him not Thaynan (still love you) that made us feel at home in Portugal.
You might think at this point, isn’t this supposed to be about Mr. Galasso going pro? Well yes, but his skating does the convincing and all we can add to that is telling you that he is a great guy with a heart of gold and an attitude (come on dude!) but that is what we need in skating today.

Another star from the Bryggeriet school of Malmö. Deedz is one of our favorites, that’s for sure.
Dave will forever be known as the man who created the Osiris D3 but little did we know that he now owns a pretty extensive and somewhat limited Nike SB collection.
From the “Consolidated Dunk” that spawned the “Don’t Do it Army” to the Maize’s Mayhew seems to have or rather had it all. I guess when you are responsible for one of skateboardings most iconic shoes that it is only logical that you know your way through the sneaker landscape.
Besides that, he is still great to watch on the board and even his former teammate Tyrone “T-Bone” Olson seems to still have it!
In recent years the US skateboard industry has been letting in copious amounts of European skateboarders. Dwindle has been on the forefront of this from getting Willow on Almost to getting Ben Reamers who seemingly came out of nowhere on Enjoi.
Anyway, 2017 seems to have been the year of the Norwegians from Magnus Bordewick, Heitor Da Silva, Hermann Stene and now Didrik Galasso the Scandinavian country has been churning out some major talent this year. That must be why Deedz gets this first episode of Panda Patrol dedicated to him. Enjoi!
Thaynan Costa is now pro for Enjoi. To celebrate the fact of being a professional he worked overtime. Seems like Enjoi is doing something right!
Jason Rainbird ist jung, kommt aus Australien und hat einen schönen Nachnamen. Das konnten wir ohne große Mühe im Vorfeld herausfinden. Nach dem Anschauen des Video wird Style, besondere Spotauswahl und Power hinzugefügt.
Egypt, glühende Augen, Hinterteile und andere fancy Dinge. Clark Hassler ist mit alter Cairo Foster Footage ausgerastet und hat daraus diesen trippigen Part gebastelt, der auch als Ankündigung für das neue Enjoi Video “Oververt” dient.
Der Engläner Ben Raemers ist neuster Pro bei Enjoi Skateboards und darüber freut sich nicht nur Ben persönlich. Converse zeigen einen Congratulation Clip mit einigen heissen Manövern des leicht bekloppten Briten. Sehr symphatisch!
Jimmy Carlin ist nicht nur blond geworden sondern konnte mit C1RCA Footwear auch einen neuen Schuhsponsor finden. Generell gibt es immer wieder Gerüchte, dass es weitere Teamveränderungen geben wird. Jimmys ersten Job mit den neuen Tretern könnt ihr euch hier anschauen.
