After the success of last years Nike SBProject DSS sessions, it is finally time to open a new chapter for 2017.
The expansion of the #ProjectDSS park that we have all enjoyed over the last year is a priority; and just like last year, your opinion matters. Therefore Nike SB dropped of some #ProjectDSS Design Boxes at Civilist, Titus Berlin, Titus Zoopreme, Nike Store Berlin and the Nike SB Shelter. Starting today, you can drop off your ideas, sketches, opinions or tips in one of the boxes at one of the locations mentioned above and please do not hesitate to ask , we are very looking forward for see your ideas.
Nike SB in collaboration with Yamato Living Ramps and 1. Berliner Skateboard e.V. will host a Design Session at the DSS. The event will take place on Friday, May 12th starting at 17:00.
This event is meant as a Brainstorming session. Jan Kliewer will be present to discuss your ideas and the future of DSS. Like last year this event is not only about the new design, there will be some skating including a BBQ session with drinks supplied by the nice folks over at Titus Berlin.
Head over to to the Facebook Event to save the date.

Yesterday Nike SB invited the winners of each Project DSS event plus the Nike SB team riders to an exclusive session at Nike Town Berlin. There they had the unique possibility to skate through the huge Nike shopping mall. After closing time, everyone could enjoy dinner while Jan Kliewer from Yamato Living Ramps revealed the outcome of the votings and the construction plans for the expansion of the Dog Shit Spot at Warschauer Straße. The final outcome of your votes and thus the plans for the park will be presented on Go Skateboarding Day next week. So make sure to join the upcoming Nike GSD event! For more information click here.
Yesterday the final voting event for Project DSS went down at Ringpark. It was a great success. Once again many locals gathered together to have a say in the construction plan for the expansion of Berlin’s famous DIY spot. While everybody was served cold drinks and grilled food, the session gained momentum and many tricks went down the bigger obstacles of the park. At the end, local hero Max Obert well-deserved could take home the 500€ voucher for Titus Zoopreme, also for the pleasure of his crew mates.

Yesterday the third and second last event of Project DSS took place at the outdoor area of the Nike SB Shelter. While eating Berliner Currywurst and enjoying a cold drink everybody was discussing about the selectable obstacles for the expansion of the Dog Shit Spot, which is already under construction. Moreover, some brave ones joint the wild Fox track Race. After partly very close and exciting head to head runs Roland Hirsch could take home the victory plus the 500€ voucher.

At this event you will be able to partake in an open race through the Foxtrack while simultaneously enjoying a beer, some barbecued meat and most importantly participate in the next round of voting for a new DSS obstacle.
Yesterday everybody gathered at the Titus Berlin Bowl for the second Project DSS event. Locals and visitors skated the bowl together during the open session, the crowd seemed to constantly switch between the session, the BBQ, the bar and not least to participate in the second vote -it was a hard one because basically everything looked great-.
The bowl got shredded both with flow and aggressive moves by people like Joscha Aicher, Farid Ulrich and Patrick Rogalski. In the end, Thomas Schielke flew the highest and took home the 500€ MVP voucher.

We are proud to announce that Nike SB and PLACE have teamed up once again and this one is special because of the launch of the Project DSS. “What is the Project DSS?” you might ask. Well Nike SB has collaborated with Yamato Living Ramps and 1. Berliner Skateboard Verein e.V. to expand one of Berlins most famous DIY spots “The Dog Shit Spot”. To celebrate the start of this project, we will host a couple events starting with the official Project DSS Launch Event on the 17th of May. The first event will be hosted by Civilist at the Pappelplatz skatepark.
You can expect cold drinks, a BBQ, and an open skate session, but most importantly, YOU the people can vote on obstacles that will be built at the spot. So if you care about skateboarding, voting, changing your city and having a good time, head over to Pappelplatz skatepark to participate in the Project DSS Launch event.
On the 7th of April we will launch the new Paris / Paname issue together with Converse / FUTURandChez Justine. We would like to celebrate this with you at Chez Justine on 96 Rue Oberkampf in Paris. The evening will start at 10 PM. See you in Paris!
From August 21st, Vans presents a special exhibtion in the Sneakermuseum Cologne in cooperation with the local sneaker shop The Good Will Out and the Skateboardmuseum Berlin. The installation will be themed and titled “This is the Sk8-Hi – Style #38” according to the Vans iconic model. Go there and dive into history, the exhibition is free entry!
During the tradeshow days we hosted a couple of events: The first one was to celebrate the launch of our latest issue 53. But we also wanted to organize a skate contest. We thought about where to host the contest and ended up choosing our local skatepark at the Maybachufer, which is home to one of the coolest, but hard to skate obstacles: The volcano.
We teamed up with Vans, Electric and Becks Beer and put down some price money. There even was free chili con carne – everything set for a nice evening!
We expected about 200 people to show up but when it started to rain about an hour before the contest we where getting a tad bit nervous, but the sun came in and saved our day, drying up the the skatepark in just a few minutes. Luckily the people were not impressed by the weather and when the contest was about to start, 400 to 500 people were around. What an impressive setting!
With both the Bright and the Nike SB Open taking place last week, there were lots of people in town. Skaters like Ville Wester, who I had never heard of, but he and his crew turned out to be the surprise of the evening. Combining technical and creative tricks Ville took home some cash.
We also planned a surprise and asked Vulcanos the fire breather to perform his fire show to make the jam a bit more hot and spicy! Needless to say this created a special atmosphere: Louis Taubert who was ripping hard the entire time captured this atmosphere perfectly by popping a huge kickflip over the entire vulcano just moments after Vulcanos spit an enormous fire ball from the top of the vulcano! Guess who was crowned as the king of Volcano that evening? Right! Congratulations Louis – that was one for the books!
