Tag: If You Don't Skate Don't Start

Roughly a month ago Krzysztof Godek hit us up. He told us about his newest project and if we would be interested in premiering any parts of the video… included was a link to the full project.

Now it is no secret that we are supporters of the Polish scene in general but some parts in “IF YOU DON’T SKATE, DON’T START” really hit the mark.

That means that this is only our first release concerning this particular project. And to be honest, this part might have some of the most interesting tricks we have seen in a while! So, after we cleared things with Krysztof and set up the releases we asked who is this guy?! Konrad Kruzynski.

This is what he came back to us with:

So… Konrad is a young (22), crazy dreamer, stoner, artist, student, graphic designer, graffiti man, event host, skate association guy, fashion designer, probably also a rapper, chef, mad scientist and who knows what else… A renaissance man…

He is always late at least 2 hours because he has so many things to fix on the way. I’m sure in his head there is a lot happening… much more than in an average person’s skull. His ideas are sometimes so crazy that no one knows what to think about it.

He is always trying to do some abstract tricks that he is not even a little close to riding aways from – and then… all of a sudden he surprisingly does it… a moment that no one expects will come. Definitely one of a kind. His skateboarding speaks for his personality.

It ain’t no fun if the homies can’t get none right? So Krzysztof Godek went out for this next part of his video and documented his friends.

By the way, what is with all the hate on your neighbors?

A very nice intro to a very creative section. Imagine doing a Switch Tailslide to Nosewheelie and then Nollie into a Backside 50-50!? Crazy right?

But it is all part of this new section of the IF YOU DON’T SKATE, DON’T START video.

Polish skaters are never lazy, to begin with, but in the last couple of months, they have been extremely active.

From the last Grey Area video to “If You Don’t Skate Don’t Start” 2020 seems to be a great year for Polish skateboarding and especially Kraków & Warsaw’s scenes.

Watch this new piece that has some really fun moves from way back in ’19.

Kraków has a great skate scene and in general, Poland is buzzing with exciting new talent. Let’s give a shoutout to Live Skateboard Media for supporting this Polish effort and let’s see what is next.

There is a lot of movement in the Polish skate scene, from the omnipresent Grey Area of Kuba Kaczmarczyk to the recently released SH store tour, to now this full length by Krzysztof Godek.

This is a special moment because we all need to realize that we are now truly a multigenerational sport because Krzysiek Poskrobko managed to create this part at 38 years of age. Props to you!

From now on Krzysztof will be releasing one part a week so keep your eyes peeled.
