It has been a while since a Skateboard Magazine from Europe released a full-length video project with the magazine at once. Our issue 61 comes with a 19-minute film, all filmed with a VX and Hi8. In times of Instagram and extremely fast ways of having your footage being released, we as a team got together and worked on this video for about four weeks. Thaynan Costa, HugoMaillard and Willem van Dijk came for a visit and every one of these guys killed it.
A big thank you to everyone involved, besides the lineup above this video features: Tjark Thielker, Timo Meiselbach, Nils Brauer, Jan Hoffmann, Paul Röhrs, Giorgi Armani, NSVC, Alex O’Donahoe, Peter Buikema, Deniz Bulgurcu, Daniel Pannemann, Roland Hoogwater, Valentin Cafuk, Alex Raeymaekers, Mats Edel, Jonas Heß & Danny Sommerfeld.
Filmed and edited by Peter Buikema.

It seems that every time we fly somewhere Leon finds the urge to release something new, the last time we were instantly hooked and the video became our pre-session go-to skate clip. This one is special because it contains the first “real” Max Sand footage in a long time! Max is the kind of skater we have come to love, he possesses the right balance between board control, a do or die attitude and a way to make any type of make a good one. Max can get away with stuff a lot of us can’t, one-foot landings, clipping a ledge, an out of balance kick turn often followed by a look into the camera. He just makes you want to go out and skate and that is the most important thing.
Additionally, we want to give you some insight into why this thing is called 2backpacks. In a way, it is an homage, firstly to Danny Sommerfeld’s skating and secondly to a guy in Bremen who recognized Danny and told his friend “Do you see that guy? He always carries two backpacks, one for his stuff and one for his big nutsack!” A classic remark that stuck with all that were present.
Leon Rudolph aus Kassel zeigt Julian Ruhe, Jonas Heß, Jan Hoffmann und viele andere Skater der jungen Generation durch die beliebte VX Kamera aufgenommen. “when u sleep” wurde unter anderem in Bremen, Berlin und Kassel gefilmt.
Jonas Heß ist neustes Teammitglied von ÜBER Skateboards aus der Hansestadt Hamburg. Zur Feier gibt es einen Welcome Clip, welcher nach Beurteilung der stilsicheren Garderobe eventuell an einem Tag gefilmt wurde.
Wir bei der Place sind stets offen für neue Talente, besonders wenn diese einen Style und Art zu skaten an sich haben wie Jonas Heß. Wir sind uns sicher, dass wir von diesem Burschen in Zukunft noch ein paar weitere interessante Moves zu Gesicht bekommen werden. Bitte weiter so!
