When we spoke to Tobias on the phone the best fact about the conversation was that he didn’t even know he had made a sick video. But he did know enough to send it out into the world for all the see, and that includes wheelie wizard Tjerk Oosting, POP’s own Bastiaan van Zadelhoff, Rachid Addou, Jason Lijnzaat & Connor Kammerer?! Anyway, it might be a bit early but, do like Hugo Snelooper does and sit down on your sofa for some “sjekkietime” while pressing play on this video!
Valuta is a Dutch brand with deep roots in skating. The name Valuta means currency and their video piece together with the Booticelli boys is definitely good money!

Skate48 is a pretty cool concept hailing from The Netherlands. The idea behind the contest is that different teams spend 48 hours in one city and come up with a video. The best overall edit wins the main prize and like the Oscars, there are other categories like best editing, best filming etc.
We selected the two stand out videos. Boombap who won the prize for best editing and best filmer and Team Cabrio who did not only win the best video prize but also best trick by Billy Hoogendijk and had the best overall skater place alumni Glenn Fox.
A special shout out to Willem van Dijk who is one of the main guys in our current issue and who coined the saying “Life is a Manny Pad”.
