Munich has been somewhat of a sleeping giant when it comes to skateboarding. The city and the surrounding area of Bavaria take up a huge space in German day-to-day life. With big companies and many cultural particulars coming from there. Chris Bradl felt like it was time to show what the city had to offer to not only the rest of Germany but the world.

Hey Chris how are you, how was your Sunday?

It was nice, the weather is so much better now, we went skating at Oper and afterwards we stayed there and hung out a bit. I just came home like 30 minutes ago.

The outside skating season is opening.

Yeah! We started by skating some flat today.

Flat is the groundwork of a good skater. So tell me a bit about your video, SCHNELLER.

It kinda, happened. We didn’t want to make a video, we just wanted to show Munich in a different way. Not through a VX and not only by doing the craziest tricks. But showing the people, and the city first and not this German performance based skating.

I understand, how did you go about doing this.

I bought an HPX because I really like the look of the footage. And we just started going out in groups. First in small groups, 1 or two people but others noticed and a crew emerged. I did some insta edits and Conny Mirbach and Lea Schairer hit me up and told me they liked what I did so they joined in. I didn’t even really know Conny so it was cool of him to hit me up.

Lea Schairer heading to the carnaval.

People always gather around the filmer.

Indeed, so, when winter came around plus we had a heavy lockdown in Munich. I went back into my hard-drive and noticed we had a lot of footage. That was the point I felt I needed to start editing.

Why do you think the skate-scene in Munich is not as prevalent as other German cities like Hamburg, Berlin, or the Ruhr Valley area?

The thing is when something did come from Munich it was always this very Bavarian type of dusty type of style. A bit of an older type of style, jumping a many stairs as you can & flip in flip outs but without showing the character of the city and the people in it. If you compare it to Berlin or Hamburg you do see that happening in those Stanley We videos for instance.

In my own experience skateboarding is not as alive in Munich as it is in those other cities. There you see the impact skaters and skating has on the city, it feels alive. In Munich it feels like other things take priority, the city doesn’t even have winter facilities for skaters. Which is crazy for a city with over a million people.

You are right! But skateboarding is happening, and we are trying to change that by showing our city. We do have good spots, and they aren’t overblown like a Kulturforum in Berlin.

True, that is a spot that everyone who ever went to Berlin has skated.

We did have the Marijuth crew out of Munich and they had a good vibe and showed something new in Munich. But they came out 10 years ago and we wondered where that energy has gone? We aren’t that G’ed out and we can’t do the YO-flip 360 flip but that was their vibe and we want to show our vibe in 2020.

Conny does a bit of a YO-flip if I am honest!

A little, but I really like his tre-flip. Conny was always motivated to do things. Whenever I wanted to go film he was there and wanted to go and do tricks.

What about your style of filming, there are some visible influences.

The style of filming I used isn’t new, Bill Strobeck built and established it filming someones head and someones feet with heavy zoom. I feel filming like that captures today’s zeigeist.

Can you tell me a bit about Hase?

He is a legend, he is a strong character and is authentic in who he is. He is from Bavaria and proud of where he is from. He is good friends with Michael “Mixen” Wiethaus. It is a bit controversial to say you celebrate Bavarian culture.

That is something Germans are very aware of, nationalism is seen as something to approach critically.

Obviously, that is something that stems from our past. But when it comes to Hase he is just living his culture. Going to events in lederhosen and not giving a fuck who thinks it is weird: “Afterwards I am going home, get my board and do my tricks”. And we love him for it.

I think all the 6 main people in this video are like that in some way, they are themselves and are not trying to fit into the Munich style. We don’t mean it in a hateful way. We don’t think what others are doing is bad but we want to show our vibe which is an open to anyone.

Hase going down the Asta ledge.

I understand. What about the title SCHNELLER (faster in German), how did that come about?

We couldn’t find a title at first, and the longer it took the more hectic it became. And because of social media and the way the world is at the moment it felt like a logical title. We also saw it in the footage during the editing, clips where we felt we should have been going faster (laughs). Daniel shot a couple of analog photos and I wanted to mix them into the intro, and all of a sudden it clicked, the images needed to flash onto the screen faster, we all met during a short amount of time, we filmed the video fast and then I saw that Hase had the word SCHNELLER tagged on his truck. That was the word that encapsulated the feeling of making the video. We did a little premiere and people started finding their own links to the title (laughs). I didn’t plan those things but it seems to be fitting. I also wanted a short title that people could remember easily.

Funny, I interview many people and some want a longer title like Seamus Foster with “West Crystal Unit” but the similarity is that there is a story to how you got to the title. What about the music, how did that come about.

It is a mash-up of songs that we as a crew listen to. With the Youtube copyright being pretty stringent and I had to change songs multiple times. I am thrilled with the music we ended up using though; I wouldn’t change that. I grew up on Baker 3 and, that video had all kinds of music and that is something I wanted to do as well. The whole video showed so much personality and, after watching Baker 3 you felt like you got to know these people. Of course, there are other examples like Noah’s Jolie Rouge by Alex Greenberg or Jacob Harris where the music just fits the vibe perfectly. Music is a means to transport the feelings of the filmer/editor and bring them to the viewer.

What about the color-grading, it seems like you spent a lot of time on that.

I did that together with Conny Mirbach because through his work as a photographer he became a master of grading. I also watched a lot of Mafia films by Martin Scorcese or Guy Ritchie and La Haine they didn’t only show me the importance of the film perspective but the value of the color of the image.

That is a nice way of putting it. Last question, will we get a sequel?

I want to continue filming but I am not sure it will get to a part 2. I want to use other formats, the HPX is nice but I just got a super 8 camera and I have been filming with this old mini-DV so we will see. We wanted to go to Mallorca, Lea’s family has a house there and as soon as we are allowed we will see if we can head out there to film.

“Schnell nach Mallorca!” Would be a great title! I hope you guys will continue because we need more Munich.

(laughs), Thank you, we will keep filming for sure.

Chris, thank you for this interview & have a nice Sunday.

Thank you and I hope we will see each other in Munich sometime this year.

Pretty sure that will happen.

During the second edition of SKTWK we had the honor of hosting a very special contest as part of the whole event. Now you might want to know what kind of games we chose to play and the answer is BINGO! a geriatric favorite must likely currently being played in a nursing home near you!

There where multiple prizes, things like a professional full body massage, trinkets but the most valuable prize was by far the honor to shoot a Place Magazine – Snapshot Recap! That prize and in turn duty fell on the shoulders of Simon Klinkertz.

Simon turned out to have a capable eye and some strong shoulders that allowed him to get the job done in style! So, here it is our very special SKTWK Recap.

Simon would like you to know:

A very big thank you to SKTWK, Place Magazine and all the people that attended the event in Düsseldorf.

Hello and welcome.

If you have made it here you are in for a treat, an old skool dish refined to fit today’s tastes.

“What do you mean?!”

Well, this isn’t your normal online video premiere this is an experience created to mirror our childhood experience of gathering your friends, grabbing the DVD cover, getting some popcorn and soda’s, on the couch and finally pressing your hear the disc slowly turning…

But… instead, this is 2019 and your remote has turned into your mouse and your TV into Youtube! So grab some popcorn, gather some friends, airplay this on your big screen, click play first and then the thumbnails by using your mouse or trackpad to navigate yourselves through this wonderful experience. Enjoy!

BTW Start with the main feature first you freak!!!

We had the pleasure to combine the launch of our all-new “Stefan Marx Issue” with the Berlin premiere of Nike SB’s all-women video “GIZMO”. Now you might think, “What do those two things have to do with this article I am about to read?”, well, our trip had Lea Schairer on it and she skates for Nike so when we got the call to ask if we wanted to talk to any of the girls we had a plan.

The plan was this: Lea would integrate and spend some time with her team-mates while they would go through their media rounds, a Pappelplatz skate sesh and finally the premiere of the video. She would then take a moment, regain her thoughts and note them down for us all to read.

I mean what is better than having a woman evaluate a major moment in all of skateboarding but women’s skating in particular. Nothing right?

Well, you better start reading now!

Finally, there is a queue

Right before the video started I already tried to fight my way to the toilet but failed, because after three beers I definitely was ready to pee! But I was too busy talking to people and was too excited for GIZMO to start that when I was finally able to go in, the projector was already switched on. Since I didn’t want to miss anything I told my body to hold it back. I actually forgot about it watching the video, also because there were two guys standing next to me who couldn’t stop saying: “Dude! What?!”, literally every trick they saw. I was wondering where they had been in the past five years. It’s not like you wouldn’t expect those girls to blow your mind. Because their level of skating just went through the roof during those years. These people are – with a handful of others – currently the best female skaters out there! Thinking of a new skate video being released featuring any pro there is, you would already expect a certain level of tricks… I think we should definitely be in a time where you should expect the same from female pros.

I was fortunate enough to spend the afternoon with the crew of the GIZMO video, which means Sarah Meurle, Elissa Steamer, Nicole Hause and Ashley Rehfeld, who is a co-producer and athlete coordinate at Nike SB. We met at Civilist, we went skating and we talked a lot. It’s great to see that with skateboarding we had a connection right away – I knew I’d get along with these women, even though I had never met them. All of our experiences and impressions about skateboarding coincided.
It was also great to feel the vibe that gets shown in the video when skating with them in person. It was impressive how the skate park sort of shifted their attention towards these women.
We talked about gender equality, equal or at least adequate prize money at contests, how well women are integrated in the skateboard scene now, that, even though all of us have been skateboarding for 11-17 years (Elissa more like 30 years), it’s just now that some of us have the possibility to live from it – despite the already existing high level in women’s skating many years ago. Having trouble finding a sponsor in earlier ages and now asking yourself: well, is it really the skating that drives the companies to support us or is it just because girls who skate are so marketable?!

Fuck! That is definitely a major downside of female skateboarding becoming more popular.

It’s important to know that GIZMO is NOT the first all-women skate video – there have been a few, all privately financed and produced. It’s the first one a big company has produced and put its name behind; which is amazing and is a big step in the right direction. It probably means that more will follow… already shown by the premier Vans had in London with their Bali skate trip video.
Unfortunately, we didn’t speak much about the video itself and how everything came about. And then again, there is actually no need for that. When you see the video, you see the same things that you see in any other skate video. There are struggles, there is the pressure everyone puts upon themselves because they want to deliver the best part possible. There are the super fun times, going on tour with your friends and just hanging out, there is the hype after landing a tough trick and there are the times of doubt.

SMarx_Place_ReleaseParty_11

With my bladder still filled, a few drops went into my pants when I saw the tricks, where those two guys behind me yelled the loudest. There are nose grinds on handrails, bs tailslides flip out, tre-flips over motorcycles, super high grab less alley-oop bs airs in deep-ends, and much much more you will be impressed with.
Even though it can be a little annoying having guys scream into your ear for 10 minutes straight, I was obviously also flattered by the guys’ comments, because it means they have now realized on what kind of level female skating is. It also shows that men are starting to dig the different styles of those women skating, mentioning things like: ”Damn, I wish I could do this trick like that!”. It’s just that the implicitness is still missing!

There were also several other people who came up to me with different perspectives to the video. For example, two super shy girls saying how much they enjoyed seeing me (and the other girls) skate. This has never happened to me and I found it more than flattering. I can’t imagine how many times this must have happened to the GIZMO team over the past days… the motivation for those who are starting to skate has probably risen to a maximum watching this video. It’s just so cool that now there are female role models (several) in skateboarding and that these are all over the world and not just in some far away place. I think this is a big push for skating in general!
All in all, it was an overwhelming vibe. It was so great to see everyone being hyped about the video. There was a lot of cheering and yelling, clapping and laughing. An honest: “Ouhhhhhhhh” when seeing a bail and the same honest: “Whaaaat?!?! Yeahhh!” when seeing a banger. The place was packed, the drinks were cold and people even started bouncing to the tunes of the video.

When the video was over I remembered what my bladder was telling me, also realizing that it should move right now to let it out! I hurried, in the expectation that at video premiers it’s not a problem for girls to just walk straight into an empty booth. After finally fighting my way to the toilets, I found myself waiting in a super long queue… Fuck! That is definitely a major downside of female skateboarding becoming more popular.

Watch GIZMO again here.

Every now and then I think back to a very quiet moment in my life, a moment just after I listened to John Cleese’s high informative & entertaining speech about creativity a moment similar to this moment now.

In this speech, he talks about the two modes of creativity #1 the open mode, #2 the closed mode. In the latter you do, you have decided on an idea and you execute your plan. A plan you created in the “open” mode, a state in which you allow all your thoughts to be there is no wrong and there is no idea too big to be realized.

The point that I am getting at is that we spent a whole lot of time in the open mode conjuring up potential magazines but that with the launch of our issue #65 we have officially with the help of other executed an idea that might have sounded Ludacris when it first came to mind.

Now, we didn’t do all this alone, we had a special trump card in Stefan Marx and so when it came to launching the issue we had to play the Marx card for you to get something out of the ordinary. So without further ado, scroll through one of our most creative recaps and afterwards go to your local shop to pick up Issue #65 “The Stefan Marx Issue”.

Our sincere gratitude goes out to Nike Sb for the support, Sondre & Tereza for their musical efforts and of course all who attended both to see the new issue and the ones that came to show love to the women that skated their asses of in “GIZMO” you are the best!

Last Friday Nike SB, Skatehalle Berlin & Skatedeluxe teamed up to put on an event in celebration of women all over the world. This event took place in the city we call home, Berlin. The event’s organizers asked us to document the whole thing and we answered by asking if we could add some karaoke in the mix?

“Karaoke, how? The event is at the skatepark”

“There are these Karaoke caravans you can rent for the day, we can park it in front of the park!”

And sure enough our wish was their command and the celebration was on!

Now meet the women that made the event special.

Meet Sara, she was the host of the PLACE karaoke bus. She also documented International Women's day for us.

A special thank you to Sara Parson-Texas for all the work you put in and Nike SB, Skatedeluxe & Skatehalle Berlin for putting on the event and making people skate and sing their hearts out!

Sometimes you just can’t express yourself in a language that is not your own, sometimes things are best expressed in your native tongue. The jokes, the customs, the tones, and your culture are all cropped together in the way we speak. I mean how would you express the loss of 3 days of footage in your own language? Kurva, Scheisse, Merde, Godverdomme, Caralho or maybe just a simple FUCK!

Anyway, our friends from Munich made it work and we are dropping this just in time to give them their slightly belated birthday wishes! Congratulations on turning 6 and we hope that the shop and the teams will stay as Bayrish as SHRN needs to be!

SKÄITBOARDING ROCKS!

Bussi, eier SHRN.

This summer made a new friend named Benny Urban! He is a good skater but an even better snowboarder, supported by Vans and SHRN he rips through white powder and grey concrete. This summer he moved into our fair city of Berlin for some sunny sessions.

We saw Benny at our local park and started talking, he was doing a course at UDK (Berlin’s leading art school) and was trying things out. One of these tries is now being presented to you.

Two months after our initial hello this edit was born and we asked Benny to tell us in his own words what it is all about and why he made it together with the people he made it with.

“Finding a home away from home even if it’s just temporary was a merge that has driven me these past summer months. Ending up in Berlin I tried to find something that gave my presence a purpose besides just getting to know the city. Turned out I started documenting street skateboarding of my close friends and Vans Team rider Conny Mirbach and Jan Hoffmann. The result is „BRLO”. A short film, entirely shot on Kodak Super 8 in Berlin. Hope you enjoy!”

Der Donnerstag ist so gut wie vorbei und es haben sich in München während der X Games und dem Street League Contest ein paar interessante Dinge ereignet. Zum einen hat Youness Amrani die SLS Select Serie spektakulär gewonnen und sich damit für den eigentlichen Event qualifiziert. Zum anderen stand die Nike SB Safari Tour auf dem Programm, zu der geladene Fahrer von Spot zu Spot geshuttlet werden sollten, um Tricks gegen Scheine zu tauschen. Doch von vorne:

Hollands bekanntester und laut eigener Aussage witzigster Skateboard-Fotograf Marcel Veldman und Nike Europe TM Colin Kennedy

Helge Tscharn ist der Beste, wir feiern ihn

Norbert Szombati und Planet Sports’ Steffi Hager

Stolzer Daddy Chris Pfanner mit Sohnemann Max

Denny Pham und Fabian Lang haben ein anständiges Liga-Debut gegeben

Die SLS Select Series aka die Qualifikation für die Qualifikation war bereits ziemlich spannend. Youness Amrani hat mit Tricks wie BS Nosegrind Nollie Flip out schon heute den Hammer geschwungen und sich damit verdientermaßen die Wildcard gesichert. Daumen sind für Morgen gedrückt, Go Europe!

Um 17.00 Uhr ging es mit dem Doppeldecker Cabrio Bus auf Nike SB Safari Tour, die von Star-Moderator Sebi Vellrath gewohnt amüsant gehostet wurde.

Das Wetter sollte den Anwesenden leider nicht hold sein und so mussten die Street Sessions leider abgeblasen werden. Stefan Schwinghammer von der MSM und Gerrit Piechowski wussten sich zumindest ein wenig gegen die Nässe zu helfen.

Daniel Ledermann und seinem Homie Juli konnte es die Laune nicht verderben. Marijtuth-Style

Also ab in den Biergarten der Ruby Bar, an den Grill und Bierchen trinken. Willow hatte Spaß


Krappe
, Fitschi, Gerrit und Sebi

Bande-Marijtuth Kollabo Kippe

Zwei Experten für Best Trick Sessions, denen heute evtl. der ein oder andere Fuffziger durch die nassen Lappen gegangen ist – Andi Welther und Vladik Scholz

München Locals Lea Schairer und Phil Pham

Organisations Team Veith Kilberth und Robinson Kuhlmann


Ende der PLACE Media Produktion für heute – Daniel Wagner, Gerrit, Krappe, Kamil und Mark Nickels. Bis morgen und dann hoffentlich bei schönem Wetter!
