Besides the tour stops in London and in Paris the adidas Skateboarding squad have also went to Berlin. A few of you probably remember the video we posted of Magnus Bordewick skating up the stairs at Frankfurter Tor. Well, the SW Flip was missing but here you have it. Another highlight is the few street skate sections inbetween the demos.
Patrick Zentgraf for ARROW & BEAST. Qué bueno, no? Si, multi bueno!

Adidas Skateboarding recently introduced the new Lucas Premiere ADV. As Lucas is injured pretty bad at the moment, he decided to invite the whole European Adidas riders to his hometown Toulouse to have a good time, which then resulted in some impressive skateboarding as well. We wish Lucas a quick recovery!
The time has come! Today Adidas Skateboarding’s biggest project Away Days has its online premiere and is available for the next 24 hours before you can buy it on itunes tomorrow. No more words needed. Enjoy!
While currently the premiers of Away Days are taken place all over the world the Far & Away episodes further on provide us with interesting insights. This time we can see how Dennis destroys his own backyard, Donnelly shows tremendous pop, and Nak runs the dice game.
This episode documents the stay of the Adidas team in London and shows some delicacies on rough English spots.
The fourth behind the scenes episode is about the mental and physical struggles the Adidas team riders had to face while filming a full part but it also shows some very nice appetizers for the Away Days video, as well.
The third installment leading up to the release of the new Adidas tomorrow in LA. This one is mostly about the international vibe of the team but since we already spoke on that lets just say that it is about Chewy Cannon. Chewy is one of the best! Why? Because he can do an ollie on flat ground in a line and still have it look better than your nollie tre flip, in addition to that he skates fast and on the nicest terrain. So yeah Chewy’s part is probably going to be one of the best in the video.
The second installment of the Far and Away series is here and it features one of life’s most important lessons, share your wealth and share your opportunities with other people so you can grow together.
If you by any chance missed the first episode click here to see it.

Ich habe es getan – ich habe mir nach langer Zeit mal wieder ein Skateboardvideo bei iTunes vorbestellt. Wieso, weshalb, warum fragt sich jetzt vielleicht der ein oder andere von euch… Guckt euch einfach mal diesen Trailer zum neuen Cliché Video “Gipsy Life” an – vielleicht versteht ihr dann meine Entscheidung. Wenn das nicht wirklich vielversprechend aussieht, weiss ich auch nicht…
“Ten years since the inaugural “Gypsy Tour”—Cliché Skateboards notorious pan-European road trip/survival tour—the company celebrates a decade of scraping by on 15-Euros-a-day and sleeping under the stars by combining it with their 8th full-length video release. Gypsylife—Filmed and edited by Boris Proust—is split between documenting Gypsy Tour 4 (with guest janitor Chet Childress) and showcasing full parts from Paul Hart and Max Geronzi along with heavy footage drops from Kyron Davis, Brad McClain and Adrien Coillard. In the footsteps of Bon Appétit and Freedom Fries, Gypsy Life will introduce an entire new generation of Cliché prodigies to the world, while including hefty Gypo helpings of Lucas Puig, Joey Brezinski, Andrew Brophy and the rest of the Pro team to boot. Get in the caravan! Original tracks by Busy P.”
Bilbao. Die Stadt an der Nordküste Spaniens erinnert in vielen Punkten an San Francisco: Unendlich viele Downhills und versteckte Spots en Masse. In den späten Neunzigern wurde Bilbao einer groß angelegten Renovierungsaktion unterzogen – so erklärt sich auch der auffällige Mix aus zeitgenössischer und klassischer Architektur, die sich hervorragend zum skaten eignet. Axel Cruysberghs, Lem Villemin, Cooper Wilt, Emmanuel Guzman und Philipp Schuster haben die Stadt gemeinsam mit Fimemacher Brian Lotti erkundet, der diesen wunderschön atmospärischen Clip zusammengeschnitten hat:
Der adidas Skateboarding Seeley ADV Lem Villemin Colorway ist ab sofort erhältlich. Lem persönlich zeigt, wie so ein Tag in dem Schuh aussehen kann und so ganz alleine ist er dabei natürlich nicht. Ein Day In The Life mit Phil Anderson, Angelo Kaiser, Yaw Baus und einigen mysteriösen Kreaturen.
Mark Suciu, Nestor Judkins, Benni Fairfax, Lem Villemin, Jake Donelly, Miles Silvas, Tyshawn Jones, Na-Kel Smith und ein paar weitere adidas Teamfahrer machen sich in diesem Edit ausschließlich über Bump to Bar Spots her. Der Grund ist #BoostTheBar – eine Contestserie, bei der der jeweils beste Trick an einem eigens designten Bump to Bar Spot mit Cash und Sachpreisen belohnt wird. Alle Infos gibt’s im Clip:
Yeah, people don’t get us, they hate us sometimes cause some skateboarders still not uniform. Is that what skateboarding is about. Be free, do what you feel like. Being a street rat. If you’re a skateboarder, you can’t be afraid to have people hate on you.
