Insert reference to Transworld’s In Bloom video and you have something like the Olso version of that here. Young up and comers taking over the scene with volume and quality!
That first song we only knew in another language which is worth checking out. Truth be told Martin and his friends laid it down in Oslo during “Lockdown”?

You knew from the first moment you heard Ja Rule’s voice that this was gonna be a vibe!
Also, shout out to Oslo you have been on a strong one lately!
A new video from Oslo by Martin Stuve Strom. The North never disappoints.
Feat.: Øyvind Svensen, Sivert Øveraas, Alek Oestreng, Jens Ugland, Kevin Bækkel, Martin Dammen, Marcus Shaw, Gard Hvaara, Magnus Bordewick, Jacob Elveli, Jared Cleland, Gabriel Bjørsvik, Vi Duc Truong & Ruben Soon.
Our friend Marcus Shaw together with Magnus Bordewick and Jacob Elveli spent a lot of time at the Teater between the months of June and October.
So much so that a 10-minute video was produced, a very high grade 10 minutes to be exact. Somehow Scandinavia keeps a steady flow of content coming our way, even when winter greats them earlier than some of the other European countries!
adidas’s big series of events in Paris also brought us a new video feat.: Lucas Puig, Heitor Da Silva, Magnus Bordewick, Kaio and a lot of others. Another video by Torsten Frank, who is really putting in work. Good Job!
Magnus and Chris Mulhern did everything right during the making of this part.
They picked a great song, showed both Magnus and his friends and managed to blend all types of different locations into one coherent part.
Hats of to all people involved this is one of the best parts of 2018 and a little tip: keep watching during the credits.
Footwear is probably the most important part of a skateboarders life, every time you go to buy a pair of shoes you ask yourself a lot of questions. How do they fit, what kind of material do I want, is this the right colorway, durability or board feel, Cupsole or Vulcanized, What kind of shoe does my favorite pro wear and why? All these factors and many more are a part of the process when deciding on a skate shoe.
When adidas Skateboarding asked us if we wanted to host a weartest at our favorite skatepark. The first thing we wanted to do was invite our friends that skate for /// and some of the MBU locals we skate with. We all know “It ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have some.” So not only did everyone get shoes but dinner at the local tapas place was included as well, we truly managed to take care of everybody for a day.
When the sun set, the weather, the skating, the shoes and the food and drinks all came together to make it a fun day to remember and if you don’t know what happened? It is on the internet for all to see for the rest of eternity.

Last week we launched our new “Dit is Berlin” series which started off with Philip Oehimige and Eric Erhardt. Both managed to set a strong precedent with their episode.
Today it is time for the second episode featuring two of Norway’s finest: Magnus Bordewick and Marcus Shaw who both hail from Oslo. The latter willfully started a line with pushing switch mongo and then at the end of the line reverting to regular switch push. Some pretty OG Guy Mariano type of stuff, who happens now to be on the same team as Magnus.
Pol Catena and Niels Bennett hold their own and pull out some pretty tech moves. At times Niels is like a young Mark Suciu – in our book a major compliment! Another fun fact about Niels is that he talks German fluently. Finally, somebody’s mixed American /// German heritage paid off. Trust us it made his life considerably easier during his time in Germany’s capital.
Next week on Wednesday we will be dropping the final episode of “Dit is Berlin” for you. Featuring the likes of Valle Rosomako, Tjark Thielker, Daniel Ledermann and many others.
We would like to thank adidas skateboarding for the support now go watch the newest episode of “Dit is Berlin”!
In this new Europe Tape Kevin Vietzke skates like he would not let you into the club on Saturday.

Most of these images could have made it into our current issue, that is a fact. It takes a certain idea, a vibe, a setting and the right people to make a good article. It also strongly depends on the taste of the person working on a specific article direction. Person “A” might like a bit more Heitor Da Silva (who wouldn’t?), Person “B” might prefer some more grandpa’s (elderly Spanish people have the best style!) or simply a second Budgetbeuker portrait (he is a pretty one isn’t he?). Since we have other articles and a limited number of pages, we don’t want to have to leave some stuff on the drawing board just to watch them expire.
Enjoy another episode of Kaffeezigarette!
Welcome to Barcelona and welcome to our house. It’s a simple house but it has a room that’s all your own. It has a shower, a TV set, a kitchen with pots and pans and most importantly, it has “us”– other people in it. Now I don’t know if you…. the person reading this, are still living with your parents or if you recently bought your first house, but I do know that all of the above and in between know the feeling of coming into a new place. A house filled with people you don’t really know. If you’re lucky, there might be some facial recognition here and there. Upon entry, you shake hands, state your name, try to remember theirs and ask for the Wi-Fi password. You do all of this with the goal of dropping your bags and getting to your room so you can lie down for a minute and process everything. Now for some of you, the alarm bells might have started ringing. You know the feeling, you know the drill, but if for some reason you can’t remember the feeling, let me help you refresh your memory. It is the same feeling you get when you go to summer camp.
This film is featuring: Marcus Shaw, Filip Almqvist, Phillip Oehmige, Pekka Løvås, Heitor Da Silva, Daniel Spängs & Martin Sandberg.
Filmed and edited by Peter Buikema.
