We could write a long text about how we really like this guy or about how it is great to see our friends like Danijel Stankovic, Tom Botwid or even John Dahlquist show up in this video. But we won’t do that, instead, we will say that with people like Heitor, Aatsi & Elliot this one is a pre-sesh must-watch.
A signature is something we all have, something to identify us as the person we claim to be. Forgery is very good but we all know the original when we see it. Tom Botwid has a very distinct signature, if that piece of the puzzle would not be present one would wonder what happened! What would a Reynolds part be without his signature Frontside Flip? That being said, we feel that both Tom and Markus truly stepped up while making this part and it is simply lovely to see that progress!
Our good friends from Poetic Collective just dropped their new video “CLOUDS” and it might be the first full length ever that has a 50/50 balance of male and female skaters. Poetic’s pros Helena Long, Samuel Norgren, Simon Kallkvist, Santiago Sasson are the foundation of the edit and are backed by the rest of the team’s appearances throughout the 22Min. long video. It also introduces Britain’s Josie Millard to the team.
A new one by our friends from Poetic Collective featuring Samuel Norgren, Helena Long, Santiago Sasson, Peter Johansson, Tom Botwid, Mira Axelsson, Simon Kallkvist & others.
Plaza killer, long hair don’t care and all-around friendly Swede, Simon Källkvist teamed up with Makke Bengtsson. Together they took their local ledge spot to the next level.
After Samuel Norgren’s part & yesterdays, film trucks collab it seems like Poetic Collective week over at Transworld has come to an end with this release.
A result of hard work, passion, friendship, and craftmanship FLUID is now online for us all to watch.

Leo Valls has influenced many skaters on this planet Tom Botwid being one of them. So, one can only imagine how much of a joyous experience it was to create this video feature together.
He also changed shoe sponsors from the big C to a big N but his love for the game has remained the same and we love him for it. Go and watch Simon’s part now!
Our good friend & partner Tom Botwid has a little video portrait up on Youtube where he talks about his journey through life, art & business. There are some little gems in here about building, friendship and internet perception versus real-life situations.
Filmed & edited by one of Poetic’s own Peter Johansson we find out some intimate details about the man that once dressed as Bond…James Bond.
To further delve into clichés this video piece might not stir things but it might shake them up.
“You say it best when you say nothing at all!”
The obvious things can be said but pressing play will provide you with all the answers.
A jazzy thing from the Scandinavian side of life with Klas Anderson.

Our friends over at the Poetic Collective hit us up last week and put a little X-mas present under our digital tree. The gift was filmed throughout the latter half of the year by Makke Bengtson and Tom Botwid, it features both the last rays of the sun and the cold of the winter winds.
Instead of just gifting us all with this video the collective gifted themselves a new team member as well, Santiago Sasson now rides for Poetic! Merry Christmas Santi!
Enjoy the video and celebrate the holidays from the birth of baby Jezus to Hannukah or Kwanzaa!
Our friends from Poetic Collective are presenting their second episode of “Triptych” and it is a good example of how to build a brand and keep the corporate identity. Poetic Collective is here to stay and it is different from all the other brands. Good job everybody!
Good things come in three’s so it is no surprise that Tom Botwid and his squad are doing a Triptych.
What is a Triptych? It is basically art slang for a painting made out of three pieces. These type of paintings historically relate to religion and are often seen in churches.
Religious works of art were made to tell biblical stories to people that could not read or write. Now we don’t want to accuse anybody of being analphabetic but we would like to argue that the images in this edit speak to us as skaters.
The dictionary says a collective is a group of people willing to work together, and it seems Marseille was the common goal. Tom Botwid and his team worked very hard and ended up with 9 minutes of footage, impressive to say the least!
These are not your usual suspects either, the collective is undergoing some changes lately, and the effect of those changes can be seen in this edit, so press play.
Last year I got to know Robin Pailler on a trip to Malmö, where he told me about this project he was about to film for Poetic Collective. The vibe Robin’s work creates matches perfectly the smooth skating of the Poetic guys, and thus results in a tour clip that makes the viewer long for a skate session on a hot summer day.
Featuring Tom Botwid, Sarah Meurle, Samuel Norgren, Nils Lilja, Peter Johansson, Johanna Juzelius, Johannes Packalen, Klas Andersson, and Simon Källkvist.
