Sasha Groshevoy has been an avid supporter of Place magazine. Stationed in Ukraine, he has also been putting in loads of work. Putting out multiple video parts in 2020.
The last video he put out was filmed in 7days but this time Sasha has bumped up the time limit to 14 days. Unfortunately, two weeks in Odessa is unlike 2 weeks in any other European city. We have heard it described as the unfriendliest skate city on this side of the Atlantic ocean. Kick-outs are the rule, not the exception and with plenty of good spots, it can look like a skater’s wet dream but quickly turn into your worst nightmare.
With that said the result speaks for itself, Sasha & his filmer Dima Demchenkopulled a rabbit out of a hat with this one. And made us wonder if it is worth visiting Odessa all the same.
We met Sascha in 2018 in Moscow, we clicked instantly, he was motivated, goal-oriented and has a good pop and flick.
During that trip, he had a very positive attitude, which was not surprising since he is a skater going out skating. But he is also a Ukrainian in Moscow and at that time those struggles where a bit fresher than they are now. That all didn’t seem to bother Sasha all that much.
Our friend and sometimes contributor Leon Moss is putting out a lot of content lately! From Sascha’s recent part to Bender and now this it is all good hard work put together well. So press play and see what is going on in D-Dorf.
Julian Mack, Pasquale Grispo, Jon Holzhauer, Felix Förster, Simon Weißer, Patrick Paulenz, Florian Nass, Leon Moss, Burny Newmann, Matthias Pichl, Juri Löchte, Lea Lang, Ruben Lücke & Philipp Graf.
Wednesday we premiered part one of Leon Moss’ “BENDER” video, today we close the show by giving you part 2.
Press play, there is really not much more to say, the skating does the talking and part 2 starts with a loud shout!
Leon would like to thank all involved and we would like to thank him in return for the collaborative efforts.
About 2 months ago we got a DM it was from a guy we know called @kuyt3000. We had met him in Düsseldorf during skate week but had previous knowledge of him through our doings with the Europe Co. his message read as follows:
Hey, my friend Leon just told me in the train that he would really like it if you would host his video after the premiere. And since he is asking I thought I would ask you guys because the connect is there YO!
Needless to say, I asked if he could put me in touch with Leon and we would take it from there. The rest was easy, the video was sent, watched by us and we uploaded the video files. We then asked Leon what he wanted people to know about the video and he sent us in response:
I moved to Düsseldorf in December of 2017, this footage was filmed in the 12 months after my move. I filmed in the gist of the video in Düsseldorf & Aachen but we also went to Cologne and the rest of the Ruhr valley :-).
we guess he is right the rest is just a formality. Press play and enjoy the video!
Tolia’s PACCBET has teamed up with Carhartt to create a 12 piece capsule collection and basically skate the winter away. Turns out to be a very good looking line with mostly simple ideas put well together.
Filmed and edited by Roger Gonzalez and feat.: Felipe Bartolomé, Sasha Groshevoy, Jacob Sundell, Remy Taveira and, of course, Tolia Titaev himself.
The description of the video “imac died while editing” leads us to believe there is more or there could have been more of where this came from.
We hope that those Apple geniuses can patch things back up because we need a steady Europe Co. flow.
PACCBET’s latest addition is Sasha Groshevoy from Kiev, Ukraine. If you follow our website frequently you have already noticed, that we are big fans of the skateboard scene in east Europe & Russia. S/O to Tolia Titaev for sending this in.
