So, a little earlier this month Nike hosted a day where the Skatehalle Berlin was opened up to the public and as you have come to expect from us we were there to show you, the public, what went down. A video recap is something we do quite often but because this was a special event we chose a different route, we chose you, the skaters, to document the event for us.

What was so special about this event? Well, it was part of the new “Just Do It” campaign which focusses on getting skaters skating, skaters talking and mainly skaters just being active, together.

Besides that, two local skaters are part of the campaign, Melika & Mobina Nazari, two girls who came to Berlin from Afganistan and are now a strong fixture in the Berlin skate scene. They became a part of skating through workshops and now they took the role of giving them, a proud moment.

Furthermore, we also gathered to session the Bowl in the Skatehalle. A bowl that has been there for the longest and is worth celebrating but is also worth updating and with people like Fernando Bramsmark, Farid Ulrich & David Bachl it is easy to see why an update is needed to raise the stakes.

So in the end, a temporary extension was brought in and Nando rang the bell which signaled a new day for the transition part of the Skatehalle. Now press play and see people race, fly, skate, DJ but most of all enjoy themselves.

We are proud to introduce the Skate for More Session Skatehalle Berlin x Just Do It.

The session will take place this Sunday on November 10th, 2019 @Skatehalle Berlin and the entry will be free! There will be multiple activities throughout the day more information below:

As you may have already heard, Berlin’s Denny Pham got himself a spot in the Flip Skateboards pro ranks and none other than Tom Penny himself took the honor to break the news to a clueless Denny. An overwhelming and honest joy was in the room and, besides a few technical difficulties, it was quite the perfect surprise.

Next to Tom Penny, Denny’s closest family & friends came to the Nike SB Shelter for some Pho, drinks and a piece of Denny. By the way – while Tom Penny was giving Denny his first two designs, the DJ was playing THIS song (Notorious BIG feat. Puff Daddy & Mase – Mo Money Mo Problems).

You guys think it has a deeper meaning to it? The video that introduced him to the pro life will be released tomorrow. All Photos by Julius Krappe.

Here is a LINK to a video of Denny’s Pro Party by Skatedeluxe.

Sami Harithi is one of the very few skateboarders from Germany that have made a lasting impact on an international level – we already told you last week. In the game since the early 90ies, Sami has seen a lot trends come and go, good times and crisis. The most important fact about this humble person is, that Sami is still around, skating every spot that passes his way – after all those years, his passion for skateboarding burns as hot as ever, he even filmed a new part in Berlins Shelter. See Sami amongst his friends Farid Ulrich, Lennie Burmeister, Denny Pham and Michi Mackrodt. Style is forever!

It’s a wrap – The Berlin Open at the Nike SB Shelter skatepark exceeded all expectations in the level of skateboarding and atmosphere. Urged on by an eager crowd all 40 riders who made the qualification cut shifted up a gear to take a slice of the 20,000 Euro prize purse.

Brazillian Carlos Ribeiro was incredible and a candidate for trick of the day with a switch kick-flip back tail down the hubba. Kevin Baekkel the winner of Barcelona AM is amazing to watch and stormed the park with his classic do or die attitude – wallrides, footplants and a huge 540 out of the quarter into the bank…

Aurelien Giraud was the top placed qualifier from semis and kept up the level right through to finals turning the judges heads every trick on his way. Consistent, technical, solid execution and the support of a strong French crew, Giraud was on a mission, highlighted by an insane kickflip from the vert ramp platform into the park to 360 Flip down the 7 in a line, pulled first try and only equalled by a hard flip down the same drop with a broken board… Giraud takes home the 1st place and a ticket to next week’s CPH Pro in Copenhagen, Denmark.
