A new one by Makke Bengtsson or as he says: “Footage that wasn’t good enough to get used, lost but now found and also saved for this video.” – you can put it either way, it is definitely worth a watch.

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.
2 weeks ago in Copenhagen, we celebrated the launch of Rowan Zorilla’s well-deserved pro model shoe “The Rowan Pro”. We first presented you with the Dutch version of the weartest but today you get the Nordic one.

Thanks to Vans for the support.
Vans actually invited some people from their European team to join in on the fun. People like Jordan Thackeray came in and joined people like Simon Hallberg, Samuel Norgren & Victor Larsson Blé in testing the shoe.
Makke just released a new video and apparently it is unused footage from 2019. Not exactly accurate, since it has a lot of footage from the Poetic Video but definitely worth a second watch and pretty entertaining. A lot of Berlin footage and even more good friends in this one.
Featuring: Santiago Sasson, Tom Botwid, Simon Källkvist & more.
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.
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!
There seems to be an endless stream of content coming from the shores of Malmö city, from last weeks Malmoe Tape, to the Polar camp and now a project supported by the city of Malmö itself (via the craftsmanship of David Linberg).
If 2020 will not be dominated by Sweden than we predict certain Swedish people will be switching citizenship just so they can compete in the 2024 Olympics. The talent pool seems almost as endless as the content pool.
And we are not seeing the same people, this video features a different group than for instance Jacob Hansson’s project. Showing in a way that a city of 687.481 people can compete with almost any European country as far as the talent to output ratio.
Anyway, great work by Mr. Lindberg and we would like to give a major shout out to John Dahlquist for testing the age limits on gnarlyness.
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.
