This is a great video, made by people with great taste and an even better name for a company. Tonic is back from the dead and this clip is the first thing the reinvigorated company put out.
We are proud to present you our first section of the ‘Funbox‘ video we filmed over the past few weeks. Hugo Maillard came to visit us in Berlin and in only a handful of days, he easily managed to understand how the city works. The result is this video part, where he not only skates in front of the lense but also composed the song that is playing in the background. Here’s Hugo, tomorrow we will put out the whole thing. Filmed and edited by Peter Buikema.
With the friendly support of adidas Skateboarding. Big S/O to Daan Dam & Henrik Biemer.
We haven’t done this feature in a while, and we did not ever do it before last time but this is not a feature that we can do with everybody. Why? because Quartersnacks already has a really good Five Favorite Parts feature and we don’t feel like we need to do the same. But every now and then the right person will pop up and start showing us some skateboarding that drops our jaw (for whatever reason). Hugo Maillard did just that and that is why we present to you our second installment of Hot Picks With… (formerly known as Pop Picks With…). Enjoy!
One of the first things Hugo told me when I met him was about the Fancy Lad crew so it is only logical to start it off with Mr. Fiske himself.
Another orange themed Fancy Lad and as for this pick, the cherry on top is at the very end.
Not skateboarding but still skating.
To use a Ride Channel style tagline “Did he move it to the right after the video?”
Joe Moore is a favorite of this series and a true inspiration to us all.
Two of our favorite brands get together for a fun little edit, nothing too crazy skating wise (some great manuals, though!) but the real treat is the music which makes this edit worth hearing.
