“Norgesferie” is the name of Norways big summer vacation and the title for Pekka Lovas new video featuring Karsten Kleppan, Didrik Galasso & Jan Henrik Kongstein.

One of Europe’s finest Skate-shops just released a new video via FREE featuring Deeddz, Felipe, Ibu, Thaynan and many, many more.

A video by Yoryo, Roger Gonzalez and Dani Quintero.

What can you say about Didrik Galasso that hasn’t already been said? Well since this dropped we have a new favorite Deedz part. And it is probably our favorite Pekka video too.

Other than that it is cool to see the person who got Mr. Galasso on Enjoi (Thaynan Costa) work on this part in his own way!

Normally these plaza edits are all about the tricks but this one is all about politically organizing yourself and standing up. Not only to save one of the best skate spots in the world but also a piece of history.

Big-ups to all that made it happen!

Nike SB put our friend and really good skater Didrik Galasso on a plane and shipped him over to New York City.

The big apple seemed to surely stoke out an already very hyped Deedz. We guess surfing with Alex Olson will do that to you.

Our good friend Thaynan Costa just sent us a video from Lisbon by Daniel Galli and featuring Deedz, Wilton Souza, Carlos Iqui & more. Big love to the crew and we can’t wait to come back to Lisbon.

We met Deedz in Portugal this last February, Cais do Sodré to be exact. He was staying with his friend and teammate Thaynan Costa, his dad and a couple of other Brazilians.

When we got there we had just missed Pekka and Jan Henrik Kongstein who left the day before. Now, to be honest, we had heard of Didrik but we had not met him but it turned out that it would not take long to do so.

The next day he stole Thaynan’s car (Thaynan has a car but he doesn’t have a license) and took us out skating. He might get a bit angry by me saying this but don’t get in a car with Didrik if you have a weak heart or stomach! He drives like he skates, controlled, fast but reckless at times. We could hear Michal Juras call out “KURWA!” from the back seat at least multiple times. But from the moment we got in the car, Deedz took great care of us, showing us around the city, the spots and the restaurant (good ones at that) in fact it was him not Thaynan (still love you) that made us feel at home in Portugal.

You might think at this point, isn’t this supposed to be about Mr. Galasso going pro? Well yes, but his skating does the convincing and all we can add to that is telling you that he is a great guy with a heart of gold and an attitude (come on dude!) but that is what we need in skating today.

Congratz DEEDZ!
