When I first met Thaynan Costa, we were both being shipped to a ghost city in Inner Mongolia / China. One of his sponsors sent us there to skate this random place for 10 days. I had heard of him before, but I didn’t really know who he was. I think at the time he was around 17 years old, maybe 18. It took us about four years to meet again, but this time we decided to meet on more common ground. Recently Enjoi surprised him with his pro-board and even though people say it all the time, it’s true – he really is a professional. When Louie Barletta himself turns you pro, you did something right. Here are our five days of Thaynan Costa.
It has been a while since a Skateboard Magazine from Europe released a full-length video project with the magazine at once. Our issue 61 comes with a 19-minute film, all filmed with a VX and Hi8. In times of Instagram and extremely fast ways of having your footage being released, we as a team got together and worked on this video for about four weeks. Thaynan Costa, Hugo Maillard and Willem van Dijk came for a visit and every one of these guys killed it.
A big thank you to everyone involved, besides the lineup above this video features: Tjark Thielker, Timo Meiselbach, Nils Brauer, Jan Hoffmann, Paul Röhrs, Giorgi Armani, NSVC, Alex O’Donahoe, Peter Buikema, Deniz Bulgurcu, Daniel Pannemann, Roland Hoogwater, Valentin Cafuk, Alex Raeymaekers, Mats Edel, Jonas Heß & Danny Sommerfeld.

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.
“The global karaoke market has been estimated to be worth nearly $10 billion.” We just got the news that the karaoke share is increasing arithmetically since last Tuesday and it seems to be a good time to invest. Another increasing thing was happy faces because we saw them everywhere. A good time with good people at a good bar on a fucking good night, thank you guys for coming out. You are the best! S/O to Nike SB for the support and Heiners Bar for being the coolest Bar in Berlin.
