Christian Hemmer aka. El Janitore is starting strong with a new Lukas Garbaciauskas section. More of this, Lukas!
Every skater has a happy place, a place where the tricks feel the best, the obstacles interest you and the vibe feel great.
Most of these happy places are skateparks, some are made by companies others by friends – TBS in Malmö comes to mind – for a lot of locals in Berlin MBU is that place.
Julian saw that, became a part of that scene and decided to document what was happening. Primarily for himself but also for us all to see, so that other people might get inspired to show “their” MBU.
Lukas Garbaciauskas + Christian Hemmer = Wow!
Footwear is probably the most important part of a skateboarders life, every time you go to buy a pair of shoes you ask yourself a lot of questions. How do they fit, what kind of material do I want, is this the right colorway, durability or board feel, Cupsole or Vulcanized, What kind of shoe does my favorite pro wear and why? All these factors and many more are a part of the process when deciding on a skate shoe.
When adidas Skateboarding asked us if we wanted to host a weartest at our favorite skatepark. The first thing we wanted to do was invite our friends that skate for /// and some of the MBU locals we skate with. We all know “It ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have some.” So not only did everyone get shoes but dinner at the local tapas place was included as well, we truly managed to take care of everybody for a day.
When the sun set, the weather, the skating, the shoes and the food and drinks all came together to make it a fun day to remember and if you don’t know what happened? It is on the internet for all to see for the rest of eternity.

A little Berlin update from a French perspective for you all to see.
The video features tricks by Joel Peck, Lukas Garbaciauskas, Mark Kemp, Christian Hemmer and everybody’s favorite artist Sergej Vutuc amongst others. Enjoy!
Berlin has a lot of skaters being under the surface. People who are not primarily like to go on the big stage. A few of them are still productive, just like the MBU crew around Joel Peck. It is insane how good Lukas Garbaciauskas is.
Augustin Giovannons “A.E.I.U.O” just came out with a second part and it shows almost a full part of our columnist Franz Grimm and a lot of good footage from a lot of our good friends. Arguably Augustin’s best work, so far! Berlin, Paris, Copenhagen.
