The Yama Skateboards van passed through Berlin end of summer last year after a lot of beers and skating in Nuremberg, Kassel, and Hannover. You don´t really see skateboarders doing van tours anymore these days so we had a nostalgic feeling watching this video. The whole trip was documented by our friend Jan Federer who runs the Vienna-based magazine ABD and after seeing/reading the article we were eager to watch the video. Unfortunately, editing the video took a while which was probably because of Lorenz having to work a lot, or maybe it was because of him having to renew his free Adobe Premiere trial every seven days(:P). But in the end, he finished it and the video is definitely worth a watch!
It is no secret that we have a special place in our hearts for Vienna, from the Turtles to Louis Marschall and Toni Donau we love to support the city that once together with Budapest was at the top of Europe. Now the power might have been redistributed but the city remains one of the best ones to skate in and even though they have the lovely Jan Federer working hard on his ABD mag it is nice to give some extra support isn’t it!
This video shows that YAMA SKATEBOARDS although never gone, yet still returned! The video stars the whole YAMA family including senior members like Muki Rüstig and Mr. Spettel! But it also doesn’t exclude some new faces like Gabs, Nele, and our all-time biggest YAMA friend FUXL! Altogether this project shows that our YAMA vibe is as seductive as it has ever been: no glamor, no fuss.. only good, quality-time skateboarding.
