You know when Rave skateboards enter your town that there will be some intense behavior going on. We think the video truly does reflect who the skaters are in some form and staying true to who you are is always a priority.
“Spending a week with Madrid’s finest group of young men.” was the name of the article in our ‘Time Issue’. Those guys rule Madrid and we are all sure you will enjoy this full-length video from Madrid. So, grab a cerveza or two and lean back.
Filmed and edited by Roger Gonzalez.
Felipe Bartolome is actually one of our favorites. He’s one of those people you have to meet in real life to see and feel his power and the way he deals with things. Although he won’t be up before noon, there is a huge amount of energy parked somewhere in his body, that pours out just right after he wakes. His batteries are charged around noon, I guess.
When we met Felipe again in January for a Converse event in Stockholm, Sweden he told us to come to Madrid and stay for a while to go out skating with his friends. While he was probably just being nice to us, we had actually thought about it earlier but kept our mouths shut because we thought packing our things to visit Spain for the 50th time might be a bit much. Besides, we didn’t wanna make a false promise, of course. Though Felipe admitted he was a bit astonished when he got the call that we will be on the plane within the next few days, he surely responded positively to the news.
After the launch, it’s the afterparty, then, after the party, it’s back to the hotel lobby, then.. We went back to Madrid to celebrate our launch of the ‘Time Issue’ #60 – this time we were not very lucky with the weather, so no skating for us. But there is a bunch of other things to do in Madrid, right guys? Yes ma, MAD-Style, Fiesta, Remix with the homies from the Sevenmad Crew (Cheers Boys!)
Enough with the R.Kelly lyrics. But we would suggest you listen to THE SONG while flipping through the images.
We would like to invite you to the launch event for PLACE Issue #60 the “Time Issue”.
Our new issue is focusing on the thing that is constantly ticking or tocking in the background, not a clock but time itself is the focus of our newest issue.
