Pol Catena from Barcelona put together this all new full part for Skatedeluxe. Pol definitely stepped up his game with this one!

Filmed & Edited by Nico Cook.

Tour edits are extremely rare these days. Never thought we would miss sitting in an airport, looking around the overcrowded gate while waiting for a delayed flight. Skatedeluxe went to Athens and took Manny Lopez, Matt Debauche, Ike Fromme, Denny Pham, Martin Sandberg & Willow Voges Fernandes with them.

Ike Fromme in his first stand alone full part for Skatedeluxe & adidas Skateboarding. Congratulations, Ike!

A really nice tour video to a location close to home. Good work by the team manager to reshape the team.

Fun Fact: There is an actual new Willow on the team now!

A nice pre-lockdown flash of skating by some very nice skaters. We want to give Ike Fromme a special little S/O because he really did some spicy stuff in this one.

To many of us, the Italian island of Sicily is the home of La Cosa Nostra but it is also the gateway to Africa or the first step to a new life in Europe.

Once a part of Tunisia, Sicily has a special place within the shoe-shaped country and you will see that once you click play and you see the spots, the scenery and the Skatedeluxe team crushing it.

Frenchman Matt Debauché and his buddy Félixe Vermandé are bringing back the VX and this part for skatedeluxe.

Denny Pham is back with a new video part and this time he brought it back to a classic. We said it before and we say it again, Denny remains one of the best technical skaters from Europe. And.. did i see a Tom Penny cameo!? Instant Classic!

Design is often based on other design, how many Ferrari shaped bedsheets or My Little Pony shaped birthday cakes have we not seen in our life?

So when Nike remastered the Janoski for its 10-year anniversary they also looked outside, they probably looked at animals, the sky, cement patterns, but in the end, I believe they simply looked out of their Beaverton office window onto the parking lot and there they found the answer sitting in the swooshes own parking lot.

(disclaimer: this might not be factual, they might have just found pictures of the car on the internet)

The Volkswagen Polo “Harlekin’s” story connects to the Janoski in multiple ways. It was in 1994 that the German company wanted to draw attention to their newly-updated Polo model but the problem they had to solve was:

“How do we get people to look at the newness?”.

The answer came in all colors! They devised a special showroom model of the new 6N, this model would breathe NEW! But this model was only meant to show off in the showroom it wasn’t available to the public… Well a couple of the showroom models actually did get sold afterwards and those cars began to create “word of mouth” on the streets and when the streets are talking the people at VW were listening.

1995 swings around and featured in the catalog is the now legendary VW 6N Harlekin as demanded by the public and in 2019 a similar story can be told about Nike SB’s Janoski shoe. Like the Polo, it looks similar but it is not quite the same, from little leather linings to the tape on the sole, everything has been tweaked for ’19 and that is where the two stories meet.

The story concludes below…

Fast forward to the 10th of May, Denny Pham, Jan Henrik Kongstein, Peter Buikema, Leo Preisinger and myself find ourselves driving around Berlin in a VW Harlekin wearing the Janoski Harlekin, we are putting both through the wringer for the next 2,5 days.

We didn’t do that alone, of course, we invited some Nike riders and Berlin locals to test it with us along the way.

To be honest the car has had a bit more mileage than the shoe but both held up quite well during our time even though Leo had his doubts about the car.

After the 2.5 days we concluded a couple of things:

  1. Denny Pham skates like he is playing THPS.
  2. The “new” Janoski looks better than the “old” Janoski (look closely).
  3. Jan Kliewer can shove his board like it is 1991.
  4. Jan Henrik like all people in Norway is hella tech.
  5. Michael Mackrodt drives a car the same way he skates.

Thank you for the support Skatedeluxe and Nike SB <3

Martin Sandberg, Ike Fromme, Amiel Kornicki, Sascha Sharf, Kevin Ozcan, and Tim Janke went to Zaragoza and found some really nice terrain for a wear test of the 3st.004. Enjoy!

Last Friday Nike SB, Skatehalle Berlin & Skatedeluxe teamed up to put on an event in celebration of women all over the world. This event took place in the city we call home, Berlin. The event’s organizers asked us to document the whole thing and we answered by asking if we could add some karaoke in the mix?

“Karaoke, how? The event is at the skatepark”

“There are these Karaoke caravans you can rent for the day, we can park it in front of the park!”

And sure enough our wish was their command and the celebration was on!

Now meet the women that made the event special.

Meet Sara, she was the host of the PLACE karaoke bus. She also documented International Women's day for us.

Now meet our new favorite up & coming skater! She was shorter than her board but twice as tough, had a need for speed and had the entire skatepark crowd following her every move like a tennisball at the wimbledon finals.

Meet Sara she was DJ'ing the whole night... She also runs things! Eventually though the funk in the van was too strong and even she had to join in song and dance!

Linda didn't come sing with us, not because she didn't want to but because she was to busy ripping! She did a second try Frontside Boardslide 270 right in front of eyes, said hi and had to keep it moving!

A special thank you to Sara Parson-Texas for all the work you put in and Nike SB, Skatedeluxe & Skatehalle Berlin for putting on the event and making people skate and sing their hearts out!

Just as we are slowly reaching the coldest point of the year Skatedeluxe and Levi’s created some warm winter wear.
In celebration, they sent out some of their riders to do a resistance test and as we can see the results do not lie.

Denny Pham, Amiel Kornicki, Martin Sandberg & Ike Fromme made it outside of the known Barcelona’s spots. They went looking for something else, something new and struck gold. Enjoy!

Do you really wonder why Denny Pham is a professional Skater? No, right? If you do, watch his new part and lose all your doubts about him. Best one yet! Now, get to work Denny, you have a lot of new responsibilities in your position. Mo’ money mo’ problems.

As you may have already heard, Berlin’s Denny Pham got himself a spot in the Flip Skateboards pro ranks and none other than Tom Penny himself took the honor to break the news to a clueless Denny. An overwhelming and honest joy was in the room and, besides a few technical difficulties, it was quite the perfect surprise.

Next to Tom Penny, Denny’s closest family & friends came to the Nike SB Shelter for some Pho, drinks and a piece of Denny. By the way – while Tom Penny was giving Denny his first two designs, the DJ was playing THIS song (Notorious BIG feat. Puff Daddy & Mase – Mo Money Mo Problems).

You guys think it has a deeper meaning to it? The video that introduced him to the pro life will be released tomorrow. All Photos by Julius Krappe.

Here is a LINK to a video of Denny’s Pro Party by Skatedeluxe.

The skatedeluxe team has been steadily evolving and it is shaping up quite nicely. Spearheaded by Denny Pham and now supported by Manny Lopez this Jon Wolf production have a nice BLN vibe to it. Enjoy.

We recently rewatched Willow’s classic Panorama Berlin part and, to be honest, we didn’t think he could find one more NBD at the kulturforum double set. He did though, impressive, to say the least!

His part is only online for 24 hours so check it out while you can.

What do you do when the weather goes from hot to cold? We guess you film a part while you still can.
A lot of people get the more dedicated you get to their craft once they get older and Denny got up really early for this one. Getting out of bed and skating before the city starts to move.

In our opinion, Mr. Pham is aging like wine instead of milk and his sponsors know that! So, Skatedeluxe and Nike SB decided to team up and drop a little winter capsule together with this part. Check it out here.

A high-definition skate clip by our good friend Severin Strauss, who is all about quality and a high clarity grade. This video features Denny Pham, Christoph “Willow” Wildgrube & co. skating the cobblestone capital of the world.

Willow, Douwé Macare, Denny Pham, Matt Débauché, Ben Dillinger and Christoph Radtke ventured out on a skate trip to Austria. The result is some great skating but we are a sucker for a good frontside noseslide to fakie, shout out to Mr. Pham for that one.
