Plaza killer, long hair don’t care and all-around friendly Swede, Simon Källkvist teamed up with Makke Bengtsson. Together they took their local ledge spot to the next level.
2 weeks ago in Copenhagen, we celebrated the launch of Rowan Zorilla’s well-deserved pro model shoe “The Rowan Pro”. We first presented you with the Dutch version of the weartest but today you get the Nordic one.

Thanks to Vans for the support.
Vans actually invited some people from their European team to join in on the fun. People like Jordan Thackeray came in and joined people like Simon Hallberg, Samuel Norgren & Victor Larsson Blé in testing the shoe.
We guess that it must be the time off work that motivated both Simon and Victor but it is impressive to see 3 Scandinavians, 1 spot and 3 days of skating turn into an amazing result.
Accidentally, our friend and photographer Conny Mirbach was present at the famed Prague plaza to witness this destruction and he has since proclaimed that Junkyard’s own Victor is now one of his favorite skaters.
The piece was created by lensman Makke Bengtsson who is actually one of the nicest people ever.
Anyway, if you are not convinced see for yourself what 72 hours of skating Stalin Square can amount to.

Whatever you do the days will go by, one after another, some fast some slow. Victor Larsson Blé, Jonathan Carelle and Vilbur Fritzon used their time in London wisely and came out on top!
What do you do when you have a team filled with talent are located in a country with “real” winter weather for multiple months and are located in a relatively small city?
You create an indoor skatepark for the locals and invite your team to come and rip it. That is basically what happened when Junkyard opened their JunkPark in Trollhättan, Sweden.
We are sure the locals will have a lot of good times there this winter.
Stockholm is putting it down! After a long period of relative silence both this new video by William Engström and last weeks video called Green show the Swedish capital city to be a great skateboard destination with a healthy skate scene.
We are sure that we will see more from a couple of these kids this year.
I personally neither know the crew nor have I ever been to Stockholm, but this video makes me want move there and join them. A very solid independent skate video that has the right balance between adolescent crew life and grown up skateboarding.

The times of big budget productions are over. Now everyone and your uncle got the chance to hit the 1.000.000 views. We really like that and we also have the feeling, that some of the pressure is gone this way. Power to the inaccurate! Get your camera out, Streetlab Stockholm did the same thing!
Featuring: Simon Källkvist, Samuel Norgren, Elias Mensi, Tom Botwid and Victor Larsson Blè.
Sour Skateboard’s Nisse Ingemarsson recently stayed a week in his lovely hometown Stockholm and in the good company of his friends he produced this nice edit that really makes you want to go skate and, moreover, probably to consider Stockholm as your next travel destination.
