So, a little earlier this month Nike hosted a day where the Skatehalle Berlin was opened up to the public and as you have come to expect from us we were there to show you, the public, what went down. A video recap is something we do quite often but because this was a special event we chose a different route, we chose you, the skaters, to document the event for us.
What was so special about this event? Well, it was part of the new “Just Do It” campaign which focusses on getting skaters skating, skaters talking and mainly skaters just being active, together.
Besides that, two local skaters are part of the campaign, Melika & Mobina Nazari, two girls who came to Berlin from Afganistan and are now a strong fixture in the Berlin skate scene. They became a part of skating through workshops and now they took the role of giving them, a proud moment.
Furthermore, we also gathered to session the Bowl in the Skatehalle. A bowl that has been there for the longest and is worth celebrating but is also worth updating and with people like Fernando Bramsmark, Farid Ulrich & David Bachl it is easy to see why an update is needed to raise the stakes.
So in the end, a temporary extension was brought in and Nando rang the bell which signaled a new day for the transition part of the Skatehalle. Now press play and see people race, fly, skate, DJ but most of all enjoy themselves.
We can all agree that at the core of skate culture is a strong DIY spirit. But as skateboarding continues to grow the look and feel of DIY has changed, from professional skatepark builders to companies like Polar (and Pontus in particular) DIY still is omnipresent. Even though we welcome that evolution it is nice to see that some people still hold on to skateboarding’s punk roots!
BAUAMT is an initiative by skaters for skaters (mostly in Berlin). The park looks amazing and is reminiscent of some of the early ’90s builds, rough, weird but fun! So, with that said, it was only logical that Radio Skateboards would pay the place a visit. They all pulled themselves together and came all the way to Lichtenberg with a strong squad that was ready to rip. The result speaks for itself enjoy!
Every year, during the winter months skaters in Berlin need to find a sheltered home to skate. Snow, hail, wind, rain and -15 temperatures will make even the most hardened skater go looking for an indoor location.
Some go to public parks others like to get creative and sneak in somewhere warm. This “spot” is definitely the creative kind of location and with Valle Rosomako as the gatekeeper, you are assured that things will be fun and surprising.
