Element Brand’s brand new video just got released and it is the debut of one of our first Unsigned Hype candidates, as well as the official welcome for Leon Charo-Tite as one of the new amateurs on Element. No question that we are proud of him, but we also knew that he would find his way.

Special thank you to Element for the trust in us to host the official premiere in Berlin.
One of the best things about moving through time is that you get to see things move, change, and evolve through ups and downs. Paul Herrmann has had a long and hard-fought road to where he is now as a director working for many a famous fashion house or other big brands. Still, he knows where he comes from, and who he came up with. Thus in a way, this video is an homage to all of that road he has traveled together with his friends.
it is lovely to see, it is his best work (in skating) yet and it shows that you do what you do because you love to do it. Enjoy!
Another one from Berlin! After Leon’s video from last week, Sergio Ben Mario now released his new Berlin-based video through our friends over at Pocket Skate Mag. It features a lot of friends and familiar faces from Berlin and we are stoked to finally see what they have been up to!
Our good friend Leon Moss dropped this video out of nowhere and it blew us away. He told us since he started to film for various brands and saved clips for possible future projects, he never ended up continuing to make his own videos after his “So Silly” video. A lot of footage piled up on his hard drive, so instead of letting those clips get dustier and dustier, he decided to edit this video. We had no idea he had so much up his sleeve. Amazing work Leon! We can´t wait for the next one!
Make sure to go back and rewatch Leon’s previous edits HERE.
When Nature calls you better pick up. Element Skateboards brought their team into the wild and they came back with this video. Proud to see LEON up in their as well.
Featuring Phil Zwijsen, Jaakko Ojanen, Madars Apse, Nick Garcia, Rafa Cort, Leon Charo-Tite, Vinicius Costa, Vitoria Mendonça, Victor Cascarigny, Cesar Dubroca & Alex Amor. Concept by Phil and filming by Clément Legall.
Sergio Ben Mario was out in the streets of Berlin for while to make this video happen. A lot of your favorite skaters from Berlin are in the edit such as Kalle Wiehn, Julian Ruhe, Kaio and even Danny & Peter, just to name a few because the list goes on and on.
Leon Charo-Tite is our next "Unsigned Hype" and he is from Freiburg/Germany and that part of his heritage can be an issue. Many have gotten stamped and sidelined as the "German Skater". To our U.S. audience, that's kind of like being stamped Canadian or Brazillian in the early 2000's.
