Skate: Rollaball

Over on crowdfunding website Kicktarter right now is a documentary about skateboarding……………….. “Blah blah blah skateboarding saved my life maaaaaaannnnn”…. WAIT! This shit is serious. This is a documentary about Ghanaian polio survivors who strap flip flops on their hands and tie themselves onto makeshift skateboards to play hard hitting sketchy as fuck skate-football in their local empty car parks. During the week these guys weave in and out of cars begging for change but on Sundays they don their colours and make the Premier League look Premier Lame. Time is almost up for this Kickstarter so if you could do without a few beers maybe slide some cash their way before its too late. From the trailer it looks like this could end up as a really great doc and get these bad boys some well-deserved exposure.

Skate: Across the Pond with Tom and Vincent

Some videos of Tom Remillard and Vincent Alvarez on a trip to Europe for Dickies. A bit of guest riding from Tim Zom. The two videos are cut from the same trip footage so there is a reasonable amount of overlap but I thought I’d stick both up as they’re hardly long and the music choices are different at the least.

The film showcases the photography of Nils Svensson (Malmo), Stu Robinson (Belfast), Alex Irvine (London), Rich Gilligan (Dublin), Sergej Vutuc (Heilbronn) and Bertrand Trichet (Barcelona/Tokyo).
