We've just received word from Axel of Streetboarding-berlin.de about their Gallery of photos of sessions with Pipo Grosso and Thomas Kienle last week. The guys are doing a bit of a tour at the moment and they got these skate's in before heading to the Mallorca Streetboard Contest. One of the photographers even broke his tailbone during these sessions. Check out the gallery here. Keep us updated guys!
Worlds Vert Video
A preview video has been posted online of the Vert Contest from Relentless NASS showing you how Gabi Munoz became the 2008 World Vert Champion. The video is made by Penkat. It's just a preview at this stage but check it out and look forward to more coming soon! Nice work guys!!
Trick Tips from Propellercat
The guys over at Propellercat have started making Trick Tip videos for you guys wondering how to do certain tricks. This will be especially good if you're new to Streetboarding and are wondering how to progress. They currently have 2 videos on their YouTube channel, one on how to Lipslide, and one on how to Smith Grind.
Keep an eye out on their website as they plan to release regular Trick Tip videos covering all kinds of things.
Radius is back!!!
For those of you that have been Streetboarding for a while will remember Radius from a few years ago, headed up by Matt Jacobs. They kind of disappeared but have now resurfaced with an awesome new Website and clothing. Their new website is now online over at rideradius.com. For sure go check them out to see what they're up to and all the media they have there. Speaking of media, they also sent us this SICK Gallery of photos from The 2008 World Streetboard Championships at Relentless NASS last weekend. Go here to take a look.
