Ositos Crew Segment from MDR
Check the clip above, it's a segment from a TV show on MDR in Germany
that was played throughout Europe recently. It is in German, however there
is some good footage in there to watch. Big up to the Ositos crew who
were featured in the segment, nice work guys - awesome promotion for Streetboarding!
NASS Streetboard Invasion Update
With the recent news of Worlds now happening at NASS we thought we'd give you the lowdown on what's going on with the NASS invasion we have planned.
As stated in the 2008 Worlds Press Release, the contest itself is invitational only, due to time constraints. We are still going ahead with our planned invasion of the public parks. We want to show everyone that there is also a scene and interest behind the sport, not just gnarly pro riders. So for this we will need everyone's help. We're looking to get everyone there who has a Streetboard - whatever your level of riding is - to come show your support, skate, walk around with your board, hang out with us etc. Get your mates to come, get everyone there to show your support for Streetboarding! If you're interested and want to be kept up to date - e-mail Josh at email@example.com to be informed of updates. Also, make sure you get your NASS tickets ASAP!!
