Срив by Vitosha Skateboards
Fueled by the communicative and federative energy of Vladimir 2020, Bulgarian skate filmmaker Veliko Balabanov had instantly started working on the first Vitosha Skateboards video, БЛЯН the following year, leading up to its materialization just in time for a premiere at the next, and yesteryear’s, edition. Now, the itch seems to have only persisted since, as Veliko is back this year to present his second-ever full-length effort: Срив.
If БЛЯН roughly translated to hopeful idealization and longing, Срив instead refers to a collapse, be it physical or emotional, describing exactly what we went through to create this new project and be a part of Vladimir this year […] We put the VX away and into the closet, instead favored the good, old, trusty Panasonic — and started to work hard. Features Yan Lozov, Veliko Balabanov ‚Petar Vladimirov, Nikola Bahchevanski and friends.
Витоша Skateboards is a local brand based in Sofia, Bulgaria; skater-owned, and motivated to push the skate scene in Bulgaria.
