Krzysztof Godek (1990), a skateboard filmmaker and photographer from Poland.
I hate it but I’m addicted to stack fresh clips.
The idea of this video, titled If You don’t skate – don’t start, was to collect the best possible polish footage during 1 year of shooting and focusing only on that. Living in a van and filming all day, every day, going to various cities all around Poland (mostly Warsaw) and close surroundings like Prague, Ukraine, etc. and shooting skaters from 17 to 40 years old. Quick moves, fresh spots or new ways of skating at popular spots, stylish landings only, quite heavy selection of footage, hip hop…
I try to film only fresh, interesting stuff. I just want to make a video that I’d like to see myself. I hope You’ll like it and find out more about our scene.
Take a look at this independent Poland video on Friday 27th of September at the Piazza Grande. Screenings start from 8pm.
Last year Vladimir hosted Peter Fettich in Kasarna, where he exhibited a series of more than 100 hand printed photographs taken in Fažana from 2013 on, taking over the whole space. This year he’s coming back with his debut photo book RISPECT THE BOUL!, that premieres in the Fažana DIY skatepark on Friday 27.9. at noon.
It’s in your face and it is unapologetic.
At a glance, his subject and narrative seem simple, even carefree. BW photographs depicting a scene… the making of DIY skateparks and the subculture behind it. But this is his home turf. The spectator dives into the imagery fast and hard. In deviation from mass branding or mainstream influences, the DIY scene is full of friendship, laughs, pain and sweat.
I feel, as if the author shifts me to places I know very well, but have never seen or observed in such a way before.
It’s time we step up the game! Kasarna ghetto open is an official Ping pong competition taking place in the open space near Kasarna on Friday 27th starting from 1pm with the registration of the players and from 2pm the game is on!
Not into Ping pong? No worries, DIY skate park session is near, 2 meters down You don’t skate either? Well fuck you and go for a swim 20 meters down. It’s all there!
Pandora’s box is volume one of a project Luka Pinto has been working on titled Crew Report. The video documents the Jersey scene between 2016 – 2019. It features Glen Fox, Ryan Cunningham, Dillon Catney, Roberts Krums, Eduardo Da Rocha, Jeremy Jones and Luka Pinto amongst many friends.
The video is called Pandora’s Box and the name is an idea that i had about Jersey looking like a neat little package of a happy clappy island, but in my view, holds a darker side where people are obsessed with money and become bored here so smash the booze and drugs.
Pandora’s box plays on Friday 27th in Fažana at the Piaza Grande.
Davy Van Laere photo exhibition is set up on Friday 27th in Fažana at the Piazza Grande, photos taken during the shooting of the video Mockba life by Paul Labadie.

Croatian video shot and edited by young skater from Pula, Raul Žgomba featuring skating by Zvonimir Mikić, Antonio Peković, Dino Coce, Nino Jurlina, and more. Tabula Rasa is the most awaited Croatian video after Nikola’s Solsticij and Nino Jurlina’s Brothers so be sure to catch it on Friday in Fažana at the Piazza Grande where the screenings start from 8pm.
Dno is a new video by our Russian friend’s Absurd skateboards. We asked them to tell us a little about this clip.
I took a little break to make sure we have this new Absurd clip. This week we finally went to the destination we wanted. It’s a small city called Dno. Dno literally means botttom. Maybe it’s the same in Croatian. This year with Absurd we were pretty much at the bottom with no boards and no idea how to keep doing but somehow manage to put it together and keep it going. So, we decided to make fun of the situation and go to a city called Bottom which is very small and obiviously quite shit for skateboarding. You got to be at the very bottom to consider this a skate spot.
Dno was filmed by Barabaka and Mikas and edited by Barabaka and it premiers on Friday in the old Fažana square Piazza Grande. Screenings start from 8pm.
On Friday 27th at the Fažana old square Piazza Grande we are watching Mockba Life by Paul Labadie.
First you get the brewsky, then you get the bread, then you get the vodka.
Bread in this case meaning clips and photos… It was beer if you were thirsty and vodka to celebrate… That’s pretty much how it went down this past summer when the Vans Europe crew headed to the Russian capital for two weeks. After Pfannman made sure everyone had their Russian visas in order the crew assembled in Moscow on June 21, Go Skateboarding Day. Max Pack and Romain Batard were on hand to film, Davy Van Laere was there shooting photos and the crew was large! We’re talking a big crew of Europeans (and one American) consisting of Daniel Lutheran, Victor Pellegrin, Axel Cruysberghs, Yeelen Moens, Albert Nyberg, Val Bauer, Joseph Biais, Kale Wiehn, Thanos Panou, and Pepe Tirelli all flown in and of course the Russian locals Kirill Korobkov, Roma Ivanov, Alex Krasniy, Boss, Vova Pavlov, Tolia Titaev and others were on hand to share all the amazing new Moscow spots (many built in the past 4-5 years due to the 2018 World Cup). And of course, the crew got that bread! It was like a bread factory… Edited by Paul Labadie (who would have been on the trip also had it not been for the birth of his new daughter) and packed with excitement is “Mockba Life”. So sit back, grab some vodka and enjoy.
