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.
