This is the teaser for the new upcoming video under the working name Solsticij. Behind this project, stands Nikola Racan, from Fažana, who has been working on it for several years already.
It’s the first skate video from Croatia that goes beyond national boundaries and takes this task seriously, which means it’s not just another local skate video. You’ll catch the glimpse of the Croatian skate scene, but what really moves the whole project is the strength of one of the biggest social tools: skateboarding.
“I would like to Introduce to you Nikola Racan of Fazana, Croatia who is helping keep the Underground lit, by organizing an International Skateboard film festival for the past three years. We spoke with the event’s creator, Nikola to learn a little more about it’s history and its future. Enjoy!”
