Federico and Roberto – Almabtrieb 2014

Alexander “Tiki” Frischauf (Streetluge-Austria.at) shoots out another great video, this time from last year’s Almabtrieb 2014, featuring Federico Barbezio and Roberto Marasca, the Verdicchio Race organisers. Thumbs up for a great choice of music 🙂

Another good news which popped out recently is that Almabtrieb is coming back in 2016 and the race is announced to be a part of the BigMountainSkate series, held on a furiously fast road in Austria. Woohoo!


The Gipsy Team says “We will be back”

The notorious skate gang from Italy has been around for a while now and it looks like they don’t intend to leave. Well, that’s good to know 🙂 Bring it on bit***, the game is on! One of the bangers and a good friend of mine, Stefano Barbizzi also runs a project in his basement, the Tuck Yeah Apparel. You should check out the stuff he does, it’s cool. Even James Kelly wears Tuck Yeah stuff, which confirms it’s worthy 🙂

It’s official: Pablo Quiles joins Skoa team

Pablo Quiles joins SKOA Trucks team

This is kind of like a “last year’s snow” but since yesterday, he got a well deserved feature on their website. So now, it’s official. Congratulations! Here’s what Reinhold Uhrner from SKOA Trucks says about it:

For us Pablo is a very important skater and we like how he lives the skate life. We are impressed how he and his spanish friends build up the whole Gnarlicante scene (Salsito House, Gnarlicante Tours, Gnarlicante Longboard Shop, etc) he is really focused in all he is doing and with his passion for skating he is pushing the whole European skate scene. ~ Reinhold Uhrner

Nicely said, Reinhold and well done, Pablo! We’re looking forward to see what this collab has to it.


Jorge Pernes belives he can fly!

Cult’s Jorge Pernes was out there playing with some prototype wheels. If you’ve missed it, check out this short video featuring him flying off the board while doing a Switch 180. “You won’t belive what happens next” style!

Patrick Lombardi drops another sick video featuring DB Keystone 39 and DL Aerolid Design

Remember Patrick Lombardi from this year’s wettest KnK run with Filippo Salerni? The young Italian swagger dropped in with another cool video featuring DB’s Keystone deck introduced earlier this year and DL Aerolids manufactured by David Lombardi.

Often to be seen slaying local hills with his Gipsy homies, Patrick hit some races this year and managed to place himself on the 27th position in IDF’s European rankings in Open Skateboards category. At Verdicchio Race he did awesome by winning the Italian FHIP Championship.

The highlight of my racing season was the Verdicchio Race. I won the Italian Championship and was so stoked about some pros paying the respect. Yeah swaggers! Haha! ~ Patrick

He managed to finish off the season by messing up his ankle on a miniramp while failing a Rock to Fakie. Bad luck, I guess. We hope to see his gangsta-ass back on the board again by the start of the season 2016. Get well soon bro!

DL Aerolid Design

As mentioned earlier, in the video Patrick features David Lombardi’s DL MACH 1 aerolid helmet. We’ll release an interview with David soon, taking a closer look at his awesome creations, so make sure you stay tuned for that. In the meantime, you’re welcome to follow DL Aerolid Designs via Facebook.

David won the Italian Championship in 2014 wearing this helmet proving it’s functional design and quality. Desinged in 2013, the DL Mach 1 was created with a fusion of his earlier models Snake and Vaiolet.

DB Longboards – Keystone 39

DB’s Keystone 39, a progressive downhill and freeride longboard deck features a comfortable radial concave with micro drops to keep you locked-in in every situation. In case you wanna get funky, it has a fully functional kicktail. The boards is constructed with a poplar core, triaxial fiberglass reinforcement and carbon fiber stringers thus providing you with a stable stiff and lightweight platform.

As this is becoming a standard in the industry, Keystone also features a poured urethane at the tip and tail to protect the core in cases of hard impact and preventing potential delamination. It’s fully sublimated graphic is infused directly into the thermoplastic base, you’ll be able to enjoy it forever.

To finish it off, here’s what Patrick says about it.

The Keystone 39 is my favourite board so far. It’s nose and tail protection makes it indestructible. The concave is very comfortable and thanks to the micro drop it features, I don’t have to use a footstop anymore. It’s a perfect board for my skating style. ~ Patrick Lombardi
