Mattia Turco is one of the most powerful skaters around in Milan and a great artist with his own technical painting skills that keeps evolving. He is part of our family.
This timelapse video made by photographer André Lucat depicts the making of Mattia’s first mural, painted on bastard bowl‘s main wall as a tribute to Vans for its 50 Years Anniversary that we celebrated at bastard store on March 25th, 2016. It consists of 5 days of shooting, condensed in almost three minutes and delighted by the great Ella Fitzgerald.
As frequent users of the bowl, we couldn’t ask for more!
Edo Paris wrote a consistent chapter of the skateboarding history of Milano for a couple of decades, at least. Everybody knows Edo… in case you missed something come to meet him personally at the bastard store.

We at the bastard store definitely took so long to start this program because we always had a sort of repulsion for schools and teachers (based on our personal experience both in skateboarding and in the wider learning field).
On the other hand we had so many requests over the years for lessons, schools, training and all sorts of HowTos (yes, people love them!) that the pressure was too much not to handle this matter. Also we’ve seen lately that the environment is over populated with all sorts of “skate teachers” appointed by some kind of “official organizations” pretending to tell you what is good or not and how. Even basing the teaching on some invincible method where you learn by not making mistakes.
Well… we think that’s mostly bullshit and we hope that you will soon learn to fall, rise and fall again being able one day to even build your own obstacles to overcome, enjoying the journey and not worrying about the arrival.
So we decided to do it our way and launched an Open Day in our offices on Saturday, 24 October to see how things will evolve, together.
