When we discovered that Russ Pope would have been in Milan for the opening of a group art exhibition, we immediately asked him if he could make a new masterpiece on the main wall of the bowl, to be inaugurated with a healthy skate session with friends. And he agreed.

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, schoolstraining 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.
