It’s time for the 9th edition of Un tranquillo weekend da paura, the skate contest/music festival on September 14-16 at Bonassodromo in Usmate Velate (Milan). Concerts, skateboard contest, food and drinks as usual.
Every time Nicola come visit us he teach us a new word from the urban dictionary. Today’s word is Brenso.
BreNso = Breve ma Intenso ( short but intense)
Short but intense, as Nicola do stomping a perfect bs noseblunt after 10 minutes training.
Ride Channel has just published the video of the Gumball 3000 tour with Tony Hawk, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki and Corbin Harris, around in Europe with a stop at the bastard store to skate the bowl… and leave just after.
P.S. Jaws enjoyed the wooden transitions we built here in Milan pretty much and manifest it at 3:46!
Last friday we went to the Punkreas show playing in their home town, Parabiago, near Milano were they started 24 years ago. Was a pleasure to hear the song Occhi puntati played with their former drummer “Mastino”. Super respect!
Hey, in year 2000 here at bastard we used that song for web clip of one of the greatest italian street skaters ever: Matteo Di Nisio.
Video quality is just so bad… who cares, this is what we saved from old harddisks.
Kingbrown is a super limited edition periodical, it’s halfway between a book, a magazine and an art zine. Each issue is handcrafted, delivered inside a silk screened brown bag which is designed and curated by some of the world’s leading innovators of photography, illustration and urban and skateboard art and design.
Inside Kingbrown you will find checkout and interviews of some of the most talented people involved in skate/art, there is nothing better to be inspired and connected to the subcultures we love most.
Top quality print, every page is a collectable item.
If you were wondering like me… here we have some answers: while Tony Hawk was stopping with some friends in Milan for a memorable session with us, Giorgio was going to his ramp to refresh some tricks. Switch mctwist.
He just sent in this clip and informed us that he will spend some more time in California and this coming weekend he will skate at a demo organized by Vans for the Metallica’s Orion Fest in Detroit. If you are around you know what’s the plan for the weekend!
We like surprises… And the one we received on Friday afternoon was particularly appreciated.
“Hello? I’m Tony Hawk, we are one hour by car far from Milan… Is it possible to skate the bastard bowl today?”
Last week we had the pleasure to host a terrific session in the bastard bowl. Chris Gregson and Mason Merlino with Joey Martin, sales manager at Unheard, shred all the well-know spots from Varazze to Milano. Obviously they swung by the bastard bowl for a night session with Jacopo Carozzi, Aref Koushesh and Ivan Federico.
On May 14th 2010 we lost a strong skater but above all a beloved and sincere friend .
