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 .
Marcin’s friends organize yearly the “Marcin Day”, an occasion for rembembering Marcin Solecki in his favorite way: skate, music, bbq and writing!
Follow the facebook event page link for all the info.
Daniel Cuervo, Steve Caballero, Giorgio Zattoni, Eddie Elguera, Jocke Olsson e Joshua Rodriguez are the official Z-Team. JIMMY’Z wants to make it right!
GZatt is so inspired by the Combi lines… we got this from the pen drawing below that we found on some shipping documents in the warehouse!
It’s going to be fun this Saturday, May 11th at the Vans Pool Party in the Combi. If you are not in Orange you can follow the event on the live web streaming.
The historical brand Jimmy’z, founded in Malibu California by Jim Ganzer in 1984, has finally arrived here at bastard store and at a small number of selected dealers in Italy.
It all started with an idea particularly innovative system of short pants with a Velcro waist closure called EZ-IN, EZ-OUT – hence the ‘Z at the end of the name Jimmy – sold on the beaches of Malibu from the trunk of a Buick Woody.
Skaters, surfers, artists and musicians such as Steve Olson, Dave Hackett, Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Eric Dressen, Natas Kaupas, Sergie Ventura, Dave Duncan, Scott Oster, Vince Klyn, J. Riddle, Jack Nicholson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ry Cooder and Phillip Dixon have contributed to the success of the brand and many of them continue to do so today. If you missed the 80s and the 90s or you were simply distracted, take a look at the online portfolio and read the interview with Jimmy on Opening Ceremony to understand what we’re talking about.
“I think the highest artistic expression is made up of ideas and states of mind, not only objects” – JIMMY GANZER
Nikolai Danov endorses the new bastard spring summer 2013 clothes.
He may change his haircut, he may change his clothes but he can’t change his classic aggressive style as ever.
spizzate sto video… (roman slang for spread this video)
… And we do it.
Romantic is a video project by Michael Quigley, filmed in the winter of 2004 between Rome, Milan and Barcelona. It features the haydays of Roman skateboarders in the mid 2000s, among which Nikolai Danov and Marcin Solecki. This edit, although incomplete, is dedicated to his memory. Thanks Mike and keep up the good job.
Aref “Bobby” Koushesh is a strong and fast skater who land tricks with an extraordinary naturalness. He’s a consistent frequenter of the bastard bowl but he also likes the Parco Lambro and the DIY Creedence transitions, as you can see from this clip by Yeah.
Giorgio Zattoni has been in California for a few days already aiming to the Vans Pool Party which will be in May (yes, he traveled in advance!). He just pointed us to his brand new videopart published on the Powell Peralta website.
Check out the video above filmed at the awesome Big Air bowl of Camerano (AN, Italy) and at the Marianna Hardcore. Gnarly!
P.S. You may not be aware of the crazy requirements necessary to enter the biggest pool contest in the world: Giorgio got in by receiving a ***wildcard*** from Mr. Van Doren himself!
This morning, at the bastard store we received a visit from Giorgio Zattoni, who was on his way to Malmö, Sweden, to participate to the seventh edition of the Vert Attack on March 15/16th. You can get a general idea of the incredible level of this contest by taking a look at the riders roster… check out the live webcast for more!
P.S. How many skaters can say they have an official skatebag like the one in the picture?
