Battle At The Berrics 6 - CHRIS COLE vs MIKEMO CAPALDI


MikeMo has a big bag of weird tricks and he's not afraid to dig deep. That coupled with his speed, consistency, pop, and crazy tech skills, he's gotta be pretty intimidating to go up against... this is going to be good. The final battles begin this weekend.

DESILLUSION MAGAZINE x THIS IS ERIC KOSTON


Desillusion magazine, supported by Nike are proud to present their latest video "This is Eric Koston", a video portrait that pays tribute to the Legendary street skateboarder, Eric Koston. As one traces the evolution of modern street skating from its earliest foundation to the unbelievable heights to which it has risen, Eric Koston has served as a constant innovator each step of the way. Since turning pro in 1992, Eric Koston has remained unfadeable in a cut-throat contest capacity as well as on the raw street level that prides itself in taking no shorts, all while never seeming to take any of it all that seriously. The wheels are always in motion, even when off his board, as Koston has helped advance innovation in skateboarding through his dedicated approach to footwear design (his creativity has yielded several classic skate shoes already) and by co-founding The Berrics with long-time pal and former roommate, Steve Berra.

CONVERSE SPACE 001 BCN


On Saturday 18 May 2013, Converse took over a disused section of the Port of Barcelona to create the first CONS SPACE, an initiative to transform disused urban space through skateboarding, art and music. Kenny Anderson and Pontus Alv collaborated with local artists Txemy Basuelto, Fernando Elvira and Ruben Sanchez to design a skate spot inspired by the abandoned industrial materials and incredible location. They were joined by Rune Glifberg, Tom Remillard, Remy Taviera, Javier Mendizabal, Jerome Campbell, Harry Lintell, Danny Sommerfeld and Ben Raemers for an epic all day session. CONS SPACE 001 BCN wrapped up with live music from The Bots and Black Lips.

TIM KNOLL - ORIGINAL BIKE TRICKS


By the looks of it, BMX freestyler Tim Knoll has tired of just doing manuals, tailwhips, and backflips, which he all does with relative ease. Sliding and scraping along the pavement and jumping over obstacles only to land on the side of his bike, some of his tricks look he could have confused his ride with a skateboard, but that wouldn’t capture the sheer breadth of his skills. Working with his ride like a gymnast does an apparatus, he blends BMXing with astounding moves you never thought were possible with a bike.

THRASHLANTA: WATERSLIDE SKATEBOARDING


We all have pipe dreams, but recently Nike SB professional Justin Brock, HUF team rider Dan Plunkett, and Atlanta’s own Pat McClain went out and lived them. The group ventured to an abandoned waterpark to skate a full pipe, using the natural flow of the park to shred the park for a Thrasher feature. While pivots and frontside ollies might not sound like much of a feat, when performed on these large-scale ramps, the maneuvers seem infinitely more impressive. Despite gravity, Brock delivers tricks normally reserved for a backyard half-pipe, rendering this video awe-inspiring. Enjoy the above.

Sixteen-year-old skateboarder Mitchie Brusco didn’t go home with the X Games gold medal, but he did make X Games history by becoming the first to stick a 1080 (three full rotations) on the X Games MegaRamp.

His young friends Tom Schaar, 13, and Jono Schwan, 16, are the only other skaters to ever land the trick. Brusco, however, is the first to pull it on the incredibly intimidating MegaRamp.

PEN AND PAPER WITH NYCHOS


Drawing from his art, what goes on inside the racing mind of NYCHOS belies any serenity his peaceful exterior may convey. The Austrian artist specializes in painting and illustration, using highly colorful, often dissected figures as expressions of his imagination. NYCHOS points this motif to his family background in hunting, an early childhood experience that has since grown into one of the more graphic styles today. Hypebeast got the opportunity to sit down with the artist to discuss early influences, evolving away from working with acrylic to work with spray paint, and more. Viewers will even get a look at a custom illustration made for Hypebeast in this installment of Pen & Paper.

ALAIN GOIKOETXEA FULL PART


Alain Goikoetxea has been skating for Volcom since ’98. In order to celebrate these 15 years of loyalty, he put together a full online video part with footage he’s been gathering over the last few years. For those who don’t know Alain, he is born and raised in the Basque Country and lives right up the hill from the famous La Kantera skatepark in Algorta, where he shreds almost every day and after all these years of skating it, still finds new lines and tricks that have never been done before. Alain is one of those guys where age doesn’t affect his progression, style and control. Skateboarding is a natural thing for him. Alain’s gnarboots never stop amazing us.
