Long Distance Skateboarding: dove iniziare

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on TumblrShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someone

Gli articoli di questo sito sono in inglese ma alcuni di quelli relativi allo Skateboarding su lunghe distanze sono in italiano. Il motivo è semplice: divulgazione.

Nonostante lentamente qualcosa si muova anche in Italia, si tratta pur sempre di un argomento sconosciuto alla stragrande maggioranza della popolazione. Moltissimi skater che ho incontrato tra il 2015 ed il 2016 mi hanno raccontato che per loro un punto di partenza sono state le poche guide/articoli che hanno trovato qui: questo mi rende oltremodo felice e forse sarebbe il caso che le aggiornassi, c’è ancora tanto da dire.

Ma prima di “tutta la tecnica” e tutti gli incredibili record che si stanno frantumando in questi anni, a coloro che mi chiedono dove inziare dico: lasciatevi ispirare!
Alla fine lo skate è solo un mezzo, certo inusuale per percorrere medie/lunghe distanze, ma comunque non certo incredibile. Ciò che importa sono le avventure e le esperienze che vi saprà regalare.

    Airone by Merk, Tonsberg Norway, October 2016

    This trackside is done at the hall of fame outside Tønsberg. It’s been painted since 10.09.2001. The day before 9/11 the sts crew painted “terroriSTS”, the day after America was hit by the planes. Since then, legends as Loze, Kid, Swet and Jame hit the spot. We still paint it, next time the Italians are invited.
    The piece is done fast, but with respect to one of the humblest, coolest cats in the game, Airone. Thank you for good memories and laughs. See u next time brother.

    There’s nothing more amazing then having friends rocking your name around the world. This one has been painted by Merk STS in Norway during October 2016: thanx brother, it’s an honor I don’t deserve but I’ll try to do my best for more good memories and laughs!

      PUSHA! Long Distance Skateboarding Marathon – Milano 2016

      PUSHA! is an informal long distance skateboarding race which is held on a 20km distance (half marathon).

      There are few races of this kind in the world (although during the last years they have grow up everywhere, especially in the US), and the fact that Milano has held for the second time such a competition is quite an extraordinary event, considered the modest space where skateboarding is always relegated in the city.

          Opium - Milano 1997
          While searching for the right flow, you may generate an accidental little gem. I never tried to develop this style anymore after this time, but I still love this piece, it’s just missing a nice simple background.
          …that old original Montana white was crazy good, covering everything like toothpaste!

            Good sketching it’s not that easy

            Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on TumblrShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someone

            If you’re sketching to prepare a street production, you’re free to use every kind of trick. Few black & white lines can be enough: the rest of the idea is drawn in your mind ready to be used when needed. But if you’re sketching as a form of training or fixing your style, the paper becomes your street and the game is much more difficult. How many years will your sketch survive before you will judge it outdated?
