PTG '16 - KATOWICE, POLAND
Krzysztof “Chris” Lazik put together this rad edit of his local plaza: Pomnik Trudu Gorniczego Plaza in Katowice, Poland. PTG Plaza (a monument to miners) has been alive and kicking for 30 years, and it is a classic plaza—perfectly designed for big crews of skaters to film multiple lines at the same time. The city planned to destroy the plaza and put up a hotel, but the locals actually SAVED it by organizing and creating a petition. It worked, and the city even rebuilt the plaza and added some park elements as well. The opening of the video has some OG footage from the plaza’s previous incarnation; the second part is all new PTG footage. Thanks Chris for sharing this with us! We’re stoked to see that a true historical skate landmark was preserved in Poland!
THEORY - Matt FINK
Filmer Chris Jolly put out a Florida full-length last year called “Theory,” and one of the many gems hidden in there like Ponce De Leon’s Fountain of Youth was Matt Fink. Matt really knows how to put together a good-looking line. And we think that he’s goofy footed, but we’re not sure… it seems like 80 percent of this part is switch.
LET'S GET IT! - MUNICH, GERMANY
Marlon Lange’s full-length was filmed in Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia. The title pretty much sums up the vibe throughout: Ben Rappel, Fabian Lang, Juli Geibinger, Marlon, Paul Zenner, Vali Erlmeier and friends definitely get it.
Phillip “Say ha!” Ceja makes your head spin with his crazy technical part. Everything is on point here.
ODRON - ANTONIO PEKOVIC - ZAGREB, CROATIA
In “Odron,” Antonio Pekovic does tricks that are as spiky as his hair. Antonio doesn’t know that his part is gonna be on The Berrics; his buddy sent in the video without his knowledge. It’s a big surprise, just like most of the tricks that he does in this rad part.
