Theeve trucks has just released a signature truck for JIMMY’Z team rider (and bonafide god amongst men) Giorgio Zattoni. The promotional video they made to reveal the truck is every bit as beautiful as the truck itself – give it a watch!
With all of the noise being made over the summer about Tas Pappas and Tony Hawk’s battle for the 900 during the 1990s, we thought we’d revisit our very own Giorgio Zattoni’s personal struggles with the trick with this old video, uploaded in 2006, which talks about what led to him being the second person to make the 9.
And yes, we’re aware that the subtitles are barely legible – this video unfortunately predates the notion of “HD”. If you want to just see the documented attempts at the 9, skip to 5:31.
Spoiler alert: the landing on this is BEAUTIFUL, and probably still the best (non-Mega ramp) 900 ever done.
JIMMY’Z team members Pontus Björn and Jocke Olsson joined Andree Böhlin, Tor Ståhl, Erik Berglöf for a ripping vert session in Stockholm.
(The skating is as rad as you’d expect, but this is worth watching for the psychedelic Olsson moment alone. You’ll know it when you see it.)
Once upon a time, Steve Caballero checked in at the Berrics, cruised around a little bit, made a few jaws drop and then got out.
We’re not sure what’s rarer at the Berrics: rails, shaped boards or Cab’s trick. We won’t say what it is because we don’t want to spoil the surprise.
A little late with this week’s video, but it’s worth the wait; JIMMY’Z freestyle rider Tony Gale joined the lads from Late Tricks for their annual series of freestyle shows at Somerset, England’s NASS festival back in July, and the edited highlights video contains all manner of flippy, spinny, flatland tech nonsense. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the next seven minutes!
Going back to a classic from skateboarding’s dark ages this week with a look at JIMMY’Z legend Steve Caballero’s part in “Eight”, the 1991 video from Powell Corporation. Yes, Powell Corporation – this is from when Stacy had left, and Powell/Peralta was no more.
It was a weird time to be a skateboarder.
