Website updates may be infrequent right now but the team keeps rolling on. Our latest addition is one of the best bowl and vert rippers in the Czech Republic, Michal Musil! Go check out his profile, and if you ever find yourself in Prague and near a bowl, say hi to the guy doing bonelesses in the deep end, as it’s probably Michal!
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.
The latest German addition to the JIMMY’Z roster is Münster’s Tom Schulze. Joining an already solid European team of rippers, he tears through some of the sketchiest transition with power, creativity and style – making him a perfect addition to the Z-Team.
Keep your eye out for him in the footage from Titus’ recent DIY Riot in Münster – he’s the guy shredding the bowl in an olive bucket hat*.
*JIMMY’Z bucket hats coming in 2016… maybe
The latest addition to the German/Austrian division of the Z-Team is Vienna, Austria’s Lenni Pfeiffer. This 13 year old wünderkind is a street ripper, and we look forward to watching him develop over the coming years!
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!
