Event Coverage : La Leonera

Racing is heated down in Colombia and the crew finishes off their season of National Races with a Championship near Cali, Colombia. Low altitude, hot, humid, jungle vibes. The race course rips through a village that is shut down annually for the race. Certainly not the fastest event in the world but the course has some incredibly challenging corners, watch out for the bridge corner!

Kebbek Skateboards – Lost in Havana

Warren Lane Pictures presents “Lost in Havana”. This film chronicles the outlandish results as earlier this year a band of skaters from Canada and Austria smuggled in a pile of Kebbek Skateboards into Cuba to give away to underprivileged kids. It’s clear from the get-go that good intentions and communist bureaucracy clash like velvet dingle-balls around the windscreen of a 1982 Lada 1600 sedan. Juergen Gritzner, a pro skater from Austria walks us through a comical fish out of water story that is vivid in colour and rich in cultural awkwardness. Award winning film maker Soren Johnstone (Play with Fire, Hicks on Sticks) filmed and edited together a very enjoyable story despite his own run in with hallucinogenic jelly fish. The film held its world premiere in Slovenia earlier this month and so far has received universally positive accolades.

William Royce: Skate Everything

Alaska and Florida transplant, Will Royce (Bustin and Gullwing), moved into SkateHouse Los Angeles a little over a year ago and has been shredding any terrain he comes across. Follow along as Will reminds us that skateboarding is not about one style, but whatever you make it.

“Bustin Boards is proud to present the premier video collaboration between legendary filmmaker Brett Novak and the skate everything talents of William Royce. Shot recently in some of the most unique and diverse terrain Southern California has to offer, this video is a reminder that skateboarding has no rules or boundaries. Whether you’re smashin’ down mountain roads or flippin’ your shit at a local DIY spot, it’s all skateboarding and it’s absolutely all yours.”
