Starting from the ground up, we sourced the think tank of our team riders and flow team and began designing a board to continue our #SkateEverything mentality. The goal was to create something that could be used in our home on the streets of NYC, all the way out to the hills and mountains of CA, and everywhere in between. The Shrike (or the Mystery Model as it was known for the majority of it’s development) is born of the collective desire to skate, developed using high detail rendering and molding, and presented to the world ready to take on anything.
There comes a times in every boy and girl’s life when attraction to the same and/or opposite sex overcomes passion for hobbies. The first film ever produced about skateboarding, Skaterdater (1965), tells a story with no dialogue.
A group of boy skaters are suddenly at a point when one of the boys sees a young girl, and becomes interested in her. This causes a rift with the other boys, who challenges him to a skating duel that goes down a hilly street.
Episode 2 of our popular new ‘A Portuguese Adventure’ series is now live and what can we say, it’s weird. In classic form, our spanish idols Perropro, Bruno and Toti have done it again; managed to make us ask both “how the f do you skate like that” and “where the f do you come up with these scenes?” And that is truly the beauty of a Perropro film.
