In late October 2014 Tom Derichs decided to do one last proper tour with the team before handing the TM-torch to Hendrik Herzmann. The focus was the exploration of new terrain in northern Italy. As Part of Italy’s Dumb Skateboards family Tom knows about all the advantages this country has to offer. Rookies Jan Hoffmann and Julian Ruhe joined Kalle Wiehn and Daniel Spiegel for a good time.
A Place in the Sun
from New Balance Numeric
For the first New Balance numeric video the team focused on the home of cinema and celebrity, Los Angeles, California.
They searched the spaces between the glamour, the fortune and the broken promises. They found that beneath its dazzling surface L.A. is as real and raw as any major metropolis on earth. Skate spots abound in the side-streets and empty school yards of this glitzy place in the sun.

Based on the idea of if walls could actually talk, ‘One Last Ride’ explores the memory and history of an abandoned warehouse through the last ride of a lone skateboarder.

Arbor Skateboards :: James Kelly – Burn It Down
from Arbor Collective
On a rare occasion, you see a video that makes you stop – stop what you’re doing, stop what you’re thinking, even stop how you’re breathing – a video that masters your emotions and alters your vitals. At that moment, when your heart jumps into your throat, and your nerve endings fire, you realize you’re seeing something memorable.
With that we invite you to see a piece we filmed with Arbor team rider, James Kelly, to support the launch of his new pro model. The final product stopped us in our tracks. It reminded us once again why in downhill skating James is called the American Dream. A title he’s been burning down for years with a humble approach and an unmatched intensity at speed.

The plan behind the #VansDustyLines project was to travel around Italy in search of forgotten places to skate and explore with just a rough plan and no clear idea about what to expect. The Vans Italian team ventured into several magical places all of which were either abandoned, partly destroyed and absolutely desolate. With a […]
