Martin van Drunen 'Aorta' Profile by Marnix Haak

This Martin van Drunen Profile is part of my second skate DVD called 'Aorta' which was released in 2010. I never met Martin before this project, but only knew his skating from online edits and liked it a lot. So when we kidnapped him from his Rotterdam area and took him on several tours, we really got to know the guy. Martin is awesome, a very motivated pal. We love you sleepy! Normally I would say "yeah it was a great time in Barcelona thanks for everything" but there was no 'we' since you slept all the time. -Marnix Haak ... Read More...

Amsterdam Week: Photographer Profile – Bojd Vredevoogd

Without Bojd Vredevoogd the Amsterdam Week wouldn't have been possible. Whether it was in the middle of the night or early in the morning Bojd didn't hesitate one second to shoot pictures and contribute all his freetime for the Be-Mag Amsterdam Week 2012. Bojd is the man you can count on when you need a badass shot. Although it's pretty difficult to get a shot of the Red Light District the 26-year old Amsterdam local isn't the one to disappoint or give up. He will find a solution to get things done. Always down to motivate others to give their best and catching the right angles with his analogue camera. Marnix Haak had the chance to talk to him and to ask him about his motives and perceptions on rolling, photographing, girls, party, clothes etc.?

‘The Breakfast Club’ touring through Belgium and France

The idea for the Breakfast Club Tour was to rock Belgium and France in a van fully loaded with nine skaters. We ended up leaving Amsterdam with only the four of us in a VW Con-fucking-vertible off to Belgium. Arne Elgersma, Bojd Vredevoogd, Marnix Haak and Robbert Snijder. Our tour planner Bojd spent the last few weeks looking for the finest, most ghetto abandoned places to get some unique footage for the DVD. The first weekend we ended up skating an old pool, a theme-park and spent the night in a creepy half demolished hotel called 'Kosmos'. Exploring these places at midnight was a great adventure by itself. ... Read More...

Up and Comers: Eric van Boven

I was fortunate enough to meet Eric in person this summer while visiting the Adapt Brand crew in Holland and he is a skater to look out for. Eric skates with a raw energy, has an eye for unique spots, and is always down to smoke cigarettes or have a drink or two. ... Read More...

Amsterdam Week: An Interview With Gijs Piss AKA The Inventor of the Real Street Contest

Gijs 'Piss' Peetsold has been an influential blader since the 90s. Sure he can shred, and inspire through blading, but his real strength lies in all the things that make blading badass off the skates. Media, events, brands, developing talented young bladers, he's had his fingers in all those pies. At his ripe age you'd expect him to take it easy, and let skating take the backseat. But no. He and his colleague (Amnon Klein) recently created an epic grindbox across the street from his work, and by doing so got half of the washed up generation of Amsterdam's bladers back on four/eight wheels. All in a day's work for this bald cat owning, single-malt sipping, cigar smoking, poker playing rollerblader. This dude is invaluable, not just for the world of Blading, but especially for those who's life he enriches with kindness, generosity and the ability to criticize everything to an early death. My man Piss.... Read More...

Competition Report: Get Out The Way Contest in Amsterdam

There was total chaos in Amsterdam when the first 'GET OUT THE WAY' edition went loose. Eighteen teams with thirty-six skaters raced on their bikes from spot to spot throughout the whole city. At each spot they had to finish a certain trick to get as many points as possible. We made an edit from the footage that the competitors sent us to give you a little impression of what went down on the 25th of August.... Read More...

'The Breakfast Club' in the Mind of Prins BernHARD + Leftover Edit

So Cavin 035 made a DVD. A skate DVD. And it’s a banger! This guy filmed on two different continents and even went to an island where people drive on the wrong side of the road and don’t get where the steering wheel should be in a car. And yes, I am talking about the country England. The country that once thought they could conquer the Dutch on water. And we all know that only "ze Germans" can conquer the Dutch. And the only arena they can do that is on land. Am I Herman Cain right now or what? Anyway, Cavin catched them all! ... Read More...

Cavin Brinkman on his Film 'The Breakfast Club' + Official Trailer

'The Breakfast Club' is the newest video project out of the Netherlands, aka Holland, or for some people just Amsterdam! That is precisely where the maker of this project is from. We are speaking of Cavin Brinkmann, supported by his sidekick, the no less infamous dog Bobby! Cavin is the dude that you see dancing in those crazy Dutch edits. Do not get the wrong idea though, Cavin is a guy that puts all his energy into what he does. Living in Amsterdam has not made him a drug addict that would abandon skating for a high – skating and filming skating is his high! ... Read More...

AORTA

»A pregnant woman far away ran after us, while screaming loud in Spanish. Because of San Juan, the whole beach was full of drunk, knocked-out and sleeping people. The screaming was just one of many sounds that morning, decorating the beautiful view. After walking through the sand for 5 hours, and being awake for more than 24 hours, there was nothing left to talk.«... Read More...
