It’s that time of year again! The The Blackjack Project threw another kick ass rollerblader only skate session at Projekt X Skatehalle in Trier (Germany).
I showed up pretty late yesterday, i just finished snowboarding in France and raced to Trier in a damn blizzard to get a few lines in and film a few clips and here is the result. Featuring Patrick Ridder (Valo), Eugen Enin (USD) and a bunch of other bladers. I’m sure more happened before i arrived so be on the look out. - Tyriek Gibson.
Filmed on 29 December 2017. Location: Trier Germany. Music: Mndsgn - “Yahlubba(nnu)”.
I visited the homie Tien Chang in Taiwan last summer to skate and hang, we go way back. We used to blade with each other in the Midwest before he moved.
He is one of my favorite artist, in fact i still have a canvas painting he did of a Des Moines Skate Park hanging on my wall. When I told him i was going to Korea to visit a friend I let him know that he was on my list as well.
The tripped turned out awesome, I even extended my stay a few days because I was having so much fun and I got a dope as tat for his lovely lady. Thank Tien for letting me crash, I do plan to come back when I can save up enough money. - Tyriek Gibson.
Music: “Kyoto” by Yung Lean. Locations: Chai-i, Kaosiung, and Taipei. Skaters: Wang Guan-Wun, Hou Cing-Hong, Wu Yi-Cing & Tzuhao Liu.
Ulm Skate Hall Jam Session with USD rider Gino Dangers. “Had the pleasure of riding with Gino and Hank from Ulm the day after Thanksgiving. Gino got a new pair of USDs recently and I got a new camera. So I hit him up and told him i wanted to test out my new camera functionalities.
He did more than just provide me footy, he destroyed! I wasn’t planning on editing any of it until Christmas but i couldn’t sit on this shit. He did full cab true porn 6 times consecutively, so i used all three shots. Thank Gino, Hank, and Shawn for letting me test my camera on you guys. The camera is starting to make more sense to me now”. - Tyriek Gibson.
Skaters: Gino Dangers (rider for USD, Kaltik, and the homies), Hank Wischnath the homie, Shawn Collins the homie, Zimi covanaj new homie, Sergej Hergert new homie. Music: 4 Mars - Na Daadihi (Bandcamp).
Hung out with Kev in South Korea this summer, I used to skate with this guy back in 2014. He is one of the chilliest dudes on blades ever! He is a Valo distributor and a kick ass rollerblade instructor responsible for the huge increase in little shredders coming out of Korea.
His little prodigies (Kang Dong and Jay Yoon) are absolutely amazing at rollerblading, both of them have surpassed me in the sport and i have been blading longer than they have been alive! - Tyriek Gibson.
Music: Travis Bretzer - Death Rock (Bandcamp), Bones and Xavier Wulf - Wedontbelieveyou (Bandcamp), Mac Demarco - On The Level (Bandcamp).
Here are a few clips from B4 Winterclash 2017 (Planet Park, Belgium). The comp was pretty hectic and was hard to keep track of where skaters were at times so i missed a few clips. Enjoy. - Tyriek Gibson
