It is no secret that Alex Ullmann is a good skater right? If it was a secret his cover has now been blown. We have been out skating with Alex on more than one occasion and he is the type that gets something at every spot… Ok so now that we did the sweet talk, we can tell you that Alex can also be the strong silent type, he has a wallflower type of quality without actually being one. We thought it would be nice to launch his new part in conjunction with a little questionnaire so you, me and everybody can get to know a bit more about Mr. Ullmann.

Hey, Alex let’s start this thing… Where have you been?

One second ago?

I just started eating my freshly fried pasta with pesto.

…one minute ago?

I was staying in the kitchen preparing my meal.

…one hour ago? 

I was at a tutoring class for business accounting. I force myself to go there two times a week because in May I have my final exam. By then I have to see trough this.

…one day ago?

My roommates and I cleaned up the apartment. It was really necessary. After that my girlfriend Nina and I went billposting on cruisers in Marburg. It’s a good secondary income. 

…one week ago? 

I had to work till 3 o’clock p.m. and afterwards I met up with Iwan (Martaller) and David (Perez) at the indoor skate park in Giessen. We had a few beers while we were replacing the old stair set with a bank – so you can ride the straight rail from the left side now, too. It’s really awesome!

…one month ago?

On New Year’s Eve, I had a small party with my roomies. We just hung out playing some board games and went downtown for some beers later on.

…one year ago?

I have been to Spain for the most legendary tour ever – The Hell Ride. Paul Zenner, Fabian Lang, Maxi Schaible, Niklas Speer von Kappeln, Mario Ungerer, Dominik Schneider, Leo Preisinger and myself we rented a minibus and drove all the way from Almeria to Lisbon. Unfortunately, I had to fly back home 2 days earlier for my midterm exams, so I missed skating in Lisbon. But it still was one a one-of-a-kind trip.

…five years ago? 

After my volunteer social year, I started working at a community for handicapped people for two years, which was a really interesting and valuable experience that lastingly shaped me.

…ten years ago?

I was living at home with my family in Echzell and after school, I always went skating with my homies Sven, Steffen, Henne, Matthias and Felix at the local funbox. 

…15 years ago?
I moved from Wölfersheim to Echzell with my mom and three sisters. Three years later I started skating after always seeing some skaters while grocery shopping with my mom. Some day I just went there with my board and waited for them to show up. We hung out ever since.

…20 years ago?

At that point, I was five years old and living with my family in Wölfersheim where I also went to preschool.

…25 years ago?

25 years ago on the 12 February 1991, I was born in Bad Nauheim. It was an uncomplicated singleton breech pregnancy.

Enjoy Alex’s new Barcelona Vacation Part!

In the beginning, this HUF X Stil clip might have you thinking this is one of those nice “Cruise through the city.” type of clips but as the clip progresses Mr. Binder steps it up culminating the clip with a really good Ollie.

The German Huf team flew out to Bangkok to what they thought would be a nice Airbnb apartment and some good weather and some nice looking spots. Things turned out slightly different, first they were thrown out of their apartment, second the weather was so hot that they had to pick their battles and only skate the spots they really wanted, and thirdly the spots looked great but they were quite rough making you wonder how the guys still managed to produce so much footy in such difficult conditions.

Video featuring: Louis Taubert, Alex Ullmann, Stephan Pöhlmann and Nils Brauer.

Brad Cromer has been videotaping skateboarding for some time now and to be honest he is getting really good, the other noteworthy thing in this short video is the Austyn Gillette clip. We have not seen anything from Mr. Gillette in a while – there where rumors about him being injured – so to finally see him back on the board is certainly a good thing.

If you don’t know about JP Blair you ought to! He has been responsible for some of the best videos out of NYC. 4myset is his newest offering featuring some of New York’s finest like Dick Rizzo, Josh Wilson, Mark Humienik, Chachi and many more.

Richmond Virginia, is where most of this clip seems to take place, if I’m correct the home of Quasi skateboards (formerly known as Mother Collective) the clip features the likes of Gilbert Crockett, Jake Johnson, Josh Wilson and Dick Rizzo. This clips delivers some quality skateboarding set to some good music, a simple and timeless concept that makes you want to go out and skate.

Mr. Noseslide schlägt erneut zu und das schon zum zweiten Mal in dieser Woche. Jetzt kommt Josh Matthews Full Part aus dem letzten Transworld Video Perpetual Motion. Wir sind Fans, Smutje ist Fan, du bist Fan. Wer mehr über Josh lesen möchte klickt HIER.

Die Spekulationen um Dylan Rieders neuen Board Sponsor scheinen ein Ende zu nehmen. In der neusten Ausgabe des Skateboard Mags (Dylan Rieder Cover, FS Flip NYC) gibt es dazu folgendes Statement aus seinem Interview:

“..I’ll be going over to the Fucking Awesome Camp. Dill and AVE are my brothers. I like what those dudes do, and they asked me to come over and ride for them, and it seems like the right move.”

Damit verstärkt er Kevin Terpening und die beiden Initiatoren Dill und AVE.

Dylans Part aus Alien Workshops Mindfield:

Joey Pepper bekommt seinen ersten Signature Schuh bei HUF Footwear. Für das Modell hat er einen schlichten Schuh designt, der in der Szene wohl gut ankommen dürfte, bringt er doch alles mit, was das Skaterherz begehrt: Angefangen beim Ollie Pad über eine verstärkte Fersenpartie und atmungsaktives Meshlining. Die weiße, vulkanisierte Sohle liegt auch bei HUF weiterhin im Trend und Joey bei uns sowieso.

Gestern hatten wir den Part angekündigt, hier ist er nun – Joey Gueavara ist Neuzugang bei Think Skateboards. Das Thrasher schreibt: “Some people just make skateboarding look good. Joey is one of those people.”

HUF Footwear hat “Commercial #37” mit Brad Cromer im Netz.

Cameo Wilson zeigt wie progressives Skateboarding funktioniert. Man lernt einen Trick im Park, geht an einen Streetspot und versucht diesen zu übersetzen. Nicht, dass ihr das nicht schon wüsstet, aber seht selbst…

Daewon Song und Cooper Wilt zocken ein Game of SKATE.
