If you are into FA/HOCKEY‘s video aesthetics you will probably enjoy this a lot. Very dark, low-resolution images paired with flashing lights and a very fitting soundtrack. Jacob Ortega did a great job editing this one and we are looking forward to what they will release in the near future. Check their Instagram HERE.

“MILO” by Andres Garcia
“MILO” is one of those videos which leaves you with the heartwarming feeling that the skateboarding future is in good hands. Andres Garcia did a great job filming and editing this one. Makes you want to go out and have fun with your friends. We love that!
“4th Dimension Group Inc” by Cooper Latimer
When Cooper Latimer is not skating in front of the camera he is behind it filming his friends. He recently released a cool new LA-based video featuring his homies. Besides the classic spots in LA, we love to see the more unknown spots and hidden places of the city. Good work all involved!

“PART-TIME JOB (2020ish)” by Daniel Wheatley
Daniel Wheatley put together some clips from the 2020 lockdown days and combined them with a few recent ones resulting in this very nice video featuring the Palace LA shop boys and friends. Check Daniel’s work for Lotties HERE.
Cooper Latimer in “COOPA”
No, this very nice Cooper Latimer part is not brought to you by Whiskas. The channel is called MR. WHISKERS INC. This seems to be a brand new creation by Cooper and his friends. We love to see the lesser-known and more hidden spots of LA.
“its all good” by Nicolas Marti
It´s all good! Nicolas Marti is back spreading joy with this ten-minute video. He and his friends visited the City of Angels to meet more friends, skate, and hang out with Chris Milic. They even took some pictures with Antwuan Dixon. It seems they had a great time :).
Check Nicolas’s previous full-length HERE.
SPANKY’s “HORSES” PART
While the world seems so dark and unfair at the moment, Baker Skateboards is providing us with the very much needed aid to keep us from going insane. Kevin “Spanky” Long just dropped “Horses” – his new part and it is lovely, to say the least. Baker Boys are doing everything right, it seems.
“driveby” by Kyle Geldheart
Close to 20Min. that just flew by. Kyle Geldheart just released a video called “driveby” and it’s showcasing the next generation of skaters coming out of California. A video featuring Cyprus Blanco, Curran Stagg, Cruise Mosberg, Smiler & Justice Lora.
You can buy their shit HERE.
Cooper Latimer in “coop”
Sometimes you stumble over something new and you think to yourself: “wow, that´s really nice!”. We had the same reaction with this short but sweet video named “coop” starring Cooper Latimer. He came up with some spicy tricks and Tyler Smolinski added the icing on top with really good filming and editing. Also, if you‘re wondering what pants Cooper is wearing, he might have made them himself.
“Shawarma” by Elliot Katz & Matheo Chavez
We all know that the best Shawarma is to find in Berlin and maybe that’s the reason we got gripped opening Elliot Katz’s mail from a few days ago. After watching this independent skateboard film from Los Angeles we became even more interested and began to answer Elliot’s mail with this sentence:
“Wow! Amazing video. Will post it tomorrow for sure! Thanks a lot and please keep sending us things. Really appreciate it!”
So, the next time you think about sending us a video just find a good title, spend all of your time filming a few years in the streets and release an outstanding independent video project with all of your friends. Simple as that!
Just kidding, keep sending us your stuff to Daniel@place.tv & Roland@place.tv.
Kai Hillebrand – Just A Minute Away
For our #63 issue we traveled to the city of angels to shoot an issue together with an eclectic group of people.
People ranging from Hyun Kummer a.k.a. @Versace_plug, Guy Mariano & Eric Koston, Nyjah Huston, Jim Greco & Mark Appleyard all added their 2 cents to our video and issue.
Kai Hillebrand or Kaio, as most people tend to call him, was one of our main protagonists for this issue and during the shooting, he once took us aside and asked if we could save some of the footage for another project. Well, we said yes, the project didn’t take off and now we decided to ask our filmer, Peter Buikema, to remix to footage.
Whether you are in Los Angeles right now, or his local Ratingen, Germany you should try and enjoy, relax and go skate afterward! We know Kaio would like all of you to follow these instructions to a tee.

Vans Presents – Lotties Skateshop
You gotta have love for a true skate-rat style skate shop. Lotties is a strong staple inside and outside of the scene, they are based in.
Stefan Janoski – Everyone Hates Poetry
This year marks 10 years of Stefan’s shoe with Nike SB. As such we get multiple looks, we get Trust Fall, we get a talk in Paris and now we get a look at his creative side paired with some really good skateboard moves.
All things being as they may this is a really cool look behind the curtain and into what Stefan does on the daily.
Andrew Allen – “DOUBLE A”
Sobriety leads most pro’s back on the path to a productive skateboard life. 12 steps can turn back into 12 stairs again all of a sudden and for AA this has been the second coming of his career.
Romain Batard – Giddy #10
A new Giddy is upon us and with all other episodes of this series, this has a concept, a very simple form follows function type of concept. You view stuff on your phone, you film stuff on your phone so this one is sized for viewing on your phone.
Anyway, enjoy the dudes in L.A.
