There are many things to say about this Vans trip to Milano, things like Samual Norgren holding his own by keeping close to himself, Helena Long, Aurora & Miriam’s ripping, Florentin Marfaing’s magic, but most of all we feel strongly about Chris Pfanner bringing his mother on tour. Simply amazing!
Tag: Max Pack
Thanos Panou’s “Misinformation”
Athen’s Thans Panou leaves 2021 with a happy ending. Very entertaining video for Mob Griptape and a great introducing concept by none other than Chris Pfanner himself.
Vans Europe Presents: Going Nowhere
This is a big thing for the Vans German team and with a person like Max Pack at the helm, you know you are going to get some good shit. But what about the behind-the-scenes? Leon Moss did a lot of the heavy lifting in Berlin. So we turned to some of the riders and asked them to turn on their friends, unfortunately, most of them remained cordial 🙁
Leon Moss tells all about his friends
About Roland Hirsch
Hirschi has been on Hitachi-airlines since the first fusion festival in 1997. Frequent flyer miles because he keeps blasting airs!
About Julian Ruhe
Julian Ruhe’s allergy-collection is bigger than his bag of tricks.
About Kalle Wiehn
Kalle Salzburg is so German that he named his dog after a German potato dish.
Roland asking about Roland (Hirsch)
You had some surprising tricks in this video, did your move from Emerica to Vans open up your bag of tricks?
The Switch Frontside 360 I had done before years ago. I did one Marocco over a hubba, and it just fit. but yeah, I don’t do that trick that often, I keep forgetting about it (laughs).
The Pole-Jam Pressure Flip was another surprising one!
That one just just happened. I sort of flipped like that on some of the shove it tries. I did a shitty Pole-Jam Shove-It and ended up going back for a better one. I landed the shove one fast, and figured out that if I put my foot in the pressure flip position before I pole jam that I could flip it. Once I figured that out I rode away a few tries later.
You went on a trip with Vans to Hamburg, who surprised you the most on that trip?
Schianta (Daniel Lepori)! He is so quiet, so nice but all of a sudden he will just bust out something crazy!
What about Max Pack, how is he as a TM?
Max Pack, is the best TM and a good soul!
Kalle Wiehn Versus?
Max Pack vs Leon Moss?
Similarities are more easy to find that the differences, they both inject beer into the session and make it fun.
Who is your favorite team mate?
Julian Ruhe or Joscha “Bonez” Aicher but I don’t see him as often especially since he moved to Barca! To be honest Julian really needs a raise in pay, he has been ripping so hard lately (laughs)!
Julian Ruhe about Leon Moss
Leon is always motivated to get a clip and won’t ever give you the feeling that you’re taking too long to get the trick!
He also has a very strong opinion on which trick could look cool on which spot, and he isn’t shy, he will give you that extra creative input as well!
He seems to know exactly what trick each skater could or should do at the spot, he definitely has a vision.
Thank You, Coach!
Maxi Schaible about his brother Niklas Schaible.
I don’t know what to say except that when we are together people say: “Oh I didn’t know he was your brother” (laughs)!
Joscha Aicher about Max Pack.
Max Pack a.k.a. Max Zapf is one of my best homies. We traveled and skated many spots in many different countries. I would like to say that we pushed each other to become better. The difference being, he focussed on filming and I focussed on skating! It is great that we both ended up over at Vans. Even though we only really see each other on tour, we still talk just about every day and our friendship remains a deep one. I am really happy about all that he accomplished and support him to the fullest, I know he poured his heart into it! The only thing he has to learn is how to drink for real!
“Er hat noch nie richtig GEZAPFT!”Joscha Aicher about Max’s drinking skills.
Ofer Or – YO BIG!
To use some suitable SLAP terminology this part was very SHALOM! A project put out by the lovely people over at Dolores magazine. And some filming by many a Place affiliate. Ofer is sick, his skating is very solid and the co-signs he gets can only lead us to believe he is a solid person as well.
Vans Europe – “Tom’s Tales”
This is the big one from Vans’ European division. So sit down crack a brewski and enjoy!
Antiz – Breaking Point
A new rough ass Antiz video made by our good friend Max Pack featuring:
Robin Bolian, Teemu Pirinen, Pepe Tirelli, Gabriel Engelke, Mikael Germond, Victor Pellegrin, Quentin Boillon and Dustin Dollin & Skankie as special guests.
Place Present – A SHRN of absurdities
Sometimes you just can’t express yourself in a language that is not your own, sometimes things are best expressed in your native tongue. The jokes, the customs, the tones, and your culture are all cropped together in the way we speak. I mean how would you express the loss of 3 days of footage in your own language? Kurva, Scheisse, Merde, Godverdomme, Caralho or maybe just a simple FUCK!
Anyway, our friends from Munich made it work and we are dropping this just in time to give them their slightly belated birthday wishes! Congratulations on turning 6 and we hope that the shop and the teams will stay as Bayrish as SHRN needs to be!

Max Pack “Zunggu”
SHRN has a new team rider and funnily enough, he is a team manager. Max Pack Vans TM and maker of bold claims put his money where his mouth is and puts out an amazing part.
“CABEZAZO” – SHRN in BCN
Munich’s most dangerous skateshop strikes again. This time Joscha Aicher, Daniel Ledermann, Max Pack & more having a good old time in Barcelona. Dope one, Boys!
Vladiks Valencia Vacation
Vladik Scholz went on a 9 days vacation trip to Valencia but still had some extra horsepower and came back with some nice footage filmed by Max Pack.
Hackelona – by Farid Ulrich
Due to its mild climate, Spain has always been a preferred travel destination for Europeans especially in the winter time. So also Farid Ulrich and his friends traveled to Barcelona to take a break from the gloomy and cold weather in Germany. Fortunately, Farid’s good friend Vincent Heller had brought his camera with him and filmed whatever came in front of his lens with the result of this pretty tour clip, which is edited by Mr. Ulrich himself. Hack!
