LENZ2_PREMIERE_FLYER_LA_02

Approximately 4 years ago, skateboarding in Japan received a proper depiction in the cult video aptly titled LENZ. Since that time, the world has continued to get smaller – and Tight Booth Productions, Shinpei Ueno & Evisen Skateboards teamed up to produce one of the most unique & culturally rich skateboard films to date. Featuring over 180 skateboarders, LENZ II travels throughout Japan, France, and New York City to show that skateboarding flourishes best when allowed to mutate and adapt to the diversity of global terrain. This video proves that although styles may differ internationally, creativity and expression are fundamental to skateboarding.

PERMANENT Distribution is proud to host the Public U.S. Premiere of this special film, held at the Cha Cha Lounge at 2375 Glendale Boulevard in Los Angeles, California on the evening of Thursday December 12, 2013. While RSVPing isn’t required, arriving early with an RSVP is the only way to guarantee entry if the venue fills. You can do so at: http://lenz.eventbrite.com

This 1-night event is sponsored by Permanent, Evisen Skateboards, Broadcast Wheels, and Modus Bearings.

WAAR Presents: A Repurposed Skate

18 May 2012, 19.07 | Posted in Art & Design, Culture, Fashion & Footwear, Products, Skateboarding, Video | Comments Off

Along with Dig A Pony owner Nicholas Musso, We Are Runts (WAAR) have been putting together a series of videos narrating the process of repurposing the “stuff” that reminds us of our youth; nostalgic items of naught.  The project manifesto states, “As we get older, our natural accumulation of “stuff” is inevitable.  Over time, an occasional claustrophobic freak out results in a cleansing that will thin the heap we’ve amassed, but regardless there always seems to be that stuff that never finds the bottom of a trashcan.  Depending on what you do or did, this stuff could be clothing, cards, photos, stickers, skateboards, records or CDs, etc.  One inevitable fate exists for them all…the dump, or someone else’s heap of stuff.  Very rarely do these things stay with us throughout our life, and we often reminisce on times when we had them, could fit in them, or even when we had a purpose for them.  It’s a shame to look back and wonder how much life and use was actually left in this “stuff”, or what a fresh eye could [have] made of them… The idea was to take them, regardless of condition, and define a new purpose for them, pool skewers and cruiser shapes… Enjoy.”
