This is where the unprecedented expedition took place for the Element Wolfeboro Authentech campaign. It is a trip Element team rider Karsten Kleppan will always remember – skateboarding in the midst of stunning scenery, facing freezing temperatures where polar bears wander and days never end.

In honour of the Converse City Carnage Skateboarding Competition, June 2, 2012 at the Somerset Skate Park, Nookmag and Bigfoot Industries (BGFT) have produced a short film featuring two local skateboarders conquering skate spots in Singapore. Their journey takes them around the urban city, in and out of neighbourhoods and ollie-ing over obstacles.
Showing the local skateboarding scene and culture in its full glory, the skaters let their actions do all the talk as they skate with deftness and flair.
Aligning with the identity of City Carnage, the short film is set in classic black and white and it sees a continuation of the teaser.

After bringing his skate film LENZ to the big screen back in 2009, director Shinpei Ueno knew there were many more skaters and settings he wanted to feature, but didn’t have the time or means. Now four years later, the cinematographer is set to premiere LENZ II with footage from Japan, New York, and France, along with over 180 riders including Shota Kikuchi, Hiroki Muraoka, and Issey Yumiba.
The goal of this project was not to necessarily compete with American skaters and their gnarly talents, but rather to bring innovation to the visuals of skate cinematography. LENZ II will premiere this October with screenings in Osaka, Tokyo and Sendai.
