Bob Burnquist’s “Dreamland” – A Backyard Progression

Bob-Burnquist-Dreamland-1-MindTai
This has to be the most next level skate section I have ever gazed upon. At 36 years old, the legendary Bob Burnquist is still pushing the envelope and progressing the sport of skateboarding to extraordinary new heights. This is his first full section since 2010 and it is all filmed in his backyard! It features a ginormous mega ramp, a huge hip, a helicopter, some skydiving, and a ridiculous arsenal of tricks that I am almost certain only he has pulled off. This whole video is next level. Check it out!

Mid May Converse put forth the CONS Space in Barcelona. The goal was to transform an disused urban space through a few of our favorite things, art, music, and skateboarding.  It took place in an abandoned industrial playfield put together by Kenny Anderson and Pontus Alv. Local barcelona artists Txemy Basuelto, Fernando Elvira and Ruben Sanchez  were hired to paint the surroundings giving some life to the once dead area. The skaters Rune Glifberg, Tom Remillard, Remy Taviera, Javier Mendizabal, Jerome Campbell, Harry Lintell, Danny Sommerfeld and Ben Raemers all threw down some massive tricks to make the event a killer session. Check out the “Spot-On” content they collected below!

As kids, we were always figuring out ways to piss off the public and do exactly what we wanted, most of the time that meant skating whenever and wherever we damn-well pleased. After skating at the park all day everyday, we discovered we could unplug the vending machines and plug in our own flood lights to light up the park after dark and score sessions all to ourselves. Overtime the cops caught on and started to write us tickets for “stealing electricity from the city.” This only scared us off for so long…
One night under the full moon in late February, we (the MindTai boys) decided to head out under the bright moonlight and score our favorite local skate park with no one out. After a brief spliff session we quickly set up the lights and got to skating. Throughout the session there were thoughts about the pigs spoiling all the fun, but it never happened. Only an all-time session with our best friends and a couple randoms that saw the lights from afar. Here’s the result of that epic night…
