Celebrate Javier Sarmiento’s Iconic Style Via “Jarana”

It’s good to see the amount of attention that Javier Sarmiento has been getting lately. He is one of the Spanish legends who, alongside Dani Lebron, Jesus Fernandez, and Enrique Lorenzo, helped define the laidback technical style that is synonymous with Barcelona skating. “Jarana” mixes some of Javi’s seen and unreleased footage captured by Enrique Mayor into a three-minute edit set to the flamenco music that it is named for. Check out one of Spain’s finest in action above.

Watch How Old Decks Transformed into Custom Benches in this Video

Watch Welcome Skate Shop staff and their friends turn old decks into custom benches in this video released by Vans as part of their efforts to promote artists and creativity. Welcome Skate Shop is based in Leeds, UK.

What’s great about this bench is that you can remove the top (the one made with old decks) and now you have a skateable bench. It has storage too so you have a place for your new skateboards or whatever needs storing.

A skateboarder may need to replace their decks in a few months to a year, depending on how hard they grind and how often they ride. Probably millions of skateboards are discarded each year and most of them end up in landfills.

This is just one of the ways worn-out decks can be repurposed. There are also initiatives to recycle and repurpose old wheels to keep them out of landfills.
