A window inside the Almost Universe, based on random segments of remixes, organised chaos and having fun with that stunt wood we call skateboard.

WILLOW WILD PUSSY

Impact “Double” is Willow’s weapon of choice, especially when he is skating big drops. The main reason he likes Impact “Double” is because they last longer while keeping the same feel as when he first set it up through the end of the board’s life.

Above is a quick line of Willow skating his Impact “Double”. Willow is in California at the moment working on a few projects. Get ready for more Willow in your life!

JEAN-MARC DOUBLE SET SESSION

‘MARRAKESH EXPRESS’ YOUNESS AMRANI VIDEO PART

There’s no place like home. And as the world continues to grow more globalized and culturally cross-pollinated, many of us are increasingly blessed with primary, secondary, and tertiary homes as a result of our globetrotting upbringings and divided heritages. Youness Amrani was born to Moroccan parents shortly after they immigrated to Hasselt, Belgium. While he grew up on the European continent, with frequent visits back to Morocco as a child, his primal roots remained firmly planted in Northern Africa. Having not returned to Morocco in more than a decade, he set out with his brother earlier this year to make the pilgrimage home to Kenitra and pay a surprise visit to his grandmother, who still lives there. In the process, he also planned to ride his skateboard, collect photos for the following article over a 10-day stretch on the northern tip of the African continent, and cover the road between Casablanca and Marrakesh by way of Rabat, Kenitra, and Agadir. Welcome aboard the Marrakesh Express.

WINNER OF THE ALMOST UBER LIGHT

Almost Uber Light Some High Tech Shit Limited to 500 Worldwide, the Almost Uber Light is the world's most technically advanced skateboard, developed by Rodney Mullen. Enter the competition below to stand the chance to win one with R1200! Uber Light Carbon Foam Core the board within a board technology.

Congratulations to Katleho Exito Morajane for winning the Almost Uber Light skateboard deck competition!

The Almost “Uber Light” Deck is exclusively available from Revolution: revolutiononline.co.za/product/almost-uber-light/

Jean-marc Johannes tests out the new Almost “Uber Light” deck, the most technically advanced skateboard deck in the world.

Limited to 500 worldwide.

Deck inside a Deck: This was developed by Rodney Mullen and C.L Composites. After experimenting with many different layups, they arrived at a method using an actual deck within a deck. The internal carbon fiber foam deck is ultra light and nearly as stiff as metal. It acts like rebar, or a skeleton embodied by a standard 7-ply layup. It also vastly improved the lateral rigidity. The deck wears, slides, and looks like a normal 7-ply, but its lighter and has a supernatural pop last lasts far longer than any normal deck.

Balance is at the very heart of design in anything that spins, flips or flies. By reducing weight and adding rigidity (particularly laterally), the deck reacts more quickly to every movement while flipping faster and more precise.

LEWIS MARNELL TRIBUTE SONG

Ben Harper is helping to raise money for the family of Australian pro skateboarder Lewis Marnell, whose untimely death in January at the age of 30 left his family in dire financial straits. A lifelong skateboarding enthusiast and friend to skaters around the world, Harper has reunited with the Innocent Criminals for the first time since 2007 to re-record the song “Jah Work” from his 1997 album, “The Will to Live.” The song is now available on iTunes, with all proceeds going to the Lewis Marnell family memorial fund.

“Lewis was a brilliant artist and athlete not to mention a truly beautiful soul. We loved him and his contributions to skating, and we thought a song would be a wonderful way to celebrate his life and help his family.” said Harper.

Marnell died Jan. 18 from complications of diabetes, a disease he lived with from the age of 10. He did not allow his condition to impede his meteoric skateboarding career. He skated with such passion and style that can’t be replicated, he made all his tricks look effortless and his love for life was infectious. In 2008 he made his mark when he went pro for Almost Skateboards and he was named Skater of the Year from Australian skateboarding magazine, Slam. Marnell got married in late 2012, and died only a few months later, leaving his family with a large debt. Global efforts to help the family financially ensued, with Harper’s being the latest.

All proceeds go the family of Lewis Marnell.
