HIJINX Net – In an apartment in Hollywood, CA, the infamous “Mota Man” is pinching your sack and stealing your girl. Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams. Right Next Door to Hell, on Sunset Boulevard, Erik Hamamoto skates an 15-stair aluminum rail with an uphill runway. A fantasy rail that had yet to be skated at the time, Erik uses his illusion and surfs out a boardslide. Into the night, at a 6-6-10, Beagle films an Andrew Reynolds line down all three sets of stairs. With an improv move, Beagle pops up his board and runs down the second set of stairs. Andrew lands the backside 360 and the TRV900 gets another clip. At the Bundy Hubba in Brentwood, CA, a stone’s throw away from 875 Bundy Dr, Atiba Jefferson practices his golf swing and Antwuan DIxon kills the Hubba. Circa 2005
HIJINX Net – The Wilshire Financial Tower was built in 1962. This structure is commonly referred to by skateboarders as the WIlshire 10 or Wilshire 15. The building received a Merit Award from the Southern California Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 1963. The entrance has an 88 foot wide forecourt framed by one story wings. The lobby features a four-section colored mosaic glass mural by Gyorgy Kepes, 12 feet high and totaling 57 feet in length. Welton David Beckett’s architectural firm designed this building. Interestingly, the architectural firm also designed some very interesting buildings and structures that are relevant to skateboard culture. His firm also designed the World’s Fair project in 1964, to NY skaters this is know as “Flushing Meadows”. Another famous skate spot designed by Welton Beckett’s firm is the Chase Tower in Phoenix, AZ. This pot is know as the “Bank Banks”, made famous by Chad Muska and Colby Carter. The firm also designed the Capitol Records building located in Hollywood, CA. Anyways, let’s get down to brass tax. In pursuit of the completing the “Bake and Destroy” video which was available as a free DVD in every copy of December 2012 Thrasher Magazine. The BAKER skateboards team was in crunch time to get the final clips for the video. Warming up at the Wilshire 10 stair, Justin “Figgy” Figueroa switch backside lipslides the set and avoids oncoming traffic. Andrew Reynolds gets half Cab noseslide, while Michael Burnett documents with a photography sequence. Migrating to the big boy side, a young Franky Villani performs a coping dance with a feeble-to-50-50 and then considers a 50-50 to manual. Figgy, pursing the premeditated switch backside 50-50, get what he came there for. A cold blooded reptile (Lizard Kind) feeds off the heat of the make. The next day, in San Pedro, CA, Furby nollie kickflips a fatty to flatty between the pam tree field goal. It’s good… Circa 2011

Titus – “The Danish Destroyer” – it’s hard to find a more fitting nickname for Rune Glifberg. Anyone who has seen Copenhagen’s own Flip Skateboards pro skate in person will rave about the incredible energy you can feel just by watching him drop-in. There’s nothing quite like standing on the ramp platform as Rune slams a 2.5 meter high Madonna down onto the coping. But, what would Rune have become if he wasn’t a pro skater? As a Dane, it may seem obvious that he would have become a fisherman, but maybe not? In the latest episode of “The G-Files”, you’ll find out which BMW Rune loves to drive, with whom he’d like to have a “dream session”, and how Rune plans new skate parks! „The danish destroyer“ – einen treffenderen Spitznamen für Rune Glifberg lässt sich wohl nur schwer finden. Jeder, der den Kopenhagener Flip Skateboards Pro einmal live hat skaten sehen, wird von der unfassbaren Energie schwärmen, die man alleine beim Anblick seines Drop-Ins in eine Transition geradezu selbst spürt. Steht man dazu auf der Plattform der Rampe und wird Zeuge, wie er einen 2,5 Meter hohen Madonna aufs Coping knallt, ist eh alles vorbei. Doch was wäre Rune eigentlich geworden, wenn er kein Skate-Pro wäre? Als Däne läge eigentlich Fischer nah, aber…? Welchen BMW der Liebhaber dieses deutschen Herstellers gefahren ist, mit wem er gerne eine „Dream-Session“ hätte und wie Rune an die Planung eines neues Skateparks herangeht erfahrt ihr in der neusten Episode von „The G-Files“!
