Stand Up Paddling

BY HENRIK FAHLÉN
IN VARBERG

SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world.

Longboarding: It's All Downhill from Here

BY JAIME LANGEWEG
@ VOL 26 ON APR 09, 2015

Skateboarding has become a massively commercialised sport. Wich completely contradicts the rebellious nature and roots of this pass time. These past few years we have seen an uprise of the longboarding movement. This new group has remarkably different values and ideas than the classic streetskater. But, in the end they still practise the same sport. Can these differences progress the sport as a whole? 

It’s All Downhill from Here

In this presentation, Jaime Langeweg tries to answer the question: why do I skate? Jaime explains what it means to have flow in one’s life. The act of fluid style and movement in skateboarding translates very well to other aspects of life. For example, having flow in your writing, drawing and even studying can massively improve your productivity.

Joseph Tame

Presenting at our Tokyo Designers Week edition PechaKucha Night (Vol. 107) on Wednesday, October 30 is our good friend Joseph Tame who will surprise you with his talk about how he (may have) brought 2020 Olympics to Tokyo! Whilst wearable technology has a history tracing back to the abacus-on-a-ring of 1600's China, it was only once Joseph Tame started wearing multiple health monitors and live streaming cameras during the 2009 Tokyo Marathon that it really took off. A trend setter within his own parallel universe, Joseph reveals how his passion for combining mobile technology, sports and art (may have) led to Tokyo being awarded the 2020 Olympics. たくさんのテクノロジー機器と一緒にマラソンをされる有名なランナーJoseph Tameさんも10月30日のPechaKucha Night 東京(東京デザイナーズウィークにて)に登場されます。
