Stand Up Paddling
BY HENRIK FAHLÉN
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. (in Swedish)

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.

What is PKN anyway?
What's Pecha Kucha Night? It’s a community event where presenters are given six minutes and forty seconds to share a story, a hobby, an experience, or pretty much anything else. The Pecha Kucha format is also called “20x20,” because each speaker will have 20 slides that will display for 20 seconds apiece.Why the funny name? Pecha Kucha was developed in Japan, where pecha kucha is a common word for chitchat. More than anything, Pecha Kucha Night exists to get conversations started! The audience can share lots of questions and comments with each other and the presenters during intermission and after the event.So, what kind of presentations are we talking about? Will I be bored? You will not be bored. An array of topics is covered at each PKN! Past topics have involved: Travel, hunting, crafts, science, health, sports, philosophy, creating art, and building a house of mud and straw! PKN presenters aren’t professional speakers—they’re just people with twenty images and less than seven minutes to share stories with the community.Is this a sales thing? Absolutely not. In fact, PKN is a nonprofit organization. We just love chitchat.Is PKN family-friendly? Yes! Each presentation is suitable for all ages.

White Spots and Doubt
In 2012, David Maney wrote and performed a theatre-show based on his experience being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

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。
