The honor bestowed upon the Palace Skateboards team is much deserved. It’s easy to follow trends, but to pave the way for yourself in this modern world is always an impressive and refreshing sight. Lev Tanju has filled the gap in London, for what he believed was a stale and regurgitated skate scene. The idea was to bring something fresh and different to the table, and despite all the success he’s received; Lev seems as if he’d be equally as stoked if the only people who knew about his brand were his friends filming lines on their VHS cameras.
The man behind the the lo-fi vids and Palace Skateboards, Lev Tanju, has no qualms about speaking his mind, making tongue-in-cheek commentary about skateboarding worldwide, knocking different trends in London and advocating for black skateboarders. But, it’s all in hopes of making skateboarding lighten up. It’s the kind of humor where, if you’re offended, you’re taking it too seriously.
We want to share with you the series of visuals Palace has dropped on the world; in the short time that they have been making waves. There is something so captivating about the analog recording process of filming via VHS rather than digital. The gritty and authentic feel to all of their videos leaves one wishing they were hanging out with the Palace crew catching wreck. Check out some video’s below!
