Holy Stokes! A Real Life Happening
Last Friday saw the European premiere of “Holy Stokes!” take place in London, England where Dustin Dollin, Chris Pfanner, Daan Van Der Linden, Axel Cruysberghs, Rune Glifberg, Harry Lintell, Eniz Fazliov and Ben Raemers came along to show what they’ve been up to and hang out with friends old and new.
Before the film played at Hackney Picturehouse, the team hit up Parlour Skate Store for the private view of a behind the scenes photo show by Arto Saari and Jelle Keppens. Tons of London locals as well as a few blow ins stopped by to check out the photos in anticipation of the film to come. If you missed out, don’t fret; the show will be open until 11th June at Parlour.
From there, everyone hopped on a coach to take them over to the cinema and watch the film. The crowd was killer. Tons of noise in all the right places as Holy Stokes! visually smashed its way into the minds of the viewer.
It definitely fired everyone up as an impromptu session broke out after at the stair set opposite and after a solid pressure flip from Daan Van Der Linden the whole affair was shut down with a £100 bet that a fairly drunk Chris Pfanner couldn’t ollie the double set without warm up and on a borrowed board.
Chris took the £100 in two tries.
The crowd then moved onto the MOTH club where – in some cases – burritos were literally shoved into peoples mouths as the bar opened up and Sam Ashley, Shelley Bones & DJ Dogger fired up the tunes to fill the dance floor.
