I was honored with a quite sweet award from the European skateboard community, the 'best film-maker of 2014'. Along with a trophy, Red Bull pretty much told me I can choose any place on earth and film a short piece. I scrambled through a world atlas and thought that Madagascar would be the ideal place to celebrate this award as well as explore the streets of this exotic island along the Indian Ocean with some good friends.

Produced by Red Bull
Directed, Filmed & Edited by Patrik Wallner
Featuring Barney Page, Denny Pham, Nestor Judkins, Wilko Grüning, Brian Dolle, Gosha Konyshev
Photography by Lev Maslov
Text and French interpretation by Kirill Korobkov

Here is Kirill Korobkov giving a short intro to our trip: Madagascar sounds a bit like something from the pages of a fantasy novel. Everyone knows that this place exists, but it’s so remote that it is almost like a myth. The big island resides on Africa’s east side and is a rare destination for outsiders, isolated by both sea and distance. In terms of the skateboarding? Madagascar just might be the perfect mix of originality, adventure, vacation and the unpredictable unknown.
