Inside What Youth Issue 18 Julian Klincewicz pens a wonderful description of the rapidly growing skateboarding scene in Russia blooming around the brand PACCBET’s first clothing drop fueled by Tolia Titaev and Gosha Rubchinskiy. In it Julian writes about the brand being DIY embodied. And how naming the brand was three years in the making — the name literally translating to “sunrise” or “dawn” and how one of the underlying factors behind its existence and subsequent success is it’s commitment to an honest intention and skillful execution of creating a brand that embodies a very real ethos. It is brand with something to say. And it is a brand that presents Russian skateboarding in an authentic way.
This video is a candid conversation between Julian Klincewicz and Tolia Titaev about skateboarding in Russia, the birth of the brand with Gosha and more. It is overlayed with super 8 and super 16mm shot by Julian Klincewicz, Michael Cukr, and Blake Myers during the brand’s first trip to Los Angeles. This is a glimpse at the raw and in depth quality behind the scenes of the article from What Youth issue 18 and the documentary that paccbet just released called INRUSSIA.
