The Strongest of the Strange
'The Strongest of the Strange' was Pontus' first video that he made and it took the skate world by storm. It showcased his hometown of Malmo and its D.I.Y scene (with all of his friends) that was really setting the pace of D.I.Y in Europe. The video really insopired and empowered a lot of people to get of their backsides and make something for themselves. From the bleak settings of Mongolia to a Scott Bourne section, 'The Strongest of the Strange' holds such a variety of skating and skaters - all with Pontus' creative stamp on the production - that it's surely a modern classic. His own part is very evocative and moving, dealing with the loss of his father and his life, this part makes you think as much as it makes you want to skate.
This part from 'Progression VM, Volume 1' is a real product of the late 90's. With bucket hats and hip-hop, Pontus does some serious shredding in southern California. Switch boardslides, bigspin fs noseslides and enviable nollie flips this part will get you stoked.
This is Pontus' first part for Mad Circle, opening their second video '5ive Flavors' as the first part. I really like his intro, which sees Pontus zipping around San Francisco in a cloth flat-cap and blazer, looking like something from a 1950's market stall, all filmed in black and white. His section is filmed in Sweden and the States and he looks comfortable on all terrain, with his blend of power and style the song's lyrics reflect his skating.
In Search of the Miraculous
This last section - also the last one before he started Polar, which is where you'll see most of his newer footage - in 'In Search of the Miraculous' really got people talking about his work. This upload shows the TBS section, with clips from pals and the man himself, before his actual part. A more colourful and upbeat video than 'Strongest of the Strange' Pontus shows his wallride antics, rugged bank spots, a dope varial flip and a homage to Bobby Puleo as his penultimate ender. The part and the video are a masterpiece so watch this before skating.
Emerica Pro Model Section
Although he doesn't ride for Emerica anymore (shown in this also really good clip) this little video, shot by Jean Feil, follows Pontus around his hometown of Malmo and skating three of the cities D.I.Y spots while talking about what skating means to him and a little about the shoe he designed. Skating: Lund, Steppe Side and TBS like an absolute don, I really like the half-cab noseslide pop-over on the pipe.
