Free Booze For Rollers is an independent scene video coming out of the south of Holland. Rens Verbruggen hit us up with four choice parts from the video, if like us you’d not heard of the skaters featured, hit play and get familiar with a lesser seen European scene.
Bart van Dijk was kind enough to profile each of the guys for us, so you get a little idea about the minds behind the skateboarding.
Snaaier can do many more tricks than the ones showcased in FBFR. Finishing an education without spending less time on his skateboard, for instance, and making hotel employees believe he’s their guest to get free breakfasts.
Paul Laarhoven is a chemist by profession, and it shows when he’s skateboarding. He makes intricate concoctions with all kinds of heelflips, and afterwards brushes his hair from his face in a very precise manner!
Ake van Arkel
Ake van Arkel filmed three different parts for FBFR. He still found time to drink too much, in hindsight he says he won’t do it again. Not in a million beers.
