It wasn’t that long ago that I had a really good connection to the Polish skateboard scene thanks to Mateusz Paszkiewicz, the man behind the well-good online mag System Skateboarding (click here for the last issue!). He put in an amazing amount of time and effort into gathering the news, setting up interviews, traveling to contests – basically what you have to do to create a publication that will attract people to come back for more. Yeah, I can understand him perfectly.
Do to difficulties which I won’t go into, the mag sadly died out earlier in 2009 but knowing Mateusz, this couldn’t be the end. He’s working hard on a new mag titled “Free Mind” which should be going online in December 2009 – hell, that’s like now! -and he’s already got a blog going as well. It’s in Polish but luckily there are pictures and videos as well 🙂 Good luck to you Mateusz and I’ll be sure to let you all know when the first issue goes live.
