Titus Skates‘ latest full length video ‘Ups and Downs’ has been in the offing for two years now, growing into a 25 minute epic of Germanic handrail destruction which will have the more thrill seeking amongst you chomping at the bit to go lemming toss yourself down shiny metal street furniture. With a heavy squad consisting of Jost Arens, Patrick Rogalski, Jeremy Reinhard, Vladik Scholz, Yannick Schall and Markus Blessing, street spots across the continent, both familiar and less so, get annihilated left, right and centre.
The German shop celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and, having been in the game so long, has had a chance to add some of the gnarliest skaters in the country to its team; so, while you may have some familiarity with the brand from their regular podium placements during the Vans Shop Riot series, this is a more solid visual outing with which to cement their place in your brain as bringers of the stoke. What with this being their first full length since 2013’s ‘Tightass’, they couldn’t really muck about with this one – thankfully, they haven’t!

“Five years after our last full-length video “Tightass”, Titus presents “Ups & Downs”. The “Ups & Downs” project officially began with a trip to Lisbon in 2016. Ever since, Team Titus skaters Jost Arens, Patrick Rogalski, Jeremy Reinhard, Vladik Scholz, Yannick Schall and Markus Blessing have pushed their skating to the next level. Dennis Ludwig, Max Pack and Anton Beliaev captured every banger they could get while behind the camera and Severin Strauss edited it all together. Check out 25 minutes of the finest Team Titus skateboarding.”
