The new full-length skateboard film by Stay_K is coming sooner than ''coming soon'' posts usually mean. So, we thought it's a good idea to share the line-up of the film. Meaning the skaters who have full parts in it. Meaning the crew that was countless times out together mission mode on.
This is a big project with footage up to four years old. Was it the global crisis which caused delays? Was it that such big projects have always difficulties anyway? Nevertheless, there are expectations, since our last big video project "Sup' Rise" came out back in 2015. The good thing about all that time between is that you're going to see new additions to the team, as well as OGs who, after a hiatus in their relationship with cameras, are back stronger than ever and hungry for more.
Along with the crew, we always had homies backing us up, Cy-based and from abroad. Our community is a big and tight one and whoever's a skater knows about the bond. You'll get to see these community vibes and lifestyle / tour vibes in the video. So, expect a classic friends montage with lots of skateboarding. Expect lots of different skate spots from all over Cyprus, Athens, Andros island, Sofia, Barcelona and more. Special, this thing we do and we do it for life.

Bet most of you can't wait to watch Tasos' part. And you've got a good reason to do so. One word: Hammers. He's always this one-man-band, ball of energy and raw power. Sure many sessions were an experience with Tasos. Still very young but managed to leave his mark on almost every well known spot in Cy. Between long work hours and @cysk8clips posts, he managed to film a hell of a part.
Does this old dawg have shit to show, still? Yeah, he does. Don't be surprised. Still learning many new tricks, still finding virgin spots, still nailing NBDs at old spots that he first skated 15 years ago. We can safely say that his clips are a breath of fresh air. The only thing that makes us wonder is how he manages to have a full part in the film, since he has filmed most of it and edited it too.
NIKOLAS ''NIPA'' IOANNOU
About to hit the legend ranks, this powerhouse of a skateboarder won't dissapoint of course. The kind of energy, coming straight from the skate gods, Nipa's got plenty for the whole crew. Sometimes it was needed to make a session. Now, he works for Boardhouse Cy, but he's been a part of the crew for so long that we can understand if there's a good spot around by the look in his eyes. Smells like something is going down? Better be there to capture it.
CHRISTOS ''MANDILAS'' MIKELLIDES
Notice that you'd been seeing Mandilas at your local spot regularly? Once had been a Limassol local during uni. Once a Larnaca local. Now back at his hometown, Nicosia. Always in for tours. Seems like our dude can't stay in one place for long. This might be a reason he's part of the crew - skateboarding being an activity that gets more interesting the more you explore places and possibilities at different spots. That... and of course his quick feet, unique style, mad pop shoveit tailgrab and tailwhip, play a significant role.
It's no surprise that so many people from different backgrounds know Thalis. His explosive character shows, as well, on his skateboard. Can't say that he's the first to hit a session but he's definitely the last to go. Thalis has been here since before you were born and now is having a part in the Stay_K upcoming full length. He's sharing it with Mandilas. It's been a good while since his last part (10 years), so that makes SHREADY! more of a must-watch. In addition, he chose to film his whole part on a 10" board on mega-ramp trucks to show the kiddos how heavy weight champions do it.
With his ''skatefolio'' being richer than every skater on this desert island, last but not least as part of the line-up, comes Tony. The smooth operator. His part will pop out like he's popping on a board, which pops off like Tony's got the legs of a horse. His part is dressed up like it's the dude himself ready before stepping on the dance floor. Talking about style and finesse. His part's been worked up to have flow like his skateboarding has flow, like his midnight dance moves. If you don't know of them, now you know. We'll let you do the math when you watch SHREADY!.
As we metioned above, the main guy behind the video is Christos Yiannaki. Usual suspect. In fact, he's not new at all in full length video projects and filmmaking in general. Thankfully, almost as soon as he started skateboarding back in the day it made sense to him that a camera/filmer is essential as part of the crew. When mad love for a subject takes you back to the first feeling the first time you picked it up, projects like SHREADY! come about.
Hope you will end up being a part of this trip and to see you at our premieres.
Thanks for reading!
