Teiqova (pronounced take over) is a full length skateboarding film produced by Teiqo. Centered in Ballina Northern Rivers NSW is showcases the local talent 'doing with wat the got' and throwing down the hammer.
The @teiqo_skate project started as a couple of long time friends Lay (@sleahya) and Tooza (@turiramsay) began to film their skate sessions. The goal was to inspire new generations and pass on the street skate culture he had enjoyed. Their perspective was clear that 'making do with what you got and exploring your local area for potential skate spots was paramount. The aim to inspire was not to be flash, glittery huge tricks down famous spots, but homegrown talent regardless of age and abilities giving it all they have while having fun.
Project @teiqo_skate has evolved over the years into a loved local brand offering real equity in products and community. Several board drops, shirts, stickers and a zine later Teiqo is about to launch their first full length film Teiqova (pronounced take over).
