Patrick Zentgraf’s “Que Bueno” Showcases German Skateboarding with a Twist of Cuban Groove

Watch the German-bred foot wizard get his shuffle on to the tune of one of Cuba’s most prolific musicians.

German skateboarder Patrick Zentgraf has been on the international and American scene for a little over two years now, but if you haven’t heard the name yet, consider this your late pass.

“Que Bueno” is four minutes of Cuban groove-laden technical and savvy four-wheeled magic from the German-born shredder. Produced by Torsten Frank, the edit juxtaposes Patrick’s flavorful style with the Buena Vista Social Club’s “El Cuarto de Tula”, a soul-soothing Caribbean tune that combines chant, guitar and percussion in the same way that Zentgraf pushes through trick selection, difficulty and consistency.

There’s an incredible flow and syncopation to the world-recognized art form that is Cuban music and it’s obvious that “Que Bueno” hints at Patrick’s own globe-trotting talent and flair. He’s also joined by the homie Lem Villemin, another international skate wizard in his own right.

If you’re going to be out skating this weekend, be sure to check out “Que Bueno” for some Afro-Latin-inspired inspiration before hitting the streets.
