Carhartt WIP is often one of the anchor points where art and skateboarding join together to form a synthesis. Both live together, working in unison.
We took a little excerpt from Carhartt themselves for those that want to delve deeper into what that all means:
“Carhartt WIP Skateboarding has collaborated with renowned international art institution Galleria Continua. The project is centered around a new, experimental skate space at the gallery’s location in Boissy-le-Châtel, an hour east of the French capital. The snake run was created by MBL architects and Bureau D. Apheceix, using a series of free-form, artisanal techniques that allows the structure to blend in with its surrounding landscape.“
The Terrasse is back and in style, let yourself be surprised by the spots and the tricks.
After the success of Tony G, we now get another video from quite possibly the most exciting crew in Paris.

Press play and enjoy some tomfoolery by the boys and girls in Rennes, France.
At first when I started the Giddy series I wanted every one of them to have a different theme but in the end, I think they all end up looking almost similar to one another, same style of music same vibe.
Romain Batard is back with one of the most interesting video series in skateboarding. And ever since he delivered that quote in our interview with him he has been steadily delivering Giddy’s with a stronger sense of concept and individuality.
Steve Malet kills it in number 8! He is one of Paris’ most exciting skaters out there right now even though he is not even originally from France. But Steve is only one reason and this Giddy truly delivers from the skating, the editing, the song choice and the special effects. It is a good rounded out piece of work!
It seems only too fitting that only hours after Hugo Maillard left Berlin one of his long time friends puts out a new video. Not only is Mr. Batard responsible for some of Hugo’s best footage, he is also responsible for producing some of the more exciting skate videos in recent history.
It seems that with or without “big names” he makes it happen.
Paving Space is a contemorary art project by Raphaël Zarka that takes advantage of the nature of skateboarding to function very well with geometrical figures. Inspired by mathematician Arthur Moritz Schoenflies’ three dimensional models, Raphaël Zarka built sculptures that consist of different geometrical components that enable to create innumerous compositions. However these sculptures can already be seen as art by themselves, Raphaël Zarka adds the motions of skateboarding to his geometrical structures, which, in turn, opens up a complete new field of compositions because every skateboarder skates a certain obstacle in an own way.
