A video about an 8 days journey across the south of France featuring Alex Richard, Fred Plocque-Santos, Paul Austin & Edouard Depaz. Filmed & edited by PJ Chapuis. Sounds good to us!

Absolutely incredible Alexis Sablone section in this one.

Edouard Depaz is a good friend of ours and he just dropped a part for his board sponsor RAVE & British Vague Magazine. There is only good things to say about Edouard and about this video so do yourself a favor and press play.

After a long time of rumors and Instagram screenshots, the cat is now out of the bag! Bobby DeKeyzer is now officially a professional Skater for QUASI skateboards. Congrats!

Smooth, powerful and with style that is what Joey brings to the table.

While watching this video we were thinking three things is this style still current? Does it matter if it works? and lastly, Jahmal Williams still has it!

The first two you can debate amongst yourself the latter is undebatable, enjoy!

As trends progress, it seems that every brand thought to itself “Get the velcro strap!”, and they took that strap and put it on their one-star shoe. After that was done they wanted to show the world and thus, the second one-star world tour was a fact.

Featuring:

Juan Virues, Felipe Bartolome, Ryan Townley, Dane Barker, Shane Farber, Kaue Cossa, Remy Taveira, Max Taylor, Paul Grund and Bobby De Keyzer.

It seems like that nowadays the Thrasher site has become the number one choice when it comes to a media outlet even for the bigger brands. The new Converse CONS Purple video is not released on their own YT channel but via the “Skateboard Bible”.

Watch Jake Johnson, Louie Lopez, K-rod, Bobby DeKeyzer & 100 other guys go absolutely a 100% in.

It is no secret that we really enjoy James Cruickshank’s lens work, so to see these new Converse x Grey Mag edits drop is a joyous occasion for all that love Sheffield’s finest. Obviously, the fact that he is working with skaters like Bobby De Keyzer, Jerome Campbell, Harry Lintell and Remy Tav doesn’t hurt either.

Harry Lintell seems to be having a lot of fun in SF, it almost seems that he needed no time adjusting at all. To be honest we don’t know exactly where in Brittain he grew up but it seems like he was born to go down those hills. Check it out for yourself and enjoy.

A little sun in Marseille mixed in with some of the Converse Cons squads skating. Enjoy some Sean Pablo channeling Aaron Suski in this one.

National Geographic, skate photographer Johnathan Mehring ventures out into Canada and on the way tells us a lot about the way he shoots skateboarding.
Which might seem uninteresting to a lot of you at first but when you insert Zered Bassett, Jake Johnson, Brian Delatorre & Eli Reed things start to change.

After Bobby Worrest’s “Turf Killer” part now it is Mike Arnold’s time to present himself skating his hometown spot called “Lloyds”.

We respect hometown spots and we respect the creativity it takes to make something worth while there. Mike Arnolds put in the work and came out with something special.

With all the CPH coverage dropping we present to you one last recap to close it off and that is the PLACEMAGPAULE photo recap.

Contrary to last year almost the whole PLACE staff traveled to arguably the best city in the world. But even though we were all in the same city, festival rules applied, which meant that within moments we lost each other and started doing our own thing. We all ended up at different events and safe for a few moments only saw each other at the plethora of parties that the CPH Open is host to.

It seemed everybody had a great time at every single event but our highlight was definitely the Levi’s event which looked rained out at first but ended up saving our lives by offering us a boat ride, good food, cold drinks and a very hot but healthy sauna experience!

We wish we could say “See you next year!” but the organizers felt that it was time for a break. So we will end it by saying, enjoy Paule’s photo recap and see you at the next Copenhagen Open

We were a little hesitant at first but this sauna van boosted morale to unprecedented levels, from now on we would like to see this van at every contest.

We met Mark while he was out living in Berlin we skated together and we knew he was good but he still really managed to surprise us in this video.

We also love the animations and want to give a shout out to Bannsen who probably spent quite a few hours working on them.
