Sammy is a great skater, skating for good companies and now he has been upped to the big league and we can only say CHAPEAU!

Seattle got pleasantly killed by the duo of Mark Appleyard and Sammy Montano in this new Globe clip. Steller editing, soundtrack and skating, it’s like a getting the full ice cream with a cherry on top.

Connected to our “TIME ISSUE” we did not only create a print feature with Fries Tailleu, we also went out and documented our day with him on video. In between the rainy moments, we actually managed to combine a lot of fun activities with some great conversations.

Watch this video to see the action and pick up a magazine to read about the things we talked about.

We would like to thank Globe for the support.

Next to Fries Taillieu, Frenchman Charles Collet was chosen to get his own colorway of the Globe Eagle SG.

Charles is known for being one of the heaviest hitters on the European skate scene. He’s spent years rotating between Lyon, Barcelona & Berlin but when he’s not on tour he now calls Paris home. You’ll often find him in his studio working on some wooden furniture these days, looking to become an Ébéniste at some point down the line…

We met Fries Taillieu a couple of weeks ago in his new hometown Amsterdam. Fries has got everything it needs to be a professional skater. For some reason we always had the feeling that Arto Sarri took him under his wings; well, those wings are long gone and Fries is already moving on.

A While ago he posted this:

A few months ago I got a phone call from the @globebrand TM @anewblack telling me I would get a colorway on the Eagle shoe. I was working in a cafe at the time and needless to say I handed out drinks with the biggest smile on my face for the rest of the night. this is the result. thank you @globebrand @anewblack @joshbarow for your endless support and belief in me, you made my dream come true ❤️. more info concerning the tour coming tomorrow. a big thank you as well to my girlfriend, friends and family as they stood beside me through skateboarding.

Here is the result:

More of Fries in our upcoming issue! Love you, Fries.

This summer the GLOBE skate team blazed through five European countries and multiple cities for their EU Trippin Tour. Seems like Mark Appleyard, David Gonzalez, Rodney Mullen, Louie Barletta, Ryan Decenzo, Chris Haslam, Paul Hart, Anton Myhrvold, Fries Taillieu, Charles Collet, and Phillip Schuster had a good time – check out their video recap below:

Last week I had the chance to meet Chris Haslam who is currently on a Globe tour through Europe. I sat down with Chris after the session had ended and asked him to name his top ten tricks that he invented. He replied by saying that one can never be sure that a trick hasn’t been done before, so instead he gave me ten tricks he didn’t see anybody do before he did them.

1.
First one that comes to mind is the one foot Frontboard shove-it out. I did this trick in my Almost Round 3 part. I saw Chris Cole do the one foot Frontboard on a flatbar and I thought it looked cool, so I went to the skatepark and learned the trick on the flatbar first. So then I wanted to bring the trick to a bigger obstacle, I went to a handrail and I just added the shove-it to the trick.

2/3/4
The next couple of tricks that come to my mind are the Frontboard hardflip out, Frontboard 360 Flip out and Frontboard Nollie BS Flip out, the first two where in my Almost Round 3 part and the last one was in my Globe United by Faith part, all filmed on the same rail.

5.
Crooked to Backlip Flip out, I made that trick for my DECA part. I don’t know if kids will recognize it’s me but it is.

6.
Number six would be the SW Heelflip wheelie facing backwards. I did the trick and tried to shoot a sequence of this. I was trying for hours but I couldn’t make the trick again. Fun fact: Danny Gonzales actually told me not to do this trick because he was working on the same thing…

7.
Bigspinflip Frontboard on a handrail – this was just before Bastien Salabanzi came up and started doing this trick on the sickest shit. I can’t be sure I was the first though because I was in Canada and the internet hadn’t morphed into what it is now. Shot for a Tensor ad that could not be recovered from the internets archives.

8.
I guess I have to explain a little bit about where the idea came from, I still watch a lot of old videos. They get me hyped to try new stuff – one of my favorite skaters is Julio De La Cruz and in this old New Deal video he basically displays all of his crazy flat ground combos. So for my Transworld Pro Spotlight I took his ideas of caspers and created my own version, the Varialflip back foot casper which was my ender for this particular part.

9.
I guess the next one would be the BS Boardslide FS Flip out I did on the L.A. High rail. I guess a lot of my NBD’s have to do with flipping out of a Boardslide related trick (laughs).

10.
I obviously saw the darkslide before on other obstacles like ledges and rails, and I even saw the stall on a quarterpipe before, but I had seen never anybody do a darkslide on tranny so I was pretty stoked that I did one for my Almost 5 incher part:

#GLOBEEUTRIPPIN‬

Neue Footage von Mark Appleyard – so kann der Tag ja nur gut losgehen. Grund für diesen einminütigen Clip ist der Release vom “Mahalo Mid” – dem Pro Model von Mark auf Globe Shoes. Der Schuh ist eine Weiterentwicklung der Low Top Version und verbindet Style und Funktion: Die Suede und Canvasvarianten sind clean und ohne viel Schnickschnack, das Globe PU “Shockbed” absorbiert die Einschläge. Hawaii tested, Mark Appleyard approved. Jetzt erstmal auf die Minute Footage freuen und danach den Schuh genauer unter die Lupe nehmen:
