2020 feels so long ago. For most skateboarders it´s a year which they relate to sitting/skating at home, not being able to travel, and therefore not being able to see friends from different countries. Rassvet‘s “I Missed You” quickly reminds us of that time but also, more importantly, it shows us what happened afterward. Ever since the borders were reopened the Rassvet team has been traveling, skating, and filming for this video project. We can say for certain: It came out great!
Carhartt WIP just came out with a brilliant full lenght video titled “INSIDE OUT”. We went to see it on the Berlin premiere and it was even better to watch this film by Romain Batard and Joaquim Bayle on the big screen. It’s a bit early to say but this might be one of the best videos of 2022. Congratulations to everyone involved!
Watch Felipe Bartolomé, Ebou Sanyang, Tolia Titaev, Sylvain Tognelli, Joseph Biais, Max Palmer, Rémy Taveira and many more give their best.
A new one by our friends from Nozbone Skateshop Paris edited by Ludovic Azémar and featuring Pierre Subra, Hugo Corbin, Luca Barattiero, Morgan Katomba, César Dubroca, Bertrand Soubrier, Léo Cruz, Sylvain Tognelli, Joseph Biais, Amélien Foures, Ben Jemmapes & Etienne Chatelain.
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.“
Gotta love the Vans Europe team for their ability to go for it in any and every situation or spot. We don’t want to spoil the trick but we were really stoked to see Dustin Dollin with a great ender trick in this!
On a side note Pfanner is like a very fine wine isn’t he.
A new Giddy is upon us and with all other episodes of this series, this has a concept, a very simple form follows function type of concept. You view stuff on your phone, you film stuff on your phone so this one is sized for viewing on your phone.
A new Video of so-called “Leftovers” from the Natural Born Cooler Video has surfaced. We can’t really agree with that description of the footage, because we really enjoyed the clip, which was filmed and edited by Paul Labadie.
We have been told about this project a few months ago and seeing that it finally came together is amazing. Joseph Biais has been on top of the European scene for so long but he always kept it his secret. Here’s another Romain Batard concept film instant classic.
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!
