All right, so Monday is off, and this should put the fire in you: the homies, buddies, friends and bros section from our Parisii remix… Three years of skating around Paris amounts to a rather large group of people joining the sesh. Hell, you can even spot a couple world renown dudes in there, oh and that guy Rémy Taveira. And République getting built! All under the musical supervision of another Parisii head, Vincent Perrin!
Let's just be honest, here: the majority of books dedicated to skateboarding are rarely more than marketing tools, dedicated to make sure you consume how you are supposed to… Actually independent projects are rare, simply because putting a book together is one hell of a mission! That did not stop young Jonathan Rentschler, that some of you might know from his frequent visits to Europe. And he documented with a photo camera the past three years of LOVE park, to the very last sessions in the middle of its ruins, to turn it all into a book, a real one. One book you can –and should– already pre-order, here… Until it actually drops, here a little visual and animated teaser Jon filmed on Super 8…
One could foresee that the simple idea of "cruising" would be slightly different for Luan Oliveira than for us mere mortals, but goddamit! But, even more than his absolute control of his board, what really makes a difference is the speed that wraps it all together. Power, period.
They here, they back, with Luka Pinto at the forefront! And, nope their island has not transformed in a marble paradise of sort, which does not stop them from practicing one of the most exciting skateboarding in Europe! The Subterranean heads deserve the moniker, and all your attention!
This should be the only thing you really have to watch this week! There, we said it. Why? Well, because that Victor dude is on another level of understanding of his board than most, and he can therfore make you shiver, sweat and burst out laughing with one lipslide… Oh, and Felipe Oliveira shakes the ledge game hard with one body motion.
Fuck it, it is Easter, so this one is on us! Here is the Magenta part of the Parisii remix. Baby Jesus was dead and came back, or not really, but the only thing we know for sure is friends are forever!
Noah, the name is more than familiar, from those Pop Clips: always the unexpected line, and feet both quick and agile! Being lucky enough to have spent quality curb side time with this fine young man, we can also certify he is a good egg… So, why not put together his best footage, and hand it to a common friend, Victor Demonte to have fun with it? The final result will be a motivation high for all, even in the most charmingly (?) heavy in interlocking slabs Holland is infamous for. And stay tuned for more!
A big thanks to Sami el Hassani, Marc Bolhuis, Jan Maarten Sneep and Ralf Goossens for contributing their footie!
