Rob Mentov "Travel Mixtape" / PREMIERE

Rob Mentov - you might remember his name from the Street Feet edit we used to share on LIVE, a handful of moons ago. Well, Rob was just granted a guest graphic as part of the new Love Skateboards line, an occasion for which he took some time aside to put together a skate edit for us, filmed in various exotic locations, and he even went as far as subjecting himself to our ritual of the 5W's... Again!


Yes, weekend is among us and, with it, time to go push around the proverbial city –even if it might be more of a fantasy in your very own village– with all your friends… And here is a serious dose of inspiration to do so, and do it right, with a sure push or flip trick in between moving and potentially hostile yellow cabs. With the poster by for such activity, AKA Keith Hufnagel, and a retrospective of all his parts for Real Skateboards, and therefore a full career of never being intimidated by any sort of street furniture, no matter how local or exotic, with always the option of just flying over it. But let's not limit our appreciation of Huf to his big ollie, oh no! Enjoy the history class about a guy that is way more than a shoe brand…

Meeting… Richard Hart!

Richard Hart - the elusive. OG contributing photographer to the likes of Slap Magazine of SuGaR, now the mastermind behind Push Periodical (onto its ninth issue as of recently) and relocated in Europe, Rich always cultivated a taste for manners, as well as a sharp eye. LIVE Skateboard Media caught up with him for some skate- and life-related banter.

Contemporary art

Where the Nozbone team and colleagues go to Charleroi's BPS22 museum in order to enjoy the last hours of the "Paving Space" exhibition of Raphaël Zarka's  work…

Dat mixtape ya need!

All right, history class to kick off the year the right way! And, sure, the elders will get teary eyed reminiscing their glory days, but all young bucks among you will get their kicks too: after all, stylish skateboarding on rough spots can only improve with the years, doesn't it?

"Vladimir" / premiere

In seven years of existence, Nikola Racan's Vladimir Film Festival has slowly but surely grown to become a remarkable institution as part of the European - not to say worldwide - skate scene, gathering hundreds of skateboarders from the whole world over in the small croatian village of Fažana every year. On location every year since (nearly) the beginning, Aymeric Nocus picked 2017 as the year to finally bring his video camera with him, as an effort to capture and share as much of that effervescence as possible, with precious VX-1000 assistance from George Toland and Rémi Luciani who documented the energy of the skate sessions. The final product is now premiereing on LIVE Skateboard Media, after physical premieres at the Mimpi Film Festival in Rio De Janeiro and the Roundabout Fest in Berlin... Worldwide connexions!

Over there…

If the idea that a video project (whatever its subject might be) could even reach "must see" levels nowadays, the latest James Craven production, in conjunction with Grey Skate Mag, might be the only one to get there, in a mighty long time… Following the already striking Land, to transcend it and reach masterpiece level. There, we said it. And if the idea of showcasing the search for somewhere anew to put his wheels on is not new, it is treated here in a way that stay clear from the pseudo-epicness that mentally exhausts us everyday. But enough pontificating, do yourself good and enjoy this rare moment…

"Dunja" / Rios Crew x Belgrade Zoo / PREMIERE

It's not just that the Budapest-based Rios Crew no longer needs an introduction, but also that they may not want any. They made another video featuring them alongside the Belgrade Zoo gang in Montenegro then zoning around Croatia with some old acquaintance, called "Dunja" (see below!), regardless of the mere existence of such considerations.

Meeting... Michael Burnett!

With the Paris House Of Vans pop-up event taking place this week-end, and notably featuring a retrospective exhibition of Michael Burnett's 20-years-long contribution to the main photography of Thrasher Magazine, the opportunity to catch up with this crucial protagonist of the dominant skateboarding culture was too good to pass on.

The House of Vans Paris roomies / 5 W's!

Anticipating this weekend's house of vans event in paris (for which you can book YOUR free ticket here already), let's take a minute to break the usual format of our traditional "5 w's" as to better ask five OF THE FRENCH vans riders one same - but oh-so-crucial - question…

Yoan Taillandier / 5 W's!

As to better accompany his new Bordeaux montage, here's another dimension of Yoan's perspective on all things MINUIT, through the prism of our classic treatment-by-the-5 W's!
