Street

Blazing

The Blaze supply’s French-Brazilians literally blazing the streets of São Paulo is something. And there is no need to say they go real hard, especially when it comes to slides and grinds, as confirmed by the last tricks of the video.

Always balanced

New Balance finally gives Tom Knox his own colorway on the NM 440. The main interested therefore takes the opportunity to remind us how comfortable and complete he is on a skateboard, through a short but really effective video.

Günes For The City

FTC Barcelona is treating us with some new fresh Günes Özdogan by the means of this clip filmed by Marcos Lozano and edited by Chris Mulhern. Günes is portrayed remaining true to himself: lively, technical, precise - all the while marking every Barcelona ledge, forever.

Soy Panday / B&B / PREMIERE

Soy Panday, the one and only; now, not content enough with just providing you with a new part of his, the man himself decided to chime in and answer a few of our, and hopefully your, questions. The tortured Magenta Skateboards graphic artist who turns into Roy if (preferably comfortably) fed tofu past midnight, proud owner of several Parisian fountains and with equally good eye for urban spots, taste for lines (of whichever form) and form on backside flips is now live on LIVE, cruising through twenty years of street footage on video as well as through your mind with his words.

Dans le Futur

Oscar Candon always more powerful, always more impressive. The spots are clearly really complex to skate, but he does it very well and with a lot of speed. A true force of nature in his new part for Futur filmed and edited by Olivier Fanchon.

At night in the country of the rising sun

TIGHTBOOTH and musician KILLER-BONG just delivered a little gem. A video featuring the Japanese skateboarding in all its glory through Koichiro Uehara and his crew. The spots are exploited to the fullest of their potential, every ingredient is present - from creativity to technique, all infused of the very subtle scent of craziness that usually makes this scene so particular.

Takahiro Morita "Freehand" / 5 W's!

Unless you are new to this website or to independent skateboarding altogether, Takahiro Morita no longer should need any introduction by now. The genius behind the underground video hit "Overground Broadcasting" that helped spread awareness about the Japanese skate scene exactly a decade ago (!), the Far East Skate Network enterprise and the clothing brand LIBE has yet again produced something conceptual. A passionate skateboarder but also a plastic artist, "Freehand" is the name of his new performance exhibition at the Ichihara Lakeside Museum, for which he built a skate course and, well... Peep the video recap to try and get it! LIVE Skateboard Media also got to briefly exchange with Morita regarding the happening. His words below.

MIMPI FILM FESTIVAL / "Ruído" / PREMIERE

Despite the ongoing exponential development of instantaneous Internet connections, social network platforms and low-cost airlines - technologies bound to help the average skateboarder meet some others as to contemplate new perspectives, new landscapes, new souls - certain particular horizons still seem to struggle more than others in terms of retranscription. Oftentimes the idea erupts, but gets stranded on the way, exhausted from the length of the journey, eventually hitting the language barrier face first. Not everybody has to be an English speaker, a media nerd or even aiming at reaching out to others, after all; nevertheless, those ruptures in communication will get in the way of those trying to comprehend as much of the world as possible, like crackling on the line. Today on LIVE Skateboard Media, it is Pedro Damasio you are getting introduced to, along with his peers' work on the Rio De Janeiro, Brazil-based skate film and photo festival: Mimpi. We went there - twice - and we loved it: beyond all appearances and behind the banners, Pedro and his friends like to play around with crazy concepts. Last year's edition's was the one of noise, or "Ruído", and the resulting clip, featured above, is pretty experimental; a daring stand from an event this popular, only proving the sincerity in Pedro's progressive will, and the love in his approach. Plus there's a lot of skateboarding to boot, as a tribute to the practice we all owe everything to!

Quick feet

Even if we find him in only a few videos, Toby Bennett’s style is clearly recognizable. Today this young man comes back with a part in “Puerile”, a long length video filmed in Washington DC, and between his last part and this one we can say that he progressed a lot. He is currently in flow for the new brand Dead On Arrival, and that makes sense when we see the skill and speed with which he links tricks of a remarkable cleanliness.

Teixeira alert!

Or where, in just one line, Rodrigo reminds all who lays down the law in those mean streets. We'll let you find out which one…

Swedish Spring

Poetic collective and Levi’s skateboarding have teamed up to make “On Land”. Fully filmed in the streets of Stockholm, this video represents the arrival of the few rays of sun which erase the long Swedish winter opening up somehow the “skateboarding season”. And as always, to our greatest delight, these young Swedish have this way so creative and atypical to approach spots with combinations of tricks that we might not even have thought of. 

Birthday Pool party

After treating us well with La Armonía, Eric Nguyen comes back, with the same team in front of his fisheye, to celebrate the nine springs of the Huston’s Select skateshop by offering us a video that smells like summer, holidays and pool parties.
