Trip

Like butter!

Kiwis meet roastbeefs would be the least politically (and technically, even) correct possible, but oh-so-(anti-)gastronomic alternative title for this new amazing web clip from our Australian friends over at Buttergoods, who recently had a lot on their plate as they went to the UK and all they came back with was this not-lousy-whatsoever "Spoons": an impeccable edit of raw street skating bound to deliver enough weight to quench even the worst brick craving. Even the locals get to shine, the VX work is masterful and the editing flows super well, interestingly reminiscinent of another brand from Australia, the renowned Pass-Port. I guess you guys just might have good taste in general down under!

Parisian life!

The City of Lights as seen through the prism of Calvin Millar's refined VX-1000 and Super 8 touch - look no further, "La Vie En Paris" is what you get; an entirely logical [sic] as this moving postcard results from the leisurely holiday trip of a tight-knit crew of visitors from Texas. The edit makes for a poetic intepretation of the streets of the French capital, and Kyle Slinky will make your head spin just as much as the sightseeing!

The Swiss dream

Every time they come back it is to offer us something we never saw. And here is another dose of never seen, but in Switzerland! Make tricks of which they are the only ones to have the secret on spots that they are the only ones able to skate this way, the whole accompanied by some good slams. here is the cocktail recipe for a good Rave video. We will also notice one named Léo Cholet who gives us a very serious skateboarding lesson.

UNEMPLOYED / "Avance l'Arrière" / PREMIERE

The jobless (really?) accomplices of d'Unemployed Skate Co., more usually specialized in the production of colorful grip tape, recently went off on a tangent in the general direction of Algeria, a destination just as exotic as their art direction which in turn led them to meet new souls (most often intrigued by this breath of fresh air from the North, on wheels), and touch practically unskated spots. Despite being under supervision the whole time, they still managed to sneak two broken VX's into the country then leave it with full tapes! Their new edit is called "Avance L'arrière", a title Brian Bunting of Unemployed was happy to explain below, besides many more things because no, he didn't escape the 5W's treatment!

Turkish vibes

After Normandy, Istanbul for the magenta team, a great opportunity to admire the skills of Günes Özdogan, and the crazy skateboarding of the unstoppable Glenn Fox. It's amazing how this city is full of beautiful spots in both practice and aesthetics. So here is MAGENTURK (nice pun!) Just for you, six good minutes of beautiful images of their skate we know and love.

Poets in Paris

At Poetic Collective, we are very productive lately and as usual, it's full of creativity. Today we find them for the second artwork of their triptych, and this time it is on our beautiful Parisian spots that they gave free rein to their imagination. Obviously, with this style and technique that we can not find anywhere else. Paris has always been a great source of inspiration for poets. 

Switch Big Spin / Lisa Jacob and Jean-Marc Soulié

Jean-Marc and Lisa are very involved in concrete skatepark building throughout the world. They respond to many a local non-profit organization that's looking for volunteers to help materialize such projects, in countries where not much exists for skateboarding thus far, and the governing powers of which usually aren't too ready to embrace its practice. Another way of living skateboarding and experiencing Irak, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bolivia, Palestine or India. Switch Big Spin is a new twist on the French Big Spin podcast, still talking skateboardings and its activists, from a different, fresh perspective.

FUTUR-ISTIC

Juan Saavedra, Santiago Sasson, Karl Salah, Oscar Candon for the skating, and Yohan Taillandier behind the fisheye, obviously the result is impressive. This is the fourth opus of the Future Inc’s Timeline series, and the least we can say is that the technique is there. There is nothing that exceeds, each trick is clear and precise, a treat for the pupils.

Hellgeria

The web release of Hellgeria, a tour edit in Algeria featuring the Unemployed roster, is just around the corner now. As a sign of warning, the guys behind the aforementioned griptape brand (sticking to the French scene remarkably well) are just now sharing this trailer with us; a summary of the epileptic chaos their journey was, which will for sure make a few of you wonder what exactly is to come, and leave you inspired to see more - not just talking skating!

JJ Alert!

A week-long vacation in Palm Springs for the Dickies skate team, a bit more of Ronnie Sandoval, Vincent Alvarez, even Peter Hewitt, and of course Jake Johnson (and many others). On the program, a little bit of DIY, street when the desire take them, and especially a lot of bowl. This is a good opportunity to see these few heads we like leaving for a little their favorite area, to the point of skating a relatively unlikely pool.

Shmara

Russian skaters in Shanghai, China - wait, what? James Davidson, aka. DJ, documented just that over a period of six months; filming sessions intertwined with his schedule of a teacher in Shanghai at the time. Seeing Russian skaters constantly swarming around the place, DJ picked up his camera and made it a point to document the schtick of daily stylish destruction those skate rats were on. "They skate hard and often get swept under the rug when it comes to exposure", DJ says. "Many of the Russian skaters often come to China solely to skate, film, travel. These guys are the definition of skate rats!". Well the proof is in the pudding, or in the Shmara apparently, according to these guys. Get ready for some intense street skating and editing!

Atlantic Pacific

Our gang of drifters, once again, travels the less beaten paths, this time in Hawaii, and it suits them –and us– perfectly! One will note Sylvain Tognelli's cab nosebluntslide pop out…
