The Atlas skateshop dudes seems to be on the active side, and like to hit the road! This time they ventured a bit further and reached London, where they regrouped with Mark Suciu and Julian Klein fresh off their Paris and Parisii-esque stay… A nice tout of London spots, enjoy!
We knew Sarmiento would not deceive: he is on the untouchable side, and somehow untouched by the years… And no worries about the spanish technician , but the –really good– surprise comes from Mister Pettersson, that pretty much steals the show here. His name has been cited for years as one of the most interesting Barcelona locals, and the part finally does him justice. Hell, he even finds a new angle at Parallel!
This weekend being saturated with heavy launches, let's look for something a bit out the box! So, when you'll be done re-watching Appleyard's part and the new Parisii edit (Ha!), you should check this out. Because when you say "underground" skateboarding, those guys take the idea quite literrally, and don't take it lightly, either!
Our Paris visit continues, this time hitting the XIth arrondissement, an area you might recognize some staple Parisian spots from, but that keeps sprouting new ones. This montage –the longuest, so far– also features many new faces and special guests: enjoy! Parisii is a Live exclusive – kindly supported by Nike– and a work in progress, so if you want to contribute a trick or a spot, feel free to join in! Meanwhile, stay tuned, with the map. And you can still read an interview of the two directors in the BONUS section!
Let's be frank, we had never heard of Sebastiaan Vijverberg before, but this should put him on the map! Just for the bump to bar ollie in Créteil, which many have eyed before looking away shyly, he earned our respect, but this part counts many more great skating, just like the 2' 08 wallie 180 in a line. Good stuff!
As promised yesterday, here is, premiering on Live, a new Chris Mulhern production for Caste Quality, mixing archival footage from Ryan Gee and Andrew Foote, and the newest guard from modern days in Philly.
For those too young to know, Thomas Campbell, recognized painter and filmmaker, made his first moves behind a movie camera by putting out A Love Supreme for the notorious NYC skateshop, his very own hymn to the now long gone New York nineties. Never where you expect him, he has since made himself quite the name for his full-length surf movies, all shot on film… But, it seems that he’s back documenting skateboarding, an activity he never gave up practicing.
So, today, May the 16th of 2013, Robert Puleo gives us an unexpected part, one he seems to have put online himself, nontetheless! We don't have no scoop on this, but maybe we should start looking into it, what do you say?
