The one and only Terrasse

The Cinquième Terrasse is one of the busiest and most active crews in Paris, even if we had not heard enough news lately. That's a smashing comeback with "TONY G" seven minutes of great skateboarding that goes way too fast for my taste. This video shows well that we are coming to a time when making the unique is worth as much, if not more, than doing the perfect. To skate a city in its own way is like showing the peculiarities that we perceive there and to highlight what we like in it. Paris under the gaze of the Cinquième Terrasse is really unique. They give off a crazy energy that is really personal to them. And when it comes to style, if Christian Hosoi validates it, you can imagine that it's not for nothing.

Gimme five!

"Look, ma', no hand!" Oh wait, yes hand, yes hands actually, and yes feet too… All in good spirits too, as always, when we speak about  Romain Batard!

Troubled youth?

Nah, the Cinquième Terrasse kids are a good bunch, and their recent visit in Paris only proved it more… Good kids, we tell ya!

Jof's tip: "Coolpix"!

"Check the new edit from Cinquième Terrasse, if you haven't spotted it, it's great! Especially that lil' Nico kid, he knows when and where to throw down!" When Joffrey Morel texts you a tip, you follow it, so do yourself a favor, do just like us, and enjoy a nice edit mixing skaters from France and Switzerland that make it look nice, wether you've heard of them or not (yet)!

City perspective

"Triptych", the new book from the De Paris Yearbook camp is now available in all places with a bit of good taste, and to celebrate it –as well as the 20th anniversary of the first Paris Metrospective in 411 video magazine– they offer here a nice selection of more underground skaters than the ones you attach the French capitol to, which does not mean they lack in skills, nor contribute vastly to the local scene…
