333

Nyon man

LIVE has already been introducing you to Switzerland-based Arthur Du Sordet's video productions under the sign of local Crans City Club, before, notably via this particular edit that singlehandedly caught our attention and redirected it towards the scene in Nyon. Since then, it's no less than a full-length video Arthur has been working on: "TROIS TROIS TROIS", a thirty-minute slice of local urban skateboarding, stolen out of Chronos' mouth thanks to the almighty power of Mini-DV. You can expect the Premiere on LIVE, soon; although, Arthur has already been sharing a few sections on the Crans City Club YouTube channel. So today, we're featuring the latest one to date: Yannick Eberhard's segment - goofy-footed since the first step - in the occasional company of Robin Fankhauser, but you can also explore and watch the ones of Albert Lopes and of Loïc Beirnaert (co-featuring Tom Armand). Catch a sneak peek and get excited for more, soon!

Iron, lion, Nyon

What better way to make your Sunday than by running into a solid skate montage straight out of a striving, yet widely unrecognized scene - just one instance out of a good billion of them out there, really - despite the locals' best efforts on the field? Well at least, that's what we're more than happy to share with you today, under the form of this top notch edit made in Nyon, Switzerland - a small city strong of its seclusion from skate pop culture, its twenty thousand inhabitants and Arthur Du Sordet's talent when it comes to documentation duties, and the man didn't shy away from telling us a bit more:

"Just to contextualize, "Cranscityclub" or "333" is a skate collective type of thing that we run to try and push skating in our small town of Nyon, Switzerland. 

We organize skate lessons for the youth, contests, music gigs and we're basically the link between skateboarders and the local authorities - they entrust us with skatepark projects and whatnot.
 
Although we don't have 'flashy' skaters, the scene here is pretty huge; however, being a small town, we tend to feel kind of disconnected from the rest of the Swiss skate microcosm.
 
But that's only more fuel for my motivation when it comes to filming and dropping edits, as though to 'put Nyon on the map'!" - Arthur Du Sordet
 
And this particular edit, "333 x LEBLYZAR" is the opportunity for Ebly Kaeslin's rather unique style to shine - the man clearly doesn't care for the hottest trends in trick selection or, at least, knows how to retain only the best elements from them, it seems. The contrasted black and a white works well here, and the final result isn't without being reminiscent of "The Strongest of the Strange" by Pontus Alv, or some of the early Heroin videos, even - just to mention another trait that most people shouldn't complain about, really!
