Berle Pro / Paris wear test

Young Elijah Berle is now the holder of a pair of Vans sporting his name, which is never a small feat! This was too good of an occasion to not test it out in conditions that match Elijah very own style, with a simple yet efficient mix of street and transition. All of this with a hand from the neighbors at Black Shop.

All to the sweet sounds of Konnichiwa!

More on the Berle Pro, here.

Crusties

Well, rather clean ones, really, especially when it comes to tricks! Even on the crustiest spots… With a special mention to Cyrus Bennett manuals!

Latvian Labor!

Ed Gabarajevs is from Latvia originally, where he still breaks sweat over his local website Rajon TV (an enterprise you might have caught a glimpse of on here before; "rajon" translates to "projects", by the way - the ones of the housing kind), and now he just sent LIVE Skateboard Media his latest montage, starring a pretty crazy D.I.Y. concrete spot made possible by Madars Apse.

Hooded

The advantage with the hood is that it works on everyone, but today we can say that the guys from the Rave team wear it better than others. The proof images in their latest video "La Jondelle" as delirious as what they used to offer us. Delirious! Yes, but far from being ridiculous when you watch them baptize their new DIY spot with a lot of fully committed tricks. When you have as much creativity with concrete as on a skateboard, necessarily the end product has cachet.

Collapse Alert!

New year equates new horizons for the skateboarding industry or, at least, the logical perspective of managing ways to do better than the year prior in order to remain viable. The skateboarders themselves benefit from such - otherwise foreign - competitive considerations under the form of the various media getting generated to serve as those enterprises' respective marketing plans: amongst others, streams of Instagram clips, YouTube edits and even the occasional, always precious full-length video, all consisting in improbable performances intended to be convincing commercials thereby essentially making for a wide palette of styles on display for one to pick and choose from for consumption and even (we swear!) appreciation. A classic U.S. business model which has long been the standard, inciting local companies and brands worldwide to follow the same fashion of defining and proving themselves and that's just where things get interesting: in a digital age, the Internet gets to shine as an exotic, online menu of tries (some of them converted) all originating from a rich diversity of geographical locations, ensuring that we never run out of local shenanigans to get curious about.

This time, it is the French brand Collapse Skateboards that is dropping this aptly-named "Promo" featuring Matt Débauché, Hugo Westrelin, Romain Covolan, Gaëtan Decellier and George Poole, who recently turned pro for Collapse and gets curtains.

Late Christmas

As if to celebrate the end of the year, Marc Bolhuis filmer based in Rotterdam offers us Boombap the full length of the kids from the local scene. Filmed over 5 years, you have probably already seen some parts like the of Bombaklats’ one, or Yannick Witvoet’s. And frankly it's a nice late Christmas present, a very complete video, from street tech to creative powerslides. In short it announces only good things for the Dutch scene in 2019!

Faux vintage

You would have noticed by now, ut we are not necessarily that excited about contests, over here, but when the Pop Trading Company homies come up with the idea of replicating a "good ol' days" comp up to a T, from the obstacle to the general vibe, including the way it would be filmed, you know they are gonna come correct, and ended up making up miss the times when Flo Marfaing was reigning supreme on all things ledge and manual pads… Hmm, wait, we are being told that he is actually repping hard in this!

Street Lance alert!

Where the forever young Lance Mountain is not afraid to pull his street kickflip out of his deep bag of tricks, in his fifties! And that's just the tip of the iceberg… Oh, and Caleb Barnett has more than couple guest tricks in there, which will make out very own Pierre-Alexandre stoked!

Monday blu

So, how do you start off a rainy week the best possible way!? Well, by celebrating the concrete pouring obsessed "development" of the most beautiful places in the world, by drilling swimming pools and water parks there… With the La Dolce Vita crew, off course! Without them, it sure would look a lot less fun! But, frankly, how insane is that spot, seriously!?

Bastien Marlin "Iretge" / 5W's!

"Iretge" is the title of the book telling the journey of artists ADEC, Brokovich and Arkane, gone to paint, perform, and build along the way. From the Vercors region to Carcassonne, they were bound to run into flesh-and-blood "iretges", and Bastien Marlin was one of them. Long-time skater and D.I.Y. enthusiast, he is just the iretge we needed, so why deprive ourselves of a small interview?

Street Grant Alert!

We would all co-sign right away how he can murk trannies left and right, but let's never forget how much he holds it down in those mean streets, also…

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.
