Trip

Mexican Medium

Medium Skate Mag - remember - we already introduced its two co-founders Will Jivcoff and Joel Watamaniuk to you a while back, around the time of their enterprise's earliest steps. Well close to two years later already, and despite Love Skateboards unfortunately being out of the equation by now, Medium looks like it's still going strong, still deeply rooted in Toronto but also now demonstrating the energy to export itself on the occasional skate vacation, which is just what they did here for "Jungle" - a new clip by Joel (still very much the VX-1000 fan) filmed in Mexico City, featuring skateboarding by Daniel Ravenal, Diego Brown, Felipe BartolomeJohnny PurcellScott BalkwillSkylar Kehr and Ty Beall. Everybody hucked their carcasses down some quite a few unfamiliar spots that look just as rugged as exotic. Check out the Medium website for more info!

Josh Pall / Interview

If Josh Pall's name isn't without ringing a bell to you, it's probably not because you're associating it with the latest social media 'story' of that one guy puking his guts out on the streets last night, nor because you can still recite the entirety of the contents of his latest box from his jeans sponsor that he just opened in front of a crowd of Snapchat strangers. In fact Josh is more of the discreet type, who might as well just show up unexpected and tear a spot apart - a skate tendency exemplified in the (quality) Pass~Port video offerings.

Indeed, Josh skates fast - too fast for one to scrutinize over his haircut in a clip - and that's regardless of how rugged said spot it, as he'll still come up with a quirky utilization for it, and charge towards it via more pushes than most. Keeping skateboarding impeccable!

As a continuation from yesterday's video post comprising the clip celebrating an immiment Carhartt x Pass~Port collection, here's some words we got to exchange with Josh, just in time for its launch in Paris, tomorrow.

Lisbon on fire!

Fire Island is the collective of artists from the South of Spain whose first skate video production LIVE presented to you a couple of months back, here, with all the info you might need straight from the man pulling those strings: Carlos Peraita. Now, this second clip is the result of a week-end spent in Lisbon, Portugal with Juan AmadorMarcos Castellanos and Eñaut Oyarbide, which looked like a fun one as the edit is just as packed with fun vibes and solid street skating as their first offering. All set to original music by Daniel Benegassi.

"ERORI" / WASTED / PREMIERE

"ERORI" is the name of the new Wasted video, filmed over about ten days whilst on a trip to Zaragoza, Spain. LIVE here, and now!

The great Olivier Fanchon was in charge of the editing, and found some time to spare to present his newborn to you in a few paragraphs, just below...

Dumb Ape Tour

Dumb Skateboards is an independent board brand from Italy that's on the rise! Just not any faster than twenty miles per hour, according to the bosses themselves, as it is a Piaggio Ape that they rode all the way across the West coast of the notoriously boot-shaped country. With bags of cement in the trunk and no planned itinerary, one objective is left standing: pouring concrete, everywhere! A crazy project made possible thanks to some help from Vans. Anyway, your share of good vibes and motivation for the week-end!

Iran trippin'

Original Copy (or Copies?) is the name code of the ongoing project of Slovenian photographer, videographer and extraordinaire skateboarder Tomaž Šantl, who coincidentally just happens to have  a new website up. You may remember him from earning the last part in Nikola Racan's Euro full-length epic "Solsticij" or, from more eons ago, being the filmer of some local shop videos that notably helped bring the name (and demented style) of a certain Ali Jusovic under the spotlight.

Tomzi's new baby is an Original Copy production, as expected, and also an audiovisual recap of an expedition to Iran that doubled up as a skate trip. Everything up to the musical score is original. The resulting piece is a quite conceptual one, more subtly appreciated in a quiet environment as opposed to a rush. Don't hesitate to take a gander at Tomzi's works, and skating, if you ever get such a chance.

DC meets Sofia

Let's propel off yesterday's post (the full-length video "Lunch") onto another new production by the same author. This time, it is to Sofia, Bulgaria that Krzysztof Godek brings us to, on a trip there with the Polish DC Shoes team. The crew concentrated their effort around one area: the National Palace of Culture, brimming with spots and so many possibilities it's going to be a tough one to hold against them!

"Entre Deux" / premiere

Two friends, one longing for fresh air, fresh pavement… Leave their hometown of Lyon, but to head where? Over the Alps, at least, to visit their colleague "Pepe"! Turino is not that far, but as exotic as any any other city that is not listed of the obvious skate meccas. And a city, with the right guide, will deliver.

You got the premises, now dive into this Ludovic Azémar short, teased yesterday by Louis Perruchaud's photo gallery, and get inspired to look for that fresh air you crave too.

"Entre Deux" / Louis Perruchaud / Galerie

Tomorrow, we will release "Entre Deux", a short by Ludovic Azémar about the quite dynamic duo that are Quentin Boillon and Mickael Germond. Between their hometown of Lyon and a visit to their friend "Pepe" in Turino… In order to not fall into the video only movement, another buddy, Louis Perruchaud joined in on the fun little adventure…

Sit back, relax

What better way to start 2019 for the young guys of Yardsale than leaving their tender London to taste a bit of the American East Coast? Charlie Birch and Julian Kimura in full speed lines, steez at will (especially in Charlie Birch’s smith grinds), this particular atmosphere, a Yardsale video what! Exactly what we needed. Filmed over two short weeks, the result is more than satisfying. A breath of fresh air and originality offered by the London youth.

PREMIERE / Vladimir 2018 / George Toland / INTERVIEW

Them lads never quit it! Over the past month the Internet has graced us with "Teddie", London head George Toland's R.A.D. new full-length video compiling one year worth of skateboarding by his crew filmed in many different locations throughout Europe; and last week, we were presenting you this interview and photo gallery of George Booth-Cole, the photographer of the posse and a talented one at that, who happens to document many of his mates' prowess on thirty-five millimeter film when the other George aims at the same in moving form via his trusted VX-1000. Both homonymous G's are no strangers to the most important skate video festival in Europe, the now longtime running Vladimir Film Festival occuring every September in Croatia (the 2017 documentary on which George was down to help out with already, contributing chunks of skate footage); and actually here they are today, showcasing a recap of some of the intense street skating that took place in between the exhibitions and screenings at the latest, 2018 edition of Vladimir, all filmed in the city of Pula, Croatia over the course of four days. The two played their respective roles as documentarists so well, we just had to catch up with the one who favors colors and tapes (click here for an interview with the other George), if anything just come up with enough banter to illustrate and punctuate with their souvenirs of stoke, sunshine and miscellaneous, sound shenanigans!

Seoul Hills

Today, in my humble opinion, the converse team has one of the most beautiful and most marked identity of what the current skate scene proposes us. Each new video is a real pleasure for the eyes. "Uphill" filmed by James Cruickshank in the sublime cityscapes of Seoul and its surroundings is not lacking. But this time, we can fully appriciate Juan Virues in Olympic form that completes perfectly this Picture.
