Word Is Bond "SNAFU" / PREMIERE

Multiple times in the past, LIVE has been sharing video productions by Gerardo Sosa - who is, seemingly naturally, always going great lengths to cover the skate scenes all around Latin America; remember, we even interviewed him a while back about "SITUACIÓN DE CALLE", his Buenos Aires, Argentina full-length document. Today and many urban peregrinations later, he is back with an exclusive edit: "SNAFU", three minutes all shot in Guatemala City, very much in the vein of "PACHITO" and, as a complement, he recounts:

"With everything being as hectic as it is all over the world, it's good to see skaters still hungry to get clips - no matter what. I was trying to take it easy on the video making after filming a full-length, but the fire was still going. Had a visit from our friends from Costa Rica, then found a couple of clips I thought I had lost, then went out skating with Mark Williams one afternoon and got a handful of tricks of him on some spots that no one had skated. 'Situation Normal - All Fucked Up'!" - Gerardo Sosa / Word Is Bond

And so, to be expected: your daily dose of original terrain, and some colorful maneuvers on the plank courtesy of Mark Williams, Gerardo himself, David FernandezTotioIvan Arcia and Daniel Chacón.

Now, for even more from Latin America, let's invite you to check out "FASTIDIO" on Bandcamp for the latest record to date featuring skater, artist and D.I.Y. entrepreneur Monki a.k.a. Tomas Spicolli, on Discos Corrosivos (Tomas is also affiliated with Tildaflipers and Masao gallery); also, make sure to keep an eye on Transmisión Skate Peru, a new skate platform from Lima.

George Toland globetrotter

Too hyperactive for us to even get to keep track of his pace, George Toland, the London-based Sony VX-1000 piloting expert who's normally a regular on this website recently dropped not just one, but two remarkable montages of footage collected throughout the Americas - more specifically in Queretaro, Mexico (where he notably skated with Daniel Peña and Adán Belío, whose video "EL OMBLIGO DE LA LUNA" LIVE recently presented, for Milquinientosveintiuno) and in Heredia, Costa Rica (where he wasn't without catching up with Miguel Castro and Francisco Saco, both formerly met at the Croatian Vladimir Film Festival where they had showed their video: "CANASTA"). That's two times short of twenty minutes brimming with colorful spots and organic styles, masterfully captured by a Serious Adult increasingly prone to the itinerant lifestyle.

For more Costa Rica, we may send you back to the recent "GRINGO DIARIES" by Chris Komodromos and, for more Mexico, well, just stay tuned for the next few days...

Al Fresco!

A perfect follow-up to our recent interview of Francisco Saco about his edit Moonlight: a new video, this time fully filmed in his home of Costa Rica, presenting a large chunk of a scene that deserve the ATV title, and showcases an amazing energy… If you love watching unskatable spots being taken upon with undeniable bravado, this one is for you!
