Graham Thoms

Graham Thoms / "Trabajando 4" / INTERVIEW

The Loop - you're either in, or out of it. But Graham Thoms is special as he's from there aka. Chicago, Illinois, a location with an equally special place in his heart; armed with not just "street cred" but a true urban upbringing, and the friendliest, most optimistic attitude to boot, he's been spreading Chi-love a big chunk of the old continent over as he's been fascinated by it, regularly taking trips to (and filming parts in) Barcelona for years until he eventually made the move for good and relocated to Paris, France. Now an international spokesman from My Kind Of Town, together with his homie Corey Henderson, they've been dropping full-length indie vids under the alias "Trabajando" on a strict annual basis for a few years, intertwining footage from foreign lands with their super strong hometown clips. The fourth installment is now dropping; and the winning duo was kind enough to grant LIVE Skateboard Media the diffusion of two of its segments: the Paris part, and Graham's (incredible) part. Not just that, but they also felt like contributing with words of love and boys did they have plenty to give.

CCD Warriors!

Trois CCD is the brainchild of that one Nozbone employee consisting in boiling hot parisian VX-1000, handled in due form. An initiative to follow as skateboarding-wise, the man is friends with some rippers comprising the likes of Kristian WesthPierre SubraAmbroise Fardel, the ever-so-impeccable Graham Thoms, the ever-so-young Yann Garin, the ever-so-Lucas Languasco Lucas Languasco, the ever-so-present Simon PerrottetHugo CorbinAdrien Chabiron and César Dubroca. The  urban landscape of the City of Lights is utilized to its fullest potential, and so are Jimmy's three see-see-dee's, capturing everything with a dynamism that translates all the way over and into the funny editing. Keep your eyes on them guys!

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…
