Giddy 11

Romain Batard, the French skate filmmaker LIVE really shouldn't have to introduce to you by now just on the basis of his longevity in the field, is back today with the eleventh chapter in his series-turned-saga "GIDDY" - and pretty clearly the most ambitious one that is, also including contributions from some equally prestigious video fiends, for a timeline just short of twenty minutes in total - but rest assured you won't catch a break!

On the menu: stunts from the usual suspects - Edouard DepazValentin BauerJoseph BiaisLilian FevMarc-A BarbierRemy Taveira - but also many others (including Max Palmer, Sylvain Tognelli, Mika Germond, Dustin Dollin... Quite the universal roster!), immortalized on Parisian spots aplenty - some classic ones and some more rare nugs, all approached with a sweet creative twist. Out of many examples, one of Soy's many fountains gets reinvented (and that's despite the mysterious disappearance of the corresponding Instagram account), but really it's the whole landscape of the French capital that gets dripped into new colors here, from the most famous plazas to the most unknown street corners possible (e.g.. le Dôme's three-flat-three, or the benches at République)... All in great fun as well, just bathing in the rhythm of the daily sessions.

Chic, chic, chic!

And as a complementary bonus, we are happy to share with y'all this photo gallery, by Max Verret!

The one and only Terrasse

The Cinquième Terrasse is one of the busiest and most active crews in Paris, even if we had not heard enough news lately. That's a smashing comeback with "TONY G" seven minutes of great skateboarding that goes way too fast for my taste. This video shows well that we are coming to a time when making the unique is worth as much, if not more, than doing the perfect. To skate a city in its own way is like showing the peculiarities that we perceive there and to highlight what we like in it. Paris under the gaze of the Cinquième Terrasse is really unique. They give off a crazy energy that is really personal to them. And when it comes to style, if Christian Hosoi validates it, you can imagine that it's not for nothing.
