Pat Hoblin

Around Midnight

Yoan Taillandier's visual craftsmanship and sharpest fish-eye skills than most is what you can thank for - amongst many other influential video pieces - the first "Minuit" video, as early as 2011 - the underground hit that shook the world, and made refined street skating presented well a focus in the whole Western skate world again, all the while itself being directly influenced by the minutiae of a sophisticated Japanese skate scene. Word on the street is that whoever it is that the relevancy of the aforementioned film may have flown over the head of at the time, due to being spiritually phagocitized by the hottest Californian trends and accustomed to a religion of wooden skatepark-based podcasts, is still trying their best to recreate that video and instill it with just as impactful long-term significancy to this day, and that's eight years later...

Anyway, even though Yoan, the filmer, never really left anywhere himself (as can be attested by his works for clothing brand Futur), this new edit displays the willpower to bring Minuit altogether back in full force, notably by the means of a new series of web clips this piece is the first installment in, so far; consisting in footage filmed from Paris to Italy, going through Marseille and exploring even the cuttiest spots, then consequently experienced by Pat HoblinJames ColemanYaje Popson, Logan Lewis, Yensi Lama and Evan Kinori - more European than ever for the most part, and even in broad daylight, much to our delight!

Funky Pat(-hs)!

Always where you do not expect him, that Mister Hoblin! At least when it comes to the precarious lines he decides to negotiate, between tightrope walking and straight danger. On the other hand, you do know he will have picked the "comfy option" when it came to decide on pants to wear that morning… The kind of skating that makes you want to think more on your environment and how you deal with it, while working on your pop at the same time!

Meanies

Many new heads in this new LurkNYC prod', in between up and coming kids and summer tourists. Where we note a very mean featuring from the Place heads! Nice one!

Mean meat

The LURK are here, with a Max Garson featuring, and a Shanahan that is single handedly bringing back the early 2000 / fat shoes look back…

Nobody's Alley

The Lurk NYC, heads, we follow them like all of you, for their littles edits full of that NYC streets flavor, but here, they step it up! The skating is top notch, on a large palette of super urban spots, John Shanahan confirms his recent exploits, and this could be a lost B-side of a certain Mixtape that came out in 1998.
