  1. Bastien Marlin "Iretge" / 5W's!

    "Iretge" is the title of the book telling the journey of artists ADEC, Brokovich and Arkane, gone to paint, perform, and build along the way. From the Vercors region to Carcassonne, they were bound to run into flesh-and-blood "iretges", and Bastien Marlin was one of them. Long-time skater and D.I.Y. enthusiast, he is just the iretge we needed, so why deprive ourselves of a small interview?
  2. B(e)(e)r

    "B(e)(e)r" is a new independent full-length video out of Montpellier, France, assembled by Bastien Regeste featuring parts for Him Self, one quite energic Théo Moga and Aymeric Sampol, an expert in secluded spots. Please just survive the introductory minute-long Ty Evans "tribute" and then you'll realize that those guys take themselves less seriously than most, all the while skating hard. Because yes, we're talking about a whole crew as guests are numerous, featuring locals Papaye, Etienne Blanc, Luka Rémy, Matéo Akermoun, Nico Mouk, Augustin Daridon, Bastien Marlin, Guillaume Carville, Clément Om, Mathis Regeste, Lionel Cabos, Adam Löfler, Tristan Chambaud, Hugo Villanova and Lou Fulford.

  3. Local tourism

    A more-or-less guided tour of the Montpellier, France region and its spots in H.D. - ya down? Because that's exactly what the young Odran Fernandez is offering here, albeit not without help from the local skateshop: Five-O, that has been encouraging initiatives of this type since 1997, already. Behind the filming, some LIVE regulars such as Bastien Regeste and Bastien Marlin can be spotted but it's really Axel Niqueux who threw it all together, all the while making sure the soundtrack would live up to our recollections of some of the best Euro skate videos to have come out in 2005. Teasing aside, here's a sweet little postcard for motivation's, activism's and 360 shove-its' sake!

  4. New Wave Film

    We were bringing up Film Trucks as recently as not long ago at all - in Jérémie Daclin's Bigger Spin article, a recap of his legacy as the Lyon skateboarder who put Europe on the map of worldwide skateboarding for good in the late nineties, pretty much. Nowadays, Jérémie is still going at it, keeping himself busy without missing a beat after the disappearance of Cliché Skateboards with what claims to be the first ever truck company from the old continent.

    Impeccable synchronicity as today, "Nouvelle Vague", a fifteen-minute montage made for Film Trucks by Guillaume Colucci just hit the sextuple V - a format one could argue makes for a modern equivalent of the ancient one of the full-length company video, as to better match nowadays's average attention span. But let's not disgress.

    The editing works, and the imprint of Jérémie's visionary direction is strongly recognizable as the one also responsible for laying out the first blueprints for Cliché two decades ago. Out of the same ballpoint pen, the recipe is all laid out: charismatic B-roll intertwined with raw street prowess, VX-1000 cameras or anything remotely close to one, singular moments caught on tape and a homie vibe dipped in French sauce - title and double entendres included, as far as in the soundtrack. Because Jérémie believes in identity; Jérémie believes in skating as something personal, inspired and transcending the superficial aspects of its mainstream representation.

    Generally a piece that's very reminiscent of "Bon Appétit" and French Fred's videos, a sweet surprise, and one that involves Jarne Verbruggen, Léo Valls, Anton Myhrvold, Adrien Coillard, Bastien Regeste, Bastien Marlin, Arno Wagner, Fred Plocq-Santos, Jérémie Daclin, Victor Campillo and Enzo Morel.

    Last but not least, if ever around Venice Lyon on the 14th and 15th of September, please do not hesitate to join them guys on a tour of the local sidewalks of the most noble-or-at-least-decent kind - more info on the flyer below, drawn by none other than Mark Gonzales - évidemment.

  7. Lost Into The Wild / PREMIERE

    Sure, adventure can –and usually will– be found at the end of one's street, but once in a while it is necessary to go seek a bit further, to get some fresh air… And that kick of oxygen, they sure got it, Bastien Marlin, Florian Cordier, Thomas Régnier and Jérémi Stadler, deep in the Eastern Pyrenees! Far from the cities, but still looking at it all with their skater eye… They sure found some spots, and the unconventional ones at that, but they also got the guts, to not say more, to tackle them!
