  1. Tavu alert!

    If, just like us, you have been following Olivier for a while now, you do know he isn't exactly the neither expansive nor exuberant kind, and that you do have to push him out of his shell a little! Especially if you want to make him speak art or skating. Let's salute Olivier Fanchon's work here, as he managed to capture both sides of him, in complete honesty! Ladies and gentlemen, here is Monsieur Tavu, discussing ruining perfectly good maps, and also proving his very theory –according to which he doesn't really skate anymore– completely wrong… A man of talents, but you would know that!

  2. Dans le Futur

    Oscar Candon always more powerful, always more impressive. The spots are clearly really complex to skate, but he does it very well and with a lot of speed. A true force of nature in his new part for Futur filmed and edited by Olivier Fanchon.
  3. Best Of PARISII / 5 W's!

    Just a few days ago, we were presenting you "Tracked Movements", an edit of (nearly) lost Paris skate footage filmed by Franck Pierron at the dusk of the former century that we had put together for the Adidas event Das Days in the City of Lights a few weeks back... Well, our selection of screened films also comprised another original edit: a "best of" type of edit of the footage shot a few years back by Greg Dezecot and Olivier Fanchon for their crazy love child of a project aiming at documenting every spot in every district of the French capital: Parisii. Two years ago, the winning duo had already (somehow) managed to trim those years worth of footage down into a full-length; already quite the commendable feat, so imagine Greg's face when now requested to lay off his young father's duties to get back at it and do even more curating! But he pulled through, resulting in this Best Of Parisii edit we're passing on to you now, as well as some of Greg's words as we also bugged him to answer our 5W's!


    "ERORI" is the name of the new Wasted video, filmed over about ten days whilst on a trip to Zaragoza, Spain. LIVE here, and now!

    The great Olivier Fanchon was in charge of the editing, and found some time to spare to present his newborn to you in a few paragraphs, just below...

  5. Parisii XIX

    Our Paris visit, orchestrated by Greg Dezecot and Olivier Fanchon continues! The XIXth arrondissement on its own, both improbable cultural patchwork and an often heterogeneous mix of classic Paris landscape with already dated modern architecture, would already be the ideal playground, but this edit goes a bit further. This is the first collaboration of the project creators with Matias Elichabehere, a musician whose work you would already know from Minuit, Soleil Levant, or Lenz2… Matias even filmed quite a lot for this, on top of cutting a custom fit soundtrack, offering you a quite special Parisii episode. Enjoy with both eyes and ears!

  6. Parisii / XVI

    We only needed the XVIth arrondissement to complete the grand tour of Paris launched by Greg Dezecot and Olivier Fanchon, three years ago… Well, here it is! And it is a great episode, notably for its special guest, the most German Parisian or the most Parisian German you can find: Michael Mackrodt! And what a better mascot for Parisii, as he is the man with the most spots in mind for all of Paris, its suburbs and even a bit further than that… As for the XVIth, it is manly known for its Dôme, its steps, its ledges and marble flat now skated to pieces, and apart from that not that well explored, really. Therefore, this stood as the perfect finale for a project dedicated to stay away from Paris beaten paths. Finale? Maybe not… We will tell you more in 2016, and until now, please enjoy our gift to you, Parisii XVI, and you can now go through every single arrondissement in Paris, here!

  7. Matias Elichabehere / skate part

    We had introduced you to Matias and his composing work for many of the videos you have had on repeat, a few weeks ago, via the "Eyes On" done by Olivier Fanchon. Here is the skate part that ended it, so you can focus also on the time he spends outside the studio…
  8. Conversation / Alexis Jamet & Romain Batard

    This one part put together two multi-talented indivisals… Which you might have never heard of. This could help fix that!

  9. Parisii, it's on!

    Our second Off Size project is finally taking off! Its two directors give us on the lowdown on the whole concept… And take us aroud the XVIIth district for a first montage!

  10. The House of Vans Paris roomies / 5 W's!

    Anticipating this weekend's house of vans event in paris (for which you can book YOUR free ticket here already), let's take a minute to break the usual format of our traditional "5 w's" as to better ask five OF THE FRENCH vans riders one same - but oh-so-crucial - question…
