  1. Static power

    Ben Gore’s part from Josh Stewart's notorious « Static IV » 2014 full-length (double!) epic just went live! Filmed between San Francisco and New York City by Josh Stewart, Ryan Garshell and Zach Chamberlin. Two minutes of beautiful images captured on sixteen millimeter film and mini-DV tape, speed aplenty, clean maneuvers: everything one needs in order to feel like asking for some more!

  2. Six pack!

    We haven't been without introducing you to Loophole - the S.F.-based wheel company piloted by some of the best - before; and if the name of Zach Chamberlin still eludes you to this day somehow, then we strongly encourage you to do some research!

    Anyway, this time, the whole roster (and what a roster, even featuring a couple of new heads) visited Seoul then Osaka, Tokyo and finally Kobe, only to bring back a twelve-minute-long piece of VX-1000 handicraft that's bound to make you mentally travel - and physically, at least as far wherever your board is resting right now.

  3. Cricri d'amour

    Despite the cancellation of its Parisian premiere last month and, more globally, a release just on time for the current apocalypse, "HELEN" still is the new Northern Co. full-length video, handicrafted by San Francisco VX-1000 maestro Zach Chamberlinthe DVD is available here and today, we even have Chris Athans' section gracing our screens, and making us dream of this abstract, downhill kingdom of steep and rough lands the man reads between the City's lines and reigns over, it seems - all the while never missing one beat, and marking wallies of various intonations onto the streets' music sheets.

    Oh, just because we can, we'll send you back to the Northern Co.'s Parisian peregrinations from a few summers back, right here!

  4. Northern Jammin'

    Just weeks after a remarkable first part in Ryan Flores' recent San Francisco video: "MERLOT"Jameel Douglas of Northern Co. can still move, and just as smoothly too as demonstrated via this dance step of an online publication of his part "HELEN", the aforementioned board brand's latest full-length offering, handicrafted by the great Zach Chamberlin and available here. Just on the basis of those two involved on either side of the VX-1000, one would be right to expect quality already, but that would still be underestimating the duo's tendency to shine over all possible expectations when it comes to the printing on tape, then pressing on DVD of skateboarding in the purest tradition of a rich Bay Area heritage. Decades just can't filter out the timeless!

    Still yearning for more? Here's a reminder of Jam and colleagues' latest Parisian peregrinations, just in case!

  5. S.F. butter

    Once again, our mates from down under over at Butter Goods demonstrate the extent of their networking skills since after a recent collaboration with DC Shoes which most notably produced this exquisite mix of Josh Roberts' filming and Josh Kalis' skating, today, they're back with another one: this time with FTC, San Francisco's most legendary skateshops that already sponsored some of the original writers of modern street skateboarding, as early as in the early nineties. We'll send you back to "Finally" for the basics, then to "Penal Code 100A" for applied physics.

    In order to celebrate the launch (both online, and in-store at the S.F. and Barcelona locations) of the corresponding product, the world is granted two minutes of raw skating straight out of the downhill mecca, and from the lens of Zach Chamberlin's beloved VX-1000 (at least since the Rasa Libre videos), which is always unarguable. On the other side of the lens is quite the all-stars roser: Ben Gore crushes the spots, Ryan Barlow views them as hurdles, Roger Krebs improbably kickflip frontside wallrides and Chris Athans jumps from truck to truck.

    All is right with the world!

    And for an extra bonus of similar flavors, here's a reminder of the Magenta x FTC promo from a few years back, already...

  6. Zach Chamberlin 4 W's!

    His latest edit, Old Whoops New Groove, give us the opportunity to get to know this hills specialist a bit better.
     

  7. "Vladimir" / PREMIERE

    In seven years of existence, Nikola Racan's Vladimir Film Festival has slowly but surely grown to become a remarkable institution as part of the European - not to say worldwide - skate scene, gathering hundreds of skateboarders from the whole world over in the small croatian village of Fažana every year. On location every year since (nearly) the beginning, Aymeric Nocus picked 2017 as the year to finally bring his video camera with him, as an effort to capture and share as much of that effervescence as possible, with precious VX-1000 assistance from George Toland and Rémi Luciani who documented the energy of the skate sessions. The final product is now premiereing on LIVE Skateboard Media, after physical premieres at the Mimpi Film Festival in Rio De Janeiro and the Roundabout Fest in Berlin... Worldwide connexions!

  8. Groovy Science

    Science Skateboards is Chris Morgan's company, launched in London back in 2006 and now relaunching in San Francisco, right now, a couple of years after the aforementioned owner's move to the City. From the bricks to the hills; a rough-to-rough transition that warrants a fresh website, an article in the latest, fifth-second issue of Skate Jawn, and the addition of three S.F. skaters: Harry Hafner, Bobby Groves and Josh Paz, to the team roster. A move that warrants this brand new ten-minute promo by itself, don't you reckon?

    Also on the menu: clips of the British Joe Sivell and Josh Cox, visiting the hills and back alleys for lenses manipulated by Brett Nichols and Zach Chamberlin, amongst other brillant skate filmmakers.

  9. EVENT / Roundabout Festival @ Nozbone / Sergej Vutuc / Richard Hart

    Paris-based skateshop Nozbone is proud to invite you to an exclusive edition of Sergej Vutuc’s Roundabout festival, on location, this Tuesday, March 17th at 7:00 PM.

    Originally an initiative organized in Berlin since 2017 under a more classic, less itinerant skate festival form, its success (notably warranted by an always meticulously curated program) eventually drove Sergej to push the concept to evolve and as of recently, Roundabout now just pops up here and there at the pace of Sergej’s frequent trips and various stays all over the planet; marking just as many opportunities to catch up with the varied works of skate filmmakers, photographers and artists with a wide range of backgrounds, with an accent on the quality of the presentations - as to offer an alternative to the commonly rushed standards set by an industry founded on instantaneous consumption.

    For this edition at Nozbone, Sergej - himself a longtime artist of multiple talents whose photo-, video-, paper- and sound-based productions are regularly exhibited all over the world - joined forces with U.K. born skate photographer Richard Hart - most notorious for his documentation of the U.S. scene (with a particularly remarkable eye on San Francisco) since the nineties and then his own print publication: Push Periodical, which he also utilizes to export his sharp vision across the oceans. Both creatives happen to share a common passion regarding the tangible; consequently, their works tend to revolve exclusively around the axis of analog, and the manipulation of physical matter - most commonly film of various types.

    This specific, one-of-a-kind Roundabout meeting makes for an occasion to discover or rediscover the works of those passionate characters, as it will feature an exhibition of a selection of their photographic works - in addition to a Super 8 film projection meets live sound performance, courtesy of Sergej.

    Also on that night’s program: the European premiere of « HELEN », the newest video offering from San Francisco’s most renowned independent skate brand of the modern times: Northern Co, handcrafted and orchestrated by Sony VX-1000 genius Zach Chamberlin; and a screening of the unpublished « TOLÓ II » video out of Hungary courtesy of the Rios Crew - essentially the hub of Budapest’s longtime skate activists, all duly involved in their scene, and strong of YouTube montages aplenty that only increasingly caught the attention of the rest of the world throughout the last decade.

    One particularly interesting evening for which we await you - let’s reiterate - at Nozbone Skateshop in Paris this Tuesday, March 17th as soon as 7:00 PM!
