Édouard Depaz

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.

God bless Rave

As always with Rave, when you look a little at what they do, it may seem a bit weird. But in reality, so much the better not? It is this quirk that forges their identity. It is because they allow themselves to skate all spots, small, big, wood, brick, with or without utensils (more or less catholic) that ten seconds of videos are enough to know who one has to do. But special does not mean bad, the team is composed only of excellent skaters with impeccable style and determination.

Hooded

The advantage with the hood is that it works on everyone, but today we can say that the guys from the Rave team wear it better than others. The proof images in their latest video "La Jondelle" as delirious as what they used to offer us. Delirious! Yes, but far from being ridiculous when you watch them baptize their new DIY spot with a lot of fully committed tricks. When you have as much creativity with concrete as on a skateboard, necessarily the end product has cachet.

Gimme five!

"Look, ma', no hand!" Oh wait, yes hand, yes hands actually, and yes feet too… All in good spirits too, as always, when we speak about  Romain Batard!

Or where a wet and wintery Napoli doesn't seem to stop the European Levi's crew from shredding it all!

Euro Giddy!

If you ever wonder who's is really on one in French skateboarding at the moment, the best response we could offer you would be the keys to hack Romain Batard's hard-drives… They all here: Parisians, non-Parisians, tourists, visitors and dabblers! We will set aside the Taveira case, here, as he steals the show here –as in every other skate edit these days– to highlight Felipe Bartolome that appears here with no more mane and in great form!

A.E.I.U.O part 2

Our very own Augustin is back with a sick edit, filmed from Berlin to Copenhagen, but mainly around Paris, with one hell of a casting… You gonna dig it, guaranteed!

Jean genies

From Édouard Depaz to Val Bauer, we are already signing in and add the rapidly making his room in everybody's heart Quentin Boillon and you're in for quality street skating… Put those three in Paris under Joaquim Bayle's scrutinity, and you got a match!

The alpha and the omega…

Once again, the Öctagon heads demonstrate how strong minded they are, by following their original concept with a persistence one can only salute, just as well as all the talents involved. Not much more to add, apart maybe that from the skating to the editing, everything here is about impeccable, and even more!

a Bordeaux stop

The Place homies get a special visit of Bordeaux street by native, Édouard Depaz, and friends… Perfect week-end!

Croukette / PREMIERE

All right, let's make room for the youth! Here, we present you, as a LIVE exclusive, the latest Augustin Giovannoni production. Augustin is a young Parisian filmer, and it's all here: locals, République, tourists, visiting buddies! As for the title, well, according to the Blobys dictionary, it stands for "good stuff!". Let's have a look at what the new generation proposes us. No doubt, we've got a lot to (re-)learn from them!
