PREMIERE / Danny Fuenzalida / GREY AREA "Neverwhere" / Kuba Kaczmarczyk / INTERVIEW

Kuba Kaczmarczyk is the epitome of your ideal local O.G. head: forty-two years strong, he's been spending half of those sweating it behind the lens, documenting uprising regional talent throughout the generations and supporting the scene in his home country of Poland by many a means - all the while being caught up in work tasks aplenty, family life and the whole adult realm. His previous full-length "Grey Area" was an underground hit a few years ago, packed to the brim with unique aesthetics and raw Polish street skateboarding; its recent sequel, "Neverwhere", only carries its predecessor's torch to higher levels as it successfully perpetuates that identity, throws new faces into the mix and takes the whole concept to a new stage. It even comes packaged with an ounce of sunshine as, as though to boost everybody's serotonin levels, plenty of Miami footage ended up finding its way onto Kuba's timeline, including a whole, highly improbable, brand new Danny Fuenzalida section! LIVE Skateboard Media is stoked to present it to you today, along with the following words from the author himself he was even kind enough to deliver to us - to you.

La crème anglaise

It's been a while since we see him maltreat all kinds of spots, that’s quite normal if the Numbers Edition 5 is dedicated to fiery Kyron Davis. The big American machine which is Numbers offers us the best of British phlegm through the cream of english skaters, from the Casper Brooker to Zach Delarue. Obviously a small dose of Magnus’ pop and we will even notice a nice line of our very own Karl Salah!

Atlantic Drift alert!

Rémy Taveira was discussing it in his recent Big Spin podcast, and yes, the crew did do Vegas. And did it good, trust that!

Marc-A 'lert!

Where our very own Marc-A follows a few renown British skater to South Africa, to see what is going on there… Oh, and he rips a few spots, there, the way he knows how!

kings of hip(-pies)

Where one takes the simplest daily pleasures of skateboarding, mini-ramping and, furthermore, the good ol' hippie jump, to turn it into its very own category of performance, reaching Olympic –yet, actually creative– levels… Skateboarding is a beautiful thing, especially when it's done by dudes like the Atlantic Drift crew. Seriously…

Chris + Colin = ?

Perfection? Well, close enough, here, that's for sure… We are not gonna sing you another round of "Spirit Quest is THE best video of 2016, and beyond". (You can still cope, here or here… if you have missed out). But those two are just more than complementary. From the explosive and creative skating of Chris Jones, to the genius (a term we never use, here) of Colin Read, proved here by the soundtrack used among other things, this part is just perfect. If skateboarding is still cool, it is because of collaborations like this…

Classic spot!

Where one of the most famous London spot gets a new breath of life, and a handful of lines nobody seems to have spotted before… Bet, you did not see that one coming… Bet you already knew Jacob Harris was damn good at what he does!

Rock scissors paper!

The return of Phil Evans, who has been the most creative (on top of most active) filmmaker in Europe for a few years already, with this edit first filmed with Jak Pietryga, then re-drawn frame by frame to make it more than dope lines around the Great Smoke. About four thousands pages later, here is the fine tuned result, set to a custom made soundtrack by Gibbo. Yep, this is some great Evans, and good dose of fresh air! Not that we needed it, did we!?

Jacob Fucking Harris!

Be warned, this is a small masterpiece! Jake Harris is back with an edit that should stand the test of time, and for good reasons only… Sure, all Isle is here, and the guest are also top notch… But, mainly, the filmmaking talents of Jacob reach here a new level…

Under the paving…

French artist Raphael Zarka and the Carhartt team explore together options and limitations (or not) space has to offer, through a series of his sculptures… A conversation where each feeds from one another, to go through the labyrinth of possibilities…

Le Kyron!

This one almost slipped throuh the cracks, and it would have been a real shame, considering what Kyron Davis is giving us here: that great mix of that Brit tech on unsafe spots that we know him for, but stepped up a notch, here! Real good stuff from him, but also his mates…

Pushing it!

The homies at Push Periodical are back, with an issue 5 of magazine, and an edit by Zach Chamberlin documenting the same adventures from Paris to Budapest… Only the best, we tell you!
