Connor Kammerer

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.

Ciao

Little information has been surfacing about "Ciao" besides it being a new, mastered H.D. 16:9 full-length filmed entirely in N.Y.C. by Ricardo Napoli, already the author of the 2017 "Making It Happen" which followed a similar concept. Ricardo appears to be very much into documenting not just the established locals, but also the prowess of 'skate tourists' visiting from worldwide, and developing their take on interpreting the Big Apple. His Brazilian connections run deep as in addition to Kaue Cossa having a full partFelipe Oliveira repeatedly appears, not too far from a more American, but just as exotic Connor Kammerer who comes through with over a minute of opening clips. Even certain French speaking heads such as Bastien Regeste or Quentin De Briey earned their clips! But a major link Ricardo especially seems fond of cultivating is his bond to Japan, the scene of which gets the heaviest overall representation here, with full parts for Kento Yoshioka and Ryo Motohashi.

Buta!

Ah, the RIOS… Or the very last crew on earth where every one is a first name only, while the rest of the world population is only a @, in hope of insta-game fame. They prevails, far from all that and us all, and keep on exploring their home turf, from old rocks to winter distressed asphalt, while still adoring the Ol' Yellow Wheel God. Respect. Period.

The Genius

Sure, we live in times where the term "genius" is the more often than not used wrongly, but if we were to throw it with zero irony at someone, it would be to crown Connor Kammerer… And his part in Spirit Quest reminds us how he truly has found his alter-ego with Colin Read! One could even say those two were meant for each other… Just imagine the kind of conversations they must have… Now, those two propose us a new joint project, via a 45 RPM of all the music developed (with the help of that Quim guy) for Spirit Quest. It even comes with a download of the full video… You just have to dig for a record player in your parents attic, now!

NYC flavors…

A nice snapshot of New York today, showing the diversity of locs and visitors, and generations, also, from Akira Mowatt to Leo Gutman… Plus a Connor Kammerer cameo al‹ays amount to something, doesn't it?

The Warriors & Colour Group in Japan / PREMIERE

As announced yesterday, with Alan Maag's GALERIE, here we are –finally– presenting you the adventures of quite the crew (mixing some of our favorite Swiss rippers and their international friends) in Japan. Sure, they do hit the classic spots, but most notably do their fair share of exploring, thanks to their local connections. Yes, they did skate with the Japanese… All that said, this must be one of the best edits we have been proud to introduce to you guys, as a PREMIERE!

The Warriors & Colour Group in Japan / Galerie

We will present, as a PREMIERE, tomorrow the result of a trip to Japan by two Swiss crews together… Photographer and initiater of the whole thing, Alan Maag, tells and shows more, in the meantime…

"Tood"

If you would ever happen to doubt what skateboarding "has become", please type in "RIOS crew" on your analog or tactile keyboard, and set yourself straight once and for all… Because, in about two years, those guys from a forgotten by all capital have managed to create something. Something that is their own, with no sponsors, no marketing plan, no nothing apart from a video camera and good ideas, one being that they are not allowed to film twice on the same spot… Their very own thing is great enough that it is now making skaters from around the world travel to check it out, and considering the kind of guys visiting them, this thing is the good kind… Nope, not all is lost. Thanks to the RIOS!

Solos

We will not spoil one thing, but this new masterpiece from Colin Read will be carved into your brain for a while!

Night fever

Let's say it: Prize Fighter Cutlery has had one hell of a busy stay in Japan, recently, to the point of managing to team up with the mysterious Toriotoko! The result is a Tokyo night montage, as you would expect, but that includes perilous NBD's such as the "lipslide gorilla out"… Unless you have a better name for it?

Tokyo postcard!

Super 8 mixed with HD, experimental soundtrack: one could think this is a list of clichés to avoid, but the final result will surprise you and sweep you, whatever your tastes might be… Why? Simply because, on top of the skating documented, you will get that special feeling of discovering a new city in between the long push around, the non-spots skated just because they are there, and you are there, and the laughers with friends, just because they are there with you, even if you actually meet for the first time an hour ago.

Tengunderground

We had shown you as a Live exclusive the part entirely filmed on roof tops from Tengu, Colin Read's video, and here is the underground version with, once again, a few ideas you probably should not try to replicate, creating a fascinating ode to danger in its realest form…
