Danny Renaud

Best-of N.J!

For the time he’s been filming in New Jersey, Andrew Petillo has seen many things in front of his camera. So he concocted us here a little compilation of the best things he could immortalize. On the menu something to satisfy everyone from Danny Renaud to Al Davis, and even Jake Johnson. Some clips are already out, others are unreleased so go for it! Wishing you a good viewing, with perhaps a touch of nostalgia for some.

Not so static

Falling into the category of very (very) good news, Danny Renaud's part in the Static III video is finally available free thanks to our friends from Theories of Atlantis. As you know, to get this magnificent final result you need Josh Stewart at the realization. But in addition to that we have an amazing Danny Renaud making us a pure demonstration of street skating in what is the best. A mastery of an almost perfect flatground, grinds which seems impossible at first glance, tricky endless manuals, and a lot of good big gaps because otherwise the panoply is not complete. All that with a good dose of speed and a unique style, in short a real Swiss knife of skateboard. It might not look like it, but this video was released a decade ago, and has not aged a day since… Classic material.

Taylor alert!

Looks like Valencia is quickly becoming a hit destination, and for good reasons… Here the crew is American, apart from a Dom Henry on top of his game, and the skating is top notch, but here, mister Nawrocki is the one that will stay branded in your tired and saturated brain! Power and technique, put to a good use: it's all here!

Return of the Renaud

We knew he was back from Hell, but his part in the recent Politic full length reminds us many great memories… Always had a thing to tie up great lines, didn't he!?

Division

Yep, they are announcing us a full-length, at Politic, and considering the quality of their riders, and of their video productions, we are just happy now… Hell, September is around the corner, isn't it? Yep, get used to it… With a Taylor Nawrocki on top of his game at the moment, a Caddo, a… Well, yeah, we told you it was good shit!

Street boy(s)

Who's wouldn't be happy to watch Danny Renaud skating? And Miami is one of those places that looks good through a fish-eye…

Spivey alert!

So, this trip from the always on point Politic heads could easily be filed under "Renaud alert" or "Caddo alert", but let's use it to salute the fact that Jason Spivey officially enters our "watch out for this guy" group with, for the old timers amongst us, some Anthony Correa air, and not just for bun reasons…

Derm alert!

Young Derm had taken our collective heart by surprise a few months ago: king of the "non-spots" and of the unpredictable trick, he repeats the performance with unexpected moves where you would not want to skate, at about every clip in here. Also, add a solid back up from the whole Politic crew, and Danny Renaud footage that will put a smile on the grumpiest amongst us old men…

Making-of

The most interesting, here, apart from giving us the occasion to witness the efforts that take filming a full length as important as Static III, is the chance to face the greatness of Danny Renaud and Olly Todd at their prime… Let's not even mention the only Sabback trick, a moment of pure grace on what actually looks like a trap disguised as a possible spot. But, well, Josh, when is the 4 dropping, seriously!?

Caddo & cie

We were rejoicing about the recent Dave Caddo addition to Politic, hoping for a nice welcome part at some point. Well, here it is, and it delivers! Add great things from about every other team member, plus finding out (at least for us!) about the nonchalantly explosive style of Kevrick Evans, and you're looking at a few re-watchs this week. And probably way more then that!

Raw Renaud

Five minutes of never seen Danny Renaud!? Now that's a nice gift, and to top it all, there is literally no "throw away" here. Tech lines on the roughest spots, classy flip tricks that any current pro would kill to have in his next part… Well, take notes, people, take notes, and rejoice that Danny is coming back from his terrible accident, and is skating once again!

He's back

We still can't tell you much about Politic, apart from their real good taste in picking up riders… Proof here with their announcing of Danny Renaud joining their ranks! Yep, he is skating again, for real.
