Léo Valls

Vivi Turbo!

It already has been five years since Static IV dropped, and one can say that Vivien Feil's part from it has aged like fine wine… Tech when needed, clever when the spot calls for it, and always powerful: yes, this fine young man skates the way we dig, and has not really slowed down since… Can you dig it!?

PLAY!

"PLAY!" is the name of a new exhibition of colorful, ephemeral and skatable structures soon to be scattered throughout Bordeaux, here and there from June 20th to August 20th, 2019. An initiative pushed by local non-profit organization Board'O as part as the municipal program "Liberté !", conceived by Leo Valls and Nicolas Malinowsky who again ponder the evolution of the quantity of space left within the urban environment for playful, skateboarding purposes and other fundamental individual liberties. As a teaser for this summer, here's a skate clip filmed by Doug Guillot, Pierre David and Yentl Touboul inside the Bordeaux National Opera - pretty please!

Street monsters!

"Monstro De Rua" is the title of Rémi Luciani aka. Marseille Zoo's latest web edit - you may remember the author from the eponymous video series or, more recently, from "NCE" or perhaps this mixtape of Northern France OG, Hervé Coneim. Well this time, the devil came down to Bordeaux, and it's the shock duo of local Leo Valls with the visiting Brazilian Sergio Santoro that stole the show during the couple of sunny days the filming process lasted. As expected from the pair, the resulting clips are pure street freestyle, occasionally punctuated by solid interventions from Vivien FeilSergio Cadaré (the comeback!) and Arthur Giat.

Magenta "Balade" / Meeting... Vivien Feil!

Finally on your screens, for you to watch no sooner than right now, right here: the new Magenta full-length, "Balade", prominently filmed in the United States of America but not exclusively. The resulting mix is a twenty-minute long upbeat edit - perfect to watch before skating - that was put together pretty spontaneously, actually. You know how LIVE works by now: the opportunity was too great not to try and ask the busy Vivien Feil (one of the founding fathers of the brand, besides offspring duties of a more organic type) what's up and surprise, he did manage to find the time to come through with answers aplenty for you to absorb alongside the video, making for a solid package we are stoked to present you today!

Marble Exposure!

"Leo And Sergio" - one, two, what is this? Nothing but the new production from the man behind "Bordeaux Exposure" 1 and 2Julien Januszkiewicz, who jumped on the opportunity to gather two iconic Bordeaux heads: Leo Valls (who no longer needs an introduction) and local O.G. Sergio Cadaré, who strongly inspired and influenced Leo as a kid and used to rep his city to the max in the previous decade. After an extended stay in California, Sergio is back to claim all the new bench spots Bordeaux now has to offer, all the while sharing nothing but good vibes with Leo - himself no stranger to ledge tech. The resulting piece is one explosive mix that's bound to catch you off guard!

Better late than never…

Because, well, yes, that new Yoan Taillandier edit is made of footage filmed in San Francisco five years ago, but the great thing about skateboarding, just like for wine, is that it ages well, and even often really well. Well, unless you are on team managing duties… One will notably note what could almost make a full part of James Coleman and his signature powerful yet flowing style.

Aquatic Spirit

A "Spirit Quest" section is bound to always have the same impact at first watch: first one gets confused by the frenetic pictures their eyes are resting on. Then, everything gradually becomes coherent and in the end, culminates as a sum that's incredibly pleasant to watch. And if this video looks like no other, it’s due to Colin Read's mind brimming with creativity, behind the lens. Everything is precisely thought out, and designed to hit hard thanks to a combo of filming, editing and spot selection taken to new heights. The resulting piece is so inspiring, just watching it could spark off vocations!

Marseille, le zoo!

Wait, those Marseille kids are popping, these days! Could they be border-line hyper-active? Well, maybe not… But they sure now how to make it look good and fun, right!?

Meeting… Leo Valls!

Were Leo Valls' skateboarding to ever retain only one remarkable quality, that would surely has to be its faculty to glide the man along the tracks of one long and fancy journey... As to look back on and ponder this unusual pace of living, we managed to catch up with Leo in his hometown of Bordeaux, a life recently encapsulated by Blake Myers under the form of a sixteen-millimiter "Good Weekend".

Good weekend, indeed!

Let's head out to Bordeaux for a sun drenched couple days… Count us in, especially if we are to be lead around the old part of town by local Léo Valls! A breath of fresh air, all captured beautifully by Blake Myers! More about all this, here, soon…

Salam

Where the Magenta heads try to bring back together two worlds by slapping David Axelrod's Christian Mass to their footage from a recent visit to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Set the debate of the actual name of God (if you belive he/she exists), and you got a strong edit, despite the grueling heat you can actually feel!
