Literal r(a)ising sun

The first excerpt from the new Far East Skate Network DVD "BEYOND THE BROADCASTINGS" (available straight from them here, and in Europe here) to pop up online is no other than Léo Valls' part, filmed by Shigeta Iha at the service of Takahiro Morita's vision and theory - one according to which, allegedly, early morning energy is especially favorable to purely spontaneous skateboarding. And so that's how, throughout one month back in 2014 (right after the filming of the Magenta full-length video "JUST CRUISE"), filming meet-ups were arranged every Saturday, 5:30 A.M. at the Sunplaza spot in Nakano, Tokyo prior to exploring the neighboring streets and alleyways, in search of the next curb to exploit - and let's not even get into the now world-renowned metaru banksu de gozaimasu... The footage took its time to show up, but the energy only aged like the finest of Bordeaux wines - and here's perhaps an opportunity to remind you, on a side note, about the recent release of "BORDEAUX EXPOSURE III" by Julien Januszkiewiczhere. The - original - soundtrack is by the amazing Yoshiharu Yoshida (of O.P.S.B.), and it's Léo's wife and newly a mother, Lauren, who sings and will teach you some yoga.

Locals only

So, yeah, you can locate all the spots you want on Google Maps, but, end of the day, the best way to discover a new city is to skate it with its locals… You're in luck, today, Masaki Ui is taking you around Bordeaux with his crew, with a completely handmade postcard!
