Lucas Puig

Garçons Perdus

"Garçons Perdus" is the name of Toulouse, France-Based filmmaker Quentin Sarda's new video clip, assisted by Reda Taoussi (whom we've introduced to you before, most notably first here and then here). Their motto hasn't changed one bit: street skating, under the banner of Reda's garment company that he runs with his twin brother Amine: Lostboys88. The editing of this new piece is divided into three chapters, the pacing of which is strongly marked by flashes of strong visual identity, acted sequences and pink city stunts by Victor Cascarigny, Lucas Puig, Andy White, Seb Simon and a whole bunch of other local heads.

Bossa Lucas!

Surf's up!

Who said sea air wasn't good for skaters? Or, where, in one seaside line, Lucas reminds everybody who owns this game.

Paris Days

Well no, "Das Days", was not just about LIVE movie night! A rather thick gan of Three Striped boys and girls were also here, all about enjoying what the City of Light had to offer! We will point out Gustav Tonnesen here, that is his usual board control genius with a "touch of class"…

Franck Pierron / PREMIERE / "Tracked Movements"

Here comes an improbable U.F.O.! If the name of filmer Franck Pierron doesn't ring a bell to you, you don't necessarily have to question your street cred: Franck was always the man in the shadows, masterfully documenting skateboarding from afar out of pure passion without ever feeling the need to put himself out there, as to keep it all nothing but pure fun. From the nineties to the mid-naughts (the era of the French Chill Magazine, for those who remember), Franck has been shooting every format from VX-1000 video to Super 8 or 16 mm film. His eye is of the kind that cultivates the detail and celebrates the energy; and his genuine excitement seems to translates over into the resulting footage, as his drawers are full of tapes and film imprinted by timeless stylings performed by some of the most classic skaters. The years went by and Franck ended up pursuing an audiovisuel career in the television field, but thankfully for us he never shed his youthful first love for skateboarding away and last month after we asked him if he had any unseen footage to contribute he would be sitting on that we could screen at the (now recent) Das Days Movie Night in Paris, he did not hesitate once. #Fortheculture! What this whole exchange eventually resulted in is this clip: "Tracked Movements", an improvised project title reflecting the process of that quest for lost footage, but also the one of the basic act of filming skateboarding to begin with as well as many more, even deeper meanings we will leave up to your imagination as you duly deserve. Regardless of its designation, what counts is how Francks's passion and enthusiasm have survived the past fifteen years time span and today, LIVE Skateboard Media is proud to get to present it to you under the form of this time capsule of an edit, timelessly tracking the movements of many a Parisian skate activist who eventually contributed a lot to the local culture, history and scene, each in their own respective ways. And of course, we caught up with Monsieur Franck long enough to introduce him to our classic "5 W's" treatment!

Tech alert!

One could dissert around the fact that Brian Peacock, despite his sino-american roots, represents a sort of bound to happen fusion of both French Tech© and Brazilian Tech© where impeccable technique is balanced with unaltered smoothness… Sure, he does love to make things more complicated than you or I, that's the least you could say, but does so with coolness that makes for visual candy and not jerky flip/spazz outs!

Oh, one should also note how Lucas Puig, in one whistle and one gesture of thankfulness, reminds us all show the real boss is!

Titi power!

If you were not there last Friday at the opening of the Das Days in Paris, here is Thierry Gormit part for adidas. Must we really remind you how much Titi masters his board? I don’t think it's necessary… With Lucas Puig, Gauthier Rouger and Brayan Albarenga as guests, and Hadrien Buhannic behind the camera, what more could you ask for?

palace alert!!!

Dat audio-visual tech ya need…

Trip out…

Talk about killing it… The Adidas team is know for its ability to adapt to about any terrain, with class, but this trip to Japan allows us to realize how far skateboarding has gone into something amazing to watch territories. And, in the end, just like in football, Germany wins. Well, in our case, Dennis does!

Lucas est là!

Once again, Palace takes everybody by surprise, by not dropping the infamous full-length, but a relatively short edit, with mainly two strong points: off course Lucas Puig settles in nicely, by skipping the induction seminar to just moving in the office with the sea view and all… That, and a quasi full part of Danny Brady that will put the younglings in check about why they should have full respect for the man! From Jahmal Smith to Rory Milanes –and let's not forget Lucien Clarke– everybody is in fine form, here, and no when they go to NYC it is not just to open new stores… Let's also note an Olly Todd featuring, shall we?

Mid-City Merge

They here, all here, more or less, including a couple of the new heads, and all go hard in L.A. but in the end, the best part is seeing Busenitz and Lucas battle the same manual spots! Perfect.
