Hey man what's your style?

At the dawn of fall twenty twenty, the Magenta Skateboards epos keeps celebrating its tenth year of existence by honoring, in particular, its Parisian origins and this is exactly where this "BOULEVARD" stands, as a four-minute edit of VX-1000 footage collected by Quentin Delebecque (whose works we've recently presented to you here) and Romain Batard throughout the intertwined threads of both the streets of the French capital and last summer. On the menu: lotso' Soy clips (complete with his "STATIC III" footwear game), plenty more from Shogo Zama who apparently didn't struggle with adapting to the local terrain, and the heavy return of Masaki Ui's trademark violence and that's alongside cousins Alexis JametJulien OyeEmilien BonnetAntoine Jouguet and the whole extended family. All punctuated by a handful of Ruben Spelta featurings, some fancy two-wheel-driving courtesy of Olivier Ente, and Vivien and Glen's vacation footage!

PREMIERE / Zeropolis "LOCAL"

Zeropolis skateshop has been persisting in Lille, Northern France, for over twenty years now.

Lille is one of those places where the local, both meteorological and architectural conditions essentially require a certain degree of passion in anyone there trying to take up skateboarding, in such a landscape of wet bricks (formerly the regional norm before the edification of skateparks such as Halle de Glisse: one of Europe's first modern "street parks", the avant-garde construction of which was tackled as early as 2005, just as every European skater and their neighbor were getting sick of prefab ramps).

The motivation we're talking seems unwilling to discriminate against specific generations, judging from the impression resulting from this new (Zeropolis) video production: "Local" is a twenty-one-minute audiovisual collage in mostly high definition, carefully crafted by Thomas Larive.

Yoan Taillandier / 5 W's!

As to better accompany his new Bordeaux montage, here's another dimension of Yoan's perspective on all things MINUIT, through the prism of our classic treatment-by-the-5 W's!

PLUS / Bordeaux / Premiere

The "PLUS" episodes tell the adventures of a little crew of friends, coming from the town of Nancy, and now known as "The Roomies" in the streets of Paris. Yes, they more or less live all together, to the point they even go on group holidays. A "PLUS" is an edit, filmed and cut by Victor Demonte, sharing those few days spent here or there, and the skating shared with the locals that hosted them.

Tavu alert!

You already know "Tavu" from the Focus we gave him at the very beginning of Live, but also from the many artistic collaborations he has had around the world. Well, this part mixes the best of both his worlds, between the spots of his hometown, Lille, cooked the way he knows how, and the latest board he just drew for Magenta, inspired by Bud Powell.

Charles' tip: ***POSTCARD 3***

"This postcard comes from Bordeaux, and will get you stoked, snow or not… You can't get more 90's than that!"
