God bless Rave

As always with Rave, when you look a little at what they do, it may seem a bit weird. But in reality, so much the better not? It is this quirk that forges their identity. It is because they allow themselves to skate all spots, small, big, wood, brick, with or without utensils (more or less catholic) that ten seconds of videos are enough to know who one has to do. But special does not mean bad, the team is composed only of excellent skaters with impeccable style and determination.

"Plus Belle La HY" / PREMIERE

If you regularly read LIVE Skateboard Media or just follow the French underground skate scene in general, then you should be familiar with the entity or at least the name HY Skate BagLIVE even interviewed Paul Austin about the brand and its previous video offering "Par HY", a few months back. "Plus Belle La HY" is - you guessed it - the title of their newest one, featuring Constantin Delmas, Fred Plocque-Santos, Pierre Leze, Pako Pion, Matt Débauché, Antoine Roussel, Léo Cholet, Florian Merten, PJ Chapuis, Victor Cascarigny, Matisse Banc, Nassim Lachab, Ben Raitano, Victor Campillo, Leezola and Paul himself (small roster...), hereby documented on a week-long skate holiday to Marseille. And just as it sounds like we could all use this type of sun ray sometime, the aforementioned Paul Himself decide to contribute to the warmth by chiming in!

Par-Hy-sians!

Yesterday, we were presenting the Hy crew, while premiering, as a LIVE exclusive, their latest video offering, by Julien Dellion, with a soundtrack by Matias Elichabehere, filmed during a recent Paris visit. The edit now free to share, and you should show around. People should dig it!

"Par Hy" / PREMIERE

It was only a matter of time before a brand such as HySkateBag rose from the willpower of a Bordeaux skate crew somehow really interested in providing the world with quality, Paris-made skate pouches yes, but not just that: their new video "PAR_HY", by Julien Dellion, just premiered in the French capital and now, LIVE Skateboard Media is presenting it to you alongside a quick interview with co-founder Paul Austin.

City perspective

"Triptych", the new book from the De Paris Yearbook camp is now available in all places with a bit of good taste, and to celebrate it –as well as the 20th anniversary of the first Paris Metrospective in 411 video magazine– they offer here a nice selection of more underground skaters than the ones you attach the French capitol to, which does not mean they lack in skills, nor contribute vastly to the local scene…

Spanish Rave

The Rave gang is back, with a thicker crew! New recruits means a serious jump in in all legitimate businesses, so, they headed to the other side of the border, in order to be able to go all in. The newest guys have held their own, while PJ keeps his boss status, here.

Meanwhile, in Paris…

Comes with an important message: "(PLZ LISTEN WITH A GOOD SOUND SYSTEM,BASS RECOMMENDED" There, we said it!
