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.

UNEMPLOYED / "Trial Period" / GALLERY

Our favorite self-proclaimed Unemployed people actually run a griptape company from Marseille, France, and just put out a new edit: "TRIAL PERIOD", as though to showcase a willpower to make their own designation lie. They are indeed super productive, with still plenty in the works; as far as recent productions, one might remember "AVANCE L'ARRIERE". This new edit is about fifteen minutes long yet will leave you wanting for more, as the (trip) footage will cocoon you in a world of perfect spots of all kinds like the South of France altogether has to offer: Marseille, Lyon and the general region, although they did go to Paris for some tech prowess.

Among the featured skaters are Victor CampilloNassim LachhabMatisse Banc and many more; watch the video on this page, and take a gander at the photo gallery above that Brian Bunting was kind enough to contribute, just so we could present it to you.

Hooded

The advantage with the hood is that it works on everyone, but today we can say that the guys from the Rave team wear it better than others. The proof images in their latest video "La Jondelle" as delirious as what they used to offer us. Delirious! Yes, but far from being ridiculous when you watch them baptize their new DIY spot with a lot of fully committed tricks. When you have as much creativity with concrete as on a skateboard, necessarily the end product has cachet.

"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!

The Swiss dream

Every time they come back it is to offer us something we never saw. And here is another dose of never seen, but in Switzerland! Make tricks of which they are the only ones to have the secret on spots that they are the only ones able to skate this way, the whole accompanied by some good slams. here is the cocktail recipe for a good Rave video. We will also notice one named Léo Cholet who gives us a very serious skateboarding lesson.

Emmanuel et Brigitte ont adopté un chien

Or where the Rave(-rs) team up with the esteemed colleagues of Jump skateshop to visit Montpellier… Because what a better address to start a new place visit than the place that provides all the local scene? You would guess what happened after that: spots you most likely have never seen, fresh skating on it and the most bizarre video title in a real long time!

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.

The A side!

We were recently proposed the Unemployed version, but here is the official version of this trip to Marseille the French Emerica team just took, including here all the hammers, and more! On will note the powerful Matisse, and enjoy our very own PJ in fine form!

Rave skateboards, 5 W's!

PJ Chapuis is back, this time with a gang, in order to introduce their latest project: RAVE! Say what!?

PJ Chapuis / "Under Paris" / PREMIERE

Announced yesterday in his interview, here is PJ part, filmed over the course of a few days with his buddy Rémy Barreyat, in Paris, but in bends and alleys rarely seen… A skating he is known for, always surprising, even if you actually expect it from him. The whole thing coated in a French rap mood that should not be taken too seriously, just so you know!
