Paris AM

It's official, the Nike SB AM contest series lands in Paris, at Palais de Tokyo, nonetheless! It will be the July 14-nth week-end, with a chance to win a trip to Berlin, and more. If you want to enter the comp, head over here. And for obvious security regulations going on in town right now, reasons, as a spectator, you will also have to register, here. Meanwhile, the French riders enjoy a cruise through town, from Répu to the Dôme!

Parisii / XVI

We only needed the XVIth arrondissement to complete the grand tour of Paris launched by Greg Dezecot and Olivier Fanchon, three years ago… Well, here it is! And it is a great episode, notably for its special guest, the most German Parisian or the most Parisian German you can find: Michael Mackrodt! And what a better mascot for Parisii, as he is the man with the most spots in mind for all of Paris, its suburbs and even a bit further than that… As for the XVIth, it is manly known for its Dôme, its steps, its ledges and marble flat now skated to pieces, and apart from that not that well explored, really. Therefore, this stood as the perfect finale for a project dedicated to stay away from Paris beaten paths. Finale? Maybe not… We will tell you more in 2016, and until now, please enjoy our gift to you, Parisii XVI, and you can now go through every single arrondissement in Paris, here!

Souvenirs de Futur

Well, looks like this one was custom made for us: Juan Saavedra and Santiago Sasson meeting a fine picked selection of some of our favorite skaters from Belgium and Holland on their spots, one could not dream of a better idea! Oh, yeah, actually, add Yoan Taillandier behind (and in front of) the lens! Seems like the Futur Inc really just get it. Hang on, it's a trip!

Parisii / XIV

Yep, Parisii is back in full force, this time to explore Paris XIVth arrondissement, and this time with reinforcement! The Magenta homies were in town to celebrate their fifth anniversary, and their skating always paralleled with that search for a good sesh and a good laugh, wherever the sidewalks may lead you to… It was only logical to team up in order to explore an often overlooked area of the city. Known for its Tour Montparnasse, a symbol for a bright future in 1973, and now one for all past architectural mistakes, the neighborhood can be way more than this piece of modernism now gone obsolete. So let you guided, or at least get inspired, by this second to last episode of Parisii!

You can find the whole project, here!

Deuxième vague!

All Paris, and De Paris in four edits from local film makers, with a bunch of interludes, and the follow-up to Jeux d'Ombres already presented on Live? Can't say no!

Parisii / XX

Last arrondissement of Paris, the XXth will actually be the last before last before last for Parisii! The exploration of the city keeps on, street by street, and even if it takes a bit of time, it is counterbalanced by some golden nuggets of spots! This area delivers some surprises on top of the downhill routes it is known for. Yes, the XXth has more to offer than the Père-Lachaise cemetery and Jim Morrison's grave! Get on board for a virtual session that might even get the locals to leave the République Plaza for once…
And remember, you can find all Parisii, since its beginning, here.


Two of our favorite Parisians, or more or less rare spots, including a bunch located in Madrid, a city with a special place in our heart: those Futur dudes have us all figured out! Take a seat, and enjoy lines you actually want to see by Juan and Santiago topped with the dose of style that makes a difference. This is the official Live Skateboard Media pick of the day, by unanimous decision!

City of Lousy

How could it get better than a portable house, you say? One that is skatable, also? Yep, that'd be ace… They got you covered at Lousy Livin', in more than one way, and the Bloby's and co are ready to co-sign this!

Parisii XVIII

Second to most populated arrondissement of the city, the XVIIIth is a fascinating cocktail, in between highly touristic spots and a social and cultural diversity that surely ranked it quite high amongst the infamous "no go zones" of Fox News… All this actually makes for one of the most representative areas of Paris, for all its contradictions and its richness. Plus, this arrondissement is built on hills, which can only add to it all!
When it comes to Parisii, the XVIIIth is also a mix of sorts, as Greg Dezecot and Olivier Fanchon have decided to invite the new generation along, including its filmers. Expect to see new faces, on spots rarely seen, but all still cooked à la Parisii!
You can follow all Parisii, since the beginning, here.

Parisii XIX

Our Paris visit, orchestrated by Greg Dezecot and Olivier Fanchon continues! The XIXth arrondissement on its own, both improbable cultural patchwork and an often heterogeneous mix of classic Paris landscape with already dated modern architecture, would already be the ideal playground, but this edit goes a bit further. This is the first collaboration of the project creators with Matias Elichabehere, a musician whose work you would already know from Minuit, Soleil Levant, or Lenz2… Matias even filmed quite a lot for this, on top of cutting a custom fit soundtrack, offering you a quite special Parisii episode. Enjoy with both eyes and ears!

Ahh, Acapulco…

Considering the current forecast, it would be nice to fly to Acapulco, but for now we'll have to enjoy following around the Parisii usual suspects that ride for the NYC based company of the same name, seen here enjoying the last days of summer! Now that should boost you up a bit!

Parisii I, II, III and IV

The Paris visit continues, this time keeping it central! The city’s first four arrondissements are the smaller ones, but are still rich in spots… Only negative point: you have to share them with the 27 millions of tourists passing by each year! Parisii is a Live exclusive – kindly supported by Nike– and a work in progress, so if you want to contribute a trick or a spot, feel free to join in! Meanwhile, stay tuned, with the map.
