Max's tip: "MERLOT"

Max Guyot (interviewed on the topic of his video "BROTHERHOOD" filmed in Nancy and Paris, here) most definitely knows what's up as he was the first to bring "MERLOT" to LIVE's attention - that is, two whole hours before its author could even find the time to e-mail us the link!

So, this "MERLOT" tastes like forty strong minutes of San Francisco brillance, equally brillantly collected by Ryan Flores featuring, on the other side of the lens, la crème de la crème of the modern local scene: Jameel Douglas (whose Parisian peregrinations you might remember from here) wraps up no less than a part in the pure tradition of the genre, then followed by the likes of Chris Athans, Ryan Barlow, Jesse Narvaez, Tom Farrell, James Sayres, Alex Greemann or Harry Hafner, amongst others, dotting the timeline... Even some classy visitors showed up: Léo VallsConnor KammererJimmy Larkz or César Dubroca too are in, and that's without even counting Tobin Valverde, Kyle Cielencki (to get more familiar with here), Justin Henry, Simon Isaksson, and even renowned filmers such as Zach Chamberlin and Brett Nichols who both broke free from the record button for a minute. And then more, with Evan Collison and finally Cody Rosenthal, who completes an eventual picture that's vibrant of many a color, style and spot (all read with science, those ones).

"MERLOT" is the result of years worth of skating and filming; it is therefore only logical that its aromas feel so fine and sweet, with a punchy aftertaste to boot!

So, will you be grabbing that bottle or what?...

"The Stack" / Northern Co. in Paris / PREMIERE

In the desperate effort to taste new grounds, some of the most savory cuisine the old continent has to offer - ranging from every almond chocolate croissant one can cram into a pocket to the most exotic cheap street pizza - and endless cruises around the skate Mecca of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, Northern Co. team riders Jesse NarvaezJameel Douglas and Tobin Valverde hopped on a plane (or two) to Paris last summer and stacked many a thing up to the ceiling - including clips!

Today, LIVE Skateboard Media is presenting this exclusive montage of some of what went down... Stay tuned with @northernco and @liveskateboardmedia for more news!

Better late than never…

Because, well, yes, that new Yoan Taillandier edit is made of footage filmed in San Francisco five years ago, but the great thing about skateboarding, just like for wine, is that it ages well, and even often really well. Well, unless you are on team managing duties… One will notably note what could almost make a full part of James Coleman and his signature powerful yet flowing style.

Rising sun dreams…

Going to Japan to skate is one thing. Going to Japan to skate, and more, with the locals is another… Off course, The Northern Co. heads have genuine friends to visit over there, and you can feel it right away… The result is that, from San Francisco hills to Osaka train station, you can feel how at home they are, with many homies that rip just as much as they do!

Tobin Valverde

Like all the homies at The Northern, Tobin is into well thought out, and smoothly executed lines, while not just sticking to the "basics", and this super well put together edit will put you instantly in the mood to go have a look at what might be happening in the streets this autumn!

North of the border

As seen in the recent issue of Push Periodical, the homies at The Northern Co. take on Los Angeles, and do it their way… A great collection of spots found along the less traveled sidewalks. Skated the way we all dig!

Northern City

Our buddies from The Northern Co. just sent some news from their most recent NYC escapade, and by looking at their clothes, it was still summer then, which allowed them to skate with many, locals or tourists… Yep, good stuff, street stuff, great street skating, as you would expect from them!

Portland Excursion

Once again, The Northern Co. do it right, with the kind of trip to Portland you would have loved to share with them, in between camping, woods exploration and stimulating street furniture. They just have it figured out! Let's note, once again, the explosive smoothness of Jameel Douglas!

Push Periodical / 5 W's!

Richard Hart is the brain and eye behind a new skateboard print thing, called Push Periodical, and we thought this was forth some questions!

The Northern West

At The Northern Co., they know how put a smile on our face, that's for sure, and this new edit is in the same vein at the previous ones, in its form and content: timeless and "classic" street skating, in the best sense possible. And the new addition, Jameel Douglas follows that path, mixing the last three decades of skateboarding that have happened in San Francisco. Ideal with a large coffee!

Cosmic sounds

Always a good pick, the SF Treat edits stand out by its selection of riders not necessarily under the spotlight, but that still handle their business when it comes to tame the less traveled back streets of San Francisco… Proof, here, from the very first line!

Northern Soul

The "SF Treat" edits are always tasteful and tasty, that you already know, and if this is one is announced as a special around the SF chapter of The Northern Co, you will know right away that you are in for a great watch, and will not be proved wrong… A great reminder that you should read an interview of the two founders of the American independent brand by the good people at Palomino!
