LIVE SB REPORT

What’s a city? Its people, we say… More than its architectural specifics or urban furniture. Because they are making the doing and undoing, the everyday life of the city, and pumps in and out the blood into its streets.
This is why, when came the idea to shoot a snapshot of Paris in its Now, we all looked at Augustin Giovannoni, because he knows everybody, because he is everywhere at the same time, and because he always knows what is up. He is skateboarding in Paris. And it has been true since we launched LIVE –and even before that– despite his young age. Here lies his very own take on his city, one that belongs as much to its locals as its visitors. He’s crossed paths with them all, during a year, and here is what he made of it all.
A report supported by Nike SB, illuminated by Alexis Jamet’s animations and put in music by Matias Elichabehere, through a custom fit new track.

Alex Raeymaekers / le remix

All right, it is Alex's turn to get the Victor Demonte, remix treatment of his Pop Trading Company footage, just like he did for Noah Bunink. Mister Raeymaekers has got the quick feet thing mastered, and puts it to great use, so you should dig it! Street skating as we would love to do, with a smile on his face at all times… Well, almost. Another LIVE exclusive!

Giddy #1 / PREMIERE

You may remember Romain Batard from the Frame by Frame full-length, or his multiple collaborations with LIVE, like his rather innovating Hors Champ, or his recent collaboration with Alexis Jamet… Well, he is back behind th

Pushing it!

The homies at Push Periodical are back, with an issue 5 of magazine, and an edit by Zach Chamberlin documenting the same adventures from Paris to Budapest… Only the best, we tell you!

Rebound

Beware: you're in for a laugh or two! Romain Batard is known to be able to convey the explosive side of skateboarding, as well as its hilarious side, the way it is all interlaced in real life. His new full-length is in direct lineage of his precedent pieces, only with a wider spectrum of skaters, due to his recent move to Paris. Rebound confirms also a recent philosophical theory pointing out the fact that in French street skating, Hugo Maillard always steals the show, as he appears to have way more fun than anyone else, while steady killing it. This is gold, Jerry, gold!

Meanwhile, in Paris…

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

Can you feel it?

We have been living under the Tonic menace for a minute, now, but shit just got real… The Rennes locs have been amongst the most active but also the most original in France for a few years, now, so it was only a question of time before they started their own thing. The real beauty lies in the fact that follow no rule! Then again, they never looked like they would, but Tonic really is "100" as you say on Instagram. We won't even pinpoint Hugo Maillard as he is his usual French King of Quick Feet, but we'll note the appropriation of one of the most insane bass line in the history of House Music.

(Note to self: work on a sociological essay about the late popularity of House amongst young skaters in the 2010's… Hell, is there even a hip name for that decade?)

PLUS / Marseille / Premiere

The summer is young, and "the Roomies" are still migrating around Europe, this time posing their bags for a few days in Marseille, sharing sessions and unexpected pots with the locals. This city is rarely visited, somehow, and full of resources…

Young Parisians

You might recognize some of their footwork from the most recent Parisii episode, and you'll rejoice with us about the fact that the new generation isn't letting Paris winter stop them!
