Victor Campillo

"Lhyon"

We knew it already, the dudes at Hy don't lose no time emptying their pockets on every spot, and thanks to that optimal compartmentalizing allows them to maximize their skate time! So, give them a few days in Lyon to try out all the new spots that have seemed to be popping up there lately, and test out their collab with Volcom, and you know the result is going to be dope… No one will be able to say Matisse Banc did not give his all, and we will ask the question that keeps us awake at night: who is finally going to print a poster of Victor Campillo that we could have hanging over our bed!?

New Wave Film

We were bringing up Film Trucks as recently as not long ago at all - in Jérémie Daclin's Bigger Spin article, a recap of his legacy as the Lyon skateboarder who put Europe on the map of worldwide skateboarding for good in the late nineties, pretty much. Nowadays, Jérémie is still going at it, keeping himself busy without missing a beat after the disappearance of Cliché Skateboards with what claims to be the first ever truck company from the old continent.

Impeccable synchronicity as today, "Nouvelle Vague", a fifteen-minute montage made for Film Trucks by Guillaume Colucci just hit the sextuple V - a format one could argue makes for a modern equivalent of the ancient one of the full-length company video, as to better match nowadays's average attention span. But let's not disgress.

The editing works, and the imprint of Jérémie's visionary direction is strongly recognizable as the one also responsible for laying out the first blueprints for Cliché two decades ago. Out of the same ballpoint pen, the recipe is all laid out: charismatic B-roll intertwined with raw street prowess, VX-1000 cameras or anything remotely close to one, singular moments caught on tape and a homie vibe dipped in French sauce - title and double entendres included, as far as in the soundtrack. Because Jérémie believes in identity; Jérémie believes in skating as something personal, inspired and transcending the superficial aspects of its mainstream representation.

Generally a piece that's very reminiscent of "Bon Appétit" and French Fred's videos, a sweet surprise, and one that involves Jarne Verbruggen, Léo Valls, Anton Myhrvold, Adrien Coillard, Bastien Regeste, Bastien Marlin, Arno Wagner, Fred Plocq-Santos, Jérémie Daclin, Victor Campillo and Enzo Morel.

Last but not least, if ever around Venice Lyon on the 14th and 15th of September, please do not hesitate to join them guys on a tour of the local sidewalks of the most noble-or-at-least-decent kind - more info on the flyer below, drawn by none other than Mark Gonzales - évidemment.

Haze Wheels alert!

"Victor Campillo Pro d'Haze" as a title should be explicit enough universally, despite originating as an arguably questionable French pun. Anyway, yes, Victor did just turn pro for Haze WheelsBertrand Soubrier's company (read more about Bertrand in his Bigger Spin, here), as one should know by now. Expect two minutes and a half of inspired, classic street skating on some nice spots being put to great use, and some mind-boggling ledge lines at République!

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.

Campillo alert!

Must be two years now that we have been keeping a steady eye on young South of France loc, Victor Campillo. Tech without falling into the juggling side of it, powerful in full finesse, he is the real deal! And he fully demonstrates it, here, with this part for Quota… Turn your very own eyes to him, and tell us what you think!

"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!

“qu’est ce que vous faites c’est bien!”

The team haze Wheels had already shown us how demolishing the spots in Milan was easy for them, and here they are back in France. In short a little more than Victor Campillo, or Morgan Katomba, who this time play at home. Add two three pirouettes of Ruben Spelta and we get a video of the most friendly.

The backhand

While they had recently shined in the Pure Bag Juice video, Victor Campillo and Tony Rafanomezana hit us a second time with a part for BMG. At least now we are sure that they both have an incredible technique on all the tables, and we can note the balance of Victor Campillo which chaines always more and more complex manual combos. In short a youth who first put a big slap, then a very violent backhand. 

One more dose of Pure

We knew we had to keep a close eye on the guys from Pure Wolrdwide, and here they are back to put us a big slap with Bag Juice. An edit in which they are literally without mercy with all the spots they cross from the capital to Marseilles. Between Tony Rafanomezana’s (which also has an incredible part) and Ruben Planque’s bangers, the technique of Allan Arma or the inimitable style of Stanley Pradel, we will quickly end up addicted!

Meanwhile, in Marseille…

… Spring is here, and those lazy ass skateboarders at Unemployed have all the time in the world to make the best out of it! Leading by example!?

Jusqu'à la mort!

After Nyjah's new opus, yesterday, we knew you would need something to help you get back to reality, one where spots are very hard to skate, and not necessarily with drones surrounding them… You're in luck, the Demain skate co heads just put out news from Marseille, and what they have to show surely does look a lot like wherever you are!

Souples!

Remember how we have been telling you about some hyper-activity happening recently in Marseille? Well, this edit just confirms it, via the BMG crew, including Victor Campillo whose name you keep seeing here… But the homies are shredding too, fear not!
