Zach Chamberlin

Six pack!

We haven't been without introducing you to Loophole - the S.F.-based wheel company piloted by some of the best - before; and if the name of Zach Chamberlin still eludes you to this day somehow, then we strongly encourage you to do some research!

Anyway, this time, the whole roster (and what a roster, even featuring a couple of new heads) visited Seoul then Osaka, Tokyo and finally Kobe, only to bring back a twelve-minute-long piece of VX-1000 handicraft that's bound to make you mentally travel - and physically, at least as far wherever your board is resting right now.

Magenta "Balade" / Meeting... Vivien Feil!

Finally on your screens, for you to watch no sooner than right now, right here: the new Magenta full-length, "Balade", prominently filmed in the United States of America but not exclusively. The resulting mix is a twenty-minute long upbeat edit - perfect to watch before skating - that was put together pretty spontaneously, actually. You know how LIVE works by now: the opportunity was too great not to try and ask the busy Vivien Feil (one of the founding fathers of the brand, besides offspring duties of a more organic type) what's up and surprise, he did manage to find the time to come through with answers aplenty for you to absorb alongside the video, making for a solid package we are stoked to present you today!

S.F. alert!

We hinted to it already in this previous post about John Lindsay and Chris Thiessen's new garment-related enterprise, Free Travel; business-wise, a bunch is boomin' in the Bay Area these days with, equally, Loophole wheels, the uprising independent brand manufacturing soft and hard goods all destined to take a more downwards path - such as, in this case, zooming past the colorful landscapes of the streets of San Francisco, the nooks and crannies of which are hereby documented undergoing heavy physical inspection by trucks belonging to quite the epic team: co-founders Ryan Barlow (Magenta flow), Jesse Narvaez (Northern Co.) and filmer extraordinaire Zach Chamberlin, a solid roster already also happening to comprise flow master Jameel Douglas, quick feet kings Glen Fox and Chris Athans, and Roger Krebs. Glen's S.F. footage in "Stack Your Bread" especially makes it an instant classic (with impeccable timing as Glen also has a part in the new video Magenta video "Balade", currently premiering and just about to drop), and more generally everyone involves is featured playing their own role which is exactly why we love them for, and we'll definitely be keeping an eye on the certain progression of Loophole!

S.F. State!

The Internets and the current weather in France are currently on the same boat, fashion-wise: it's raining gems of clips bound to make you want to skate! And this one strikes like sunshine: State (the skater-owned shoe company on the rise) just dropped a shared montage featuring Northern Co.'s youngest Chris Athans and Brian Powderly zooming through and past the streets of a boiling, abrasive S.F. landscape of dreams as captured by one of the best to ever do it: Zach Chamberlin. Ben Gore even steals the show with an improbable guest trick!

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.

Static power

Ben Gore’s part from Josh Stewart's notorious « Static IV » 2014 full-length (double!) epic just went live! Filmed between San Francisco and New York City by Josh Stewart, Ryan Garshell and Zach Chamberlin. Two minutes of beautiful images captured on sixteen millimeter film and mini-DV tape, speed aplenty, clean maneuvers: everything one needs in order to feel like asking for some more!

Marseille, le zoo!

Wait, those Marseille kids are popping, these days! Could they be border-line hyper-active? Well, maybe not… But they sure now how to make it look good and fun, right!?

"Vladimir" / premiere

In seven years of existence, Nikola Racan's Vladimir Film Festival has slowly but surely grown to become a remarkable institution as part of the European - not to say worldwide - skate scene, gathering hundreds of skateboarders from the whole world over in the small croatian village of Fažana every year. On location every year since (nearly) the beginning, Aymeric Nocus picked 2017 as the year to finally bring his video camera with him, as an effort to capture and share as much of that effervescence as possible, with precious VX-1000 assistance from George Toland and Rémi Luciani who documented the energy of the skate sessions. The final product is now premiereing on LIVE Skateboard Media, after physical premieres at the Mimpi Film Festival in Rio De Janeiro and the Roundabout Fest in Berlin... Worldwide connexions!

The unusual somewhere else

Antwerp and Lisboa: two destinations that are so close, yet not so often considered, for obvious or not preconceptions about artisanal paving for one, and gloomy weather for the other. Nothing that could even slow down the Push Periodical homies, as they are fully aware of the adage stating that one never willing to get trialed, will never skate anything new. Plus, if you take Bobby Worrest with you, everything should and will be more than all right!

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!
