DC meets Sofia

Let's propel off yesterday's post (the full-length video "Lunch") onto another new production by the same author. This time, it is to Sofia, Bulgaria that Krzysztof Godek brings us to, on a trip there with the Polish DC Shoes team. The crew concentrated their effort around one area: the National Palace of Culture, brimming with spots and so many possibilities it's going to be a tough one to hold against them!

Berle Pro / Paris wear test

Young Elijah Berle is now the holder of a pair of Vans sporting his name, which is never a small feat! This was too good of an occasion to not test it out in conditions that match Elijah very own style, with a simple yet efficient mix of street and transition. All of this with a hand from the neighbors at Black Shop.

All to the sweet sounds of Konnichiwa!

More on the Berle Pro, here.

Bon appétit!

Make sure you're ready to eat now as "Lunch" is Krzysztof Godek's new audiovisual buffet; the Polish filmmaker indeed just dropped "Lunch", a full-length video he spent the last six years filming all around Europe, from his home to Spain but also France, the U.K. and Norway, to list a few destinations. It's all HD and brimming with over a hundred (!) unique styles whose owners are so numerous, their names are impossible to enumerate and our uninitiated, very Western European understanding of the concept of vowels certainly doesn't help - but they're all in the video description and, to drop a few internationally popular names, get ready for some remarkable performances by Magnus BordewickMichal Juras and Luka Pinto. Better served boiling hot!

Free travel, bis!

Just a few weeks back, we were presenting you the first web edit for filmer Chris Thiessen and pimp John Lindsay's clothing brand: Free Travel. Well, they're back with a new production entitled "Trails", filmed over just four days in Los Angeles. The entire team (Chris AthansJesse NarvaezRyan BarlowMike Bloodsworth) shares the (literal) shine with a bunch of Northern Co. representatives, including a never-not-silky-smooth Jameel Douglas, and you're bound to feel the heat straight through the 3CCD prism - day and night!

The route of all spots

The principle is quite simple, a small French team and a Phil Zwijen as bonus (sacred bonus) went on a trip from Paris to Lyon via Lille, Tours and Clermont-Ferrand to discover spots almost unknown to the general public, in short, an alternative route (itiniéraire bis) to the good skate video. With Marca Barbier, Hugo Corbin, Matt Débauché, Santiago Sasson and the extravagant Hadrien Haverland (that we unfortunately rarely have the opportunity to admire in this kind of videos), we must obviously expect a big dose of good mood, which really put forward in the Raw cuts. And to immortalize this atmosphere and this skateboarding style that breathes creativity who is a better choice than Olivier Fanchon? We just need some nice guests like Jo Dezecot or Jérémie Daclin for it to be perfect ...

Parking Lot Stardust

You may remember Netherlands-based filmer Ziggy Schaap's previous edit: "The End" that graced the almighty Interwebs last spring. Well, the end it wasn't, as it turned out that even wintertime wasn't enough to deter the man and his crew of friends from doing their thing: this new video, "No Service" was filmed just then, over the span of two months and with a modus operandi of being underground parking lot-themed. A project for which they really did some research regarding which ones not just in the Netherlands but also Belgium had the best utilizations possible to offer, as an attempt to cover as much slippery-slick (under-)ground as possible! The final output is a much more joyful watch than one might expect from the basic concept: the VX-1000 is excellent (explicitly influenced by the likes of Yoan Taillandier), the terrain gets worked in smart ways and in the end, "No Parking" is one more great testament to how the daily weather doesn't have to dictate how much motivation one should show!

Fueling the fire

Now that's one rad little postcard video from the South of Spain! "Fire Island 01" is, rather explicitly, the first skate edit by the eponymous collective of artists (whose activity you can follow on Instagram here), and consists in three minutes of spot shredding in Seville put together in quite the trance-inducing, hypno-fun fashion. Round fisheye vig, potato camera, original soundtrack: the entire recipe of spontaneity and sincerity checks in but hey, let's have Carlos Peraita, the main representative of the Fire Island collective, break it all down to you directly:

"We are a big group of friends, friends of friends, and cousins of friends of friends who all - one way or another - dedicate ourselves to art; no matter if tattoo artists, musicians, filmmakers, architects... What connects all of us together is our love for skateboarding. Through this prism, we mostly organize exhibitions (most notably of photography and painting), parties (live music and DJ's for exhibition openings or at hostel terraces in Seville) and workshops (so far we've had two: one for land art and one for yoga). Of course, over time we couldn't help but start making skate clips too and we just dropped this clip that we had already premiered at our last event, and right now we are right in the editing process of the skate trip to Lisbon we took last month. Hopefully it will all go on, and we'll be doing lots of stuff in the years to come. Next March 14th, we're running the opening of skater / photographer James Munk in Madrid - if anyone reading this finds themselves around there then, just know that there will be loads of fresh beer!" - Carlos Peraita

4 wheel drive

Where Ben Koppl reminds us that skateboarding should necessarily practiced in confined zones while wearing boxfresh luxury shoes, and not even on street furniture that resembles said skateparks. Yep, he is doing it all over the place!

Street monsters!

"Monstro De Rua" is the title of Rémi Luciani aka. Marseille Zoo's latest web edit - you may remember the author from the eponymous video series or, more recently, from "NCE" or perhaps this mixtape of Northern France OG, Hervé Coneim. Well this time, the devil came down to Bordeaux, and it's the shock duo of local Leo Valls with the visiting Brazilian Sergio Santoro that stole the show during the couple of sunny days the filming process lasted. As expected from the pair, the resulting clips are pure street freestyle, occasionally punctuated by solid interventions from Vivien FeilSergio Cadaré (the comeback!) and Arthur Giat.

Best of both worlds!?

Actually the two best of one world, the one we try to skate in…
