Atlantic Drift alert!

Let's head to Athens, with the whole gang in full force, even if once again, it is Mike Arnold that just displays his own magic whatever the spot might be… He really is in his own bubble, for our collective pleasure!

Simplicity…

And empty lot and a good coating of wax: what else you need, really?

Buddy cam

Obviously, when the friends in question are Marca Barbier, Tom O'Reilly or Ibu Laflem, immediately the video takes another dimension. "Sphinx" born from a trip to Athens, is a real combination of styles all incredible in their own way. All ready to commit on anything, especially spots in front of which people would not stop. In short, here are the images of a generation full of creativity, and carefree with this good dose of madness. True kids stuff!

PREMIERE / "Skating Is Easy" / Pete Spooner / INTERVIEW

« Skating Is Easy » is the title of N.Y.C. transplant from Minnesota Pete Spooner's seventh (!) full-length video in thirteen years; you might remember him as one of the names behind the 2006 underground hit « Boondoggle » or the filmmaker behind the more recent « Insano ». Still a VX-1000 aficionado after all these years and consumed by making skate videos, Pete was kind enough to take the time to work with us on the release of Grady Moquin and John Manoles' shared section of « Skating Is Easy », as well as reply to an avalanche of questions; all now LIVE, for you!

Os Selvagens da rua

Let's put this Easter Sunday to good use and ponder the old adage that states that, if skateboarding is all about having fun with your friends, if it ever gets serious, the Brazilians always win at it… Maybe because they have a better understanding of pleasure? Proof here in images, on the street side of things, far far away from future Olympian stadiums…

Dumb Ape Tour

Dumb Skateboards is an independent board brand from Italy that's on the rise! Just not any faster than twenty miles per hour, according to the bosses themselves, as it is a Piaggio Ape that they rode all the way across the West coast of the notoriously boot-shaped country. With bags of cement in the trunk and no planned itinerary, one objective is left standing: pouring concrete, everywhere! A crazy project made possible thanks to some help from Vans. Anyway, your share of good vibes and motivation for the week-end!

Pilot(s)

A little more "street style" follow-up to last week edit of the antiheroes by contract gang, that stays, rest assured, all terrain gnarly, notably via an on fire Daan. And it is even approved by the Police on Bicycles of Murika!

New Pop

Well, yeah, what's new for the Pop camp!? Well, a new face, first of all, named Pascal Moelaert. A part from that, well, the usual: never seen before spots, unexpected lines, all the ingredients to a never boring routine, we say!

Vivi Turbo!

It already has been five years since Static IV dropped, and one can say that Vivien Feil's part from it has aged like fine wine… Tech when needed, clever when the spot calls for it, and always powerful: yes, this fine young man skates the way we dig, and has not really slowed down since… Can you dig it!?

Hero-chic

Now that is a nice surprise from the Antihero camp to boost your week-end: a perfectly timed and cut edit focusing more on the transition side of things (which is not a bad thing at all!), and therefore on that one Peter Hewitt fellow (Not that there is anything wrong with it!). One could ask where is Larry, though…

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.

Garçons Perdus

"Garçons Perdus" is the name of Toulouse, France-Based filmmaker Quentin Sarda's new video clip, assisted by Reda Taoussi (whom we've introduced to you before, most notably first here and then here). Their motto hasn't changed one bit: street skating, under the banner of Reda's garment company that he runs with his twin brother Amine: Lostboys88. The editing of this new piece is divided into three chapters, the pacing of which is strongly marked by flashes of strong visual identity, acted sequences and pink city stunts by Victor Cascarigny, Lucas Puig, Andy White, Seb Simon and a whole bunch of other local heads.
