Hereby we present you this year’s second tour video from the Dutch local skate shop “Dreams Shop” in Ter Heijde. Featuring Dave Phillipsen, Sebastiaan Vijverberg, Mike van Anrooy, Remco Stolze, Mats van der Meer, Jaïr Gravenbeg and special guest Nick Bax.
This October the team packed their bags and headed straight to the birthplace of the former skateboard company Cliché skateboards, Lyon, France. The younger version of me grew up with videos like Bon Appetit, showing some of the best skaters of France, like Lucas Puig and JB Gillet, killing the beautiful marble curbs. To me, it seemed like a great idea to give our youngest crewmembers a good lesson in the history of skateboarding.
The little dudes, Mats (13) and Jaïr (14), are starting to grow up like heavy players in the game, so we think it’s important to show them what it’s like to be on the road and teach them how to get around in an unknown city.
The funny thing is we try to teach them something, but in all cases, we try to keep them as childish as they can be. Because in fact, they are teaching us how to be kids again. It’s all about fun and creativity.
Note: Ali Boulala is a madman, Slappies for days, 1664 Kronenbourg, café noir, I don’t speak baguette.
Merci Lyon, a bientôt!!
