After a longer break, Romain Batard is finally back with a new installment of one of our favorite ongoing skate series a.k.a. Giddy. Number 12 is completely filmed in the cities of Monterrey and Mexico. We get why a lot of people go there lately – the spots look amazing.
After part 1 comes the innovative part 2 which incorporates surf-techniques into skating the streets. Enjoy.
It is always lovely to see not only the results but the road to the successes. And Romain Batard always has his own fun way of getting there.
This one has a lot, that is why it is called the long one 20 minutes of fun so “GIDDY UP!
Edouard Depaz, Valentin Bauer, Joseph Biais, Lilian Fev, Marca Barbier, Remy Taveira, and many more.
Romain is killing it this year and others might have to take note! If a group of three can make this in 3 days we all should feel lazy and unproductive, no more excuses.
We hope that between the 2018 Giddy’s and the other Batard projects that we might get one last thing after this one. And after that maybe a videographer of the year award? Who knows, “the sky is the limit”.
At first when I started the Giddy series I wanted every one of them to have a different theme but in the end, I think they all end up looking almost similar to one another, same style of music same vibe.
Romain Batard is back with one of the most interesting video series in skateboarding. And ever since he delivered that quote in our interview with him he has been steadily delivering Giddy’s with a stronger sense of concept and individuality.
Steve Malet kills it in number 8! He is one of Paris’ most exciting skaters out there right now even though he is not even originally from France. But Steve is only one reason and this Giddy truly delivers from the skating, the editing, the song choice and the special effects. It is a good rounded out piece of work!
After I have been absent for almost a year, I am more than happy to take up my work again at my beloved Placemag. And to start things off by posting a clip of my treasured friend Romain Batard is more than I could have asked for. As it is with every Batard-edit, Giddy #6 provides playful skateboarding at its best, where Romain makes even the smallest tricks look great through his classic Century MK1.
