Gotta love the Vans Europe team for their ability to go for it in any and every situation or spot. We don’t want to spoil the trick but we were really stoked to see Dustin Dollin with a great ender trick in this!
On a side note Pfanner is like a very fine wine isn’t he.
A new Giddy is upon us and with all other episodes of this series, this has a concept, a very simple form follows function type of concept. You view stuff on your phone, you film stuff on your phone so this one is sized for viewing on your phone.
A new Video of so-called “Leftovers” from the Natural Born Cooler Video has surfaced. We can’t really agree with that description of the footage, because we really enjoyed the clip, which was filmed and edited by Paul Labadie.
We have been told about this project a few months ago and seeing that it finally came together is amazing. Joseph Biais has been on top of the European scene for so long but he always kept it his secret. Here’s another Romain Batard concept film instant classic.
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.

Carhartt WIP is going hard lately. First, the PACCBET collabo and now a video featuring: Felipe Bartolomé, Sammy Winter, Igor Fardin, Sylvain Tognelli, Tolia Titaev, Bram De Cleen, Joseph Biais, Josh Pall and Mr. “TAV” himself Rémy Taveira.
Guillaume Périmony obviously got so inspired by Rémy’s surreal talent on the board that he decided to incorporate none other than Hans Richter’s surreal Dadaist work in this video. A master chess move! Enjoy.
