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.
Vans Skateboarding just released a new European-based video called “Much Quiet” via our friends over at Free and we highly recommend you to watch it. The almost thirty(!) minutes long edit is definitely worth the watch. Sirus F. Gahan did an amazing job filming and editing this one! We were especially hyped about the Helena Long opener part. She has an interview about the video HERE.
2020 feels so long ago. For most skateboarders it´s a year which they relate to sitting/skating at home, not being able to travel, and therefore not being able to see friends from different countries. Rassvet‘s “I Missed You” quickly reminds us of that time but also, more importantly, it shows us what happened afterward. Ever since the borders were reopened the Rassvet team has been traveling, skating, and filming for this video project. We can say for certain: It came out great!
Filmed and edited by Trevor Dare.
Carhartt WIP just came out with a brilliant full lenght video titled “INSIDE OUT”. We went to see it on the Berlin premiere and it was even better to watch this film by Romain Batard and Joaquim Bayle on the big screen. It’s a bit early to say but this might be one of the best videos of 2022. Congratulations to everyone involved!
Watch Felipe Bartolomé, Ebou Sanyang, Tolia Titaev, Sylvain Tognelli, Joseph Biais, Max Palmer, Rémy Taveira and many more give their best.
A new one by our friends from Nozbone Skateshop Paris edited by Ludovic Azémar and featuring Pierre Subra, Hugo Corbin, Luca Barattiero, Morgan Katomba, César Dubroca, Bertrand Soubrier, Léo Cruz, Sylvain Tognelli, Joseph Biais, Amélien Foures, Ben Jemmapes & Etienne Chatelain.
Carhartt WIP is often one of the anchor points where art and skateboarding join together to form a synthesis. Both live together, working in unison.
We took a little excerpt from Carhartt themselves for those that want to delve deeper into what that all means:
“Carhartt WIP Skateboarding has collaborated with renowned international art institution Galleria Continua. The project is centered around a new, experimental skate space at the gallery’s location in Boissy-le-Châtel, an hour east of the French capital. The snake run was created by MBL architects and Bureau D. Apheceix, using a series of free-form, artisanal techniques that allows the structure to blend in with its surrounding landscape.“
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.
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.
The system drops a threatening vision of the future direct via Big Brothers’ private channels.
REMY TAVEIRA, LILIAN FEV, YEELEN MOENS, QUENTIN BOILLON, EDOUARD DEPAZ, JOSEPH BIAIS, ÖCTAGON,
This is the big one from Vans’ European division. So sit down crack a brewski and enjoy!
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.
Some really gnarly skating done in some of the world’s best places to skate.
Surprising stuff from Tolia Titaev & Joseph Biais but our highlight has to be Cambryan’s ollie off a roof into a ginormous wallride.
If you know about POP you know how close to home this one hits. Also, a Carhartt collab is always a great opportunity to work with great people.
Also every time Sami El Hassani gets behind the lens we love the results.
The best possible outcome from a Moscow trip is definitely this video to which one can simply say wow…
Vans put this out from Russia with love and we managed to get our Chris Pfanner fix until the next video.
Another really nice production from two brands that exude quality!
To fully enjoy Carhartt and Pass-Port’s newest collab you must start by pressing play on this video.
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.
Anyway, enjoy the dudes in L.A.
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.
Some beautiful work by the talented Roger Gonzalez for the always changing but never boring Carhartt WIP brand. Enjoy!
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.
