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.

A film by Victor Demonte & our man in Paris Augustin Giovanonni. Always good to see a new generation coming up.
The Terrasse is back and in style, let yourself be surprised by the spots and the tricks.
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.
He’s been a regular guest on our website and even went on tour with us a few weeks ago. Now it is finally time for a full Marca part by our man Augustin Giovannoni. Good one, guys!
Our frenchman Augustin Giovannoni aka. Nnoni is back with a new project and it’s his best work so far. Make yourself comfortable and watch Oscar Candon, Marca Barbier, Paul Grund, Tom O’reilly & a lot more.
A bunch of Parisian went to Athens to skip the last few weeks of winter. Athen’s got spots for days!
Feat.: Auguste Bouznad, Tom Oreilly, Marca Barbier, Ibu Laflem & more. Filmed and edited by Valentin Ferreira & Augustin Giovannoni.
What a time to be young, on a board and in Paris! To be honest, we did not know much about Elliot Bonnabel but starting now we are taking an interest!
Grey is killing it with the output recently! From Pastel to this video a lot of great skating is gracing the (web) pages of the UK mag.
This one features the likes of Marca Barbier, Casper Brooker, Kyron Davis, Korahn Gayle, Chris Jones, Kanya Spani and Kyle Wilson.
Korahn is definitely the standout for both skating and lifestyle reasons, to find out the details press play.
Probably the most motivated filmer, Augustin Giovannoni, is back with another one. As enthusiastic as he is, you’ve probably seen most of this footage on his Instagram already, but who cares. Keep ’em coming, Noni!
After Berlin, Paris was the next station for the Nozbone Benchmark contest that had actually its first Berlin event this year. So, the contest went back home to celebrate the 10th year of the event. As always, the vibe in Paris was really good and even some Berlin locals made it on the podium.
Last week we celebrated the start of the 10-year anniversary of Nozbone’s Benchmark contest. Starting in Berlin and concluding last Sunday in Paris. And a sun-filled day it was. It felt like spring had hit us again for a day, which turned the day into somewhat of a festival.
With the mood set, let’s get into the skating. It was culminating in some amazing skating by people like John Purcell, Hugo Corbin, Giorgi Armani, Farid Ulrich and Nozbone’s own Marc-A Barbier who, in the end, took home the win.
We think Nike SB, Civilist, Nozbone and À Propos magazine did a great job this year and we hope to be back next year.
We are proud to host the probably last skate event for summer 2017. The Benchmark Contest takes their format to Berlin for the very first time and here is all the information you need:
“For its tenth year, the Nozbone Benchmark Contest presented by Nike Skateboarding goes to Berlin on September 16th to meet Civilist before heading back to Paris on the 24th.
Two stages for this international edition which rules remain the same since 2008: doing a line of tricks on benches and the different obstacles built specially for the event, inspired by the artistic style born in the early days of the 20th century in Berlin: the Bauhaus.
Winner of the Berlin contest at ‘Spot der Visionäre’ will share a total prize purse of € 1.500 and will be flown out the OG Paris event.”
Marca Barbier, Hugo Corbin, Giorgi Armani, Sami Harithi & Farid Ulrich are all meeting at the intersection, where it seems that Paris abruptly becomes Berlin.
For its tenth year, the Nozbone Skateshop Benchmark Contest presented by Nike Skateboarding goes to Berlin on September 16th to meet Civilist before heading back to Paris on the 24th. We are glad to invite you all!
