Our good friend Augustin Giovannoni just released his new video and this time Tom O’reilly is the man with the most shine. We need to go back to Paris. Very good one, Augustin!

This video starts with the song: “A Chacun Son Probléme” by Amadou & Mariam, the title translates into “Everyone has their own problems”.

The reason why this makes so much sense is that this video was filmed in Paris’ 93rd district, a place that is known as one of the most dangerous places in Paris.

The project was created by Macéo Moreau & Malo Simonet two people who are from the area itself. And that really shows throughout the project, they skate everything and connect with the people which creates a semi-documentary type of feel which most skaters who search for spots can really relate to.

Another good feature of the project is that the architecture is diverse, it shows both the trash & the treasures that are hidden in these Parisian suburbs.

All in all, this first episode of the project makes us look forward to the second and we hope it features the same crew.

Featuring:

Marius Moreau, Antoine Volle, Victor Campillo, Simon Souchois, Kevin Ozcan, Abel Leblanc, Thibault Lenours, Macéo Moreau & Malo Simonet.

This year marks 10 years of Stefan’s shoe with Nike SB. As such we get multiple looks, we get Trust Fall, we get a talk in Paris and now we get a look at his creative side paired with some really good skateboard moves.

All things being as they may this is a really cool look behind the curtain and into what Stefan does on the daily.

Our recap of our time on the course of the Vans Park Series in Chelles is decidedly different from the ones we did in Montréal. We went from ESPN highlight shots to almost crawling inside Greyson Fletcher’s beard to look for crumbs and other things. If you loved the contest, saw the tricks on our socials this is the “through the rabbit hole” view you need to complete this Vans voyage voyage.

The annual Paris with the Pop squad is upon us once again but this time it seems they really went all out.

How does one define what one’s eyes see but cannot comprehend? That is the feeling we left with just moments after Pedro Barros finished his run.

Text by Roland Hoogwater.

The two days before, he was hardly even trying to practice, no 540 attempts, switch pushing through the bowl or even one attempt to bigspin-flip indy his way into the top spot. If you would have asked me what Pedro was working on I would have told you that he was perfecting his flat ground game and in particular his nollie flips.

But when the cameras turned on and just when Cory Juneau thought he had it in the bag, Mr. Barros stepped in, showed his cards and surprisingly it was a royal flush. Two more people took their runs afterwards but they won’t be remembered or even mentioned in the history books.

Every VPS event we go to has seen shocking moments, it is almost a tradition, one that Oskar “Oski” Rozenberg adheres to. Last year in Sweden, he, with one simple flick shuffled the entire board and claimed both the top spot, the money and the hearts of the people by clearing the box with a giant kickflip.

In true Swedish fashion about 30 minutes later he calmly climbed on his bike and cycled home with the rest of the Rozenberg family, he probably cooked dinner after and closed the day by watching some Netflix.

Both the 2017 and now defending ’18 champions seem to be aware and present when they need to be and just when the crowd has started to accept the reality that one person might win they manage to alter the course by simply grabbing the moment, the board and the crown.

A simple but special occurrence which makes the VPS worth watching until the very end… or until we do it all over again in August.

Special thanks go out to VANS for the support.

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.

Bloby’s Hadrien Buhannic just released a new stand alone project featuring a lot of well known faces. You don’t wanna miss that one!

A little while ago we went to Paris to talk to Stefan Janoski. We had a nice couple of days skating the Garage, enjoying the sun, watching videos and listening to Santiago Sasson’s band.

All the while Stefan was doing much of the same but he also went his own way, going to lectures, having lunch and spending some quality time with a clown!?

We asked Mr. Janoksi to carry a camera and shoot his Parisian endeavors for us and so the result is this, our first Stefan Janoski photo recap.

This photo was shot by that clown, who after shooting this, ran off with the camera. But we chased after him. Jessica and I split up circled around and cornered him off at the corner of the louvre pyramid. He pulled out a gun, but Jessica immediately kicked it out of his hand. He then pulled out a knife, but by that time Ryan Bobier had crept up from behind and gave hime a shaolin slumber pinch, that collapsed him to the ground, in what seemed like a peaceful relaxing snooze. The gathered crowd of tourists cheered, and whooped, because everyone hates clowns.
