Romain Batard made it onto what we consider one of skateboarding best platform with his remix of the Carhartt WIP socials videos. Chapeau to all parties involved.
The first double-digit “drift” leaves nothing to be desired, great work by all the “mons” and sublime editing by Jacob Elliot Harris.
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.
Another one by Mr. Harris this one makes us feel bad about not driving to Vegas when we were in Los Angeles.
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.

Atlantic Drift went Pacific. Welcome to San Francisco the gentrification capital in the world Another amazing edit by Jacob Elliot Harris. If skateboarding would be an IQ test then Sylvain Tognelli would be the genius.
Feat.: Remy Taveira, Kyron Davis, Tom Knox, Chris Jones, Nick Jensen, Casper Brooker and everyone’s new favorite Mike Arnold.
It seems like Jake Harris’ work is becoming more surreal bit by bit, from collageing faces onto people in the latest Atlantic Drift to some sound engineering in this Palestine video.
Some of these frames have even graced the pages of our Time Issue and through this video, they have been put back in motion. Enjoy!
The new Nozbone Skateshop shop video just came out. Not really a surprise because we actually went to the premiere last Saturday in Paris but, as always, it is suprisingly good. Filmed and edited by Ludovic Azémar and featuring: Lisa Jacob, Oscar Candon,, Rémy Taveira, Joseph Biais, Samuel Partaix, Akim Chérif, Jimmy Cholley, Pierre Subra, Marc-Alexandre Barbier, Hugo Corbin, Sylvain Tognelli, Yann Garin, Santiago Sasson, Mustapha Bennacer, Bertrand Soubrier, Franck Barattiero, Augustin Giovannoni and more.
The Atlantic Drifters dive into the realm of the hippy jump with some serious contortionist manoeuvres that shouldn’t seem plausible, or even thinkable. With the most casual destruction of up, down and around. This is a game changer.
Jacob Harris is back again and for number four he went across the pond and into the center of the world…New York!
Tom Knox, Casper Brooker, Sylvain Tognelli, Mike Arnold, Remy Taveira, Jordan Trahan and more.
Each episode of this series by Jacob Harris is a cinematographic masterpiece on its own. The level of filming/editing combined with the level of skating is just too damn high. For this episode of Atlantic Drift, the crew went to the capital of France, Paris.
Featuring Tom Knox, Nick Jensen, Remy Taveira, Sylvain Tognelli, Casper Brooker, Chris Jones and Mike Arnold.
An interesting approach with a refreshing visual result, though at times also hectic to watch! But doing something new is never easy and since Isle has such a strong connection to art let me say this, good art is meant to force you to choose, choose to like it, accept it or, hate it but you have to choose.

Our friends over at Grey Magazine ventured out to Marseille and shot a video and a special magazine over in the French harbor town. It features some of our favorites like Doudou and Mr. Tognelli the latter found a once in a lifetime type of spot to do a trick almost every skater would like to do at least once. Check out the video and go out and skate.
Featuring Mike Arnold, Matlok Bennett-Jones Edouard Depaz, Sylvain Tognelli and Juan Virues.
I guess you won’t see those guys skating St Paul’s in London anytime soon. Another masterpiece by Jacob Harris.
Basically, this is little more than an ISLE and friends montage that Jacob Harris made for Thrasher. Jacob is one of the most interesting guys working in skateboard video making today. He doesn’t work that much with double screens and vhs type of work instead he relies a lot on music and the mixing of style and action and he really has perfect timing when it comes down to suspense and breaking the suspense. The music in this video gives off a thick atmosphere making it quite intense but balanced because of the aforementioned breaks. To be honest the way he presents to us is truly his own and that is what makes every video Jacob makes worth a watch.

Paving Space is a contemorary art project by Raphaël Zarka that takes advantage of the nature of skateboarding to function very well with geometrical figures. Inspired by mathematician Arthur Moritz Schoenflies’ three dimensional models, Raphaël Zarka built sculptures that consist of different geometrical components that enable to create innumerous compositions. However these sculptures can already be seen as art by themselves, Raphaël Zarka adds the motions of skateboarding to his geometrical structures, which, in turn, opens up a complete new field of compositions because every skateboarder skates a certain obstacle in an own way.
Featuring Sylvain Tognelli, Nick Jensen, Casper Brooker, Jan Kliewer, Joseph Biais, Rémy Taveira, Josh Pall, Chris Jones and Armand Vaucher.
Dusty roads and all sorts of faded colors. This film by Jacob Elliott Harris is a very delicate and nostalgically seeming travel journal of a skate trip to the beautiful country of Nicaragua. Starring Remy Taveira, Mike Arnold and Sylvain Tognelli.
Isle ventured out to visit the Bel Paese that is shaped like a shoe they came back with a lot of good footage.
Check out the article version of Isle’s trip over at A Brief Glance.
Over 10 years ago the Carhartt team ventured out to Mongolia the result was Mongolian Tires. In 2014 they ventured out again with a different crew but with the same interests and a similar outcome. A beautiful film accompanied by an original soundtrack. Once again Carhartt sets the tone when it comes to documenting skateboarding, cultures and landscapes.
The whole OUT OF STEPPE and Dirt Ollies project is presented in book form, it contains both the original film as well as the new project. Treat yourself and get into all that the Mongolian experience has to offer.
