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.
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!
Gangs signs, checks, fist pumps, devil horns and much more in this amazing Giddy with a strong concept that managed to consistently surprise us!
In our opinion, there is four type of skaters, the alcohol-free one, the beer kind, the cocktail sort and the wine connoisseur.
Travelling all the way to Italy to see the process of wine making and taste the juice almost directly from the land.
Davide Biondani summed up the trip the best “Not bad skating after 8 or 9 glasses of red wine in the morning”
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.
