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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Meant for the gram but also on the regular web… these little edits show the quality of the team in bitesize portions.
Some beautiful work by the talented Roger Gonzalez for the always changing but never boring Carhartt WIP brand. Enjoy!
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!
As the drifter keep on drifting further away from the shores they started at, we ask ourselves where to next?
This most recent Hawaiian edit might suggest that Jacob Harris will start to steer the ship east. Now that could be interesting!
As trends progress, it seems that every brand thought to itself “Get the velcro strap!”, and they took that strap and put it on their one-star shoe. After that was done they wanted to show the world and thus, the second one-star world tour was a fact.
Juan Virues, Felipe Bartolome, Ryan Townley, Dane Barker, Shane Farber, Kaue Cossa, Remy Taveira, Max Taylor, Paul Grund and Bobby De Keyzer.
Gangs signs, checks, fist pumps, devil horns and much more in this amazing Giddy with a strong concept that managed to consistently surprise us!
Another one by Mr. Harris this one makes us feel bad about not driving to Vegas when we were in Los Angeles.
It is no secret that we really enjoy James Cruickshank’s lens work, so to see these new Converse x Grey Mag edits drop is a joyous occasion for all that love Sheffield’s finest. Obviously, the fact that he is working with skaters like Bobby De Keyzer, Jerome Campbell, Harry Lintell and Remy Tav doesn’t hurt either.
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.

Tolia’s PACCBET has teamed up with Carhartt to create a 12 piece capsule collection and basically skate the winter away. Turns out to be a very good looking line with mostly simple ideas put well together.
Filmed and edited by Roger Gonzalez and feat.: Felipe Bartolomé, Sasha Groshevoy, Jacob Sundell, Remy Taveira and, of course, Tolia Titaev himself.
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.
The Bröwse system is watching us, filming us, documenting our every move. Drones fly all around us but we never get to see what they see.
It seems that the system called Öctagon has unlimited access to all sorts of talent, as the drones fly we hear tunes made by legendary music producer Laurent Garnier. What will be next?
