Carhartt WIP’s “INSIDE OUT” Video
Carhartt WIP just came out with a brilliant full lenght video titled “INSIDE OUT”. We went to see it on the Berlin premiere and it was even better to watch this film by Romain Batard and Joaquim Bayle on the big screen. It’s a bit early to say but this might be one of the best videos of 2022. Congratulations to everyone involved!
Watch Felipe Bartolomé, Ebou Sanyang, Tolia Titaev, Sylvain Tognelli, Joseph Biais, Max Palmer, Rémy Taveira and many more give their best.

ROMAIN BATARD – GIDDY #8
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!
Polar Skate Co – We Blew It At Some Point

Riding Modern Art – “Paving Space”
The “Paving Space” sculpture set is made by the French Raphaël Zarka, who also really wanted his pieces to be used with skateboards. Lucky enough there were enough willing skaters coming from Paris to try out the very interesting shapes of the objects standing in BPS22 Charleroi, Belgium.
Filmed by Romain Batard and feat.: Alexis Jamet, Hugo Corbin, Joseph Biais, Roman Gonzalez, Yann Garin, Pierre Subra and Jimmy Cholley.
Polar Skate Co. “LA Days”

Featuring: Jonas Skröder, Dane Brady, Pontus Alv, Paul Grund, Roman Gonzalez, David Stenstrom and Jerome Campbell.

Oski Rozenberg x Nike SB – Elite Squad
Let’s start at the beginning Oski is one of the most exciting skaters of our time, in fact, he is so nice to watch that the Cardiel reference, in the beginning, might even be justified.
Another thing that we really liked is that it is not just Oski you get his friends people like Hjalte Halberg, Alex Olson, Cyrus Bennett, Roman Gonzalez and more. Another good thing is that Nike gave a colorway to a skater that actually likes to skate the shoe (they have been kind of good at that.) which doesn’t seem to always be the case. Now go sit down and watch this part because it is good!
Blobys – Trunki
A new one by the Blobys. Watch Hadrien Buhannic’s new edit full of Bloby magic below. Featuring Kevin Rodrigues, Greg Cuadrado, Hjalte Halberg, Vincent Touzery, Paul Grund, Gauthier Rouger, Oscar Candon, Roman Gonzalez and William Moneris.
Vincent Touzery – Spirit Quest
A must watch even if you are not into the style of editing or music, simply because Vincent Touzery is one of the more interesting skaters to watch. Don’t hesitate to enter the Colin Read’s jungle, open your mind and come out with some new perspectives on the documentation and representation of skateboarding.
Augustin Giovannoni – Blue-Eyed Boy
Augustin Giovannoni back at it again with a new clip. Featuring some good skating by Pierre Subra, Franz Grimm, Joffrey Morel, Yoan Taillandier and more. What a great looking city Paris is.

I Like It Here Inside My Mind – Don’t Wake Me Up This Time
When I was younger I just collected every skate video I could get ahold on and stored it in my DVD shelf. But over time, I got more selective about which ones I really needed to buy a copy of. There have been only a handful videos during this year that expanded my collection. Pontus Alv’s latest masterpiece is one of them. Already the title makes you aware of the fact, that this video is much more than just a couple of skateboard tricks. This film takes you on a journey in a sort of dream-like nostalgic setting and, in doing so, a unique feeling is created.
“Everything is possible when we dream. Why can’t we sleep forever?”
