Bowlarama Getxo - Skate Rules


It has been a long time since Europe has had such a rad skateboard event like this one. Hostilities took place in Spain, close to Bilbao, at the famous "la Kantera" Skatepark and it was all about bowl-riding. 

The bowl is deep, rad and not easy to skate for a common skater.
But put the best local in it with some skate legends as Steve Alba, Pat N'goho or Sergie Ventura and the best former skaters such as Raven Tershy, Grant Taylor or Pedro Barros and you will see how simple it can be. It is all about commitment, body placement, line and self-confidence. Easy to watch, not easy to go in and rip it as they did...






Brazilian Felipe Foguinho performs throughout the week-end combining huge ollies and grinds.




This is not NAPOLEON DYNAMITE but Sky Siljeg (US) who literally burnt the whole pool coping with single line. One of the best skaters to watch in the bowl.


Pedro Barros, barely nineteen, wins again with class, speed and fluency. He did nearly everything in the bowl from 540 to huge nosebone to switch grind and so many stuff on the edge. Here was during the warm-up, while the bowl wasn't painted yet.

Mystic Braves - Desert Island


Saint Laurent - Spring Summer 2014

It's been a while that we didn't have any good feelings with the fashion industry, but with his latest show, Hedi Slimane gave us what we where expected since a long time. A collection that is completely out of time, out of trends, inspired by the end of the 60's era and the beginning of the hippie style. We've seen on the catwalk, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Neil Young and many others influencers from this era. Of course you can find anything from this show in vintage stores, but the looks are great and everything sounds real. The music was performed by the psychedelcic band from LA, Mystic Braves.

A Skate Ballade in Paris with Brenn & César

Do you speak no leash?


You just can't if : 
- You are a bad swimmer
- It is crowded
- It is not safe to go back to the shore
- ... 
Leash is not dead.

Behind the Wheels and Waves 2014 - Biarritz


We didn't see much about the Weels and Waves 2014  but had the luck to hook up with John Eldridge and friends. John runs CMBL which produces custom built motorcycles and surfboards out of UK. So he just came to have a look at the event and won incidentally the thirsty fins surf contest. 

Catching up with them three days before the event we found an uncrowded surf spot (42, rue des Lombards) and had so much fun in this classic beach break. It was perfect for testing John's boards. It was predictable, they are mental.

We met them during the famous unfamous Hip Wiggler Invitationnal in Sennen - UK, where we were really well welcomed. It was an unstudied return : good vibes, french food and happy times. 
Far from the event and just between us, we enjoyed pristine moments.

Two sides of the same coins

We just received this in our mail box from our friends in the north, Oh Dawn :

They just released a new edit, with two rolls of 8mm film shot with six months apart. 
The principle was to shot one film about a summer evening, making an Oh Dawn wood signs outside their workshop in Copenhagen. And another one for some january action from Thé Kattegat, left hand point in the south of Sweden.

Two rolls, two seasons, two aspects of the OH DAWN sphere - Two sides of the same coin!

Happy When It Rains

It was supposed to be a break from the cold and the dark of Paris life but the weather in the south of France turned into a massive storm. 
Some can be disapointed but some others take those storms as an occasion to get into creativity. That's how we passed those two days of rain, wind and massive waves. Like the Jesus and Mary Chain said, we were "happy when it rains".

Rain Helps, 
For a moment you didn't decide 
Frustration gives you luck 
To go out or somewhere else 
Find the Rythmique Beauté
