We are not going to lie. Standing in line at the yesterday’s opening event for the new Berlin Supreme store was an absolute nightmare and it felt uncomfortable, but we don’t want to complain all too much. The good thing about it was that we have watched William Strobeck’s “MIND GOBLIN” video 11 and 1/2 times before we could enter the location, just to get sent out again by security 15 minutes later.
All jokes aside, the team went in and it is always good to see new people skating the more known spots in Berlin. Also we would like to say that we are proud of our good friends Augustin Giovannoni & Steffen Grap who showed them around town and made them look extra good. Tyshawn Jones tricks up the stairs at Frankfurter Tor are not human.
Much success to the Berlin staff member Johannes Schirrmeister, Jun Kummer, Yannick Zhou and Anton Jäger, who will be taking care of you in the store on Torstraße 74.
Our frenchman Augustin Giovannoni aka. Nnoni is back with a new project and it’s his best work so far. Make yourself comfortable and watch Oscar Candon, Marca Barbier, Paul Grund, Tom O’reilly & a lot more.
When I got invited to go on this trip I can’t tell you how excited I was. It was a chance to go and meet some of skateboarding’s new faces. Not random new faces but people that are part of an important wave in our culture. These people have names, names like Savannah Stacey Keenan, Lacey Baker, Josie Millard, Charlotte Hym and Sarah Meurle, the latter I was less excited to meet because I knew her.
God! All of them are probably cringing while reading this, I know I am while writing it. But they are all worthy of praise because they are doing something important. I saw Josie struggle a bit when we were at the bar and some people came up and presented her with a fresh possibly alcohol infused dose of praise. Not because she wasn’t thankful but because it can be shocking to the person that is being praised to see the people they influence. Her voice was saying “Thank you, I really appreciate it” and her eyes were saying “Should we go back and meet up with the others?”.
I was hyped because the hype is real and all of these girls are really cool human beings.
Charlotte is working on her Ph.D., she is studying the effects of the mother’s voice on newly born babies. Savannah is into geography and fashion, Josie besides riding on the board owns a seriously beautiful motorbike and ever since this trip she is obsessed with doing long handstands. Sarah is studying fine art in Sweden, during this trip, she told me she used to be a Christmas tree salesperson in Canada “The best “real” job I’ve ever had”. Finally, Lacey Baker is always painting, drawing and trying to have Gaga moments, which basically means listening to Lady Gaga together and singing along. What more could you wish for?
I don’t know, do you? There is more and if you want to delve deeper grab a copy of our Holiday issue at your local shop. Right now we are pleased to show you what went down on this trip to Paris. Enjoy!
The year is almost over and we are looking back to one hell of a crazy year. Talking about crazy we have to mention our last summer’s French Intern Augustin Giovannoni who just dropped is 2017 mixtape featuring Franz Grimm, Joffrey Morel, Auguste Bouznad, Juan Saavedra, Yann Garin & us. Loye you, Noni <3.
Probably the most motivated filmer, Augustin Giovannoni, is back with another one. As enthusiastic as he is, you’ve probably seen most of this footage on his Instagram already, but who cares. Keep ’em coming, Noni!
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.
Augustin Giovannons “A.E.I.U.O” just came out with a second part and it shows almost a full part of our columnist Franz Grimm and a lot of good footage from a lot of our good friends. Arguably Augustin’s best work, so far! Berlin, Paris, Copenhagen.
