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.
Featuring Rémy Taveira, Felipe Bartolome, Oscar Candon, Joseph Biais, Roger Gonzalez, Mickaël Germond, Alastair Pathé, Charles Giron, Edouard Depaz, Denis Lynn, Morgan Katomba, Lilian Fev, Roland Hoogwater, Danny Sommerfeld, Martino Cattaneo, Guillaume Colucci, Masaki Ui, Tom O’Reilly, Igor Fardin, Casey Brown, and Conor Charleson.
Special greetings go out to you Romain & Edouard. Hope to see you guys soon. Yours, Placemagpaule.
People who know me are probably aware of the fact that visiting Paris for the first time last year changed quite a lot for me. Besides my growing excitement for the French language, music and architecture, I furthermore figured out that there is also a kind of French way to skate. So Romain Batard also became one of my favorite film makers and since Giddy #1 was already filled with tons of good footage, I knew what to expect for #2 right before I hit the play button.
Featuring Hugo Maillard, Joffrey Morel, Steve Malet, Vivien Feil, Pierre Subra, Hugo Corbin, Etienne Chatelain, Louis Perruchaud, Alban Ma Tri, Jérémy Garcia, Thibault Parcheminer, Charles Giron, Antoine Ternon, Julien Ducas, Louis Deschamps, Clément Harpillard, Vincent Houget and Benoit Leray.
