The Converse CONS team went to Brasil and came back with some hectic maneuvers caught, cut and edited by our good friend James Cruickshank.

Feat.:  Aaron Herrington, Brian Delatorre, Mike Anderson & more.

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.

With all the CPH coverage dropping we present to you one last recap to close it off and that is the PLACEMAGPAULE photo recap.

Contrary to last year almost the whole PLACE staff traveled to arguably the best city in the world. But even though we were all in the same city, festival rules applied, which meant that within moments we lost each other and started doing our own thing. We all ended up at different events and safe for a few moments only saw each other at the plethora of parties that the CPH Open is host to.

It seemed everybody had a great time at every single event but our highlight was definitely the Levi’s event which looked rained out at first but ended up saving our lives by offering us a boat ride, good food, cold drinks and a very hot but healthy sauna experience!

We wish we could say “See you next year!” but the organizers felt that it was time for a break. So we will end it by saying, enjoy Paule’s photo recap and see you at the next Copenhagen Open

We were a little hesitant at first but this sauna van boosted morale to unprecedented levels, from now on we would like to see this van at every contest.

Our friends over at Grey Magazine ventured out to Marseille and shot a video and a special magazine over in the French harbor town. It features some of our favorites like Doudou and Mr. Tognelli the latter found a once in a lifetime type of spot to do a trick almost every skater would like to do at least once. Check out the video and go out and skate.

Featuring Mike Arnold, Matlok Bennett-Jones Edouard Depaz, Sylvain Tognelli and Juan Virues.

Berlin is a tough place especially in the winter time. However, Converse Cons riders Matlok Bennett-Jones and Harry Lintell were fighting the cold and skated Germany’s snowy capital for two days in January. The whole thing was filmed and edited by James Cruickshank.
