Carhartt WIP is often one of the anchor points where art and skateboarding join together to form a synthesis. Both live together, working in unison.

We took a little excerpt from Carhartt themselves for those that want to delve deeper into what that all means:

“Carhartt WIP Skateboarding has collaborated with renowned international art institution Galleria Continua. The project is centered around a new, experimental skate space at the gallery’s location in Boissy-le-Châtel, an hour east of the French capital. The snake run was created by MBL architects and Bureau D. Apheceix, using a series of free-form, artisanal techniques that allows the structure to blend in with its surrounding landscape.

We can praise this series for the cool talking that Mark Gonzales does but this episode stands out for his skating as well.

This has probably been both his best footage recently and at the same time our favorite thing Torsten Frank has made recently as well.

Belgium is a small but great nation, there something is in the water there and we are not talking about piss, beer or grease from the many places where you can get great fries.

No…look at the talent ratio, Phil Zwijsen, Jonathan Thijs, Youness Amrani, Maité Steenhoudt, Geoffrey van Hove and arguably at the top Jarne.

He has come back from a lot and it is safe to say that it has made him better! This is his best part yet and we are happy that we are getting more in the future. But for now, CONGRATS Jarne & Guillaume on a great job done!

One of the most fun and exciting skaters to watch just put out her first video part. Maité Steenhoudt puts out her first body of work with some help from her friends.

We love it and can’t wait to see what the future hold for the next Belgian prodigy.

All systems go for this new Element video by the wonderful Guillaume Perimony.
