Rmell for ANYWAYS

Earlier this year,  in NYC , I was lucky to spend a rainy morning with Rmell. Was not the best timing for skateboarding, but at least I got the opportunity to test the new Brand of my friend Olivier : ANYWAYS.

ANYWAYS offers a new life to vintage pieces by reworking cut, stitching and details using durable materials with prints made directly in PARIS and guess what : It's available only on INSTAGRAM

L.A. with Ben Nordberg.

 

In a subculture where everybody claim freedom, it’s funny to see how you easely hated, just because your different. Ben is one of them ; Hated, and different. And that’s mainly why I love him, and I asked him to spend a day with me, cruising around L.A. discovering his new playground since he left england.
And what I discovered with him, it’s that sometimes been hated by the crowd, is the only true meaning of being different & creative.
( sorry for my french )

From russia with love.

Well, let's start with a lie.This portfolio of Sasha Golyanova was not shot in Russia, but in Bali, Indonesia. In my defense, the subject here Nikita Avdeev ( & the photographer ) is from Russia and it's enough to justify the title.

Let’s start again…Nikita, is a young prodigy supported by Anker company, the first surf related brand from Russia. So, you see? the title says everything. Need to say more ?

 

Curated : Lost in Tokyo by Lucas Werner

If I had to hate someone for an unfair reason, it would be Lucas Werner for sure. At just 19 years old, he is everything I love about skateboarding, art and photography : A mix between innocence and arrogance. Far away from the hype, and so close to the soul.

Here Lucas shares with us some captured moments from his latest trip to Japan with a friend of his, and the result is... unfair. enjoy.

Keep summer Alive - with the RVCA Womens

Sometimes early morning doesn’t look the same. Every stars are perfectly align, and the sun is ready to rise. It was one of this morning, when I was lucky to share the first light with the RVCA women team - Jess Bouvier,  Margaux Arramon-Tucoo and Emilie Libier .

It was only few waves, only few hours, but sometimes it's enough to keep the summer alive.

DESIERTO

"The desert is our troubled state. It is the dwelling place of our demons. This is a land of illusions and thin air, the vision is so cleared at times that the truth itself is deceptive." —John C. Van Dyke, The Desert, 1901

Please meet , Marcus Paladino

"I grew up on Vancouver Island (Canada) and now live on its western shores in Tofino. I admire the power of the area and the effect it has on the people who call this place home. I, however, am not quite ready to do the same. I still love to travel and experience beauty in all its worldly forms. That’s probably why I’m not comfortable labelling myself. I take photos of surfing, but I’m not just a surf photographer. I draw inspiration from other fields into my work in the hope of it not becoming labelled. Whether it’s people, places or passions, I want simple descriptions like “surf photo” or “nature shot” to fall short. I think that’s when my work becomes art."

A Different perspective / Montpellier by Friedjof Feye

"I am Friedjof, 29, skateboarding photographer living in Hanover, Germany.
Skateboarding, photography and travelling are playing a prominent role in my life.
All these things clear the way for my daily routine and create space for creativity.
Through photography I am able to communicate without actually talking which I personally really like.
Enough said. Let the photos speak for themselves."

Andy Criere - Art is Timeless

Art is blue. That passion flowing among the waves. Equilibrium. Harmony. A break from the routine. You, on your own. Nature’s fury maintains its infinite beauty. A feeling that is manifested in aesthetic and attractive forms. A continuous pursuit for beauty. Contemplation, the pleasure of a spirit that penetrates in Nature. A way to transmit emotion; a language. A way of life. Everything goes, changes and remains. Art is timeless. Art is Timeless es un corto sobre el surfista Andy Criere y un resumen de algunas de las olas del 2016. Art is Timeless is a short film about surfer Andy Criere and a summary of some of the waves of 2016. www.instagram.com/acriere www.instagram.com/adrianrodd
