Macba Big Low To High, Barcelona

Macba saw a few changes happening almost 10 years ago. The 4 blocks became 3 blocks, and this low to high ledge became the same low to high ledge but longer to grind because of the new stairs! Quite a lot of tricks were landed since then!

PRO BONO PROMO: Helas Sporting Club

Helas Polo Club Lucas Puig 1Helas Polo Club Lucas Puig

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you’ve probably heard of Lucas Puig’s Helas Caps brand. Aside from bringing a totally new aesthetic to the skate hat game (with a clever play on the Polo aesthetic), Helas has been nothing short of an endless fountain of cream soda amazing skate edits. Whether it’s an edit of iPhone clips or VX throwaways, you can bet that every one of their shorts are top notch. The latest Helas Sporting Club edit is again no different, bringing the heat with four and a half minutes of goodness and is filmed primarily around Barcy with a couple of clips from Shanghai. Featuring Lucas Puig, Luypa Sin, Jesus Fernandez, Javier Sarmiento, Thierry Gormit, Marek Zaprazny, Roman Lisivka, Pedro Attenborough, Jose Vivero Diaz, JB Gillet, Max Geronzi, Charles Collet, Stephen Khou, Alex Maison, Kristian Krasimirov, JP Villa and Karl Salah.

Helas Polo Club Luy Pa SinDefinitely super psyched to see footage of Luy Pa Sin ripping, and his pop shove front crook at Plaza Universitat is worth a watch alone. Jesus Fernandez really lights up Sants with a fakie flip crooks, fakie pop shove switch 5-0 180 out followed up with a back 3 down the curb. Now say that again really quick. And if you blink you might miss Javier Sarmiento’s cameo at Sants as well!

We all know that Marek Zaprazny is a beast on the board, and his kickflip over a Jersey barrier off flat followed by a high speed back tail is more than enough of a reminder of that fact.

This whole edit is chock full of amazing skating and definitely proof that in this age of over saturated skateboard media content, sometimes less is more. And of course Lucas closes the video out with a banger! Peep the edit and get hyped already! – HK

Bercy, Paris

Last update:

You might have heard of the name “Bercy” being thrown around as one of those legendary European spots on the list of every visiting American pro, or even remember Andrew Reynold’s  superhuman frontside flip down the Bercy 4 block (and his even more ridiculous backside heel down the 5). Bercy has seen some very significant moments in skateboarding history and deserves its place in skateboarding’s rich cultural history. Historically, Bercy is primarily a wine warehousing neighborhood.

In 1982, the City launched a vast program to revitalize the east of Paris, starting with the official opening in early 1984 of the Bercy Arena (originally known as ‘Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy’), which is primarily an indoor sports arena and concert hall. But as skateboarders, it’s this aspect of Bercy’s architecture that specifically interests us.

Palais_Omnisports_de_Paris-Bercy

The Arena itself is shaped like a pyramid with its walls covered with grass. Remember when Ali, Bastien and Arto butt slid down the grass wall in the Flip ‘Sorry’ intro (see 1:12 in the link below).

This feature offered the perfect playground for the inner street skater inside each of us. I went to Bercy the first time I went skating in Paris, and I was hyped! Although there were a lot of people, due to the size of the place you were still able to enjoy it and also have enough space to try stuff.

While the Bercy ledges are world famous and frankly pretty insane, it was really the blocks (4 then 5) that attracted  pros from all around the world.

Unfortunately, the Bercy complex is now truly part of skateboarding’s history books in a very literal sense because the area is being redeveloped but should reopen at the end of the year. Treasure every spot now, as you’ll never know when they will become a ghost of skateboarding’s seasons past!

Le Dome, Palais de Tokyo, Paris

Last update:

Le Dome is the name that Paris skaters gave to the spot in front of Le Palais de Tokyo, a modern and contemporary art museum. Calling this spot an icon of the Paris street skating scene is probably a gross understatement. Which is why we decided to make this little edit featuring Jereme Rogers, Vincent Bressol, Arto Saari, Eric Koston, Rick McCrank, Chris Cole, Colt Cannon, Alex Carolino, Rodrigo Teixeira, Thibaud Fradin, Flo Marfaing, Max Geronzi and Mark Suciu.

When you think of Le Dome what probably comes to mind is the 3-flat-3 double set and the pairs of huge hubbas down the stairs. But let’s also not forget that since marble has the sweetest pop, the marble ground there makes the spot also really epic for flatground. This spot became a must visit spot for visiting pros in the late 90s and early 2000s, and some really heavy tricks went down there. When you visit the spot, the sheer size of the hubba alone is certain to intimidate anyone attempting anything here, so it was so crazy to see Flo actually put down two back-to-back tricks(a backside noseslide followed by a front tail) as part of a line on both hubbas and the 3-flat-3. Flo shut down the spot for sure!!! Eric Koston’s backside 5-0(in those eS Koston 3s no less!) was straight up gnarly!! Another classic memory was from the Transworld Videoradio era, with Chad Muska hyping the crowd up as Chris Cole skated the hubba. Remember Brian Anderson’s two trick line here in Yeah Right? That was one stylish bigflip.

(hmm it’s also interesting to note that one of the best street spots in Paris is in front of a contemporary art museum like in Barcelona w/ the MACBA)

es-mccrank-tsm-jan10I first went to Le Dome when I was 13 years old. To get hyped before each session, I would watch the eS Menikmati video, and this played a huge part in building my memories of this spot and those sessions. Back then you would often meet the world’s best pros there; and I met Bastien Salabanzi there quite a few times too.

Today, the spot is in pretty bad shape given the march of time. But it’s still always a great spot to start a session because you’ll always find someone to skate with down there and it remains a go to meet up spot.

eS Footwear used to be super active at this spot too, and even held the french final of their eS game of skate here in 2009.

Peep our edit of some the heaviest tricks at Le Dome and recognize the amazing progression that has gone down at this spot.
