Big Smoke


I typically think of Big Smoke as a nickname for London but some googling revealed that many cities including Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney have all had that nickname as well. So think Australia and California montage is called Big Smoke and includes a who's who of Australian skateboarding from Shane O'neill and Tommy Fynn to Josh Pall and one of my favorite photogs, Jake Darwen.

Full cast is: Tommy Fynn, Jack Crook, James James, Andrew Brophy, Brendan Gardoll, Johnny Tang, Chase Jaeger, Adam Davies, Bryce Golder, Josh Pall, Nathan Jackson, Adam Moss, Paul Battlay, Elijah Robertson, Mitch Morrison, Jake Hayes, Beau Reid, Sam Atkins, Quayde Baker, Matthew Reilly, Corey Leso, Phil Marshall, Dean Palmer, Shane O'neill, Jake Darwen, and Alex Lawton.

CHURB


Trendy skating from Bordeaux. CHURB is the latest offering from filmer Romain Batard featuring: Axel Thomas, Hugo Brillet, Armand Vaucher, Julian Thomas, Valentin Pasquet, Tom Poisson, and Ando Andony.

2017 Sosh Highlight


Competition is a good excuse to get people together and motivate them to do their best. Sosh Highlight is a contest requiring riders and filmers to make a video with just a smartphone. Creativity and the streets are key. Nassim Guammaz took top honors for getting buck and having a clean edit. You can see all the edits here along with some photos and more info in French. I recommend Victor Pellegrin's 3rd place entry which is probably funny if you know French but you can kinda catch on to it through the visuals. Oscar Candon took 4th with some solid skating and some really well thought out editing and effects. Coming in 6th was Chris Pfanner whose skating is undeniable but the final product lacked the polish of some fo the others. Igor Fardin's 7th place video is an excellent comment on trends and an impressive feat of skating, doing the same tricks twice.

Perfume


It is rare that I sit through an entire full length video but Sevenmad's Perfume held my attention for the full 30 minutes. A host of Madrid spot porn, torn apart by guys like Felipe Bartolome and Juan Virues and pieced together with a strong aesthetic by Roger Gonzalez. Perfume is well worth watching. Via: Kingpin.
