Our Finnish connection, Eniz Fazliov enjoying the Visions outdoor space… …With our Aussie connection Dustin. The Visions blimp flew high and mighty all day above the festival. Our contest winners Matt Rutherford and Joe Seager sank a few beers with Dustin and lurked heavily with us throughout the festival. Good times! Lois Pendlebury and Harry Lintell.

Volcom Bastille Days Opening
Cliquez ici pour la version Française On Wednesday July 1st, Volcom opened its skate obstacle, which will remain all summer long on the Esplanade du Port de l’Arsenal, Place de La Bastille in Paris. The afternoon started with the official opening by the Paris city council, with the presence of three Mayors of the surrounding districts, and then the spot got invaded by skateboarders, never minding the high temperatures (Europe is sweating under a record heat wave). Tons of goodies were given away at our DIY stations (tee shirt screening, hat customising and button making…) and in no time, everyone was hyped to watch the action unfold. Dustin Dollin, David Gonzalez, Eniz Fazliov, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Vincent Coupeau and Romain Covolan from the Volcom skate team put down a demo matching the heat! At the end of the demo the list of ABD’s of the spot got quite filled up with notably a switch fs 360 and a switch flip from Axel over the trash bin, some trademark crails from David, an alley oop fs 270 heelflip from Eniz and a a double flip by Victor… Right after this some of Paris big dogs entered into the mix during a “Trick 4 Trick” session organised by Electric, where the skaters had to land the same tricks that Electric team skaters David Gonzalez, Axel Cruysberghs and Sam Partaix were doing for cash. The day ended with music and drinks, but unfortunately without the planned live concert due to some tech problems, and the skateboarders took over the spot for a first of a long series of evening sessions. A big thank you to the city council of Paris for bringing this to skateboarding in Paris, Sterling Projects for such a rad design and finishing details, to Cosanostra skatepark, to Carlsberg for the refreshments, Snowbeach, Urban Surfers, Citadium, Hawaii Surf, Guillaume Perimony for the clip and Jelle Keppens for the photos. See you on Sunday July12th, starting at 19h for an instalment of photos from De Paris yearbook, music, refreshments and the screening of the video “Deuxième Vague”-  Entry is free.

L’après-midi commença par l’ouverture officielle par la Mairie de Paris, avec la présence des trois maires des arrondissements voisins. Ensuite le spot a été pris d’assaut par tous les skateboarders malgré la temperature caniculaire. Des tonnes de goodies ont été donnés suite à des sessions Do It Yourself (impression de tee shirts, customisation de casquettes, fabrication de badges…), et peu après, le public a profité d’une demo de skate du team Volcom avec Dustin Dollin, David Gonzalez, Eniz Fazliov, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Vincent Coupeau et Romain Covolan qui ont tout donné. A la fin de la démo, la liste des ABD du spot fut plutôt bien remplie, avec notamment un switch fs 360 et un switch flip d’Axel au dessus de la poubelle, des crails magnifiques de David, un alley oop fs 270 heelflip d’Eniz ou encore un double flip de Victor… Juste après ça, quelques uns des meilleurs skaters de Paris entrèrent en jeu pour une session “Trick 4 Trick” organisée par Electric, durant laquelle les skateurs devaient replaquer les mêmes figures que les membres du team Electric David Gonzalez, Axel Cruysberghs et Sam Partaix avec 500€ en cash à la clé. La journée s’est terminée en musique et avec quelques boissons fraiches, malheureusement sans le concert qui était prévu, en raison de quelques problèmes techniques. Les skateurs ont pris possession du spot pour une première session nocturne en présence de presque tout le gratin de la scène skate Parisienne. Un énorme merci à la mairie de Paris pour avoir permis l’installation de cette structure, Sterling Projects pour un tel design et de supers finitions, à Cosanostra skatepark, à Carlsberg pour les rafraichissements, à Snowbeach, à Urban Surfers, à Citadium, à Hawaii Surf, à Guillaume Perimony pour le clip vidéo et à Jelle Keppens pour les photos. On espère vous retrouver le dimanche 12 juillet à partir de 19h pour une exposition photos du yearbook De Paris, de la musique, des rafraichissements et la diffusion en plein air de la vidéo Deuxième Vague.
