“Chris Jones sits down with the Ben Raemers Foundation for and talks about his own experiences with mental health and skateboarding.” Is the caption of a beautiful video piece by The Ben Raemers Foundation, showcasing Chris Jones’ story about mental health.
Chris Jones, Ville Wester, Kyle Wilson, Casper Brooker, Korahn Gayle went on a little escape to Milan and obviously hung out with the locals. Can’t get enough of Ville Wester!
A film by Will Miles.
The shoe looks good, the skating is dope go watch the new Isle X Nike SB edit now!
Grey Skate Mag has a very nice interview up with Chris Jones where he talks about his time in Berlin, his thoughts on being a pro-skater, the future, his community work & mental health.
It is a great read! So click this link and go read it!

Our friends over at Live Skateboard Media have a new part of the Polish masterpiece “Neverwhere” up now. Besides the Chilean Prince’s skateboard moves they also have a nice interview up with Kuba who is behind both the lens and the vision for “Neverwhere”
The naïve stuntboard crew presents us with a nice little reminder that there is, in fact, an almost limitless amount of things to skate in Berlin. So don’t be naïve and go out and look for yourself!
Skateboarding gets a lot of its powers from new emerging factions and youth energy, Vague Mag combines those two and puts out this killer Nike SB England tour video.
Chris Jones, Kyron Davis, Hugo Boserup, Casper Brooker, Eniz Fazilov, Mark Stern, Myles Shankie, Jak Pietryga and Scott Anderson.
Every skater has a happy place, a place where the tricks feel the best, the obstacles interest you and the vibe feel great.
Most of these happy places are skateparks, some are made by companies others by friends – TBS in Malmö comes to mind – for a lot of locals in Berlin MBU is that place.
Julian saw that, became a part of that scene and decided to document what was happening. Primarily for himself but also for us all to see, so that other people might get inspired to show “their” MBU.
Another one by Mr. Harris this one makes us feel bad about not driving to Vegas when we were in Los Angeles.
Grey is killing it with the output recently! From Pastel to this video a lot of great skating is gracing the (web) pages of the UK mag.
This one features the likes of Marca Barbier, Casper Brooker, Kyron Davis, Korahn Gayle, Chris Jones, Kanya Spani and Kyle Wilson.
Korahn is definitely the standout for both skating and lifestyle reasons, to find out the details press play.
It seems like Jake Harris’ work is becoming more surreal bit by bit, from collageing faces onto people in the latest Atlantic Drift to some sound engineering in this Palestine video.
Some of these frames have even graced the pages of our Time Issue and through this video, they have been put back in motion. Enjoy!
The Atlantic Drifters dive into the realm of the hippy jump with some serious contortionist manoeuvres that shouldn’t seem plausible, or even thinkable. With the most casual destruction of up, down and around. This is a game changer.
Each episode of this series by Jacob Harris is a cinematographic masterpiece on its own. The level of filming/editing combined with the level of skating is just too damn high. For this episode of Atlantic Drift, the crew went to the capital of France, Paris.
Featuring Tom Knox, Nick Jensen, Remy Taveira, Sylvain Tognelli, Casper Brooker, Chris Jones and Mike Arnold.
Basically, this is little more than an ISLE and friends montage that Jacob Harris made for Thrasher. Jacob is one of the most interesting guys working in skateboard video making today. He doesn’t work that much with double screens and vhs type of work instead he relies a lot on music and the mixing of style and action and he really has perfect timing when it comes down to suspense and breaking the suspense. The music in this video gives off a thick atmosphere making it quite intense but balanced because of the aforementioned breaks. To be honest the way he presents to us is truly his own and that is what makes every video Jacob makes worth a watch.
Featuring: Sylvain Tognelli, Nick Jensen, Remy Taveira, Mike Arnold, Tom Knox, Chris Jones and Casper Brooker
Paving Space is a contemorary art project by Raphaël Zarka that takes advantage of the nature of skateboarding to function very well with geometrical figures. Inspired by mathematician Arthur Moritz Schoenflies’ three dimensional models, Raphaël Zarka built sculptures that consist of different geometrical components that enable to create innumerous compositions. However these sculptures can already be seen as art by themselves, Raphaël Zarka adds the motions of skateboarding to his geometrical structures, which, in turn, opens up a complete new field of compositions because every skateboarder skates a certain obstacle in an own way.
Featuring Sylvain Tognelli, Nick Jensen, Casper Brooker, Jan Kliewer, Joseph Biais, Rémy Taveira, Josh Pall, Chris Jones and Armand Vaucher.
This video is about Korahn Gayle and Kyron Davis, the latter might be ending up on something new sooner rather than later.
Shortly after the last Hockey Promo, Grey Magazine releases a London clip series called “Blip”, which is an ongoing project of commissioned or collaborative clips by Dan Magee, which features, among others, Donovon Piscopo and John Fitzgerald. The first two clips look really nice and create a desire for more!
From England with love. Grey Magazine and Nike SB deliver this new film by Will Miles featuring Charlie Birch, Casper Brooker, Kyron Davis, Joe Gavin, Korahn Gayle, Chris Jones, Jak Pietryga, Mark Stern, Dan West, Kyle Wilson and many more!
