What a year it’s been.
It’s quite surreal just how much happens over 12 months.
In celebration we’re counting down key moments from this year including a host of daily behind the scenes features, exclusively on our VERO page.
Coming in at number 10 is SERENE, our short feature on Bordeaux born, Parisian based skateboarder Edouard Depaz. It seems so long ago now but having tried to lock in Edouard at the back end of 2018, conflicting schedules pushed us back to February this year.
If you’ve ever met Edouard, you’ll know he’s a humble dude both on and off the board and in recent years, he’s built himself a tidy profile in the European scene. In fact it seems not a month goes by without seeing some new footage, whether it be a Levi’s Berlin mission, the latest Octagon clip or building a DIY spot in Bordeaux with the Rave Skateboards guys.
Having crossed paths frequently over the years we always spoke about filming a clip of sorts; whether it be an insight into his hometown of Bordeaux, or a weekend of street missions in Paris where he currently resides. In the end we did both, mainly due to our Bordeaux catch up being rained out and the fact that we love an excuse to skate the French capital.
The end result is ‘SERENE’, a collaboration with Levi’s Skateboarding offering a raw insight into Edouard’s daily vibes and a reflection on the cities that shaped his skateboarding.
