As you might be able to tell from the cover (the man who’s about to chuck himself in the water is Gabriel Engelke), one of our main features this month is a Carhartt WIP X Antiz trip to the Alps. Organising a skate mission out there is already quite a strange idea in itself but what’s even weirder is that all of the photos in this article are the result of two very different photographers’ teamwork. Indeed each and every one of them Joel Tettamanti (a fine art landscape photographer) picked the angle and set up the tripod but Bertrand Trichet, the skate photographer, was the one to press the button and make sure it was shot at the right moment. It all sounds pretty mad but we are really happy with how they came out. Plus Sylvain Tognelli absolutely smashed it.
Keep your eyes peeled for the official video recap of this little expedition that should be dropping on our site at some point next week.
Talking of Sylvain, the Frenchmen also recently went on a Lakai trip to Sicily with Nick Jensen, Karsten Kleppan and Gauthier Rougier to officially welcome Mauro Caruso to the European team. Sam Ashley was out there with them and managed to get a banging twelve pager out of it.
The main interview slots went to Vans Europe’s British representative Kris Vile and OG Spanish legend Daniel Lebron, both of whom have full sections dropping on our website over the next few weeks.
We’ve also got a Pearls Of Wisdom with Geoff Rowley, an Effect with Helder Lima, a Madrid Scene article and tons of other stuff so make sure you get ourself a copy before they run out!
