For quite some time now people we’ve heard here and there that blading is dying, we hear that so much that great stories could possibly be forgotten… ESA’s (Evolution Street Attack) first edition was in 2002 and still well alive in 2017. Successive generations of Montpellierans have passed on the torch to keep this contest alive.
This year again the OGs where still here (you may have been introduced to Alban, Salamech, Namo, Bastien for a few years now) skating along some younger kids newer to the streets; I guess it’s quite a good sign for a bright future […].

Filmed across Paris, Nantes, Bordeaux, Montpellier, and Lyon. We Razors boys set out on a 10 day tour with a trunk full of Shift boots, looking to give em a proper test and have a bit of fun. Thank you to all those who showed us hospitality and put up with us into the wee hours of the night: La Ratonniere, Lucas Spenle, Al Sticking, Clement Barbaza, and Umberto Toselli - we couldn’t have done any of this without you.

The PMG association (Pari Multi Glisse) is 10 years old, and organized the “Trophees Parisiens de la glisse 2017” on July 1st, 2017 including the “Battle of Bercy” at (you guessed it) the skatepark of Bercy.
The main event featured the usual contests (AM, Juniors, Girls, 13-, 13+) and ended with a battle with the pros. 7 pro riders were invited: Guillaume le Gentil, Nicolas Auroux, Denis Gul, Jeremy Melique, Victor Daum, Julien Cudot, Frederic Bukowski as well as the winner of the AM contest. The event distributed 2000 euros in prizes ($2300: 1000€ for the first place, 600€ second place, 300€ for the 3rd, 100€ the 4th).
A second video is available (PLAY) presenting the event (french language), and covering all of the others pools. Visit Parimultiglisse.com.
