Ever seen someone nose manual a river? If not, you need to watch this film!
Sylvain Tognelli and friends explore the Alps and skate very interesting (and scary) spots along the way.
Our friends at Tiltmode just posted up a great episode featuring Jon Nguyen. Check it out below!
It's been a minute or two since we did a recap on our recent coverage, so here's the latest field report from the Isle comrades.
Firstly, a big shout to Henry Edwards-Wood and the LLSB team for putting together this amazing short film on the reasons why Southbank should be saved. Preservation, not relocation. Make sure you've signed the petition and then spread the word.
If you haven't seen it yet, you need to go and pick up Jake Harris's excellent Eleventh Hour DVD. It's out now in all good skate shops for around £8.50 and features the whole Isle team. Check out the final trailer and then invest:
Nick has got a great four-page interview in issue 87 of Lodown Magazine, where he discusses skating, his artwork and Isle. The same issue has some nice features on Gonz, Brian Gaberman, Gabe Morford and others, so it's well worth checking out.
Whilst we're on the subject of Nick, he's a big part of the epic 9-page Isle Skateboards feature in issue 6 of Dank Magazine from Norway. Dank is one of our favourite mags, with an emphasis on photography and clean design. Thanks guys.
You may have spotted Sylvain in the Modus Bearings promo clip recently: he's currently in Los Angeles, escaping the Berlin winter for a few months. Chris Jones filmed an amazing welcome promo with the guys at Small Wheels that you should definitely check out.
And to round off this report, Tom Knox has a rad interview over at Y-Magazine that's well worth checking out.
The new season's boards will be with us soon, along with some other nice items, and there's a special film project coming very shortly. More on that later...
A group of the Islanders are in Paris right now, taking part as a guest team in the Vans Downtown Showdown event this weekend. If you look carefully, and you might see Nick Jensen, Sylvain Tognelli, Tom Knox and Chris Jones rolling around the course at various points.
Thanks to our homeboy Ben at Sidewalk Magazine, we're able to bring you a live stream from the event right here on our News page:
Shouts to all involved and to all our fellow skaters out there at the moment.
