CONS and Kingpin Present: The French Trio
Pan-European skateboarding magazine Kingpin and CONS have teamed up for a new section featuring “The French Trio,” consisting of Vincent Touzery, Roman Gonzalez, and Paul Grund (who also skates for the Swedish brand Polar).
Most of the footage takes place Paris— easily recognizable with it’s small streets and Haussmanian blaconies— with the riders tearing up the capital’s varied terrain with style. Picturesque grainy black and white super 8 footage is spliced between the higher definition color footage, with a head-wrap a la Bastien Salabanzi making a noteworthy appearance. Mid 1970’s Parisian proto-punk pushes the edit along for an edgy French experience.
