Magenta's new video Mare Nostrum is a new banging 10 minute edit featuring their Mediterranean adventures in Marseille & Valencia with team riders Leo Valls, Vivien Feil, Soy Panday, Jimmy Lannon, Zach Lyons, Glenn Fox and many more.
The man behind Land, Jim Craven has come through with a similarly themed project to his last one, in conjunction with Grey, Emerica, and Dickies. This time, titled Island, the beautifully shot video sees Heroin riders Tom Day and Zach Riley take centre stage, travelling the length and breadth of the country, from Land's End to John o'Groats, seeking out rarely, if ever, seen spots for your viewing pleasure.
Much like the last video project, a lot of thought, time and effort have gone into this, however this release is accompanied by a special zine from Grey, which should be hitting skate shops any day now. Keep checking your local shops to see a variety of interesting photos from a range of gargantuan UK structures never intended, or even contemplated, for the use of a skateboard.
The video also featuers cameos from a variety of heads, including Keanu Robson, Joe O'Donnell, Josh Arnott, Conor Charleson and Will Creswick.
We can't really throw enough superlatives out there to describe this video, so it's probably for the best that you sit back, and let Mr Craven take you on a sensory journey through the UK's countryside.
Well done, once again, lads.
'Next', the latest London centric clip features a whole host of London heavyhitters and features a range of London spots, both well-known and lesser seen.
Honourable mentions go to Arthur Derrien for his impressive switch stance prowess, and NOTE's own bespectacled technician, Dom Henry, who absolutely went IN for this vid. For further evidence of Dom's ability on a skateboard, it's well worth checking out his back catalogue.
All-in-all, this is a thoroughly enjoyable clip; well filmed, well edited, and well thought out music choices combined with a cast featuring Kyron Davis, Dan West, Mark Rowe, Shaun Witherup, Conor Charleson, Will Creswick, Pani Paul, Tristan Rudman, Froby, Mikey Patrick, Manny Lopez, Charlie Munro, James Ahern, Corey Young, Rowan White, Justin Biddle, Caradog Emanuel, Jason Caines, Will Harmon, Guy Jones, Jim Silver, Digby Luxton, Max Couling, Casey Foley, Tom Snape, Arthur Derrien, Erildo Boccacci and JP Villa, make this one a must see.
