If you happen to be near a core skate shop today be sure to dip in and pick up a copy of ‘Bon Voyage,’ the latest and greatest video offering from everyone's favorite French skateboard company, Cliché.
A lot has happened since their last full-length, ‘Clé, A Live and Unplugged Video.’ They've added to the team tech phenom Daniel Espinoza, switch beast from the East Pete Eldridge, and young NY ripper Kevin Bradley (who happens to be down with Odd Future; his part features an original track by Tyler the Creator).
Team staples like Lucas Puig, JB Gillet, and Javier Mendizabal make everything look way too easy as usual (although I do wish they had longer parts). Lem Villemin unleashes his first full part since he got the ender to the Adidas ‘Diagonal’ video. Of course, our very own Joey Brezinski brought his A-game and invented a handful of new manny tech combinations that boggle the mind. The last part went to newly-turned-pro Flo Mirtain and all I’m going to say is that you better have your finger on the rewind button.
In a time when the line between the local town ripper and professional skaters is really starting to get blurred, it's good to have a company like Cliché drop such a heavy-hitting video to remind us that the bar is constantly being raised.
