In this edition of Hotspot we’re going international.
Paris is full of tourist attractions, but it’s also full of incredible skate spots. None of which are more famous than the legendary Bercy Blocks.
Just outside of Paris in Bercy is a massive stack of blocks that has been skated for years. As skating has progressed, so have the tricks that have gone down at this spot.
Willow just did a huge variel heel down it for an Etnies ad:
This local kid stomped one of the cleanest tre flips Bercy has ever seen:
And check Andrew Reynolds’ BS 360 and BS heel:
The Bercy Blocks is Paris’ hottest spot. Expect to see more insane shredding here in the future.
In the streets, it seems as if every skater is writing something on their griptape. From ‘Shake Junt’ to your own random tag, griptape art is hot right now. Allow us to introduce you to the sickest griptape artist out there, Moüse.
Inspired by graffiti and stencil art, Moüse creates one of a kind sheets of grip that will make your ride the hottest on the block. With imagery ranging from Biggie and Pac portraits to Indian chiefs and weed leafs, Moüse has something for everyone.
Moüse hand sprays each sheet of Mob Grip himself and they are sold individually through Blackbox Distribution. His work graces the grip of Jon Dickson, Tommy Sandoval, and Gareth Stehr. And that’s only the beginning.
Griptape isn’t his only medium either. He has a line of shirts and vinyl records blasted with his signature style. Moüse is more than just an artist, he’s a legit ripper on a board, and he does it all for the love of skateboarding.
Skateboards and tattoos go hand in hand. They both represent a mindset that challenges the standards and conventions of society. Element Skateboards has brought the two even closer together with the release of ‘Element X’ skateboard decks designed by Kat Von D and Bam Margera.
Kat and Bam are longtime friends and Kat has even blasted a majority of his body with her legendary artwork. Like Bam, the decks are tatted up with Kat’s signature style of black & grey portraits, intense ornate leafing, and super slick script. They also have an element of Bam in them with Black Metal, skulls, and fallen angels. Their monotone colorway makes them an easy match to the rest of your setup.
Bam’s boards have always been a top seller for Element. Now with Kat Von D’s art on them, these are sure to sell out quick to both collectors and everyday shredders. Hit this link to check them out, or hit up your local shop and cop one (or a few) for yourself.
