The Diove Tour was consisted of travelled a part of the France with good place to skate and good place to sleep. Obviously the skating was good and I did my best to show you that on this montage, Iâ€™ve selected nicest and best footages from the tour.
The tour started from Paris the 13th of April 2008 with a session in Bercy organized by diove, then we drove along the road to Lille.
People use to stop along the motorway to take a piss but with a team of skaters when you see a drop ledge in front of your face you need to skate it and kill it the spot after you pissed.
Then we continued the road under the rain and thought that the north will be raining as people use to say, but we arrived in Dunkerque and were surprising about what the sun can do for you when you really want to skate. So weâ€™ve been to a really nice place with a tons of things to do, everything was killed by the different skaters and we finished our day with a big smile when the rain appears at the evening!
After a really nice welcomes by the Adrienâ€™s mom with a big plate of bolognaise pasta and a really good bed for sleeping we was ready to go in Lille.
When you see for the first time the outside skatepark of Lille the only thing you wanna do is running around this nice concrete place to make your best lines tricks. The Team did it so next place.
We threw the free road to Rouen because it was too expensive to take the motorway, so after long hours of driving we were definitely enjoy to find two perfect rails in order to move your feet a little bit, as it used to be the rail was killed and we picked-up the van to go in my city, Caen.
It was the evening but people were still motivated to skate so we decided to go again in a place with two perfect rails. A lot tricks were done by the team and my local friends from there. It was sketchier to sleep in my flat because we had a lack of bed and Adrien and Le Milot was finally decided to go in the hospital for 2 arms broken. So after this night we picked-up Adrien at the hospital, during this time the team saw a very dangerous drop rail, Xavier did his perfect trick first try so we were able to go in Le Mans.
It was raining during 2 days so weâ€™ve skated a nice indoor skatepark then we found a very strange place at Tour with some local skater for an incredible car session and DIY spots, you canâ€™t imagine how itâ€™s funny to find a place like thatâ€¦
Then it was time to go for the best street contest of this year the â€œBling Bling Contestâ€. We were welcome by one of my friends Mr Sushi20 in a house we can called a â€œChateau de la Loireâ€. The day of the contest a lot of tricks were done everywhere, Iâ€™ve chosen to only few tricks but most of them are so nice.
After one week of tour it was time for me to go home, the tour was still there during few days. The rest of the team did so many hammer tricks in Nantes and Le Mans so make sure you will see that in the Adrien Anne DVDâ€™s who is called â€œSans Pretentionâ€. So keep an eye on it !
