Unlike most comps, the Bling Bling street contest is truly meant to be a 3 days event, packed with action and parties.
As a matter of fact, this year it all started on Friday night, at the infamous Foward Freestyle skatepark in Roselaere, Belgium, for a tremendous pre-session that lasted all night.
After some troubled times in our personal lives, wer’e back again on Frenchy Fries with a sick edit of an even more insane event, the fourth Home Contest in Brussels.
You might remember the previous edit we made featuring Remy Meister destroying his own living room, well, this time they brought the concept even further and built a skate park in their apartment, and skated it like mad men. A must see for sure!
2010, the 17th of April. Sister Lola’s welcoming party, my son Castorfly’s 21st birthday, and some other events and birthdays all mixed in there as well : Antoine Erimian, Kangou, and a few others.
Some questions in our minds, some more utopias, we had to do it big this time : a podium, a square rail, half of bowl with its piece of coping, well it’s here again, THE HOME CONTEST NUMBER FOUR : -blow your house up my brother !-
There are some contests you know you just have to attend. You hear about them, year after year, watch the footage online, and the people you meet keep on telling you how much fun they had last time they went.
After missing the first four editions of the NL contest in Strasbourg, this year I know I have no choice but to be there to attend the event.
The Nouvelle Ligne Contest 2010 will take place this weekend in Strasbourg (France). More infos on the website of Nouvelle Ligne.
Since we care about your education here at Frenchy Fries, we sometimes come up with some old tapes straight off the attic.
Well, we just did it again in 2010 with this never-seen-before edit that is full of clips which are as old as they are precious to a nostalgic mind actually.
We almost had to undertake archeological researches to get those tapes from 2002 and 2003 back.

In a few hours, we will finally be done with this harsch winter and hopefully it won’t be too long before we actually reach summer and enjoy long and warm sunny days.

Kulture: Erik Burke, from Lisban to Copenhagen
For a long time, road tripping on a bike has been one of the Frenchy Fries affiliates’ favorite hobby. From biking all the way down from Lille to Montpellier for the FISE, or travelling from France to Istanbul, Turkey, just to check out the local kebabs, there are countless stories to be told. But this time, Erik Burke takes things to a whole new level !
Along with friend and fellow artist Other, Erik will bike all the way from Lisbon, Portugal, to Copenhagen, Denmark. Leaving on April’s 1st, and after a 2000+ miles road trip, they’ll be holding an exhibition at the MOHS gallery in Copenhagen. This is barely complicated by the fact that all the work for this exhibition will be made during the trip itself ! [...]

2009 is long gone, and it’s now time to get ready for Frenchy Fries 2010′s summer tour, whether it will be called « Pool & Pull » again or not.
As a reminder of the good times we had on the first edition, and as a little preview of what you can expect for the next Euro tour, here’s a selection of AL’s best shots, picked up and commented by himself. Enjoy, and stay tuned for the next edition !
There are far too few in this world, so whenever a skatepark is designed specifically with rollerbladers in mind, we think it’s worth mentioning !
The great people that brought you « French » fries strike again, with the opening of a brand new rollerpark in Belgium !
Featuring Remy Meister, Stephane Mosselmans, Jeremy Suarez, Antony Pottier & Jeremy Kessler. Check the full article on frenchyfries.fr.
As most of you may have seen on several websites in the past days already, the Rasca Prod people just released the first trailer for the second issue of their video series, entitled Entrevue(s) Vol.2. As good and entertaining as it is though, it may not tell you much about the actual project, so here we are to tell you everything about this exciting project !
The video was filmed on several occasions throughout the year (April – December), as it’s hard to make up a schedule in order to film with different skaters living all in different parts of the country. Once again, dedication and personal investment allowed this project to become a reality, and they eventually could cover many places to keep an open eye on the whole scene. [...]

The Open Inline contest used to be the Dutch Championships finals, and quite a reunion of all the incredible local talents, but over the last few years, more and more French competitors started showing up at the event as well, eventually stealing the show and the crown… When not more. [...]
Rock & Roll music and tight fitting clothes are the epitom of everything that’s wrong with rollerblading.
Well, that’s if you believe the daily flood of Internet hatred. Judging by how good looking the trailer for the second Le Sean’s video is, and how much fun these guys have rolling together, to me it seems that they are everything that’s right. [...]

September 27th 2009, Orphée Bristow’s 25th birthday, a launch ramp in our kitchen (courtesy of Antoine Erimian, carpenter, wood carver and architect), the floor all covered in wood too thanks to some quality work (Quentin Mandron, Farside Crash, Antoine and myself), and a grindable couch to top it all off.
This is what got some curious minds to pay us a visit at the One Sixteen, all wondering what kind of madness would unfold. [...]
