Quand Matthieu s’est installÃ© dans le Nord de la France l’annÃ©e derniÃ¨re, il a amenÃ© avec lui beaucoup de motivation, et une bouffÃ©e d’air frais. Il est toujours bon d’avoir quelqu’un de motivÃ© pour skater ou regarder la derniÃ¨re vidÃ©o IBI Unique quand l’hiver frappe durement. Ainsi, il s’est vite intÃ©grÃ© Ã la scÃ¨ne, et est depuis considÃ©rÃ© comme un local que tous appellent “Johnny”. Il passe toujours beaucoup de temps dans la Mayenne pour le travail, mais est de retour tous les mois pour poursuivre ses Ã©tudes, et apprÃ©cier la Bonne Bouffe belge avec une biÃ¨re locale. C’est comme Ã§a qu’il aime le Nord.
When Matthieu Dosso moved in the North of France last year, he brought a lot of motivation with him, and a breath of fresh air. It’s always good to have somebody juiced on skating or the latest IBI Unique video when winter hits you pretty hard. He got along with the scene pretty well, and since then, he’s considered as a local mate, often reffered to as “Johnny”. He still has to spend a lot of time out of town for work, but you know he’ll be back in a few weeks to keep up with school, and enjoy some belgian junkfood with a local beer. That’s how he likes it.
Quand il n’est pas occupÃ© Ã se sociabiliser sur Facebook, Matthieu est aussi largement investi dans le roller, que ce soit en voyageant avec ses potes, en prenant des photos ou en capturant quelques tricks en vidÃ©o, ou bien simplement en s’amusant sur ses roulettes. Ce petit edit est une collection d’images filmÃ©es pendant l’Ã©tÃ© 2008, en grande partie pendant son sÃ©jour Californien, avec un petit camÃ©scope. Le skating est nÃ©anmoins trÃ¨s apprÃ©ciable, et c’est pourquoi notre ami Sylvain “Sushi” ChaussÃ©e a montÃ© cette part et vous la prÃ©sente aujourd’hui, en espÃ©rant que vous l’apprÃ©ciiez ! En somme, c’est surtout un petit trailer pour annoncer la seconde partie de tout ceci, qui sera une collection des photographies de Matthieu, et qui devraient Ãªtre en ligne d’ici la fin de semaine. Don’t sleep !
When not busy hunting young girls on Facebook, Matthieu is also involved in rollerblading a lot, be it while touring with his friends, shooting pictures, getting some tricks on film or just rolling around and simply having fun. This little edit is a collection of tricks filmed in the summer ’08, mostly while he was staying in Norcal, on a crappy little camera. He was rolling pretty good nonetheless, and that’s why our friend Sylvain “Sushi” ChaussÃ©e edited this little piece and now present it to you. Hope you enjoy it ! After all, this is just a little trailer to get you all juiced on the second part of all this, which will be a collection of Matthieu’s photography, that should be online by the end of the week. Don’t sleep !
When thinking about their first trip to California, most people are flooded with memories of family vacations and Disneyland.
At the age of fifteen my first California experience consisted of parties, famous skate spots, and being a designated driver strapped with nothing but a learners permit. Instead of staying in hotels I was treated to the accommodations of the SDSF mansion, and even got to experience their house warming event…

Quentin Mandron and Stephane Mosselmans are two strong characters.
That’s why we thought that for once, it would make sense to let them take care of the editorial piece to present their shared profile, filmed in multiple skate parks throughout France and Belgium by Samuel “Bodchoy” Courdent, and edited somewhere between France and Ireland. Enjoy !
Stephane Mosselmans by Quentin Mandron:
I could talk about Mossel’s skating but it makes no sense, that’s something you have to watch by yourself, and Stephane doesn’t like reading nice stuff about himâ€¦
I could talk about the day I met him and Gregory Defreyne and how they filled my eyes with dreams, or about sessions in the street of Brussels, or about the night when it becomes pure poetry. Actually, I’ve only one thing to say.
Go fuck yourselves ! Viva el Norte, viva Brussels and viva Stephane Mosselmans ! Bicky, drugs ans Mos and roll !!!
Quentin Mandron by Stephane Mosselmans :
Five or six years ago, I met Quentin Mandron. It was in Lyon. And it is one of the reasons why I really love him : because he’s from Lyon.
And also because he does some long, looooonnnnng backside royale, kinda like Shima. Long story short : if you don’t like that guy you suck ! I for myself do love him, and I am really glad to share a profile with him. Quentin, if you read this : Merliche !
We often get to hear things like “it was all better before” in the world of rolling.
It seems like there is a huge nostalgia for the people who’ve been skating for quite some time.
Maybe it’s all because of the downfall of our industry in the past years.
Maybe it’s because Hoax II seems real far away now.
Maybe it’s because there are no “Welcome at the Terrordome” USD ads anymore.
Maybe it’s because Mindgame is now Game Over…
Frenchy Fries: Essai 3.
Essai3 is a buddy’s video even if some people say it’s not because there is more footages of some skaters than others. But it’s always the same thing. We can’t satisfy everybody.
Anyway the video brought out in october 2005, basically i filmed in the north of France, Paris, Nice and through the Talk Shit Tour’s Road Trip (Essen, Praha, Bratislava, budapest, Zagreb, Italy, Nice). I hope you ll enjoy it.
Thank you to all my friend who filmed with me for this video.

Kids! Don’t try this at home! ^^
Rollerblading is an individual sport. The paradox is, we really get to enjoy it the most when practiced collectively, as a group…
I have been claiming my love for the North for a few years now, and trying to get friends from all around the country to come and visit. No matter what, I always know itâ€™s going to be a great time there. Weâ€™ll get a session going, and then we will most probably head to one of our favorite food place right before crashing some party, but one thing is certain, we are going to have lots of fun. Friends. Friends make everything more enjoyable, they make even the shitty moments worth it, like spending hours stuck on the freeway thanks to exploding wheels. I wouldnâ€™t have enough kind words to thank them; they know who they are anyway. But thank you guys for giving me a place to crash, thanks for the road trips all around the place, thanks for all the laughs of course, and thanks for being there and being who you are. True happiness can only be reached when shared.

Nobody Cares: Clement Boucau (Frenchy Fries) Entry.
Well, there’s not much to say about this funny little character. He’s actually really shy, and his english is not that good, so that could have made the 10 days he spent in San Diego kind of complicated. But the happy smile he carries on his face, and his “baboon on acid” gimmicks made his stay really easy, and his presence here well accepted.
He came to California with a busted knee, so we didn’t get to skate that much during his stay, but between all the burgers at Carl’s Jr, the chill sessions at the beach, and the touristic visits downtown, he still managed to skate Poway and Escondido’s parks, shot a few clips on real street spots, and competed at the AIL contest last week-end at Woodward West, getting props from legends like Jon Julio or Robert Guerrero for his skating. All this mixed with countless, endless laughs…
Well, these were good times after all, and these 10 days went by way too fast. Clement is somebody you really enjoy having around you. He’ll bring a smile on your face, and his stylish skating is certainly worth watching. Hope you enjoy this little section flimed and edited for you and the Franco Shade guys by Samuel “Bodchoy” Courdent !
up: Mathieu Heinemann.
Rollerblading is a wonderful physical activity (call it a sport if you will). The act of rolling in itself can bring you through a lot of different sensations: pain and pleasure, frustration and satisfaction, physical achievement, and eventually, FUN.
Rollerblading, when you stick with it, can also become a real lifestyle. Through the road trips you take, the friends you meet, the experiences you make, you will eventually change. It will influence the decisions you make, and the way you perceive life.
Rollerblading can also transform into a raw emotion. Be it a jaw dropping reaction when you witness a crazy trick first hand, or simply being struck by the perfection of a trick when performed in an outstanding way, you can be marked for life by moments of incredible beauty.
For instance, I think no one that was present that day will ever forget Mathieu Heinemann skating with the rain at the last 100 Contest in Cergy. Iâ€™m glad we can try to share it with you, though, with the images collected through the lens of our video camera. To me, the act of rolling can sometimes become the art of rolling. I hope you feel the same way after watching this.
Iâ€™ll just quote my friend Samuel â€œBodchoyâ€ Courdent to conclude: â€œitâ€™s an edit that makes you appreciate rollerbladingâ€. I think you can trust him, since heâ€™s the one who filmed and edited this visual gift for you.
Growing up skating in Lyon (France) can be hard, sometimes. I mean, you have to be tough to survive the â€œSchool of Fochâ€, and the harsh comments of masters like Nicolas Bellini or Thomas Pfluger.
It can be really good, too, because itâ€™s a school that taught you that itâ€™s not about the tricks you land, but the way you do them. And also, that even if you are Andrew Reynolds or Miss France, youâ€™re still not good enough to mess with these guys.
Quentin Mandron and Louis Villard survived. Lessons are sometimes learned the hard way. Approaching every obstacle with speed and landing every trick with steeze, the streets of Lyon do now belong to these guys. Quentin even earned himself a spot on the French Razors team, and also skates for Ground Control and 4X4 Wheels. I guess todayâ€™s lesson is: donâ€™t mess with Lyon, donâ€™t mess with those guys, and enjoy the edit made for you by Samuel â€œBodchoyâ€ Courdent !

Here are two edits prepared by our sushichef : the first one has been posted on rollernews in september, so most of you perhaps already saw it.
The second one is a fresh compilation of winter tricks, mixed with the sunny voice of Patsy Cline!
Summer 2007 Edit:
Now what else should we do to forget the rainy cold weather than watching a sunny edit ? Here is the great tarmac, the green palm tree, the pimp bike and some cool dude to entertain your lonely nights.
Actually it’s not that big, but only few minutes and friendship. If you really want to watch high quality tricks, go get “the truth” it’s worth it. this edit is only about tripping, chilling, sleeping, seeing, enjoying and sometimes rollerblading. For the most it has been filmed all over the bay area, wich means San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose, Antioch, Fremont and very quickly in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Clemente.
Patsy Cline Edit:
It feels weird writing this article on the 5th edition of the RISC (Rouen Indoor Street Contest), because I was actually 10.000 km away during the contest. Weird, not because I donâ€™t know what to say or what happened during this (always) incredible week-end, but simply because I regret not being there. And I sure regret not being able to share all the amazing moments, moments that made this contest so successful and memorable, with my friends for the 5th year in a row.
Created in â€™04 to bring the scene together during the winter, and supported by Roll Brothers (R.I.P), the local skate shop, the contest was an instant success. The comp was amazing, people went crazy, parties were memorable (thanks to the cops), Bukette became Franceâ€™s favorite MC and hotel rooms got destroyed.
Year after year, the crowd went larger, the skating went crazier, and more happy memories were built for everyone. Second edition witnessed a lot of internet drama and the battle â€œParis VS Franceâ€. Third edition became a battle on the crazy transfer to rail, with Stephane Alfano landing a next level 360 inspin soul to fakie. The fourth edition has seen the reign of Mathias Silhan become unquestionable and recognized by everyone.
Musics: The Turnaround and Girl talk too deep.
I wonâ€™t go on and on about it, just open your eyes and enjoy these imagesâ€¦!
Itâ€™s quite a rare thing to see our dear Buketteâ€™s skating, whoâ€™s just as crazy as we are, and make us dream both with a micâ€™ in his hand than with rollers at his feet!
Letâ€™s keep going with a whole bunch of crazy dudes and if something makes me dreamâ€¦ that would be it!
