TEMPLE is a conceptual monochrome short film, following skateboarder Sammy Montano on a journey through the Balkans and its fallen monuments.

It was essential to transcribe them with respect according to our vision, to spiritualize the expression of their magnificent forms, timeless aesthetics and monumental dimensions. Confronting them with skateboarding allowed us to animate this notion of freedom and exploration.

Sammy Montano places himself as a central witness, being both the representation of this quest but also its outcome. It represents the doubt that animates each of us in the face of the unknown and this constantly renewed desire to take step in search of the answers to our deepest beliefs.

This film is a personal art project, a pure reverence and tribute to these monuments, better known as
« Spomeniks » and their legacy.

Southsiders present: Wheels & Waves - Third Edition | David & Douglas

Southsiders present: Wheels & Waves – Third Edition | David…

The official video of the Wheels & Waves 2014 organized by The Southsiders. WHEELS & WAVES 2014 was crazy! The dream we had to one day bring together all the people we love and who share our passion for custom motorcycles is being realised each June in the beautiful town of Biarritz. More than two months have passed since the third edition of Wheels and Waves and we have only just landed back on planet Earth. As summer 2014 slowly comes to an end we’re proud to release our official video: a seven minutes edit that will take you back to the epic journey we all shared as family and friends on the road and in the water. This year we were overwhelmed by the number of participants from over over Europe, North American and even Asia who came to see motorcycles presented as art as well as to take their machines through the mountains and over the boarder to Spain on some awesome rides. W&W is not a purist or elitist event and we welcomed every type and style of custom bike with influences from skate, surf, bmx, bicycle, music, hot rod, chopper, shed, gonzo and too many other styles and cultures to mention from many generations and age groups. As Wheels and Waves grows bigger we want to keep pushing boundaries and will increase the emphasis on creativity, interactivity, enthusiasm and spontaneity, so stay aware as more is to come. Le rêve que nous avons eu un jour de réunir une communauté d’individus passionnés comme nous par la moto custom et l’univers qui y est lié devient plus réel que jamais. Plus de deux mois se sont écoulés depuis la troisième édition de Wheels and Waves et nous reposons tout juste les pieds sur terre. Alors que l’été touche doucement à sa fin, nous sommes fiers de vous présenter notre vidéo officielle : un film de sept minutes à travers lequel vous replongerez dans la troisième édition de notre réunion annuelle – et quel event !! Cette année, un nombre encore plus impressionnant de participants est venu des quatre coins d’Europe et même plus loin, pour atteindre le point de rendez vous emblématique du phare de Biarritz. Il est difficile de qualifier Wheels and Waves comme un événement purement moto, même si la moto et le custom sont un vecteur commun à la majorité des participants. Nous avons vu cette année que les cultures surf, skate et même bmx étaient largement représentées, et que Wheels and Waves attirait une jeunesse en quête de nouveaux moyens d’expression. Alors que Wheels and Waves grandit au fil des années, nous le voulons ouvert et reflet des tendances actuelles. Nous continuerons à repousser nos limites et à privilégier la créativité, l’enthousiasme et la spontanéité. Restez connectés, la suite est à venir !
