Bordeaux Cite Skate... Forever...

It was one a vibrant place where soldiers were happy to sleep in old crumpled and unfriendly barracks. But the society changed. The hard goods that the French used to consume via trade are now exchanged in services via social network and the soldiers that used to fight at Verdun are now replaced with virtual war and drones. So, the factory workers and the soldiers alike were retired because we now live in a world where we don’t need us humans anymore: corporations are people, computers can do it all for us, including consuming…

The old equilibrium of the Ying and the Yang was destroyed forever…

Until the City of Bordeaux decided that something had to be done about those old barracks… So they called Seb Daurel and asked him if he would take care of a project with an odd name… Darwin was born. Seb and his crew, started by crafting a wooden bowl, then they assembled the PAS skate house, then a ramp and finally a concrete bowl named Ying and Yang… The equilibrium was restored. The Ying Yang bowl was dig to represent the microcosm of the Rive-Droite Rive-Guache spilt of the Bordeaux town.

The bowl is not yet open to the public. Usual stuff with Cities, ya know, permits, authorization…

Nonetheless, when you have a concrete bowl you have to use it…
So Seb invited a couple of local shredders Julien Chauvineau, Gauthier Laverhne, Loic Morice, Jéremy Hobon, Marie Dabbadie, Pauliana Laffabrier & Rico. And there you go…

Enjoy!!
