Ok this is maybe a provocating title, but imagine just one second that you're living in city known for its architectures and monuments, that you have a winch and fountains all over the city. <BR> <BR>Then motivated by some urban pictures we've seen, we decided to go forward with NeverRide team and Kevin CALVEZ french champion and european junior champion. Without any autorisation we went to three spots. There's even more fountains in the city, but we wanted the most prestigious one : the fountain in front of the eiffel tower surrounded by cops. No matter how many time we could have stay here, we did it! The purpose of the mission was not really to land big tricks for kevin, even if he did it under pression(flip, bigspins, 36 shuvs and other shuvs), but to have an awesome environment around. The sessions took place in La Defense, Canal St Martin and Eiffel Tower. <BR> <BR>We have also made research for other spots, we will keep you in contact. Here are some pictures. You can also visit kevin &amp; Wake City website to see more pics of the mission :<a href="http://www.wake-city.com" target="_blank">http://www.wake-city.com</a> <BR> <BR>Everything has been captured and mixed to get a short urban wakeskate session in the DVD we're producing. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559020/270825.jpg" alt=""> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559020/270826.jpg" alt=""> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559020/270827.jpg" alt=""> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559020/270828.jpg" alt=""> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559020/270829.jpg" alt="">

That is badass! I would agree that Paris is the best urban wakeskating spot. Did you get in trouble?

We had some trouble near the eiffel tower. Cops were here in less than a minute. However Kevin was able to do a set of 5 run before they get really nervous. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559020/271328.jpg" alt="Cops asking Ernesto from neverride crew to stop"> <BR> <BR>By the way here are pictures that we took to show you the potential of Paris : <BR><a href="http://calvez.loic.free.fr/Reperages/" target="_blank">http://calvez.loic.free.fr/Reperages/</a>
