Travel through India ... on a Skateboard

French skate company Oxelo Skateboards took a team to India to shoot this gorgeous skate video, traveling to Bangalore, Dheli, Jaipur, and Agra over ten days. The film was created by director Guilhem Machenaud, Thomas Bevilacqua, Baptiste Ribeton, and Nicolas Guittard.

Simon Volpoet, the team manager, describes their inspiration, "We wanted to create something really different thanks to this mixture between a culture and a sport -- skateboarding is a sport with a strong cultural energy, and India is a country full of treasures. During the trip, all the locals were enthusiastic and curious about skateboarding. All the children were smiling! It was a real experience of sharing!"
