J.D. | “Fatherland” Promo

June 27, 2020By hellagripBlog

JD (Jean-Yves Randriambelson)‘s signature sheet of Hella Grip is a homage to his Malagasy roots. He was hoping to film some clips in Madagascar to celebrate the recent release of his “Fatherland” griptape, but the outbreak obviously put a damper on travel. Nonetheless, JD managed to make the best of the current scenario and found a way to stack a bunch of clips around the local streets of France. Having new JD footage to premier is like hoarding gold, so we’re more than hyped to finally share the wealth with y’all. I shouldn’t be surprised to see a longtime rider like JD progressing and living the dream, but I still think it’s worth taking a moment to really appreciate what riders like JD are doing to keep the dream alive for both the younger and older generations.” by the Boss McMasher ..

Sloth Dot Mask – ALL PROCEEDS DONATED

June 7, 2020By hellagripBlog

Black Lives Matter. And at Hella Grip we didn’t just want to say it. We wanted to do something about it. So with the help of BK’s mom we’ve created handcrafted Sloth Dot Masks. The proceeds from these masks will be donated and split between Oakland’s Color of Change ( https://colorofchange.org ) and the International Justice Mission ( https://www.ijm.org ). Head over to the Sloth Shop to grab a mask before they’re gone! We may sometimes move slowly, but it is always with purpose, like a sloth, in the forest. Stay safe and take care of one another, that’s what a homie does. ✊🏾✊🏼✊🏽✊🏻✊🏿

JD | “100 Transitions” Dissidence Video

May 4, 2020By hellagripBlog

“This video is a way of contributing to the scooter community during the lockdown and its only goal is to highlight the fun we get everyday from going on sessions together like we wish we could at the moment. I carry my camera at all time to help my homies with their scooter-related projects whether it be in Madrid, Lille, Barcelona, Lyon or Paris. Special shoutout to Rémi Flipo whose motivation led him to being the only one with a full part in in the video. You will find 35 riders like Maxime Bouzid, Nicolas Jacob, Flavio Pesenti, Boris Germain, Jonathan Perroni, Rémi Flipo, Auguste Pellaud, Didine Terchague and more. But you will also find others usually hidden in the shadows like Baptiste Tonnerre, Bradley Morrissey, Franck Sarcy, Balthazar Neveu, Lucas Wisdorff who have been highly contributing in their own way to the durability of what we like to call the Dissidence spirit This edit is a compilation of footage filmed between 2016 and 2019 that I have been stacking for the past couple years or so on my hard drive. Enjoy the video!” by HG Homie Jean-Yves Randriambelson aka J.D. ..
