Sicilian Memories Pics: Biais, Mauro, Coupeau… Shot By Coupeau
It’s cliché but eternally and profoundly true: The best part of skateboarding is that it’s your door to the world, your pass to fun times, your fuel to friendship and your spark to creativity.
Want another proof? Check out what Vincent Coupeau and Ludovic Azemar brought back from their Sicily trip: Some amazing photography, a sick edit, and a ton of good times out skating with friends. What more can you ask for?!
Ludo’s edit premiered in bar in Paris on Wednesday a long with an exhibition of Vincent’s photos. The two took the occasion to get friends together and reminisce their Sicilian Memories over some cold ones. We’ve got a few of those here for you to catch a glimpse (and the edit here). Enjoy.

1- First funny thing: When we got to Catania, we discovered that people were driving their car as if everyday was in some kind of dangerous race. In order to be able to move from spot to spot I had rent a little car – without taking some insurance for it, eventually trying to save little money.
I think I tried to drive the first night before realising that, even though I was used to Parisian traffic, I wouldn’t be able to sit behind the wheel over there! In fact, I didn’t drive for the whole trip in the end, because I was too scared. So Mauro was leading the race pretty well until one day, driving pretty fast in the narrowest street, we totally broke one rear view mirror… I feared I would loose the caution but Mauro and his friend finally fixed a new mirror the day before bringing the car back! Just in time.
