Our Friends Are Our Heroes – Warriors Skateboards

by giuli 24 January 2011

Yari Copt refers to the Warriors as a very serious Swiss skate company. Everytime i go to Lugano for a photoshoot i come home exhausted. But watching Gilles Gallicchio, Martino Cattaneo, Igor Fardin & co. skate in real life pays me back everytime.

The Warriors are true veterans to the Jammin’ project. This is the fourth bastard Warriors collection, the clothing has evolved but the concept stays the same: 100% skate apparel.

Their latest video project Come Out To Skate was presented a few weeks ago and is available online, soon out in dvd.

by jep 24 January 2011

The first issue of the wagazine – that is the  Warriors skateboards magazine – has just been published. With them bastard runs a collabo on some clothes since a few seasons.

It’s 138 pages of skateboarding and the transfer above of Julien Benoliel in the Marseille skatepark well represents the mood. Take a look.

Warriors Sunglasses

A little bit of a typical Warriors roughness together with the polyhedral genius of Yari Copt gave birth to this clip to present the new shades that fit well with the clothing line developed with bastard.

Yari rocks the house @ Vans Off the wall Music Stage

by giuli 24 January 2011


Last night we checked out the “Those Furious Flames” in concert, leaded by Yari Copt, who’s also captain in charge of the Lugano skate crew “Warriors“, and owner of the local skateshop “The Joker Shop“.

The event was promoted by Vans and featured two other bands: “Dragoni” and “Miasma”.

Beautiful location, Lido Lugano, with plenty of good people and chilled out by the lake’s fresh breeze, something we can only dream of out here in Milano!

Things learned: that Lugano and Zurich are two different places, that Yari definetely rocks, and that switzerland is practically heaven on earth, i’d most likely raise my kids out there, as long as they don’t become junkies, or even worse, bankers! :)

Yari Copt camera

SKATE IS NOT A SPORT” this is the name of the documentary about Yari Copt‘s life. Produced by RTSI (swiss television) was on air last monday night. I really like it, it talks about Yari’s way of life, about him as a skateboarder, as a singer of Those Furious Flame (his band), about his fight against the cancer, about the Warriors (his crew), his work and his dreams… What else? just Yari….
