Jim Craven is coming to us with Pearls, a project exploring the European works of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. Dotted across the continent, Calatrava’s buildings and bridges follow a design style that makes his work uniquely skateable. Featuring an ensemble cast of Carhartt WIP riders including Sylvain Tognelli, Ollie Lock, Joe Gavin, Gabriel Engelke, and Jonas Skroder.
I’m still filming it so I don’t know exactly but it’ll be about 10 minutes long.
The video plays at the Brijuni island on Sunday the 29th of September.
Are there words to describe how brilliant new Jim’s Craven video piece is? People who witnessed the unfinished version at Brijuni Islands can now take a break and watch it in peace.

I just really enjoy being able to get the fuck out of the city. I’m not from one and it all still feels quite alien to me. I’d be trying to do these types of trips anyway, without a skateboard.

Jim Craven, a young author from Manchester, is here with us again after last year’s preview of what we today know as the Land video. With great pleasure we are watching his next installment named Island at National park Brijuni on Sunday 24th of September.
‘Island’ is an expansion on a project we embarked on last year, ‘Land’. This summer we have travelled the length of the UK, camping in the wild and skating unique and rural spots along the way. It stars Tom Day and Zach Riley, alongside friends we met along the way.
