Cape Town-based professional skateboarder Jean-marc Johannes has just released his latest video clip, ‘Left Field’. Fast-paced and riveting, the five minute video features almost exclusively raw street skating equal to that of any international video part. Jean-marc showcases every trick in his bag (which is deep) across a wide range of spots in the Mother City, from smooth marble ledges to the dodgiest chunked out DIY spots and no park skating at all (except for one trick I think). Predictably the clip is filled with typical JM tech-flip wizardry, great street lines and gnarly gaps. Definitely worth watching… again and again. – bluntEd.

Jean-marc is no stranger to the street and filming video parts, after his debut video part on The RIDE channel, the global attention on his Instagram showcasing daily consistency, progression with a surprising bag of flatground tricks and his Connexion Wheels video that was released in 2021 that  introduced Jean-marc to the Pro ranks of Connexion Wheels USA was the beginning of his unique trick selection, approach to street spots and consistency.

‘LeftField’ was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa by Lyle Minnaar, Owen Wilson, Zaheer Ahmed, Moegammad Abrahams, Mark Khor and edited by Owen Wilson.

Complemented by the sounds of The Life on Venus band with a track off their new album ‘Homewards’, the video part is a combination of great music, a well rounded barrage of tricks with a next generation technical approach to skateboarding.
