The French Connection is no joke. This short video, Darkside, of Axel Cristol is no exception. The Black and White cinematography from Directer/Filmer/Editor Olivier Harrault under GroovyBaby is genius as always. With some additional filming from the water from photography brain, Remy Dugoua, the short 2 and a half minute video will have you wishing you were waking up on the shorelines of France. Axel has been our top French rider for years now. He's currently living and working in Sri Lanka, and we're anxiously waiting to see him on some minute-long Sri Lankan liners. For now, though, we ask that you sit back, click play on this short bit of goodness that is "Darkside", and further admire the skills of Axel Cristol.
