35-year-old French artist Lucas Beaufort, who is obsessed with skateboarding, has released a documentary on the evolution of skateboard media, titled Devoted.

Since March 2016, he traveled across Europe, U.S., Japan and Australia to meet the most influential people in skateboard media to get their opinion about the future of print.

“I decided to pay a tribute to people who spent their life documenting skateboarding,” said Lucas. “Writers, photographers, skaters and brands built it all together for over 30 years now. My study is focused on three key periods: ’90s to 2000, 2000 to 2016, and the next 10 years.”

Enjoy the hour-long documentary above featuring Giovanni Reda, Marc Johnson, Tony Vitello, Michael Burnett, Eric Swisher, Mark Whiteley, Brad Staba, Guy Mariano and many more.
