#CafePierro, behind the cam

By 26 novembre 2014Blog, Videos

Do you like coffee ? Do you like Freebord ? Then here is a way that offers Pierre Linckenheld to bring your favorite energizer directly in your hands. Working as a waiter at the Café de Grancy, Lausanne, this pro team rider had the idea to match his job with his passion : freebording.

To remind you the enjoyable result of this video cooked in one day, just clic play below.                                        

Thanks to the huge help of Arnaud Blin who edited and filmed the shots with his electronic stabilizer Ronin, the rendering could have been perfectly cleaned. Here are some snaps of the beast and the hunter.


But what was this crazy stuff made for ? The primary idea was to propose a new concept for the Best Submitted Video contest 2014 and actually, it won.
YEAY ! Remember last year, The Man with the Golden wheel also got this title; one year later, Freebord Suisse brings back the award of Best Submitted Video among more than 30 worldwide edits.

The disease didn’t stop in San Francisco. #CafePierro created the buzz all over internet, mainly in Switzerland, but also in France and amazingly in Spain and Canada. Extreme sport website such as 30°, Zapiks and X-Treme helped sharing this video. So did many blogs, for instance My Urban Planet, or TV Channels like Tracks on Arte. National newspapers – Le Matin & 24heures – published a complete report, and Couleur 3, local radio station, also developped this fashion phenomenon.

Since then, Pierre’s Café can be grateful to him considering the amount of incoming new consumers that is still arriving, yelling all day long »Hey, I saw your video ! »

As often, the funniest part isn’t the result, but the moments captured, lived and shared next to it. Let the characters pictures explain this to you.


Arnaud Blin from the CHoE crew just edited a final bonus video that reveals the ambiant fun that ruled the day. Grab a cup of coffee and catch a final laugh !
