Magenta’s Hugo Maillard Brings Out Big Brain Skating In ‘Ni Le Matin’

Since 2010, Bordeaux, France’s Magenta Skateboards have assembled some of the world’s most forward-thinking skateboarders. The brand’s latest video highlights a man they call “L’Genius,” and for good reason: Hugo Maillard brings his big-brain skateboarding to the fore with a bunch of 200 IQ skate lines in his ‘Ni Le Matin’ part. Oh, and he’s also a self-taught pianist; Magenta have put out his first record, used for the soundtrack in his part, and it’s available on their site. Watch his ‘Ni Le Matin (L’Apres-Midi) part, above, and appreciate the magic between the notes.
