SAMMY WINTER SKATES CITE DE LA MODE, PARIS

#NOREGRETS Days – Sammy Winter skates Cité de la Mode et du Design, Paris – directed by French Fred

As the famous saying goes: live every day like it’s your last – with passion, vigour and enthusiasm. If you could spend one day living with no regrets, no reservations, no limits, what would you do?

For skater Sammy Winter, a #NOREGRETS Day is the opportunity to skate through one of Paris’ premier contemporary art institutions without crowds, so we shut down the Cité de la Mode et du Design (The City of Fashion and Design). We took legendary skate director French Fred along to capture Sammy’s day. It’s one of the most remarkable contemporary museums in Paris with its bold architecture dedicated to showcasing France’s established fashion designers alongside emerging talents – Balenciaga next to Comme des Garcons.

Sammy Winter recently turned pro for Cliché Skateboards. He is using his pro model, the “Delivery Room” in the video.

Contiki is the world leader in youth travel, with tours for 18-35s across Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Latin America & North America.
