So it’s the time of year when it’s cold, wet and gets dark by 4pm which in turn means skateboarding becomes a hell of lot more difficult. Despite this we’ve managed to get out filming between the various hot chocolate breaks.
Native rider The Cougar has been on one recently and within the space of a few weeks has managed to film half a section for my video ‘Northern Souls’. Here is a warm up ollie down the college big 3 before he proceeded to blast out a massive NBD.
Some of the Fabric guys were up this week finishing off filming for the Fabric promo. We decided a good spot would be Sunderland Plaza and we hit it up as early as possible. Unfortunately for us it was soaked through and the freezing weather meant it looked like it was going to take a while todry up. After a swift trip to poundland and the purchase of lots of towels we proceeded to dry the spot up. With the spot reclaimed Jason quickly got to skating and within a few goes got this rad bs noseblunt! Keep your eyes peeled to see the footage in the Fabric promo.
Til next time, have a hot chocolate on me!
I was down in London last weekend filming with the Fabric team for the forthcoming promo. I don’t have any photos of them as they’re keeping their photos for adverts and other such important things, I did however get some radical maneuvers from some the crew who were shredding over the weekend.
All round powerhouse Connor went in hard at every spot and even managed to get hit by a car on the Sunday! This wallride spot was in the middle of a housing estate which was literally like a level from Tony Hawk’s. The whole RVCA were sessioning round the corner so Connor to hit up this Rock and Roll while it was quiet. EDIT: TOOK PHOTO DOWN AS WILL TOOK A VERSION AFTERWARDS ON HIS FILM CAMERA AND NOW WANTS TO SEND IT OFF TO A MAG! HERE’S A GNARLY PIC OF THE COUGAR INSTEAD, OLLIE BIN TO FLAT!
Josh Cobbin decided to come down to London for the weekend so he could get some clips for my Northern Souls video, unfortunately he rolled his ankle really badly on the first night! He did manage to film some bangers first thankfully, as well getting this rad K grind pic!
On the final day Manny took us to a gnarly rail spot and while he warmed up his mate Daryl casually kickflipped this insanely steep gap!
Til next time!
It’s been a while, I won’t try and make any excuses, I’m just fucking lazy.
A collection of pics from the last few months.
Will decided to hit up this uphill road gap a few weeks back and without much fuss rolled away dreaming of Brad Cromer giving him a high five.
Adam K grind
Adam has just learnt K grinds, he can them on lots of things, here is one such thing.
Will bs 50-50
Will Sheerin has been in the Toon for a while but I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting him til recently. He’s a ripper and a good lad, here he is Christianising the new rail in Exi park with a bs 50-50.
Mani No Comply
Mani with the ever so hot No Comply.

Let’s hope the next update is not too long away.
So it’s getting nice and warm which means we’ve been out skating a lot more.
Josh Cobbin is set to have a banging section in my upcoming vid ‘Northern Souls’ and he’s really racking up the footage at the moment.
CLICK PICS TO ENLARGE.
Here he is with a 5.0 180 out; he landed it first go which was pretty mental!
Here he is again with a fs tail, Josh wasn’t super keen on trying this, but as usual once he did he’d landed it within 4 goes!
Jamie C is another person I hope to film a section with and as he films about 3 clips every time he’s out, it doesn’t look like that will be much of a problem!
Here he is with a hefty ollie out of a kicker which would be perfect for Kerry Getz!
Til next time, SEE YA LATER!
So I’ve been internet less for the last month or so which means there has been a distinct lack of blogging!
Anyway let’s not waste anymore time with boring excuses!
First we have Will with an ollie into a very thin and high roof. After we’d skated here a family decided to lock us in the school grounds. This resulted in having to ring the council to come and let us out, it being a Sunday meant that we were stuck waiting around for 45 minutes; lovely.
Next we having Mani with a boardslide pop over, notice how I’ve gone for the super arty shot behind the fence. Some would say I’m a innovator, maybe even a genius behind the camera, they’d probably be right.
And finally we have Buster with a styled out Bs Lip. It’s got everything you want right here, ‘trill’ trick, ‘dope’ clothes, ‘rad’ style, ‘sick’ stunts and ‘OG’ skater, what more could you want!
Til next time!
The weather’s getting better so hopefully updates will be more frequent!
First off here is Josh performing some stunts on a makeshift spot.
And finally here’s a pic of Manny Lopez doing a large 50-50. I shot it at a weird angle; I think it looks kinda cool but hey you might not. Either way we can all agreed that it’s Manny doing the trick.
SEE YA LATER!
Had the chance to have a play with some flashes thanks to Josh. Never really used them before so the pic is not the best, but hey you have to start somewhere!
Adam – ollie to wallride
