Matty Smith – Toon, Toon, Black And White Photos!

So our favourite wallie’n, slamming and cream cake eating friend Matty Smith was back last week and was joined by the switch heel spaniel Josh Cobbin.

I was set for a weekend of filming for ‘Northern Souls’ with the Dynamic Duo, but sadly on the first day Josh got a heavy heel bruise trying to get ‘Buck’ (Think that’s what the kids call gnarly nowadays) over a city centre hubba. This meant it was up to Matty Smith to get some photos and footage for the blog, luckly he’s not adverse to going in hard!

First off is a one of those super trendy wallie polejams, if this was taken at night on a film camera it had the potential to be the cover of ‘Cool Guys Incorporated’. Oh well maybe next time.


Next off was a sexy Saturday stunner in the form of a bs180 nosegrind on the top of the picnic bench at West Jesmond school.


And finally here he is with a wallie at a new civic centre spot. A tricky run up with a tight landing, Matty utilised the power of the white trousers to roll away clean.


Until next time!

What’s that? The sun?

So the winter looks like it’s finally starting to end, which means we can get out shredding a little more!

OG shredder Arnie has been around for years and has probably done one of the best kickflips down Pilgrim 8 ever documented. He’s fairly low key nowadays but when he does make an apprearance it’s always one full of hammers.

I’ve posted a few photos which are blog worthy, but there are some which are being kept incase they’re good enough to be printed!

And let’s not forget Mani, who fresh from his last part in ‘Coast To Coast’ is straight back on it filming a section for my video ‘Northern Souls’.

Wet weekends.

So it’s been cold, wet and miserable and that’s about it.

So basically we went to the moon and it was wet, and it make the best of a bad situation a little session was had on the whippy tranny in the B&Q carpark. Sadly no hotdogs were consumed.

Here is bad boy Ben with a tight rock fakie. You go Ben!


Mr Cobbin was back for the weekend and thankfully didn’t have to endure too much hassle for hammers from me. Here he is with a crail grab, very current.


And finally here is Ranson/Coolio_Featuring_Lv/Randiddly/Randogg/Heed/Bigbootybadboy with an E-cig inspired rock fakie.


See Ya Later!

Winter Wonderland.

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!

London – Man dem, cru, big ups, tings, pars, peng and other London stereotypes.

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!

Oh yes.

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 Kickflip

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 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.
