Emerica Wild In The Streets Edit

 

The Wild In The Streets edit is now online!

 

Sunday 27th September saw the Emerica Wild In The Streets event take place in our fair city of Manchester, if you weren’t there where the hell were you ?!? It went off as we thought it would! Skateboarders from all over the country descended on a surprisingly sunny and quite warm Manchester! First spot of the day had to be Urbis as this was the meeting spot, the megaphone came out and everybody started getting on it. Rob Smith pulled off some massive lip slides on the bottom ledge whilst Sexual Stu delivered a textbook boardslide shove mid block. Harry Lintell was on fine form, delivering some flip back tail variations, switch front heel and nollie backside heel over one of the marble blocks from flat! After a while, well it was only a matter of time, before people started skating the big 3. Not many things have gone down these steps and its easy to see why. Eddie Belvedere smashed a kickflip from the top to the last step, not easy, and then a first try straight nollie to the bottom step! Big shout out to Robert Rooney Woodward who flung himself down the whole thing quite a few times, ollied it with ease and then getting his backside 180 after a few harsh slams!

The next spot on the agenda was Bridgewater rail / stairs. One of the best sights of the weekend was the vast amount of wood and wheels all in unison on the streets en route to the spot! Oh and a quick nosegrind revert was thrown out by Eddie Belvedere himself! Fair play to all involved for being well mannered and polite to the sometimes bewildered public! The Bridgewater spot isn’t to forgiving on the feet but people rose to the occasion and hammers went down. Straight away Harry Lintell did a NBD early grab boardslide down the rail! Curtis Munton pulled off a steezy tre flip over the rail to finish off the session but not before Black Sheep new boy Sam Mason rolled away with a smith grind!

That was it, next spot! Skating down Deansgate heading towards Granada bump, Lewis Threadgold stopped by Tesco for a quick caveman bluntslide on a rail that shouldn’t be skateable, with hardly any run up squashed next to a glass wall! In the end the session was taken to Castlefield arena where Mr Lintell did it again, this time taking a boardslide down the infamous rail – “ Woody’s rail “. Some of the wooden ramps had been brought down from the Pumpcage and wall ride madness proceeded thanks to Rob Smith, Eddie and Lewis!
