Jart Skateboards UK Tour

June 24th, 2016




Over the previous two years the guys at Jart Skateboards have been filming for a new full length video called The PROject and you can see them all over on Jart’s Youtube channel. Now once all the hard work has been done a few of their riders have decided to go on a little UK tour visiting spots and skate shops across the country. This Sunday, June 26th, 3PM will see them come and visit us here in store at the Black Sheep so come on down to meet Cian Eades, Fernan Origel, Carlos Zarazua, Adrien Bullard, Mark Frölich and Carlos Neira. There will be a chance to skate with them afterwards at the cage (Projekts Skatepark) and there will also be some freebies to give away so don’t miss out. Have a look at how good these lads are by watching their parts below.

New Jake Potts Part

June 23rd, 2016



If you saw Jake Potts on the streets of Manchester when he wasn’t out skating then you may assume he was a member of the Made In Chelsea crew as his dress sense is off the wall. If you saw him on the streets skating then that would be a different story, he is one of Manchester’s youngest rippers and has proved himself with this long awaited part that showcases the true skills he has. I’m a fan and have been from the start, his mad style combined with the unusual but yet technical trick selection is powerful. He’s only going to go on and get better and better. The highlight for me from this part is the wall-ride shuv out, now that’s something that I will never be able to understand. I really enjoyed this section, the music is on point, the skating includes a variety that only a few can produce and it is generally just a good watch. Hopefully they’ll be more edits to come from Jake Potts in the near future but for now enjoy this current one.


Vans Shop Riot Winners

June 23rd, 2016



For the seventh time we have won the infamous Vans Shop Riot competition winning a place into the European Finals in Portugal this September, where we’ll go head-to-head with other top stores from across the continent. Although winning that one too won’t be a problem as we’ve already managed to bag 1st place in the European competition twice before. It’s just too easy, especially when you have the likes of Jordan Sharkey, Jiri Bulin and Rob Smith as your team. I mean we have got all aspects covered like Rob jumping off anything on offer, the incredible consistent skating that Jordan produces then the mind boggling technical ability that Jiri has, unstoppable. We are really proud to have won the UK Shop Riot, it’s just the European one that needs to be brought back to Manchester. Good work guys and bring that trophy home.

The GX1000 Video

June 21st, 2016


Ryan Garshall has been popping out edits for a number of years now but this spring he dropped a full length video – GX1000, and is now online thanks to Thrasher Magazine. It is full of raw street skating, hill bombs and near misses with traffic and pedestrians – just what street skating is all about. It has footage of a number of people such as Ben Gore, Mark Gonzales, Al Davis, Jake Johnson, Stevie Perez, Jordan Trahan, Marius Syvanen, Yonnie Cruz, Jason Spivey, Matt Finley, Taylor Nida, Brian Delatorre, Andrew Torralvo, Sean Greene, Tylet Pacheco, Hiroki Muraoka, Abidas Rivera and Tony Manfre. If this doesn’t get you hyped to skate, I don’t know what will.

Axel Cruysberghs – Welcome to Toy Machine

Earlier this month via the wonders of Instagram it was announced that Axel Cruysberghs would be officially being added the the Toy Machine Am team.

Jamie Foy’s ‘Twoché’ Part

June 20th, 2016


Jamie Foy is having a pretty good year so far and were only half way through. He’s already had a Recruited and a full part released via the Berrics, then came another full part for Red Bull, as if that wasn’t enough he’s just released another full part this time via Thrasher. Now considering that it’s only June and he has four parts under his belt were pretty sure that we will be seeing a lot more from the Nike SB representative as the year goes on. This new part includes some expectedly heavy San Francisco footage and his ender is one of the heaviest tricks to go down in San Fran history. They call him “The Big Pinch” and if you don’t understand why, you will after watching this.

Primitive x Biggie Collection

June 16th, 2016


Primitive have taken things to the next level by joining forces with the Notorious BIG estate for their next exclusive and limited drop. So if you appreciate good hip hop and are a fan of Biggie, as I’m sure quite a lot of you are then this is the drop for you. It is an officially endorsed collection, although stock is very limited so if you’re interested already, you best keep those eyes peeled because as always, with drops like these, they fly off the shelves. Before we take a little look at the collection it wouldn’t be right without having some Biggie playing in the background so here’s one of my favorite tracks, Juicy.



Who’s on a hype now then, I certainly am. Lets have a little look below at what’s to be expected in one of skateboarding’s latest drop, the Primitive x Biggie one.

Josh Bentley’s ‘May Be Goth’ Part

June 15th, 2016



When Josh Bentley isn’t consuming the numerous tins of baked beans in his student house in South Manchester, he is out skating and producing parts with his good friend and film maker Sam Frost. This latest part that he has to offer is ‘May Be Goth’ and it is the second edition after Sam’s first video ‘Maybelol’. ‘Maybelol’ for those that didn’t witness was nothing but spectacular and it combined good times with raw skating and a little humor. I mean we can all appreciate that can’t we because no point in being serious your whole life. This second part ‘May Be Goth’ that Josh has managed to produce despite having a full time job as a student is also incredible. He is a quirky hippy jumping northern lad and we are pleased to showcase his newest part for all you guys to see, good work Josh.
