White Noise Incoming.

Friday, December 6th, 2013



Some of you may have hazy memories of our mental Christmas party we threw last year but for those not in attendance or still trying to claim back them missing brain cells you’ll be stoked to hear the finely produced “White Noise” that we premiered is now making it’s way part by part via Sidewalk Magazine. All Rob Smith’s creation pieced together from the constant time he spends traveling and those shared skating experiences from various tours with Carve Wicked, Carhartt, Death Skateboards etc etc..  Look out for part 2 dropping some time soon.


This should be watched in true P.U.M.F tradition so make sure your can of Stella is firmly grasped before you click play.




Volcom X Parlour

Thursday, December 5th, 2013




Our boy Nick “Stanners” Stanfield got away earlier this year with the UK Volcom crew and London based Parlour Shop riders. Watch the result of what looks to be a rad trip and see the full photographic evidence in the latest Sidewalk Magazine issue 206. Also nice to see local Copenhagen Flip Skateboards pro Rune Glifberg getting over verted in the padless/mentalness manor.






New Balance Numeric 04/12/13

Monday, December 2nd, 2013


Yeah that’s right, we’ll be one of six stores in Europe to get the first exclusive Holiday drop from the New Balance Numeric skate range. We’re obviously expecting high demand for these so be prepared for 12 midday on Wednesday 4th December as they’ll be available on a no reserve policy at our Manchester Skateboard Store and online immediately.

Drag that cursor in a downwards motion to see what you can expect with the 5 new shoe offerings from New Balance Numeric. Not pictured but we will also have two very limited runs of the Reflex Premium Tshirts in Vintage Black and Heather Grey along with the Shadow Tee in Black.

It’s seems a decade ago since we attended the sneak peak viewing of these next generation skate shoes but as you’d expect from the New Balance camp these are some serious quality footwear. Even in the pre-production samples we got to peruse all them months back what sticks in our mind is the over all solid construction with some serious tech put into each style.

So if you’ve already been researching the new direction for New Balance you’ll know they’ve gotten into bed so to speak with skate industry legend Jamie Thomas and all at Black Box brands (the guys who bring you Zero, Fallen and Slave Skateboards etc..) so rather than blindly walking into a whole new world of footwear with blinkers on you know they’ve come correct by including the many years of experience and skate knowledge that comes with working with these industry kingpins.


Another first for New Balance Numeric is the naming of the shoes, as in all the many years of New Balance history they have only ever numbered there different styles such as the iconic signature runner 574 but now with the introduction of there skate range they’ve attached names such as the Quincy, Logan, Brighton and Stratford all of which are cleverly drawn from the local Boston surroundings.

As with each countries launch of the highly anticipated range New Balance Numeric seen fit to bring you the whole team respectively cruising/crushing each territory and fingers crossed with the imminent UK release we’ll at some point see some grimy cobbled spots on British soil getting a good seeing to. Watch below for what you can come to expect from team riders PJ Ladd, Arto Saari, Tom Karangelov and Levi Brown along with Scottish all round good human being John Rattray heading up team management duties.
