Filming for a video as big as this can push the best skateboarders in the world to their mental and physical breaking point. It’s not all doom and gloom in this edit though, highlights include Busenitz skating some bamboo and some street bangers that are fitted in to under four minutes of footage.

Jordan Maxham “Sun Machine” Part

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016


Prepare for one of the gnarliest parts you will probably see this year. Jordan Maxham comes through with the goods in his “Sun Machine” section. You might remember him from Ty Evans’ We Are Blood video in which he chucks himself down El Toro a good few times battling a massive frontside flip. It must be one of his go to tricks as the Grizzly Grip rider has also been on Jim Greco’s House Of Hammers feature What’s A Guy Gotta Do where he frontside flips over an eighteen stair handrail. He isn’t just the one hammer kind of guy though, he shows he’s got some tricky ledge techniques in his bag as well. Not going to spoil anything but just wait for that final trick, madness. The clip was released through The Skateboard Mag website and will probably be one of the most watched clips this week.

Flo Mirtain’s “Mall Grab” Part

Saturday, May 7th, 2016




I know this Flo Mirtain’s “Mall Grab” Part came out a couple of days ago, but for those that didn’t manage to see it first time around like myself, here it is now. The technical capabilities that Flo Mirtain has is incredible. I mean he’s a magician, not many people can execute the kick-flip and heel-flip game to a high level. This part has come at a perfect time too as the sun in Manchester is finally making regular appearances and with the lighter days there is plenty of time to go skating. That’s my weekend hype sorted, you must be crazy if it hasn’t inspired you too.


It’s no secret that Flo rides for Cliche Skateboards, if you fancy grabbing a Cliche deck as your next board then do so now…
