New UK skate magazine – The Skateboarder’s Companion

Big news this month with the release of the premiere issue of The Skateboarder’s Companion.
Headed up by long-term skateboard bods and former Sidewalk Magazine staff Leo Sharp and Ryan Gray, issue one sets out their stall with no punches pulled.
It’s been a long, long time since anybody could walk into a newsagents or a branch of WHSmiths and buy a national skateboard magazine eh?
The Skateboarder’s Companion is set to be a quarterly and will be available in limited numbers from skate stores (including us), available in magazine stockists across the country (see here for info on stockists) and also available in subscription format from their website –

The vibe of issue one places The Skateboarder’s Companion very much in the hot seat as a nationally-focused publication with skaters from all over the UK featuring on its glossy pages.
Equally as exciting is their immediate embrace of the female skateboard scene with more page and web space devoted to women than has been customary until very recently.
Put simply we’re backing this one hard, for that box fresh new mag smell alone, (although thinking about it, that’s almost glue-sniffing in some respects so take it easy).

Up top you can see the first exclusive video release from The Skateboarder’s Companion with a brace of banging footage from their inaugural trip up north featuring the likes of Denis Lynn, Dee Collins, Ben Leyden and more, crafted by long time lens man Mike ‘Tidy’ Pearson.
Extra points to those of you who can correctly name the video part/video/company that said Tidy video pays homage to. You’ll win precisely nothing but you’ll get bragging rights inside your own skull.

All that remains to be said is – search out a copy of The Skateboarder’s Companion for yourself before they’re gone and of course – follow them on their social channels.
Big up Geggs and Big L.
