Harry Lintell in Portugal, Plan B and Ben Broyd for OJ wheels

Monday, July 25th, 2022

July round up time with tons of banging video content encompassing everything from Harry Lintell in Portugal for Volcom, through to the latest release from skateboarding’s own faux angry Incel vibe company Hockey.
First things first though – Black Sheep Family member Harry Lintell in Portugal with Pocket Skate Mag.
Obviously this has been a big year for Harry what with his first Real Skateboards pro board dropping but, with the consistency with which he drops ridiculous footage, you’d be forgiven for thinking he’d turned pro ever year for the last decade. Alongside the always enjoyable Harry Lintell in Portugal, this Volcom x Pocket Skate Mag piece serves up 7 minutes of banging footy from the likes of Eniz Fazliov, Collin Provost, Dustin Dollin and Jorge Simoes to name just a couple.
It bears saying here too that for those of you unaware of Pocket Skate Mag until now – their skate video output is outstanding: in particular their amazing ‘Followed’ series.

Next up, another UK-related piece in the form of the recent Ben Broyd clip which sees him test-riding OJ wheels 95a ‘Nomads’ on a variety of crusty British spots. I’m yet to meet anyone unstoked by this softly-spoken maniac so, use your eyes and dive into the terrain you can unlock with slightly softer wheels.

If Ben Broyd is a little too wholesome for you then there’s always the (presumably) tongue-in-cheek school shooter vibe of Hockey who just dropped their latest full length. Whilst fans of ironic Ben Kadow and/or Spicy Kev will be left hungry (with one trick each), Diego Todd’s ender more than makes up for it.
With that said, so edgy is Hockey’s aesthetic (allegedly) that YouTube don’t allow embeds so follow the link here if you want to see Hockey X.

Penultimately, here’s a reminder that Plan B just (fairly unceremoniously) just released ‘Code’, their sixth full-length video (their second since the re-birth of the brand over a decade ago). With a video legacy including the likes of Questionable (1992), Virtual Reality (1993) and Second Hand Smoke (1994), Plan B was never going to have it easy when it came to living up to expectations. Due to this, in much the same way that 2014’s True produced in terms of amazing skating but not so much in cultural paradigm-shifts, Code delivers amazing sections (particularly from Trevor McClung, Chris Joslin and Plan B OG Pat Duffy) but is, ultimately, just another video. There’s no arguing with the skateboarding but some of the music and a lot of the editing left me cold if I’m honest. With that said – it’s still mandatory viewing.

Finally, and somewhat fittingly given the historical talk above, is Thrasher Magazine’s China Banks documentary.
Featuring shit loads of archive and never-before-seen raw footage, this is the definitive history of an SF street spot that has had a global influence on skatepark design for 40 years. Watch it!


February round up – Jake Wooten, Una Farrar, Cons x Krooked and more

Sunday, February 13th, 2022

Time flies when it’s bastard freezing eh? As such, here’s a February round up of content. These days it’s as though there are 5 sick videos dropping daily so it seems legit to do multi posts. Plus, we’ve slept on posting in February so far I guess, I blame the weather. Anyway, to the matter at hand: a February round up of recent content.

First up, is the video announcement that rubber-limbed transition slayer officially joined etnies (as of January 27th). If you’re aware of Jake Wooten’s previous behaviours, you’ll buzz off this power move. If you don’t already know who he is – get to know below. His etnies welcome part was filmed by Mike Manzoori too so there’s another bonus.

Once you’ve watched that, we strongly recommend catching up with Dime’s female representative and Vans head Una Farrar. Una has just dropped a short but banging section to coincide with landing the cover of new US publication Mess Skate Mag.

In related Vans video content news, the UK’s Skateboarder’s Companion magazine dropped a banger too. With Ben Broyd and Jordan Thackeray leading the charge – you know it’s going to be deece.

Next up in our February round up is the first (?) collab video of 2021.
Middle Earth serves up a Krooked skateboards rider captained clip to celebrate Mike Anderson’s Krooked x CTAS Pro Cons shoe. Alongside Mike you get Frank Gerwer, Brad Cromer, Eddie Cernicky, Raney Beres and Zered Bassett – so a half arsed shoe hawker this is not. Fire up the screens then get your nail scissors out – it’ll make sense later.

Penultimately, we come to Carharrt’s first video release in a decade. Inside Out is a slightly more cinematic take on a team video. Accidental Gullwing video references aside, there’s not a lot to dislike here. Go peep.

Last, but by no means, least comes a truly British clip courtesy of The Skateboarder’s Companion again. Stoked to see that they’ve resurrected the OG Sidewalk magazine ‘Raiders of the Lost Park’ series. Is there anything more authentically British than fannying around on dogshit council parks?
Thought not. Behold Mexborough in all its tin glory!

Rest in peace Bruce Kelliher AKA ‘Bruce the Ox’

And, as always, rest in peace to our dear friend Chris Barrett. Shine on mate.

Grey Skate Mag – Vans Bridget Video

Our own Black Sheep team rider Jordan Sharkey took on Marseille this January and (like always) Sharkey does not disappoint. Effortlessly skating huge spots, is there nothing this boy can’t do a flip trick over…? He’s just reminding us why he’s considered one of the finest at the moment in this Video: Vans Bridget.

 

Along with Jordan Sharkey Bridget features Ben Broyd, Shaun Currie, Denis Lynn, Victor Pellegrin, Jordan Thackeray and Josh Young. Watch to the end to see some heavy slams from these boys. Bridget is a film by Siruf F Gahan for Grey and Vans Europe. This edit is showcasing some real UK talent. Why not go see more skate films and art work from Siruf on his website.
