Lucas Beaufort A Very Special Board Series

Friday, October 15th, 2021

Proper stoked on this one! We’re very proud to announce that Black Sheep Manchester have teamed up with one of our favourite artists for the Lucas Beaufort A Very Special Board Series.
Back during the initial Covid 19 global lockdown, French artist Lucas Beaufort connected with 9 independent, skater-owned stores across the globe and floated the idea of creating the Lucas Beaufort Very Special Board Series that you can see in the animated video by Jack Hyde above. The idea was to celebrate the cultural significance of the independent skate shop by creating a unique run of boards featuring Lucas Beaufort’s much-loved art.

Lucas Beaufort A Very Special Board Series

Hailing from Cannes, France, Lucas Beaufort‘s distinctive artwork has appeared alongside many brands within skateboard culture over the last two decades.
Lucas Beaufort’s collaborations have spanned the spectrum of the skate world with board graphics for the likes of Almost Skateboards, Sk8 Mafia and Zero, textile work for Vans and North Face and cover art for German skate mag Solo, to name but a few. You’ll definitely be familiar with Lucas’ work but if not, (or you want to see more of it) check out his website at www.lucasbeaufort.com

To return to the matter in hand, the Lucas Beaufort A Very Special Board Series features bespoke graphics on Generator wood for the following stores: Antisocial (Vancouver, Canada), Slappy’s Garage (San Diego), 303 (Denver), Working Class (Moncton, Canada), Nozebone (Paris), Uprise (Chicago), 242 (Geneva, Switzerland), Lockwood (Antwerp, Belgium) and of course, ourselves here at Black Sheep Store in Manchester.

Each participating store will receive one complete set of all 9 boards and a full stock of their own particular bespoke board.
Be warned though: Lucas Beaufort’s art work is extremely popular, we have limited numbers of the Black Sheep board, and these will fly out.
If you’re keen – don’t sleep.
Our Black Sheep board from the Lucas Beaufort A Very Special Board Series will come in an 8.1″, an 8.25′ and 8.5″
You know what to do.

Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards

Thursday, September 2nd, 2021

Well, it’s been a long time coming but finally Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards. UK-based British skateboarders turning pro for American board companies is still very rare, (was Kyron Davies the last one?) but with Harry it was only a matter of time.
Funnily enough, Harry filmed the ender for his 2011 Sidewalk magazine ‘In Progress’ part exactly ten years ago, (September 1st 2011) so it’s pretty wild that 10 years and 1 day later, his name will finally adorn a pro model. As a long-time Black Sheep family member who has been tied into everything we do for a decade at least, it definitely feels great to legitimately be able to say out loud that Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards.
Whatever your views are on the current situation of wider skateboarding culture in 2021, it’s going to take a pure bellend to question Harry’s right to this one. I mean yeah, it’s Real Skateboards, one of the first post Bones Brigade/post Steve Rocco skater-owned brands with a heritage stretching back to 1991 and founded by Tommy Guerrero and Jim Thiebaud but, on the other hand, this is Harry fucking Lintell we’re talking about.
Before I get too carried away force feeding you nuggets of video history let’s all just take a minute, breathe in and reflect on how fucking cool this is. A kid from Ashford in Kent, ‘discovered’ via a DVS get yourself sponsored contest in Sidewalk magazine, who went on to ride for a number of board brands through his friendship with all of here at Black Sheep (Jart, then Superdead) has gone on to move to Manchester, make waves globally and end up with a pro board on probably the most venerable skater-owned skate company on the planet. And we had to pretend we didn’t know about it in order to pull off his in-store board release party that happened tonight (Sept 2nd 2021). What a fucking trip.

You can buy yourself one of Harry’s boards (which will sell out very quickly make no mistake) by clicking below. You know what to do.

Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards

With the above said, and in celebration of the fact that Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards, allow me the liberty of throwing a few possibly lesser known Lintell bangers at your eyes because, well just because…

First up, Harry’s 2011 Sidewalk ‘In Progress’ referenced above – the 5050 on the kinked subway rail in Sheffield was filmed on Sept 1st 2011 – quite the coincidence.

Next up, a pretty obscure one that I’m assuming many people won’t have seen but that absolutely deserves a re-watch. This is the i-Path shoes entry for the 2010 Big Push and Harry’s final trick in Leeds is still FUCKED 11 years later. The video is set to play from the start of Harry’s section but the whole piece is worth your eyes.

Next up is Harry’s Volcom ‘True to this’ part filmed by long-term friend and cohort Kevin Parrott. Again, watch this, consider the fact that it’s 6 years old and weep at the knowledge that Harry did the switch flip over the rail at Southbank on three separate occasions.

And last but by no means least and probably the least obscure of all the UK-based legacy parts from Harry’s back catalogue – his section from Cover Version by Kevin Parrott and Dan Magee.

Obviously there are a ton of other Harry Lintell parts out there – hit Harry’s name earlier in this sentence to peep those.
And now, without further bollocks – see below for the first Real video and then go bask in the reality that Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards. Esse quam videri, innit?


Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax

Monday, August 2nd, 2021

Can’t fuck with Harry now can you?
Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax is the latest northern-focused mind-melter from Black Sheep family member Mr. Harry Lintell.
Filmed over the last year in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and various other northern cities – this is the fruit of Harry’s next level ability and the removal of mainstream security from shit loads of spots during the Covid lockdown.

With long-time Mancunian film maker Sean Lomax behind the lens and Harry in front of it, this was never going to be anything less than brilliant and, surprise, surprise – that’s exactly what it is – brilliant.
It’s literally just dropped on Thrasher’s YouTube channel so we’ll keep the chat to a minimum – go watch Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax right now. It’s a belter!
Big up all involved.

One brief thing that made us laugh was the switch backtail in London, which isn’t exactly in fitting with Thrasher’s blurb about filming locations but hey, it’s only one trick and the ender’s filmed in a carpark in Stockport so, whatever…

Also, just for good measure, after you’ve watched Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax, give your brain a reminder of another Lintell – Lomax collaboration. See below.

March roundup: Ace trucks and Krooked skateboards

Sunday, April 25th, 2021

Steady month for videos so far with Ace trucks and Krooked skateboards surfing the momentum of Quasi’s April opener. First up (there) is a belter of a montage from Ace trucks featuring their diverse team. Enjoi’s Danish superhuman Didrik ‘Deedz’ Galasso opens it open with a brace of insane looking spots and a cameo from fellow Dane and Polar skateboards rider Ville Wester. What follows is 8 minutes of short contributions from the likes of Leo Baker, Max Palmer, Raven Tershay, Ronnie Sandoval, Palace skateboardsCharlie Birch and our very own Black sheep family member Harry Lintell. If this one doesn’t get you interested in swapping your undercarriage up and trying out Ace trucks then your eyes are probably made of chewing gum.

Next up is another unbelievably fantastic release from DLXSF’s Mark Gonzales led vehicle Krooked skateboards. ‘Magic Art Supplies’ is nominally an introductory vehicle for Krooked skateboards new blood Eddie Cernicky and Caleb McNeely, both of whom come through hard. Cernicky opens this 18 minute banger up with a brace of insane wallride tricks and heavy OG San Francisco spot lurking, (think China Banks, EMB and the hills). Caleb McNeely’s part serves as his official welcome to the team and delivers, with everything from 360 flips over full sized bins to a new variation for the weary JKown gap. Good shit.
There are little Gonz clips in between each part, some of which looked to have been self-filmed on his laptop, plus the best frontside invert you’re likely to see a 50 year old do this decade.

With the above said, whilst this is presented as an intro to Krooked skateboards newest riders, it is Krooked skateboards OG Mike ‘Manderson’ Anderson who takes the last 5 minutes with a full part of epic proportions. Despite being incredible forever, Manderson is a somewhat underappreciated and under the radar figure we feel, but this part will more than do the shouting that he’s too modest to do for himself.
Basically – fucking hell! You’ll know when you see it. Insane.

Go peep our huge range of Krooked skateboards if this one’s got your toes itching.
Enjoy the sun!

Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague with Munro and Barney Page

Tuesday, January 5th, 2021

Harry Lintell in Milan anyone? Vague magazine starting 2021 off with bang courtesy of Black Sheep family member Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague, alongside Charlie Munro and Barney Page. We’re not really sure if it’s appropriate to wish you all a Happy New Year seeing as our ever capable government have just locked us all in the house again but this will occupy 5 minutes where you’re not fretting about bog roll at least.
Hairy Lentils footage is always a treat, so seeing his ridiculous skills set alongside the equally mental abilities of UK cohorts Barney Page and Charlie Munro, is just adding delicious cherries to an already scrumptious skateboard cake. (Where am I going with this…?)

With UK-import and firm VX1000 favourite Quentin ‘@pertharms’ Guthrie behind the camera, you should know already that the filming and editing in this will be seamless and focused on showing the skating in the best possible light, which is sadly less common than it ought to be these days.
If you’re keen to see some of Quentin’s previous releases after watching this banger – we’d recommend starting with his 2016 maiden voyage (as far as UK footage goes) in the shape of ‘Brexit’ below.
If you enjoy that, (which you most definitely will) – head over to his pertharms YouTube channel for more.

Anyway, to return to the matter at hand, namely Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague: as you’d expect Harry royally fucks shit up, opening up the clip with a brace of tasty lines and introducing Mister Page and Munro who also deliver hard on the footage front. The UK trio are also joined by Milan resident and Baker skateboards pro Jacopo Carozzi who drops a line oozing with style and grace. Interestingly for a Milan clip, ‘Travel Corridor’ has minimal Milan train station plaza footage and offers up a bunch of new (to me at least) amazing spots from elsewhere in this Italian metropolis.
Two immense thumbs up for UK Primitive and New Balance Numeric rider Charlie Munro’s ender too – did somebody say ‘pinch’?
That’s it for now. Stay safe everyone.

Black Sheep family member Jiri Bulin for Piilgrim clothing

Wednesday, July 1st, 2020

 

Stoked on this for all kinds of reasons but not least as it sees Black Sheep family member Jiri Bulin take the curtains. ‘Chrysalis’ is the suitably psychedelic latest release from Mark Kendrick’s ethically-minded clothing brand Piilgrim. For those of you who don’t recognise Mark’s name – he’s been a face on the UK skate scene for many years, as both a ripper in his own right and the man behind the camera.
Piilgrim’s mission statement is to create clothing using ethical processes and to attempt to reduce waste involved to as close to zero as possible. Highly commendable stuff indeed.

For a more in-depth insight into Piilgrim and Mark Kendrick’s back catalogue of video produce to date – hit the link earlier in this sentence and read the interview that Jenkem Mag did to coincide with their online premiere of Chrysalis back in the darker depth of the Covid-19 lock down era.

 

Anyhow, onto the meat of this particular sandwich, (vegan meat substitute that is obviously). Chrysalis serves up a veritable smorgasbord of North West related rippers including Black Sheep family member Jiri Bulin, plus the likes of Keanu Robson, Zach Riley, Ricky Davidson, Jeremy Jones, UK legend Franklin Stephens plus recent US additions Corey Duffel and Pat Burke. The whole thing is absolutely banging from start to finish and all involved deserve hearty back slaps. If you missed the online premiere – now’s the time to wise your eyes up. Go peep.

 

In related Jiri Bulin news, our very own Czech Manc, his lovely family and an assortment of local heroes have also been hard at work during lock down creating DIY gold in otherwise unused space. If you’re keen to get involved with that project, either by donating funds, materials or your labour then go check out the Instagram account @beesidediy and/or sling them some funds through their Go Fund Me here.

 

Jiri is sponsored by Black Sheep, Toy Machine, Pig Wheels, Etnies, Theeve trucks and Piilgrim clothing.

etnies Skateboarding crew hit Malaga

Sunday, January 26th, 2020

Spain’s Costa Del Sol has long been a place of pilgrimage for skateboarders. Its mix of guaranteed good weather, spots galore and the generally relaxed Spanish attitude to the use of public space has cemented it as a tour staple and last week saw another chapter added to this as the refreshed etnies Skateboarding crew hit Malaga and the surrounding areas to come up with this tasty little treat.
‘Skating through Costa Del Sol’ sees a select cadre of etnies current skate team hitting up spots both new and established, following a path well-trodden by both the etnies brand, and skateboard culture as a whole for the last twenty years. Along for the ride in a camera-wielding capacity were UK skate heads Mike Manzoori and Kevin Parrott plus Element skateboards rider Nick Garcia, Spanish etnies head David Castells, Moroccan ripper-on-the-rise Nassim Lachhab and the latest quick-footed addition to the etnies crew, Finland’s Eetu Toropainen.

 

 

For those of you who don’t recognise some of the names involved in this one, check out the recent etnies release TRANSITOIRE which introduced Moroccan-born Nassim Lachlab to the global team, for a heads up on why this frizzy-haired ripper is currently makes waves globally. You can also read an excellent interview with Nassim Lachlab here courtesy of Free Skate Mag which tells his story of coming up in Rabat, Morocco, before moving to Barcelona and being recognised globally.

As for David Castells and etnies newest addition with the bound-to-be-incorrectly-spelled name Eetu Toropainen – the Costa Del Sol piece at the start ought to fill you in on their worthiness for free shoes methinks.

 

 

etnies is a one of only a few skater-owned shoe brands still out there killing it in the 21st century and their roots run deep with three decades of contributions to skate culture. As is always the case with these blog posts, what began as a simple decision to hype this latest etnies video slowly turned into me getting lost in the YouTube vortex so, if you’ll bear with me, here are a few etnies scented fruits that I rediscovered along the way that you can enjoy after watching the current etnies Skateboarding crew hit Malaga.

First off, any post mentioning etnies is duty bound to point all of your eyes at their timeless 1995 inaugural full-length video (released on VHS of course) – the truly epic etnies High 5. If you’ve never watched this before, stop whatever it is that you’re doing and paper over these cracks in your skate education right now.
Aside from Tom Penny‘s first ever full-length part, it also contains the likes of Eric Koston, Peter Smolik, Chad Muska, Jamie Thomas and Marc Johnson to name just a few. Sadly, all of the full-length uploads that I can find of this have had most of the music muted for copyright reasons, so watch the Penny piece below first, then follow the link in this sentence to watch the whole (albeit slightly altered) etnies High 5 video. This came out 25 years ago!!!!

 

 

 

 

Obviously with a history as heavy as etnies is I could’ve picked any number of other archive classics to regale you with here but I’ve plumped for an often forgotten 2010 online release from the now defunct TWS Magazine.
etnies contribution to Transworld’s ‘Skate & Create’ series predated the current nostalgia for all things 1990s by half a decade, was filmed on 90s camera equipment and features a true to life mock up of the OG World Industries park. Next level content this, authentic 90’s clothing, Rick Kosick and Shiloh Greathouse cameos, a Wu Tang soundtrack, etc, etc. So, so good. (Side note: this one was also filmed/edited by Benny Magliano who went on to make videos for Hockey, Supreme and various others).

 

 

Last but not least – if all of this has whet your appetite for more Costa Del Sol spots and skating, then cast your eyes over this 2014 Malaga trip video featuring Black Sheep family member Harry Lintell, along with Nick Remon, Korahn Gayle, Nicky Howells, Mark Baines and etnies global rider Barney Page.
Now book your flights to Malaga!

With that done – why not head over to our site and pick yourselves up some etnies kicks? We have a huge sale on footwear right now so dive in and fill your boots.

Vans Shop Riot UK 2019 – Graystone Action Sports Manchester

Friday, October 18th, 2019

Vans Shop Riot UK 2019 – Graystones Action Sports Manchester
This has been said many times previously but it absolutely deserves reiterating: Vans Shop Riot is hands down the best event in the UK skateboard calendar. There is a lot of talk from a lot of brands about the cultural value and necessity of supporting core skate stores but there is only one brand who actually put their money where their mouth is and that brand is Vans.
We can argue all day about the relative ‘legitness’ of the myriad skate shoe brands in our universe if you like and, judging on Instagram battling, people love to, but one, simple, undeniable fact remains.
Only Vans are prepared to put their hands in their pockets and back up the rhetoric year after year with an event that brings the sadly dwindling number of UK skateboard shops together to create a space for localism to be celebrated, skaters both known and unknown to shine and, more importantly, still manage to keep things 100% skate in the process.

 

 

For those of you not clued up as to what Vans Shop Riot is, here’s a very brief summary.
Vans invite skate stores from across our country (and our European counterparts) to come together for a shop team event every year. The idea is simple: without skate stores, skateboarding culture is screwed, so why not create an event that allows all the major stores responsible for nourishing their local skate communities to gravitate towards one place for a weekend? Vans fork out for hotels, food, booze and the venue and the crews come to rip purely based on the love and respect that they have for the skate shops that support them. In the simplest terms – it’s on some Robin Hood shit. You get me?

 

 

If my slowly disintegrating memory is correct, the recent Vans UK Shop Riot 2019 Graystone Action Sports Manchester event marked the 11th anniversary of Van’s commitment to celebrating the lifeblood of our skateboard scene and what a weekend it was. Vans UK masterminds Olly Wright, Manhead, Matt Lloyd, Amanda Destroyed Brains, Ralph Knackered Hip and various others held the reigns and curated a banger of a weekend.
Free booze from Northern Monk (who doesn’t love their 2% IPA?), free BBQ chomp, Blast skates pinatas, a warm up sesh at the Pump Cage and a Saturday at Graystone watching the best humans from the best shops in the country go in – I mean, you’d have to be an utter bellend not to enjoy that, wouldn’t you?

The answer to that question is a resounding ‘yes’ just in case you were wondering.
As defending champions, the Black Sheep Family came out swinging, qualifying in first coming into the semi finals but you know us, as the Kersal Massive said “we dont fuck about”. With that said, when the final was finally finalised, nobody was going to argue with Flatspot’s position as Vans Shop Riot 2019 winners – the Devon cream tea heads went in – fair play.

 

 

I could ramble on all day about this but really, you might as well just watch the excellent Ryan Gray crafted video at the top of this guff and decide for yourself.
As a completist of the highest order, I’d be remiss if I didn’t give you the full list of attendees as you’re very probably not going to see them anywhere else so…
If we work on the proviso that the eventual winners were in reverse order:
1st Flatspot
2nd Black Sheep
3rd Slick Willies
4th Lost Art
4th 5050

That then means that the full results are as follows (according to the score sheets).
6th The House
6th Freestyle
8th Sessions
9th Forty Two
10th Skate Warehouse
11th TR7
12th Kultivation
13th Flavour
14th Big Wooodys
15th Lariatt
16th Ideal
17th Welcome
18th Decimal
19th Exist
20th Brixton’s Baddest
21st Cardiff Skate Club

 

 

So there you have it. Absolute banger of a weekend for all involved. Never ending big ups to all the Vans heads for making this happen year after year. Even heavier big ups to all the shop crews that came and repped hard for the love and a special donation of knucks to our very own Rikk Fields who managed to break his ankle in the finals, carry on skating till the final whistle and then still drink a brace of booze before returning to grafter land.

If you want more, head over to the Vague Mag site for a full photo overview by skateboarding’s own Man Mountain Marko, the very venerable Leo Sharp and the equally venerable Rafski.

 

 

And then, seeing as how we didn’t win this year, scroll down and drink deeply from our victory in 2018.
We’ll be back in 2020 and this time we’re going to DESTROY you.

Landscape skateboards Seasons video – goodbye Landscape

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

Landscape skateboards Seasons video - goodbye Landscape landscape-seasons

 

 

With this week’s release of the latest Landscape skateboards Seasons video over on the Vague Mag site, came the sad news that this UK mainstay brand would be closing its doors for good.
Originally emerging from the ashes of the short-lived Fos brand Organic Skateboards that preceded it (see below for their only video release as Organic from the masterful ‘First Broadcast), Landscape Skateboards was officially announced back in 2003 with the release of their first full-length VHS ‘Portraits’.
Filmed and edited by the much missed Chris Massey, Portraits is rightly hailed as a UK classic. Featuring the original Landscape team of Olly Todd, Joel Curtis, Daniel ‘Snowy’ Kinloch and Toby Shuall, Massey’s premier Landscape release set the tone of the brand from the outset with a firm adherence to the ‘less is more’ principle and a focus on gimmick-free, stylish street skating.

 

Over the years since its foundation, many things changed at Landscape skateboards – team riders left, new riders joined and two other full length videos were released (see below), along with numerous tour clips and mag articles but the central philosophy behind Landscape always remained the same.

More recently, Landscape earned itself the moniker of ‘Mancscape’ due to the heavy preponderance of Mancunian based riders, including our very own Black Sheep family member Nick Stansfield and the one-man media enterprise that is Joe Gavin, to name just a few. This local connection adds even more poignancy to the news that Landscape is to join the many other now defunct UK brands in purgatory but its legacy will live on. And what better way to say goodbye than with a banger like this one?

Featuring parts from all the current team riders and a lovely dedication to Chris Barrett at the end (along with Chris Massey and Ben Raemers) – Joe Gavin and the boys have done themselves proud here and left the building on a highnote, or to quote the venerable Slap Forum – “They’ve taken the Heath exit…”

Fans of the brand who are keen to get their hands on some Landscape wood for the wall whilst they still can should direct themselves over to our webstore and pick up a Nick Stansfield pro deck, or even better, one of Landscape’s special Chris Barrett memorial boards which we still have in stock.
Don’t sleep though because when they’re gone, they’re gone and there will be no more restocks for obvious reasons.

 

 

We’re sad to see such a strong voice of the UK skateboard scene disappear but such is the nature of the over-saturated skateboard brand market these days. Any of you with an interest in UK skate brand history are advised to have a look at this heritage article cataloguing some of the other UK brands that have left the building over the last ten years or so.

Goodbye Landscape – you will be missed.
Now, why not treat your eyes to some archive Lanners video below, before you go drop some nuggets and pick yourselves up a piece of UK skate history?

The VHS show chat 21 years of Death Skateboards

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

The VHS show chat 21 years of Death Skateboards Nick Zorlac Dan Cates Mark Nicolson

 

The House skatepark’s very own UK skate history show is back and this time the VHS show chat 21 years of Death Skateboards with head honcho Nick Zorlac, long-time rider Dan Cates and video maestro Mark Nicolson.
As always with these VHS Shows, you get a very informal chat led by Man Mountain Marco himself Nathan Black that goes off on various tangents, starting with the early days of Zorlac setting up a distribution company simply because Consolidated skateboards were unavailable at the that time in the UK.

With Death being the longest running UK skate brand in history with 21 years under their belts there’s obviously a hell of a lot to talk about here, and the conversation covers everything from the infamous House of Doom in Harrow, to the various sketchy constructions built in their backyard, through to the vagaries of running of a UK skate brand that started out as a joke but ending up becoming a mainstay of the scene representing everyone from local rippers to global skateboard superstars.

 

 

Zorlac’s description of wanting to start a brand that was basically ‘The Spinal Tap of skateboarding’, only for it to go on to outlive all of the brands that started around the same period, is definitely inspirational and proof that if your love for skateboarding is strong enough that you can achieve pretty much anything.

 

If you feel like supporting the good guys at Death after listening to this one, then it’d make sense to go check out the huge selection of Death skateboards product that we’re currently holding and maybe picking up a pro board from Black Sheep family members and Death skateboard riders Rob Smith and Eddie Belvedere.

If you’re keen to follow Dan Cates into the skimboard rabbit hole though, I’m not sure that there’s much we can help you with there – other than pointing you towards the nearest wetsuit shop.

 

 

The VHS show chat 21 years of Death Skateboards Nick Zorlac

 

If you enjoyed listening to the VHS show chat 21 years of Death Skateboards, and honestly, it’s hard to think of a reason why you wouldn’t have, given the trio of venerable idiots involved in this 2 hour conversation about UK skate history, then we’d also strongly recommend taking a look at the previous three episodes.

Just to make life easier for you, if you scroll down, you can watch the three previous episodes in order featuring Ben Grove, James Bush and Callun Loomes of Get Lesta and Team GB member, Lovenskate and Converse Cons rider – the supernaturally talented Alex Hallford.
