Eddie Belvedere and Sam Mason hit Germany for Dickies

Monday, September 14th, 2020

Strong Black Sheep family representation here with Eddie Belvedere and Sam Mason joining forces with Cornish heads Rhys Bickmore and master lens man Matt Hunt.
Flucht aus England, (AKA ‘Escape from England) sees Captain Caveman, Simply Shred and crew hit up up the German city of Köln on a four day camping/skate mission.
This one was filmed after Covid restrictions had been briefly lifted in August of this year with the lads chomping at the bit to go anywhere with a modicum of liberty.
A quick ferry journey and camping chair chill and bosch (forgive the German pun) our intrepid group of goons were happily chewing on German architecture.
With Dickies (along with Mount Hawke and Blacksheep) funding this one, Eddie Belvedere and Sam Mason led the charge around Köln hitting up various spots, including the frankly amazing looking KAP 686 skate plaza (hit that link for more on that place).

Eddie Belvedere and Sam Mason

Eddie and co skate all manner of street spots, bringing with them that peculiarly British notion of ‘if it’s a bank, it’s a skate spot, even if it’s horrible’.
Some places you’ll recognise as they’ve appeared on some heavy videos in the past, whereas others are new to us and probably to you too. Based on this though, Köln looks like a decent choice for a skate trip, well as soon as we’re allowed the leave the house again anyway.

For those you who aren’t already aware, Matt Hunt (the guy behind the camera on this one) has been making UK skate videos for a long while so, if this floats your boat, go peep some more of his stuff.

Graystone Skatepark Manchester – Black Sheep Family

Graystone Skatepark Manchester – Black Sheep Family

 

One recent mid winter evening we where cordially invited to go check out the newest indoor skate park for Manchester. Graystone Action Sports Academy Manchester is somewhat different to the dark, dingy skate-parks we’ve all grown up with. Instead your welcomed with cleanliness, good lighting, one seriously impressive layout by the FourOneFour park builders and to top it all off you can enjoy some chef made food and (for the non-drivers) partake in an arrange of beverages.

 

 

We’ve been told there’s more to come from this Manchester based facility to add to the trampoline, snowboard foam pit jump and general craziness of the place. Expect a sprung floor insulation, ninja climbing centre, on site yoga classes and much, much more. At this point let me just state the square footage of the place still remains around 80% pure heavenly Russian birch skate-park paradise.

 

 


 

 

Huge thanks for the invite and session. Get your viewing pleasure on below and see the fruits of labour from that recent winter evening session. As you may be aware the #BlackSheepFamily go off at any given opportunity so it’s no surprise they bagged a minute and half’s worth of footage with more to spare.

 

Featuring Black Sheep Store team riders Harry Lintell, Seb Batty, Lucien Costello, Sam Mason and the latest young-gun recruit and all around terrain killer Leo James. All filmed in just a two hour session followed by beer, bants and fat cut chips for afters. Thanks again to Graystone Action Sports Academy for the hook up.

 

 

Props to Lewis Royden and Will Berry from Amfas Skateboards for the filming & editing duties.

Real Skateboards Known Associate Hermann Stene

 

Last year seen Real Skateboards ‘Known Associate’ rider Hermann Stene take the plunge and get in the van for his first US road-trip encounter with the ever powerful Real team. Following on from that they’ve seen fit to piece together the below edit as Hermanne carried on the street destruction to put out his ‘Known Associate’ for Real along with a few tricks from Black Sheep Family member Harry Lintell.

 

Expect to see more from all of the above as we suspect this Hermann edit below is just a taster of his ‘on plank skills.’ Also, Harry’s currently Stateside mixing it up with the GX1000 crew & Deluxe guys and so no doubt tearing San Francisco a new one so to speak.

Spitfire Wheels UK – Baton Edit

Friday, May 19th, 2017

 

The good folk at Shiner distribution and backers of Pixels TV sent the UK Spitfire Wheels crew out to Barcelona for a brief hard hitting trip. Footage was stacked and of course Black Sheep team rider Harry Lintell got more than involved in his casual nonchalant style. Go watch the edit below featuring Manny Lopez, Dylan Hughes, Joe Gavin and Ollie Lock filmed and edited by lennsman Austin Bristow.

 

Rad to see UK team riders getting the backing from skateboard wheels giants Spitfire Wheels and Shiner putting up the dough and orchestrating for the trip. Props all round to all involved in making this one happen and hopefully more to come!

 

Ps- Harry Lintell currently Stateside with the US Spitfire team so be sure to catch his happenings via Spitfire Wheels Instagram
