December top 3 – Atlantic Drift, Skate Cafe and Blondey

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

It’s been a great month so far for UK-related video releases so here’s Black Sheep’s December top 3 – Atlantic Drift, Skate Cafe and Blondey.

 

 

First up, the latest in the Atlantic Drift series: Jacob Harris continues to disprove the tired moan that ‘the Internet is ruining skateboard videos’ by dropping yet another sublimely re-watchable clip via Thrasher Magazine.
The tenth Atlantic Drift sees the extended crew over in Russia sampling post-Soviet marble and some of the roughest looking bank spots this side of Blackburn. If you’ve watched the previous episodes of Atlantic Drift then you’ll know what to expect: if you haven’t – dive into the Atlantic Drift back catalogue here.
Once you’ve watched this month’s Thrasher cover star Tom Knox destroying Moscow, you could do a lot worse than to check out our massive range of Thrasher clothing (including a huge sale section) and/or pick yourself up some New Balance Numeric kicks and help support the dudes behind this pinnacle of Internet skateboarding. Who knows? They might even release them all on DVD one day.
Also, if you appreciate Photoshop comedy – go check out this Tom Knox/Mike Arnold merriment here.

Following that banger is the latest VX1000 drop from UK brand Skateboard Cafe entitled ‘Sonata’.
Coming in at a steady 10 minutes, this is another bog break worthy pause for anyone who has missed it so far.
Featuring the likes of Sam Nobbs, Ollie Lock, Francis Peters, Dom Henry, Korahn Gayle, Josh Arnott, Harry Ogilvie, Shaun Currie, Savannah Stacey Keenan and the stair chomping Layth Sami – this is Skate Cafe at its best: Bristol and London heavy, jazz music and archaic camera aesthetics. Can’t go wrong really.
Sit down and take a sip.

 

 

If you’re still hungry for UK related Internet enjoyment then look no further than Blondey McCoy’s first post-Palace skateboards full-lengther (well, Internet ‘full lengther’ at least).
Now you’re fucked if watching this makes you thirsty for a pair of his see-through adidas Skateboarding Superstar 80’s, as we sold out of them in 5 hours but, the video clip is still more than worth a watch.
He’s an divisive character is Blondey – to some he’s an over-privileged kid whose skateboarding is over shadowed by his fashion persona but, to just as many, he’s a UK based ripper following a sponsorship path almost unthinkable five years ago. Either way, he’s got a mean ollie impossible on him.
Still not keen on the Kanye track though…

With that said – whilst you can’t purchase his transparent skate shoes from us any more (unless there’s a post-Christmas re-stock) – you can still get yourself knee deep in solid adidas Skateboarding footwear as we have absolutely shed loads of it in stock.
Peep these Metropolitan adidas Superstar 80’s below for a similar vibe, only without the potential for showing off your verrucas.

Thames Bruv!

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014


Open up your mince pies and have a butchers at this! The Black Sheep are proud to announce that Thames clothing is exclusively  available online and in store now!



 


Thames is brought to you from the mind of  Blondey McCoy: a seventeen year old skateboarder from south London / north Lebanon who rides for Palace and Supreme, a Southbank local  who has used his full determination and effort to be heavily involved in the long live Southbank campaign. Blondey started his knack for creativity when he was fifteen, making funny stickers and T-shirts for his skate friends. Fast forward a year and Thames had started to grow into a fully-fledged clothing company that had support from Slam City Skates in London and Supreme in New York City. Thames’s roots are firmly presented as a by Southbank, for Southbank brand , admired in its tight community, worn by locals, designed by a young local who is a heavy active campaigner for the south bank scene. Although the fight to keep Southbank is not over, Blondey has put some of his motivation into Thames clothing  and looking at this first drop we think its going to become an iconic British brand.
