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.

UK Primitive rider Charlie Munro scores two covers

Friday, May 1st, 2020

 

 

UK Primitive rider Charlie Munro scores two covers of two different UK skate magazines in April.
Bagging yourself two magazine covers in the same month is an achievement in itself but doing so whilst the entire country is under lock down is something that’s (hopefully) unlikely to be repeated any time soon.
We felt that this was worthy of a donation of virtual knucks to Cambridge-born ginger ripper and UK Primitive rider Charlie Munro really, and because, let’s face it – we’ve not really got much else to do than stare at skate clips right now have we?

For the sake of clarity – you can see both of Charlie Munro‘s quarantine-themed covers here: the first was the cover of Grey released in early April, followed yesterday by an equally banging cover of Vague. I’m almost certain that this is something that hasn’t happened previously – yeah there have been times when more than one skate mag has had the same person on the cover but I don’t think that it’s ever happened in the same month – and certainly not under the crazy circumstances that we’re living through right now.

 

 

 

 

Anyway with cyber props out of the way – might as well revel in a little bit of Munro juice really mightn’t we?
First rising to prominence via the Get Lesta series of videos, Charlie has subsequently gone on to achieve notoriety across the globe, be a semi-regular fixture amidst Thrasher’s never ending web output, and get a legit (non-distro) direct sponsorship deal from the skateboarding super team of the modern era – namely Primitive Skateboards. Not bad for a ginner eh?
With his two covers landing in our store right now – what better excuse to air a few banging parts from the Munro back catalogue?

Above you can see a couple of our favourite bits of Charlie footage from the Get Lesta era – including the one (at the very top) made to celebrate the release of the 2016 Get Lesta x Primitive skateboarding collab.
Below you can check out Charlie’s outstanding contribution to Kev Parrott and Dan Magee’s masterful independent release ‘Cover Version’ – it’s set to play from the beginning of Charlie’s section but honestly, just watch the whole thing, it’s amazing and Black Sheep family member Harry Lintell has the last part.

As well as all the above, here’s the clip from 2019’s UK visitation from the Primitive skateboarding crew – not bad for a few days eh? Whilst you’re at it – I’d recommend hitting up the hyperlink here too and watching the utter devastation that the Primitive lot brought to Bay Sixty6 back in August of 2019. Craziest demo I’ve ever seen, hands down.

 

 

 

 

Finally, for now at least – check out Charlie Munro in the latest video from Pocket magazine featuring him and a host of other European rippers tearing up the ridiculous marble spots of the UAE. I’m not convinced by trap music still but this clip’s a banger.

 

 

 

 

If all of this has whet your appetite to jump on some Charlie Munro related product, why not head over to our web store and check out the range of Marvel x Primitive boards that just came in? You know it makes sense.
