Rough Cut: Louie Lopez’s “West End” Part





Louie Lopez seriously ain’t no joke! As the tiny framed Flip Skateboard’s prodigy to full blown mind blowing Pro. Take the time to witness his silky smooth abilities on a skateboard and take a moment after each ridiculously trick and let them sink in.


Massive fans of his work here at The Black Sheep, the guy just ‘plays’ at skating and makes it look all to simple and fun. Mr Mellow laid back reflects consistently in his huge footage output.

Who else has put out the coverage of Louie!? He’s constantly on one and as the skateboard industry rumor mill is to be believed then his full forthcoming part for Converse Cons is going to be another mind blower!


Again it’s thanks to Thrasher Magazine for putting this remix ‘Rough Cut’ edit out. With over 20 minutes of futuristic skateboarding by Flip Skateboard’s finest. Bear witness and keep them peeled as they say for announcements of his up and coming Cons part. More info from us soon….

Daniel Pannemann For CONS Germany

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016


Daniel Pannemann has just released a part for Converse CONS Germany. This is a really dope part and Daniel shows us he has style for miles skating fast and fluidly. During the edit he skates some of the lesser known, more rugged and the not so welcoming spots that Berlin has to offer. This is the type of skating that’s really enjoyable to watch, and fair play, it takes the skills and the pop to skate those type of spots but the main highlight is the motivation that Daniel has had to get out of the comfort zone of the nice inner city spots and got out and into the vast roughness of the city. The edit also features guest tricks from Roland Hoogwater, Jonas Hess, Danny Sommerfeld and is finely edited by Jonathan Peters.

Cons Movements No0001

Thursday, December 31st, 2015





Cons Movements was filmed throughout 2015. Aaron Herrington and Tom Remillard, a couple of valuable members from their infamous team, a team that seems to be improving/growing as the weeks go by. They both managed to capture plenty of footage from all their travels in the past year, gathering enough footage to produce this powerful edit. The style of skating is current, although what’s amazing in my eyes are the spots they’ve managed to skate. They’re not your average spots that you’ll see in previous edits that have dropped this year, makes it fresh and new. Grab a brew, sit back relax and enjoy this new masterpiece.

Harry Lintell’s ‘True To This’ Volcom Part

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015


There’s no stopping our latest team rider Harry Lintell, smashing out parts like there’s no tomorrow. This guy is seriously on a mad hype. Constantly on the road living out of a bag this dude is living the life and would say he’s right up there in the UK’s most productive skaters at the minute. When he’s not on the road you can find him couch surfing in the city of Manchester, The Black Sheep’s back garden.



Harry’s hit the bulls-eye with his ‘True To This’ Volcom Part…


So our mate Harry, earlier this year he released a part to be proud of. It was a project him and Kev Parrott had been working on last year for Volcom Clothing, hitting up some iconic UK spots as well as some hidden gems. It has everything from gnarly rails to some technical lines so it will definitely appeal to almost every skater. It got my hyped anyway to go out and shred! It was advertised on almost every social media site so I’ll be surprised if you’ve not already seen it. It was also advertised on the infamous Thrasher Magazine’s homepage which is pretty good dam going if you ask me. Watch below and prepare to have your mind blown….



Pretty good right, the switch flip at Southbank also made it onto the front cover of Sidewalk Magazine as it should have done because it’s absolutely nuts. Surely he can’t keep this standard up, can we expect more this year from Mr Lintell? We definitely can as he’s already featured on a Converse trip ‘Braving The Cold’ and is currently on another filming mission with the lads somewhere in Europe. Can’t wait to see more of this raw ripper, keep up the good bloody work pal!
