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!   

 

 


Black Sheep Shop Riot 2014

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Check the clip below to see how the Black Sheep tore apart Prevail Skatehouse in Poole at the Vans Shop Riot 2014. This year we managed to get together enough DOGGERS for a Black Sheep Shop Riot A and B team. As with the previous Shop Riots through the years the skating was top class, everybody was going for it and getting things on lock in the warm up ready for the qualifying heats, the skating seems to be getting better and better each year so well done to all who were on form! After a hectic afternoon we were down to the final three shops, Skate Pharmacy, The Ledge and our Black Sheep A team to battle it out for that lucrative number one spot!  The A team managed to get a well deserved 2nd place, narrowly missing out to Skate Pharmacy to take the top spot! The lads will be taking home £600 between Jiri Bulin, Eddie Belvedere, Rob Smith and Rikk Fields. The B team also smashed it but unfortunately didn’t manage to place in the top 3 but big up to Andy Scott, Gary ‘Woody’ Woodward and Reiss Johnson for there effort.  We already cant wait for the 2015 series where we will be back and keener than ever!

-Who’s your favorite Black Sheep rider and who’s the worst?

Scotty, you never know when you will see him and what he will do.

 Polish George. Haha only joking. There isn’t a bad team member.

 

 

-Dish some dirt on your fellow Black Sheep Riders?

Ollie can’t piss straight

 

-Give us a little bit of your skate history from in and around Manchester. Where did you grow up skating and with who?

 Grew up skating Bones Bolton with Eddie, Scotty, Ollie, and loads of others . slowly started coming into Manchester the more I learned to skate “street”

 

-Childhood heroes in skating?

Scotty, Avi, Pontus alv, Ali Boulalla, John Cardiel

 

-Your one of them annoying multi talented doggers who not only skates all the time but also makes music, edit/film etc… so tell us what your working on right now and music/projects to look out for etc?

PFFWWW, where do I start. I just finished a series of video’s for the Black Sheep along with an intro.

I’m Doing a lot with CRV WKD, we just got our website live, I’m trying to gather loads of content for that, also Ive been doing a lot of graphics work for new T-Shirt/hoodie’s

We also have a top secret project coming up soon that will blow some minds,

I just made the CRV WKD drive edit and made all the music for it which was a lot of fun.

Along with an advert for our new T-shirt graphic that is available online.

Ive been working on a Black Sheep X p.u.m.f  X Carve Wicked DVD that just premiered at the Christmas party.

Also I have been Dj’ing out a lot, and working on an album slowly but surely. I really want to Concentrate on this but it takes 100% of your effort and you cant have other things going on in your mind, you need a clear head to get creative and make something different, there’s so much music out there these days. so it seems like I have to finish my other stuff first. But yeah look out for all that shit!

 

 

-You’ve currently relocated to the big smoke with your good lady, what’s noticeable different between the Manchester and London scenes, good and bad?

To be honest when I’m in London its usually in between trips so when I’m in London I just chill at my lady’s place and don’t go out much, Play with the puppy, work on edits/music/CRV etc.

Good things are that there’s always something going on, and there’s so many more opportunity’s with everything.

Bad things is getting around takes hours, and its really busy full of people.

 

 -Why is Black Sheep the best shop and team?

Best shop because we are not trying to be anything, we are a skate shop that loves skateboarding and skateboarders, We don’t have to try and be cool and put up an image, we just do it, fuck political bollocks, at the end of the day Its skateboarding, we all started because it was fun, and that’s the way its kept at the black sheep.

 

Oh and best team because we have a man for every job, we got a vert skater, a guy who lands everything, some little tech head, a retired skater who can do back 360’s first go, Whatever we got it.

 

-Rob Smith words of wisdom?

You cannot achieve the impossible without attempting the absurd.

 

-What’s next for Rob Dogger Smith?

Who knows, Ive always got some new idea. My goal is to film a 100% street part, I want to have a song released on a record label. Make more clothes with my sewing machine, Make a film. Maybe even make a dogger fragrance for men why not!

HA! Peace out!
