New Jake Potts Part

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

 


 

If you saw Jake Potts on the streets of Manchester when he wasn’t out skating then you may assume he was a member of the Made In Chelsea crew as his dress sense is off the wall. If you saw him on the streets skating then that would be a different story, he is one of Manchester’s youngest rippers and has proved himself with this long awaited part that showcases the true skills he has. I’m a fan and have been from the start, his mad style combined with the unusual but yet technical trick selection is powerful. He’s only going to go on and get better and better. The highlight for me from this part is the wall-ride shuv out, now that’s something that I will never be able to understand. I really enjoyed this section, the music is on point, the skating includes a variety that only a few can produce and it is generally just a good watch. Hopefully they’ll be more edits to come from Jake Potts in the near future but for now enjoy this current one.

For nearly a year now the Ride Channel have been posting a series of edits up on their site called the ‘Open’ edits. These clips are from shops not just in the USA but from all around the world. The idea was to show the independent shops that support skateboarding in their community and also the riders and staff that make these shops the backbone of the skateboard scene, and yes you guessed it, it was our turn for the Ride Channel Open edit ! Thanks to the camera and editing skills of Mr Phil Harvey, he has treated us to nearly four minutes of Black Sheep action! Jiri Bulin kicks things off with some raw street hammers before Lewis Threadgold shows us how to properly do a load of wallie and wall ride variations! Josh Bentley mixes old spots with new, a sick line at Manchester’s newest DIY spot and a huck down the infamous grizzly stairs. Stu Reynolds after that proves that 40 is the new 20, then Lucien Costello shows us the talents of Manchester youth on the rise! Seb Batty makes light work of one of the highest ledges in town! Nick Stannerz and Sexual Stu keep the mosh alive with a quick line each on urbis.  Rikk Fields throws some of his footage in from his recent exploits in Hong Kong while Jake Potts keeps it local with an added Barcelona banger! Badman Barrett gets tech at Stockport’s finest ledge haven, then there’s strictly business as Reiss Johnson and Andy Scott take it to the vert! Harry Lintell comes through with even more mesmerizing street antics before Eddie Belvedere takes on some Cornish concrete! Rob Smith ends the show in fine fashion, gnarly drop ins, street lines and flying high at Stockwell! Big thanks to Phil Harvey for putting it together, Rybo, Armani Rochford and Isaac Wilkinson for additional filming. Big shout out to MC DRS for providing the soundtrack and also to the Ride Channel for having us on! So what you waiting for click play now!

Jake Potts ‘Too Right’ Part 8

Friday, June 6th, 2014

 

Our next section from the ‘Too Right’ video is the little ripper Jake Potts. A Manchester local from Crumpsall, this guy has it all from a sick style to an endless bag of technical tricks.  You don’t find many 16 years old with as much skill as this kid on a skateboard!  Watch his section above to understand what I’m saying. He is also a very polite young chap and would like to thank Phil Harvey, Rybo and Dan Carpenter for filming his part and Rob Smith for editing it and making it happen! Keep your eyes peeled for a Manchester skate scene video called ‘Hype Ting’ which will be dropping at the end of this year/early next year where you can catch more action from The Black Sheeps youth Jake Potts!

If you’ve not ventured to this new skatepark on steroids we suggest you get planning your next road trip. The place is mental at 50’000 sq ft which now claims the UK’s biggest indoor park plus with plans already afoot to add an additional 30’000 sq ft this place will end up straight up bonkers!
