Vital skate news From Sub Fifty, MUST READ!

Friday, November 20th, 2015


I’m pretty sure you’ve all heard about the new complications in skateboarding recently that includes some well known faces. Firstly the news broke out that Rowley left Flip Skateboards. A real shocker, but now adding to the pot of confusion is that Koston and Guy Mariano have departed from Girl. Kids and general forum waste-mans are going mad as we speak, brains rattling with thoughts on who each person will ride for next. Teary filled eyes are stalking the internet for that important information that’ll hopefully be released soon before the internet blows up.




Well the wait is over since Stannerz and bad man Barrett, after being stuck on Skype all night and day, can now announce that Sub Fifty (Stockports biggest and baddest brand) have three new additions to their infamous team. Yes you guessed it, Rowley, Mariano and Koston will now be seen skating the streets of Stockport with the dopest and best crew to grace skateboarding. Although it isn’t all joy, they had to make some sacrifices to the crew, Ben Rowles has been given the boot and John Bell is also off but has been given the role as team manager. As he’s always injured it’ll help build his body back up to normal strength and I’m pretty sure he’ll be back up in the ranks soon so no need to worry.

I’m guessing there’s only a small handful of skaters out there that haven’t heard of Sub Fifty so for those that don’t know this is what they’re about. Chris Barrett was first seen on the famous BBC show The Apprentice in 2005. Alan Sugar was more than interested in his business plan, making skateboarding fun again without any bullshit. From this Chris didn’t need to carry on with the show because he had already won. From the moment he walked through the door wearing his Black Sheep joggers, Fubu denim jacket, and Airwalk Beanie Alan was already on board despite his plan. Alan then decided instantly to invest in Barrett and the crew allowing them to make the first video ‘Wreck heads, fresh heads and piss heads’. Featuring the doped up dope crew Team Weed, John Bell, Ben Rowles, Tom Lowth, Stu Reynolds, Chris Barrett, Lil Dave and Stannerz. That video release went on to make millionsand the crew have gone onto win plenty of EMA awards and are currently living the lifestyle of the rich and famous. For those that don’t know what that’s like its simply the finest of Polish lager, spice and hotel de la Stocky Ledges.

What’s to be expected in the future from skateboarding’s best crew? Well Koston is currently working will Phil Harvey in mexico on his pro t-shirt, Mariano is currently discussing wages with Stu Reynolds (currently negotiating more than a crumb of sprayed weed a second that Stu first offered) then Rowley is out filming his welcome part already. It’ll have to be up to standard because these guys don’t mess about. Here’s a section of shredders that didn’t make the cut onto Stockport’s legendary team. Expect the best and you’ll succeed in the hard and tough life of skateboarding….
