Palace Skateboards Danny Brady

With the latest delivery from Palace Skateboards we’ve seen fit to relate what’s somewhat globally known as a London brand ting and show our love for the Northern Skateboarding connection that is the legendary Danny Brady.

 

For those unaware of Danny’s Blackpool roots and country boy done good in the big smoke, read on for a brief history of the original skate rat master himself T’Brady!

 

Personelly I met Danny when he first ventured out of his hometown of the English Paris and made his way through the door of the then heavily sessioned Bones Bolton Skate Park. Turning up with his older peers of a crew he was a tiny framed, flee type skater on a mission from open till close. It wasn’t long after his regular jaunts down to the Pheonix Nights of skateparks that Brady was receiving his packages to pick up courtesy of Blueprint flow.

 

Not only was Danny honing his non-stop skate rat style skills at our place he was getting coverage in locally produced scene videos like Nige Cowell’s “Northern Lights” and getting his first invites on team trips with the mighty Blueprint Skateboards team. Remembering back to the 2000’s when we were experiencing the fondly known “Tony Hawk boom” period and Blueprint being hands down the pinnacle of all things UK skateboarding. This early conception of a brand can be related to the hype you see nowadays for all things Palace Skateboards, just maybe without the re-sellers and crazy global dominance of the Triangle. So basically Danny has always been in the right place in terms of team influences and over the years has proved his worth for long term shoe sponsor Lakai, Royal Trucks and Spitfire Wheels.

 

 

 

So following on Danny’s rise from baggy panted, fat shoe wearing days Blueprint did the honourable thing and created Blackpool’s own very first professionally recognised skateboarder. In this period of filming for the very, very highly regarded Blueprint Lost And Found, both Danny Brady and fellow yoot on the come up Nick Jensen were turned pro after the DVD release. Between the two above mentioned names the future of UK skateboarding was dragged kicking and screaming into a new world. Consistency of technical smooth skateboarding along with skate rat mentality’s these guys set the bar for a whole new generation of UK skaters. The deservedly pro status seen Danny spending more time away from the trams of Blackpool and more scouring the London underground system with probably Dan Magee in hot pursuit. This part joins the dots to where Danny now resides in the Big Smoke and with the fall of Blueprint only someone like Lev (Palace owner and instigator) could recognise Danny’s youth like ability to keep producing undoubtedly the finest of English skateboarding chic.

 

 

 

Spending so much time skating, smoking and residing in the original PWBC residence no one could of predicted the next chapter for Danny and the newly formed Palace Skateboards.

 

Over the past few years since Palace Skateboards inception Brady has gone from strength to strength footage wise. He’s of the rare breed when less is more keeps you hungry for more. Along with that Northern charm and general good head on his shoulders Lev’s seen fit to pass team manager duties over To Danny. Can only imagine the ‘fun’ he must have dealing/organising the UK’s most misfits of skateboarding team members since the early Flip team days. Yeah Chewy is highly relatable to the young Tom Penny and the TM crown for holding down such a tight ill crew is highly commendable to Brady who also holds his own in amongst the pro ranks.

 

 

 

If you’ve read this far you may be wondering why the reason for a random Palace Danny Brady blog piece… To be fair it’s a pretty simple answer as I’d just re-read the mighty fine Free Skate Mag Brady interview and also seen Palace Skateboards announced this morning a very app-laudable £5o,000 plus donation to the Long Live South Bank campaign.

Amongst the tiny island skate mentality you hear Palace have sold out but those ‘adults’ amongst us will firmly take our flat caps off and see Palace for what it really is and what it’s always been. One straight up no bullshit skate company taking the proverbial piss out of this fashionista world and supporting home grown talent like no other brand in the UK can do. Serious props to the whole squad for just keeping it real in an industry that only dreams of being this successful without sucking the proverbial corporate slong.

Jiri Bulin’s ‘Lost Part’ Courtesy of Isaac Wilkinson

Jiri Bulin’s ‘Lost Part’

 

 

We are very please to share this special edit of Jiri (George) Bulin. What makes it special? Firstly, it is brought to you by two of our own Black Sheep family members Jiri and Isaac. This pair have a pretty cute history in skateboarding, this unlikely duo were more like brothers than skate companions. Before Isaac moved to London to peruse his filming these two spent so much time out skating and filming on the streets of Manchester you’d be surprised if you caught one of them without the other.

 

Secondly, this footage was collected over two years, from 2014-2016 to be precise. Not only that but the footage is from a bunch of different counties and cities. Hong Kong, Prague, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Vienna and London to name a few. Isaac had realized early on that much of Jiri’s footage was still yet to be used so he put them all in a this edit. However, he managed to totally forget about it… until now. Better late than never anyway.

 

I strongly recommend you watch this edit, not just to see the power house that is Jiri Bullin on a skateboard but Issac’s filming and editing talents that made him such an asset to the Black Sheep family.

Capital 04

The fourth installment from Austin Bristow’s Capital series is now online and once again it’s a bloody cracker. You won’t catch a better edit coming out of the big smoke at this current time. As always our shop rider Harry Lintell is unstoppable and is once again featured in the latest Capital 04 edit. It’s becoming a serious joke on how much footage Harry is producing, will this guy ever stop? I mean he has footage in pretty much every edit that is showcased and it’s not your average chilling skating either, he’s constantly killing it. This Capital 04 video also features some familiar UK skate faces such as Jak Pietryga, Sam Bottenberg, Jasper Woolf and Nelly Mayele. I’ve enjoyed each and every edit from these guys so far so lets hope there’s more to come in the near future. For now sit back, relax and enjoy some incredible raw street skating at its finest!
