Portions with Charlie Birch, Lucien Clarke, Kyle Wilson and more

Saturday, March 6th, 2021

Straight up banger right here: Portions with Charlie Birch, Lucien Clarke, Kyle Wilson alongside a smattering of the UK’s best. London-based filmer and Palace contributor Austin Bristow has delivered!
This is no weak sauce mini clip – this is 21 minutes of some of best London skating yet.
Filmed over the last year (featuring many London tourist zones looking 28 Days Later), this has to be one of the best indy releases ever.
When you factor in a list of heads including Charlie Birch, Lucien Clarke, Kyle Wilson, Danny Brady, Chico and our own Nick Stansfield – you know it’s serious.
Aside from the very heavy Palace skateboards presence, you also get all manner of London-based rippers both established and new. The music is varied and unexpected in parts (A-HA you say?) and there are a ton of well known London spots getting crushed.
For a video like this to drop straight out of nowhere really is a testament to how fucking on it our national skate scene is right now.
Massive big ups to Austin ‘the silent giant’ Bristow and to all those involved in this one.
Absolutely incredible.

Portions with Charlie Birch, Lucien Clarke, Kyle Wilson

Given that recent Palace skateboards recruits Kyle Wilson and Charlie Birch bookend this 21 minute beast, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be looking at pro boards for both of them in the very near future.
Both more than deserved too – natural talent, graft and solid human beings: what more do you want?

If this one’s given you a thirst for more London-centric ripping from the mind (and lens) of Austin Bristow, why not make yourself remember stuff via a reup of his 2016/17 Regulate series for Jenkem?
Episode 1 is below.

Vans_Wear_Test_1

 

On Monday April 25th, The House of Vans London, hosted the official wear test for the AVE Rapiweld Pro and we were kindly invited to come along. Black Sheep representatives Tez (accompanied by young son and future ripper Reuben!) headed down with the shops newest rider Jordan Sharkey .Also in attendance were more shop owners and riders from other key stores from across Europe, who had also been invited to test the latest seamless AVE shoe for themselves.

The test would be taking place at the House Of Vans and also at two iconic London spots, Brixton’s Stockwell skatepark and of course Southbank. Joining the crew were some of the UK and European Vans team who got stuck in at all three locations. Our own Rob Smith smashed it throughout the day as did our new man Sharkey (more from him in the near future). England being…well England, the heavens eventually opened and cut the Stockwell session short but not before Rob smashed out a banging Miller flip.

Everyone headed to Southbank, the session was resumed and Sharkey took care of business with some sick tricks down the stairs, check out the edit below to see what I mean. Next it was time to head to the House Of Vans where people were treated to some beers and a fine spread of grub put on by Vans who were not shy at all with the hospitality. Big thank you to all the people at House Of Vans and Vans Europe for another enjoyable experience, shout outs to Sidewalk and CJ for photo duties.

Eric Koston Interview

Thursday, March 10th, 2016

 

 


 

I would like to thank Free Skate Magazine for releasing an interview with one of skateboarding’s biggest legends Eric Koston earlier this morning. Eric Koston has been a familiar face in the skateboard world for a huge number of years and he has definitely had a huge influence on me as a skateboarder and even as a person. This is probably because, from what I’ve seen anyway that he is one of the soundest dudes off his board but also when on his board he is destructible. Tackling any spot he is graced with, with a huge amount of style and technical ability. ERIC KOSTON RULES! I don’t want to give too much away in regards with what was spoken about in the interview but lets just say some current topics involving himself leaving Girl Skateboards and his new shoe release on Nike SB were spoken about. There are also some dope photos of the man himself skating one of London’s most infamous spots, South-Bank included as well as the edit featured above. Hit the link and have a read, what else will brighten up this average Thursday after all.
