Get Lesta Darling and Chocolate Bunny Hop

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2021

A little pre Christmas treat here with two full length videos dropping simultaneously. First up – Get Lesta Darling. The latest release from Callun Loomes premiered last week and dropped online today. (‘Today’ being December 21st.) If you’ve watched any of Callun and Get Lesta’s previous videos then you’ll have high expectations. Get Lesta are indomitable. Just when it feels like they’ve done what they can do – up pops another full lengther with tons of new spots and new faces to complement the back catalogue.
In some respects, Get Lesta Darling is classic Get Lesta. Parts with GL lifers like Kris Vile, Mark Stern, James Bush and Joe Marks plus newer recruits like Marcus Palmer, Lucas ‘Goose’ Healey and Alice Smith.
What you’re looking at here is 48 minutes and 37 seconds of pure, unadulterated UK skateboarding carnage. Way too much to go into specifics but fucking dope.
Handrails, bowls, ledges, crazy banks, men, women and children: all angles are covered. Do yourselves a favour and go watch Get Lesta Darling immediately.
Once you’ve done so, if you fancy discussing its relative merits with other geeks – get over to the UK Skate Forum and chat some shit.
Additionally, go check out the Skateboarder’s Companion interview with Get Lesta’s Callun Loomes here.

The second full length festive delight that dropped down the digital chimney today comes from Chocolate skateboards. Chocolate Bunny Hop is in the old mold. Strong skits, acting, appearances from Chocolate skateboards OGs, Spike Jonze on an exercise bike. You know the deal. Traditional Chocolate shit.
I shouldn’t really need to hype this one up really – it’s Chocolate – it’s got parts from recent additions James Capps, Erik Herrera, Jordan Trahan and Carlisle Aikens plus Jesus Fernandez, Stevie Perez, Kenny Anderson, Raven Tershy and Vincent Alvarez. What a line up. Go watch it – you’ll love it.

If that duo hasn’t sated your desire for new Splendid Eye Torture then here’s something else. A snide YouTube reup of Max Palmer and Cyrus Bennett’s post 917 board co Limosine’s first video.

And with that – Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
Let’s hope that whatever is coming next is less wack than this time last year.


March roundup: Ace trucks and Krooked skateboards

Sunday, April 25th, 2021

Steady month for videos so far with Ace trucks and Krooked skateboards surfing the momentum of Quasi’s April opener. First up (there) is a belter of a montage from Ace trucks featuring their diverse team. Enjoi’s Danish superhuman Didrik ‘Deedz’ Galasso opens it open with a brace of insane looking spots and a cameo from fellow Dane and Polar skateboards rider Ville Wester. What follows is 8 minutes of short contributions from the likes of Leo Baker, Max Palmer, Raven Tershay, Ronnie Sandoval, Palace skateboardsCharlie Birch and our very own Black sheep family member Harry Lintell. If this one doesn’t get you interested in swapping your undercarriage up and trying out Ace trucks then your eyes are probably made of chewing gum.

Next up is another unbelievably fantastic release from DLXSF’s Mark Gonzales led vehicle Krooked skateboards. ‘Magic Art Supplies’ is nominally an introductory vehicle for Krooked skateboards new blood Eddie Cernicky and Caleb McNeely, both of whom come through hard. Cernicky opens this 18 minute banger up with a brace of insane wallride tricks and heavy OG San Francisco spot lurking, (think China Banks, EMB and the hills). Caleb McNeely’s part serves as his official welcome to the team and delivers, with everything from 360 flips over full sized bins to a new variation for the weary JKown gap. Good shit.
There are little Gonz clips in between each part, some of which looked to have been self-filmed on his laptop, plus the best frontside invert you’re likely to see a 50 year old do this decade.

With the above said, whilst this is presented as an intro to Krooked skateboards newest riders, it is Krooked skateboards OG Mike ‘Manderson’ Anderson who takes the last 5 minutes with a full part of epic proportions. Despite being incredible forever, Manderson is a somewhat underappreciated and under the radar figure we feel, but this part will more than do the shouting that he’s too modest to do for himself.
Basically – fucking hell! You’ll know when you see it. Insane.

Go peep our huge range of Krooked skateboards if this one’s got your toes itching.
Enjoy the sun!
