February round up – Jake Wooten, Una Farrar, Cons x Krooked and more

Sunday, February 13th, 2022

Time flies when it’s bastard freezing eh? As such, here’s a February round up of content. These days it’s as though there are 5 sick videos dropping daily so it seems legit to do multi posts. Plus, we’ve slept on posting in February so far I guess, I blame the weather. Anyway, to the matter at hand: a February round up of recent content.

First up, is the video announcement that rubber-limbed transition slayer officially joined etnies (as of January 27th). If you’re aware of Jake Wooten’s previous behaviours, you’ll buzz off this power move. If you don’t already know who he is – get to know below. His etnies welcome part was filmed by Mike Manzoori too so there’s another bonus.

Once you’ve watched that, we strongly recommend catching up with Dime’s female representative and Vans head Una Farrar. Una has just dropped a short but banging section to coincide with landing the cover of new US publication Mess Skate Mag.

In related Vans video content news, the UK’s Skateboarder’s Companion magazine dropped a banger too. With Ben Broyd and Jordan Thackeray leading the charge – you know it’s going to be deece.

Next up in our February round up is the first (?) collab video of 2021.
Middle Earth serves up a Krooked skateboards rider captained clip to celebrate Mike Anderson’s Krooked x CTAS Pro Cons shoe. Alongside Mike you get Frank Gerwer, Brad Cromer, Eddie Cernicky, Raney Beres and Zered Bassett – so a half arsed shoe hawker this is not. Fire up the screens then get your nail scissors out – it’ll make sense later.

Penultimately, we come to Carharrt’s first video release in a decade. Inside Out is a slightly more cinematic take on a team video. Accidental Gullwing video references aside, there’s not a lot to dislike here. Go peep.

Last, but by no means, least comes a truly British clip courtesy of The Skateboarder’s Companion again. Stoked to see that they’ve resurrected the OG Sidewalk magazine ‘Raiders of the Lost Park’ series. Is there anything more authentically British than fannying around on dogshit council parks?
Thought not. Behold Mexborough in all its tin glory!

Rest in peace Bruce Kelliher AKA ‘Bruce the Ox’

And, as always, rest in peace to our dear friend Chris Barrett. Shine on mate.


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!
