Nike SB Constant – new Nike SB video with heavy UK presence

Thursday, June 3rd, 2021

Nike SB Constant, what’s in a name eh? Constant as in ‘constantly releasing content’? Constant as in, ‘fuck Covid, Nike SB are still out filming?’ Maybe even, ‘Nike SB Constant, because there are mad rumours online’. I’m guessing it could be any/all of the above to be honest. If you pay attention to Instagram comment threads or the Slap forum then you might be aware of some of these Swoosh developments. Global brand leads moving on, ex Blueprint pros leaving, Olympians not wearing Nikes any more, etc.
Ultimately none of the above really means that much to the likes of you and I but it’s always interesting to speculate isn’t it?

Nike SB Constant

Nike SB would’ve been hard-pressed to drop a stronger two finger salute to the scurrilous rumours mentioned above than
with this video. This piece serves up 30 minutes of severe pisstake skateboarding. And when I say ‘pisstake’ I genuinely mean it.
This has to be hands down the most inclusive and diverse video Nike B have ever put out. From massive transition to manuals, a truly eclectic squad guarantees this a spot on the ‘web clips that qualify as actual videos’ list.
Grant Taylor kicks things off and shares the intro with Eric ‘I’m funny honestly’ Koston before Primitive ubermensch Carlos Ribeiro blows the doors off. This dude is supernaturally talented – so much innovative rail tech, crazy lines and the most composed style. Truly astounding. Sean Malto pops up during this barrage of Brazilian technicality, (weirdly set to a remix of Kenny Reed’s tune from New Deal’s ‘Seven Year Glitch’) but whatever: it’s cool to see Malto back again.
From there we are straight into an epic UK section featuring Atlantic Drift and Swoosh representatives Kyron Davies, Korahn Gayle, Casper Brooker, Kyle Wilson and Chris Jones. This is amazing to see – all five hold their own amidst probably the heaviest Nike SB video ever made so mad props to the lads. Buy Korahn a pint next time you see him.
Following the Uk contingent is Daan van der Linden who has been stuck on the injury bench a lot since joining Nike. As such, I’m unsure whether the footage on Nike SB Constant is old or new but either way, it’s a reminder why he’s just dropped his own fishing themed shoe. Ridiculous.
The bangers just keep on exploding with a solid Australian section featuring all manner of heads. Likewise, Nike SB’s female team get plenty of shine with Nicole Hause in particular dropping heavy street and transition footage alongside Elissa Steamer BGPs. Can’t ask for more can you?
Rightful holders of the Nike SB Constant curtains are Polar Skate Co pro and qualified Swedish Olympian Oski and the superhuman Grant Taylor. It’s pointless to even begin to try and express how off the charts this section of the video is. Jaw dropping, literally. Just go watch it – you’ll soil yourselves.

Til Death – Nyjah Huston for Nike SB

Til Death – Nyjah Huston for Nike SB

 

nyjah-huston-til-death

 

 

Well here it is! Nyjah Huston just changed the skateboarding game with this one. No matter what your thoughts are on young Nyjah you can’t deny his progressive ability on a skateboard.

 

As expected Nyjah goes all out assault mode for his latest Nike Sb ‘Til Death’ edit. Witness below for next level handrail skating that will inspire the Nyjah kids fan club to be emulating for years to come. Production levels as you’d imagine from Ty Evans, ‘epic’ movie type feel along with multi angles to let the madness sink in.

 

If you hadn’t heard this video release coincides with his Nyjah’s first shoe release from Nike Sb. Link below for more info on the re-vamped ‘Nike Free’ silhouette.

Expect more colour-ways dropping in the foreseeable and no doubt more crazy antics from long term Element Professional Nyjah Huston.

 

Fair play Nyjah, you certainly earn’t the Nike Sb paycheck on this one. Hats off to you!

Nike Sb – Daan Van Der Linden

Nike Sb – Daan Van Der Linden

 

Well the skateboard rumor mill has been bubbling away on this one for a while now. And as the dust settles and when all’s said and done Daan Van Der Linden chooses the Swoosh to leave his long time home of Vans for Nike Sb.

 

You can only imagine what the Slap forums (other skateboard forums are available) bandwidth is like on this one as every man and his dog will have an opinion. Personally for me (and that stands for sod all) it boils down to shoes to put on his feet along with paying some bills plus having a blast along the way. Remember all footwear brands whether sports giants, part of huge corporations or legitimately skater owned they are all actual “business’s” who have riders to endorse products to try sell more products, end of.

 

The bit that works great for us skateboarders is that we reap the benefits from these brands pushing riders in our face in terms of coverage. Imagine if Daan Van Der Linden only ever stayed skating down his local car-park and he was never given the opportunity to skate the best spots in the World for his and our entertainment…

 

Well, form your own opinion but I like how skaters at the top of their game can get payed ‘real’ money nowadays. It’s been said before but look at footballers, basketball players etc… them guys seriously will never work a real job after their career and why shouldn’t it be so for skateboarders who could have life ending (never mind career) injuries at any given moment. Hats off to any skaters getting paid and being given the opportunity to progress what we all love doing. Without this progression of skateboarding we’ll never get to see where this crazy ride will take us next.

 

Anyway, enough of the ramblings of an old man! Get your view on below as Daan Van Der Linden is seriously one of the best out there right now. Be sure to expect more Daan / Nike Sb style footage forthcoming in the very near future.

Daan Van Der Linden and his brother Job

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Daan Van Der Linden and his brother Job shared skate section.

 

 

Daan Van Der Linden and his equally talented brother Job have just released this amazing joint section.

Filled with a wicked mix of tech lines and crusty spots filmed in their native country Holland.

‘Straatparaat x Bawlin part’ shows the raw talent of the dutch brothers and are both super talented on their boards.

Not only do they share a part they also share a stinking green hat, see if you can spot it in the section!

Rumors have been circulating about a new sponsor for big man Daan over the last month.

After many years killing it on the Vans pro team it looks like he might of finally been tempted to jump ship.

Arguably one of the best Skaters in Europe if not the world we can only imagine how much dollar he must now be worth to a company.

After turning pro for Anti Hero last year i wonder if he’ll be joining his fellow team mate Grant Taylor on even more trips and tours around the world with his new sponsor?

 

 

Check some more of the crazy magic from Daan in this ‘Over Stokes’ clip taken from his Volcom section that came out a couple of years ago, he truly is a wizard on a Skateboard!

Apparently as part of his new sponsorship deal he also requested that his brother Job be hooked up on the same company! Must be good to be Daans brother right now!

Can anyone guess where his magical feet might be taking him then in the future? Stay tuned for the big announcement coming soon!

A big favorite of everyone at the Black Sheep we’re looking forward to seeing what crazy footage he drops in 2018.

Swoosh! In a bit pal. x

Theotis Beasley Hip Hop Hijack Part

Monday, May 29th, 2017

 

Nike SB and Baker pro Theotis Beasley comes out with his new ‘Hip Hop Hijack’ part courtesy of Transworld Skateboarding and it’s banging to say the least. We haven’t seen much from Theotis in a while but this was definitely worth the wait. This part is full of Theotis’ signature bag of tricks like backside double flips, tech manual combos, a banging big heel down a huge triple set and also a guest cameo from none other than Lil Wayne. Check out the video below to see some classic Theotis shredding.

Nike SB Spring 14′ Drop 2

Saturday, January 18th, 2014


 

Nike SB have already come through with a unique colour pallet on the 1st drop on the SS14 release including the Lunar One Shot which you may have already read about on our blog. The 2nd drop of the season introduces a revolutionary take on the best selling skate shoes from Nike SB, the Janoski & Koston 2 to create a unique shoe. Each design combines the key components from the Janoski and Koston 2 with running inspired elements from Nike’s Air Max and Free Run sole technology to create an innovative hybrid for skateboarding.

 

 CLICK HERE TO PRE-ORDER NOW

 

The Nike SB Janoski Max features a breathable, extremely lightweight synthetic mesh upper which is detailed with a faint camouflage layer. The outter sole is fused with the flexible Nike Free tread at the front, with Air Max style sole at the heel which will provide extra impact protection, the speckled sole really adds a splash of character to the shoe. Available in Midnight Navy/White and Crimson Red/White.

The Nike SB Koston 2 Max is a transformed take on the Koston 2‘s. As with the Janoski, the Koston 2 Max carries the same sole structure with the Free Run along the front outter-sole completed with Air Max rear sole. The new design features lightweight Hyperfuse and mesh construction while the combination of a Max Air heel unit and Free forefoot provides a flexible cushioning.
