UK Primitive rider Charlie Munro scores two covers

Friday, May 1st, 2020

 

 

UK Primitive rider Charlie Munro scores two covers of two different UK skate magazines in April.
Bagging yourself two magazine covers in the same month is an achievement in itself but doing so whilst the entire country is under lock down is something that’s (hopefully) unlikely to be repeated any time soon.
We felt that this was worthy of a donation of virtual knucks to Cambridge-born ginger ripper and UK Primitive rider Charlie Munro really, and because, let’s face it – we’ve not really got much else to do than stare at skate clips right now have we?

For the sake of clarity – you can see both of Charlie Munro‘s quarantine-themed covers here: the first was the cover of Grey released in early April, followed yesterday by an equally banging cover of Vague. I’m almost certain that this is something that hasn’t happened previously – yeah there have been times when more than one skate mag has had the same person on the cover but I don’t think that it’s ever happened in the same month – and certainly not under the crazy circumstances that we’re living through right now.

 

 

 

 

Anyway with cyber props out of the way – might as well revel in a little bit of Munro juice really mightn’t we?
First rising to prominence via the Get Lesta series of videos, Charlie has subsequently gone on to achieve notoriety across the globe, be a semi-regular fixture amidst Thrasher’s never ending web output, and get a legit (non-distro) direct sponsorship deal from the skateboarding super team of the modern era – namely Primitive Skateboards. Not bad for a ginner eh?
With his two covers landing in our store right now – what better excuse to air a few banging parts from the Munro back catalogue?

Above you can see a couple of our favourite bits of Charlie footage from the Get Lesta era – including the one (at the very top) made to celebrate the release of the 2016 Get Lesta x Primitive skateboarding collab.
Below you can check out Charlie’s outstanding contribution to Kev Parrott and Dan Magee’s masterful independent release ‘Cover Version’ – it’s set to play from the beginning of Charlie’s section but honestly, just watch the whole thing, it’s amazing and Black Sheep family member Harry Lintell has the last part.

As well as all the above, here’s the clip from 2019’s UK visitation from the Primitive skateboarding crew – not bad for a few days eh? Whilst you’re at it – I’d recommend hitting up the hyperlink here too and watching the utter devastation that the Primitive lot brought to Bay Sixty6 back in August of 2019. Craziest demo I’ve ever seen, hands down.

 

 

 

 

Finally, for now at least – check out Charlie Munro in the latest video from Pocket magazine featuring him and a host of other European rippers tearing up the ridiculous marble spots of the UAE. I’m not convinced by trap music still but this clip’s a banger.

 

 

 

 

If all of this has whet your appetite to jump on some Charlie Munro related product, why not head over to our web store and check out the range of Marvel x Primitive boards that just came in? You know it makes sense.

With the streets, plazas and the areas that surround Barcelona being the holy grail in the skate world the Primitive team thought it was only right to go in search.

Carlos Ribeiro – It Must Be Nice

Monday, March 13th, 2017

 

It must be nice…well it must be if you were just as good at skating like Carlos Ribeiro. Less than a month after Thrasher Magazine broadcast his brand new part for Primitive Skateboards the Brazilian wizard is back and yet again in mesmerizing style leaving us open mouthed in awe at his expertise on a board. This new edit sees him cruising around the Berrics banging out lines and combos that could be seen in a video game like it’s no big deal. It seems mad to think after seeing his natural ability, before P-Rod decided to hook him up he was floating around sponsorship limbo with only a Plan B flow deal to his name. Now at 25, with a Nike SB contract, a pro board on one of the biggest brands around at the moment, things are looking very bright for Carlos and he doesn’t look like slowing down anytime soon. Hit that play button to see some naturally gifted precision.

Carlos Ribeiro – “Juice” Part

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

 

This section is hard to comprehend how good it really is. Carlos Ribeiro just sent a message out to the world, he’s coming to skate and destroy your ledges. Primitive Skateboards Brazilian powerhouse comes through with some serious pop but just saying that doesn’t really do Carlos justice. His trick combinations are next level and explode in front of your eyes, some of the moves he manages to pull off in this are mind-boggling. Before you start thinking oh here we go, another ledge and manual inspired four minutes think again, keep your eyes peeled for some hefty hucks and some serious rail bangers to close things out. This is an incredibly deep part so click play now.

Devine Calloway Pro For Primitive

Monday, February 1st, 2016

 

Everybody loves a good come back! Devine Calloway certainly has had the best comeback of the year so far! After parting ways with Chocolate some years ago, it seemed that Devine fell off skateboarding’s radar all together. No photo’s or any footage really emerged, and unfortunately people began to think that was it, he’s done. Then after a while he started to pop up in some Primitive clips with Brian Peacock, and you could tell that he was still taking his skating really seriously. Primitive released this clip earlier today announcing Devine’s pro status! It’s pretty obvious from this clip that Devine is back and getting better than ever, so I wont be surprised if we see more from him in the coming future!

 

 

Keep up with Devine Calloway and give him a follow on Instagram !
