Enjoi Skateboards Panda Patrol Episode 3


You know we’re big fans of the Enjoi crew and their straight up no nonsense stance to skateboarding. Get your viewing below for said fun antics from time spent on their recent jaunt/tour around Europe and beyond. Obviously chuffed to see part of the signing in our store mixed up in there so look out for the stacked kid getting his top signed for all to see, kid was on a hype! This is also a huge thanks blog post for all at Dwindle Uk and the whole Enjoi skateboards squad for being the most genuine sponsored folks out there. They literally had them queuing around the block here at the Black Sheep Store to get some of the good vibes. Enough crawly bum lick, get clicking below and witness the likes of Ben Raemers, Louie Barletta, Jackson Pilz and newly appointed pro Samarria Brevard going in for Enjoi “Breaking Rad”

Projekts Skatepark Manchester “Pumpcage”

Monday, June 8th, 2015





If you have never even been to Manchester on a skate mission, you probably would still have heard of the infamous ‘pumpcage’ . From humble wooden beginnings to a now extended concrete jungle with a heated waiting area and cafe facilities , the cage has been an established part of the Manchester skateboard scene for a good ten years, and like the pillars that hold up the Mancunian way above, the cage has become a pillar for the local community. Whether your young or old, a total beginner or would just like some coaching, Projekts Skatepark caters for everyone. Girls only nights, beginners sessions with different age groups, half term skateboard clubs and even group bookings are available. All the staff that work there are super friendly and a very helpful bunch, and in turn are the locals that use the park on a daily basis! There is always a welcoming atmosphere and anyone is encouraged to come and get involved in the session!

The cage has hosted some of the most memorable competitions, jams and demos. From the likes of Red Bulls Mani Mania,  Elements Make It Count 2015 and the forthcoming NASS UK Skate North qualifier. The yearly jams like the summer, Easter,  Halloween and Christmas events always go down a storm with not just locals coming down but attracting skateboarders from all over the country! But things are not just confined to the space in the skate park, the yearly Manchester ‘Weekend In The City’ video competition encourages the entire city and beyond to be skated. Teams such as Cliche, Supra and Emerica have come and done demos along with a host of British companies! ( How good was the Blueprint demo!) How can you forget seeing the likes of Chad Muska, Lizard King, Jerry Hsu and the boss Andrew Reynolds among’st a host of others shredding the cage! There has also been art / photography shows along with  graffiti jams, with the actual pillars inside the park being used as a natural canvas. Expect more things like this going on in the near future.





Apart from the major holidays in the year, the cage is pretty much open seven days a week 364 days a year so there’s no excuse not go for a roll after school, work or even before heading into the glorious Manchester City center!

The skate park is there to used and enjoyed by all so support the scene and lets keep the cage going for the next generation.

Element Skateboards Make It Count Competition

Thursday, April 16th, 2015


Element skateboards have been killing the skateboard game since 1992. It’s a company I grew up with and I couldn’t be more stoked that they are still going strong. Probably stronger than ever, the team consists of some more than familiar faces like Chad Tim Tim, Nyjah Huston, Chad Muska, Ray Barbee, Mark Appleyard, Bam Margera, Madars Apse and loads more. So over the past few years they have been holding the Element Skateboards Make it Count Competition which has been a great success.

It’s a series of amateur skateboarding events that is put on throughout the world to seek out the latest talent skateboarding has to offer. It also promotes the Element message of social awareness, environmental stewardship and positivity. Instead of a cash prize the overall winner is awarded some great memories, a taste of culture from around the world and a possibility for a new found career in skateboarding. A truly unforgettable experience.


This year we see the competition coming to Manchester’s pump cage on Saturday May the 19th. You would be mad to miss out on such a great opportunity on your doorstep. Show your support and spread the word as it could be you or a friend that takes the time to enter and ends up winning something worthwhile. What’s to lose hey..
