Ricky Davidson – Winter In The City Avenue Skateboards

 

If you’ve ever frequented the Pump Cage skate park you may of come across the unassuming friendly Australian that is Ricky Davidson. Seriously one of the nicest Manchester’s skate scene import since Jiri Bulin. Plus along with being super grounded and all round good dude Ricky as you may of witnessed has some serious talent on a skateboard! His style to me is a like a Jason Adams, Wade Speyers modern street skating mix. And with those sort of credentials he’s one of the best up and comer in Manchester right now.

 

Cast your mind back to 2016 when Ricky stomped all over many a Manchester skate spots with his debut ‘Ender’ and ‘Official Welcome’ section for #01FUCKIN61

 

The above ridiculous part ended up premiering via Transworld Skateboard Magazine. Not a bad entry to the minds of skateboarders Worldwide eh…

Enough of my ramblings as this blog should be about Ricky’s first official video outing for Manchester based Avenue Skateboards. Obvious shout outs to Vague Skate Magazine for putting this out to the Worldwide web. Also if like Ricky you like beer hit the link??? Random, yes but Black Sheep’s own Ricky Davidson graces the Northern Monk beer collaboration with Vague Skate Mag latest joint outing. Beer can photography by straight up grafter and good guy Reece Leung that graces the latest loral hops 5.7% lager.

A couple of Saturdays ago on the 9th of May, Manchester’s own pump cage was the place to host this years Element Make It Count competition. It’s a great competition that has been running for some years now and always seems to bring out the best in everybody that attends, from people helping out, to the entering process ( one canned food item was required for entry and all food items were donated to local food banks) and to the overall standard of skating! The competition is set out all over the world to see the latest talents that skateboarding has to offer and for Element it also spreads its word  and belief of social awareness and positivity. Once again there was a superb turn out ( like there always is for events here in Manchester! ) and throughout the three different age categories the skating was just as impressive! A big shout out to everyone who turned up, took part, helped out and made the day as good as it was!

Biggest congratulations go to our very own Jiri “George” Bulin who smashed it all day and was crowned overall winner at the end! Bagging himself a trip to Italy and a spot in the European finals for the chance to go to California to compete for Element sponsorship at Nyjah’s park!  Well done pal and good luck!

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..
