Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards

Thursday, September 2nd, 2021

Well, it’s been a long time coming but finally Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards. UK-based British skateboarders turning pro for American board companies is still very rare, (was Kyron Davies the last one?) but with Harry it was only a matter of time.
Funnily enough, Harry filmed the ender for his 2011 Sidewalk magazine ‘In Progress’ part exactly ten years ago, (September 1st 2011) so it’s pretty wild that 10 years and 1 day later, his name will finally adorn a pro model. As a long-time Black Sheep family member who has been tied into everything we do for a decade at least, it definitely feels great to legitimately be able to say out loud that Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards.
Whatever your views are on the current situation of wider skateboarding culture in 2021, it’s going to take a pure bellend to question Harry’s right to this one. I mean yeah, it’s Real Skateboards, one of the first post Bones Brigade/post Steve Rocco skater-owned brands with a heritage stretching back to 1991 and founded by Tommy Guerrero and Jim Thiebaud but, on the other hand, this is Harry fucking Lintell we’re talking about.
Before I get too carried away force feeding you nuggets of video history let’s all just take a minute, breathe in and reflect on how fucking cool this is. A kid from Ashford in Kent, ‘discovered’ via a DVS get yourself sponsored contest in Sidewalk magazine, who went on to ride for a number of board brands through his friendship with all of here at Black Sheep (Jart, then Superdead) has gone on to move to Manchester, make waves globally and end up with a pro board on probably the most venerable skater-owned skate company on the planet. And we had to pretend we didn’t know about it in order to pull off his in-store board release party that happened tonight (Sept 2nd 2021). What a fucking trip.

You can buy yourself one of Harry’s boards (which will sell out very quickly make no mistake) by clicking below. You know what to do.

Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards

With the above said, and in celebration of the fact that Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards, allow me the liberty of throwing a few possibly lesser known Lintell bangers at your eyes because, well just because…

First up, Harry’s 2011 Sidewalk ‘In Progress’ referenced above – the 5050 on the kinked subway rail in Sheffield was filmed on Sept 1st 2011 – quite the coincidence.

Next up, a pretty obscure one that I’m assuming many people won’t have seen but that absolutely deserves a re-watch. This is the i-Path shoes entry for the 2010 Big Push and Harry’s final trick in Leeds is still FUCKED 11 years later. The video is set to play from the start of Harry’s section but the whole piece is worth your eyes.

Next up is Harry’s Volcom ‘True to this’ part filmed by long-term friend and cohort Kevin Parrott. Again, watch this, consider the fact that it’s 6 years old and weep at the knowledge that Harry did the switch flip over the rail at Southbank on three separate occasions.

And last but by no means least and probably the least obscure of all the UK-based legacy parts from Harry’s back catalogue – his section from Cover Version by Kevin Parrott and Dan Magee.

Obviously there are a ton of other Harry Lintell parts out there – hit Harry’s name earlier in this sentence to peep those.
And now, without further bollocks – see below for the first Real video and then go bask in the reality that Harry Lintell is pro for Real skateboards. Esse quam videri, innit?


Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax

Monday, August 2nd, 2021

Can’t fuck with Harry now can you?
Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax is the latest northern-focused mind-melter from Black Sheep family member Mr. Harry Lintell.
Filmed over the last year in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and various other northern cities – this is the fruit of Harry’s next level ability and the removal of mainstream security from shit loads of spots during the Covid lockdown.

With long-time Mancunian film maker Sean Lomax behind the lens and Harry in front of it, this was never going to be anything less than brilliant and, surprise, surprise – that’s exactly what it is – brilliant.
It’s literally just dropped on Thrasher’s YouTube channel so we’ll keep the chat to a minimum – go watch Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax right now. It’s a belter!
Big up all involved.

One brief thing that made us laugh was the switch backtail in London, which isn’t exactly in fitting with Thrasher’s blurb about filming locations but hey, it’s only one trick and the ender’s filmed in a carpark in Stockport so, whatever…

Also, just for good measure, after you’ve watched Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax, give your brain a reminder of another Lintell – Lomax collaboration. See below.

Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague with Munro and Barney Page

Tuesday, January 5th, 2021

Harry Lintell in Milan anyone? Vague magazine starting 2021 off with bang courtesy of Black Sheep family member Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague, alongside Charlie Munro and Barney Page. We’re not really sure if it’s appropriate to wish you all a Happy New Year seeing as our ever capable government have just locked us all in the house again but this will occupy 5 minutes where you’re not fretting about bog roll at least.
Hairy Lentils footage is always a treat, so seeing his ridiculous skills set alongside the equally mental abilities of UK cohorts Barney Page and Charlie Munro, is just adding delicious cherries to an already scrumptious skateboard cake. (Where am I going with this…?)

With UK-import and firm VX1000 favourite Quentin ‘@pertharms’ Guthrie behind the camera, you should know already that the filming and editing in this will be seamless and focused on showing the skating in the best possible light, which is sadly less common than it ought to be these days.
If you’re keen to see some of Quentin’s previous releases after watching this banger – we’d recommend starting with his 2016 maiden voyage (as far as UK footage goes) in the shape of ‘Brexit’ below.
If you enjoy that, (which you most definitely will) – head over to his pertharms YouTube channel for more.

Anyway, to return to the matter at hand, namely Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague: as you’d expect Harry royally fucks shit up, opening up the clip with a brace of tasty lines and introducing Mister Page and Munro who also deliver hard on the footage front. The UK trio are also joined by Milan resident and Baker skateboards pro Jacopo Carozzi who drops a line oozing with style and grace. Interestingly for a Milan clip, ‘Travel Corridor’ has minimal Milan train station plaza footage and offers up a bunch of new (to me at least) amazing spots from elsewhere in this Italian metropolis.
Two immense thumbs up for UK Primitive and New Balance Numeric rider Charlie Munro’s ender too – did somebody say ‘pinch’?
That’s it for now. Stay safe everyone.

Zion Wright – “Jupiter Rising” Real Part

 

Zion Wright has surely got to be in contention for Thrasher Magazine’s Skater Of The Year award after dropping his second Real part of the year. The Nike SB rider has had one hell of a year having a Vans Park Series win under his belt, being on Thrasher’s King Of The Road, a gnarly frontside 5-0 cover and spending the majority of 2018 travelling, skating and filming with his homies. Click play below and decide for yourself if he should take home one of skateboarding’s top honors this year.

Zion Wright’s “REAL” Part – Real Skateboards

Zion Wright’s “REAL” Part – Real Skateboards

 

 

Feast your eyes on Zion Wright’s first full part since turning Pro for Real Skateboards. Watch Zion do some outrageous skateboarding in Manchester spots. But it’s not just Manchester, Zion and the Real boys have been all round the world filming for this. Shout out to Tim Fulton for producing this edit.

 

 

Zion has been smashing it since he was tiny, he grabbed skaters attention at an early age and many have watched him grow and progress into the machine that he is today. And now, at the tender age of 19 Zion is pro, and rightfully so.

 

This skateboarding prodigy continues to blow our minds. Unbelievable at both street and park this boy can do it all. We were stoked to have Zion down in the shop along with the other Real team skaters to celebrate our own Harry Lintell’s Real part premier. Despite being an absolute maniac on a skateboard Zion was super chilled and a pretty quiet dude. Zion, it was a pleasure to have you.

 

We felt really lucky to be the only Northern stop for the Real team. So once again, a big thanks to Real Skateboards, Shiner Uk Ltd. Distribution and DLXSF for hooking it up and all the support they have given us.

The Gonz just hit the big 5-0, so it seems a good time to reflect on this legend.

 

 

Memory Screen have gone and put together 9 minutes straight of Mark Gonzales’ best bits over the years. This edit contains some of his most memorable clips from 1995 right up until 2018. Take some time to appreciate over a decade of one of the most iconic skateboarders out there.

 

This also feels a good time to show Krooked some love. A bit of history for you, Krooked was founded in 2001 by Mark Gonzales. Krooked was started under DLX Distribrution alongside Spitfire WheelsThunder Trucks and Real Skateboards. And of course the Gonz is responsible for the iconic graphics and art as well as promotional material & ads.

Nike Sb – True To Form Edit

Nike Sb – True To Form Edit

 

You all know the Nike Sb crew goes in on any edit they put out. You’ll also know they have the team to back it up on all fronts with countless team members now rocking the Swoosh and no signs of slowing down. And yes the skateboard industry rumor mill is working overtime as to the announcement of their latest European 18 acquisition….. But more on that one soon enough.

 

Feast your eyes below for the Nike Sb True To Form edit that coincides with the heavy release of the Nike Sb ‘Deconstructed’ range. Featuring the following Sb team riders Ishod Wair (personal favorite and one of the most talented skaters on the planet right now,) the rarely seen Alex Olson, Big Poppa Antonio Durao, smooth operator Donovon Piscopo and Real Skateboard’s latest Pro and all terrain ripper Zion Wright. All filmed in and around the very spot heavy San Francisco Bay Area.

 

 

As mentioned above this ridiculously good edit came about to coincide with the Nike Sb Deconstructed footwear (Ishod’s rocking the Dunk Low Light Bone version in the clip.)

 

More images and link below for full break down description of the Deconstructed Dunk Low and Blazer Low. Also keep a keen look out later this Spring ’18 as there will be the Nike Sb Decon ‘Dunk Low’ Black/Summit White/Anthracite available here in store and online.

Monday, September 11th, 2017

 

Real Skateboards are back yet again with brand new footage and accompanying video ‘By Any Means’. It’s hard to fault this lot I mean look at there diverse team, the constant trips and travelling they do and a video output that even in this day in age puts other brands to shame. ‘By Any Means’ confirms this with the brilliant cinematography and global footage from spots all around the world like the USA, Madrid, Barcelona and many other destinations. All of the Real team have clips but this video is mainly concentrated on the young guns Jafin Garvey, Willy Lara, Zion Wright and Jack Olson who are well and truly carrying the Real torch into the future. The video also features Davis Torgeson, Peter Ramondetta, Ishod Wair, Robbie Brockel, Dennis Busenitz, Jake Donnelly, Hermann Stene, Kyle Walker, Justin Brock, Nate Viands, Chima Ferguson and our own Harry Lintell.
