Harry Lintell in Portugal, Plan B and Ben Broyd for OJ wheels

Monday, July 25th, 2022

July round up time with tons of banging video content encompassing everything from Harry Lintell in Portugal for Volcom, through to the latest release from skateboarding’s own faux angry Incel vibe company Hockey.
First things first though – Black Sheep Family member Harry Lintell in Portugal with Pocket Skate Mag.
Obviously this has been a big year for Harry what with his first Real Skateboards pro board dropping but, with the consistency with which he drops ridiculous footage, you’d be forgiven for thinking he’d turned pro ever year for the last decade. Alongside the always enjoyable Harry Lintell in Portugal, this Volcom x Pocket Skate Mag piece serves up 7 minutes of banging footy from the likes of Eniz Fazliov, Collin Provost, Dustin Dollin and Jorge Simoes to name just a couple.
It bears saying here too that for those of you unaware of Pocket Skate Mag until now – their skate video output is outstanding: in particular their amazing ‘Followed’ series.

Next up, another UK-related piece in the form of the recent Ben Broyd clip which sees him test-riding OJ wheels 95a ‘Nomads’ on a variety of crusty British spots. I’m yet to meet anyone unstoked by this softly-spoken maniac so, use your eyes and dive into the terrain you can unlock with slightly softer wheels.

If Ben Broyd is a little too wholesome for you then there’s always the (presumably) tongue-in-cheek school shooter vibe of Hockey who just dropped their latest full length. Whilst fans of ironic Ben Kadow and/or Spicy Kev will be left hungry (with one trick each), Diego Todd’s ender more than makes up for it.
With that said, so edgy is Hockey’s aesthetic (allegedly) that YouTube don’t allow embeds so follow the link here if you want to see Hockey X.

Penultimately, here’s a reminder that Plan B just (fairly unceremoniously) just released ‘Code’, their sixth full-length video (their second since the re-birth of the brand over a decade ago). With a video legacy including the likes of Questionable (1992), Virtual Reality (1993) and Second Hand Smoke (1994), Plan B was never going to have it easy when it came to living up to expectations. Due to this, in much the same way that 2014’s True produced in terms of amazing skating but not so much in cultural paradigm-shifts, Code delivers amazing sections (particularly from Trevor McClung, Chris Joslin and Plan B OG Pat Duffy) but is, ultimately, just another video. There’s no arguing with the skateboarding but some of the music and a lot of the editing left me cold if I’m honest. With that said – it’s still mandatory viewing.

Finally, and somewhat fittingly given the historical talk above, is Thrasher Magazine’s China Banks documentary.
Featuring shit loads of archive and never-before-seen raw footage, this is the definitive history of an SF street spot that has had a global influence on skatepark design for 40 years. Watch it!


Real presents Postcard another banging video part from Harry Lintell

Saturday, April 30th, 2022

Another month, another ridiculous full-length video part from Harry Lintell. Hot on the heels (ish) of Real turning him pro back in September of last year, Harry’s been in the States killing it. No surprises there, right? As a deep and valued Black Sheep family member, we knew Harry had it in him for day one.
Style, pop, power, trick selection, speed: old gap tooth has it all so add Postcard to the list. This is yet another banging video part from Harry Lintell.
As we discussed in the blog post celebrating his mum presenting Harry with his long overdue pro board, Harry’s in very esteemed company. The list of UK street skaters who’ve turned pro for huge US brands is small. The list of those who’ve done so whilst predominantly living in the UK is even smaller. It’s a testament to both the supernatural ability he has and to how seriously Real skateboards take him.
Mind you, which brand wouldn’t want a pro who can knock video parts out like this?
I guess Harry must’ve been taking notes from Ishod when it comes to productivity.

Watch the newest video part with Harry Lintell above first and then take your fingers for a wander and support Ashford’s finest. His latest ‘World Peace’ pro board from Real skateboards is currently in stock in 8.25, and we still have a few of his original two decks. Don’t sleep, big dog needs teeth.

If you fancy more video part from Harry Lintell, simply click the Harry Lintell tag at the bottom of this post, or indeed on his name ‘Harry Lintell‘ here. There are shit loads of archive posts with shit loads more footage.
Only a few things left to say really. Number one, that line which starts with the switch ollie over the rail and ends with the backside flip is a pisstake. Number two, Harry has the best switch frontside heelflip on the planet. And, finally, if you fancy waxing lyrical about how much you like Harry’s skating – go chat shit with other nerds here.


Ishod Wair the GOAT, Baglady supplies and Grey Area Polish enders

Sunday, March 27th, 2022

Any month that sees a new video part dropping from Ishod Wair the GOAT is welcome, right?
Fans of Real skateboard‘s finest are not going to be disappointed here. Prepare your souls for ten minutes of new footage from a man who absolutely deserves the oft-overused appellation of Ishod Wair the GOAT.
It’s almost inconceivable to think that Ishod won Thrasher magazine’s coveted SOTY 9 years ago (back in 2013) and yet is still going in this hard. Pure natural ability and work ethic combined: it’s that simple.
So much incredible skating here and loads of extremely cruisey lines too, well, ‘cruisey’ for Ishod, not for everyone else obviously. Tech, rail gnar, style – what more do you want?
Extra lelz available in this one too with Ishod running various pairs of Nike SB Dunks that’ll make the StockX reseller heads cry. “Ben & Jerry Chunkys? Yeah just kickflipped the shit out of them mate – go resell them if you like, they’re in the bin.”

Ishod Wair the GOAT

Next up on the ‘videos that have jumped out at us this month’ list is the premier release from UK-based Baglady Supplies. According to their website, Baglady is a ‘brand from South East London’ who appear to be making boards and a huge range of clothing and accessories. I’m hoping that Daryl Dominguez has a hand in it business-wise as he has been dangerously overlooked by the skate industry (outside of Vans) for far too long.
Anyhow, peep below for more from Double D, Davide Holzknecht, Luka Pinto, Aref Koushesh, Tom Delion, Henry Gibbs, Ranga and Joel Banner. This is a banger.

Finally, or as they say in Poland, Wreszcie, we come to the latest release from the ever productive Polish skate crew behind the Grey Area videos. The rather aptly titled ‘Push Button to Destroy the World’ is the latest from Poland’s premiere lensman Kuba Kaczmarczyk and features a heavy cast including The National Skateboard Co pro Michał Juras, Finland’s Eniz Fazliov and various others. Whilst the whole piece is great, special attention must be directed towards Agata Halikowska’s last section which bangs. Big up Poland!

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

 

 

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.
