Reiss Johnson

Friday, November 27th, 2015


At the Black Sheep Store we have some wonderful bosses and I’m not just saying that to get a pay rise. Harry and Tez are generally top dudes and I personally couldn’t thank them enough. Not only have they given so much to Manchester skateboarding over the years, risking mortgages and food for their amazing kids but they have also supplied many of us with jobs. One person they’ve helped out for the past year is Reiss Johnson. Many of you may recognize him for shredding transition like there’s no tomorrow.




It is now unfortunate to announce it’ll be his last day working for us at The Black Sheep Store. Reiss is one of those dudes that has an infinite amount of knowledge, whether it be in brew making or where the next sink hole will appear. For those that haven’t met him personally in our store, maybe due to him working hard behind the scenes, he’s a top lad! He’s a good friend, great colleague and a barrel of laughs. There are various rumors to where he’ll be forwarding his career but after his earlier announcement he will be venturing out into the gay porn industry. Good luck pal, hope it serves you well.

Mr Johnson will still be a valuable member of our infamous skate team. Hopefully we can expect to see some more video parts in the near future. Here’s his welcome edit that was nothing but power….



It’s been great having you part of the team pal….. NOW FACK OFF HAWK!




Ride Channel Open Edit

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015





For nearly a year now the Ride Channel have been posting a series of edits up on their site called the ‘Open’ edits. These clips are from shops not just in the USA but from all around the world. The idea was to show the independent shops that support skateboarding in their community and also the riders and staff that make these shops the backbone of the skateboard scene, and yes you guessed it, it was our turn for the Ride Channel Open edit ! Thanks to the camera and editing skills of Mr Phil Harvey, he has treated us to nearly four minutes of Black Sheep action! Jiri Bulin kicks things off with some raw street hammers before Lewis Threadgold shows us how to properly do a load of wallie and wall ride variations! Josh Bentley mixes old spots with new, a sick line at Manchester’s newest DIY spot and a huck down the infamous grizzly stairs. Stu Reynolds after that proves that 40 is the new 20, then Lucien Costello shows us the talents of Manchester youth on the rise! Seb Batty makes light work of one of the highest ledges in town! Nick Stannerz and Sexual Stu keep the mosh alive with a quick line each on urbis.  Rikk Fields throws some of his footage in from his recent exploits in Hong Kong while Jake Potts keeps it local with an added Barcelona banger! Badman Barrett gets tech at Stockport’s finest ledge haven, then there’s strictly business as Reiss Johnson and Andy Scott take it to the vert! Harry Lintell comes through with even more mesmerizing street antics before Eddie Belvedere takes on some Cornish concrete! Rob Smith ends the show in fine fashion, gnarly drop ins, street lines and flying high at Stockwell! Big thanks to Phil Harvey for putting it together, Rybo, Armani Rochford and Isaac Wilkinson for additional filming. Big shout out to MC DRS for providing the soundtrack and also to the Ride Channel for having us on! So what you waiting for click play now!




Keep up with all things MC DRS by giving him a follow on Twitter !



Black Sheep Welcomes Reiss Johnson

Monday, June 30th, 2014



Apparently vert skating is dead so we added Reiss Johnson to the Black Sheep Team as our worst marketing plan ever. Saying that if there was ever someone who could bring vert back from the dead it would be this guy! Reiss has been smashing it for quite a while now, finding himself a spot on the Heathen Skateboards team along the way!
Cameo appearance from fellow Black Sheep rider Andy Scott.

Filmed and edited by Isaac Wilkinson.




Good work Reiss, stoked to have you aboard Manchester’s finest.
