Eddie Belvedere and Sam Mason hit Germany for Dickies

Monday, September 14th, 2020

Strong Black Sheep family representation here with Eddie Belvedere and Sam Mason joining forces with Cornish heads Rhys Bickmore and master lens man Matt Hunt.
Flucht aus England, (AKA ‘Escape from England) sees Captain Caveman, Simply Shred and crew hit up up the German city of Köln on a four day camping/skate mission.
This one was filmed after Covid restrictions had been briefly lifted in August of this year with the lads chomping at the bit to go anywhere with a modicum of liberty.
A quick ferry journey and camping chair chill and bosch (forgive the German pun) our intrepid group of goons were happily chewing on German architecture.
With Dickies (along with Mount Hawke and Blacksheep) funding this one, Eddie Belvedere and Sam Mason led the charge around Köln hitting up various spots, including the frankly amazing looking KAP 686 skate plaza (hit that link for more on that place).

Eddie and co skate all manner of street spots, bringing with them that peculiarly British notion of ‘if it’s a bank, it’s a skate spot, even if it’s horrible’.
Some places you’ll recognise as they’ve appeared on some heavy videos in the past, whereas others are new to us and probably to you too. Based on this though, Köln looks like a decent choice for a skate trip, well as soon as we’re allowed the leave the house again anyway.

For those you who aren’t already aware, Matt Hunt (the guy behind the camera on this one) has been making UK skate videos for a long while so, if this floats your boat, go peep some more of his stuff.

Black Sheep family in Isaac Wilkinson Isolation clip

Tuesday, April 14th, 2020

Heavy representation here with a brace of the Black Sheep family in Isaac Wilkinson‘s Isolation clip.
Released last week, this is big man’s donation to the cause with a steady four minutes and fourteen seconds of unseen Manchester ripping. Not entirely sure when Isaac filmed this but presumably during the period between releasing his 2016 independent skate video ‘O-One’Fuckin’-6-One‘ and his more recent ascension into the London ranks of camera-wielding media nodes.
For any of you unaware of Isaac Wilkinson’s past record in skate video-making, you can fill in any gaps that you might have here via a fairly extensive interview with the man himself conducted back in 2016.

Isaac’s latest, whilst billed as little more than an airing of some unused footage, is, in actuality, pretty much a full length banger of a clip featuring Black Sheep family heads Eddie Belvedere, Harry Lintell, Jiri Bulin, Ricky Davidson, Seb Batty, Lucien Costello and Sam Mason. Isaac’s probably just being modest by describing it as a clearing out of the hard drives given that he’s now big-manned it to London levels of kneeling in piss filming people eating teacakes or whatever it is that he’s currently engaged in. Nevertheless, this is a straight up banger and more than deserving of your time. Isaac is and forever will be a strong member of the Black Sheep family, whether he’s living in that London or not.

As we’ve touched on the topic in this here post and because, let’s face it – any distraction from being locked in the house is good enough right now: why not remind yourselves of just how banging Isaac’s 2016 Manchester video still is by engaging eyeballs below?

First up is new dad and crust DIY supremo Jiri Bulin’s section from said video.

Following that you’ve got Seb Batty’s section to enjoy.

Jump on the link here for our YouTube channel to peep the rest, plus a bunch of other archive content that we’ve uploaded over the years. If nothing else, it’ll keep you awake for a few more hours.

Lastly, but not least – big love to all our customers who have continued to stand by us and kept the orders flowing in during the lockdown. We’ve got whatever it is you need and we’re on it daily, so if you need anything – you know where to come. You are all Black Sheep family.

Graystone Skatepark Manchester – Black Sheep Family

Graystone Skatepark Manchester – Black Sheep Family

 

One recent mid winter evening we where cordially invited to go check out the newest indoor skate park for Manchester. Graystone Action Sports Academy Manchester is somewhat different to the dark, dingy skate-parks we’ve all grown up with. Instead your welcomed with cleanliness, good lighting, one seriously impressive layout by the FourOneFour park builders and to top it all off you can enjoy some chef made food and (for the non-drivers) partake in an arrange of beverages.

 

 

We’ve been told there’s more to come from this Manchester based facility to add to the trampoline, snowboard foam pit jump and general craziness of the place. Expect a sprung floor insulation, ninja climbing centre, on site yoga classes and much, much more. At this point let me just state the square footage of the place still remains around 80% pure heavenly Russian birch skate-park paradise.

 

 


 

 

Huge thanks for the invite and session. Get your viewing pleasure on below and see the fruits of labour from that recent winter evening session. As you may be aware the #BlackSheepFamily go off at any given opportunity so it’s no surprise they bagged a minute and half’s worth of footage with more to spare.

 

Featuring Black Sheep Store team riders Harry Lintell, Seb Batty, Lucien Costello, Sam Mason and the latest young-gun recruit and all around terrain killer Leo James. All filmed in just a two hour session followed by beer, bants and fat cut chips for afters. Thanks again to Graystone Action Sports Academy for the hook up.

 

 

Props to Lewis Royden and Will Berry from Amfas Skateboards for the filming & editing duties.
