The clocks have gone forward an hour, its not dark when we get out of work, the sun is starting to shine and it seems like summer is eventually on its way! That could only mean one thing! Yes, its that time of year as we get ready for the Vans Shop Riot! Starting in the UK on the 25th – 26th April for two days of non stop action! This year sees Pioneer Skate Park in St.Albans hosting the event. £3000 prize money and  an all expenses paid trip to the European finals is up for grabs! After the UK leg comes to a close on the 26th, the attention turns to Aalast, at the Flesh and Bones Skatepark, the scene of last years finals where Belgium’s own Rampaffairz skateshop just missed out on top spot to fellow countrymen Burnside so expect it to go off at this one! With as many as fifteen stops around Europe this year the series will be almost everywhere, from Portugal to Poland, Italy to Israel, before it all comes to a head in Spain for the final! Will the Black Sheep lads be there to take the top spot? ( My moneys on them! Come on lads!!! ) Keep your eyes peeled! More info such as a live stream will be up here on the blog at a later date obviously closer to the time!

Vans Shop Riot Live Stream 2014

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

 

 

Its that time again! The Vans Shop Riot finals are upon us and you can watch all the action unfold via our live stream on our Black Sheep blog. Independent shops and their teams from all over Europe have been battling it out for a place in the finals in Aalast, Belgium this weekend ( 11 – 12 October ).  This year saw the Northen leg take place at Ramp1 in Warrington where our Black Sheep team and defending champions placed themselves in a respectable third.  The Southern leg was held at Prevail Skatehouse in Poole, unfortunately our lads were just pipped to the post of top spot but still finished in a well deserved second place.  That means there is no Black Sheep entry in the final for a change! We could win it every year but were just not that selfish! A new team will be crowned champions by Sunday evening, but until then lets look back at last years final!

Black Sheep Shop Riot 2014

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Check the clip below to see how the Black Sheep tore apart Prevail Skatehouse in Poole at the Vans Shop Riot 2014. This year we managed to get together enough DOGGERS for a Black Sheep Shop Riot A and B team. As with the previous Shop Riots through the years the skating was top class, everybody was going for it and getting things on lock in the warm up ready for the qualifying heats, the skating seems to be getting better and better each year so well done to all who were on form! After a hectic afternoon we were down to the final three shops, Skate Pharmacy, The Ledge and our Black Sheep A team to battle it out for that lucrative number one spot!  The A team managed to get a well deserved 2nd place, narrowly missing out to Skate Pharmacy to take the top spot! The lads will be taking home £600 between Jiri Bulin, Eddie Belvedere, Rob Smith and Rikk Fields. The B team also smashed it but unfortunately didn’t manage to place in the top 3 but big up to Andy Scott, Gary ‘Woody’ Woodward and Reiss Johnson for there effort.  We already cant wait for the 2015 series where we will be back and keener than ever!
