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?

Kris Vile in LA for Almost Skateboards

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

 

It’s no doubt that Kris Vile is one of the most on it and productive skateboarders from the UK. Hailing from the often gloomy west midlands, the UK Vans rider never lets the rain dampen his efforts. A killer on pretty much everything on his skateboard whether it be street, ramp or park he has more motivation than most. Kris recently took a ten day trip over to LA to shoot some photos and film some footage for Almost Skateboards and Dwindle Distribution, his efforts come in the form on the edit below and for only being there for a short period of time only shows what an all rounder he is. Click play then head over to the Sidewalk website for the accompanying interview.

London Raw 2 – Manny Lopez & Harry Lintell for Austin Bristow

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

 

Here is London Raw 2 from Austin Bristow – a re-edit of the raw footage of Manny Lopez and Black Sheep rider Harry Lintell that first appeared in Austin’s earlier Capital series. Feast your eyes on three minutes of raw cruising around the capital from two of the most on point and productive lads in the game. Hitting up some London hot spots like Southbank, Canada Water and various other locations across the city. If Instagram is anything to go by these two are reportedly working on another heavy project with some well established London filmers, but that’ll remain a secret for now but I’m sure we will all know about it in the future.

Lobster Tales

Monday, February 8th, 2016

 

To support the new One Star Pro Launch, Converse Cons teamed up with Sidewalk mag and set out to explore seaside resorts in the North of England. Some of the infamous resorts visited were Blackpool, Whitby, Bridlington and Skegness, along with a few other hidden gems that were hit up along the way. So for one freezing cold week in January 2016, the UK Converse Cons team consisting of Ollie Lock, Dom Henry, Mike Arnold, Matlok Bennett-Jones, Harry Lintell and TM Jerome Campbell braved the cold, layered up and packed themselves into a convoy of vehicles to see what these Northern seaside towns had to offer. As you’d expect but the crew came through and have this rad edit to show, ladies and gentlemen, these are the Lobster Tales !
