Cottonopolis Video – Manchester Skateboarding

 

 

So it’s been a hot minute since we see Sean Lomax going it alone again for another full length production of documenting the Manchester Skateboarding scene. If you seen any of Sean’s past work you’ll know his integrity and down right unique sick way he captures such a vibrant scene. We’ve compiled some of his finest ‘skateboarding’ work for you below but watch and be aware that all this work is made outside of his real job of doing high end TV production filming. The dedication is always a true reflection of Lomax’s craft and the finished product is always something that stands the test of time.

If you not already seen the hype for this premiere on social media then just be sure your in attendance Friday the 1st March (doors open at 19.00.) To give the newly named ‘Cottonopolis Video‘ it’s deservedly premier the Manchester Skateboarding scene will be treated to a real cinema style setting. This is not for those lurkers just after the free beer whilst squinting at a little monitor, this is sure to be a more rowdy yet civilized affair. Entry on the door will be a donation of just £4.00 and we’ve been advised the younger skaters may attend in the company of a responsible adult.

As mentioned above you’ll get a sample to what Cottonopolis Video production will be like. Get your viewing pleasure on and catch up on a whole host of amazing Manchester Skateboarding. Yes the scene is strong here and the amount of sponsored skaters within such a small proximity lends itself to being the most ever productive skateboarding scene the UK has ever witnessed. Big up to all the featured skaters no matter who you rider for it’s always inspiring to see such a tight crew as it was and how it should be. And obvious props to Sean for his continued documentation of the above mentioned skate scene. Always got big love for the Independent producers, artist, photographers, retailers etc as the true shine always reflects in there chosen art. Anyway… get watching and then get your cruisers decks out and mission on down to Hulme tomorrow for the fun and frolics of what’s sure to be a monumental Manchester Skateboarding event.

Graystone Skatepark Manchester – Black Sheep Family

Friday, January 25th, 2019

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.

 

Go follow Graystone Action Sports Academy Instagram for more details on opening hours, session times, prices and more.

Rough Cut: Louie Lopez’s “West End” Part

Rough Cut: Louie Lopez’s “West End” Part

 

louie-lopez-poll-jam-acosta

 

 

Louie Lopez seriously ain’t no joke! As the tiny framed Flip Skateboard’s prodigy to full blown mind blowing Pro. Take the time to witness his silky smooth abilities on a skateboard and take a moment after each ridiculously trick and let them sink in.

 

Massive fans of his work here at The Black Sheep, the guy just ‘plays’ at skating and makes it look all to simple and fun. Mr Mellow laid back reflects consistently in his huge footage output.

Who else has put out the coverage of Louie!? He’s constantly on one and as the skateboard industry rumor mill is to be believed then his full forthcoming part for Converse Cons is going to be another mind blower!

 

Again it’s thanks to Thrasher Magazine for putting this remix ‘Rough Cut’ edit out. With over 20 minutes of futuristic skateboarding by Flip Skateboard’s finest. Bear witness and keep them peeled as they say for announcements of his up and coming Cons part. More info from us soon….

Daan Van Der Linden and his brother Job

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Daan Van Der Linden and his brother Job shared skate section.

 

 

Daan Van Der Linden and his equally talented brother Job have just released this amazing joint section.

Filled with a wicked mix of tech lines and crusty spots filmed in their native country Holland.

‘Straatparaat x Bawlin part’ shows the raw talent of the dutch brothers and are both super talented on their boards.

Not only do they share a part they also share a stinking green hat, see if you can spot it in the section!

Rumors have been circulating about a new sponsor for big man Daan over the last month.

After many years killing it on the Vans pro team it looks like he might of finally been tempted to jump ship.

Arguably one of the best Skaters in Europe if not the world we can only imagine how much dollar he must now be worth to a company.

After turning pro for Anti Hero last year i wonder if he’ll be joining his fellow team mate Grant Taylor on even more trips and tours around the world with his new sponsor?

 

 

Check some more of the crazy magic from Daan in this ‘Over Stokes’ clip taken from his Volcom section that came out a couple of years ago, he truly is a wizard on a Skateboard!

Apparently as part of his new sponsorship deal he also requested that his brother Job be hooked up on the same company! Must be good to be Daans brother right now!

Can anyone guess where his magical feet might be taking him then in the future? Stay tuned for the big announcement coming soon!

A big favorite of everyone at the Black Sheep we’re looking forward to seeing what crazy footage he drops in 2018.

Swoosh! In a bit pal. x

Vans Park Series Malmo 2017

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

 

vans-park-series-malmo-sweden-2017

 

So the casual question was put out to us at the Black Sheep Family, “Do you fancy going to the Vans Park Series in Malmo Sweden this year…?” so of course it took all of a split second to respond and the next thing we know flight reservations where emailed followed by a loose schedule for our time in sunny Sweden (*please note we got very, very lucky with the Swedish weather as normally it’s pretty much like Manchester just with colder winters!)

 

The dates where set for the 2017 Vans Park Series in Malmo Sweden and the next thing you know we where coming into land via Copenhagen with a short trip over the infamous Øresund Bridge (go watch the Swedish TV series ‘The Bridge’ if you haven’t already!) For those planning a skate mission to Sweden via the U.K you’ll be pleasantly surprised to know your literally 20 minutes train journey away from the airport to some of Malmo’s finest street spots and ridiculously amazing concrete skate parks.  So of course the first port of call stepping of the train we headed straight down to the Vans park located in Kroksback which is slightly out of the main city center of Malmo. The first sight of the park seriously leaves you questioning yourself, we’ve all seen footage/photos/instagram from the park but to see it in the flesh gives you a whole lot more admiration for any skater stepping up to ride the luscious concrete waves it has to offer.

Of course it was like the who’s who from the skateboard world looking around the deck with skaters literally from all over the World in attendance. And of course Black Sheep Family lifer Andy Scott is now currently classed as a local with his recent move East so it was an added treat to catch up with old ‘In a minute Mr Scott!’

 

The first day down at Hyllie Kroksback skate-park was a little teaser on how this competition may go over the following two days,  you could see a load of the Pro’s and Am’s just getting used to the place but slowly finding the groove as runs got longer and more technical in the process. Again I was still blown away of how gnarly the park is especially after rushing in for a quick roll around and quickly becoming out of my depth whilst hurtling towards the deep end bowled out section. So it was back to the shade with some powerful coffee to warn off the days early start, then sit back and relax to watch the European’s first day qualifiers that soon escalated from the moments before mellow session!

 

Time was ticking and the first day skate was over with the talk of the town being a free Corona beer party down the local Street Lab skate shop in central Malmo where the good crew was due to celebrate their shop extension in the shape of a new Vans store in store. Rad to see the Lovenskate guys in attendance doing some one off board printing collaborating both the Vans logo and the locally recognized Street Lab branding.  Massive thanks to the crew in store for the warm welcome and even use of the WiFi to do the obligatory FaceTime call home.

Second day came round quick sharp after our first luxury night in the hotel (not trying to show off but we’re just not used to such surroundings!) and it was the five minute skate in the baking sunshine down towards the epic park and another eye opener walking in to see Ishod Wair casually destroying every piece of transition in his path. Seats where taken and it was time to sit back and watch the days silly skating unfold with some serious names now in attendance including Raven Tershey, Oskar Rozenberg Hallberg, Pedro Barros, Rune Glifberg, Sam Beckett, Alex Sorgente (last years overall Vans Park Series winner) plus many more global rippers.

After the initial day of qualifiers and general mental skating it was looking good for the following day semi’s and then monstrous finals on what was to be another scorching day of sunshine. You probably caught the live screening from the last day but go remind yourselves below with some official Vans Park Series footage capturing all the highlights from all of the above!

Oski Rozenberg – Nike Sb Elite Squad Edit

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

 

Polar Skate Co rider Oski Rozenberg comes through with his first full length edit for Nike Sb and holy hot dogs it doesn’t disappoint!

Been a huge fan of his work from various sections he’s put out and some of his now infamous Instagram clips are embedded in our brains. So, so rad to see this absolute ruler from Sweden come out of nowhere a few years ago to putting out a banging part for shoe giants Nike Sb. Watch below and try figure out how he even attempts some of the stuff on some of the most ridiculous terrain possible. Sure they’ll be plenty more to come from Oski as you know Polar Skate Co have his back and with his Nike Sb travel budget I’m sure the non stop Global assault will continue.

Atlantic Drift Episode 3 by Jacob Harris

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

 

 

The Atlantic Drift episodes have been nothing but spectacular. Each and every time I see a glimmer or trailer of the latest episode on various social media aspects it definitely gets the blood flowing. This episode above is the latest one to the collection and I would be surprised if you haven’t already hit the play button. Like before in the previous 2 episodes it has been filmed and edited by London’s shredder Jacob Harris. A film-maker who is not only incredible at producing some fine edits but who is also a beast himself on the other side of the lens. Back to the ‘Atlantic Drift’ episodes because there seems to be a theme flowing throughout the individual edit too. For example the first one was located in just London, the second at St Paul’s which is an infamous and widely known spot to the 3rd and freshest where the French city Paris holds the limelight. Sit back, relax and enjoy this masterpiece as it doesn’t get much better. If you missed the first 2 episodes then watch them below or you could watch all three anyway for the vibes of a full length video. Sorted!

 

 

 

Considering all the ‘Atlantic Drift’ edits have heavily featured the Isle boys why not consider them for your next board choice? Hit the link to scope out the latest Isle Skateboards decks and completes.
