Whilst Joe’s currently holed up nursing an injury this part for Darkstar Skateboards came from no where!

If you know UK skateboarding and the spots/weather we have to deal with you’ll appreciate this part even more. Joe Hinson ain’t afraid to go full tilt on the ruggedest terrain. Half the “spots” in this “Rugged Kingdom” part are made up of pieces of ply run up’s and dirt landings. Imagine hitting a huge rail knowing what you had to ride out of if you make the bottom of it!

 

Seriously for those unaware parts like this don’t come by so often with such heavy hitting skating on UK home turf. These rails, gaps and conditions don’t lend themselves to hammer parts so believe how shocking this Rugged Kingdom part really is.

 

Hat’s off to Darkstar Skateboards representing a UK rider and backing him hard with his now third full part. No doubt Joe’s mind is already planning out the next one after these few months injury hiatus.

 

Good work Joe and prop’s to Darkstar and Dwindle Dist for the support. Now get your viewing on below-

If you’ve not already bought your ticket for the opening night we suggest you move swiftly as it’s already at full capacity!

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.

Boys Of Summer Two – Thrasher Magazine

 

Now this is one not to be missed! Boys Of Summer Two via Thrasher Magazine hits the spot like no other. The fun filled vibes from the wide variety of skateboarding’s elite is just straight up motivational.

 

Filmed at spots Worldwide with plentiful cameos from the legends normally hidden behind the lens. The pro and am list is pretty endless also with appearances from the list featured below. And say what! even new Eric Koston footage mixed in with his steep street skating history of some unseen clips. Then of course the notorious Guy Mariano never fails to impress. He may only put out the best of the best footage nowadays but my goodness it’s pure gold dust as ever!

 

Basically this video is one showcase (and film reel) of the fun side of professional skateboarding. As it is in every car-park around the World it’s just skaters having a blast with there mates. As mentioned even down to the filmers/photographers getting there shine.

 

Some stand out highlights without giving to much away. Jerry Hsu ‘Red Red Wine’ part is pure style gold. Gonz cameo just because he’s the Gonz basically. The snippet of the previously mentioned Guy Mariano. Skateboarding’s magician Rowan Zorilla, so so good at any spot and natural style/ability way beyond his years. This one will take a few watches, not only is it over the hour mark but there’s just so many damn folk you’ll miss the first time round. Feel the good times flow in this much loved sequel for ‘Boys Of Summer’ and serious props to all involved in bringing this master piece together.

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.

Ryan Townley – Elite Urethane OJ Wheels Part

Ryan Townley – Elite Urethane OJ Wheels Part

 

Ryan Townley is a footage machine seemingly always stacking clips. Here he is with a couple of minutes of banging clips in this latest OJ Wheels ”Elite urethane” edit. Townley, as we are all too aware, has that knack of popping really, really high. As the saying goes what goes up must come down, so his choice of wheels has got to be important right? Most importantly, what’s his pop secret? Whatever it is he took it to the streets in this banger of a part for his first pro Elite wheel.
