Real presents Postcard another banging video part from Harry Lintell

Saturday, April 30th, 2022

Another month, another ridiculous full-length video part from Harry Lintell. Hot on the heels (ish) of Real turning him pro back in September of last year, Harry’s been in the States killing it. No surprises there, right? As a deep and valued Black Sheep family member, we knew Harry had it in him for day one.
Style, pop, power, trick selection, speed: old gap tooth has it all so add Postcard to the list. This is yet another banging video part from Harry Lintell.
As we discussed in the blog post celebrating his mum presenting Harry with his long overdue pro board, Harry’s in very esteemed company. The list of UK street skaters who’ve turned pro for huge US brands is small. The list of those who’ve done so whilst predominantly living in the UK is even smaller. It’s a testament to both the supernatural ability he has and to how seriously Real skateboards take him.
Mind you, which brand wouldn’t want a pro who can knock video parts out like this?
I guess Harry must’ve been taking notes from Ishod when it comes to productivity.

Watch the newest video part with Harry Lintell above first and then take your fingers for a wander and support Ashford’s finest. His latest ‘World Peace’ pro board from Real skateboards is currently in stock in 8.25, and we still have a few of his original two decks. Don’t sleep, big dog needs teeth.

If you fancy more video part from Harry Lintell, simply click the Harry Lintell tag at the bottom of this post, or indeed on his name ‘Harry Lintell‘ here. There are shit loads of archive posts with shit loads more footage.
Only a few things left to say really. Number one, that line which starts with the switch ollie over the rail and ends with the backside flip is a pisstake. Number two, Harry has the best switch frontside heelflip on the planet. And, finally, if you fancy waxing lyrical about how much you like Harry’s skating – go chat shit with other nerds here.


November round up: Mark Suciu, FA, Andrew Allen and more

Saturday, November 27th, 2021

Goddamn. November has been a heavy month for video drops. First up, the ever productive Mark Suciu with yet another part, this time for Spitfire wheels.
Internet gossip regarding his (possible) thirst for that elusive SOTY trophy aside, this is textbook Mark Suciu. Insanely difficult ledge, hubba and manual tricks thrown together in long, flowing lines and performed with consummate ease.
The Blubba tricks alone will make this one a much rewound clip for sure. Will it be enough to get past Thrasher’s post-Phelps SOTY panel? Who knows, either way Mark Suciu must be one of the most prolific pro skaters in history at this point.

November round up: Mark Suciu, FA, Andrew Allen and more

Next up, Vans very own portly bank manager. Andrew Allen footage never disappoints and this Pixies scored 5 minutes does exactly what you’re hoping for. Watch it, go buy a bowling shirt and some Vans Eras and then skate those near-vertical banks that you usually avoid.

November round up: Mark Suciu, FA, Andrew Allen and more

Tangentially connected to the above through AA riding for Hockey, Fucking Awesome’s sister co, is the latest video release from Dill’s FA vehicle.
Clocking in at a frankly unnecessary 14 minutes, ‘420 E. 9th Street’ is far from FA’s greatest work. I love Louie Lopez as much as the next guy but do I really want to sit through a few minutes of mediocre (by FA standards) LES footage to get to him? The good stuff in here is really good – Louie Lopez continues to blow minds, newer heads Diego Todd, Joe Campos and Nik Stain come through with the goods and Ben Kadow does some ironic high ollie stuff, so FA fans will probably dig it but I struggled to maintain interest if I’m honest.

In direct contrast to the lukewarm reception to the FA clip above is Dime’s latest clip. The explosively powered tech of Will Marshall rarely fails to hit the target for me and this high energy pop music scored banger is another winner. For such a pint-sized dude, Will Marshall has an insane amount of pop. Crazy ledge lines, huge bump to bars, getting tattoos in the middle of heaving night clubs: brilliant. Dime do it again.

Did you all catch this one? Jante – 10:34 a video filmed predominantly in Stockholm and featuring a bunch of Scandinavians you should already know (Gustav Tønnesen and Nisse Ingemarsson) plus a load of others who you’ll want to know more of after watching this. With truly outstanding camera work and follow filming – Jante showcases some of the most gifted skaters on the planet. And the spots? Rougher than a dog’s arse. Invest 10 minutes in this, it’s worth it.

Last but by no means least comes a new 10 minutes of fun from UK clothing crew Serious Adult. If the po-faced tone of that new FA clip got on your tits, watch this straight after for a palette cleanser. With a cast of Serious adult regulars plus Shaun Currie, Zeta Rush and Jeremy Jones – you can’t go wrong here. Peep their previous clips over at the Serious Adult You Tube.

The Gonz just hit the big 5-0, so it seems a good time to reflect on this legend.

 

 

Memory Screen have gone and put together 9 minutes straight of Mark Gonzales’ best bits over the years. This edit contains some of his most memorable clips from 1995 right up until 2018. Take some time to appreciate over a decade of one of the most iconic skateboarders out there.

 

This also feels a good time to show Krooked some love. A bit of history for you, Krooked was founded in 2001 by Mark Gonzales. Krooked was started under DLX Distribrution alongside Spitfire WheelsThunder Trucks and Real Skateboards. And of course the Gonz is responsible for the iconic graphics and art as well as promotional material & ads.

Vans X Spitfire Wheels Spring 2018 Collection

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

Vans X Spitfire Wheels Spring 2018

Four new colourways of Pro Skate models and an apparel capsule brought to you by two of skateboarding’s finest!

 

 

img_4047

 

Coming out blazing from the cold winter months, Vans and Spitfire Wheels have teamed to deliver four unique colourways for their Pro Skate footwear range alongside an apparel collection blending classic the iconography of two of the oldest and well respected brands in skateboarding history. Here’s your first glimpse at the Vans X Spitfire Wheels Spring 2018 collection…

 

First up we’ve got the latest addition to the Vans Pro Skate line-up, The Chima Pro 2, in Pink/White. We’re big fans of the new silhouette (and Chima Ferguson himself – obviously) which manages to be streamlined and lightweight without sacrificing any durability thanks to Vans’ Duracap technology which reinforces the shoes suede and canvas upper. The Chima 2 also introduces Vans’ UltraCush Lite 3D footbed which builds on the original UltraCush Lite insole by adding dual-density foam. Throw in a moulded heel counter and Vans beloved waffle outsole and the end is result is a responsive, supportive and long lasting shoe which is topped off with Spitfire artwork including a pleasant reminder to ‘Burn Forever’ debossed into the leather heel piece and ridges resembling Spitfire’s ‘Swirl’ pattern on the trademark Vans jazz stripe.

Another pastel piece comes courtesy of the Kyle Walker Pro in Baby Blue. Again, artwork inspired by Spitfire’s classic swirl pattern adorns the side stripe alongside the shoe’s Ultracush HD insole which, combined with the Wafflecup outsole, provides the best of boardfeel and protection. Whether it’s comfort you’re after or you need of something to absorb the shock of hammering handrails like K-Walks himself, this is the one for you.

Anthony Van Engelen’s AV Rapidweld Pro is every bit as robust as you would expect for a shoe backed by The Champ. Featuring a Vans Pro Skate Waffle outsole for unrivalled boardfeel and fantastic cushioning, thanks to the Ultracush HD insole, the shoe comfortably caresses the heel for a supportive and locked in fit whereas the suede upper is lined with Duracap to ensure you get the most out of AVE signature shoe. The Vans X Spitfire exclusive colourway comes in a deep navy with white leather highlights featuring Spitfire artwork on the side stripe and insole.

Finally, an Era Pro tops off the Vans X Spitfire Wheels Spring 2018 footwear collection in a colourway that burns as bright as Spitfire’s trademark bighead. Classic double wrapped vulcanised constructed, classic Vans waffle sole and classic silhouette – it’s only fitting that one of the most celebrated skate shoes ever made accompanies this collaboration between two of skateboarding’s legacy companies.

Harry Lintell & Co – Spitfire Wheels ‘Avenues and alleyways’

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

 

Harry Lintell & co for Spitfire wheels ‘Avenues and alleyways’. Super stoked!

Our very own Black Sheep representative Harry Lintell has been living the dream on an extended stay out in San Francisco recently as many of you will have seen via the Real Skateboards, GX1000 and our very own Instagram feeds. It looks safe to say that Harry has been taking care of business out there like a man on a mission with Spitfire dropping their latest clip ‘Avenues and alleyways’. The short but banging clip features a good chunk of Lintell footage along with Alex Conn, James Capps, Austin Kanfoush, Sean Greene and Matt Gottwig skating around the avenues and alleyways of the city.
