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?


Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax

Monday, August 2nd, 2021

Can’t fuck with Harry now can you?
Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax is the latest northern-focused mind-melter from Black Sheep family member Mr. Harry Lintell.
Filmed over the last year in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and various other northern cities – this is the fruit of Harry’s next level ability and the removal of mainstream security from shit loads of spots during the Covid lockdown.

With long-time Mancunian film maker Sean Lomax behind the lens and Harry in front of it, this was never going to be anything less than brilliant and, surprise, surprise – that’s exactly what it is – brilliant.
It’s literally just dropped on Thrasher’s YouTube channel so we’ll keep the chat to a minimum – go watch Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax right now. It’s a belter!
Big up all involved.

One brief thing that made us laugh was the switch backtail in London, which isn’t exactly in fitting with Thrasher’s blurb about filming locations but hey, it’s only one trick and the ender’s filmed in a carpark in Stockport so, whatever…

Also, just for good measure, after you’ve watched Harry Lintell ‘Northern Grit’ by Sean Lomax, give your brain a reminder of another Lintell – Lomax collaboration. See below.

Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague with Munro and Barney Page

Tuesday, January 5th, 2021

Harry Lintell in Milan anyone? Vague magazine starting 2021 off with bang courtesy of Black Sheep family member Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague, alongside Charlie Munro and Barney Page. We’re not really sure if it’s appropriate to wish you all a Happy New Year seeing as our ever capable government have just locked us all in the house again but this will occupy 5 minutes where you’re not fretting about bog roll at least.
Hairy Lentils footage is always a treat, so seeing his ridiculous skills set alongside the equally mental abilities of UK cohorts Barney Page and Charlie Munro, is just adding delicious cherries to an already scrumptious skateboard cake. (Where am I going with this…?)

With UK-import and firm VX1000 favourite Quentin ‘@pertharms’ Guthrie behind the camera, you should know already that the filming and editing in this will be seamless and focused on showing the skating in the best possible light, which is sadly less common than it ought to be these days.
If you’re keen to see some of Quentin’s previous releases after watching this banger – we’d recommend starting with his 2016 maiden voyage (as far as UK footage goes) in the shape of ‘Brexit’ below.
If you enjoy that, (which you most definitely will) – head over to his pertharms YouTube channel for more.

Anyway, to return to the matter at hand, namely Harry Lintell in Milan for Vague: as you’d expect Harry royally fucks shit up, opening up the clip with a brace of tasty lines and introducing Mister Page and Munro who also deliver hard on the footage front. The UK trio are also joined by Milan resident and Baker skateboards pro Jacopo Carozzi who drops a line oozing with style and grace. Interestingly for a Milan clip, ‘Travel Corridor’ has minimal Milan train station plaza footage and offers up a bunch of new (to me at least) amazing spots from elsewhere in this Italian metropolis.
Two immense thumbs up for UK Primitive and New Balance Numeric rider Charlie Munro’s ender too – did somebody say ‘pinch’?
That’s it for now. Stay safe everyone.

A double dose of Louie Lopez courtesy of Converse Cons & FA

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020

A right old treat here with a double dose of Louie Lopez, dropping virtually simultaneously from Converse Cons and FA. Is there a better human representation of a skateboarding come-up based on sheer talent and humility than that of LA’s very own Mr Lopez?
Louie’s skateboarding journey has been documented and under the microscope from the tender age of 13. For many, this attention has proved to be a destructive force, releasing the twin demons of underage insanity and regrettable kiddy-style documentation – for a variety of reasons however, Louie Lopez has managed to swerve this wunderkind curse and mature into one of the most highly rated skaters on the planet.

Louie’s earliest exposure was as the long-haired and brace-wearing mini ripper announced in Globe footwear’s United by Fate (2007) and then cemented into skate lore in his banger 2009 Extremely Sorry part for former sponsors Flip Skateboards.
Despite the expected sniping of the time, aimed squarely at Flip skateboards‘ acquisition of Louie, (along with fellow murder midgets Curren Caples and David Gonzalez) Jeremy Fox, Ian Deacon and Geoff Rowley‘s eye for talent was vindicated once again with all three additions maturing into some of the gnarliest skaters on the planet a few years later.

A double dose of Louie Lopez

This first of this week’s double dose of Louie Lopez comes in the form of a three minute part (we think it’s solid enough to warrant that description) filmed in and around Louie’s native LA during the last 6 months of lockdown. Hands get sliced open by skate-stoppers, the infamous LAX banks get treated to an unfathomable backside noseblunt slide shove it, the Sister Sledge track rules and there’s little to no bullshit over-zoom filming. In short – it’s everything that you could ask for in a clip. Get it watched immediately.

If you’re not satisfied by the Converse Cons ‘Lola’ clip above never fear, as Jason Dill and AVE‘s FA World Entertainment have your back with a slightly shorter, slightly rawer but equally as cracking expose of Louie’s undeniable talents in the form of the ‘The Louie Lopez II’.

Louie Lopez’s “West End” Part For Thrasher

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Louie Lopez’s “West End” Part For Thrasher.

 

Everyone’s saying it but holy hell what a time to put out a part like this with the looming coveted Thrasher ‘Skater Of The Year’ title up for grabs. Louie Lopez was already well on target for achieving the peoples vote with a serious amount of footage throughout 2017 for sponsors Flip Skateboards, Converse Cons, Volcom etc etc… but pretty sure Ladbrookes wouldn’t give you good odds now after the below “West End” part for Thrasher Magazine.

 

We’ve been a big fan of Louie Lopez watching him grow up under the talent spotting Flip Skateboards and to see how he’s developed a faultless style along with taking skating to the next mental control level yet keeping it looking so effortlessly.

Monday, September 4th, 2017

 

Some of the Volcom team recently spent a week in the French capital, trying to dodge the summer showers whilst making their way around Paris and logging clips for this new edit – L’Waiting Game. The heavy crew consisted of Victor Pellegrin, Louie Lopez, Axel Cruysberghs, Collin Provost and Eniz Fazliov handling some heavy street missions and bagging some definite NBD’s along the way including that insane frontside bluntslide that sent the internet into meltdown. Click play below for four minutes of some seriously ripping footage from some of the best in the game.

Volcom’s Hell of a Summer Video

Monday, July 17th, 2017

 

It’s hot and dry, standard procedure for an Australian summer morning, but as the Volcom team approached Sydney International airport the temperature kept rising and rising. They had hit Sydney the same time as a heat wave before heading into the wider land of Oz for spot hunting and alcohol fueled fun with The Skateboarders Journal on hand to capture the action as they went. So one thing was for certain, they were in for one hell of a trip, a trip that just so happens to have collided head on with one hell of a summer.

 

Featuring Jackson Pilz, Shane Azar, Axel Cruysberghs, Dane Burman, Reese Warren, Scotty Standley, Jesse Noonan, Nik Stipanovi and Colin Provost.
