Intrepid rider, LJ, writes “So, it’s 2020, the year of crazy. After months of lockdown, no events, no meet ups, no traveling to places such as Wales, where all the best gems are (#WalesistheonlyhillinEngland), the much anticipated announcement finally came to open the doors – and even though things had to be postponed by a week – the season is reopened.Continue reading Snappy Sheepy by LJ Leme
With lockdown unwinding, albeit slowly, some of the UKDH skate community got into Wales for a much awaited event. For many, making the journey is as much part of the experience as the ride itself! Thanks to Sam for sharing his experience.Continue reading Col de la Sheepy : NYSB#2 by Samian Trollope
Can’t believe it’s August! What’s been happening through lockdown then? Quite a lot by all accounts. Some of our readers have shared their stories with us, so we are making a short series – or a long series, who knows:Continue reading Lockdown Stories #1
This excellent music video really caught our imagination. You’ve no doubt all seen and heard it, so we thought we’d gather a bit of background story and see what’s in the pipeline for the future.Continue reading Video : Downhiller by Dilly-Yo! Ft. Full Cask

When this video dropped into our mail box we decided it would be cool to create a Wild Skate series covering long distance pushing adventures by UK riders here in Britain and abroad. Alasdair and Tom journey across the South Downs – one of the UK’s more obscure but incredible national parks – in a 3 day epic longboarding adventure, carrying all they need on their backs and pushing as their own means of travel; safe to say, it did not disappoint!Continue reading Wild Skate : Brighton to Haslemere
Mad Magazine published this very humourous piece of work in their #200 issue back in July 1978; written by Tom Koch & illustrated by Don Martin with apologies to Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner“.
