UK longboarders slashing through the winter wetness in Saltash, comedy video edit with some tasty riding from Sam Holding, Ryan Weekly, Bhodi Keen, Helena Bee, Ross Monks and some guy by the name of Dylan Penis Goblin. Video by JCW Media.
Steezy, Steezy, Steezy!! Check out those switch toeside slides… gosh! Jimmy Rhia Killin’ it.
Today’s lesson boys and girls – is how to bust out some stylish switch heelside checks!
Matt Bates is a heavily sponsored rider for Lush, Cult, Hopkin, Dekine and a few others and it’s clear why. He can shred the hills just as hard as he can schralp a schoolyard.
Check out this latest video of him!
This video encapsulates my favourite elements of longboarding; landscapes, no hands down road slaying, travelling with friends and, of course, Marisa Nunez.
2013 is a big year ahead of us all, make sure that you make every effort to skate new places and progress your skills as much as you can. Most of all, keep yourself stoked!
I also found this picture from the Snake Skeleton downhill, it speaks for itself really and it gives me goosebumps just thinking about riding like they are. Chargin’ !
Many of you may have heard of Oliver Slaughter and the videos he produces of him and his friends’ adventures on longboards. Here is the latest two of his videos from his trip with the Newton’s Shred family to the ‘Peyragudes Never Dies’ race in the Pyrenees.
Keep an eye out for the familiar faces of Josh Monk, Kami San, Shaine Fourie and Oliver Slaughter shredding with the big guns of downhill skateboarding. Josh crashing at 60mph, Oliver trying to footbreak and squirt a waterpistol backwards have to be my two favourite clips of the series.
The landscapes captured in the Pyrenees are incredible, the riding is tight and the videos leave you pumped to go riding! UKDH!
Sheepy hill was a downhill gem in the heart of Wales, a hill with about half a mile of downhill into 2 switchbacks, one tricky left and a final tight right-hander that spat you out onto a gnarly bridge. The hill is surrounded by soft ferns that almost makes crashing a delight and it can be spotted by the rider from the top as you can see the next few miles of road and traffic conditions. The road was resurfaced with a classic Welsh pebble-dash coat to everyone’s horror in 2011 rendering the hill unrideable. Gradually the road has been compacted down and worn back down to its former glory (so reports have said) and it looks like a trip to Wales will be back on the cards for 2013!
Skip to 3:15 of the video below to see how the hill got its name.
UK Shredder for Original Skateboards Sam Holding has just released this 2012 edit and it’s frickin’ gnarly! Sam is clearly at the high end of the UK talent with editing skills to match! Teamed up with the perfect song choice, this is a must watch 5 minutes of skating excellence.
You probably saw this earlier and, like me, did a little bit of wee. Liam Morgan totally shreds in this promo edit for Caliber Trucks. Now you all watch this while I check Virgin Airlines for the cost of flights to San Francisco. Who’s with me? I’ll see if I can get a group discount and just check we can take our boards as carry-ons……
For those of you that went you’ll know how much of a sick day this was. But here is a video from the event for those of you that didn’t make it. What a way to raise thousands for charity… Doing what we all love, longboarding!
Here is the making of video for the Smart Car advert we recently posted. Tandem skills! I wanna see some huge tandem standies – who’s in?
Coverage from the Van Dem Freeride. A sick 2 days of shredding on a gnarley hill just outside Exeter. Looking forward to 2013!
Look out for the first issue of Thrill Magazine for full coverage on the event. Due out in November 2012.
