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!
London Longboards is the biggest longboard crew in the UK. Daniel Baker recently made a mini-movie showcasing some of the lads in the group. With Downhill, Dance, Freeride, Street, Tech and Freestyle the Longboard Movie is full of talent from start to end. Continue reading “Video : ‘Steezy’ by Daniel Baker”

Freddie Hanbury sent this in recently, well worth a watch …
Jenny Schauerte is a freelance Communication Designer – as well as one of the world’s top downhill skaters, wrapping up 2016 with 2nd place in the International Downhill Federation women’s league. Jenny spent two years researching her topic, travelling the world, skating nigh-on everything, filming and editing to bring us this insightful portrayal of a downhill skater’s mind.
Kicking off our new ‘Tube Tuesday’ section is a recently released full length (just short of 40mins) epic from the lads at Sheffield Uni Longboard Society recounting their 1000km journey …
There’s a pretty cool video, recently released by Alfie Marsh of Longboard Scotland, doing the rounds. I asked Alfie to share a bit about the background to it’s making and his time with the crew.

We spoke to Cam & Henry to find out more about their drone/skate adventure across Europe. Five weeks, eight countries, three skate events and twenty hours of footage crammed into under ten minutes.

This was my third ‘Eurotour’. Good friend and Videographer Henry Hayhurst joined me for the whole trip. We began the month-long skate pilgrimage in the UK. Then made our way into Germany to pick up Deen Mondt. Our car crew complete for the entirety of the trip.
Our first real stop was in the Czech Republic, at the infamous Kozakov Challenge, then we travelled deeper south to Slovenia for the week long KNK freeride. The last scheduled stop on the list was the Italian race Verdicchio. Apart from these three events we had no plans, only to go with the flow and see what happened. This was the best decision we made. In past years I’ve found that over-planning makes a structured and difficult trip. The best things to happen on the road are often the unexpected.
Once we stepped foot back in the motherland we had 20 hours of footage to trawl through and edit. Two solids day and shabam, here she is: Europa. Watch in 1080p for maximum enjoyment levels.

I got a message from Cam Deegan asking if I wanted to film him in Europe . With no hesitation I bought a drone and booked a month of work. A week later I found my self driving to Frankfurt. It was a real eye opener, it was my first time in Europe and seeing downhill long-boarding racing.
It was the first time for many things and flying the drone was one, making my 15 second edits (which you can find on my Instagram) to the eight minute feature below. I could see my progression in the editing and the smoothness of the drone operation. It was also my first time making a skate edit. For me “Europa" is the beginning of my film career.
Brianne Freeride 2014 – The UK's only closed-road longboarding freeride in 2014, held in the picturesque outback of mid-wales. Here's the recap video. Enjoy.

This video made ‘Pick of the Day’ because it is so simple. Film your mates skating everything, any weather, no hype. Love it.
I don't really know a lot about this video, all i know is that someone called Thiago is bombing down a really sexy hill and he gets SUPER close to the grass on one hell of a right-hander! Props to those who made this video, UKDH!
Steezy, Steezy, Steezy!! Check out those switch toeside slides… gosh! Jimmy Rhia Killin’ it.
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.
