Two for Tuesday and one for Lifestyle – Stuart Reynolds

Two for Tuesday. When he’s not gripping boards he’s swarming the streets. Few weather the storm as much as Stu. Skateboarding is a lifestyle and when you’ve been at it as long as this and still keep rolling with the punches like you picked up the board yesterday, then you’ve got a contender. Every time I see Stu Reynolds skate… Read more →

Introducing the Knee Cruncher

There’s much to be said about the simple pleasures in life. This could be for some a gentle stroll on a cold winters day. Fortunately for those of a more temperamental nature it could be hoicking themselves as high as they can into the air from a transitional shaped wavey press of ply.   Investing in this jump ramp from Graw is one… Read more →

Mad Hatters part 3 (stuck in a bubble)

Wood to wallride creation we created to skate just the other day. John Bell wasted no time in surfing the concrete wave we found underneath a homely  monolith called something something tower. Chris Barrett fought a tough fight to bring the rock fakie home. A place with more to skate for those who seek and destroy and seek some more.… Read more →

The Mad Hatters part 2 (unknown shredders)

I don’t know who this is. I’ve forgotten the name. It’s a powerful flip down by the fountains and a challenging bench to hop. This post is for all the unknown skateboarders that frequent the blocks and the skateboarders that travel to roll the granite palace. Big up skateboarding. It’s not all about the notoriety, fashion and fame, some of… Read more →

The Mad Hatters part 1 (Dave Monaghan)

They say the apple never falls far from the tree, well I say the skaters in Stockport never fall far from the blocks. Having skated Stocky for well over 15 years I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s something good about skateboarding in Stockport. First came Bones skatepark and that world class sorely missed indoor figure 8 bowl. Personally I… Read more →

Vagrant Art Wallrides with Jiri and Dan

In the dark crevasse of a Manchester city centre underpass near a sleeping homeless man is some concrete. It started as a D.I.Y project by a few local skaters and it’s grim, proper grim. Jiri pops his nose from wallride on Toymachine wood. That magic is real, them feet are quick. The crete is bad, the floor is bad, the… Read more →

Disco Blocker

Juxtapose disco moves Now I’m not one for sentimental ramblings posted in an unseen skateboarders blog but the disco lights at our local seem to hold some magical presence that skate rats hover around hypnotised like moths on a light bulb. Today wasn’t going to be something spectacular, it was going to be another square boring dull day full of… Read more →

Kerbside for the Boredom

Boredom is a terrible thing. It’s 99.9% of the reason people do stupid things. Photography visually distracts and delays some boredom for perhaps a minute and film a little longer. The internet is best though. Build a thing and skate it, no more boredom. Skate a thing, shoot a photo and put it on stupid bloody tuesday, I’m not bored.… Read more →

Four at Stocky Blocks and one for D.I.Y Doozer

Stockport fountains are a hive of skateboard activity. It’s also a hive of smashed glass, mislead youth and trouble. That’s none of my business. I like to skate, shoot photos and hopefully project something worthwhile, something that’s not a complete waste of time. I think there’s a little skate scene here, and by scene I mean a counter culture. At… Read more →

Skateboarding Walls like Wheels of Water

It’s seldom said that walls are a comfortable thing. The partition of space creates illusions. Street after street we follow walls, we live in walls and we use them for punishment, law and order. Nothing can be more real than four walls. Our society loves walls my psyche creates them and like most things we can skate them. Walls are… Read more →

Caged Juxtapose Rage

Leo MacDonald Oulds is one of the many animals trapped in the cage. Did the council think they could contain us that easy? A cage just makes us skate more, backfire dudes now we’re cooking on urethane. Leo smashes skateboarding. The pictures are testimony to this. Nothing will fill my boots more then shooting pictures here. To roll bones over… Read more →

Lucien and the Projekts jump ramp

Keep it simple, the youth are getting better and better at skateboarding. If its not the coaching or the facilities it’s the scene that keeps driving the youth to improve and progress. Lucien is killing it, just check the photos we shot. No matter what you do the generation after are going to try and improve on your legacy. It’s… Read more →

Underground Wonderground

Half of all skateboarding occurs in places that have another purpose. I skated with the Bazra on a cold rainy evening around a multi storey car park and we took these shots. The kickflip through the rusty iron structure ranks as one of the gnarliest kickflips imaginable. The elevation needed to clear the low bar and shapes thrown to fit… Read more →

Sun, moon and wooden spoon

Skateboard by day Skateboard by night   Sun, moon and a wooden spoon. Riding a skateboard can be poetry in motion. A form of self expressive anarchy on the streets. Twisting with gravity by individual means and with infinite combination in the parks. Just the feeling of rolling a hill feels poetic, majestic, fast, especially on a big wheeled cruiser.… Read more →

See ya later Sidewalk

Today the UK skate scene heard some bad news. After twenty years of publication the main UK skate magazine ‘Sidewalk’ has hung up its paper boots and stopped going to press. Instead choosing to focus directly on digital content. To be expected really as everything is more ‘immediate’ today and with digital social media you can share others work and… Read more →

Archive Four (street lines come in two’s)

Ten lines of two tricks over 10 years (or more) from early 90’s forgotten street legends and modern day plywood wizards alike. Archive four became a game of numbers and street sounds. Things to look out for. The background lurker taking a slam, a pressure flip up a block, the background lurker posing a tail stall and Reiss actually street… Read more →

Archive Three (S.B.T the Suzuki Method Man)

Archive three probably spans a decade in 1 minute 43 seconds. It’s got a bit of Woody skating the old Manchester courts double set and some ancient Skulls footage of Adam Leishman who kicks it today in top Manchester band “Suzuki Method” and who’s younger brother Jay just happens to be well good at skateboarding. There’s a big spin disaster… Read more →

The marketing budget is overflowing. Professional sandwich maker looking for a change of direction. Part-time shop keeper self-tapping ornament. Welding is a hobby.
