Sale Time (part 2)

Yep all the sale stuff is now online too, so if you are after a bargain get looking, but BE QUICK! Seriously, even today on the second day of the sale people have come back for something and it has gone, if there is something you are after then i'd get it while you can, we are probably the cheapest place in the country for Altamont right now!

I have been really busy getting all the sale up so haven't had much time to find any vids, then I went on the shop Myspace and Force had posted us a little vid of some of the team, and they are sick too!
Check some of these guys out, the padless stuff on vert is silly!

2008 in photographs

THIS has absolutely nothing to do with skateboarding, but if you can't appreciate it as pretty amazing then you are a jerk.

A few people have asked about the Reskue video recently, most sections are finished and it is looking pretty rad,but unfortunately the computer I was using to edit is on hiatus until monday, and then getting copies made will take a while too during the festive period, so realistically it might not be officially out until the new year, if I get a copy done i'll probably play it a bit in the shop, but you should buy it you cheapskates!
I'm gonna try and work out a deal where you get a package of deck, tee and DVD at a bargain price, but you'll have to wait and see.


This video is gonna be rad, Jimmy Mcdonald section and an awesome line up of underdog skateboarders, oh and the first of this weekends Battle at the Berrics is up too.
Speaking of rad videos, the chief has put all the old Zero videos up on the Black Box site to download for $3.99 which is probably £3 or something, definately worth it!

New Dwindle stuff

All our new Enjoi, Almost, Blind and Darkstar stuff came today.
So we are now really well stocked for christmas, we have over 100 decks, 20 set-ups and 50 sets of wheels, making us the best place for skate hardware in Southampton, and beyond!

Tuesday, 16 December 2008

New bits and bobs!

We have had new Plan B decks from Sheckler, Prod and Danny Way and some wheels to match. Also some new Sheckler bearings and restock of the always popular Harmony decks.
Oh and if you are a fan of the Skate video game then maybe you will want to check this out too!
All the Christmas Enjoi, Blind, Darkstar and Almost stuff will be here on thurs/fri too!

Crossfire Christmas Jam!

If you didn't get to go then take a look at this vid, the standard was really high!

Crossfire Xmas Jam 2008 >>

Friday, 12 December 2008

Christmas Bits!

The first of the christmas bits for the weekend have arrived, including Independent lows at a new cheaper price (£45 a pair) and Bones Reds now a quid cheaper at £16.99!
We also have some Fox trucks which are a mid priced truck (£25 a set!) but have USA made rubbers and actually turn! They are definately good value for money and we are going to be getting a lot more in the future, if you are thinking of geting your first board or are on a budget they are great!

Thursday, 11 December 2008

Summer Bailout!

Here is a little video from the DVS chaps, including an NBD from Torey!

I have had a lot of mums coming in asking for decks which you guys may have seen which have since been sold! If you are asking for something in particular for Christmas make sure your rents put it by, or come in as soon as they can, or find out if we can order it for you. I'd hate for you guys to have asked for a deck and not got it cos its been sold, or your parents came in too late!

To keep you up to date with board brands - we have new Plan B and Harmony decks arriving all the time, including the new Plan B acid trip decks and wheels from tomorrow, all Enjoi, Blind, Almost, Speed Demons and Darkstar decks and completes are coming next thurs which are hot for christmas, new decks from Death, Heroin, Landscape are coming next week too. We have a whole bunch of Zero, Mystery and $lave decks in stock now, and new Real and DGK decks too So reskue is definately the best place to come for your skateboard hardware this christmas! And with our set-up deals its easy for us to make a set-up for you!

If you are giving your folks a list make sure you put sizes and brands that you would prefer! "Deck from Reskue" might get you something you don't want!

And don't forget that all Reskue brand clothing is HALF PRICE when you spend over £15 and the Harmony DVD is half price too, so maybe ask for a Reskue hood from Nan when she comes in with your mum!

We are open late nights from next week too!

Fourstar Tour

Here is a little vid of the offcuts from a recent Fourstar tour, its cool when the supposed offcuts are banging on their own! Maltos line is pretty sick, the Tre flip is super nice!

It's Cold!

OK so it is getting pretty cold now, and ramps and parks are getting frosty, so now even if it hasn't rained it can be wet with dew and frost, pretty whack! But come on, there are loads of car parks in town that are dry, and a couple of extra layers will keep you warm! We have been taking a block down to a car park in the evening, trying to get a few lines for the video.
It is taking longer than I anticipated to finish off, everyone just needed a last few tricks but the weather has been rubbish, and paggers swanned off to New York when we need to film his enders, hopefully it will be worth the wait though!
In the mean time I thought you guys might want to see this vid:

Pretty raw stuff, static style.
Oh and I heard today that Document is finishing after the next issue, it really is a sad state of affairs at the moment, Slaps last ever issue is this month too, and Slap was definately one of my favourite mags! With this recession all these independent mags/videos/companies really do need your support, it is you that keeps them going! And keeps Reskue going!

Emerica Cheer Up Tour!

Here is some footage from the recent tour:

Tampa Am!

Tampa Am is live again today, so click HERE to have a look! it is on at 12pm EST so 5pm here! It is cool seeing people skating regularly, as you only normally see slams and makes, sponsored people do bail too!

Saturday, 6 December 2008


In the Reskue blog tradition here is a link that in no way encourages you to buy anything in store! Kewday is an Australian company and their new promo is well worth a look, I had seen some footage of Joe Pease before on a tour vid, everyone was skating stairs and he seemed a bit weak in comparison to be honest as he didn't have much footage, but its clear that stairs and gaps aren't his natural terrain and twangy rails and ledges are, as he kills it on this vid! Andrew Currie is awesome, his boneless is sick! Take a look HERE.
Chad Bartie rides for Globe and we sell those!
Oh and we do have some Chrstmas offers actually! The Harmony DVD is only £3 with any purchase over £10, and any Reskue brand clothing is HALF PRICE with any purchase over £15!
and you can combine the two, so you could for example get a Harmony Deck, DVD and Reskue zip for just £59.23! The deals are currently instore only.
If you are reading this after looking at the ad in Sidewalk then hi, check back everyday for new links and vids! Bookmark us!

UK Mini Ramp Champs

Here is a vid of the UK Mini Ramp champs, presented by Mr Churchill himself!

More from UK Mini Ramp Champs on Mpora TV >>

Also check out Sidewalk this month, there is a Reskue ad whicgh we'll be running every month from now on, Marc has a photo at the Crossfire ramp jam, and Dean Jones video gets a review too!

Thursday, 4 December 2008


Tampa Am is coming up and there is going to be a live webcast of it this Sunday, i'll post a link in the next day or two, in the mean time you can look at this. parties definately happen during the Tampa contests and with 100's of skaters in party mode a brush with the law is pretty much inevitable, so enter your favourite skater in the search engine and see if they have been arrested at Tampa! The wonders of the internet!

Reskue vid

When i said yesterday we were finishing off the video, i should have said TRYING to finish off the video:

Curt, Marc, Paget and Tibs sections are pretty much done, so look out for offcuts soon.

Tuesday, 2 December 2008


We are still finishing off the Reskue video, paget is getting new moves all the time, but you'll have to wait to see em, in the mean time you can laugh at this:

Malto vs Donovan

THIS is definately the most exciting thing that has happened to me this week, maybe thats a bit sad, but the hype around this game of skate has been HUGE! Malto is obviously amazing, but Donovan is the epitomy of an underdog.
Oh and from tomorrow if you didn't know the government has cut VAT by 2.5%, which isn't much, but it does mean we will be knocking that much off all the marked prices instore!
And don't forget we now do undercarriage deals saving you around a tenner on full set-ups.

Antiz competition!

If you didn't know, Antiz are amazing. They are a gnarly European company in a sea full of tech ledge euro guys and when I saw their first video I thought they were awesome, and it wasn't just me that thought so, Steve Forstner was offered a pro contract with one of the big American companies.
We have a couple of copies of the Antiz promo DVD to give away and to win one all you need to do is e mail and say which company Steve Forstner was offered to turn pro for, even if you don't know maybe guess, include your name in the e mail and if you are a winner i'll e mail you back and you can pick up your DVD next time you are in the shop.


Elwood have been around for years and they have recently built up their team to have a mixture of some of the most stylish skaters around:
Silas Baxter-Neal
John Rattray
Anthony Pappalardo
Dan Drehobl
Kenny Anderson
and they have a few ams including Vincent Alverez and Guru Khalsa.
Take a look at the site for a few videos and photos of the team.
From the spring we are going to have a full range of Elwood clothing, but for now as an introduction we have the city series tees, which have a print of each skaters home town, all Elwood clothing is organic and they are members of 1% for the planet too, so you can look good and feel good too.
Take a look at the city series tees HERE.

UK Champs

This is a bit late but here is the first vid of two of the UK Champs presented by mr Marc Churchill!Part 1.

The Reskue Remix DVD is nearing completion, and this is the last weekend the team have to film! Then the editing will be finalised next week, we'll get them copied so it should be ready for sale in about two weeks!

Wednesday, 26 November 2008

Black Box again!

So all the new Black Box stuff is now online, including the Duraslicks and Zero bearings and there is also a Ten Tricks with Jamie Tancowny.

Tuesday, 25 November 2008

Black Box stuff

We have a whole bunch of stuff from ZERO, Mystery and $lave in again including the Children of Bodom deck in two sizes, we also have some new stuff including the latest Pete Eldridge deck and the Zero single skull deck in an 8"! As well as the new Duraslick decks, all that stuff will be online from tomorrow.
We are off to film for the Reskue Remix at Kings.

Sunday, 23 November 2008

Zero Decks

The aftershock of how good the Fallen video is seems to have come through, cos we have sold more Zero boards than usual recently, which is good, all Black boards (Zero, Mystery and $lave) are real nice, my last few boards have been Zero or $lave and they have recently introduced new Duraslick decks.
Slicks were popular for a couple of years in the mid nineties, they basically had a sheet of plastic glued on the bottom of the deck and it kept slides long and consistent, supposedly they were stronger but they lost pop really quickly and got a dull thud instead of a nice pop when you hit your tail, but Jamie Thomas team have done a bit of research and come back with the slick idea with a much thinner sheet bonded to the deck that keeps the decks pop and adds strength, the decks will retail at £59.99 and if they last one sixth longer than a normal board then you are spending the same as a regular pro board and if they last longer than that then you are saving money! And with christmas coming up now might be the time to ask for one! We will have some in the next week or so.

A couple of clips

There are a few new clips of Drehobl and chums up at Thrasher and this weekends Battle at the Berrics are up too, i'm currently two for six in the comp! pretty rubbish!

We tried to go to Eastleigh bowl to get a few last minute lines of Tibs for the video last night, it was absolutely freezing for me filming, but Tibs ended up in a tee trying to get his line, so the moral is ermmm skate and you get warm?! You need to keep skating when its cold, don't let the wheather get you down! As long as its not raining get out there!

Saturday, 22 November 2008

Skater Of The Year

Last Saturday Tibs came in and asked who I thought Thrasher Skater Of The Year was gonna be, I said Silas Baxter Neal, and lets just say it was a better guess than my Battle at the Berrics so far! Here is a little vid of Silas, the newest ATV to get the Thrasher award. A few people on forums and stuff have already been unsure if he deserves it, but how many other people have you seen do alley oop frontside flip wallrides? Silas is sick.

Thursday, 20 November 2008

New Nomis!

We finally have the winter Nomis range in, including the first ever heated hoodie, I did give a heads up on this a few weeks ago and if you want one it is worth being quick as I don't think we can get any more! All the Nomis tees are made with a small percentage of spandex so they are a little stretchy with a nice soft feel but keep their shape really well.
Also there is a new trailer for the Blind Video over on their website, with Morgan Smith who also rides for Nomis!

Tuesday, 18 November 2008

Mystery promo!

There is a new Mystery promo up on their site, its really good too, and a lot longer than I was expecting! And a few guys that shop in Reskue helped get it made too, it was the guys that buy Mystery boards! If you buy companies boards then some of the money goes back to the company to pay the pro's, pay for trips, pay for filmers, pay for web space! Everything needs paying for and its only because of skaters buying the boards they can do it, its obvious really, but remember that when you buy a cheap board from companies that have no team, in a shop that isn't a true skate shop then you aren't supporting skateboarding, so you know where the extra cost is going on a pro board and if you like a certain skaters board then get it! If we don't have it we can always try and order it too!

Sunday, 16 November 2008


Here is a little video of Affiliate skateboards, Neen Williams is pretty sick.
Affiliate Skateboard Company Team Edit 2

Dennis Busenitz...

... is sick, here is some footage of him on a mini and here is some footage from the recent Make a Wish jam, take a look at the other footage too, and remember that is Reals throwaway stuff! The actual vid is gonna be ridiculous! It should be out next year, couple that with the Workshop and Flip vids and 09 looks like its gonna be a good year for skateboarding!

Also a few people have asked if we are doing the "Something for the weekend" comp again, and yes we are, the plan is to do it every spring and then a park comp in the summer, we didn't have our own park comp this year cos we supported FOUR other comps in the city but if you have a preference as to where we should do it next year let us know! We should also have a few demos and a bowl comp at Eastleigh too.

Friday, 14 November 2008

Epicly Mike Mo!

So good its ridiculous!

Thursday, 13 November 2008

Mikey Chin...

Was a kid who used to be on Adrenalin skateboards back in the day, they had a rad team and Mikey looked like he always had potential, then this video pops up years later of him at Burnside doing loads of good stuff, here is a vid of some other stuff too, none of it has anything to do with the shop, I just thought it was rad!

New Team Profiles

Take a look at our website by having a clicky on the right as we have got new profiles for the latest guys to be sponsored by Reskue, Josh Clark, Darren Tate and Joe Paget.
We were also finishing off some filming for the Reskue remix video last night which should be out in a few weeks ready for your Christmas list, and it should only be a fiver too.

Also here is a little trailer for the next Consolidted vid:

Saturday, 8 November 2008

Dan Murphy... the next person from Black Box to have ten tricks.

New Plan B

We have a couple of new Plan B decks up on the site, take a look HERE, and get your answers in for the Berrics contest too!

Friday, 7 November 2008

Battle at the Berrics!

Anyone that actually knows anything about skating should definately enter this! Some of the games are seriously close to call, and there is always upsets in games of skate too! And to make it even more interesting if you send us a print screen of your choices and you are the closest then you win a reskue hood, hows that sound? DO IT! DO IT NOW! And don't forget your name, dumbass.

Wednesday, 5 November 2008


So Obama is the new US president, you may not think this effects you much so to bring it to a yoof level here he is with the other candidate.


Apologies there haven't been any updates in a few days, but the Plan B and Globe promos were more than enough for a while i'd say! Here is a bit of footage shot by Taters of some of his Isle of Wight friends on a trip to Revolutionz.

I'm putting together a remix video of all the Reskue team and if everyone gives me the footage like they said I should have it done and ready to sell in about 3 weeks, there will be full sections from: Marc Churchill, Greg Nowik and Jed Cullen, Mark Tidbury, Andy MacIntosh, Josh Clark, Curt Jarman, Darren Tate and Joe Paget.
It won't be all new footage but rather a remix of all offcuts, unused footage, web edits and old video parts we have, trim it all down and everyone should have a good section, with a bit of new footage too, we even street skated last night! Check the Reyno!

And here is a photo of Tibs doing a frontside grind into the deep end at Eastliegh bowl, if you have been there you know this is gnar, if you haven't, this is gnar.

Sunday, 2 November 2008


I have some good links for you today, first up the latest United By Fate from Globe. AND the new promo from Plan B! (click the multicoloured thing on the left)
A few years back you would never get this much footage for free, so it is worth supporting these companies so they can keep making videos!

Ok I hadn't actually watched them before I posted those links, but having just watched the Plan B one i'm kinda shocked, the skating is so good and it actually really made me want to go skating, maybe because of the lack of Robbie Williams! While a lot of people think Shecklers a douch his skating is undeniably good, his kickflip is double head height! the Danny Way footage is stupid and the Colin Mckay footage reminded me just how good he is, and this was all footage they aren't keeping for the actual video, only two years to wait!

Friday, 31 October 2008

James Hardy in HD

Here are some tricks of James Hardy, the HD looks awesome and i just happen to be bidding on a HD camera right now, so look out for HD footage of the Reskue team soon!

Manny Mania!

HERE is some footage from the finals of this years Manny Mania.

Tuesday, 28 October 2008

Fun times!

So it is half term and younger types can skate as much as they want, but yesterday I still get told "Its cold" "There is nowhere to go".
There are 10+ skateparks in the Southampton area and there are spots for street skating, you just have to look! Scouting for spots with your mates can be half the fun!
So in the spirit of making do with what you have todays vid is the Cliche Gypsy Tour, the intro pretty much explains the whole thing so take a look.
Oh and at least its not raining, in fact its really sunny, so watch this with your Coco Pops and go skating!

Sunday, 26 October 2008


I have been looking at THIS today.
If you don't know Babycakes is a "clothing" company, (they don't actually seem to have any custom designed clothing just designs printed on tees) which for some reason loads of people have got into and the guy who owns it, according to rumour, is now a millionaire!
Here are some prize quotes from them/him:
"Babycakes was spawned by an orgy of glitter, flashing lights, icecream and electro pop." "All the employee’s, models and photographers at babycakes have amazing hair and perfect bone structure" "Babycakes has become its own kingdom, a land where popsicles fall from rainbows and people dance in submarines that float in outer space. What began as Paul’s bedroom project, his own personal escape from the mundane has now become a place for kids world wide to sparkle."
Clearly it is all highly original and not just a result of the emo/electro thing 14yr old girls seem to be into.
HOWEVER if this is where the money is I have decided to expand into a "clothing" line, using Reskue lunchtime lurker Ranny as the face (he has the best bone structure and currently works in Lush, so smells nice for the ladies)) so I am pleased to announce "Rannycakes" coming soon in the worst possible colours imaginable!

Friday, 24 October 2008

The Final Flare

If you didn't know yet Lakai are releasing a boxset with 2 regular DVD's and a BluRay disk of Fully Flared soon, they are very strictly limited numbers and are actually being made to order, so if you want one it would be a good idea to pre order one now! It is coming out at the beginning of December so if you want one e mail me and let me know, or just ask instore.
Here is a trailer for it to give you some idea of whats on there.

New Duffs

We have a few new Duffs online for you including the classic Gambler in a few different colours. Click HERE to have a look.
Also the UK Duffs team have been getting a load of coverage recently, here is a video of some of the team.

Girl Downtown showdown

Not as interesting as the Creature obstacle in my opinion, but here is some footage.

Creature stupidity!

If you don't know what the Downtown Showdown is basically about four companies make an obstacle to skate and they hold a jam style comp on each one, the Globe rep told me the other day about Jake Duncombes ridiculous transfer, imagine airing blind from something 8 feet away into a bank steeper than the thing at Kings Park?! Stupid!

I'll post the rest of them too.

5Boro - Danny Falla

I probably go on about this company too much, but I don't care, 5Boro are sick.
I love the east coast style of skating, the spots are more interesting so the skaters have to be more creative. Danny Falla from 5Boro has been coming up for a few years and is now turning pro, check out this little promo vid for him and see why he very much deserves to go pro! I hate to say I told you so, but I did.

5Boro has pretty much come up by word of mouth and a relentless demo schedule (they do demos almost every week) they have only recently started doing print adverts so it is understandable if you haven't heard of them, but the boards are sick, really nice shapes and poppy wood and the whole team are rippers.

Monday, 20 October 2008

New Vans!

Hello, there area few new Vans in to tide you over until our winter delivery, including the Shambles, Rowleys most recent pro shoe in a ltd edition Kurt Hayashi colourway, a Black Label La Cripta Dos shoe, and the classic AV Sk8-Low in Black/Snake.
All three are the classic waffle sole, which if you haven't tried skating in, you should, they are super grippy which is why so many gnarly guys wear em, when they want to know their board is definately under their feet!
check them out HERE.
There are also some New Eras and Wallets too.

Sunday, 19 October 2008

Matix MK Demo

Thanks to Taters here is some footage from yesterdays Matix demo at Milton Keynes.

Ben Gore on Stereo.

We haven't had much from Stereo for a while but we are getting a whole bunch from them soon, along with Innes winter range, and Rebel 8 and Diamond too. All these companies are distributed in England by a skater owned distro and they are all skater owned companies so they deserve your support, here is a little vid welcoming Ben Gore to the Stereo team which always seem to find stylish well rounded skaters. The first new full length Stereo video is out soonish too!

J Rog and P Rod isn't a website I frequent a lot, it is J Rogers, P Rod and TKs website, but there is some footage here of them and its undeniably good, Rogers seems to have lost his overly gangster kiddy steez and is just solid, and the front blunt to boardslide is pretty creative too!
P rod drops some pretty serious hammers too.


Beer and fights and stuff! I guess footy isn't quite the same in France and Lucas Puig shows us his skills here. We will have the Lucas Puig pro shoe in the spring.

Saturday, 18 October 2008

Nike Footage.

HERE is a bit of footage from Nike SB in Europe, Justin Brocks transfer is sick.

Undercarriages and budget decks!

It seems that people prefer the idea of getting an undercarriage and a deck when getting a complete set-up, as it makes it easier to see the price, and saves you a bit of cash! So we are now doing undercarriages.
They are only available when you buy a deck, so you just choose your deck and an undercarriage and you are ready to roll!
currently instore only, but online soon!
Click to take a look at the deals:

We also have a Halloween special on the Blackmarket "Undead" decks, normally £29.99 they are £25 with grip! in three different sizes, instore only at the moment i'm afraid though web shoppers!
Combine one of the new budget undercarriages with a £25 Blackmarket deck and you have a complete set-up for £55!

Real Footage

Real skateboards are sick, their team always has awesome skaters that appear from nowhere and kill it, and there is more and more offcut footage from the upcoming Real vid appearing and its really good, so the kept footage must be amazing, check out some more offcuts HERE.

Wednesday, 15 October 2008

Fallen Ride The Sky! £5 off Black Box decks

So we have now got the Fallen DVD and if you buy any Zero, Mystery or $lave board at the same time you get £5 off! Bargain!

Too gribley for Dan Lilley

HERE is a link to a little vid of a couple of the $lave team at Woodward, look out for the 360 fish, oof! The $lave team is sick, and has one of my favourite skaters Jon Allie, they are also only available in independent shops, so we are the only shop in Southampton that stocks them! combine that with knowing the wood is the same as Zero/Mystery and you have a pretty banging company! Check them out HERE

Sunday, 5 October 2008

United by fate is a video from Globe that comes out every now and again, they always focus on one or two of their riders and the newest one is going to be on Greg Lutzka, with the last one on Chris Haslam, check out United By Fate HERE.
Globe also help Independent skate shops like us by having the "United By Skate" series of shoes, these are available first to skateshops like us before going to more mainstream stores perhaps the next season, this season we have the Black/Snake Haslam Sabaton model, which i got a pair of and they are really comfortable and great for skating in straight away, check them out HERE.
Oh and they Sponsor Reskue riders Greg and Jed too!

Indy/Cliche stuff

The new season Indy tees are now online and easier to select than before, take a look HERE.
And the new Cliche tees are now online too, click here for a look.


The Flip video has been put back to March, but it will roll round quickly, and check this out if you weren't excited enough already.

Nowik footage.

We have been a bit slack on the updates again lately, mostly because Kings park and Eastleigh have lights so we have actually been skating! Which does mean that we will hopefully have more local footage for you soon, in the meantime here is Reskue rider Greg Nowik with some footage some folks over in Malaysia have got of him, as usual its stupidly good.

Footage Attack!

Have a click HERE for a heck of a lot of footage from the Bones Wheels team.
Winter may not be looking so bad after all too, Kings Park in Bournemouth has lights that stay on till after midnight, and the new bowl at Eastleigh should have lights by the end of the week!

Real Throwaway!

HERE is a link to a whole bunch of footage from the Real team, considering the footage is throwaway the actual video is going to be ridiculous!

New Plan B

We now have a few of the new Plan B platinum series instore and online, so have a click to your right on the store and take a look, we also have restock on the popular Karma tube light decks and some Harmony and Satori wheels.
We also have the Silver in Barcelona DVD to view instore, which as well as the usual heads features Ronson Lambert, who is on Nomis clothing, take a look at some footage here.
We are one of the few stores to be getting the Nomis heated hoody in a few weeks, it has a battery pack and heating elements in to keep you warm in the winter, and sells out almost instantly everywhere with very little chance of any more stock so keep your eyes on the site if you want one! They sell for about $250 in the US which considering you normally pay the same in £ as $ you'll be pleased to hear they are way under £200, if you were lucky enough to find one on Ebay they have been going for £250+ so be quick!
Here is a vid of one of the Nomis reps showing how last seasons Hoody worked:

The Berrics

As usual there is a bunch of new stuff up on the Berrics, they now also have a site called MyBerrics a bit like Myspace for skaters which is pretty sick, join up and become friends with Reskue!

Tuesday, 16 September 2008

New Stuff!

We have a load of new A Third Foot decks in, have a clicky HERE to see em! And we also have a new Insight shirt which isn't online yet but is going quick so drop in the store! New Plan B decks are coming this week too, take a peek at the graphics HERE.
And our first batch of Globe shoes should be here by the end of the week too, including the very skatable Sabaton Haslam pro model.
Also we have lot of people asking for Nike SB, we haven't had any for a while but should have a whole bunch in the next few weeks.

After the Cardiel comp a week or so back i thought i would share John Cardiels part from the transworld video Sight Unseen:

We have a cardiel board in at the moment too.

Alex Moul On Video

It doesn`t seem that long ago that On Video was around but i guess most people haven`t even heard of it now! It was basically an offshoot of 411 which was a video magazine that came out every two months and On video was supposed to come out four times a year with more in depth looks at skaters, pretty much like Epicly Later`d does now.
This is a video of Alex Moul from On Video a few years back, I would hope you know Alex Moul is originally from Oxford way and used to skate with Reskue rider Greg Nowik all the time.
Check it out and then try and learn impossibles to realise how good he is.

Lucas and friends

This is a video of a comp that the shop that sponsor Lucas Puig entered, a bit of an advantage you could say! We have Lucas shop board from Cliche which is a pro board featuring his shop sponsors logo but they are £39.99 instead of the usual price of £44.99 for Cliche pro boards so pretty sweet!

Oh and take a look at our main site too, it has had a bit of an update.

Offcuts video!

Here is a video of some of the Reskue team and a few other chaps with all the footage that was badly filmed or just bad this summer!

Monday, 8 September 2008

Elwood Promo!

So here is a promo for Elwood with some sick skating in there, and we are actually going to be getting Elwood clothing too!
The team is awesome with Silas Baxter Neal, Kenny Anderson, Anthony Poppalardo, John Rattray and Dan Drehobl as well as some really good ams, and the clothing is really good too with ethically sound cotton and organic materials.
Look out for the front crook flip out and Kennys bigspin revert!

The Adventures of Joe Paget

In what I am hoping is going to become a regular feature we have here a video of Reskue local Joe Paget and the trials and tribulations of filming a new trick.

And as you may have noticed there hasn't been a post in a while and you know what that means? There has been loads going on! Whole new season range from Independent and Cliche, all online soon but come instore to get first look.

Thrasher comp

This is getting stupid, Thrasher held a comp for a very short time at a famous 16 stair spot with huge amounts of money up for grabs THIS is some of what went down. There is more coming soon too! The Backside 360 is so good! Leave us some comments with what you think.

Saturday, 30 August 2008


We used to have quite a few Crimson decks, they were really good quality and at a good price too, but Kris Markovich who was supposed to be part owner of the company left and took most of the team.
we only want to sell brands that support skateboarding so a company without a team is a no no for us, but they have turned up with a whole new roster of guys and they are sick too, we may get more Crimson decks in the future but in the mean time enjoy the new riders!

Factory tour

Here is another look at a skateboard factory, specifically Dwindle, I always try and explain this to kids but not many boards are made as well as these. 5Boro and Jart are individually pressed too. And that is why pro boards are more than the cheaper 30 quiders.

Wainwright and Grove

More Skateboarding Videos >>

A bit of footage of them both in Bristol.

Far East Network video

This clip has been floating around internet land for a few weeks now but if you haven't seen it here you go, apparantly this guy doesn't use grip tape but glues material on his deck instead!

New British stuff

We have had a load of new decksand wheels from Death, Heroin and Landscape including restosck of the Richie Jackson model.
We also got the classic Ricky Oyola deck too.

Epicly Later'd Competition

If you don't know what Epicly Later'd is then you don't read the blog enough, it is basically a kinda TV show with episodes on different skaters, finding out about there lives and such, but not your everyday rockstar skaters so no Bam or Sheckler, actual good skaters like Jerry Hsu, Steve Rodriguez, Andrew Reynolds.
They recently did a whole bunch of episodes on one of my favourite skaters, John Cardiel, and it pretty much turned into a full length documentary. Thanks to Vans we have three copies to give away, and you do want one!

All you have to do to win one is e mail me a good picture of the man himself to

I'll e mail you back if you are one of the three and you can pick it up next time you are in.

Get on it!

Fleet Jam

So there haven't been many posts in a while so here is a link to Alex Nevills edit of the recent jam at Shots in Fleet.

Manny Mania

Here is this years Red Bull Manny Mania in NYC, hate to big myself up too much but if you are a regular blog reader you'll remember me saying this event would be popular a while ago. here is what people have been saying about it.
Oh and we have been saying how good Willow is and he popped up on the cover of Sidewalk this month.
So knowing that unlike any other shop in town we might actually have our finger on the pulse of what is going on in skateboarding bear in mind that the Flip and Alien Workshop videos ARE going to be amazing, start saving kids, watching it crappy on youtube doesn't give you the same affect and isn't helping the companies who made em.
If you wanna rock boards from those companies we just got these too.

We also have Dave Bachinskys first pro model.

Friday, 22 August 2008


We try and cater to all types of skaters here at Reskue but it could be said my roots are more hesh than fresh so i was stoked to read a review of the new Fallen vid "Ride the Sky" which said this in: "This XX minutes of film will give faith to the hesh-skaters that skateboarding hasnt fallen exclusively to the new-era hat wearing, Xgames aspiring, MTV show having fad the current generation seem happy to let our culture die in. Skatings back - it's dirty, it bleeds, but if the Fallen can get up and Ride the Sky, skating is alive and kicking in 2008."
Read the full review HERE

80'S Bro!!!

Quiksilver put on an 80's comp recently, and this little edit is made to look like it is actually from the 80's, its pretty fun stuff.

As well as this we have had LOADS of new stuff in, Boards from Flip, Alien Workshop, Habitat, Black Label, Krooked, Real, Anti Hero and the first board from Dave Bachinsky which comes with the "what the f'#k is a Bachinsky DVD, all of which will be online tomorrow, We also have wheels from Hubba and Spitfire, Bearings and trucks are all well restocked too, including the new Haslam Indy stage 10s and they are online now!
We also have a load of new Jart boards still at just £35 in a whole range of sizes and some Jart wheels which are only 20 squid and pro models from Bastien and Danny Gonzalez.

AND we have a load of new Habitat and Workshop clothing which will be online tomorrow and some EXTREMELY ltd Krooked jackets and tees which are online now but have already been going before I managed to post a blog so be quick if they take your fancy!
If you are thinking of getting anything new this weekend is definately the time, we also have a load of the latest Strange Notes DVDs too, which you get free with a deck or wheels.
So to recap we have over 70 decks in stock, loads of new wheels and trucks and some ltd edition clothing, all with free dvd's why would you go anywhere else?

Gnarly Photos!

Here are a couple of ridiculous photos that have been floating around skateboard land recently.

Heath Kirchart with an absolutely ridiculous kickflip over a road!

Geoff Rowley with a frontside Flip over a rather high/large gap.
Heath will have a full part in the Alien Workshop video due out soon, and Geoff will have a full part in the new Flip video which is bound to be amazing.

Thursday, 14 August 2008

Etnies Barca video

Here is a video of the Etnies team in Barcelona and it is pretty much full length, you are pretty lucky these days to get full length videos for free! Skaters used to be really excited when a new video came out and they were always about £20!

3 FOR 2!!

If you hadn't seen already there is now 3 for 2 on all clothing online!!!

Sunday, 10 August 2008

I don't do myself any favours!

I keep posting up links that have nothing to really do with the shop, for companies you can't even get in the country, but its all skateboarding so its all good! Here is the Turf video, Mike Yorks newish company, if they become available we'd probably do em, but in the mean time remember we are Southamptons exclusive stockists of: Deathwish, $lave, Listen! HiFi, Momentum and 5Boro in the hardware dept, as well as Diamond, Rebel8, Altamont, Insight, Nomis, Official, Brixton and NikeSB in the clothing and footwear and if you haven't been in the shop for a while you might not have seen we now stock Enjoi, Almost, Darkstar, Blind and Tensor now too! Look on the Website!

TURF's Up ( from TGC Productions on Vimeo.

Friday, 8 August 2008


I might have posted THIS interview with Steve Rodriguez from 5Boro before, but i guess some kids might still not know how good this company is, here is what he says about their boards:"This is usually an "industry secret" and I've always been told to be vague but our boards are made in the USA (Alabama specifically) of Canadian Hard Rock Maple - our woodshop takes great pride in the manufacture and screening of the boards and we prefer to spend a little more in the process by pressing the boards with the upmost quality and precision. This choice was rough because to spend this much time on each board individually costs much more but we all know the feeling of how bummed we are when you set up a new board only to break it when you know it should not have broke. I'm not saying that 5boro boards don't break but I am saying that the craftsmanship is second to none."

Darren Harper

The link to Brian Tucci skating the ledges in DC reminded me of this part from Darren Harper, look out for the SWITCH tailslide at the end on a waist high ledge! Pretty ridiculous!

Cliche footage

There is a bit of new footage of some of the Cliche team HERE.

X Games!

A lot of people hate on the X Games and this year they tried to scrap Vert for a new "Superpark" vert skaters kicked off and threatened a boycott so they kept both!
Here is Rune Glifberg winning the Superpark padless!

Lord Of The Lines

Place Mag

There is a hefty amount of footage over at this site for a German skate mag.

Saturday, 2 August 2008


The ledges at the library in town are skateable again and some kids went to check them out the other day, and classically came back saying they were kicked out.
Just remember to go to spots after they have closed, be friendly and courteous when you are kicked out of spots, being an idiot just gives skateboarding a bad name and you can always get a bit of a skate.
I'm gonna post up a few classic spots now and again on here because I keep hearing you guys complaining about a lack of spots.
Most security in town is ok really and there are probably a lot more spots than you realise, just be glad you don't live in New York:

Stuff and stuff

We have had some new stuff in, the Deathwish DVD! Its fifteen bucks so kinda pricy but you know Baker/Deathwish DVD's are instant classics, it is only available for a limited time too so pick one up! (or watch it on you tube in crappy quality not knowing what half the tricks are)
We also have the Landscape Joleon Pressey aka Joey Crack wheels in, and if I haven't said it enough already he was originally from New Milton along with Benny Fairfax, so represent the New Forest and pick em up!
Also the X Games was on the other night and you could watch it live on the web, after Jake Browns little mishap last year all eyes were on the mega ramp, and it was Danny Way that nearly killed himself this year, oof!

If you are feeling more raw street than extreme then you should check out the new TRAFFIC PROMO, I personally really like Traffic as a company, all the riders are sick and all the footage makes you want to go skating straight away. So click the link, scroll down two inches, press play and get inspired!
Hopefully we might see some Traffic boards on these shores again soon!

One In A Million

There as a cool comp that SLAP do every year where kids send in footage which gets voted on and picked by the mag staff and then the winner gets a full interview in SLAP, SLAP is one of the best mags out there and always has awesome photos at real and rugged spots, and their comp entries are no different, check out the honorable mentions vid too if only for the front board biggerspin, one of the best of the new generation of tricks popping up.

Nike Footage

There is a whole bunch of footage up on the SB Site.
Wieger, Shimizu and all the others.
We should have the Deathwish DVD 2moro too!

Dev Green Comp

Cliche BBQ

Here is a bit of nice looking Cliche footage in HD.


Sweets is a video from Sweet skateboards, a Swedish company you have probably never heard of, it is free with Kingpin magazine this month but nobody buys magazines anymore.
It is really good, even if just to see a whole bunch of new spots it would be good, but the skating is really good too, pick a copy up!

Friday, 25 July 2008

Matix Lord of the Lines

Here is a bit of footage from the recent French comp, some good stuff and some sketchy stuff too, but does anyone else think Joey Brezinski is the Rodney Mullen of the 00's?

Random New York video

Here is a trailer for a New York scene video, with basically no one that well known apart from Brian Brown, i just like seeing the NY style of skating, fun looking spots and good tricks and steezy on the backside disaster!

Red Bull Contests

When i was in New York there was already talk of the Back to the Banks and Manny Mania comps, well they are on next month and i have a feeling it'll be rad, here is a look at last years ones:

Manny Mania

Back to the Banks
That wallride obstacle thing is so steep, Dollins tricks are stupid!

New stuff!

So there hasn't been a post on here in a while but as usual it is because we have been really busy getting new stuff instore, so check out the website or come instore to see a hell of a lot of new stuff from:
Speed Demons

We also have a new Plan B Sheckler deck that is not officially released yet!
And restock on our price point wheels, trucks, bearings and stuff.

Thursday, 17 July 2008

New Zero Stuff

We just got some of the new Zero flashback series decks and wheels, the deck ply is actually two tone dyed which is pretty cool.

Maloof Money Cup Final - 2

Here is the thing in its entireity, including helicopter angles! I think they are having a helicopter for the next Hoglands comp too.

Maloof Money Cup Final

Here is the final of the Maloof money cup, looks a bit like lambs to the slaughter to me, a comp where you have to throw yourself down stairs, but good skating none the less.

There will probably be better overall edits soon.

There are also all the sale Lakais up on the site now, and the last few sale SB's are still available but be quick!

Monday, 14 July 2008

Maloof Money Cup... a huge comp which they have custom built a huge concrete park for, which cost 200,000 dollars, and they are gonna tear it down after the comp!
Here is some footage of the prelims anyway, more footage on here soon.

CPH Pro contest

Some pretty cool footage of a really fun looking park.
