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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
