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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Epicly Mike Mo!

So good its ridiculous!

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:

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!

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.

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.

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!
