Loads of stuff! Flip, Stereo, PJ, DMC Tee Competition!

Been a bit slack on the posts again, sorry! But a bunch of cool stuff has been happening, first of all the legend that is Don Brider (He prints all of our shop tees and stickers) recently got off the phone to the head honcho of Flip, who told him that the Flip vid is premiering in the U.S. on the 16th September, then in England a week later, so around the 23rd!
I go on about this video all the time, but Flip seriously have one of the best teams out there, the ability for them to pick up kids that go on to be top pros is amazing, just look at Bastiens part from 7 years ago and you'll see, flip front boards on 16 stair rails (3:36)that are unmatched today.

Luans part is gonna be ridiculous, that kid is so so good!
Combine this with the all out attack of Geoff Rowley, the straight concrete gnar of Rune Glifberg, a full part from the late Shane Cross and you must see this is gonna be one of the best videos ever!

All the music is being made by Baron, who is apparently big on the DJ scene, what I know about DJs you could write on a stamp, but there is a pretty good insight into the music over on the Flip site HERE and also some vids about it HERE

As well as all the Flip love we have reintroduced Stereo at Reskue, and just as I would have hoped sold the Benny board straight away! We still have a bunch of Stereo decks, and they are good prices too, with the logo decks being only £44.99!
Josiah Gatlyn has a welcome clip over on the Stereo Site, and its just as good as you would expect.

And this morning a Battle Commander from PJ Ladd went up! It starts out really well, but kinda standard, hardflip back tails Stevie was rockin years ago, but then it builds up into some ridiculous stuff - Nollie tre Nose Manny is sick. PJ Kills it, and as always we have some Plan B decks instore so show them some love if your feeling PJs part!

And the last thing is that we finally have the Reskue DMC tees! Available in three colours, the original black and red, a blue with orange print, and a purple with yellow print. The two coloured shirts are meant to be based on something in particular, but nobody seems to have noticed, so the first person to e-mail me where the colours are from gets a free tee! And I know who I have told so you guys can't enter! E mail - and remember your name!

Here is a pic to give you an idea of the colours:

There is meant to be a comp up at the Shirley Warren park tomorrow, but the weather is looking pretty whack at the moment, hopefully it'll be ok! We are donating prizes for the comp (I know what your thinking "Haven't they donated prizes to three comps already this summer?" yes, yes we have!) so if you are after one of the new tees and have no cash then maybe you should get down there and try and win one!
