Barcelona is rad + some rad videos.

So the guys who went to Barcelona are back, Joe Paget, Josh Clark, Cam Butterworth, new addition Mike Halls and sticker flow Ray Ray all killed it out there! I was a bit worried that with a place like Barcelona that has been skated by pretty much all pros, that it would be hard to get tricks that weren't ABD years ago, but Paget came up trumps! We are now working on finishing off the edits for the Reskue video and HOPEFULLY it should be finished pretty soon! The trip inspired them all to get a last few tricks back here in the UK, so as long as it stops raining for a while we are pretty much done! For Photos of the trip check out our Facebook!

As well as this there have been a bunch of rad videos popping up in internet land, as well as the team trawling the web trying to find videos of some Barca spots, here are a few:

First Phil Zwijsen, I think I posted some of him before, but the guy kills it, speedy skateboarding always looks good!

The spot at the end of the last video is awesome, we all missioned out into the suburbs of Barca to find it, but I needed to catch a plane so it ended up with myself and Josh getting quick lines, but some of the stuff that has been done there is ridiculous!

Peter Watkins has just turned pro for Black Label, and is welcomed with this vid:

Plus the chaps at Witchcraft have been putting out videos of each team rider skating one of the new decks:

Aaron Herrington somehow has another part too?! I'm confused with all the footage this guy has, i'd be stoked if BLOOD WIZARD had a UK distributor!

And here is Mystery rider Sascha Daley, he is filming for the new HD Mystery video and so all the VX footage that isn't HD got used for this Mag Minute, and its bangin!

Now go shred!

Aaron Herrington

I'm gonna do what I always seem to end up doing on this blog and hype something that is nothing to do with the shop, ah well its all skateboarding, and good skateboarding to.

I have seen a few videos of Aaron Herrington, and wondered where he was getting all the footage from, surely he hasn't put out three parts in a year?! But yeah I guess he has, crusing street steez and interesting spots, definitely a winner!

Herrington is legit!

Vans Downtown Showdown,some street and the RESKUE VIDEO!

This is a wierd one, basically the companies involved have the chance to make an obstacle, and in skateboarder fashion they all try and outdo each other with the ridiculous gnarliness of each thing, the Zero contraption looks like its hungry for injuries, and the Foundation thing just looks like it wants to break legs, but somehow people get through it relatively unscathed! Having said that there are plenty of slams involved to!

As usual there hasn't been a post on here in a while, we are kinda going with the Facebook as it is on the front page of the website and you can comment etc, and we like to know what you think!

I hope by now you have all seen the Romsey jam video and the new trick tips, if not you can link from the Facebook box, but here are a few more videos for you too:

As usual I have been getting a lot of questions about the Reskue video, and also some kids asking if we are making one! Dunno where they have been for the past few years?!

Either way it is actually making progress, i'm well aware it keeps getting put back!

First because of Greg arriving with months worth of travel footage which I quickly made into a rad section!
Then Cam came back from New Zealand, went through about fifty tapes and has a strong section but wanted more, and has been killin it!
Then there is the fact that Josh and I very rarely get footage!
Darren finished off his section last night however, and with a trip to Barcelona coming up in two weeks time that is now the (supposed) deadline for Cam, Josh and myself!

We also have a couple of new team riders which already have some banging footage, but haven't put out a welcome clip and will let their (probably combo) section in the video do the talking! Jed is also pretty keen to film a bunch as he has been killing it lately, and thats about it, this could actually be happening!

The video was meant to be the Reskue Remix, taking a bunch of footage and remixing it into new parts just to show the new generation of skaters in Southampton what the squad have been up to, but now some people have all new sections, so we need a new name for the video! Let us know if you have any ideas!

In the mean time check out some offcut stuff of our filming missions:
