Pinhole edit from la Bastard

Cool little edit from Nick with all the usual lot from Cardiff. I haven't heard it with sound yet because my son thinks it's funny to follow me round with a xylophone but I'm sure there's a decent soundtrack to go with it. He's got sick style of editing. Loads of ace edits of his over on vimeo, have a look here

Beast of a gap

Either a massive gap or a tricky manny pad

New flow rider for Sore!!!

New flow-rida Mike Arnold has just been hooked by Vince up north in t'hyde homeland Leeds. This guy Mike is an absolute beast. No idea who he is, where he's from or how he filmed this just in a day. A good sign of things to come from Sore

I'm such prick when it comes to uploading stuff on this dam blog. I started it with the intention of doing something useful and proactive that isn't watching DVDs and playing zelda. Anyway, a new post to bring you up to date with what's happening across the four pillars of my of my life that is Southport, Liverpool, Leeds and Cardiff First up we have Kev Barry's 'Megapixels'. As it is all mobile phone footage you may want to stand back a bit! Some good stuff here. Christian definitely wins on the background props count. The premiere of this vid was also on Gaz ‘Chunk Delicious’ Leak's birthday so everyone got twatted, naturally. Good do
(don't know who this image belongs to but cheers for letting me have off with it!) From the land perm and moustache stereotypes come a little edit of Geff in Rampworx taking a rightt fisting trying some kind of bs grab tweaker - amazing Leeds' very own Pat and Guy made this edit from what appears to be one of the first video camera. Camera shake, fingers in, more background props than pirate and pure dad cam angles. Sheer class This is where I'd include something from Southport but as nobody there seems to make little edits so I'll include a couple of photos that Ash took at Alchemy the other day. I miss Wednesdays at Alchemy, free food (not always gluten free but what can you do) and the most perfect block in the world!

Barcelona 2012

Words by Ben Perks

Barca may well have been ‘shut down’ many years ago, but who gives a fuck? The
place more than lives up to the hype as the city-sized skatepark also has mountains of
cheap beer, cheap kebabs and hot girls galore.

Only sex trafficking, cult meetings and skateboarding can make groups of strangers
fly abroad and share an apartment - the latter is definitely the most fun. I will clarify
that the group of 12 skaters consisted of the “Sowie” crew (Ali Watson, Ash Wilson,
Danny Holmes, Ben Fenner Stead, Chris Langford, Dan Brown, Andy Ashcroft) some
boys from the capital of sheep shaggers (Conor Charleston, Hywel Burke, Tom and
John Williams) and a Telford lad (Ben Perks) that didn’t really know anyone before
deciding to travel to this skateboarding Mecca.

One week was definitely not long enough to skate the Catalonian city, as any plans
to hit numerous spots on the metro line quickly evaporated when any ‘quick skate’
turned into 4 hours – the spots are just too sick. We were here to hit as much as
possible but also to have a laugh, this is probably why one of the best sessions was on
a pole-jam/hill bomb beautifully situated on the seafront. Still, some shredding went
down on a daily basis, as trying to take it easy and recover from the two-litre pitchers
in the Black Sheep the night before was impossible because the terrain in this city is
just too skateable and tempts the weariest of legs to muster some trick or another. If
you haven’t been to Barcelona book a flight now.

Ali Watson fakie flip MACBA: this place is chilling and full of tramps that smash
up tellys; you don’t get that on Skate 3.

Chupa Chup devourer Conor being keen as ever with an ollie to flat.

Hywel Burke tailslide: Hywel isn’t even Welsh but he held it down for the God’s
country crew with a tail slide at the bottom of another dope hill bomb, by getting
drunk every night and managing to fall in the sea fully clothed when trying to
commandeer a boat when twatted.

Tom busting out the shorts and the footplant hop scotch.

- Ali Watson getting his snoz bonk on.

Ben Perks (myself) ollie over and into a bank: I lost a pair of kegs to this.

Long John Silver: The world’s tallest 16-year old obviously couldn’t fit in his bed
properly, but the apartment we stayed in was amazing and very reasonable - as was
the guy who owned the place who nearly kicked us out for living up to the ‘Brits
abroad’ stereotype, thanks for not doing that.

Ali sticks his tongue out for ‘Danny the Grinner’ in his Espana shorts while doing a
bluntslide revert.

Danny showing what can so easily go wrong as Besos.

Ali Watson floating well above the Besos rail.

Ben Fenner Stead king of the nollie front foot flip wasn’t feeling the strip club; I
don’t know if getting his wallet nicked by a prostitute deterred him at all.

Ali Watson BS feeble: This spot was located right near our hotel and was skated the

Andy Ashcroft enjoying a paddle: It’s a holiday requirement.

‘Gnarly’ Watson gets gnarly yet again with a tail drop into a bank much to the
delight of some Korean basketball players.

Dan Brown Jumping down stairs: Chatting to Dan on the first day at Parallel, he said
he wanted to get on skating again – well he did more that that he killed it. Amazing
what a diet of vegetables and 6 oranges a day can do eh?

Chris Langford getting raw on the seafront with a transfer to side-disaster-thingy, nearly as impressive as when he managed to not spill his beer when getting hit by a Moped when crossing the road – lads on tour!

Ash Wilson and Andy posing for the Camera with true gangsta steez “Lost Art yo!”

Barcelona 2012

This is the 2nd attempt to get the picture quality better, it's a lot better now, apart from the fact that there are two massive black borders on either side. Oh well, as long as you can see the extreme maneuvers with more clarity. A totally most excellent holiday!

Robbie Tattershall - first light!

Another one for the Sore! Robbie Tattershall just got him sen a first light. Good shit. I don't have a copy of the mag to provide you with a decent image have a look on the Sore sight.

pissed up balled guy

I was thinking about doing an old archive edit of stuff that didn't get used in Sandwhore and came across this little gem of a clip that Darren Lord (Southport original) gave me. Being skateboarders yourselves you'll know all about these everyday alcoholics/drug addicts/prostitutes/ OAP fucking nutcases and just plane old bell ends that we come across on a regular basis. To be fair if your going to hang around in the streets then you'll run to them. Skateboardings rad
