Went to the Corby vert ramp on the past few days.
I’ve always had a ton of respect for the vert dudes but fuck me these guys blew my head off. Sam Beckett is insane. Buttery smooth powerful tech modern vert skating at its best and the dude is only 16. Sam is on Blind Europe that is quickly becoming a rock solid (as my cock) team. Jussi Korhonen is oh so gnarly. The high priest of vert skating and skating in general. The general. All the guys, young and old, were ripping the ramp and the atmosphere there is really really good. Also the resin bit (some foam topped with a plascticky slider) is so much fun to do stuff on. McTwists anyone? The past few days on the ramp have been a real eye opener. There is a great scene going on right there and vert is just so exciting. Like skating should be. Simply rad and pumped up. Taking shit to another dimension. Walking on the moon. Yessssssss! Thanks Hugh for the rides.
OK. Let’s put more shit on here as I haven’t bothered to log in for a while.
Slobodan Burgher – the uber cool Team Kaputt douchebag who skates more in his dreams than on cement these days (but will still have the last part in TK’s Amazing Grace ((Amazing Craze?))) has gone totally hyper virtual right here. This is like so fucking good and I feel like slapping a few secret (not so secret anymore after the google craze) dreams on the site. Ok. Find this: 2 meter drop into a brick bank about 2 meter high from the sidewalk (about 4 m in total) and into a downhill. Totally epic Omar Salazar spot, found in north London somewhere abouts one of them football grounds. Don’t bother to leave your house as you can google it and then slap it on the site. First idiot to find the correct spot will win a signed Jose enjoi board. No shit!!!! That’s a comp right there. Leave your email with the correct answer on the following SON site. The spot is red and gnarly. Jose is pro for enjoi and I really do have his board here and I will bloody fucking well send it off to someone. (Has anyone seen my room how much too much stuff there is?)
GO HERE: Skateable Or Not – SON! Take part – make art.
YEAH! Goddamn! I could just quote the whole text from this blog and glue it onto my bedroom wall:
Best of both worlds.
Elukka Engestrom has been in London for some months now. Adventures of Sika and Elukka to come soon. Stay tuned to the wires. Kennyland mini is the happy place uuuuu. Saturday saw an epic messed up session and pork chops bbq go down Bar23 Dalston Kingsland Road Square hot hot heat.
James Craig is tight. Where’s that link then?
Dead Kids is the best band playing in London right now. Did anyone see Selfish Cunt playing in the Shoreditch church? The atmosphere was epic though the gig would be slightly so so. But he-hey so many kids nodding on ketamine these days. What’s up with the folks these days? Fuck that shit. You skaters you know who you are doing that shit too. Kills your brain 100%.
The Stool Pigeon party this Thursday next to Hackney Central. Yeah fuck those guys do the best parties and the hottest girls lurk around like a bunch of sharks ready to bite some male flesh the boys are drunken dogs and the music is the best in town. THE music paper this side of the moon has the new issue out right now. http://www.thestoolpigeon.co.uk/
Spring is oh so here and summer is knocking on the windows. Too super hot road gaps keep popping up in and around my new hood. Hefe and Dany Hamard are heading to London. New park to be build in Stoke Newington’s Clossid Park. Have your pint in Pangena Project. Weird Shit right there in that joint. Skateboarding is the best thing ever. Yeah! Winter is so long gone and fuck this sort of indoor huudulum but hey man click it any way cause Samu is just so fucking RAD.
Yeah, “rad” is totally making a come back. Just ask Matt White. Word of the week. Word!
