Send snow photos and videos and win Plan B hoody

Skateboarding will obviously be affected this week due to the snow that is falling out there right now across the country. Some of you, no doubt, will take the initiative to film or take pics out there having a laugh in the white stuff, so please host your pics and footage send them in and we will share the best ones. Our favourite entry will receive a nice warm Plan B hoodie in the post to combat the cold too.

Don’t forget that we are also running our annual winter skateboard edit comp right now, so it’s a good time to get footage together. Details about deadlines and entry can be found here.

Winter Skate Video Edit Comp!


We all know that sessions are going to become increasingly more difficult due to the weather this winter, but as usual, the hardcore will be out there filming no matter how cold it is, indoors or out – so this comp is for you.


There are no rules. It’s a straight forward skate video comp. Your edit can be as short or as long as you like. You can film your video anywhere you like. In a skate park, on the streets, bowl, vert, pool, anywhere – just read this, get inspired, phone, email and get your friends together and start filming. If you already have fresh footage sitting right there from the last month or so doing nothing. Use it. The winner will take home £200 once we all decide who should win it and run online with others that impress.


Edit your video, upload it to youtube, vimeo or mpora and submit a private link to us via our contact page so we can watch it.


The deadline is February 29th so you have about 6 weeks to get this together.

Share this news and get amongst it.

Win: Independent Clothing Package

Independent are reknowned for making some of the best trucks many of us who worship the plank have ever had to pleasure to shred. But they also produce some very nice threads too, catered exclusively for skaters. Just look at that Lifer tee… being esoteric is common with skate companies and is not often a good thing, but Indy can manage to achieve it – and do so frequently – without losing a shred of their radness.

If any of that stuff up there catches your eye then answer the following question to be in with a chance of getting the lot. Just fill in the forms below and Yahtzee!
