Heroin premiered their new am video, Bath Salts in LA last night. By all accounts the packed house thought it was a splendid flick with great skating. Biggest news on the night was that Fos has turned Tony Karr pro for the brand so expect to see his name etched on Heroin wood for years to come. Sick skateboarder, well deserved.
Look out for British premiere news coming soon, we hear there’s a good chance the first screening will be held in Manchester.
Rad to see Heroin getting amped on their new video that’s in the works. Bath Salts looks like it’s going to be Heroin’s next step forward with new faces who’ve bedded in since Fos upped sticks and headed for America. All ams, all on the up, coming this November.
Wake up to the news that Heroin Skateboards have released an explosive trailer for their next full video titled VIDEO NASTY. The team has been shooting footage ready for a June 2013 release so hit that play button for Chet Childress, Gou Miyagi, Daniel Shimizu, Chopper, Fos, Rogie, Tom Day, Casper Brooker, Craig Questions, Stephen Malet, and Deer Man of Dark Woods.
Heroin Skateboards have released their new pro decks featuring signature models for Daniel Shimizu, Gou Miyagi, Chett Childress and Deer Man of Dark Woods. All come over 8″ in size but if you are looking for a smaller rig then the Chopper deck from the New Ball Series is available as a 7.75′.
Heroin Skateboards’ Fos has been busy traveling the world with his paintbrush and pens. Check out this realy well cut video of his latest show in Vancouver with skating at various spots with Craig Questions, Deer Man of Dark Woods and more.
The BBC banks in Manchester may have been decorated lately with skatestoppers after 20 years of freedom, but it has only raised the bar for a different session as Joe Gavin, Rogie, Tom Day, Fos and Tom McClung demonstrate in Jim Craven’s edit.
It’s official. Heroin Skateboards has yet another new pro rider today and it’s Luda Crooks! Fos has been working his magic in California and has snapped up the king of all party airs today.
Talking to ESPN on how this happened, Chet Childress says: “I don’t know, it just did. Shimizu kind of said something to me. I didn’t know what I was doing. I got offers to ride for some random stuff and then I talked to Fos (owner of Heroin) and it just seemed like a real cool thing — and I dig Fos’ art. The board should be out soon and I’m going to be filming a video part, which I’m psyched about doing again and again and again. The main thing about this is that I’m re-stoked. I spent a couple months not really bummed on skateboarding but not really that motivated. I was skating, I love skating but I didn’t care about any of the other stuff and this got me fired up to do a couple more things before I disappear into this dumb world.”
Heroin welcomed Danny Shimizu last month. As Burnley’s finest moves forward across the pond, who do you think could be next to join the ranks?
Heroin and Landscape’s Fos has crept onto the DIY airwaves in Los Angeles since he moved to California this Autumn. He spends a lot of time shooting guns aside from skating and painting thesedays and also has found time to huck out a radio show on the Altamont website.
Fos FM launches today and kicks off with Slayer and red rum samples. Download the MP3 of the first show featuring guest Randy Randall from the band No Age here.
