Pretty Sweet UK Premiere gallery

Photography by Ben Larthe

As the Trunk Boyz were getting tattooed in an ink joint down the road and necking sake bombs, art was being hung in the Hoxton Hotel, hair was being pulled at the Richmix, and a steady wave of people from all corners of the country started to fill the cinema to see Pretty Sweet.

Despite the fact that the team riders were fresh off the plane from the US premiere, the overall vibe was chilled and the Girl fam were certainly hyped on bringing this to London. The film played, the tricks flowed, the beers and cocktails spilled, and the spoilers will remain elsewhere for now whilst the film premiere’s across Europe.

One word that will spring to mind when you get to see this production for the first time is ‘fun’. The Girl and Chocolate teams and crew obviously had large portions of the good stuff filming this over a 5 year period. Look out for the DVD that will be hitting your local skate shop in the next week, or get ready to download it from i-Tunes on the 27th.

Thanks to all at Girl and Chocolate, Diana and all at the Hoxton Hotel for accommodating us on the night and the Never Mind The Art Dump exhibition that runs until December 7th. Thanks to Tiger Beer, all at Form Distribution, Ben Larthe, and everyone who returned home on the night without stealing from The Art Dump. Karma is certainly a beautiful beast. Enjoy.

Rob Smith’s LA photo blog

Death, Supra and Black Sheep pro Rob Smith is currently on the road and has traveled through Europe to get to the gold paved streets of Los Angeles. His second week in California sees Rob in Eric Dressen’s hands to get a Screamer, sessions at the Baker Boys warehouse, outdoor parks, art shows and much more.

This is part 2 of a series of photos. Start planning your own trip this summer and get out there and get some too.

Two of the most motivated guys on earth!

The only thing people use umbrellas for over here. Sun.

What a line up!

These photos below are from week 1.

Rob Smith sent us over a series of photos for a gallery blog feature with snaps from the first week in the sunshine. So far his sights have been shared with fellow Brits abroad, Fos and Nordberg at backyard pools, ditches, parks and street spots all over the Californian playground and also grabbed a seat at the Danny Way film premiere for good measure.
