Rookies by Kill City Skateboards

rookies_dvd_kill_city_frontWhen most companies are struggling to push as much content as possible onto the web, it’s nice to see a company take their time to prepare a proper DVD with quality footage and a great soundtrack.

Kill City have chosen to start the year off with a bang by releasing their full length video Rookies featuring Dave Davies, Sam Pulley, Nicky Howells, Jess Young, Joe Lynskey, Jake Collins and Caradog Emanuel. Head honcho Lee Dainton took the role of filming and general hypeman duties for the team and has worked his magic over and above expectations. Watching Rookies gives you the feeling that Kill City is a tight team of friends based in England and Wales where sessions are more about fun than business, which backs up Dainton’s legacy of his team tenfold.

Rookies introduces us to the next generation of UK skateboard royalty and beyond. You would think the video was edited backwards when you witness Dave Davies’ amazing two-song opening section. Joe Lynsky and Nicky Howells take care of the ledge techniques and switch skating, whilst Sam Pulley and Jake Collins mix things up with all-terrain skills. Jake’s all round gnar just landed him on the Quiksilver team so expect his talents to be traveling even more than usual this year. Jess Young has grown up during the filming of his section. He has gone from a gnarly kid leaping consecutive big sets of stairs into a young man with no fear of grinding down rails with 15-foot drops off the side. If he doesn’t kill himself, Jess has a great future ahead of him. Finally, there is Caradog Emanuel for the finish and he closes the video off in style. You can understand why he gets last part when you witness the talent he has on board. Caradog is quick to dish out 360 shove-its switch manuals down a steep bank, long backside lipslides through fountain ledges or a picture perfect heelflip over a rail into a massive bank – skills that make him a name to look out for in the future.

Overall, Rookies is a solid video that you can watch from start to finish without skipping sections or wandering off to make a cup of tea. Great skateboarding all round. The soundtrack also gets thumbs up with music varying from Mobb Deep and Biggie Smalls to Sebadoh and the Butthole Surfers. Finally, the extra credits are probably the funniest 4 minutes I’ve seen in a long time, get a copy today.

This DVD is highly recommended and available right now in your local skate shop.

Sidewalk’s In Progress video premiere’s in London

London’s Prince Charles cinema was invaded by the creme of the UK’s skateboarders last night as the new Sidewalk video In Progress was premiered.

Popcorn and beers were thrown as standard, before three quarters of an hour of British skateboarding was unleashed with sections from Barney Page, Conhuir Lynn, Ben Raemers, Nicky Howells, Sean Smith, Harry Lintell and Tom Harrison alongside Ben Nordberg, Mark Baines, Nick Remon, Chris Jones, Denis Lynn and footage of many more.

Overall the film got a great reaction, the skating was banging, the music was spot on and the film mainly shot by Ben Powell, Ryan Gray and Kevin Parrott and many other contributors, could have just kept going and going. 45 minutes flew past with raw UK skating served just how we like it with Barney Page and Ben Raemers receiving the decibels they deserved. .

There will be some fantastic hangovers this morning as the free bar set up around the corner and funded by Nike would have sucked everyone in and destroyed most.

Well done to Sidewalk who have rolled out, amongst everything else they do for the scene, a video that captures some of the UK’s finest. The video will not be free on the cover of a magazine but will rightly be on sale in your local skate shop, so you treasure it and watch it with friends at home before you go for a skate. Pick up a copy in October in your local skater owned shop.

Footage from this summer’s Camp WESC online

When we were back at school and picked up American magazines to get skate news, we would always wonder why the UK never had any skate camps to offer and were always jealous that they existed elsewhere.

This summer, the first Camp WESC was launched down in Truro, Cornwall where Mark Baines, Tom Knox, Nicky Howells, Paul Regan, Danny Beall, Ash Hall, Benny Fairfax, Joleon Pressey, Danny Brady and Danielle Gallacher got together and hosted what looked like a great few days of skating for many. Watch 13 minutes of footage with all of the above and of course, all the skaters on the camp here.
