Sidewalk have started to release full sections from their ‘In Progress’ DVD this week. Ryan Gray’s project will all be online over the coming week or so. Look out for Ben Raemers, Harry Lintell, Conhuir Lynn, Nicky Howells, Tom Harrison, Mark Baines, Nick Remon, Ben Nordberg, Chris Jones, Denis Lynn and more soon.
The DC Embassy in Barcelona welcomed the UK team for a private session so click here to watch what went down with Conhuir Lynn, Sean Smith, Dylan Hughes, Jody Smith, Dave Snaddon and Nicky Howells.
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.

Motive Skateboards have been quiet of late which probably means they are busy behind the scenes planning their next phase of growth. They have released some old footage of Sean Smith today so get stuck into this and find their decks at www.motiveskateboards.co.uk
Last summer, a crew from the South West flew out to Barcelona, hired an apartment and documented the trip, the result being 11 sections featuring various skaters from all over Europe including Wainwright, Sean Smith, Josh Arnott, Aaron Clough, Yoni Bang and many more.
All of the parts filmed are graced with some decent laid back hip hop so enjoy this section from 5050’s Barcelona resident and also this friends section with Sean Smith, Harry Ogilvie, Rich Smith, Bill Smith, Pat Garrahy and Martin Carter and then click here to find more footage on their channel.
