Thrasher cover babe Ben Raemers came home for Xmas and hit the Zombieland Skatepark in Essex for Volcom. Have a few lines from the session here and a little cheeky cameo from Neil Smith.
Some tricks are hard enough without having a magazine to read at the same time. Ben Raemers like to catch up on what’s going on out there mid session…
Essex pin up Ben Raemers teaches you to boneless in this latest clip from the Ride Channel.
Some people in this world are never content with just skating the curbs outside their house. Omar Salazar, Ben Raemers, Louie Barletta, Peter Raffin, Ryan Reyes and friends tear the fiberglass out this very shreddable marine vessel for Go Skateboarding Day!
Check out the ridiculous tricks from Raemers though. He sails it.
Watch footage of Jon Nguyen, Mark Suciu, Jonathan Perez, Preston Harper, Barney Page, Daryl Angel, Ben Raemers and many more in this San Homies montage from Justin Albert.
A new edit featuring Ben Raemers skating London’s concrete parks has landed. Check out this footage of him shredding Harrow, Rom, Tottenham, South Bank and a monster cradle gap air at Victoria Park.
You can also find that featured on the cover of this month’s Kingpin Mag, their 100th issue. Well done to all who have sailed the ship over there supporting Europe’s skate scene.
British slayers Ben Raemers and Div Adam feature alongside Roberto Aleman, Brandon Westgate, Tony Miorana and others skating bowls, parks, street and more in this recent P-Stone edit from Thrasher.
Surrounded by blue skies and a winter chill, the Crossfire Xmas Jam warmed a few hundred people at Bay 66 Skatepark yesterday. The rain held, the skateboarding poured and only four people managed to spill blood on the day. Thankfully there were no broken bones to talk about.
Manny Lopez came off worse by running into Tim Prozorov and suffered a collision injury that forced the ambulance service to drive him to the nearest hospital for stitches. Adrenaline was needed to slow down the bleeding so it could be stitched up so he will be feeling sore this morning. Get well soon Manny, we all missed watching you skate.
Some big stuff went down in this session. Notable mentions to Chroliver, Nowik, Cullen, Raemers, Zwijsen, Collins and many more for all day shredding and of course, the legendary Mark Brewster’s vocal skills on the mic all day. Churchill has got nothing on this cat. Look out for a video edit and a photo gallery very soon and thanks to all who got off their backsides to get amongst it with us on the day.
A rowdy crowd filled the after party who roared along to the premiere of the Kill City Skateboards Rookies DVD. It was the first time some of the team riders had seen the film due to a trip to Barcelona last week and it did not disappoint. Beers were raised, the film dropped its hammers and there should be some tasty hangovers out there today.
Big thanks to all who drove for miles to share these good times and make these events work plus all of the staff at Bay 66 Skatepark, and our associate sponsors Slam City Skates Plan B, Flip and Superdead Skateboards
More big shouts out to Heroin, Death, Drawing Boards, Science, Crayon, Kill City, Lovenskate and Blueprint Skateboards, Andy Evans and Sam May for being involved in a another great day of skateboarding.
This jam was for Bingo on his Birthday. RIP.

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.
