George Smith in ‘Paul,’ by Welcome Skate Store

A couple of week’s back, Harrogate-turned-Leeds lens wielder, Josh Hallett premiered Welcome Skate Store’s first video ‘Paul,’ to a sold out audience at The Hyde Park Picture house.

Beers were cracked open, applause and fist bumps were given all around along with a great deal of laughter throughout the evening. Josh has crafted not just a great skateboarding video, but a funny one too.

As expected, all of the Welcome boys smash it but George Smith seemed to have those a little unfamiliar with the crew scratching their heads afterwards. Put simply, George a fucking powerhouse. No other words are needed to describe his actions on a skateboard so hit play, marvel at the pop then grab a copy of Paul, from Welcome’s website. Read Josh’s interview via Sidewalk Magazine whilst you’re at it too!

Habitat Skateboards X Twin Peaks

Habitat Skateboards Twin Peaks decks Speedway Skateboarding Magazine

The wonderful and weird world of David Lynch’s cult 1990s series has collided with the visual craftsmanship of Joe Castrucci and Habitat Skateboards.

Available at your local skate shop very soon, this collaboration is obviously in perfect timing with the return of Twin Peaks which will surely answer the lingering question of how Annie is alongside:

Why was Laura Palmer going to see Dale Cooper again in 25 years?

What’s Coop been up to in the Black Lodge while Bad Coop has been wreaking havoc on the world?

And finally, isn’t it too dreamy?

Habitat X Twin Peaks will be available at your local skate shop via Keen Distribution. so have a look at some the amazing graphics below before to get excited for the finest wood ride whilst drinking coffee as black as the night on a moonless night. Furthermore, with all this talk of David Lynch, we can’t help but think a Isle X Roy Orbison X ‘Blue Velvet’ mash up needs to happen…

Mike Hill for Supreme

Alien Workshop mastermind Mike Hill has teamed up with Supreme New York for a collaboration which invokes the timeless paper-mache aesthetic of Hill’s earliest graphics for the company.

Given the previous long running connection between the Workshop and Supreme, through mutual riders Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen, it’s surprising a collaboration like this hasn’t come sooner. Perhaps the now infamous hiatus the Workshop was forced to take in 2014 is the reason why this a collaboration with Hill himself, rather than the Sovereign Sect, but the appearance of Dill in the above video suggests the storm has blown over in the aftermath of the Workshop’s rebirth.

After turning Yaje Popson and Joey Guevara pro last month any reasons for doubting this incarnation of the The Sovereign Sect are rapidly disappearing. Hopefully this collaboration flies over the hypebeasts’ head so have a browse of the collection below and have your fingers at the ready on Thursday morning!

Mike Hill X Supreme New York releases 11am on Thursday 23rd March at Supreme London and www.supremenewyork.com

Since giving a fond farewell to the ‘Static’ series in 2014, Josh Stewart has been devoted to his esteemed distribution company, Theories of Atlantis. Operating out of his apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – the lack of a full length monkey (and camera bag) on his back has allowed Josh more time to focus on the Theories brand itself.

Ty Beall – ‘Gospel’ by Venue Skateboards

Perhaps Instagram-dwindled attention spans have been the great leveller when it comes to full length skateboarding videos. While the medium is an increasingly lost art the few productions that have boasted physical incarnations over the last few years have been some of the best.

Venue Skateboards’ Old Dominion has been on repeat since it came out in 2013 and with news that their latest video, ‘Gospel’, was inbound this year it warranted more frequent viewings than usual up until The Palomino Club stocked up a couple of weeks back.

As with Old Dominion, Gospel is kicked off by Ty Beall and in the years since Venue’s last outing Ty has gone from Chocolate flow to well deserved Scum Co & Sons pro. In honour of this, Will Rosenstock has uploaded his part from Gospel so get watching, grab a copy from The Palomino (which includes a great quality zine featuring the Bust Crew boys), revisit Old Dominion and read Ol’ Gil talk about growing up with Ty and more things Richmond courtesy of Sidewalk Magazine.

‘Atlantic Drift’ by Jacob Harris – Episode 2: St Paul’s

A second instalment of etherial brilliance in the ‘Atlantic Drift’ series by Jacob Harris showcasing the result of Jake, Tom Knox and Isle Skateboards cohorts clocking in god knows how many hours and kick-outs from London’s chalky hallowed ground that is St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Obknoxiously good lines with perfect filming and editing from start to finish – this one is sure to get you hyped to go skate your favourite concrete playground now that the weather is picking up.

Revisit the first instalment of Atlantic Drift by clicking here alongside our Isle ‘Vase’ interview series with Jacob Harris, Casper Brooker, Nick Jensen and Tom Knox.

Joey Guevara – ‘Pyramid of the Sun’

Joey Guevara has working on this one since our interview with him last summer and with Joey and Yaje Popson taking up the mantle of Alien Workshop’s new pros, this part has fittingly coincided with their debut.

Top notch trick, spot selection and solid style from Joey which has significantly matured since Bunker_Down. Miguel Valle’s cinematography is also an excellent match for this incarnation of The Sovereign Sect and a complete lack of too-close-for-comfort VX angles is certainly refreshing. We’re confident of Miguel’s ability as the Workshop’s lens wielder and can’t wait to see what a potential full length may yield… Nice to see him pop up on the other side of the camera too!
