Scotland's late summer

I have been visiting Scotland for coming up on twenty years. Sure, it is one of those destinations that might lie under the radar for an internationally curious type, but I assure you it is well worth more than a mere gander.

Siar - The West coast of Ireland

Our trip was mostly the brain child of our friend Cian Eades from Limerick based on whispers that he’d heard through the Irish skate scene that the mostly unexplored West of Ireland had quite the abundance of skate spots and even more alluring due to the fact that most of them where relatively untouched.

Debuts - Matt Pritchard

Sidewalk 223 - Rollersnakes South

Off we went to spend six days trying our best to follow Bambi and rattling hire van around the south coast in search of seven-ply heroics and good laughs. Here’s a selection of what went down…

Sidewalk 223 - Korahn Gayle

I've known the extraordinary human being that is Korahn Gayle for maybe coming up for 13 years.

This past weekend, Vans, (in collaboration with Black Sheep Skate Store), brought a pop up House of Vans to Manchester. Doors opened on the Deansgate venue with a gig on Friday, with Saturday’s main event hosting a variety of obstacles including a mini ramp and small street area.

Sidewalk 223 - James Jarvis

Drop into some negative space, geek out and listen to Jarvis speak about hoping his name was written down by the Gonz, making toys and barely-popped ollies.

Bristol Lloyds Big 3 comp

We have been doing the big 3 jam at the infamous Lloyds set here in Bristol for a few years now and the turn out and level of skateboarding has always been amazing

Sidewalk 223 - Tommy Guerrero
