Click Bait 2013: The Year in Review – Part 2.

Landscape X Joe Gavin X Krek – September 2013

What’s that? Another year, another pisstake Joe Gavin section? Obviously.

Joe Gavin, arguably one of the UK’s most prolific professional skateboarders ever, threw down yet another sterling display of Northwestern street battery back in September, this time around to commemorate the release of his latest Landscape board which saw the brand team up with well respected Mancunion graffiti artist Krek. As you’ve come to expect when Joe partners up with his long time documentation partner in crime Sean ‘Nano’ Lomax, this is a four and a half minute, straight to the point display of technical brilliance. No frills, no unnecessary camera work, no shots of the subject emotionally gazing at ledges or trundling past a dead pigeon in the sewer, just Joe royally fucking shit up in and around the streets of his beloved hometown.

14k+ pairs of eyeballs globally watched on in sheer jealousy as Ninja Fingers skates spots you want to have access to with the style and trick bag you wish you possessed. Though his approach to avoid colliding with the contents of an overflowing skip clearly weren’t to everybodys liking – I really liked the line where he switch ollied the sofa, then gave two manly pushes and switched popped the flat  bit of cardboard.Though for the one nitpicking complaint found in all of cyberspace, there were hundreds of responses along the lines ofdude kills it, and a lot of those spots were looking rooouuggghhh”, he skates like danny brady on steroids” and “hell yeah, that was tight. some of the best uk rap i’ve heard as well” which is obviously extended props to West Yorkshire’s native Alcoholic Author, the mighty Jehst, whose track ‘England’ was used on the edit.

Controversy? Apart from the cardboard switch ollie – nil.
