Iron Giraffe presents a full length Scottish skateboarding scene video in the form of ‘Dalriada’, featuring an all terrain cast of some of the gnarliest bastards north of the border right now. Filmed predominantly in Glasgow and Edinburgh with detours via London, Barcelona and Paris, Paul McConnach‘s latest video release has been three years in the making and demonstrates just how gnarly the skate scene in Scotland is right now. This is the follow up to the similarly stoke-inducing previous full length from Iron Giraffe ‘Overcast‘, which you could do worse than checking out after ‘Dalriada’ finishes – especially if the outdoors looks as uninviting where you are as where we are.
Dalriada follows on from Iron Giraffe’s previous video in covering a solid portion of the Scottish scene – with the majority of footage going to Ross Zajac, Saul Crumlish, Kieran Menzies, Charles Myatt, Graham Anderson, Aaron Wilmot, Adam Paris, Ruari Britee-steer, Daniel Nicholas and Tom Shimmin, but with appearance from a wide cross section of familiar and less familiar faces. From the venerable confines of Livi and the crusty U that is Queens Park Vert Ramp to the many and varied street spots offered by Scotland’s two main cities and the other locations visited during filming for this one, ‘Dalriada’ should get you hyped to go out and skate immediately if the weather so allows!
Peep more of Paul’s pre-HD work via the first few episodes of our Scottish Skate Crates which he ably curated.
