Gerry and Cheesestring (Return of the G-String) – Pisstakes and Outtakes

An extended edit from Belfast master lensman Craig Dodds

Following on from our recent ‘Guilty by Association‘ spotlight on the two, Craig Dodds has put together a solid postscript in the form of ‘Gerry and Cheesestring – pisstakes and outtakes’. The streets of Belfast are not known to be the most forgiving terrain to film skateboarding on and, coupled with a general public whose reactions seem to range from bemused to heavily irritated, putting together the clip to accompany the interview was clearly no easy task. With a victorious shared part snatched from the jaws of rugged spots, cheesegrater landings, meddling pedestrians and irate security guards, it seemed only right to share with the world the work that went into Gerry and Cheesestring’s ‘Return of the G-String’.

Not actually knowing the two, it seems like the best way to introduce this clip is in the same way we introduced the interview – with some words from Craig Dodds;

A duo to rival Beavis and Butthead, Bill and Ted, Cheech and Chong…maybe even Jay and Silent Bob? This, my friend, is the age of Gerry and Cheesestring.

From their humble beginnings in Belfast, over the last five years they have risen through the never-ending ranks of slagging to become two of our city’s most beloved characters, even if you do end up waiting two weeks on them to pay their strap back.

“Battling through stress and the general public’s hostility, breaking point for all of us was standing far too close to the edge on some occasions. Here are the trials and tribulations of Gerard and Kurtis’s skateboarding in the beautiful but always unforgivable Belfast.”

Witness more from these two via the various Bridges Skatepark edits put together by Craig Dodds since the park was built.
