Hooked Clothing - Acid Drop
Jacob Bettinson kicks proceedings off with a barrage of smooth, technical skateboarding across a wide array of spots - ranging from rugged Midlands DIY to Bristolian ledge staples to sun drenched Spanish concrete. This is followed by a section of light footed no complys, body varials and general steez from RWTB's sun avoidance general Fraser Doughty. A heavy friends montage backs things up and throws up plenty of Midlands rippers, including Heathen Skateboards' all terrain vehicle Nick Roberts.
Callum Moore lays down a selection of technically precise bangers, with Josh Price following on with a similarly tech approach, a deep bag of tricks and and a clearly light hearted approach to the four wheeled plank which has an air of Josh Cox about it. A second montage offers up another wave of Midlands destruction from all and sundry, which kicks off with a cameo from none other than Craig Smedley. David Ford flits between Midlands and Catalan staples for his penultimate section and handles both with ease, before curtain closing honours go to Phil Long - who handles everything from stair sets and handrails to DIY ledge set ups and crusty banks with ease, making for a well deserved ender!
All in all Hooked have come through with a properly put together scene production dripping in stoke on the scene which has produced it. Put aside 40 minutes of your life and raise a glass to them!
