Shred Sled – Skating in the Snow

Spring might be on its way, but the weather hasn’t quite caught wind of that yet. Lets face it, even if it wasn’t grim out then this is still the UK and, accordingly, it seems only sensible to allow for the fact that a warm morning could develop to snow by the afternoon if things decided to turn. In case the white stuff does descend – and, if like me, you hate the fucking stuff – here’s some incentive to get out and have a fucking frolic! Some of the best examples of skating in the snow we could find, whether that be on wheels, a board alone, or something else…

Jimmy Boyes at Geoff’s ramp

Jimmy Boyes isn’t afraid to risk life and limb in pursuit of skateboarding kicks. Here he gets bored sheltering from the  snow and takes to Rowley’s freshly snow-covered miniramp.

Chris Atherton and Jesse James – A Golden Egg

Any excuse to post this is a welcome one! A Golden Egg is an experience every skateboarder should have with Chris Atherton and Jesse James showing a general disregard for the weather as well as fashion, spots and what their four wheels happen to be attached to at any given time. Before you start moaning about your local spots, peep the photo by Leo Sharp below and reappraise your attitude!

US East Coast winters aren’t a pretty sight, but Eric Swick keeps the fire lit with a piece of plywood making for a solid session!

Ambition Snow Skates

The bastard child of skateboarding and snowboarding has been lurking in the shadows for awhile and is pretty mental! That still doesn’t excuse the yo’d out tre flip late flip, but then not much would. Here is the more spur of the moment version via some old boards and plenty of wax.

Bam Margera

Say what you will about Bam, he could definitely ride a skateboard…whether that be on wheels or with skate attachments on ice.

Rick McCrank Snow Mission

Rick McCrank hitting up a kicker to kicker set up with the help of a snowmobile and a shitload of sheets of wood definitely brings the hype in this episode of Behind the French Fred Scenes.

What better way to close the post than with one of the undisputable classic Sidewalk covers, Shier crooking his way through the winter like a boss! Read the story behind it here.
