For a variety of reasons, we’ve had to hit the Sunday Service pause button again recently, but as the event calender slows down and winter gradually creeps in, safe to say our weekly UK centric archival rummaging should be making a weekly return.
Kicking things back off we’ve got Ben Grove’s opening section from the first Neil Chester and Ben Powell produced Sidewalk VHS offering ‘In Motion’. Up to this point, most people were blissfully unaware of the level of skateboarding that a young Champagne Supergrover was producing, but by the time this three and a half minute section had come to a close, no one could deny that Grove was taking raw, full throttle UK skateboarding to the next level.
For the benefit of Austin Bristow who I was talking to about this section the other night – the Sheffield ollie is the last trick. Still mental, even by todays standards.
