Here's a visual treat for you all unearthed by some unnamed hero from the Sidewalk Forum. Neil Chesters' classic 1999 UK video for A4 Distribution (distributors of Sole Technologies) featuring the entire UK Sole Tech team of the time, plus a host of UK notables.

Hating Life is a true classic of its time - released just prior to Blueprint's Waiting for the World (2000) and featuring an eclectic line up covering every genre of skateboarding with Neil Chester's (at the time) super high production values. With full parts from Mark Baines, Mike Manzoori, Dave Allen, Scott Palmer, Pete Hellicar, Howard Cooke and Andy Scott to mention but a few - set aside 35 minutes and prepare for a glimpse into the recent past of UK skateboarding history.
