Ride with us tour...

...was fucking sick! A load of skating got done and we ended up visiting a shit load of spots and parks all over Northern England and Scotland such as Prissick plaza, Seven Bridges in Newcastle, Perth, Livi, the Mitchell rails in Glasgow, Edinburgh and more. We camped in random fields all week and some people had a shower in Dumbarton's indoor park in the middle of the week.

A lot of funny crap went down, some stories included Porno sitting on a hill by the newly built Whitley Bay skatepark which was full of chavs blasting "tunes" through the megaphone such as Britney Spears and Boyzone. As well as making announcements such as "will the owner of the burberry hat please report to reception" and "will the owner of the chinese/tribal tattoo come to the hill please?" Eventually some local skinhead chav felt the need to show of his macho abilites claiming he could take on all ten of the skaters sitting on the hill and giving us general grief. Porno's quick responses ensured that this encounter was a funny one. Reading back on what I've just written, it's one of those, if you weren't there at the time, you'll never find it funny ones.

Hopefully the footage from the trip will give you an insight into what went on.

Aaron's over in Ireland for a bowl competition and Rapey Dave is filming in Brighton at the moment with Brooks.

Kev and Aaron should be heading to the Concrete Carnival in Penzance and Hayle this weekend which should be good, they're both broke so expect some ripping to happen!

New Visual Audio Goodness Children!

First off Ant is in New York for a week! Fucking hell! Don't know how he blagged that but he did!

...and hot and fresh out the kitchen, Ant and Ben hit up Swailcliffe skatepark before getting the train home back to Laaannndaaan the day after Rev's 10th birthday jam a week or two back (see footage somewhere soonish.) Loco's James Brown and Dave Edwards were also down for a skate so a rip of the street section followed.

Ride with us tour

Kev, Dave and Aaron are currently up in Dundee at the moment on this year's Ride with us tour. Loads of shit has been going down such as police raiding our camping spot and questioning us about weed as well as general skinheads being pricks at skateparks to Dave raising every store he comes across!

I'll write more on this when I get some spare time!

We are pleased to announce...

...that Cantelowes local Ben Cruickshank is the latest addition to the Gyppo Army flow team and has been filming hard with Brooks on regular missions along with Ant and Kev.

Dave has been skating hard down south in Brighton and will be going on this year's Nueu Ride With Us tour along with Kev and Aaron. He's got a first light in the works for Sidewalk magazine and he's now on the Etnies UK team! Stoked for him! He's also looking for a job, so if anybody down that way has something going feel free to give Dave a shout!

Doug and Elliot have been over filming in Kingston for our first video "Road To Knowhere" which should be out next summer.

Aaron's finished up The Big Push as Death's special guest and has got a few things up his sleeve, but we're keeping schtum for now!

No funny tales on today's post, does shouting abuse at strangers in Central London on a Wednesday night count? You'd probably think not....
