Rupert's coming up to London from Brighton today to do some filming for "Road to nowhere", Elliot's coming up from Kingston too. Should be hitting up the Archway banks if they're not slippery as hell! Elliot filmed some bangers at Canada water the other day too which should be featured in the video, but I'm keeping hush about them for now!

Also, don't forget that the next Gyppo Army Days demo in Castleford is TOMORROW! See you there!

Some stuff from Kevin

Here's an old sequence from the Interact skatepark in Burnley from about 2 to 3 years ago


On top of that Kevin recently went on a race to promote the new Skate 2 game which was a bit of a giggle along with Pete King and Darryl Dominguez. It was a race across Central London just to see which method of transport would be quickest between driving, skating, walking and catching the tube. Kevin was on the top and came 3rd which was a bit shit! It was all good though getting paid a bill and a half as well as getting a Fs Krooks on a ledge at Southbank too!

Here's some footage from the day, check it out, it's worth a squirt!

Clue #5

I'm really not sure what to put now.

He speaks french? There's one for you....

If you can't figure it out then just wait until tomorrow!


as normal, I recieved a text from Aaron with the usual sentence "Kev bell me", so that I did. It turns out he and Marcus were in the pub and they hatched a great idea up.

So, the great idea was that Marcus is now the new Gyppo Army TM. He'll be in charge of making sure your favourite riders/idiots are constantly filming and taking photos of tricks that you love to see them do! How good a job is that?

I, more than anyone else, wish him the best of success. He'll fucking need it!

I'm keen to see what devastation he'll end up causing and how this idea will backfire on me in a few months time, but, on the plus side, it'll probably end up as a good pub story a few years down the line!

Clue #4

Yep, it's a bit late. But I was skating, you can hardly blame me!

So, the clue is.... he has freckles. (I think...)

These are getting really bad.

Van City 3

Is rolling around soon, a bit later than last year thank fuck as it was nearly always cold and wet! We should have the weather this year, well, at least slightly better wetter! It is Ireland afterall!

This is always a good crack and would advise anyone who's got a bit of a chance to get over there to do it and go for a shread!

I'm not sure who exactly is going along from the team yet, but some of us will!

Clue #3

He's from Brighton.

from the terrible clues as to who the new rider is...

I'm pleased to announce that Gyppo Army will be available in Big Woody's skate shop in Blackpool!

For more information, check out and remember to always support your local skater owned shop!

Clue #2

He's ginger.

A new rider?

Yes and we'll be spilling the beans this weekend. Each day, we will be giving away a new clue as to who he is.

The first of daily clues is this little flyer!


Kev's still suffering from old man injuries to his shoulder. It's been 2 weeks now. During that time he's been working on the new website, sorting out the next set of graphics and getting Gyppo Army in even more shops!

Seeing as the "Shops" section of the website is currently down. I'll put up the new details up here!

Brighton's only S.O.S. "Another" skate shop owned by Stevie Thompson are one of the shops.

You can find them at 29 gloucester road, Brighton, BN1 4AQ. You can call Stevie on 07729931388.

Also, LCB in Chalk Farm are now stocking Gyppo Army. They're based at 23 Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8AG.

Kev's heading up to WOTR this year, Elliot's looking into it and our new rider from Brighton, who's still being kept a secret for the moment should be going up too!

was down in London a few months back and filmed a clip of him skating Bay66's mini ramp with Brooks. Brooks' camera has been playing up recently, which is why it took this clip so long to come out!

Anyway, enjoy!

War of the Roses 4

Is bound to be good, just like the 3 previous years which all went off! This year, we are sponsoring the competition as well as heading up there to get a session on! I'm not too sure which riders will be heading up, but there'll be more on it in a few weeks time!

When late nights kick in

I have yet to go to bed, as I've been up all night working. Regardless I thought it'd be the best possible time to post on the blog that our product is now available at LCB skateshop in Bethnal Green (East London).

To contact them you can call them on 02077393839 or you can visit for more info

The reason why I'm putting this up on the blog (and not the website) is that the website is being a right a pain in the arse to sort out and I can't add anything new to the site before it's fully revamped to cut a long story short!

On top of that, we have a new rider from the South of England. I'm currently getting together a clip of him for what some people call a "press release", which should be up all over the web next week at some point!

New shit

Well it's the new year, as I'm sure you all know.

Fuck knows what to type on this blog, at the moment I'm listening to Wu Tang Clan and N.W.A. and I just had some brocolli and cheese soup with toast which was surprisingly nice!

Kev and Aaron had a skate down Unit 1 yesterday. Coops drove us there in his ghetto as fuck car which we had to push down the road to get started and then jump into it as Coops got the engine into gear. We picked up local spig Pas and met up with Grot and a few others at the park. Aaron clicked his knee cap out of place and Kev slammed off of a ledge into the bowl landing on his shoulder and on his head.

Elliot was seen down Kingston skatepark the other day drinking cheap wine out of a plastic cup and doing nollie trés over the hip.

No sighting of Doug either.

Marcus ended up getting into a fight with a girl in the mill the other day, I'm not sure who started it but both sides gave as good as it got. If you see me in real life I'll go into a bit more detail, you're better off going to Aaron though. account login
