People see me, and they see the suit, and they go: you're not fooling anyone, they know I'm rock and roll through and through... @stevecaballero THIRTY TWO years ago slide ‘n’ rolling the shit out of the now defunct @longlivesouthbank bank to wall. Footage from the @powellperalta 1988 tour that me and some friends were at (we went to the Southsea leg, not this London session) which was one of the events that shaped our lives forever. Clip taken from @donbrider’s YouTube channel. Related side note: The Donz taught me boardslides at Southsea Skatepark the following year - then I stole and treasured his used @independenttrucks coper
Well, you don’t see this everyday - @ryanconnnors backside 180 to fakie manual, caballerial kickflip out. Very well done, mate. - That reminds me, remember when all you fucking idiots thought Austyn Gillette’s halfcab flip was a fakie flip??! That still boggles my little mind. Have a great day xox
I can’t work our what I like more; That frontside flip, those flowing locks, that clean outfit, the handsome face, the historic setting or the camera work. All in all a textbook clip @rio.batan 🎥 @zandergabriel
Backside nollie to switch frontside nosegrind variations by @chrisfranzen at Venice Beach, California in the United States of America. Video version with the 180 out is from LA County that was released 2 decades ago in the year 2000. The sequence that is without the 180 exit strategy is from @bigbrotherskateboardmag in 1996. The photographs were taken by @meechface and kindly stitched together by @v_i_n_t_a_g_e_s_k_a_t_e - Please note, the tedious caption above in the written in same vein as Andy Kaufman’s deliberately painful performance where he read the entire Great Gatsby aloud instead of repeatedly being forced to say ‘thank you very much’ in the voice of Latka.
@fgustavoo swicky swuski
Straight up Menace. @javi__javs switch flip 👊 🎥 @rbumali
@enwhytj with some serious hip pop. - Let it be known, I’m already regretting that pathetic attempt at wordplay before I’ve even hit the share button. Most sane people, would, with all the time wasted writing this shite, have pondered how weak it is and deleted it in favour of a better caption. I’m not most people though.
JumpRamp and Ladder - 1988 “You have to pay first”
A couple of weeks ago I politely asked @yutohorigome for some more transition footage. He was kind enough to come back with this healthy stalefish for @nikesb. Thank you. Any more vert/bowl/quarter footage from you, sir, would be very much appreciated. Kind regards, Leighton.
In the early ‘90s my brother went to Meanwhile II and got mugged. The mugger famously said ‘gith me ya dollaths’ which is interesting, as we don’t use dollars in England, and funny because he sounded ridiculous saying it in a fake American accent with a put on lisp. Regardless, he ended up walking away with £10, so I guess he won the interaction in the smallest way possible. A couple of years later @keithhufnagel went to the same spot and walked away with a sick 360flip and presumably all the money he arrived with. It’s also his birthday today, so he’s got two reasons to celebrate.
Sometimes if I’m bored whilst taking a poo (this is very rare as I find excreting faeces to be riveting) I find myself having a look through the comments on here. It’s always lovely to read the amazing feedback we get from strangers. Beautiful compliments like ‘just post the fucking trick, stop writing bullshit’ and ‘ur capshunz r teribal’ really do make doing this all worthwhile. So yeah, I just wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone for your kind words. Oh and here’s @johndilo doing a switch heelflip over a handrailing.
As a rule I usually find nollie inward heels quite offensive to the eye, but when done correctly they can, on rare occasions look pretty cool. Especially when boosted out of a nose wheelie like this beauty. Happy birthday @justineldridge Which reminds me - new Curb Your Enthusiasm is out and is pretty preeeetty good.

Mesmerising. @jahbulbatron halfcab nozza reev.
No adjustment. @enriquelorenzoo 1997
Doped Out Children. 1995 @kareemcampbell 📸 @rickkosick
The skateboard rotates mid air on both the x and y axis. The skateboarder rotates fewer degrees on the x, while not even attempting to utilise the y axis whatsoever with his body. Lazy
I don’t have a single negative thing to say about this clip. @prod switch heelflip and switch kickflip backside tailslide shove-it aka SSKFBSTSSI 🎥 @ericiwakura
That shit looked a little lazy to me...
We’ve been bumming Snape pretty hard lately, but yeah another post won’t hurt. @weaotea - Dutch girls should not be punished for starting lines with a fakie flip.... If anything they should be rewarded.
