Nike SB, Bay Sixty6 preview

Here at SBW HQ we always get invited to the hottest events, this time was no different. Nike SB had just revamped the Bay sixty6 in London and we had some tickets to the preview skate, the day before the big demo. We quickly booked our mega train tickets and we're off. (No expense spared)
Nathan got the brief and we both wore the same teeshirts like a pair of flamers.
 The day wasn't starting well
 We arrived at the Skatepark and we're greeted by some burley bouncers, it seemed Nike SB were planning on trouble. After being told to get in queue we were quickly ushered in.
 I was greeted by the Flying Hobo (Tim Bartelot) he's an ex-Sheffield head who's now in Bristol, haven't seen him in years, today was going to be good.
 Obligatory photo of Michael Barrymore (more of him later) and Morphman.

 Bumped into Jon Horner, I've never met him before so it's nice to put a face to the <username> and Carl from Palour Skatestore (but more importantly Darlington).
 Neil Smith was there as normal, he's everywhere this guy.
 Me new mates Justin and Wieger, free beers = happy men.
I knew Shaun would love this so I got Theotis B to hold it up.

Nathan has more photos so he can do a part two with some of the night-time shots when we were lucky enough to rinse the Nike tab at the hotel. Glad you weren't looking for pictures of the park.

Here are a couple of recent photos, proving that we have been skating not just sitting around getting lardy.

All for Ron and Ron for all.

It's Go Skateboarding Day - Woohoo - and it's raining here in Sheffield.

I thought I'd write a blogpost about something random which I suppose is Skateboarding related but not really.

Whats in a name?

masc. proper name, from O.N. Rögnvaldr "Having the Gods' Power," from rögn "gods," lit. "decreeing powers" (pl. of regin "decree") + valdr "ruler."
Ronald is a masculine name predominantly found in Scotland where it has always been popular, however in Scotland it usually takes the form Ranald. The name is of Norse origin and was bought over by raiding Vikings. The form Ranald has not really spread from its Scottish roots, however Ronald is widespread, and is common in America where is was the name of the 40th president, Ronald Reagan, and where it is also the name of the mascot of the McDonalds franchise, Ronald McDonald.

As I was growing up I always seemed to notice Skateboarders with the same name as me and always wondered if anyone else did the same? Probably not, anyway I thought it would be fun to post up some sections of people called Ron, Ronnie, Ronny, Ronald... you might dig them.

Ronnie Bertino - XYZ section

Ron Allen -  Risk It section

Ron Whaley - Uprising section

Ronnie Creager - This isn't a section but has some Rad stuff

Ron Chatman - Rubbish Heap

Ron Knigge - Da deal is dead


Ron Deily - State of mind

Bit late on this news but Justin's Legacy design has been attached to raglan shirts by the screen printing process.

Get a hesh raglan with a dope rapper graphic from Legacy's shop now (unless they've all sold out).

I'm Nathan Pemiere

If you're down London way tonight you should go and see this film. Nathan is funny a fuck so it will probably be good and I doubt there is anything else going on in London anyway.

Go to the Facebook event for details of times, places etc.

Official trailer and House skatepark clip.

You can also have a photo of Nathan that I forgot to put in the Almost a Skate Cafe post.

Almost a Skate Cafe

On Saturday night Ash opened up the shop again for us all to go and watch the new Almost video and the Skateboard Cafe promo.

The night started with a quick Dev session as standard.


Ghostman turned up

We photoshopped in what we think the Ghostman looks like.


Healthy party snacks are important to Will.


Discovering stella



Hirst was dishing out healthy measures of Rum.


Ghostman turned up for a hangover skate and went and bought a pint of mild because he was thirsty.

Another good night was had and ridiculous hangover suffered. Cheers Simple.

The Almost video was okay, (Daewon was nuts obviously) but it was all about Skateboard Cafe's sick promo. Check it out below and then go and buy some of their stuff from Legacy or Simple

Matt Hirst Presents - Peruse (2003)

Matt Hirst has uploaded his Sheffield scene video from 2003 on to the world wide internet. There are a couple of tricks from Ronny and Nick in there somewhere. Have a nice cup of tea or a tall glass of milk click play and enjoy.

Simpletons and other happenings on Saturday.

Over the last month or so Gav has been collecting used broads from the Sheffield skate scene and using them as canvases to paint our ugly mugs on. On Saturday night Simple hosted the exhibition (kindly supplying free beer speciales as well).

I didn't take any photos but Tom Sykes did.

Untitled chung danger ronny tubb will
The man who made it all happen. Nice one Gav, props for being a motivated human and doing something creative and positive.
More of Tom's photos from the night here.

After Simpletons Will, Arthur, Nick and Ronny went off to eat steak, drink beer and be real men...

...I went rollerskating.

In my semi-defense it was to a night called Rolled School and I did drink beer, but yeah I did go rollerskating. I also saw;


And Errors who were really fucking good.

Also my new favorite football team - Sheffield Wednesday - got promoted to the Championship. UTO I believe is the saying.
