Recent photo's

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?

Ronald
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



Bye

Ragland

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.

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
