Long time friend of the blog and top scottish ripper Keith Allen got intouch to show me this video part he filmed over the pond by Ethan Craig. See you soon Keith!

Here's what had to say: "Cole and Keith are absolute shredders, they keep an open mind while they're skating. Brothers some people may call them "from international mothers". Never not having fun on the board, Ladies and mostly Gents, I present to you Keith Allan and Cole Nowicki, also featuring my main mane Andrew Classon." 

New Bones Video Teaser.

This steam is turning into a squad of rippers! Sick teaser for the new bones video...

Go look up his old Santa Cruz and Consolidated video parts on YOU TUBE and get an education in style on a vert ramp.

Will the real slim shady please back lip...

Fucking brutal heading but it needed to be done. Apologoies LADS! A freshly dyed hair Chris 'the fear' Weir has taken his time but is back for a 666. As usual the man has been smashing it up, all be it with a slightly more strawberry blonde hairdo. A proper good sesh through at North Berwick until my camera equipment started playing up.

So here's Weir smashing out a steezy back lip, plus a bonus photo of Shezz shredding with his bake face oan. hahaha.

Indoor beckons...

Looks like its gonna be a fucking stinking wet winter this year. Which means the inevitable migration tae the undercover shred option. Unit 23 decided to redo room 1 with a new layout. It's more orientated toward BMX but it's still shreddable.

To prove that here's Murray with a lesser seen BS shifty up the big flat bank to flat. Bada boom. See you demons indoors in the coming weeks.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 2nd November

Some shit just never gets old

It was a pretty epic feeling when Andy reminded me I've been sitting on these photos for over 2 years... literal gold dust from the lens of Alex Irvine, who passed them on to myself for the blog. A true gent!

Needless to say Andy is an insane skater and deserves much more coverage than he gets, thats why this  is a boot up the arse for SYB to shoot his 5's interview asap. Way over due mate!

Anyways here's a serious treat from Andy, courtesy of Alex Irvine. Famous Glasgow spot, beast of a FS Nosegrind 180 out. Motherfucking boom.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 26th October

Bouncy Rail that I've never seen hit

It's at one of the most rinsed out and hated spots in Glasgow, but I have no idea if anyone has skated this before at the Kingston bridge?! It's a tricky little thing to skate (ask the lad Hickey) - but with some skater ingenuity and a few asian dude's traffic cones we were sorted. When hitting it ye gotta try and compensate for the bounce back which looked a bastard... but eventually Murray smashed out a Nosegrind. It's worth hitting this if yer sesh gets washed out in Glasgow but prepare to get hassled by some wee asian dude.

Murray I - BS Nosegrind wae bounce oot @ Kingston Bridge

A mighty Bunker barge.

Being invited to closed doors sesh is something to get hella hyped about so when SYB got the nod it was fucking on! Skating a rad wee setup with some shredders, indoor on a soaking night and yer jamming. Add in some classic heavy tunes and a bar only metres from the ramps and SYB is in fucking skate heaven! Here's just a few of the things that went down. Menzies and Seth were on fucking fire like molten hot lava or something similar that is extremely flammable.

Thanks goes out to Seth and his mates for making this possible. Cheers dude.

Kieran - Super gnar transfer

McKenzie - Stage dive

Kieran - Wallride

Murray I - Ollie off the stage

Seth - blunt rag-in

Seth - Footplant the fence off the stage

Take it easy mate, slow doon...

Nah actually you want to go as fast as this dude. Fast as fuck street skating in a natural way... Gillette killing it in this well made video.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 12th October

Grabbing out the demonic dark deep end...

Can't really beat an unorganised late night shred, ending up at some random spots. Monday night had a little park, marble ledges, wallrides and late night cruising - it makes skate life in winter a bit morebearable.

Go do it.

The yeti strikes again @ kirky

Well.Mother edit

So here's the first bit of footage surfaced from Motherwell Skate park/plaza. Nice little edit from Alex Winch, with Tom Shimmin, Rory, Hickey (D.M.C represent), Murray (D.M.C represent) and a load more shredders from Glasgow.

As you can see it can be fun but the little kids are fucking wild. Beware!
