The Sunday Squeaky Weekly

Evenin' folks, been a very very long time since I've been arsed to write on here, which has probably stoked some people out because i'm usually just full of crap, but tonight something inspired me to contribute, maybe its the boredom of being bed bound on a wet sunday with a gin-over...

The only thing that has happened to me which comes under the 'skateboarding' and 'exciting' tags at the same time, was Leddy's American Wasteland tour. This was a 16 day mission originating in San Francisco and involved driving up to Portland and Hood River, before heading back down to SF for out flight home. It really was the most fun I've ever had in my life, heres a list of keywords which will probably give you an idea of how it was, and save me the bother of writing a shit loads. I'll man up and get some photos posted sometime in the future.

12 ft cradles
Safeway deli counter chicken
Childs tents
Accent rimming
Pain killers
LINCOLN FUCKING CITY (and the lincoln city bar crew)
Hench birds
Irish car bombs
SF hill bombing
Broads fleas
Constipation + the shits
Swimming in lakes
Free chron
Haight Ashbury
Wrong way down one way streets
ID checks
Phoney Tony

I could go on forever, but wont.

great times, roll on 2011

I'm shit.

Proper shit at keeping this thing updated. Winter is fully upon us, filming missions certainly winding down fore the inevitable hibernation, and struggle to get a good skate in.

Pool roof is now fixed so hopefully building may start, possibly, maybe.

The circle of life might do it for us. Maybs...

In regional UK news....

Staines is trying to change its name to Staines-on-Thames to shake off shit from Ali-G.

Anyway, eher is an edit I promised about 3 years ago. Rad trip to cornwall. Some flicks to go with will follow shortly.

Camping in Devon

A couple of weekends ago, myself, Wybes, Trench, Neil, Sproul, Phil Mitchell (Leddy), Machin, Luke Mac, Alex, Jase, Craig and Sam missioned it to Devon for a camping trip. Check the edit below for some of the footage logged.

Devon, weekend away. from James Needham on Vimeo.

Mad love to Neil and Trench for helping film, and bar a few bits of missed footage due to glitching etc, everyone smashed it. We have something similar planned for this bank holiday so check back soon for more manz dancing like white girls.

We hit up, Glastonbury on a very wet Saturday, then Newton Abbot, Barnstaple, and finally Taunton on Sunday.

Sproul and his lads mag.


Wet Glasto.

Big Drinker

Mexican shower

Few more snaps on Facebook, oh and come to think of it I managed to forget to edit in Jase's tuck knee over the hip at Newton Abbot out, as well as Leddy's bs 180 over the channel gap that got rinsed at Barnstaple.
Apologies, I'm sure the raw versions will make there way up here at some point. I was just in a rush with this as I have to organise much of my brother's life and get people on a hype ting for this weekend.

Jason Cloete - Tuck Knee, Newton Abbot

Mad other blog updates soon, Grove Jam round up (hopefully someone else will do that for me, hint), and a quick Abbers / Cutterz edit, plus there is the possibility of moving to a wordpress / full site at some point in the near future, as well as other big tings that may well be a-gwan.

Writers Tail Block

Jason has got a small interview up on the latest website full of UK skateboarding drivel, WRITERS TAIL BLOCK.

CLICK HERE to read it. Pretty funny.

Expect an Abingdon / Cutterz park edit, and an edit from this weekends camping trip to Devon featuring mad mandem up soon(ish).

Park edits.

Hopefully you may have noticed a considerable increase in video content in the last couple of weeks. Street missions then park missions, so that whilst all street footage (at the moment) is being saved for the still untitled video, we can post up park edits to satisfy about 2 peoples needs for footage.

Anyway I'm bored of trawling through spotify etc to find good tunes then 'wasting' them on park edits, so I've decided to leave it to Reggie Yates' Radio 1 top 40 do it for me. I trusted that dude when he did that morning show with Fearne Cotton on BBC, with that little puppet...Nev was it, but yer, my faith is in you Reggie. Club Smashes all the way.

Short Cutterzslowe / Abingdon clip should be up tonight, and some kind of mega edit from this weekends little camping trip to the West Country.

Over and out.

Jason Cloete 10 Tricks at Grove

After a pretty unproductive Saturday getting rained out in Oxford, we turned up at Grove hoping to film 10 tricks with Jason. 20 minutes of heavy rain later and we had this lot in the bag.

This kinda hurt.

Paget's back...

...from Baguette land (France) at the weekend, should be linking to continue filming, if he can land something.

Found this from the other weekend. Paget was free to skate as his 18th Century yacht is in for a hull repair, it left him to chat shit and do a crappy 5-0 instead. Noish.

Remember Sweden trip 2 out of 3?

Its been a fucking long time since I've got involved anything blog related, so I thought i'd contribute slightly just by seeing what I've got lurking on the hard drive.

Remember when we went to Gothenburg?

Here are a couple of snaps, don't even think we took any of skating. But remember the boats, poos on cars, the girl footballers, the nutter outside 7/11, clubbing on a boat, Jacks fresh garms, locking Neddy in a street toilet?

Just a little reminder of that awesome weekend.

Lets go back to Sweden. ja donna, va du seger?

Peace and love

Didcot Clip.

Little cruise at Didcot and Abingdon today. Trying to keep the blog updated with some footage on the regs, at least give the 3 people who might read this something to watch rather than reading a load of utter shite for a change.

Most importantly Redge has gained some much needed publicity. Unfortunately Alex has claimed to have killed redge...

"Redge needs the support, anyone out there who wants to support redge come and chain themselves to redge with me on the day, IT WILL PROVAIL!!!" - Christopher J. Machin

Anyway, here you go. Enjoy.

If anyone could give me an exact journey time to Bristol from OX14 1XW, Alex would much appreciate it, thanks.

Vert club part 1

Some of the Newbury lot had the sudden urge to go skate some vert, just because. One big board shopping trip to SS20 later and we had a little session last night at Caterham. So fun!

Tuesday, 27 July 2010

Quick Crawley Clip.

Myself, Sproul, The Gimp and Zac popped down to Crawley park this evening to link with SS20 team rider, Matt 'Potter' Hill. Its a shame, Potter used to get up to Oxford a lot more in the past, but you know how shit goes. Either way, manz got transport again now so hopefully see him popping up a bit more frequently in the future.

Zac was on filming duties as well and I'm sure got more footage than I did, so I thought I'd edit my shit together real quick and then hope for a drunken Zac edit in the near future. Trust, they be boss. Looks as though Zac will be picking up a TRV950e soon, so hyped to see what he'll churn out with that. Gimme more of the raw.

Anyway, my crap. Enjoy.

Here's a Potter pic as well to go with, Backside Flip from ledge over the stairs, Czech Republic '09. Photo Smay. Pinched from The Drawing Boards website. CLICK HERE to check it out if you have a spare few minutes.

More of Potter in the previous issue of Sidewalk, 165.


On some mad Penny tip at the mo. Go through these swings once every few months. How can one person look that good skating everything.

Charity Phil Sproul mission.

Charity Phil Sproul mission went down last night. He even made a line, and was snapping his board on tricks he was kinda meant to be trying!

Mad cameras.

After a hiatus of substantial updates, all should change. Getting my arse in gear. Ristecpa.

Story: Clyde Singleton

So last night, i was watching that embarrassing ass Rob Dyrdek show, and.. actually.. why did i even mention that? imma keep it trilla, and go on record to say that shows asscheeks. no hate. just being reality.. the reason i can say this openly, is because Rob & I go back like some spinal cords.. which brings me to todays, and what happens to be my first post on the Kr3w site.. See, id spend alot of time between Dyrdeks & Kareem Campbells house. but there was this one trip i’d went down there, with who i still see as not only the best skateboarder. but possibly, the most gifted athlete in the world- Tom Penny.

I’d first met Tom at a contest in Northhampton. i remember being ready to puke before my run and dude walks up and goes, “dude.. how do you do a fakie hardflip..”. First i was like, “dayum!! whas wrong wif’ this n!kka teef’?!!?” Then, we got to shooting the breeze, and he passed his J off and wished me luck. Years later, when he touched down in the states, was when we really started chilling. Day in and out, you could find me, Muska, Angel,Ronnie Creager, and Tom skating or hanging out at either Ronnie, or Angels’ crib.

But there was this one trip, when i think(we smoked ALOT of weed, so excuse my exacts) Tom & I had taken a train down to SD to hang with Dyrdek and the boys. Both Tom and I had no clothes, bag of weed, and about $100 in our pockets. The plan was to go down, get some flicks, and head back in a day, or two. Tom, being the “genius” he was, “remembered” when we arrived- all he had was some Timb’s on. Perfect.
Never the one to miss out a session, Tom joined Elissa Steamer, Dyrdek, Kelly Bird, Tom Drake and my self at the now inf amous ledge Eissa so eloquently body-checked in her debut Toy Machine part.. Tom skates up(joint in hand, Timb’s on his feet..), and starts toying switch crooking that sketchy beast from the flat, and landing about 3 stairs in.. we all had the, “i KNOW this dude aint about to..” look. he keeps toying with it.. and looks at some random kid skating and goes, “hey.. can i borrow your shoes..” i forgot who was shooting, but ive NEVER in my life seen a camera man set-up so quickly.. nevertheless..
Tom puts dudes shoes on his feet, skates back. does a couple flatground tricks. brushes what he deemed a “haircut” out his face, and i swear on everything- this dude switch crooked that sketchy ass ledge, first try.. i, nor anyone with me, had EVER seen something like that in our life.. i dont even think the dude “tried”. he just did it.. rode up. someone elses shoes. sketchiest ledge on the planet, and just did it.. to see it in the Etnies ad, was one thing. but to BE THERE, and SEE it? cmon.. as i said.. this is one of the MANY of stories i could build on about the dude, but that day in itself will always stand out in my memory.. dude was the BEST. and there will never be another. i can proudly say i was a friend of the dudes and watched alot of things people speak about- actually, go down.. so Tom. this post is for you.. fukk a Dj Khaled. you “da Bast!” and Rob.. you gotta do something bout that show, dog.

Eat That Shrimp!

5th Annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition

Must be one of the best contest I've seen in a while. You guys know what we have to organise next: The first Annual Iffley MiniRamp Skate Dog Competition!

So, which one do you think looks like Neddy the most? I think the brown one with a green surfboard is quite close. Or maybe the tiny one with a big board bombing down some wave at the top... Not sure. Let's have a little competition here. You guys can vote and we will pick a winner at random. The winner gets a free skate lesson with Neddy, the ending trick in his forecoming skate video, or can be the judge in our dog miniramp contest. So come on guys, every vote counts, let us know what you think!

Late ramp jam post

I know it's a bit late... took me a while to get the films developed.

PS: Too tired to abuse Neddy right now... But don't worry, I'll try to come up something good to make up for it in the next one.
