Devine Calloway

I forget this guy's on Chocolate, i still think of him as a new comer to the team even though he's probably been on for 5 years or so.

Can't wait to see his section in the new Chocolate vid, might have to wait a while, i can't see it coming out this year.

Back in the Day

Brett Margaritas hitting up the bowl and the back wall at Livingston. You didn't really hear much of this guy over here, i can't remember if he was affiliated with any U.S.A companies, if he was i can't remember. Dude ripped though.
This was the day after Chad Bartie broke his wrist, i think he was transfering from ressie to wee bowl, i wasn't there but it was supposed to be a bad slam.

FS air big bowl

50-50 stall back wall

It was safe to say that Chad Bartie didn't skate Livi after that. Sucks for me as it would've been cool to get a photo of him in his prime.

More photos to follow......

Welcome Skateboarding - Pichu

Sick as always!

Our Wullie


Edinburghs answer to Zac Efron Willy Allan, loves his nosegrabs. So much so that he made a video and dedicated it to me, what a sweetheart.

Thanks Willy, you're now my new favourite skater. Sorry Miles.

Sunday Sequence - Brett Margaritas

In 2000/2001 a bunch of Aussie guys were touring about Europe, Matt Mumford, Brett Margaritas, Chad Bartie, Dustin Dollin, Morgan Campbell, and few other stopped of at Livi, Edinburgh, and Glasgow for a skate. I managed to take some shitty photos from some of the action that went down. There was a proper article in Transworld at the time, so if you want to see the real photos, check that out. I'll warn you now, i didn't have a clue what i was doing (shit lense, no flash, crap film), i hadn't been shooting for long so the photos are pretty gash.

I'll start of with a Sunday Sequence.

Monthly Mags - Karl Watson

Karl Watson is rad, this little interview is taking from last months Transworld. It's short but a good read.


He was supposed to have a part in World Intustries Love Child but was left out of the final edit without being told, gutted. I was looking for his section (that was released for the first time a few months ago) and came across this. A ten minute edit from all the World guys from the same time. What ever happened to Jed?

Palace

Got an email from these guys this morning. Check out their little promo. Sick team so far, Lucien killed it in his Mag Minute, and i'm looking forward to seeing more of Charlie Young.

Palace Promo_ There is Nothing Else from bolderman on Vimeo.



This was one of the first clips i saw from Palace, it's a must see. Song is a banger too!

Overall Palace are sick, i like that they're underground and look a lot different that whats out right now. Hopefully they can get it together and bring out a proper edit soon. Get on it Lev!
