What Are Those Bloody Aussies Up To?

Dean Palmer is going to L.A. with good friend and Ozzy Zero rider Dane Burman to stay at Jamie Thomas' house for a while.

This photo was taken only a few seconds before Schooner rolled both ankles Saturday night jumping off a roof at 5 in the morning!!!! Don't try to be schooner at home kids.

Rhys Grogan has been shredding more then ever, especially at Waterloo skatepark, and his brother Robbie is getting married!

And the one and only Richie Jackson is still in the USA and is now fully hooked up with IPath! and rumored to be having a full part in the new Transworld Video!!!

Dan's Longboard Travels A Long Way

It was only meant to be a quick session with Dan and his longboard, but I got a bit carried away and the short edit (below) is now splattered all over the interblog.

It can now be seen on Mpora,
facebook, skatebook, jahlada website, skateperception, Slap forum, Sidewalk forum, and has even received a mention on good old Crossfire.

Time to put it on youtube now I guess.

Horsey's Last Trick In England (For A While)

Horsey has had enough of this weather and has buggered off to California for a couple of months to hook up with the guys at Teenage Runaway.

He couldn't resist one last backside smith on the way to the airport....

Harlow Skatepark

The building of the new skatepark in Harlow is well underway. I've seen it with my own eyes and it is amazing!! I'll try and get some pictures up soon but for now here's a shot of the plans painted on the side of the Motel6 skateshop wagon.

Speaking of Motel6, I don't know if you know this, but it's probably the best place to get cheap shoes. Check out their eBay shop here

Following their impressive stunts in the "Better Than Life" DVD, flow riders Steak, Benson, Adam Moss and Moggins are now on the amateur team list.

How Apt

Kingpin magazine have updated their website and it looks all brand spanking new, but in doing so they have messed up the Horsey interview link that we previously blogged.

They have however mentioned that the tie-dye freak is now riding for Teenage Runaway Urethane which is correct.

Rob Smith MCR Interview

Rob Smith's bottled face is probably healing up nicely by now and he has an online interview/podcast up on the Manchester based website.

"In this podcast episode Rob talks about breaking both his arms at the same time, why he continues skateboarding, the coverage he is most proud of, and how THRUST was formed."

......check it out, it's halfway down the skateMCR blog!!!

Also, Central Skatepark's "2 Skateshop" are soon to be releasing a team board of a grim Manchester street featuring amongst other things, Consolidated's Olly Tyreman pissing on a fellow shop rider and our very own Rob Smith dressed as a prostitute.

The Horsey Blog?

It's that bloody tie-dye loving freak again. This time with a load of unused footage that was filmed for the new "Better Than Life" DVD.

From The Horsey's Mouth

Horsey speaks too much. And people listen. And then they print what he says. I don't get it personally but if you want to read more words that were formed in his head then there's this old thing on the Mpora extreme sports website. Click the picture.

Good Perception

THE internet lurking site for all skater's into all things related to filming and editing has to be skateperception. On their video page they have different categories of videos such as promos, montages, trick tips, random footage, etc, etc. Each of these categories has a featured video and the current featured video in the "Event Coverage" category is the Death Skegness premiere clip that has been posted here previously.

So if you haven't seen it already, here's another shameless plug for the clip. Click it.

Rob's Poor Face

Rob Smith and the good lads at Central Skatepark in Manchester held their annual Xmas piss-up a couple of weeks ago. Amongst the drunkenness, Rob managed to get the nasty end of a broken bottle in the face. GET WELL SOON WOB WOB!!!!
......while we are on the subject of facial scarring, it's almost exactly a year ago when Schooner sustained a similar injury in Sydney, Australia, where he fell face first onto a pint glass at the end of a classic Oxford street night out.....
There's a lesson here kids. I'm not sure what it is exactly but I'm sure there is one.

More Sequences!

Horsey fills his time between partying and hardcore myspacing by flying over the new jump box recently installed at the Stansted park. Click it.

Ever Wondered What Happened To Wag?

Crazy experimental hair enthusiast and former Death am Wag has had enough of the stresses and strains of sponsored skateboarding and is happier now skating purely for fun. Wag is a Death lifer and solid member of the family. We have still 'Got his back' and we will make sure he has always got Death wood under his feet!

Click the image for flip nose revert sequence yo!!

Horsey's Photo Practise

.....So I bought a digital SLR recently because I like the sound they make when you shoot sequences. On a freezing cold day in December the new bowl in Hertford got to see Horsey quickly knock out a mid-run frontside blunt for my lens in between shooting photos with real photographers who actually know what they are doing!

Click it to see it happen!!!!

Hot Chicks Love Death?

Check the t-shirt on the rather fine lady on the left of this picture. Her name is Ann and she is one of the Fuel Girls. I can't imagine that you would want to click the picture for a closer look.
