Myself, Rattray, Stu, Bense & Cubic took a wee trip up North to go and see what the then new concrete had to offer. By the time we got to Elgin it was getting dark and the park had cleared out. Benson dropped this wee beauty nae bother and we all went for a chip supper and then a sick darts & beer session in ESP Mike’s shed. Mike’s bird’s a copper, which amused Benson no end

Now here's some mental sequences Alex was generous enough to spew fourth....

Benson - buckie 1
(Alex) Boneless super mosh, Buckie.
Same weekend, in fact I think it was the same day as the switch front blunt, we hit up the then new park in Buckie. We had to squeegee the fuck out of this place, I say we, Bense and Stu did absolutely fuck all except smoke fags and watch Me, John and Cube do it all..Livi livin’. Have it mosher.

Benson livi 1
(Alex) Nosebluntslide revert, Duh.
Tait bit my shit on this occasion, Death or someone ran a still of a stall revert on the Andover, whereby skate etiquette dictates this wasn’t used and never saw the light of day..So it’s sat around my computer for a few years gathering iDust before making it’s appearance here. It’s a bangin trick a shit tonne harder than the stall and so not seeing it run sucked, shit happens like that sometimes though. Fuck it.

Benson Buckie 2
Transfer BS tailslide @ Buckie. Yet another a la piss-take banger from up north.

Benson USA 1
Up to lippy @ America. "You can take the cheeky bastard out of Livi but you can't take the Livi out the cheeky little git." - Benson killing foreign soil.

Benson USA 2
Corner pocket lien to tail. Yet more proof Benson can kill any concrete transition ye fire in front of him.

Benson Elgin 1
Possible NBD for the SYB blog??! Comment if you've seen one of these published before... Transfer up to cannonball BS disaster reeeves - I think, fuck knows?!

Benson Livi 2
Last but not least a Livi ender!!!! 270 Heelfip indy oot the livi line.

For mare info on Benson and Death skateboards cheeck out their website by clicking here > either that or go give him abuse on facebook. Or go visit it him at at his new job (sitting on a chair) at new indoor 'Garage Skatepark' in Livi. Either way give him some abuse!

SYB Friday 666 - 15th Oct

Tom shimmin - SYB Glasgow night mission 1. A wee while back we went on a night mission to some pretty insane spots hidden about Glasgow. Stupidly to warm up I thought it would be good idea to hit the banks at John Wheatley College, first go I fucked my foot. Tom on the other hand ollie over the hip that is unbelieveably hard to skate, looks good in photos but its just plain mental. lucky Shimmin is robot and we got some good footage that night.

Div - shralping some american crete

Good to see the ginger bearded scottish shralper killing it (and himself) at some random parks in america.

The Coven's Second coming

SYB loves all things demonic and especially likes a good hell sesh. So we suggest you have a view at this latest Witchcraft Skateboards clip. It's demonic, there's a hell sesh and there's fucking D.I.Y ramps in there!!! Get inspired and start building shit!

SYB Friday 666 - 8th Oct

Another Livi Beast - Stu Graham
This Fridays 666 goes to another Livi local who managed to break out and shralp the shit out America, earning himself a pro board in the process. It just goes to show if you can shred Livi you can skate just about anything. If you haven't been in a while I suggest you head thru for a hell sesh. And in other news it seems Benson and Ben Leyden are involved in a new indoor park in Livi called "The Garage skatepark" that looks to open late november, from what i've seen so far it looks fooking sick and well designed. More on that soon.

SYB stickers

The gid news keeps on coming - We got our 1st batch of SYB stickers in. If you want some there are 2 options:
1. Wait til ye see me shralping somewhere and ask me for some or
2. Email me (SYB email on blog) and you will be emailed an address, where you can post a envelope with self addressed envelope with a stamp on it to. Then i'll fire it the self addressed envelope back with some stickers inside.

10,000 SYB slayers deep and counting

10,000 hits - Fucking hell!

It's been a good few days for SYB and the blog. Over a pretty short period of time SYB (along with all the other gid scottish blogs - ye know who you are) has hopefully helped to spread the good word about the Scottish Skateboard scene and how it is ripping right now. Anyways as a cheers here's a photo for everybody that has taken the time to view the blog,

SYB Friday 666 - 1st Oct

Another dude that has been ruling Saughton gets this SYB Friday 666 post - the LAD with many guises; Ruari / Carlos / Fakie / Raw-dog / The mexican / Transfer...etc. As a welcome home for him and Wilmot - back from a Euro 'Hell tour' SYB style - hitting up england, Marsielle, Barca, Germany and the Dam - Lucky bastards! I thought it be the least I could do by giving one of them a 'welcome back to the pish weather' 666.

Here's a sequence from the Falkirk Jam.
