SYB FRIDAY 666 - 30th March

It's been a while but we Joe is back with a 666. This was from a recent trip tae Burntisland for a sunday all day shred. Except from retarded local scooters the park its always rad and a gid laugh.

Dunder was just cruising about and firing off these steezy smiths wi some suspect shades oan. I would also recommend the chippy beside the park - fresh as fuck and tasty as all hell.

SYB Friday 666 - 23 March 2012

Ye can take the lad out of Aberdeen, but ye canna take the Aberdeen out of Raberdeen....?!? Who fucking knows if that even made a molecule of sense... but I know what does make a lot of sense in skateboarding - seeing rad shit getting landed when your out for sesh.

SYB hyper & lurk machine, Rab has been down in Glasgow for a week or so now, and has been tearing shit up with his chonged out wee puss... so it was only right he should get a 666. After a near miss with a flash, Rab smashed out this polejam 180 at the transport museum.

Mon tae Fuck Mondays!

There's been loads of good gigs around here lately, and this week brings us (amongst other things) Talib Kweli at the Arches in Glasgow. The Arches is a bit hit-and-miss sound wise, but if they manage to not fuck it up, this'll be excellent. Here's a track he probably won't play, from the amazing 'Coast II Coast' compilation of a few years ago.

Shit skate photographers say...

I doubt I have the expertise to say SYB photog does any of this shit... but it's still funny as fook.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 16th march

Afraid the stocks of photos in the SYB HQ are depleted so we are seeing the LAD Paris again. This time breaking out some dead of the night, ghetto underpass skating.

It's probably not the best angle in the photo, but this thing is so fucking hard to skate. there is a wee gap up and the tiles are slick, so you gotta charge it and cut in - then just hope for the best.

Paris - wallride,  bellshill

Side note: I only noticed this after looking at this photo on the computer but if ye look a little closer the roof is slagging Paris for his wallride. hahaha. Seriously that wisnae photoshopped.

Mon Tae Fuck Monday!

Half of Vittorio Mazzoni is a 20 year-old skateboarding Cumbernauld resident called Josh. He's a good guy, and last year the duo released an album on cassette - although I'm pretty sure it's sold out - but you should check 'em out online anyway. It's the perfect soundtrack to just about any time, but definitely suits a bleary Monday.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 9th March

Here's another little left over from the first vert session at NB. Somehow seeing the innards of the ramp makes it more gnarly but also makes the size of this beast alot more tangible. So as the hype settles around the RSVP event it's now time to get hyped for this years spring/summer. SYB reckons the way this year has started it is gonna be a fucking beast of a one.

Mon tae fuck Mondays!

"The sun is actually out, so it's time to phone in sick or leave work early and get a skate on while the kids are at school. Remember to always phone in sick for two days, so its more believable. Especially when you're taking Monday off."

Bite my wires weekly tune...

SYB Friday 666 - RSVP report special

The first RSVP - "Radical Scottish Vert Party" invitational
The Beast

The term 'radical' is often coined far too much in skateboarding, but the return of a proper Vert ramp in Scotland really does deserve it. to commemorate this occasion, heads were knocked together and ideas were formed to create the RSVP invitational.

Capital of france - Beastly BS grab

Socks - Mosher drop

At short notice Santa Cruz, indy trucks, SYB, Acrete, Focus and of course North Berwick came onboard to organise the event. Possibly due to this short notice, everything in the lead up was a bit mental but on the night the event came together with a host of shredders from across Scotland made the journey through on saturday to get a proper session on the 10ft vert ramp. Before I go into details of what happened a massive shout out has to go out to the team at North Berwick who made this happen - you know who ye's are - fucking respect!

Cronso - FS Tail Nosegrab

As for the line up we had: Rawdog, Aaron Wilmot, Adam Paris, Stu Graham, benson, Colin Adam (injured), Mark burrows, Scott Burrows, Russ hall, Socks, Brian Inglis, Kieran Menzies, Colin Taylor, Paul Silvester, Paul Hastings, Tam laughton, beast, bud gee, Hank Scorpio Youngo, Kerr, T-bag, Hus, Gus, Freddie Lusk, Shezz, dunder, Skateboard Scotland heeds, Clan Skates heeds, The almighty King Lad and a lot more lads I'm afraid i've forgot. But it's needless to say everycunt turned out to support Scottish Skateboarding.

Kerr - 5.0 Rag-in

The setup for the event was never announced but SYB, Acrete and King Lad devised a 'raffle ticket fur a trick' format, where anyone hyped to skate and land something on the vert received a raffle ticket for a prize at the end of the night.

Stu - Meat Air

The next 3 hours became a blur of free beer and everyone dropping in to lay down some mental shit. Stand outs on the night included Socks going all mosher drop, Kerr going paddles in white skin tight jeans, Youngo laying down the gnar, T-bag turning up late and just fucking killing it, Hus runs getting mad hype, Stu battling the beast of vert extension, wee mini rippers dropping in.

Treebeard - FS Smith

Before the event it was decided that we would keep it on the down low, but there were a few prizes for the lads going all out.
- Colin Taylor got biggest air for going ballistic and hitting the roof with an air.
- Adam Paris got second place for making the ramp look like a mini.
- Rawdog got first place and a concrete viking trophy for taking the vert skating to the next fucking level. - Paul Silvester won best trick for a vert tech/Chris Miller style pop shuv nose slide.

Paul Silvester - Shuv it noseslide fakie

To be honest tho, we wanted to make sure it was all about the Scottish Skate scene coming together and celebrating shredding. This definitely couldn't have happened without North Berwick, King lad (Santa Cruz and Indy), Youngo (Acrete) and Focus, so a massive cheers goes out to them.

Rawdawg - Hangtime

Cheers to every shred lord out there for making this event rad. SYB.
