SYB FRIDAY 666 - 29th June 2012

Due to fucking terrible weather this week, it's all about the vert again. I can definately see a line of shred vert lords rising from Scotland in the coming years... 2 vert ramps built in the space of a year??! WTF. First video is a SYB vert teaser... SYB filmer Wilmot is seemingly sitting on a heavy stack of insane footage. So heres a little bit to get ye hyped for some more.


 Plus some old and new footage of shezz... making a breif appearance at BASSLAND tae.

You may have heard a few mentions about this randomly... So tae make things official on yon interweb, SYB and Skateboard Scotland have knocked heads together in order to try and come up with a rad way to hype and push Scottish Skateboarding as much as possible.

Before we get into the details, for all the haters: THIS IS NOT FUCKING STREET LEAGUE and WE ARE NOT TRYING TO TAKE ANYTHING OVER. So we ain't changing any formats or making any rules, this is just an extra incentive to get demons on their boards and to these events.

So tae break it down, the Concrete Slayer Series (CSS) is a competition run over the summer and the 7 main skate park competitions in Scotland: Renfrew, Livi, Elgin, Falkirk, Dundee, Perth and Saughton. 

This year, the competition is for the over 18's main division only - but we are looking to do a under 18's and veterans division in the future. We are gonna score rad shit on a GNAR-PRIX style points system this year as a tester. So whoever is 1st gets 10pts then 2nd gets 9pts, 3rd gets 8pts and so on until 10th place.... plus points awarded or taken away for random shit. The scoring system means it should be fairly open to the very end - as lads will miss events due to laziness, hangovers and random mad shenanigans.

After each comp, there will be an update poster on the SYB blog and Skateboard Scotland.

The final event will held at Saughton, where the overall winner of the will be awarded the CONCRETE SLAYER HAMMER (made by darren - who made the WOTT swords!!!) Plus whatever prizes we manage to scrounge.

So he it is love it or hate the CONCRETE SLAYER SERIES. See ye's at the next event.. Livi Skate party 2012. Oh aye Renfrew results will be posted tomorrow.

Mon tae fuck monday!

Another week another random tune from bitemywire...

Dead Moon are a husband-and-wife band, and they live in a shack they built in the middle of nowhere in Portland. They play raw as fuck garage. They press their records on a press that they bought, distribute them by themselves, arrange their own tours (which isn't often) and are probably as far removed from the music business as a band can be. They're fucking rad too.

Front board


And secondly we got some raw footage from all the perth lads. (Who were also at thistles and killing it.) Good fucking work all round I say.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 8th June



Recently there has been a rise in DIY spots due partly to hype from shredders like Pontus Alv and all the rad shit you see in the states like Washington Street. The hype infected some of the SYB lads.... eventually..... enough for us to put a shift in and start a sketchy ass DIY skate spot.

Don't be fooled, its a fucking shift and a half to get not alot done - but the hype and sense of pride ye get from shredding something you've made with your own hands is fucking GNAR!

Go out and start your own DIY spot now.
