Plus there will be a new format for posts. Thanks for all the support over the years demons! We will be back to full strength very soon.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 21st June


Hyped to say issue 201 of sidewalk has landed through ole shralps door with a 4 page write up and photos from this years WOTT carnage at North Berwick and Aberdeen. It's worth buying solely to read Jah Ruler's verbal insults/praise to all the lads that turned up to skate. Plus some pretty class captions created by SYB, Ronso and Kerr.

To make things even better here's 2 bolt tight 360 flip photos that DIDN'T make the cut. So you can expect insane shit in the mag. Go fucking buy it, support sidewalk, WOTT and Skateboarding.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 14th June


Last night there was a beast of a sesh at Saughton for Burrows lad, Ollie's Birthday. Needless to say the sesh went off, especially with some absolute bangers getting thrown down on an OG setup trolley coming out the flat bank. None other than two of Scotland's elder OG shredders, the short wearing Bryan Jones and Nike Europe TM/Fine gent Colin Kennedy switched the steez on and smashed out some hype for the lads. Good times.

All the lads including Div, Cadam, Shezz, Dunder, Wu-Tang, Burrows were having it - SYB will post more soon. In the meantime savour this absolute banger of a 360 flip from Bryan, he fought hard for it. (Note: Div landed a 360 flip later on that he got smashed up trying tae. Wis Gnar.)

Great bit of history regarding the Scottish Scene from 98-00. When tapes were still the norm. makes you realise how good we have it with skate parks now-a-days. Serious ghetto setups back then. Genius shit.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 7th June

Front Rocking some heavy Green

Me and Tam hit this pretty well known spot in EK a few weeks back. It looks good but is a pain in the arse to get into a session on it. As usual Tam had a shit to throw down. This is one of said tricks. Getting up and out of that bank to wall is GNAR.

Most insane web-video part of 2013 yet!

Clint Walker just up'd the ante with this video part, taking street skating up a level. He has no fear of mental rails by the looks of it. Reminds me of Kirchart actually.

Friday, 19 April 2013

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 19th April

This summers goal for SYB is to try and showcase as many rippers across Scotland as possible. One said shred head is tech dread head, Aldo. You can always count on the GD crew at Renfrew to turn up with a fine bottle of wine and get a sesh! Here's Aldo getting tech with a Blunt to backtail revert oot @ Renfrew.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 12 April

There's definately some kind of force field has been created above Saughton by the collective mind power of all the lads that crave a shred there! last night it was fucking soaking west coast, so a few of us headed through to Edinburgh in the hope of some dry weather. It was still raining 5 miles fae the park then it just stopped. FUCKING STOKED.

Sesh with the lads commenced, then some out of no where a huge rail turned up and got bolted in. A few folk stepped up and tackled the beast. I have no idea what their names were but these two shralpers nailed the full length.

As much as I hate to admit I was slacking and missed a chance to skate Saughton as I couldn't be arsed with the drive. In hind sight I should have as I took a brutal slam on harsh freezing crete at about 10pm in EK. Lesson learned.

Leave the beef and skate bitching behind this weekend. Get yourself a crew, some brews and go and have a fucking laugh falling on yer arse trying to skate. It's what it should always be about right?

Hence the reason we got some stupid shit this friday. I think this is gotta be a NBD, Obeast providing the makeshift weigh for the yeti to jump out and back in.

See you on the shred.

If your Scottish and Skateboard go get a fucking copy of sidewalk asap and examine the insanity of air Colin Adam is getting at Queens Park Vert Ramp first hand. Massive props to Col for getting the cover, everyone that has seen him skate knows he is a fucking ruler. Support the scene!

Also Kingpin has a beauty of a cover on the new issue plusa sequence that you need to see - all i'm saying is Alain Goikoetxea is pulling some crazy asss shit.

Here's one from the crypt of unused photos that have been misplaced or marked for some reason... No less insane but just from a photo perspective this shot of Colin wasn't shot right so never used. But the fact he is doing a STEGG (STALE EGGPLANT) makes up for it. FUCKING BOOM.

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 1st March

Raw street footage fresh from the shred tonight. Altho the ground was damp a few of the lads went on a little spot hunt. Mainly hitting up some pretty gash spots but sometimes they can be a laugh. Prime example is Weri here ragging in off a shoddy rail into shitty bank!

A wild spot was checked but wet so will be documented in the coming weeks - GNARLIER.

Weir - Raggers it in off the top.

SYB x FOCUS Competition

So here's a little eye brow raiser for all the SYB followers out there... we have teamed up with the hella decent fellows over at Focus Skate shop to provide all the demons out there with a chance to win one of the new Focus 'Surface Pressure' boards, with 2 runners up winning a Focus tshirt.

Focus Surface Pressure Series

Head honcho, Sibs gave us a little insight into the new Surface Pressure Series...
"We've just released this series of 3 decks by long time shop collaborator Tommy Perman aka Surface Pressure. In his trademark style he has captured 3 scenes from the streets of Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Tommy has been collaborating with Focus since 2004, creating swing tags, t-shirts, prints and most recently boards. He grew up in Edinburgh and has spent the majority of his life living in the centre of cities and influenced by their rich visual clutter and the way they grow and change all the time."

So now in traditional SYB style we aren't making the comp straight forward, but of course rather stupid.

How to enter...
Go on the SYB Facebook page, look for the 'SYB x FOCUS Comp' Status, Like and Share the status then leave your answer as a comment. Or email: shralpyabass@hotmail.com

Now comes the stupid part!
We want you to come up with a fucking ridiculous 'SYB Chimera' (A Chimera is an imaginary creature made up of two different animals like a Griffen, Centuar, Sphinx.. etc). As usual, the more stupid and funny entries will be regarded highly.

If you want to pick up one of these boards the old fashion way and part with some hard earned cash, head on over to www.focuspocus.co.uk the boards are £39.95.

Friday, 15 February 2013

SYB FRIDAY 666 - 15th February

- Flo bowl is hella fun to shred.
- Iron Column lads are sound.
- Dunder can sleep in a car boot.
