Info – Beyond the sidewalk – Back to our roots

It’s been 15 minutes since I first watched this and I’m still grinning from ear to ear. Beyond the Sidewalk is a must see documentary about the first ever crossing of the USA by Jack Smith, Jeff French and Mike Filben. We had seen the promo video and heard all about the viewings, but now you can watch the whole thing on Vimeo. We’ve come … Continue reading Info – Beyond the sidewalk – Back to our roots

Throwback – The Allure of Long Distance Skateboarding

Skatefurther has been around for a almost decade. Lots of miles have passed beneath us all. One of our biggest highlights was watching Rob Thomson skate his way into the record books. Rob became a great friend of Skatefurther and it was always awesome to check into the old forum (R.I.P.) and see where he had got to in the world, marvel over his photos and … Continue reading Throwback – The Allure of Long Distance Skateboarding

Journey – The Southern Push

Alex is pushing the southern coast of the UK this summer. Traveling to Lands End (the starting point of many great journeys) and then pushing all the way, some 420m, back home.

Over to the man himself: DN – You’re all probably gonna … Continue reading Journey – 5000km from San Francisco to New York

We’ve been silently building up to this years Miami UltraSkate 2016 and the results are in!!!

Firstly, a massive shout out to every single set of feet that pressed the Tarmac this year! A mammoth effort was made by all from the IDSA to those that didn’t quite make the finishing line. Competitors flew in from all over with attendance figures at an all time high with over 90 riders in attendance. The sport is going from strength to strength. Just a shame we couldn’t afford to fly out and report from the grid itself.

Event – The Bristol Board Meet

Last weekend saw the 8th Annual Bristol To Bath charity skate take place. This was the event that Skatefurther cut it’s teeth on and we are always stoked to see how big it has got. This year was about raising money for Clic Sargent – a charity that specializes in caring for children with cancer. So far this year’s event has raised over £1300. Visit the official … Continue reading Event – The Bristol Board Meet
