Introduction Josh Blyth, Hippy Jump Just over a year ago I moved down to Cambridgeshire. Even though I’m only an hour away from London I’ve somehow only skated there once, I’ve been to the most Easterly point of the UK which is Ness Point in Lowestoft, which is where Ben Rowley can be seen bs tailsliding on the cover. I’ve met some rad people in the Fens such as Josh, who you can see above doing the hippy jump. The most recent edit to acompany this issue is titled “The Anglian Broadcast”, as the title suggests it was mostly filmed in East Anglia with skateboarding from Norwich, Ipswich, Cambridge and many other places. It can be viewed on my vimeo.

Vaughan Jones

A lot of people would have been introduced to Vaughan Jones for the first time when The National Skateboard Co released their debut promo a couple of years back. There is a severe lack of VMFJ footage online, but I think that’s because he’s too busy out in the streets making something out nothing and shredding. The best way to take in Vaughan’s skating is to just sit down and watch. Wether it’s twenty trick lines at Hyde Park or if he focusing on getting a clip or shooting a photo, the dude just skates like a man. Hailing from the crusty streets of Merseyside, he then spent years tearing up Leeds on the regs, but the bright lights of London came calling and one of the best UK skateboarders starts a new chapter down south. One thing is for sure, Vaughan ‘Mother Fucking’ Jones will always be RWTB.

Kirk Barrell

Skate Photos and Words By Rob Salmon. Portrait By Will Temple

Kirk is from a market town in East Yorkshire called Driffield which is on the Yorkshire Wolds. He’s currently in Melbourne, Australia, or was the last time I heard from him. Kirk is one of those people who can make you laugh no matter what the situation is. Here’s a small selection of photos I shot of him before he left.
