Video hype: Plan B - Superfuture

Hold on to your hats, the first promo of Plan B's Superfuture has been released. We'll have to wait until 2010 for it, but with hot shizzle like Danny Way, Brian Wenning, Jereme Rogers, PJ Ladd, Ryan Gallant, Pat Duffy, Colin McKay, Ryan Sheckler (love of hate shecks he has some talent) and Paul Rodriguez, this is going to be mindbendingly awesome.

Plus, check the crip decks to accompany the promo.

Perfect to liven up the grey winter days!

Spot Sights

Exploring Sheffield's Arty Underbelly...or summut like that!

After having a good skate we usually try to have a wonder, looking around a city not only for new spots but also some interesting Graffs and other things that we can photo.
And Sheffield didn't let us down.

A cool mural by Kid Acne, situated on Brown Street in a car park near the Site Gallery and beside BBC Radio Sheffield.

This wicked piece was at a pub called the Rutland Arms, again on Brown Street. We were informed by Rob the Landlord that this graffiti
was by someone called Clegg, but with a bit more research it turns out its Phlegm, and was commision by the pub in the summer 08, the colours are so vibrant, well worth a close look.
And its also lit green at night, so ya can't miss it!

This stuff is best seen in the flesh so to speak, another detailed mural by Phlegm.
Situated at the traffic lights at Shales Moor and West Bar junction. Get out there and take a look!

This guy you could easily mistake for Banksy, these bits found near Devenshire Green were done by a dude named Moses.

Other Bits of the belly...

Parks Review: Alfreton skatepark

Interesting this one. Usually the term 'skatepark' means lots of ridable obstacles, interesting features to get creative on and somewhere we can all lurk and meet up. Well, there's a reason some of the locals here are shit hot on tranny - their local skatepark is made up of 1 bowl and 1 ramp...

Have a look

The bowl needs a bit of TLC

The larger of mini ramp sizes

A bit too frosty cheers

So there's a transfer after your line through the shit

Nice pony

So that's what Alfreton have got

Creative services courtesy of local scallies

So that's it. It's not much, but enough to make you into a tranny expert.
If you're desperate to try it out, you can find it here (thanks to MPORA Local)
