Fantasy Factory and beyond

While it was wet we went lurking to an undercover spot...

Hooked team representing was just Kearney on this day, and we hooked up with Sam Mlot and Ash Eley

Amazing two seater to skate

Kearney floated over it about a million times

Ash got hyped with headphones on as there was no boombox amongst the rubble

We swept up too

Turn the power on

Nevermind, tv still doesn't work

Window cleaner is working too hard

And all the lights were out

At least we built a solid IKEA grade kicker

After boosting some schnizz over the sofa, it dried up and we went outdoors

Gap scoping

Repeated halfcab flips kill shoes

Pack up, get out... done

The Pool

Nike have started to put even more £££ where their mouth is, transforming a real life swimming pool into a fully ridable pool park in Dagenham.
It's a BMX park, but still worth a look on here as the design is lovely.

Have a look... Nike Pool

Video progress + some skating

With the Hooked video 'Yo Gimme Dat' dropping this Autumn, we had a progress meeting to see what we had, what we needed and who was going to bust what to make the video as good as it can be...

Becca shows team footage and they wash it down with a caramel lattes


Something's going down

Then we went for a shralp on Mark Roe's epic mini... cheers Mark

Kearney was shredding as always

Hello... so was Josh Nicholson

Ollie with KearneyPower™

New Lakai's for Kearney


Calm down dear

Josh 5-0

Then it dried up and we went here... gnarly set of stairs, Gabs had something for them

While we chilled with a few games of SKATE until we got the boot...

Epic, now we just have to get the rest of the footage for the video we need. Thanks to everyone currently filming for the friends section and sending in footage... it's going to be epic!

Skatepark's got fans...

'Like' the latest Derby Skatepark Fan Page from the Derby lurkers.

It's not from Hooked, but we support all these pages that pop up, as the more information about the park that's out there, the better!

Not long to wait now until it's ready to ride. Check out the latest news and project to date at the Derby Skatepark Project Blog and Facebook Group.

We'll all be skating it soon, woot!

HOME TIME - Derby Feature

The latest issue of Sidewalk well and truly features Derby and the huge picture of Daz doing a feeble fakie at the legendary mini at Mark Roe's.

'Home Town' feature including Daz Pearcy, the scene in Derby, local well loved spots and the all important Derby skatepark.

Even some of the local lurkers get a mention. Nice one!

6 Tricks on the Sabbath: Callum Moore Southglade slow mo

This month Callum does a session on the banks at Southglade, Nottingham.
The flips were a battle with the wind, which you can hear on the clip. Have a look, and relax with the slow mo flow.

Yo... gimme dat footage for the video

With not long left until we start editing for the Hooked video 'Yo Gimme Dat', we stepped up the presence of lurker-cam to action in Derby City. Here's what we saw.

BOOM, a massive Kearney TrĂ© ™

Ready for anything position

Becca films Will for the Hooked video

Then we headed to Wirksworth (which is in dire need of repair)

Josh Nicholson smashed a frontside flip over the hip... then we went because the park was a bit haggard.

Skate with us, be in the video.
