Mission impossible... retracing steps to get tricks

We went on a late filming mission to one spot in Chesterfield to collect some footage for the video. The deadline is coming up as the film drops this October and there's a lot of work to do.

Hyped on a sponsor pack

We get here, get set up

Vibe is good

After a tonne of hard work, attempted security busts, negotioations as well as some slams, we got what we needed

Just was happy with free Mountain Dew

Colour co-ordinated

And some new shoes on order as these had gone through to the bone!

Hooked + Kearney + Bettinson + Thomson + Begg

Hooked + friends buzzed over to chesterfield to hit some old street spots. To be fair there are loads, some good, some too old and haggerd... Me, Kearney, Jacob Bettinson, Will Begg and Chevy Thompson were the lurkers for the job.

We checked out the warm up stairs

Will front shoved as a warm up, Kearney 360 flipped them first go, Jacob hardflipped them first go

We called at Council Tax office, where everyone got a trick

We zipped over to the Tesco marble, where Chev was like a wildlife filmer

Kearney was chilling

Jacob nailed a banger

The squad + JF

Chev packs up gear

Polish that lens

Then we went to the Halfords spot with banks and bars

Everyone was pretty tired by this time

Will nosestalled it

Red hot day, footage captured, everyone smashed it
