Strictly speaking, this isn't a JUX project, but we've every reason to be proud of it. Our own Danny Cartwright (you may have heard of him) is a team rider for the new company from South Wales and his opening part in this promo video really sets things up nicely.
The brand itself is run by a few really sound lads with a quality work ethic and a great ethos, focusing a 'do it yourself' attitude to the design and creation of their products- collaborating with photographers and artists and ultimately making everything themselves. You can read and see more from those guys (and photo's by Royden) in their interview with Caught in the Crossfire, or on the website.
We went down to Swansea recently for the opening jam at Exist Skatepark- a session that became a really sick weekend shredding with the team, who showed us an incredible spot and took us for a beer or 20 afterwards too... I'll leave out the stories of one of the boys sleeping on the pavement outside the club following 20 minutes of piano playing and influencing an entire bar to spontaneously break out into Abba and Queen classics, but needless to say it was a highlight. That and some real hearty laughs.
Back to the edit though, and as promo video's go, this one is an absolute pearler. Footage was sent from all over the country for Owain to put together, to show off a little bit of what each of these riders is capable of. Having the likes of Welsh Tommy, Mikey Wright, and Sam Austin on a team is always going to do wonders for a company so when you throw them all into the mix with our mate DC something special happens.
So yeah, with Danny involved in front of the lens, and Owain, little Joe, and Royden involved behind it, we're pretty pleased with how this one's turned out. Hope you all enjoy it.

A few weeks ago, we posted a video edited by Alan Glass aka PixelsTV featuring a few 'RAW' bangers from our little ripper Jordan Sharkey... The problem with that was that none of us really gave a fuck about what Pixels wanted to do with that little RAW footage, what with it being dead RAW and that, filmed at RAW spots and RAW scratches on the lens...
The real party is (and was always going to be) right here- in Sharkey's full street part, filmed and edited by Mr Owain John with contributing footage from Royden. Featuring all of the best footage from the last year, single clips, lines and bails, after travelling far and wide to hit p weird and wonderful spots (that are proper RAW), the lads have put their heart and soul into getting this finished. My days what a treat it is too; six minutes worth of chillers, spillers, hammers, and mind blowers, there's no way you can just watch it once.

I'm loving this one. Danny Owain and Joe filmed a few more lines whilst chillin' at the Deeside training facility and made a little short edit with a rad concept. Perfectly timed editing blends all the tricks together to make one massive line that is a real treat on the eyes. Well played boys!

Dave's camera is back from the hospital! Which means twice the amount of VX1 goodness to feast your eager eyes upon. Sony Montana came out to play again in full working order- sound and all- on an extremely soggy evening in Chester, as the skies lit up with electricity. Danny and Dave found themselves undercover at the classic yellow level spot at the multistory car park and thrashed out a load of lines and shit around the mostly vacant vehicle storage area. It looks like Danny got some new shoes too, I don't know, check his instagram.
I don't think anyone took any pictures though, so in case you're unsure- this is what a car park looks like courtesy of google images...

Ready for summer yet? Hyped to bag up some footage? Here's a little 2 minute taster of what went down around parks last summer, featuring a load of throwaway clips that never got used... we've already bagged up a load of tricks for this years edit, so keep your eyes peeled for some fresh edits & if you see us out & about, come get involved!
Anyone who's ever skated with Si will know that the guy has one of the most unique styles around. He also has an impeccable ability to keep everyone on the session fully hyped up and there is never a dull moment when he's pushing his wood with you.
So Dave, James Harbridge and Si went down to a secret DIY spot to bust out some clips at dusk and it turned out to be quite a productive session- who'd have thought you could get a whole edit done on just one home made quarter pipe and an abandoned tractor trailer?
As the BBQ sizzled away Mr Davies came up with some truly ridiculous maneuvers which I'm sure will never be repeated on this spot again! Feast your eyes!
Mega props to those who built the ramp too... you know who you are! And I swear if anyone asks where it is I'll give you a slap myself.

Last year Danny fired out a few ridiculous combinations for Forecast Magazine (they're rad- check 'em out at forecastmagazine.com). Not entirely sure how this one slipped through the net and avoided the blog, better late than never though, and always worth another viewing. Bangerrrrzzzz!

You know how it is- you go skating loads & loads and gather a tonne of footage to be distributed left right & centre for sections, full parts, welcome videos, sponsor reels & edits for the hell of it... and there's always a load of extra stuff that sits there fully ready to go, excited to be released unto the anticipating eyes of the public.
Well, after about a year of collecting clips, Owain's team video is finally ready to go. There's stuff from all the lads all over the place, a crazy noseslide by Andy, some rolling around in old derelict garden centres, loadsa lines by Owain, silly stuf from Sharkey that'll make you pull a well confused face, team trip to Sheffield, and a section from Danny that's just proper all-round proper sound. And as if that's not enough, there's a cameo appearance from Royden who teaches a lesson in how not to film skateboarding.

A few of the boysies went up to Manchester for the Route One jam a couple of weeks back. The intention was to film loadsa clips and shoot loadsa photos but in the end little Joe broke his arm trying some mad trickery the day before the jam, which meant I [Royden] was responsible for bagging up the footage of everyone, which meant I didn't get many photos which was kinda disappointing. As well as that, there was the slight issue of waiting around for Sharkey to take his driving test before heading off- or so we thought, until we got the call saying "Yeah fuck that, I can take a driving test whenever- I wanna go skating, lets go now"... Sound by us mate.
It turned out to be a day of Sharkey saying "Oi film this" every 30 seconds and Danny just skating about all over the place... Dave got a couple of sick little stunts and I got the long lens on just in time to catch a few bangers down the set. Good times.
Excuse the amateur editing & filming techniques- this is the first time I've been fully responsible for a vid.

GET BUCK from JUX on Vimeo.
Bringing back the classic Sony VX1000 for an old school chilled edit, featuring some banging lines and top editing. There's something about the VX that compliments skating so well especially when it comes to thrashing around Chester rows and E Port ledges, with stuff filmed in Liverpool and Birmingham as well. IS RIGHT LADS.

IS RIGHT from JUX on Vimeo.
'Is Right' is the Chester scene video from back in 2012 filmed by Owain & featuring more homies than you could ever shake a stick at, skating all over the North West & some clips in BCN too. We had such a rad time shooting it & we're really stoked on how it turned out too, give it a watch there are some proper shredders involved!!! Here's a bunch of photo's for you too!!! IS RIGHT!!!!

On the old-school filming buzz was our man David Appleton who's been working on his first edit using his classic Sony VX1000, a sound investment if ever there was one! And at his first attempt he's created a real ground breaker.
Owain came good with some extra clips too, featuring Sharkey smashing it and a lad from Colwyn Bay who got a few tricks in too.
Royden took some pictures as well, what a surprise.

|Birthday boy's ollie over the big driveway.|
A load of the local lads got together at the Boneyard Jam for a beasty session to mark little Dave's 18th birthday, Dave and Si threw out some hammers so I got a few still's.
