This Way Up
Let us take you back to 2000 when skateboards were skinny, shoes were fat and editing was emotional. This Way Up was the first ever NOTE video featuring Tony Da Silva, Ben Grove, Joe Gavin, our old marra Danny McCourt and a whole host of friends and visiting pros doing demoes. While some of those in vid might be a bit embarrassed at footage emerging of themselves so young there is no denying that this video did a great deal for the shop and the team and firmly put the Manchester scene on the map. It sold well over 1000 copies and inspired a generation of Mancunian skaters to go seek a vibe. A big high five to Simon Owen and Standby Productions for sharing this online.

Go Skateboarding Day Manchester 2014 Edit
This year for Go Skateboarding Day we teamed up with the guys at Form Distribution for a day of outrageous boneless antics. Kicking off at Urbis, we took our renegade crew of misfits across the city to terrorise all manner of Manchester terrain and battle it out for some free Lakai, Girl, Chocolate and Fourstar prizes.
Thanks to everybody who showed up and smashed it on the day!
