Wistful thoughts of Summer...

Photographer from BN1 magazine David Smith was on hand to snap a load of photos of the Goonfest jam that happened back when the sun used to come out, and kindly sent them over for our viewing pleasure. Have a peek at these few shots, and check out his website for more local snaps.

We all knew how badly this was here it is. Last week saw the opening of PUSH, Brighton's new independent skate shop. And it's looking damn good already.

35 Ditchling Road
(The road running along the west side of the level)

Become a fan of their Facebook Page for more regular updates.

Open Mon - Sat 10-6

Matt Ransom gave me some words about it...

Basically my mate Chris saw that Brighton was seriously lacking a decent shop and asked me if I'd be keen in helping him set one up. I jumped at the chance and now, 3 months down the line we've been slowly but surely building things up from scratch - totally gutting and renovating what was an old coffee shop into the brand spankers skate shop you'll see there today. Everyone who works here skates and has done for years and that's the way we think a skate shop should be done.

We've got loads of boards in stock, everything from 7.5's to 9 inch beasts from the likes of Anti Hero, Creature, Real, Girl, Chocolate, Krooked, Santa Cruz, Stereo, 5Boro, Sk8Mafia, Flip, Magenta, Witchcraft and most recently Drawing Boards, with more brands in the pipeline such as Palace, Enjoi, Baker, Cliche, Almost, Alien Workshop and Lovenskate to name a few.

One thing that I feel is worth mentioning with the boards is that we ONLY use the best grip, Mob, and you'll get a free sheet with any board you buy - standard! Fuck that Fracture shit

Obviously we've also got trucks, wheels and bearings from Thunder, Independent, Venture, Spitfire, Momentum, Bones, Chocolate and Girl with all manner of ABEC's and sizes to choose from, as well as skate books, hip flasks, ashtrays, playing cards, iPhone 4 cases, a signed Ryan Sheckler board and all the other essentials that you'll need for Christmas!

As well as all the hardwear you could ever possibly want we've got a bunch of clothing that we're really into from Fourstar, Diamond, Chocolate, Girl, Thrasher, Creature, Anti Hero, Baker and a local independent brand called T.C.C. (The Cro Club) plus beanies, snapbacks, sunglasses, gloves and other stuff aswell.

To top things off we will be stocking some of our favourite skate shoes, I can't reveal any more that than yet as we're still sorting out our footwear lines but feel free to pop in and see what kicks we will have arriving over the next few weeks.

So there you go...this is the ONLY skate shop in Brighton, and the only place you need to go to buy anything skate related. If you don't see what you want then just ask and they'll see what they can do, unless it's a scooter or a Fracture deck.

What a sight

Ok. this place has been on hiatus a bit again, and I know I've said this before, but it's gonna be back in business from now on, so bookmark this shit and keep checking regularly.

Partly inspired by this...went down the goon at half 5 last night. Counted 30 people, not a single one of them not on a skateboard. It was indeed a session!

Hopefully the hype keeps going through the winter. I'll do my best to help on here. I know there's some interesting stuff coming up!
