Jeff Montgomery – Heelflip

Down to having started a new job, and therefore 40 hours of my time disappearing each week, getting out midweek for a skate is virtually impossible. However myself, Lewis and Jeff managed to align our time off to one precious evening a few weeks ago and ventured out to the local shit-spot where Jeff (once he heard there was a camera in my bag of course) got to work on a few tricks, one of which was a heelflip so buttery I almost didn’t believe it.

Jacob Nixon – Boardslide

DSB ventured to Donegal town recently to skate some spots and Rory Sweeney takes us to a “perfect” handrail, when he said perfect he meant a cm high lip right before you pop. By no means perfect, and definitely not as good as it looks….wee Jacob Nixon steps up and does his first street handrail.

Playa’ Hataz’

Stephen McGuane did a clear out of his harddrive and came out with this edit.


Michael Fitzpatrick – Front Shove

Its always good to see the Dubliner’s faces when they show up in the unsuspecting North. With the weather being suspicious as always, it gladly held up and gave everyone that eagerly awaited chance of a crew deep street session. With more hammers than your local building merchant a good time was had by all. Fitzy bolted this Front Shove but not before a bunch of steroid filled boxing fans gave him props.

Jeff Montgomery – Feeble

Banbridge doesn’t offer much in the way of skate spots (big surprise) but recently we revisited some of our more youthful spots from years back. This rail used to be as solid as a wall but it seems we gave it such a beating over the years and left it with more shakes than a crackhead on a comedown.

Dee Collins – Backside 5-0

We took a trip to Sweeny Country yesterday for him to show us all of the spots Donegal Town had to offer (turns out there are 2 shitty ones). On the way down we spied a hubba, we have seen this on manys’a trips but always said “next time we should stop at that”
Yesterday we finally did. Its pretty rad if you don’t mind the boy racers playing the “beep the horn as you pop” game over and over as they wait to speed of from the constant que at the traffic lights next to it.
