APOCALYPTIC SERIES BY MURDOCH STAFFORD, BOARD 2 OF 3 - Dropping JANUARY 2010




This is the second board of the three part series that Murdoch has designed for next year, this board is simply known as "Zombies" we think it's rad just like old eighties horror movies.
Available only in 8. The amount of detail in this board is pretty ridiculous, can't wait for the real version.

Remember to check out the blog during this week for the final board and some footage!

Drizzle and Festival in Bristol = Anger management

We went up to Bristol last week on Friday, to start filming for the new video. The plan was simple, hook up with Rhys and get some stuff done, however due to a festival taking place at Lloyds this idea went completely out of the window.

Trying to film in a City during a Friday isn't really the best idea, especially when you might only have five minutes at a spot before the security guard decides to ruin your plans even more.
We did manage to film a couple of bits and bobs, which will be up loaded on here later this week, just looks like we're going to have to make the grand voyage back up soon, to get back on track.

FRENCH GRAPHICS GOOD TO SERVE!



Here's the two new board graphics, that French designed for us.We're stoked to have them finally in stock.
We hope you enjoy them, I personally prefer the ACE board, but the Rampage graphic is also sick though.
Each board is available in two sizes and are made here in the UK by the two legends, that are Joel and Ken from AThirdFoot, so you know this is some damn good quality shit.

The Rampage graphic, is available in 7.5 & 7.75.
The Ace graphic is available in 7.75 &8.

We did a LTD run of 8.25 in both graphiks, but when they're gone, they're gone.
