Ali… well, just being Ali.
Wild camping, hiking and aching legs. That’s what our ‘little’ trip to The Lakes consisted of. Two days in, 48 hours of rain and lots of pub visits deep, we decided to hike up Scafell Pike as we thought we weren’t going to get any skating in whatsoever. Eventually, after a couple of days, the clouds disappeared and we swapped our hiking boots for our useless wooden toys.
The almighty Ciaran Haggerty turns 25 today. Power, style and control. Ciaran has it all. We have released his 2017 Wulfrunian section to celebrate his birthday. Watch it to get ultimately stoked.
18 months of blood, sweat and injuries helped curate Volume 4 of our Black Country series. This Raw Tapes episode shows an inside look into the making of it.
In situ with the release of the first ever Wolftown deck designed by James Nash, we are proud to present to you Black Country Vol. 4 – Reflections. This volume was filmed solely at Wolverhampton Civic.
Wolverhampton’s skate scene has been full of solidarity since at least the mid 90’s. The Wolverhampton Civic has provided a home to skateboarders within the city throughout the decades. After scares of the Civic being knocked down and seeing the maturity of the current skate scene grow, I decided to create this montage. I chose to film solely at Civic as I wanted to try and portray the history of the spot, as well as reflect on the real unity between skateboarders.
This volume includes skating from: Nick Binnington, Rajinder Sami, Alex Ramsell, Ali Watson, Henry Fox, Christopher Emery, Cam Edwards, Sean Baker, Ian Bird, Dan Brueton, Jason Latchford, Jobie Morris, Ash Wilson, Shaun Boyle, Ste Kaveh, Nick Sharratt, Anthony Ackers, Burger Bigmore, Ciaran Denison, Gib, Jake Round, Luke Elks.
Filmed and edited by Christopher Emery. Additional filming by Rajinder Sami. Super 8 by Christopher Emery.

The Black Country is a region of the West Midlands in England, and commonly refers to all or part of the four Metropolitan Boroughs of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. The 14-mile road between Wolverhampton and Birmingham was described as “one continuous town” in 1785. The name is believed to come from the soot from the heavy industries that covered the area, although the 30-foot-thick (10 metre) coal seam close to the surface is another possible origin.
Filmed throughout The Black Country and its surrounding areas, this volume includes skating from: Henry Fox, Anthony Ackers, Alex Ramsell, Ciaran Denison, Sean Baker, Rajinder Sami, Callum Sidlauskas, Luke McManus, Ali Watson, James Denning and said Jobson.

One weekend in Stuttgart, early July 2017. The Telum Skateboards TM, Alex Funk, invited us all over to skate their converted church and sick street spots one weekend with them. And so we did. Here is the aftermath…
Over the next week or two, Alex Ramsell will be releasing a zine, Sunday Service, which has all his photos printed in that he managed to capture during the entirety of the weekend.
