It’s been a very productive year for Magenta Skateboards.

“Deep in Melbourne, Australia lockdowns, Casey Foley & Morgan Campbell planting seeds with VX Grand Master Josh Roberts & friends.”

A new one from Geoff Campbell for Nike SB Australia. Ben Lawrie has a crazy good Noseslide.

Featuring Riley Pavey, Corey Young, Raph Langslow, Jack O’Grady, Hayley Wilson, Harry McEvoy, Max Couling, Sean Malto, Kieran Woolley, Noah Nayef, Rowan Davis, Sam Sutton, Anthony Mapstone, Ben Lawrie, Nick Boserio & Harry Clark.

Botched “carry out (a task) badly or carelessly” this may be the title but it’s definitely not the case in the new video from Melbournes Urbanbeargrylls.

Featuring a bunch of New Zealand’s and Australians young and finest in the likes of  Hootie Andrews, Jemery Corea , Max Couling , Mitch Cunningham , Quayde Baker , Tom Snape and Laim Mcculloch.

Just like many Australian skateboarders Ben River Lawrie is another excellent street ripper with a head of long hair who doesn’t give a damn about securities. The fact that his instagram name is @lincoln_square does not leave any questions where he got discovered by filmer Geoff Campbell and the rest is history. Definitely an interesting new face from Down Under!

“Anyone who visited Lincoln Square in Melbourne over the last five years is pretty much guaranteed to have witnessed Ben River Lawrie, aka: ‘Lincoln Child’. Nearly everyday without fail he would be there grinding his trucks to a quick and imminent death. Now the plaza is gone but the child still lives on, scouring the Melbourne streets for his new home…”Geoff Campbell

UBG Vol. 1 is a full length independent skateboard film shot in the city of Melbourne featuring, among others, Geoff Campbell, who almost got hit by a car but after that moment of shock luckily delivers a part with a great trick choice and his well-known one-of-a-kind style. Too bad the part is just 1:40 minutes.

“Arseholes, bastards, fucking cunts and pricks” ist jetzt nicht die schönste Begrüßung aber ein doch ziemlich interessanter Einstieg in Callum Pauls Pass~Port Section. Der Australier liefert verdammt modernes Skateboarding ab. Über acht Minuten Footage, gespickt mit einigen Überraschungen.

Nach Athen und Montreal ging es nun für das adidas Skateboarding Team um Mark Gonzales, Dennis Busenitz, Silas Baxter-Neal, Pete Eldridge, Benny Fairfax, Nestor Judkins, Lem Villemin, Jake Donnelly und Vince del Valle ins australische Melbourne. In gewohnter Marnier, sehr sehenswert.
