Tuffnell breaks the speed limit!

So to celebrate the release of Sam Tuffnell's T1000 Undercover / collaboration wheel, the lads decided to try something new that has never been done before, let alone captured!
Thanks to Jake Eley and Sim Warren, they managed to film Sam triggering a 30mph speed camera somewhere in Hastings, UK.
Undercover have always been on top of their game with their pro wheels, be sure to check out LocoSkates for the T1000 wheel. Fast, durable and long lasting!

Si Cox

Si has been a sturdy root in the British skate world for a very long time now, be it his time as a photographer for DNA magazine or Unity to riding for USD and then onto Mindgame and Xsjado, or perhaps you all just remember him as 'THAT' kid in the puberty video screaming till his balls dropped...yep, that was Si.
In more recent news Si has taken strongly to the game of skiing and has now successfully done two seasons, one in Morzine and most recently one in Whistler, Canada. Always having blading right there in his heart he couldn't wait to get back into the thick of it now that the weather is picking up. It may have destroyed is now elderly body but the shot is rad..

Be sure to check out Si's work as a specilaist in the film field or follow him on his blog,

WheelScene hits the shelves

As alot of you maybe aware already, the new British skate publication is now out and completely free of charge! Wheelscene is stepping into a new area for blading by producing a magazine that is not solely skating, it shares its content 50/50 with musical articles featuring all your favourite artists.
This issue also features our two hooligans or better known for their infamous 'lads on tour' rants and edits, Joe Atkinson has a great interview and Keir Lindsay has the first in the 'Firsts' articles.
A big thumbs up to David McNamara the instigator and editor who is bravely going where not many people will, here is to WheelScene's longevity!
