The Hold Tight London project is one of those little shining examples of motivation and creativity that deserves some coverage. Bringing together groups of skaters throughout London and presenting the accumulated video footage as a series of regular episodes online, it’s one of those things that you can easily lose a few hours working your way through. The skating is top notch and the filming and editing by Henry Edwards-Wood and Morph raised the bar considerably.
The recent ‘Extended Episode 12″ is a 24-minute DVD production that adds a little competitive fun in the form of ‘North V. South’. Hailing from Fairfields in Croydon, I’ll always be biased towards the southside, but I’ll grudgingly admit that the Northern section is equally impressive. With the support of Slam City and DVS, the guys were able to get this one professionally duplicated and out in the shops. Check out the saucy little Quicktime trailer below that I’ve poached from their website.
To celebrate the release of the project, DVS got a couple of shirts printed up, featuring the photography of Sam Ashley and my good buddy Dom Marley. I’m always partial to a photo of Fairfields, so, as nice as Sam’s photography always is, the South shirt gets my vote here!
