Video Daze - Sailing Into The Wind

Dan Bunn

Tidy Mike and his band of merry muckas are back with another belter of a video that's probably gonna make you feel like you've wasted your summer.

Tidy and the boys have been hard at working travelling around the UK in search of all manner of weird and wonderful spots from London to North Wales for their new video, 'Sailing Into The Wind'. Whether they're skating legendary London parks or crusty countryside ditches, you know it's always gonna be an adventure when the Fore-Cast crew jump in the Red Dragon.

'Sailing Into The Wind' features a heavy selection of Dean Lane's finest, including Clever Ryan, Baz Dan, Keen Will and Jordan Lightowler, alongside appearances from countless other legends like Jordan Thackeray, Bear Myles and Jasper Dawson-Clough who further bring the hype.

However, even amongst all these legends Keen Will still manages to steal the show by seeming to deft death every time he steps on his board. Whether he's getting tech in a ditch, finding NBD transfers at the Deaner or ollieing into an aeroplane, you never really know what he's gonna come out with but it's always guaranteed to raise some pulses.

On top of all the other insane spots the boys managed to uncover, the Sunken Road in Wiltshire has got to be at the top of the list. This utopian playground was formed when a road near Lyneham in Wiltshire started to subside, basically turning the stretch of road into a skater's wet dream complete with banks, kickers and pretty much everything else you could think of. It's safe to say a spot like this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so to be able to see Sox, Bear and the boys skating it is some historic shit.
