Mustard's Memories - Cam Wildsmith: The Bishcam Tapes.



So here I am again delving into the depths of my once lost hard drive. This week we get to have a look at former Canadian expat Cam Wildsmith.

For those that don't know, Cam was a regular on the Newcastle skate scene before he departed back to Canada around 2008. Known for both his amazing bowl skills and his Kerry Getz styled freak outs.

I'm not sure what he's up to nowadays but hopefully he still does a bit of shredding.

So til next week, make sure you have some mustard on your bagel.

ANT AND DEEKIES

We came across some spare Fucking Smashin' stickers in dD HQ.

The Moon Landing

The Moon is quickly becoming a pretty rad spot, the DIY commitment levels are on point with the locals. They've recently added a few extras like a painted red slappy curb and a bank to curb/ledge. I took a trip there on Sunday and although I didn't get loads of footage what I did get was some good shralp nonetheless.

First of was Rob focusing his board - Slack.
Blayne was having a break, best seat in the house.

Darren Mason Front 180 switch salad
Blayne left the scene with a Muska Back*pack Smith
Here's a little edit, short but sweet.

The Core

Today we skated one of Newcastle's newest spots, 'The Core' by St James Park. Still under construction and not quite a bust yet, make the best of it while you can.


Adam Todhunter may have just released Coast to Coast but his camera is already back out. 


The Native employees were out in full force. Lewis was completely over it, but Lewis is always completely over it. 


Create Skate is back in the country, his travels have led to his new all terrain approach to skateboarding.

Everybody loves a backsmith.

OH NO IT'S THE WHITE SOX.

IRON MAN DEEKIES

WHITE SOX X DIGITAL DEEKIES by MATTHEW P SMITH.

.

dD 5BRIDGES JAM

Last week saw the North East skate scene assemble at 5 Bridges to compete for Netto Prawn and Gateshead Council's skate of the year. 


The dD logo was sprayed onto obstacles and hopefully drilled into your brains in order to sell a t shirt or 2. 

The dD staff were all called out for the event, pay and a half of course. Buster takes an opportunity for a swift snoot break.



Potentially the greatest games of S.K.A.T.E to ever occur at 5 Bridges. Numerous late flips and a high volume of switch tricks. 10/10.

Dan Main; regulating.


Matthew Smith, White Sox representative was present. He landed a fantastic backwards spin to front angled grind on the lunch box; so a beer or two was the necessary celebration procedure.

Time is money. Mustard finished his filming duties and made a swift exit.


LTD Edition Stella X dD

To avoid any unnecessary bottle stains on the ledges everyone was designated their own coaster thanks to Vans. #keepbridgesclean 


Brandon Justice, the hometown hero showed Gateshead how to win a game of S.K.A.T.E against one of Newcastle skateboarding's most notorious O.Gs Scott Cherry and also took second place in the kicker  to ledge comp.



A few years back the Digital Deekies introduced you to The Cougar, a specimen initially created with the DNA of Jamie Errington and the first man to try pilgrim roof 'Chewy'. The experiment that has now matured into the fearless powerhouse you see today.  



Barcelona x dD


A few months ago I invited myself on a Barcelona trip with Lewis, M.C. Michael Kelly and Chips. Last week we flew out for a taste of summer sun, steezy nollie crooks and buttery ledges... which is exactly what we got.

We drank cerveza, checked out lasses and laid down the shred. See Lewis here striking his holiday pose before heading straight to Mc Donalds. We also saw Jesus Fernandez snap a child's board at Macba because he couldn't land a trick. Ask Lewis for details.
We got carried away teasing Chips. He left us a few times as he was pretty over it. Here you see Chips returened to the group on our last evening together. I was stoked. Chips was not.
I didn't take many skateboarding photos however here he is Lewis with a Bs Powerful slide feat. Arc de Triomf.
Very very steeze.
This happened every morning. Chips was not as happy about it as he looks.
Chips was so over us we had to dismantle the lock from inside so he would hang out with us.
 This was our tourist day... and the reason why skateboarding is better than everything else.
Next time anyone sees M.C Michael please call him a racist because that is what he is.


I would like to make it aware of how honored I am to make a post on the worlds most prestigious and exclusive blog out there, lets hope its not the last.
