Welcome to Style Revision, the bit where we post skate videos that get us hyped to skate. New or old, these video parts are all about style. So sit back relax, and enjoy... First on the list: Van Wastell's 'One Wish'. This is a compilation video made by Van's brother after his passing. Van’s style is classic, reminiscent of the east coast power skaters of the 1990s such as Reece Forbes or Ricky Oyola but he also brings a relaxed and controlled element making Van’s style one of the most enjoyable to watch. Van sadly lived only 24 short years but the impact he has left on skateboarding will live forever. According to his brother Van rode an 8.1” deck. Special S/O to Mike Fox for filming some of this. RIP Van. We hoped you enjoyed this video. If you would like to see more videos of Van some are linked below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u3S1mH_7Do&ab_channel=ThrasherMagazine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpIlhImbP9A&ab_channel=VanWastell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqwQV3oJhzE&ab_channel=KrookedSkateboarding https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sH9UUALwqb8&t=65s&ab_channel=VanWastell Thank you for watching, see you soon.

Leaving our first ever premises was scary but hype too. At Brixton's Baddest we run a strict NO-SNAKE policy so we had to move out of there and fast. Thanks to Blast Skates we were blessed to get this iconic spot at Brixton Arches for a month or so til while we sorted everything out. That was it! We felt more like at home. Within 2 days we knew all locals by name and everyone was welcome to our shop. As the head snake put it 'we were finally there with all the Brixton scum, where we belong". And we did take full advantage of that! Every week we hosted a free event open to all. Thank to Old Blue Last Beer and Vita Coco we were able to provide free drinks to everyone passing by. Eventually everyone got together. We hosted film screenings, we had DJ's, we did radio shows, we had a pop up with local rad illustrator Bans. But most importantly we were happy to meet new people, open conversations about skateboarding, about South Bank and Stockwell regeneration. Non skaters realised how important our community is and we as skaters realised...

Vita Coco and Old Blue Last Beer are providing us beverages so please have a seat, chat to the person sitting next to you and watch some films with us! The event is open for all,if you miss your train come back down and chill. Robots of Brixton is an architectural film project that explores the relationship between architecture, class and race. Using Brixton, (or an augmented Brixton) as backdrop, the project uses robots as metaphors for a future intake of migrants to the UK. It acts as a commentary on the cyclical nature of the working class in areas with diverse populations such as Brixton. The projects shows Brixton as a degenerated and disregarded area inhabited by London's new robot workforce. The robots are built and designed to carry out all of the tasks which humans are no longer inclined to do. The mechanical population of...
Not gonna lie, we fully went it on that one. We had lobsters and cocktails, where was your lobster at your local skatpark? Warm thank you to Ganj Wax and Keen dist! A post shared by brixtonsbaddest (@brixtonsbaddest_skateshop) on Apr 22, 2017 at 5:09am PDT
The UK and European premiere of Japanese film maker Katsuya Nonaka’s skateboard and shakuhachi documentary Future is Primitive is set to screen at House Of Vans London on Friday 9th September’s edition of #SkateFryDays. In Future is Primitive, Nonaka talks to leading skaters from all around the world, as well as Japanese and non-Japanese players of the traditional bamboo flute, the shakuhachi. Although these are two seemingly very different activities, both are now encountering changing status and a rise in popularity. A new version of the shakuhachi is being manufactured which is easier to play alongside Western orchestral instruments and skateboarding has just been confirmed as being a recognised sport in 2020’s Tokyo Olympics. Alongside the screening, Katsuya Nonaka will be participating in a Q&A with Daphne Greca from Brixton’s Baddest skate shop. Future is Primitive, Friday 9th September 2016 at House Of Vans London.

We organised a sale for the woman that skate. Not trynna discriminate but sadly all industries do. Did you know that women pay around 37 percent more on everyday items with exactly the same functions as their male counterparts? Like pink razors are double the price than blue. Even kids toys are more £££. On top of that we live in a country that taxes periods as a luxury, taxing half the population. So maybe we didn't attract as many females as we were hoping. But at least every boy that came to the shop that week got a discount after having to listen to me talking about the fact and left pissed off about the sexist pricing in the rest of the industries. Skating being a very male oriented industry is one of the best places to start making a difference. Maybe by educating all males on everyday struggles we as women face might contribute to the Change :) I gave a small interview about that to Gyaldem, please read here Also co-hosted a rad event at Buster Matis with Page She after having a good radio warm up at Balami ...
