I spoke on a topic that’s become very near and dear to my heart in the past few years: saying “no”. It might be saying no to a project or job, or even something that you think you can’t say no to, but finding th...
So I hacked a short video review of the Brakeboard truck and wheel kit (version 3.5) together last night. Quality’s a bit rubbish but perfect being the enemy of done etc. so I’ve just uploaded it. Key product deta...In the joy of rediscovered longboarding,

Yeah it’s all getting a bit cute but thought I’d keep this selfie CU-1 did with Stevie the wonderdog. As an old curmudgeon I’m not super thrilled with the amount of make-up CU-1 is insisting on using but I have to...
This series by Hoyo (Hoyo Gran Epicure) are rolled and then stored in Cuba. I think this one was rolled in 2003 and then stored for official release in 2013. Really special, a lovely long and mellow smoke.
