Best of 2007: Hold Tight London

Morph, alongside fellow Big Smoke skateboard filming enthusiast Henry Edwards-Wood, is responsible for the very promising and long overdue Hold Tight London project, which provides regular updates of footage and monthly edits featuring many a London head. Morph is also heavily involved in filming with The Harmony, and more recently, the Slam City video which is due to appear at some point in the future.

Filming aside, he is not afraid of hauling himself down massive sets of stairs in order to encourage a session, and even three sixty flipped the Southbank 7 at last years annual Crossfire jam on his Zip Zinger filming board.

Now read what he made of 2007, part 2 with Henry Edwards-Wood coming soon…

Sitting outside a chip shop at about 1 am with my mates just chilling, and out of some car an egg flies straight into my face. Such a good shot that I had to laugh myself!

Filming with Horsey in Westminster, some tramp just on the floor jammin’, doing his thing, he then starts to piss himself while we were skating there. He just looked up at me and started laughing along.

Bringing Bumwin up north with us to War of the Roses. Just having him there was amazing.
