HUF - ‘Classic H Tour’

HUF - ‘Classic H Tour’

Throughout this August the HUF boys made their way across four UK cities with the 'Classic H' obstacle in tow! They stopped by Canada Water in London, Bute Square in Cardiff, the red curbs in Manchester and ended up at the Hyde Courts in Leeds. Hit this link to head to the full Vague Skate Mag photo gallery and then watch the full edit featuring Welcome shop riders Mike Clarkson, Dale Starkie, Myles Rushforth, James Foster and Victor Mputu alongside the HUF team and locals below!

In Britain, ‘H’ owes it’s name to the Normans, who brought their letter “hache” with them in 1066. Hache is the source of our word “hatchet,” probably because a lower-case H looks a lot like an axe.

With the final months of summer upon us, we brought our giant axe, in the form of a H-shaped ledge, to battle in 4 UK cities – London, Cardiff, Manchester and Leeds. Our warriors consisted of Tom ‘Shakes’ Delion, Cass Doig, Will Creswick, Ethan Watkins and Mike Clarkson. 

The locals were savages and chaos ensued, all of which is available for your viewing pleasure.

In association with Vague Skate Mag, Slam City, Cardiff Skateboard Club, Note and Welcome Skate Store.

In 2002, Real Skateboards pro and ex-DVS professional Keith Hufnagel opened up his own skate shop in his resident city of San Francisco. Eponymously named after his monkier, the shop was called HUF and sold the best in skateboarding brands. As popularity and custom grew exponentially, Hufnagel saw a gap in the market and made the extension to a softgoods brand.
