Wheels Of Steel - UK Vert Series 2017

The Wheels of Steel contest went down last weekend at Adrenaline Alley in Corby, and honestly the level of skateboarding was amazing from all categories. This contest, brilliantly put together and run, was the baby of Mat Marlow and marked the first leg of this year’s UK Vert series. The attendance at this round of the series is the highest that it has ever been, with over 40 participants taking to Corby’s 14ft vert ramp to showcase their skills.

The day kicked off with the B group which had to be split into qualifiers due to the high level of people taking part. The top riders from each qualifier then went through to the B group finals and featured some of the country’s best up and coming vert talent. Riders as young as 8 years of age had no fear as they dropped in on this monster of a ramp to perform backside grabs, front side 360 ollies and all manner of stalls on the coping. Each rider had 4 runs with their best three runs being counted towards their overall finishing position. The stand-out riders were Kieran Waterton who took 1st place, Lucio Oliveira with his power and height out of the top of the ramp landing him 2nd place, and Callum Waterton who took 3rd place. Other notable riders were Eddie Lowe as well as the two young ladies, Freya Brooks and Ellie Waters, who showed it’s not just guys who can skate vert.

'B' Group Podium
The next part of the day moved away from the young upstarts of the sport to the elder statesman in the masters category. This featured 9 riders, all pushing to show the youngsters that they still have a thing or two to learn. The skating was fantastic with each rider having their runs before they moved into a timed free-for-all session which allowed them to showcase their very best individual tricks. Jussi Korhonen was really in a class of his own and a real highlight of the day as he threw in huge 540’s, consistent flip grabs and a perfect Cab Heelflip Indy on his way to taking 1st place. Death skateboards’ Dave Allen took 2nd place and Christopher Hudson took 3rd.

Masters Podium
The last category of the day was the A group, featuring the country’s elite riders. Here the skating really stepped up with everyone being super consistent and putting some really good, high quality runs together. The sense of competition and the passion from everyone was no more evident than when we were spectating from the top of the ramp with every rider keen to get in and give it their absolute best. Again, the contest was made up of individual runs followed by a timed free-for-all session. Stand out tricks were Matthew Carlisle’s huge 540’s, his many flip grab variations and his massive 720. Ex Enuff rider, Alex Griffiths, put down his first 360 varial, and Ethan Doody almost had his ride in revert going into the ramp. 1st place went to Chris Spencer who had a deep bag of tricks and a smooth style to match. 2nd place went to Matthew Carlisle and 3rd to Jim Langran.

'A' Group Podium
As far as a bench mark, the Wheels of Steel contest definitely sets the standard for the other legs of the UK Vert series to live up to. Not only was the talent on show impressive but the organisation and smoothness of the event was spot on and we can only put that down to the dedication to the guys running and hosting the event. It was a privilege for Enuff to be involved in this event and to help support the evidently growing vert culture in the UK. Skate boarding’s in a happy place.

Kicking Off The Year With Roxana Howlett

We recently checked in with team rider, Roxana, to see how her year is kicking off!

Hi Roxana how have you been keeping? How was Christmas for you?
Hi. I’ve been good, skating lots and having fun.  Christmas was great thank you - I got some cool kneepads and a new helmet, and I got to visit Brighton and skate down there which was good.

You seem to be having a busy start to the New Year. We’ve already seen your great result at the Ben builder skate jam at Mount Hawke, how do you rate your first month and a bit of 2017 so far?
It’s been a really good start to the year - since xmas I’ve learnt front shuvs, landed my first 6 stair and had a rad weekend at Camp Hillcrest. I’ve also been working on my backside airs.

You have been riding for Enuff for a good few months now, how have your experiences been riding for us during that time?
It’s been fantastic riding for Enuff, it’s great to feel part of a team and to go out skating and represent you guys,  and it’s made me want to work harder landing new tricks.  I’ve met some of Enuff’s other young riders as well recently which was great

What are your plans going into the summer months? Any upcoming competitions you are looking forward to and what is highest on your trick list to learn this year?
I’m going to Florida in April on holiday so hoping to get some skating in over there! I will be entering all the local skate jams in Devon again this year and will be travelling down to the Unicorn Jam in London.  Any others I hear about I’ll be there! I definitely want to up my street game this year so am looking at landing kickflips, heel flips and more stair sets!

As a young girl in skateboarding what do you think of current levels of female participation? Do you see more girls taking part and who would be the female role models you currently look up to?
I don’t see many girls skating in local parks very often, but my good friend Lola skates and we meet other girls at Girls Nights at indoor parks and at jams.  Female role models for me have to be Lucy Adams (who I met recently and she’s awesome), Stephanie Nurding and Lacey Baker.  I think skating will become more popular with girls if they see more girls out there shredding the parks.

Lastly is there anyone you would like to thank for supporting you in skateboarding so far? Parents or shops or anyone who has motivated you and kept you going.
I’d like to thank my parents for putting up with my total obsession and love for skateboarding and for driving me to all the parks.  Thanks to my big sister, Molly, for constantly having to put up with me shouting “Watch this trick”! And lastly thank you to my great support network at The Lodge Indoor Skatepark and to my other sponsors SMB Bearings and Hi-Top Clothing.

Roxana Howlett - Welcome To The team!

We are very pleased to welcome our first female rider to the Enuff team, Roxana Howlett!

How old are you and where are you from? 
Roxana Howlett age 7 and I live in Devon. 

What age did you first start skateboarding and what inspired you to first pick up a board?
Just after my 6th birthday I had a go on my sister’s Penny board and then I started watching Aaron Kyro videos on Youtube.

Where is your favourite place to skate? 
The Lodge indoor skatepark in Newton Abbot and Flowerpots Skatepark in Exeter.

What can you bring to the team? 
My local skateshop sells Enuff stuff so I had heard of them.
I can bring to the team a big passion for skating, awesome tricks and inspiring more young girls in the UK to skate.

Which skateboarders did you look up to growing up? Any local legends in your local scene or professionals you aspire to be like? 
I love Aaron ‘Jaws’ Homoki, Lacey Baker and Leticia Bufoni. Also locally I like Stefani Nurding and would like to be as good as her.

How many people are in your group of friends that you skate with on a regular basis and which guys are essential to getting a good session going? 
I like skating with Alfie, Reuben and Luke at The Lodge every week and any locals I see down at Flowerpots, but I also really enjoy skating on my own.

What is your all-time favourite skate video and which ones are you into at this moment in time? 
I haven't seen many but I like Vans European Skate Tour 2008 and Sweets.

Do you have a preference towards street skating, skate parks or vert or are you happy to experience and skate everything? 
I like skating anything but I love transition and street best.

What was the last trick you learnt? What are the next three tricks on your hit list that you would love to learn?
I last learnt Frontside rock and rolls.  Next up to crack is a boardslide on my rail (which I’ve almost got!), blunt fakies and kick flips.

Are there any video parts you are working on personally which we will see in the near future or any competitions coming up that you plan to enter? 
I’ve always got half a video in progress. I’ve entered a few competitions recently and will go in any more local ones that come up.  I also plan to travel down to London for The Unicorn Jam next year.

What do you think skateboarding holds for you in the future and what are your future aspirations? 
Travel the world one skate park at a time…. and be as good as I can be!

Here's the edit that caught our attention and got us talking to Roxana:

Alex Griffiths - UK Vert Series 2016

This year Enuff’s young vert shredder, Alex Griffiths, stepped up to the A group of the UK Vert series.

In previous years Alex has competed in the B group but this year marked a real step in Alex’s skating and a chance to compete against some of the best vert skates in the country on a regular basis.

The season kicked off at Mount Hawke on the 29th of May and only recently finished at Creation Skate Park in Birmingham on the 16th of October.

There were 7 stops along the way with the best 5 results taken to make up the final series result.

Alex managed to attend all 7 stops and placed 9th at Mount Hawke, 4th at Southsea Skate Park, 5th at Riverside Park, 7th at Beast Rampz, 5th at Adrenaline Alley, 4th at Ramp City and 2nd at Creation skate park.

Overall we are very proud to announce a 3rd place series result came Alex’s way due to his constant consistency where others dropped points, his huge bag of tricks and a smooth style to go with it. This is a huge achievement for Alex to step up to the A group and perform so well. Enuff is proud to support and have Alex on the team.

To see more of Alex and the rest of the Enuff team visit the Enuff website and social pages for a full run down of all that’s going on.

Enuff's 10 Year Anniversary Completes!

Wow! 10 years! Where has the time gone?

We are super stoked to introduce you all to our brand new range of completes that we have released to help celebrate our 10 fun years in the skateboarding industry!

From the end of September 2016, 8 new completes will be hitting the shops, all fully loaded with our mighty Decade Trucks!

The Enuff Fade is the first in line and is a great complete for beginners to intermediate riders that want a bit of colour with minimal graphics on their set-up. The colour coded Decade trucks on the Fade's deep concave deck adds a nice finishing touch.

Enuff Fade Completes - 4 Colours

The Enuff Tag Graffiti features an awesome urban graphic by Paintshop Studio. Available in 2 colours; Yellow and Green, and mounted on our Decade trucks, the Tag Graffiti is a seriously cool beginner to intermediate board.

Enuff Tag Graffiti - 2 Colours

Enuff Tie-Dye... well what can we say?! Yes tie-dye is back, so we've covered a deep concave deck in it and mounted it on our awesome Decade Trucks, to bring you one rad looking set-up!

Enuff Tie-Dye Complete

The Enuff Nihon is a mini series of 2 seriously sweet graphic decks designed by guest artist, Bodilpunk. The detail that goes into this artist's work is amazing, so we couldn't resist working in collaboration with him. Both the Samurai and the Geisha designs are printed on deep concave decks and mounted on our Decade Trucks.

Enuff Nihon Completes - 2 Designs

The Enuff Pyro Fade completes are our anniversary adaptations of the very popular Pyro boards and come in 2 vibrant colours. Again these boards are mounted on our decade trucks and are great for intermediate riders.

Enuff Pyro Fade Completes - 2 Colours

The Enuff Floral completes are not really floral at all... more "leafy"...
either way, we think they look great! Available in 2 colour ways, that are not too OTT, so if you like a board that has a hint of colour but minimal graphics, then grab one of these.


The Enuff ALSO is another great collaboration with Paintshop Studio, and brings bold blocks of colours to our range. Available in 2 colour ways, and mounted on our Decade trucks the ALSO complete makes a great intermediate board.

Enuff ALSO Completes - 2 Colours

The Enuff Geometric is a medium concave board that comes in 2 colour ways, designed by guest artist, Shaun Gordon.  A great intermediate complete to finish off our anniversary collection!

"The Story of the Decade" - Enuff Decade Pro Trucks!


2016 marks Enuff’s ten year anniversary in the skate industry, a pretty big thing to still be going strong in the British skateboarding scene. We wanted to come up with something better than just a party to mark this milestone. We wanted to create something that will last another ten years and maybe even give back to you, the riders, to say thanks for all your support! Limited edition decks are nice but they’re limited; a skate jam is great for a day but then it’s gone; posters and stickers have been done before. So what to do?

Alex Griffiths
Enuff’s key strength has always been supporting skaters at grass roots level and believing in the little guy. Decks and wheels are all much a muchness but trucks, on the whole, have been relatively unchanged for what feels like forever! Whilst we aren’t reinventing the wheel, bringing you something strong and hardwearing at a reasonable price and with performance you can believe in, perhaps was a step into the unknown.

Using our years of experience in the industry, and utilising advice from our riders and more importantly you out there in the real world, it has been a real team effort designing this truck.

There has been well over a year of research and development, 3D modelling, CNC prototypes, and test samples before we have been able to bring the Decade Truck to market.

Finally after all the work which has gone in, we are proud to give you a product that performs to a high standard and looks great without breaking the bank. Most importantly the rider and shop reaction to this truck has been fantastic. With a more competitive price than any comparable truck on the market, we seriously think you should give them a try …so head down to your local shop now to pick up your set of Enuff Decade Trucks!

Phil Long
Some of the key performance features of our truck:
• Fixed low kingpin allows for easy maintenance, added grind clearance and reduced chance of hang-ups
• Precise 19.5° kingpin geometry allows the truck to be smooth and responsive whilst remaining stable at speed
• High quality aluminium provides strength and smooth grinds
• Weight saving cavities in the hanger and baseplate maximises strength whilst minimising weight increase
• 92a SHR PU Cast bushings
• Subtle branding on both the hanger and baseplate

Enuff Decade Pro Truck - Martini Spin 

Check out this video of our riders testing the trucks out. These guys don’t say much but actions speak louder than words!
