Neighbourhood: Jez

Being based in Brighton, a lot of what we do on the site comes from a south coast perspective, influenced by the people around us and the laid back culture of the city we live in. Slightly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of London, but also close enough for it to impact our outlook, it’s important to us to distinguish ourselves by documenting the lives we live through our experiences.

Our latest project dubbed ‘Neighbourhood’, is a new video series that looks to give more of an insight in to the Brighton skate scene and celebrate the characters around it. The first video in the series focuses around Jez as he hits up The Level …

“Jez skates about once every month or so, which is very little for your average skateboarder. Every time he does come out on a board you will undoubtedly see him take about 3 slams to the head, learn 4 or 5 new tricks you’ve never seen before, collide with a number of small children and smile and laugh the whole way through. He’s 100% one of my favourite dude’s to watch skate, but I had never seen any footage of him before. That pushed me to ask him to spend half a day filming at the park. I thought it’d be cool to represent one of the lesser known Brighton skaters, who has a slightly different outlook on things and is also involved in a lot outside of skateboarding” – Sirus
