Started in early September 2012, Reckless Abandon continues to grow bigger every day. Following a simple principle of quality over quantity, we set out to stand above the rest with our own unique aesthetic and approach to making clothing. We aim to be the number one skateboarding/streetwear brand.
A lot of our influences/inspirations are based around my love of Skateboarding, Tattoo Culture, Surfing, Music and Art.

So the weathers taken a bit of a turn for the worst over here in London with constant rainy days, or should I say rainy evenings so night sesh’s are pretty much a bust atm. Cabin fever brewing I’ve been watching a bunch of skate videos to tied me over to the weekends to go skate our little DIY spot with my friends. That said my friend Tom told me to check out Westgates B-side from his Made part and I’ve been meaning to watch it for a while but only just got round to it. I always knew he was sick but didn’t quite appreciate how sick this he was till I watched his B-side. You always get a bit of a more in-depth look into the “struggle/fight” us skaters go through to get tricks…. The lack of slam sections in videos now days kinda glosses over everything and makes it too perfect, if you know what i mean? But yeah Westgate is a beast! Enjoy
These photos were sent to me from a really rad dude I used to work with named Lee. He’s back in Australia now and he recently bought one of the black logo T’s and sent me these photo’s from a night he DJ’s at.
So we went down to the little spot we’ve been building on boxing day for a post Christmas shred and general hang. Everyone was messing about not taking it to seriously and Josh starts messing about on the big block. Around about the 3rd attempt he landed it with his heels on the edge of the board and fell off. Got my phone out and started filming. Around about the 15th try or so he comes up to me shows me his board that’s started to del-am and says I’m done. I tell him come on, one more try because I knew he was to close to be packing it in and BOOM!!! He does it!! And we ended up with this clip about 15 trys later. It’s just crazy because I’ve never seen the him try this before….. Kids super talented, watch out for him in the not to distant future!!!
