Black Spell are proud to welcome Newcastle’s Thomas Smith to our skate team.
You’ll see Tom sporting Black Spell apparel when he’s out skating and we’ll be sharing his radness on our social media platforms so you can keep up with what he’s up to.
We caught up with him earlier this week to gain a little insight into what he’s about.
How long have you been skating?
I’m 21 and I’ve been skating for 9 years.
What’s your favourite spot you’ve skated to date?
My most favourite spot I’ve ever skated is 100%, parallel in Barcelona, most perfect blocks for manuals!
What’s your favourite trick you have under your belt?
My favourite trick has got to be 360 flip, its the best feeling trick and best looking trick I personally think.
What do you ride?
I will skate any board really aslong as it is a 8.125 and has a nice shape to it, independent trucks (highs) and bone wheels 52mm, best feeling set up!
Who’s your favourite skater? Who do you look up to?
My favourite skateboarder is either Shane O’Neil or Ben nordberg. These two have the best styles going and kill it all the time, really hypes me up to go out skating!!
Where would you like to go skate where you haven’t been before? What’s on the cards?
I would love to go to China and hit all the spots up over there in the streets! Would be a dream come true!

Nice one Tom!
