Mark Lee’s Park Edit has emerged from the lost and found archives. Originally filmed by Miles Johnson back in 2012, it was thought these clips were long gone. Waiting on one final Gap clip before a corrupted hard drive put this project to a long ice bath.
But Isolation has been kind to us in some ways and allowed Miles to realise the power of cloud back ups and raise this one from the dead.
Putting his Miz Clan mastery to the test, this awesome edit from 8 years ago highlights how long Mark’s been rightly considered one of the UKs finest homegrown talents!
Now Tru team manager, Mark heads up the Tru Apparel team and paves the way for us all when it comes to ‘putting out quality content’, although when you’re that versatile and consistent, stacking clips is pretty daaaamn easy.
Mark takes to indoor and outdoor parks all over the UK to show us all how it’s done in a subtly hammerful, yet chilled edit to ‘Beatflow Freakshow’ by the Foreign Beggars – the type of edit we all wish we could produce. We’re just thankful that this ones seen the light of day again after so long gathering dust!
Props to Mark and Miles for inspiration, it’s nearly time to ‘officially’ take to the parks again. Stay safe y’all!

Jonny Quayle, or Q1000 as he’s known within the team, has been hitting up his local parks to scope out fresh lines.
And in Tru Q1000 style, does not go easy.
Jonny sees things differently. He sees a grindbox, then he looks past the grindbox and sees at the precarious ledge with little run in and run out, then he looks at the best line up to it, nothings standard about these lines.
We have no clues where Jonny gets the motivation from to smash these out solo, one park after another, but then with such awesome little parks around, you can’t blame him for wanting to go rip them apart.
Parks are: Handforth – with a box edge and a mini to drop to play on, grooves were ground and then barrel rolls were thrown in to show off Johnny’s versatility.
Poynton – A gritty looking bowl park, Jonny heads straight to the extension and the hump, hitting tech grinds both natural and switch. Also working out the spine to half cab approach.
Bollington – Straight to the sub box for a grind massacre and fighting the tru acid. Also working on the wall ride and beasting a topsoil and 270 back royale, smoothly before ending with some flip and spin transfers.
Standard Jonny’ing, with an added beard for style points.

Throwback edit from 2013. A outside session was cut short due to rain so we went to creation and skated the boxes.
Its Thursday again and we have got another old edit for you this time Aaron Turners spring edit from 2013.
Its Thursday again and that means one thing we are re posting one of our old edits and this one is one of our favourites of the early edits. Mark, Dale and me (Tom Perrigo) traveled to stay with Ben at his uni house in Nottingham and a lot of skating went down so check it out.

Here is another edit from way back in 2013, back when I (Tom Perrigo) used to live in Southampton so I came back to to my home town of Birmingham to visit Ben Sheldon and Mark Lee for the weekend. Even though it was very cold and it even snowed, we managed to film this cool little edit so check it out.
