Chances are that you don’t live in the UK, you probably haven’t heard Joe’s name or seen pictures or footage of him in a while. We wondered what’s been keeping him under the radar and figured it would be nice to share his skills and style with the rest of the world. Check what he has to say and enjoy the clip he put together for us. There’s more to come this year from this quiet Mancunian.

  2. Growing up skating in Manchester and going to NOTE was mandatory before going out in the town for a skate. Seeing all of the crew and hyping up the day was always entertaining. I first saw Joe at Urbis and watched him destroy the place with is big bag of tricks. I introduced myself. He was such a humble and friendly dude which in my opinion makes him way more rad as a skateboarder.

  3. If you are a skateboarder, I highly advise you to got to NOTE to get the low down on the skate scene. Go skate with Rad dudes such as Joe Gavin, Eddie Belvedere, Nick Stansfield, Dave Monaghan, Olly T....etc. Pick up some Etnies too!

  5. Mate its Manchester a tan is unheard of. In my opinion no other shop in Manchester lives up to Note, just a cut above the rest.
