What happenned to Summer?

While the weathers so crap i thought i may as well update this here blog.

so.......



We got a new window display at the store

I snapped up this old school racer for £43 off ebay.


I took the bird to a Porsche show, she was stoked.



I saw the new 911 Sport Classic that I was very happy about.


Unfortunately it's unlikely i'll ever be able to afford one.

This one will do for now though.


If i could have any one i would have.....


Yesterday i finished off this Tech Deck block and we filmed a little web clip on it last night



And this week I've been working on these events as well as the Ride With Us Tour




And seeing as I'm such a media whore I got my van in Volksworld this month




And did a little interview with the local paper about skate coaching:

Bank Holiday Weekend



This weekend I had to act like a grown up and go to my girlfriends nieces wedding. I ended up drinking most of a bottle of whiskey and watching the Eurovision song contest with one of her mums mates.

Here's how me and the missus looked at the end of the evening, she was way more pissed than me!



On Sunday we shook of the hangovers and headed over to HUB. Unfortunately I got there too late to witness Manhead dominating the street comp but in plenty of time to see the vert comp, the highlight of which was Andy Scott on fine form, witness for yourself:

This week I need to finish off this block for the Tech Deck Design and Build comp down at Subvert:






And just for the fun of it, here's a really gay pic of Nick Knight!

Here comes the Summer!

So since my last Blog effort I've been up and down the country again. I went up to Scotland to MC at the Renfrew skatepark opening which was a bit of a nightmare to be honest. I blew another tyre out on the van, had a shit nights sleep in Travellodge, it rained on and off, the Genny played up and to top it all off I forgot the Genny. Luckily the Police had it and it was returned to HSS and didn't cost me a penny.

Wingy was up staying for a few days last week and Manhead and Scotty popped round so we got the barbecue on. Scotty poked the fire, Wingy cooked, Manhead ate houmous and I put my bike together:



This weekend was a scorcher so I've been out to the coast, stayed at this swanky manor. Went to Whitby and Scarborough just chilling in the sun and eating too much!




This week I'm building a new block down at Subvert and hopefully I'll get in the mood to go skating at some point as I haven't really been into it for the past few weeks.

Out and About



I've been up and down the country over the last week, putting some miles on the T4. War of the Thistles in Dumbarton and Aberdeen was a laugh with a good crew.

This weekend I was down coaching skateboarding for pro-gression.co.uk near Weymouth and took a minute to go and see the famous Portland Bill lighthouse!

Austria and Kenny Powers

I just had a week snowboarding out in Mayrhoffen with Churchill, Nowik and All Terrain Trev. Obviously with that crew you're going to have a pretty good laugh, in fact I pretty much spent the whole week pissing myself. Constant viewing/quoting of Eastbound and Down didn't rerally help matter. Everyone took some whopper slams but Trevs one below was the only one captured on film! ENJOY.

I had one day at home to wash some clothes etc and it was off to Blackpool for Easter Camp with Nev. It was a rad one as all the kids were cool although I think I've fucked my toe playing games of skate with them. Obviously I lost every single one but 5 kickflips in a day and victory on the 1/4 pipe just about saved me some face!



This weekend I'm catching up some work but also considering a cycling mission while the weather is so nice, you never know this might be our summer, I'd hate to miss it!
