Predictably Perfect Prague
Due to exams and laziness I haven't written anything on here for ages, however this is not to say we haven't been skating. Me and Luc got home on Wednesday the 24th from a week in Prague
. We are currently in the process of making a montage
and an article
type thing which will end up on here eventually. In the mean time here are some non-skating photos
from the trip:
Stalin square after the regular but brief downpours
Luc's typical items each day inc. pepper spray and DIY belt + baseplate whip/mace
The view from Stalin Square at night
SOUVENIRS from the trip. hashish? free lube?
We went on a spot finding a mission and came up trumps! We found 2 warehouses which both need a lot of work but are amazing. Here is a photo from the worse of the 2:
More footage and photos to come hopefully.
Sunny Saturday Special
86 tries, level 8 sunburn and level 6 exhaustion yielded this lovely photo of a naff trick:
This, on the other hand took a cack handed amateur 1 try and little effort or physical pain. Although it involved being reprimanded by the city police 3 times. And told that taking photos.. other than point and shoot are illegal in the city without prior permission. So it turns out all terrorists like to use some off camera flashes and get a nice framed, composed shot... yeah right; you fucknut idiot.
I carelessly went to Morocco over Easter and Luc went to Canada to slide down hills on extended feet. So Andy was left in England to ponce around in women's clothes. In other words there hasn't been much skateboarding for a while. Until last Saturday in the distinctly summery weather Luc drove us to a few different 'spots' in St. Albans. Here's a sequence:

Long time. No blog....What?
I've been really busy trying not to get expelled from school so I haven't put much up for a while. Today we went to a cool bank spot and did some stuff but didn't get any hard evidence. *Checks ebay for cameras* Last night Luc ollied over a fence while i lay on the floor breaking my neck against a bin attempting to take a photo. I'll put that on later. For the moment here is a picture from 2 weeks ago of me doing a Backside Nollie on a 'bank' at Tower Hill. Click it to make it look good.
A huge skinny dog belonging to a peculiarly tall man contributed to making today one of the best skates this year. Although Andy wasn't there and it rained it was fun(ny) and Luc took some sick photos. Click them to see the proper quality ones:
