Stay on target...


Looks like this'll be the final design. Added some hips, made the rail less formidable looking and added a jump box because the bmxers somehow couldn't do without one...

Big fan of this guy right now...




This week's winning numbers are:

So all my close friends know that I'm going to win the lottery one day. I've told them. Until then, this is a pretty good second best...

Looks like this is no longer a secret...

Real skateboarding


undeniable

Back to life, back to reality...


Thanks to Powley @ Vans for keeping me in shoes.

Now, with a lack of decent footage, you could argue that PJ had actually fallen off a little (maybe that's being kind). It's been a while since I've seen this kind of relishment of tricks from this guy. Really old skate shoes and brand new setups. Best combination ever...

(Apologies for the Berrics aspect of this post)

The High 5

Backing Todd's new deal and especially this guy:


This stuff gives me some faith that skateboarding has not been completely homogenized for the masses.

I come calling in my sunday best...

UPDATE: two week check up. Still can't feel my thumb


Stitches coming out, swelling gone down.


Pin still poking out sporadically. Bit annoying.


There's that pesky little bit of wire holding on the little bit of what was left of the end of the radius.




Stitches out and new cast on for another four weeks until all the ligaments have healed enough to start some proper rehab.

Bone Bomb

So it finally came. After many twists and sprains, bruises and lumps, cuts, grazes, SF street back burns, one-month-long migraines and unexplained incapacitations, I finally broke something outright. Shredding Stockwell with Seth and Jacob Kit, I bailed a 50-50 on one of the steep quarters, stepped off gracefully, only to find my board unexpectedly under my feet once again... I went down pretty quickly.



I'm so glad Seth was there to help out and get me to the hospital. I thought it was dislocated at first. We even considered trying to pull it back into place ourselves.



The guy at the Urgent Injury clinic at St Thomas' A&E was very helpful indeed but confirmed the worst. Distal radius off-ended with a pretty awkward dislocation. My fingers were going blue by this point as the nerves, ligaments and all the piping through my wrist were being strangled.



After a quick bit of surgery the next day I was feeling pretty whacked out but did manage to wake up to some pretty faces.



Here you can see where they performed the Carpal tunnel decompression (to release the nerves etc) and some other roadworks relating to ligaments. I just have one bit of wire holding on what was left of the end of the radius. I also have a good supply of pain killers which are helping out pretty well...

A Day And The Life

14 years and one day ago I was sitting in the pub with Paul Gonella contemplating making some kind of sponsor me tape. I guess I thought I was ripping back then. The actual original idea for making to tape came from my friend Ben who said I should try to get on flow for one of the Tum Yeto brands that Slam City were carrying at the time. I had nothing to lose really.

The next day (I'm pretty sure that's right) I arranged to meet Paul at Southsea skatepark nice and early and we were blessed with great weather to go film some stuff. The idea was to see how much footage we could gather in one day in one town. I think we got to about seven minutes of crap. Filler or killer, you'll have to decide for yourself. I think I invented a trick that day too.

We edited the whole thing together with two VCRs and were both pretty stoked with what we'd achieved in just one day.

Anyway, this was the start of it all.

Once again, I'd like to that Gonella for making this possible, my dad's old RAF trousers and Tum Yeto for inspiration...

Keep on truckin'.

I'm helping the Guildford guys put together plans for the skatepark there. Seems like a rad chance to build something interesting in the area. Feedback appreciated...


Not drawn to scale and some bits obviously don't flow, but it's a start.


The council have stipulated that there must be a path to the skatepark. Fine by me if we can adapt that slightly...


Random obstacle ideas. If you've ever skated anything like those transitioned flat bars let me know. I need to figure out how big/steep the ransition needs to be to make them work...

Heroin site is now back up and looking rad: Click it!

Quality and fit you can depend on...

Pin and Pulman. Truly brothers from different mothers. Mark Jackson, Chas Une, Pin and I got to the plaza at the crack of dawn to get some shredding done and some tricks logged for this little edit. There's more to come...

Here's the good quality version!
