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...
