House of Vans Tour

Screen Shot 2014-08-29 at 13.13.48In August I headed over to London to meet up with the Vans UK guys and also some of the European team including, Sami Luhtanen, Kalle Ohlson and Arthur Longo. We took them on a mini tour to show them where we rode in the domes and dryslope. We started at Milton Keynes for a fun shred there and then the next day went to a dryslope to show them what it was like to ride on, they got the hang of it pretty quick.Then we went into London, and got onto a boat for a tour around London on the Thames with everyone from Vans like Steve Van Doren, Geoff Rowley, Christian Hosoi and loads more every team was there! After that it was time for the opening of the House Of Vans which is a sick place underneath Waterloo station, with a skatepark, music and artwork.

It was a sick few days shredding and seeing London and the House Of Vans, check out the video !

King of the Kicker

rossendale-posterSunday we went over to Rossendale for the 1st time for the King of the Kicker Competition.

It was my first time at Rossendale so I didn’t really know what to expect. When I arrived I couldn’t see the freestyle park all I could see was a big dendex slope with a huge quarter pipe. The park was right at the top so you had to walk up about a hundred steps to get there. They have a new snowflex kicker that’s about 6ft maybe bigger which was is pretty nice, but the run in is a bit small and the landing is weird !

Anyway I managed to land all my qualifying runs really easy, even though it was dead slow and sticky but I still managed to get through to the the under 16’s final where I eventually finished 2nd behind my mate Jordan Gee who threw a sick front 5 on his last run. So I’m pretty stoked with that as I won 10 pounds and some clothes !
