In 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 !
Last week me and my dad went to London and watched the Vans Downtown Showdown and it was awesome the skating was insane so many good skaters, also there were some rad people there that I saw like Wee Man and Steve Van Doren the owner of Vans which was sick, check out the video highlights.
After that we drove to Tamworth and I went for a shred but it wasn’t that good because everything was sticky and not everything was put in straight but I still had a good time. The next morning I got a train to York and went and stayed with my friend Joe whilst I was there I saw all my mates which was cool, I then went and stayed at my uncles for a few days aswell thanks for looking after me and giving lifts to and from Cas 🙂 I went to Cas on Thursday and Friday, on Thursday I saw Keith Povah, Simon Foster and Big Charlie it was rad to shred with them all again I had so much fun they had a sick park out, side on gaspipe, Nike Stairset and then a donkey kink it was sick!
Then Friday it was the Whitelines rail jam (like the one we did at the boardtest but in the dome) and that was a sick, same park as Thursday but with the DC Jet Set after the Nike Stairset then a high box. They had loads of prizes and they had jams on the Nike Stairset and the DC Jet Set I got in the final for the Jet Set but I didn’t think that it was that good a feature, the best was the Nike stair set which I did Half-Cab 5-o, back noseslide pretzel and back one on. In the end I won Union bindings, 50 quid, Whitelines Subscription and Dragon goggles which is rad!!!
So back in Cornwall now went surfing Yesterday with Jamie Nicholls, Katie Ormerod, Sophie Nicholls and Mathias Weissenbacher which was good fun then did a spot of fishing (caught nothing as usual).
