Some film and digital photos from a trip to Lille last month. It was a really fun trip and my first with my BMX. Managed to film a load of good, eat shit loads of Donner Kebabs and drink many warm French beers. We met some rad locals out there. They were patient with our attempts at learning French and showed us some savage spots. commen ta pel Souli Sousi.
Bike building for the sharpest dressed fan.
Amazing views in this small French city
All in a day, everyday, for 4 days non stop.
What a helmet
Baptiste getting whacked
She heard the Dream Boys were in town.
Some digital photos below of people actually riding as well. Most the good stuff happened on street and that all got filmed for the upcoming video because street’s much more cool than skateparks so limited photos.

Same hip, same trick, different person. Stevie havin’ it
Big cliff has been revamped and is still very big but kind of sloped and maybe more of a massive hill, naturally it is super hard and fun to ride as everything at The Spot is. Many a BMX stunt has been seen at the top near the bottom and on the floor just after. This one is a skate stunt though and a mighty fine one.
Got a new lense which is almost unbelievably better than my old standard lense. This is the first proper photo I have taken with it and also the first skating photo I have taken. Skating does look pretty.
Got two rolls of film developed the other day. One was from the Philippines (in the post below) the other is some photos from London, mainly around the Brixton area. I quiet like the contrast between the two sets of images.
Went back to Eastbourne to ride, I showed ken and Dan Devils Backbone which made a nice change from the usual London Eyesore’s. Here is Kenny stood on the top of it. I always forget how much of a treat this place is.
Metal pegs (plastic pegs and freecosters) put on a street jam. Loads of people turned up and mobbed the streets which is always fun. Everyone had a laugh, did a few tricks and loads of heckling. Managed to get some photos before the drunken heckling got too fun and took over.
Covered from all angles. Metal Pegger with potentially trick of the day?
