Last night was Fright Light Night at the spot but it’s summer and light till 10:00ish so it was basically just a Wednesday. Cronos & co are well underway for preparations for Saturdays jam building some sort of wooden street hippodrome mega casino. It’s a lot of work and for good reason. This thing is going to look insane when its on fire late Saturday night/ early Sunday morning and everyones doing stunts all over it.
The jam is apparently advertising free so don’t come and don’t bring fireworks.
Doctor Dan did the elusive BBQ rip rider last night which always looks cool. He did it loads of times and made it look mega easy every time. Check the writing on the bell as Dan rides over the door for an accurate caption of what’s going on.
Dream Bag (Bren) was being a softie and wouldn’t ride so I had to bribe him to do the over icepick back over. I paid him a can of Polish lager to take the photo (after the stunt/ photo was done). I then stood slightly too close and his front wheel zapped the plastic sleeve on the end of my lense just after the photo was taken. No damage to the lense and stoked on the photo so it’s all good.
Click the photo for full screen rather than tiny or too large.
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.
Lovely day chillin in the sun Saturday eating burgers and hanging out down The Spot.
The top of the wallride/ vert wall was trimmed down a foot or so a while ago and Max got all roid rage and boosted out of it. It’s still about ten foot tall, got a hole in and vert for ages which is pretty crust.
Here is Ben hanging out on a sunny winter mission in North London. This was the first time I went to this spot and despite the sun the whole thing was covered in a frost/ snow/ ice combo so not much more than this happened. Also we must of been out early to catch the light as he’s clearly tired and isn’t looking thrilled by the situation.
Summer is here. Can’t be a good weather chat.
New year new me. More fried chicken, less water and shorter shorts. As for Max same old shit, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
Some whopper tables on a tight little piece.
