Andrew Spratt – Wallride

With the early demise of my camera the day the Belfast lads landed in Barca after an anxiety ridden 19 hour train across the great continent of Europe gutted surely was an understatement of what I felt… Thankfully after a few messages I was soon back in action thanks to a Welsh connection. This was one from yesterday after our trails and bails through Fondo territory and a quick last stop before bouncing on the metro home. Safe travels boys! And happy 18th to Drew!

Dave Murphy – Board Stall Yank Out.

After we lost ourselves through what seemed an easy enough task with the no thinking required google maps at our side we came across this rail located outside a quaint cafe. Thankfully the customers outside didn’t seem too bothered.

Cian Eades – Switch Kickflip.

Right after blood was almost seemingly drawn from a game of skate with tricks only folk could blissfully pipe dream about accompanied with more style than Vogue magazine between Ireland and America this set was soon next in line for a barrage of tricks to be knocked out in only a matter of minutes. This being one of the many haymakers.

An open letter to Banbridge Skatepark

Cian Eades – Frontside Ollie.

We’ve all been to our fair share of D.I.Y’s before. Its not too often though you find one located in someones back garden. Residing on the grounds of the ever humble Dave Hurley and built by him it contains a handful of obstacles to keep you from ever venturing further than your front curb to keep you happy.
