Gerard Keane – Ollie

Working on a project but this is a little throwaway taster for whats to come. On a walk so long that it started to resemble more of a charity event, except without the money, people cheering us on and getting the evils from almost everywhere we went. We found ourselves far from the comfort and frantic life style of the city centre and outside a student halls building. This is a one trick chance sort of spot but the security guard agreed if we asked the girl inside if it was okay to stay he would also let us. Obviously nothing about skateboarding was mentioned to the said girl as that would have resulted in our immediate down fall. Sadly moments later after getting some attempts in someone had radioed in and given us up. After an abysmal game of hide and seek between us and security we snuck in one last try and Gerry made it across safely much to the disappoint of the security guard.

Joshua Pearson – Kickflip to Flat

With many trying and many failing, successfully challenging this huge concrete drop to flat without the worry of impaling yourself on some cataract ridden scooter kid had put the idea off for most. Thankfully Josh gives little to no fucks about anything that could put his body in harms way. After an afternoon street skate Josh begged me to come to the park so we could finally shoot this photo. I don’t know why but for whatever reason best suited for him each try would consist of him pushing from one side of the park to the other at mac ten to come crashing and echoing of the bowl corners until eventually taking this kickflip to victory and a cheeky pipe.

Mark Lilley – Heelflip.

With our long awaited friend, the Sun, making a more than overdue visit we capitalised the situation with a wee road trip to the land that time seemingly forgot along the Irish border. I don’t know what we were hoping to find to be honest… a leprechaun, maybe a full pipe or some sort of misshapen roof that was screaming out for a trick. Instead this was all we could muster. After nearly loosing both his shoes in the ankle deep mud prior to climbing aboard this oddly located lorry cargo bed we soon played the less than fun game of waiting for the sun to come out again. Thankfully it did and I couldn’t be happier with our crappy trip to no mans land and all we got was this lousy photo.

Alfie Carleton – Beanplant

With the winter months still dragging in our footsteps the local trolls under the Bridge have been ever the more grateful for its concrete blanket that stretches out above their heads. With a rolled ankle and the ever growing knowledge of how cold it was I set my sights to the Red Devil “Alfie” to free me from this misery and return me to my joyous self with this photo.

Gav Coughlan – Frontside Nosegrab.

The rare occasion I decide to shot skating with film. Think I had the ISO set wrong for this entire roll, and the strap got caught on the lens in this shot, good times. But this one came out alright I guess.

Cian Eades – Hardflip

After many an hour bottle flipping, board flipping and truck snapping we made our way up to the ghost town that is Barcelona’s Olympic stadium to enjoy rip off food and drink prices at nearby stalls and to watch Cian chuck this down some extra long stairs.

Mini Brown – Frontside Wallride

The infamous Mini Brown trying to sneak a peak into a neighbouring garden with this frontside wallride while I narrowly avoided on coming traffic.

Gav Coughlan – Varial Heelflip.

A photo from some winters back of a nerve wrecking visit to a carpark in Dublin where some words where exchanged between us and security before Gav sailed this down the set. Check out Ciarans new edit to peep the footage.

Andrew Spratt – Frontside Flip.

Out of the ring and into the crowd with this number some weeks back on a bleak night at Titanic Quarter.
