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.

Paddy Maguire – Tree Ride Fakie.

On a cold winters night some time ago waiting on a young PLynn to return to his gaff and free us from the impending cold. Things soon heated up (a bit) for PMag when he began smashing his way up a nearby tree while I lay with my face on the pavement and got even colder. Miss those days.

James Ferris – Heelflip

With the police hot on our tail we split from the Titanic Quarter and made tracks towards the museum in hoping a peaceful skate would be on the cards as quitting time was soon rolling round. This was not the case. With a couple of security guards giving us an instant boot who looked no older than 16 we weren’t sure whether we should take them seriously but we soon caved under their cringey questions about skateboarding and left. Things began to pick when we soon stumbled upon some ramp building equipment but also included the discomfort of another prepubescent security guard by the name of Darn who blew our expectations on how much of an asshole he soon proved himself to be. Telling us we could do one thing and then going back on his word and saying another. It soon became clear to us there was no talking to this failed police man and the lads soon had enough and verbally let loose on him. Thankfully he soon cleared off as we pretended to do the whole pack up and leave routine. A peaceful skate was soon ours for the taking with all the boys getting there tricks over the Titanic ropes. As night fall fell we all couldn’t help hoping young Darns mouth would get the better of him later that night while out on the razz.
