Gav Coughlan – Epilogue

Ciarán Hughes has clipped Gav’s section from his video Epilogue and given us a couple words about it. Watch the section below and then click HERE to watch the full video again!

“Gav is one of the best people to go skating and filming with. He might give out about Dublin not having many spots, but he’ll just go there and do the best tricks anyway. Filming with him can go one of two ways; you can either float around with him and randomly hit some spots or he can plan out a detailed timetable that makes the most of the light, the spots and weather conditions to maximise the probability of getting clips. Either way, he stacks.”

Gav Coughlan – Switch 360 Flip

On a recent long weekend trip to Dublin that resulted in a bunch of gypsies throwing 24 eggs at us at one spot then a telescopic baton being pulled on us by a junkie at another. Obviously in between these initial signs of insanity there was some serious hammers dropped. After being moved on by security from the ledge spot at UCD we crossed our fingers and tried our luck at the 7 which turned out to be an uninterrupted session, apart from the lads who seemed a bit too keen on telling us about their penny board skills.

Gav Coughlan – Frontside Ollie

After our long epic journey round the Westside of Ireland we decided to end it with our first skate park of the trip at the new location of the Wreckless skatepark in Gorey. The park was in the final process of being finished when we arrived so we stayed out of trouble and got this snap on the vert wall.

Wreckless Skatepark is now back open and the main bit of the skatepark, with the mini ramp soon to follow. Good work from Grant and the rest of the team getting it back open in time for the coming winter!

Gav Coughlan – Switch Crook

On one of many past vacations down to Dublin in search for hammers, we where sadly on this occasion brought down by the swift hand of johnny law at nearly every photo opportunity we encountered. With our hopes and our patience put to the limit we resorted to skating the street corners and the inevitability of pissing off the general public that comes along with it. We located ourselves at this rail closely placed next to a shops shutter which was thankfully closed so full advantage was taken.
