So last week it was finally a bit warmer which as usual meant I went skating with Will.
I met newly sponsored Native Skate Store rider William at the Cluny as apparently he’d found some ‘amazing’ new spots. This got me very excited however as usual I was bitterly bitterly disappointed. The first one was a building which was open and the second was wet. Will claimed the last spot was a class natural fun box. He’s wrong. He did a ollie which you see below, he wanted to do a better stunt but we decided the only way to make it look good would be to come back and film it at night with his trousers rolled up and wearing a 3/4 baseball tee.
We then hit up a gap which some people might remember from the ‘Say please and thank you’ trailers. Will was still distraught that his footage was never released so he wacked out a classic bs heel to hold back the tears.
After strolling back to town we hit up the chinese bakery for some sustenance, when departing Will made the claim that everyone working in there were like Pokemon’s. He claims this is because they ask you lots of questions like the people in the shops in the Pokemon game and not because he’s a massive racist.
We then hit up this tasty ledge in Fenham, if I was a good filmer I would always have wax but because I’m not I didn’t. Luckily Will was on point and he waxed it up real good.
He then proceeded to blast out this lovely tailslide, he was claiming flip out but we didn’t have a chance to see if he could because loads of charvers turned up.
After that I departed to go get some pizza. Earlier in the week me and Nicola had gone for a early valentines meal at Cafe 21. Below you can see that I took some low quality pictures of some high quality food.
For my starter I had an egg covered in bread crumbs on a bed of duck and mushrooms. I must say if I could could eggs to that perfection I would have them with every meal, unfortunately I can’t so I just have mayo.
For the main I went for the venison and spätzle, I didn’t take a pic of the spatzle but it was amazing as was the venison!
Puddings always end up looking aesthetically pleasing and I have to say mine was no exception. It was a pistachio and olive oil cake with rhubarb and icecream. It was a perfect blend of sweet and savory and it went down a treat! The cold, wet and windy walk home me and Nicola had to take after did not go down a treat however!
It seems like I’ve been doing this post in the wrong order but hey you get what you pay for. This is young William again and he’s performing a large ollie over this rail into a horrible wood based landing. Will is claiming boardslide pop over next time but we’ll see if that happens…
I’m off to Barca next week so hopefully my next post should be pretty good but who knows!
