The weather was fine, the juice was refreshing and the tricks were plentiful today; all in all it was a good saturday!
The day started off with Ben visiting my aboad to watch the new vans vid, after getting suitably stoked Ben decided it was time to finally skate his first handrail. Channelling the spirit of AVE he only went and noseslide the local 3 stair. Hesh til death!
Not content with his new Hesh persona we ventured to West Jesmond so he could keep things current with a long trendy boardslide around the corner. For extra Magenta points he took it to fakie, cheeky.
We were joined at West Jesmond by the Cougar, Cal and Darren. I told Darren I only thought he skated ramp so he proceeded to throw some street bangers.
First off was a 180 sw 5.0, a lovely trick if there ever was one.
And then within a few goes the tastiest of fs noseblunts was landed; he’s an ATV for sure!
Hopefully there’ll be good weather all weekend so I can do some more blogging!
SEE YA LATER!
Guess what, it’s been sunny so we’ve actually been skating!
Since it’s not too long til ‘Northern Souls’ is due to be released I’ve decided to amp up the filming a little. To start this flurry of filming was a litte trip to the Freeman Hospital banks. Anyone who’s skated these will know that they pretty much have no transition and are a complete bust but despite this Jack and Ben managed to few things.

Jack got this lovely sw rock fakie just as we were getting booted, sadly for him he broke his elbow at the next spot. Get well soon mate!
Ben was sticking this rock and roll but we got the boot before he rolled it clean, next time though!
Here’s one from a few weeks ago when Josh was up on a filming mission. A marble aided blunt mid block pop out and as you could imagine it was done with typical Josh flare.
This weekend thanks to some amazing directions from Sunderland Bmxer @unknownparasites I managed to skate two unreal new spots. The first was a multiple block manny pad spot and the second was a downhill street laden with numerous banks/hips of varying sizes. I didn’t get any pics from the manny spot as I was too busy filming but below you can see how could the bank spot was.

Til next time!
