On saturday I went to the Deckades show in Bristol and saw the raddest collection of boards ever. I was so stoked, having recognised a lot of them from books and the net, it was awesome to see them for real. As you can see below, I took an awful lot of photos...and this isnt even half of them!
just an overview
some of the new, specially commissioned boards raising money for UNICEF
I remember seeing this one (middle) in a book and instantly loving it, I really like the deer. So stoked to see it 'in the flesh'
After the show I went to Bedminster skatepark which is a gnarly concrete park just over the Avon. The concrete there was so rough, the first thing i did was bail and slam my hand. Again. I have a permanent bruise/scar tissue lump there. I was told there was some sick bowls and a wicked snake run once, but some kids informed me they took that out years ago 'cos a kid got seriously injured there once. Despite this, it is still a rad place, even though there wasn't many skaters when I went, I was just chillin' with the kids! There were, however, a few graffiti artist doing there thing (shitloads of awesome graf in Bristol) but unfortunately, I took up all my memory space taking photos at Deckades!
Oh look! I just found a photo of part of Bedminster skatepark on the net, take a peek.
