Pissing In The Kids Pool

In the toddler pool the mini ramp was also being destroyed, after Questions crazy wall running antics it was 17 year old Craig Coombs that took the bacon home.В  Blunt flips with a little shifty in there was just a warm up to bringing out some hammers.

Not to be outdone, Mikey Joyce was nailing some huge grabs off the mini extension – boneless, tuck-knee’s and a mind-blowing kickflip stalefish! (see pic on next page)

This kid was showing some real wizardly mini skills here, and for a kid of 17 he had some sick steeze and is defo one to watch for the future. Coombs and Adam Keys were getting seriously tech with Craig nailing an unbelievable fakie 360 shuv, switchblunt nollie backside flip to fakie (see pic opposite) – I shit you not, the place went fucking mental!

As it came to the end of the night, the last 10 minute call was made on the Tannoy and everyone seemed to step it up to make that final trick.В  None more so that Joe Habgood.В  Joe had spent all night attempting what seemed to be an impossible gap up the bank and onto the diving board.В  I mean seriously, if you had seen this thing you would not believe it, easily 10ft in length between the bank and the diving board (which was about 5 ft off the ground).

So after stalling the tombstone he got the speed to drive back down the pool at 100 mph and just before the lights went out he landed his trick, to be greeted with the loudest cheer that was heard all night.  Seriously Joe…….. Fair play, you need to be one crazy fucked up gnarly mosher to even attempt this!!

At exactly the same time at the miniramp, Keys lands an absolute hammer – a bigspin flip backtail revert – just as the lights were switched off to draw a close to an unbelievable nights skating.

After that, there was not much more to happen.  I mean what could follow this…… apart from finishing off the free beer and pizza kindly donated by the great guys at Nike.

If this place was a permanent feature, the potential for international competitions (like the PPP!) would be huge! A facility like this in this Country would do enormous amounts of good and put us firmly on the world circuits – can you imagine the Dagenham Bowl-A-Rama on the Vans fixture list? I bloody can.

Just do it?В  Well after that session it was a case of JUST DONE IT!!
