What started as a simple whats app message “Ross what you up to next weakend?” soon became one of the biggest sessions we have had all year. Arriving at the meeting place (Clifton skatepark) we couldn’t believe the amount of people that had turned up. Doing a quick head count there was about 24 guys ripping round the park, from Notts, Sheffield, Manchester all out in force. The TRB guys had turned up as well as Al Pall after driving 2 hours on his own just for the session. Thats dedication!
The First spot was the bent up rail round the back of Aldi with so many people around the session kicked off straight away
Everyone was landing tricks but the two bangers came from Matty Vella launching a 540 out of a back roy true soul and Carl Ambler lacing a dope 360 topsoul
After those were landed it was onto the next spot which was the short mellow yellow rails. At this spot there was pretty much a handrail skating clinic that went down there were so many tricks that got landed we wouldn’t be able to name them all
The night was drawing in with winter defiantly knocking at the door we only had time for one more spot after this, after a two fence climb we found a nice down rail where the session carried on even though the autumn leaves made the floor rather slippery.
Thanks to everybody that showed up for the session and making it a great day out
And a Massive shout out to our good friend Ben Dennis for taking some quality pics all day (all of the above except the last screen shot from TP’s footage)
