Pirate Bowl

Went on a little trip to Hossegor a few weeks back. It's the second time I've been there. I found this gem the first time I was there, but didn't have my board. I was determined to skate it this time. I could only take hand luggage so customs was a little sketchy.

But I wasn't so lucky on the way back home. The lovely people at French customs weren't too happy with a skateboard on the plane.

At least they let me keep my bolts.

Pizza night at the badger set

Every Tuesday a few mates and I get together for pizza. We thought this week we'd mix it up, and work off the pizza.

This is Josh Oglive's pump track, built by hand in his garden. Well, his mother's (poor woman). The most fun I've had on a bike in a while . There were a few crashes, some mental lines, one or two odd bikes and the occasional mockery.  Roll on  Tuesday, might order a different pizza next week....

It's been going off this Easter. We've had a lot of sunshine and done a lot of riding.

The top gif is of me and the picture is our very own flow rider Jack Moore.

On Tuesday Tim blogged about some dude in little old Cardigan with a lovely Silass Baxter Neal board, that dude was our very own Davy Evans. He's back in the shire on his holidays, and is covering for Ed down the shop. Good to have you back mate. Fancy a skate tonight?
