Tom Skating New(ish) spot

Last week Man took Tom and myself to a spot he had seen just off the motorway. At the front was a pavement gap which looked great from above but on closer inspection the ground was extremely rough. Still possible though; after a couple of goes at it Paul hurt his heel, meanwhile Tom explored around the back of the school where he came across these banks. Heres a few clips of what we got done while we were there, had to leave after a while as Paul's dinner was getting served up half 8 on the dot! Enjoy..

Updates are going to start picking up alot from now on, I've began to edit the promo so im sure alot of forgotten clips will turn up, should have something new up every Monday if everything goes to plan.

Back in the Day


I can't actually remember when i shot this, it must've been 2002, thats when i shot a lot of stuff around Edinburgh.
I was scanning this in at the time and dropped the slide on the floor without noticing. It got caught under wheel of my computer chair and ripped a little. I thought it looked cool and as it was already ruined, i took a lighter to it.
I've always liked photos that are a little messed up, keeps it interesting.
