Euro 2002 Leftovers

While looking for old photos of The Arches and the Lanthorn i came across some Euro 2002 photos that i missed. Check out Mark 92, Robbie, Nick, and a few other bits and bobs from the trip.












I can't remember the name of the skater in the last two photos, but we met him in Gothenburg. He said he had access to an indoor skatepark, it was closed but he said he could get the keys. He skated off and came back five minutes later, ten minutes later we were skating this amazing indoor park on our own. I recall him saying he was on Minute Skateboards, (the short lived U.K company from a few years back) i did check when i got back but i can't remember his name. Cheers anyway dude, we had a rad time.

Back In The Day - Stuart Duncan

Stuart Duncan or Stuarty from Falkirk as he's more known is a bit of a beast on a board. Don't really see him out and about these days but i've spent a good few hours trying to beat him at s.k.a.t.e, needless to say i didn't win.
We never really planned to go out shooting, these photos were the result of having my camera handy when we were skating about. The first two photos were the first time i'd cross processed a film too. I got him to do the tricks while smoking, Drehobl style!

Salad Grind


Crook


360 Flip


Switch Noseslide


Smith Grind


360 Flip


The last trick was shot in Malaga, the result of a 'bro down' holiday in January 2006 that was spent mostly drinking and being cold. Winter sucks.

And The Slam Of The Year Award Goes To.......

Rab Milne.





Probably the worst slam i've ever seen, and the only time i've ever felt bad after shooting a photo.
The police had moved us on minutes before but that didn't put us off, we hid round the corner, i got my camera out and Rab went for it. He was on it first go and we all couldn't believe it, Benson, Keith Allan, Kerr, Tamo, and myself were all there to witness it. He gets up straight away, climbs to the top and get ready to drop in.
Boom! That didn't look good. I paused for a second, realized he wasn't moving, then ran over. Just as i approached the police that moved us away came past again, got out and called an ambulance.
He didn't really know what had happened, but handled it like a champ. After getting numerous 'telling offs' from the police, janitors, and local pub dwellers, Rab started apologizing for not landing it. Lying on the ground, head bleeding in a neck cast, apologizing, like i didn't feel bad enough.





He came into the shop the next day to say he was ok, to say he was super stoked that i shot the sequence, and that he wanted to try it again.



Slam of the year Rab.
