Park testing

We've been looking at different parks around England and skating them to get an idea of what makes great parks. This week we hit a small park in Chesterfield (
to test out the facilities.

A big driveway

Some super steep banks

An air freshener

A nice metal rail to rub the Hooked deck graphic all over

This place was obviously rode by kids on bike, bringing all the scum in from the field. It's littered with small stones to throw you off, plus a dusty topping to make sure you take something (the dirt) home. A quiet park, a good place to learn some rail basics.

The Hooked Crew couldn't pass up this sunny weather without a spot of filming.

Shoot to kill, grip to rip

We've been busy trying to squeeze in a bit of filming for the new video that's going to be shown on the Derby Big Screen in the Market Place. We're now into the editing stage, so keep your eyes peeled. The 30 second clip is likely to be on from around mid February.

We've also been busy gripping the brand new Hooked decks, so if you want to purchase one, email and start representing. The decks are £25 and come with free grip - 7.5, 7.6 and 7.75 sizes are available. Nice!
