Nottingham park trotting

So what went down in Nottingham today... some butt smashing, tré comping, fiver winning, footage catching, heel bruising lurking - that's what.

We went with team rollers Callum and Josh, and Mr Doughty joined us too.

Discrimination at the petrol station


Sooo, Southglade was first, nice and sunny too. Good news that the crater in the bowl had been stitched up. Could have done with a sweep out though, it was like WIlly Wonka's with all the wrappers down there.

One for the fans, this was a make - what's it called, pop out to crail tap or something?

Josh bones some air over skeletor's spine

Then it was too busy so we checked out Arnold. It was ace, but all the BMXers must have had the same idea. It's like Capture the flag in that bowl.

Callum got the first lipslide of the day

Josh crooks

Time machine

You've all see George Mitchell's wild illustrations on the Hooked Ramps by now. Very soon we'll see them in action - and we don't mean the next Hooked Roll With Us Session on 8th of May.

We're producing a timelapse of the grind box getting a make over.

Get ready for Grind Box 10 years younger...

Basic colouring

George goes berzerk


We can't wait to skate them, so get your trick list ready for the 8th of May... we want you to break them in!

Look after your ankles

We've all had a rolled ankle. Moral of the story is, look after it and stay off when you've hurt it.
Ended up in A+E two nights on the trot after doing a 10K race.

We're sticking to skateboarding

Fun night out

Nice one skeletor

Play safe

Snakes in Leicester

Rollersnakes has taken Ledges under their wing to provide products to Leicester's fair city.

Skate shops are precious things these days, so when times get tuff, the tuff have to get going. Ledges will remain in Tim's hands and to stay under the Snakes banner for the foreseeable future.

Good luck guys!

Notts Contemporary Gallery

Star City is the name of the exhib now on.
It's about the space race way back in the day.

Short hair, chiseled jaws, flares that whole communities could live under, hair that cultured some of the finest molds known to man(were talkin from experience here), space monkeys, Apollo, Sputnik. UFO's.

This is the most fun by far... venture into the gut of "Mother, Earth, Sister, Moon".

Mini Ramp, but they would'nt let us sk8 it?

70's- Kiss and make up with your friends girl, free love, free scrot diseases, bottled beer, 15 coffin nails a day, dope on a rope, lice, Old Spice... good times!
