Moving house

After 5 years at a location, we found a new home. At our new home we can access our ramps, boards and stuff 24 hours a day. Moving a 20ft shipping container full of ramps is cool.

Container carrier pulls in

JF connects the chains

Dead lift

New home

Face lift for the Hooked house

JF joins in with painting

The ramps lurk inside

It went dark, had to put the car lights on

Paint splats on the antique Blueprint hoody

Finished... crip

Latest lurkings

Filming for the video still, went on a mission to get some interesting footage

We had a mess around on this bank

Saw some epic graffiti on a builders van

Worked out some tricks to film


Then went to a park, Kearney put down some line smiths

Kearney shows Mark Roe his new Hooked tee

Then we checked out some marble / granite blocks

A smooth slide, Kearney warms up

But they are a bit haggard to grind

People love drawing willies for some reason

Just a bit too haggard

Ant Roe skated

Just as we were about to leave, Kearney found a gap

It was a good size...

Street spots + a bit of park = a good day's work

Derby Skatepark update

With just over a month until the finish date, the park is looking better by the day.

The initial view from the pavement shows some rails, the polejam and even the hip

Intro quarter with the driveway rail

The earthquake gap is taking shape with the bank next to it

The block is added to the top area

Rooftop shape grind box looks good

First glance of the hubba

Overall view

Hubba... who's going to grind up it?

The block at the side of the bowl looks epic

The bowl in it's glory, the base is added

From the other side look back over at the hubba

And the open end of the bowl

Hubba, looks like a great angle


It's getting close to completion, but if you see anyone climbing the fence to ride it please discourage them as it's potentially dangerous and also could wreck parts of the construction that may not be able to be replaced due to £££. Look after the park!

Can't wait until open day!
