So, a few of us went out to some spots in North Wales to avoid the rain that was plaguing the Manchester area. Some brand new spots were visited, and some clips were bagged. Here’s a selection of the shots from the day.
As part of the release for Jenna’s pro model skate from Razors, a launch event was arranged to coincide with an inline only night at Rampworx. As is the way of things, restrictions of work and the time management skills of an average skater meant I couldn’t make it for long but I did shoot a few frames and you can check them out below:
Out and about grabbing a few clips, checking out some new spots after trying to get a look at Euxton skatepark through the swathes of scooters. We find ourselves in Chorley. Nothing much to account for the day apart from some fun times. That was until this tempting little beauty hit the radar. Kyle Murray stepped up and regardless of the proximity of the barriers and shopping trolley ranks, dropped this farside soul through the kink.
Today’s update to the (slow) series is Mark Lee skating in Manchester. As the light was fading, our guide JP brought us to this gem with enough time to grab a clip, and maybe a decent photo. I wasn’t expecting to get much of this as the rail is ridiculously long, and it turned out to be demonically fast. A few test tries later and Mark nails this slick farv all the way down. Not that he was bothered as you can tell from his face.

After taking quite a liking to the format of One Shot in Manc I have decided to occasionally get out occasionally and just pick the best shot to showcase. This time is was prompted by a visit by Dean Makin up to Stoke. Unfortunately on the day most of the spots we visited we unavailable but this one, though damp (and remaining so due to the Potteries Drizzle) was where we ended up. A derelict demolition site with only a couple of outbuildings remaining, accompanied by their rusty stair rails…
