A change to the organisation this year but a familiar feel to what is an established and friendly annual event at The House skatepark. As Noiya were not holding the reins this year it was picked up by Bobby Smith and the local crew of Forged From Steel. A wholly appropriate moniker for such a down to earth skate session and competition. With an impressive $950 in the prize pot and a load of extra goodies shared between the 2 classes and best trick, many turned up for the event but went that extra mile for the prizes.
So, here’s a few shots for you…
And I thought I’d grab a few clips at the end of the day and put them together too..
So, I finally got around to sorting through the photos from the Noiya Jam at The House Skatepark a few weeks back. I’m afraid I missed the Open comp almost entirely and arrived just in time for the Experts to start. As a result I don’t have too many shots. I hope you enjoy what I did manage to shoot though.

Having just witnessed the joy that is the Noiya Jam, one of the most friendly yet competitive events of the year, for the first time today, I have decided that I need to come back. Back next year for the 2015 jam. Back to skate and shoot some of the amazing street spots that Sheffield has around every corner and back to session this amazing box.
Much thanks as always to Tim Darker and the Noiya team, as well as the great staff at The House skate park for putting on this event for us. May it return year on year, and having seen the reception from the skaters from all over the country, the desire for it at least seems assured.
Now just watching the last of the skaters having a chill session before an evening out at DaDa to finish off the day. Back home tomorrow to work on the photos so keep an eye out for those.
So, the snow had finally (mostly) melted, not that we could tell as we drove over the Pennines to Sheffield. Surrounded by the pure white hills and clear lake water none of us could quite believe that spring had arrived and we were going to skate. The Steel City itself however was relatively warm and sunny and rammed full of skate spots. After the first few warm up spots, I grabbed some decent shots but then as the sun went down we hit our last spot of the day.
This is where Steve Swain decided to test out his new Kaltik Frames and flat setup on not only the kink rail, but this insane double set gap.
Just wait for that footage…
