Well, it was a few dates around the North of England for the Roll Kings team on their “Winter Splinter” tour this November. With a different skatepark each consecutive night it was a battle but most came out alive. I even got photos and they have finally been sorted, processed and uploaded. They are all in one gallery but they are spread over three nights, at The Asylum, Bones III and The Arc. All parks that you need to visit if you haven’t already.
So it took a while. Part of that was of course recovering from the weekend, but now I can face the light again I thought I’d better get the pictures done and out for all to see. As is standard for such an event there are more photos of the afterparty than there were from the skating itself, but who’s surprised?
If you want to see more of the skating that went down, check out the videos below:
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.
Just wait for that footage…
