LONDON

London kicked off with a flight from Newcastle to Stansted. We dicovered, not quicky, but after queuing for a while, that you just could not get a deck or skateboard through hand luggage. No skateboards allowed, we were then faced with a run around working out how we could put them together without being charged £20 each. With a plane leaving soon and gave up his shoes laces. One for the team...
On arrival we were greeted by Mellon, he had a big weekend planned for us. Including a McDonalds straight away and straight out for a nights skate around London town...
A bus ride into town, to the left is London local Nick, he enjoys taking the odd slam now and then. Out of shot is the one and only James Rooney.
The man himself, first spot got jumping off shit...
CREW SHOT #1Then it was down to the river...To South Bank at 3 am.
The spot was full of hippy students having a party, everywhere in central London empty, apart from South Bank.Mellon was over them completely.After a long skate here, and trying to get some footage and the homies were getting tired. Nick snapped a board, yet ended up finding another lying on the floor seconds later...
It was now time to hit the bus back to Mellon to our new bed for the weekend.We woke up to the hottest sunniest morning.Wake up Mellon, it is time for the session.First spot. Wall ride.Next spot, Kennington Bowl. A shredder showed up and couldn't give a shit about any lips at the end of the transitions and tailslid the quarter.
CREW SHOT #2
Joe hit up his staple trick, the backside nollie flipNext spot, some blocks in Elephant and Castle.Then to this tastey steep bank/hip.
Mellon. The famous back ollie.
Joe then came out with 2 sick tricks, backside flip...
and his not so well know dunking skills. Believe.
CREW SHOT ENDER.
This day was then followed by a wild night where we some how ended up in the same club as Lev from Palace, Ollie Todd, Benny Fairfax and Nick Jensen, oh what a night it was, then a sunny morning wonder aroud the city and a Megabus trip home. Thanks to Mellon and his flat mates for the place to stay and all his homies for the great company and great weekend.
