Last week saw the North East skate scene assemble at 5 Bridges to compete for Netto Prawn and Gateshead Council's skate of the year. 

The dD logo was sprayed onto obstacles and hopefully drilled into your brains in order to sell a t shirt or 2. 

The dD staff were all called out for the event, pay and a half of course. Buster takes an opportunity for a swift snoot break.

Potentially the greatest games of S.K.A.T.E to ever occur at 5 Bridges. Numerous late flips and a high volume of switch tricks. 10/10.

Matthew Smith, White Sox representative was present. He landed a fantastic backwards spin to front angled grind on the lunch box; so a beer or two was the necessary celebration procedure.

Time is money. Mustard finished his filming duties and made a swift exit.
