Welcome aboard! If you want to try some vert I'd suggest you go up to Bristol and meet up with some of the guys at Motion, they have a 9 footer with a 9.5 transition, very close to vert, good to get started on. Then you could tag along with one or two of the guys who come to Mount Hawke indoor park in Cornwall from Barnstaple usually each weekend. 12 foot perfect vert ramp there. There is a vert jam this coming Sunday at Mount Hawke I bet you'd love to come and watch. ;)

Make sure you say Hi on Sunday then.
If I'm skating I wear a shiny red helmet with my name on it oo-er.
If not skating I'll probably be hanging around the vert ramp. MAS hoodie maybe.

I think skutter means by his avatar where it said 'I'm scared to post more' until he hit 4 posts, now it's changed to 'what mid life crisis'.

The text there is set by the number of posts you have. Check out other peoples. It will change as you get more posts. ;)
