Worth following them on Twitter if you don't already?

@MaverickSkate: Contrary to earlier posts, Mansell Homes have requested Duck Lane remains shut for a little longer. Please be patient http://t.co/3QPFtYVtV1

Hoping for a roll around here next week. I wish they hadn't put coping the whole way down and gone for more of a classic snake run tho.

Did anyone see the plans for the Newquay park? Looks bloody perfect

Had a quick skate there on Monday..........it isn't as I expected, the initial snake run bit is really tight to skate. I think I needed more time to get some better lines down. the third pocked is really hard to skate through but I reckon would be acievable if Id stayed longer.

Great fun tho

It's the pocket just above the bottom dudes head in the picture. The one before it and that one don't flow together as the second runs half way through the third. It is doable but its bloody hard going. The natural line is air the hip instead which frontside is scary for me

didn't know you were around bournemouth, i've been hitting parks in the area all week... done duck lane twice now, i'd love to go down when it's empty and figure out the deep end, best i've done so far is launch my board onto the deck when i spotted some kid running around near the bottom :shock:

used to be, now i'm mostly in cumbria. there are so many options for skating within a short drive here, i've been hitting at least a couple different spots a day while i've been down.

i'll likely be headed back up north tomorrow unless someone spontaneously decides they want to employ me down here. no luck so far though :roll:
