yeah - I know what you mean about the bins - they are on the way, but nobody has big ones in stock - several weeks lead in time for them unfortunately, and normal sized ones fill up far too quick....

shouldn't be long...

The guys I was skating with are my local skate buddies from Retford. Ross (starting to become more regular on the Notts MAS sessions) isn't pro, just got the steez and was ripping it up yesterday. Rowan Murray was the young dude. He isn't pro, but is sponsored. He is starting to place consistently high in comps now - he is a rad skater.

Nice bowl anyway, I'll be back sharpish to work out the lines properly - . Next time I'll be there before the local bad boys have got over their crack hangovers though.The deep end has a pool type quality to it - quite a severe drop in and circular shaped, I got stuck carving backside round in circles a few times :lol:

We took a spin over to the little plaza in Rotherham too (Clifton park). That place was great - I love that taco shell and had great fun doing ollies down the stair set (all 2 steps :D ). I need to give this plaza action a bit more of my time I think but the bowl is still king of course.

Lunchtime session tomorrow for anyone interested. Probably be there from about half 12, for an hour or so...

Bins should arrive this week...

Tis a phone camera Phil, maybe that explains the weirdness of the pics LOL I would go there as part of a road trip, not the easiest to find, but I guess there's always Wakefield and Micklefield not too far so could do them all in the one day maybe.

This is a nice little park, should try to go again sometime, but unfortunately you need to go in numbers, it has a local feral kids/adults problem to deal with as you use it
