I remember taking the trip down to that mini a couple of times, gnarly atmosphere under the Pier! Doubt I've got any pics to be honets. Most of mine are Crawley or Southsea from that time.

Can you post them in a seperate thread if possible?
Is this where I am supposed to write something witty?

Will see what I have. I found a load of grainy pics in the loft today that I took at the Bones Brigade tour at Southsea I think around 91 at a guess. Bucky, Hawk, Underhill, Manzouri etc. Will get them scanned in and post up when I get a chance. I was on the platform of the vert so they are not too bad.

RE-AL are still in business, just not in brighton. they have a shop in Eastbourne town centre, down near the old cinema opposite debenhams (or at least it was there the last time I went a few months ago). They have a website as well: http://www.realskatestore.com/

hi

West pier mini - now were talking ;0)

Spent days and days under there, most rickety mini you can imagine, but still packed and a great place to skate....

Until it caught fire and the fire brigade literally washed it into a small pile of splinters...

Good times

Cheers
Keen..
