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.

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
