Reminds me of how good that Leigh on sea bowl was, especially for its time. Must have been nigh on 20 years ago now.

Great pics!

Can't believe you skated Newlyn! Nice. Half expected to see myself in the background but that must have been one of the rare occasions I wasn't there. 8)

Pow! West Houghton ramp! Did it last long? I only skated it a couple of weekends - it's where we learned to slam properly!

loving the 'Electro Hippies' graffiti at Livi.

Only skate Leigh on Sea once, a shame. Had a quality night at the Pink Toothbrush in Rayleigh afterwards.

Nice pics.

I went to stone edge about 12 years ago - wasn't skating much at the time but as I was in Daytona beach thought it would be worth a look (it never gets out of your system!) Bloody lovely place, loved that resi/bowl they had. Is the park still open and skateable?

Yeah the parks still open, Egg, Clover and Peanut Bowl have gone :(
Nine Bowl is still there now with Poooooollll coping and it has what looks like a killer wooden bowl now where the vert ramp use to be.

Hey Woody, I remember the ramps and bits in the tennis courts at Westhoughton High school, Derbys, Dennis, Walker, Jay... there was a flagged bank in the big one with a yellow gas pipe at the top, used to be able to do boardslides on it believe it or not, aint got the balls these days :evil: didn't you start a wood collection from Westhoughton...that where the name Woody come from :lol: good times, used to love Southport snake run as well... :D
