South Africa - the story in pictures

Postby Trevenen » Fri Jan 14, 2011 10:44 am

Which are very few!

Mostly I have been taking video, which might not see the light of day for a while yet, the upload speed being what it is here. :)

OK so here's about the only passable shot of the spine at the Tokai ramp park, really nice ramps BTW but a rather big (hmm maybe only 5ft but still) spine. Spine's I'm not too familiar with (or keen on!) but am warming up to it, hopefully I'll get some tricks done on/over it in my last week here.

Last night I met Greg (wobbly) at the local mini (narrow but kinda fun) for a quick blast. Here are some pics from that:

Video will surface at some point, and there's some fairly nice stuff. It's all me, me, me though! :lol:

I know what you mean, my boy has no interest at all in anything with wheels, bikes, trikes , boards, all tried to no avail. Didn't even like my old beach buggy, all his mates wanted a ride, but he hated it. Ho hum. :(

More toys for me I suppose ! :)

Trevenen, that's great that you caught up with Wobbly and captured the scene. I would like to see the vid when you get a chance to upload it.

Where in SA are you there are a couple of old school SSP boyz living in Cape Town, Jono's got a mini ramp in his back garden, they've got a couple of concrete parks near by, an indoor park, and a secret, hush, hush back yard pool..
