Watergate the first comp in UK EVER! - LOCKED duplicate

Postby trawler » Sun Mar 06, 2011 6:56 pm

Yesterday was a good day.
I was tagged in these long lost photos from 1976 or 77.
Watergate Bay, Cornwall and the first ever skateboard contest in the UK.

Little Mark Lawer, a fourteen year old grommet, cap sleeved T-shirt and flares.
Scabbling around getting in the mix with all the top London kiddies like Henderson and Sablosky.
I always tell people I was there and now I have proof, it brought a tear to this old mans eye!
