Gareth, great to know you're back on your board again, hope all heals up well and you're pain-free super-quick. Hopefully see you next time

Bazza and Adrian, will be ace to see you, hope things shine in your favour for a session. ..-

Put skate stuff in car. Tbh last season didn't enjoy much as didn't really know any of the people bar two... Which made it a bit uninspiring but if you and bazza turn up in more likely to make it

Hi me and another guy from berkshire are planning on going tomorrow it will be the first time for me so looking forward to meeting some fellow MAS boys. I'll be the one with the red dog town deck ( all the gear no idea) going nowhere near the coping . Please come and say hi and offer any advice.
See you tomorrow

Look forward to seeing you tonight Adrian. OJ's on 215's???? :shock: Excellent!

Bazza, come on! Hope you can make it.

Steve, see you there, will keep a look out for you. Will most likely be bowl side, SMA deck with a stripe in the grip.

Cheers all, see you later (AW)

Yep on 215's... Does require more effort but is fun. Steve.. I'll be lucky to get near bowl coping too, but it's fun anyway.

Gutted.... Not gonna make it tonight. Loaded up the car and was gonna get there nice and early as got a bit of mojo back after a good long skate at Adrenaline Alley the other day.
Then I get a call at 4pm from one of my 'naughty girls', just got in from the local police station....... I don't get paid enough to miss skating!!!!! :-(

Sorry bazza but it was a top evening. Quiet and good vibe. Very sociable. Nice to see mark after such a long time. Good to meet new boy Steve and brim was in the zone. Lots familiar faces there and all pleasant and encouraging.. Even the beer and bbq were good... Looking forward to getting back there. Luvin the mini and the bowl.. And didn't slam.. :-)

Aaaaahhh that was a great night

I was a bit worried after seeing the refurb work going on when we got there but it turned out to be ok. Not a huge turnout which meant i got some quality time in on both the bowl AND miniramp again

I had full pads & lid on most of the time and it definitely made a difference to my confidence, i seemed to be bombing it round the bowl faster than ever before after seeing that kid attempting head-high airs out of the deep end and trying to copy his line

i need a few more nights like that to get some real momentum to my bowl progress, found the line to get onto the coping at the kink in the middle but didnt quite manage it enough to get comfortable with it

bring on the next one, should be some new terrain to skate by then i presume??

Hoping to make it along just the missus is flying to Poland on Sunday with work and I'm already out tonight and Wednesday.


Plus she already knows I'm skating all day and evening Sunday in her absence!

may be pushing it but got to give it a go :)

Another miss for me I am afraid, life and work keeps getting in the way and always seems to fuck me up on Bay night!
Had an hours session at lunchtime today though at Harold Hill (perks of working a 30 second roll from the park) and been doing a lot of cruising and longboarding lately. Let's hope the weather holds, work dies down and I can see you all next month.
Busta you have probably doubled the collection since the last time I saw you, a ride on that Alva would be nice :-)
Actually I don't think we've met up since we slept together in Blackpool - oooh errrr missus! :-)

The Alva's a little wobbly Bazz, cos I still haven't stuck the new rubbers in the front
Gullwings yet but I will do before the next Bay.
My New bessie Mate in LA (a certain Mister Alva) sent me a new (Old) bit of grip for
it last week so I'm wrestling with peeling it back (fnnnar fnnar) and making the
top look like new too or leaving it as is and gazing at a piece of 40 year old
die cut grip tape for the next 50 years......
Have a great night doing what you're doing,I'll report back later.
And remember (Cue Humphrey Bogart) "we'll always have Blackpool kid"
