Cooler Mag Girls Session @ HTCOne Skatepark

Yesterday I headed down to the HTC One Skatepark at Selfridges for the 2nd Cooler Mag girls Session! It was rad to see the standard of Girls skating being so high. Josie Millard, 15 from Brighton kickflipped both sets of steps but one more for a photo caused a tail snappage of the cleanest kind. Bummer for Josie. Camilla Mullins slid the smoothest front boards down the rail whilst Dor Horvath got tech on a boardslide shuv out on same rail.

Highlight of the night was that Jenny Jones, the boss was in the house! Jenny hung around and created hype giving hints and tips and positivity to all the girls trying to get their moves!




















Cooler mag did a little write up here

And here you can see a clip of me taking a few hard slams trying to FS Flip the Road Gap :(

I custom made a Skateboard with David Simmons

Last year I started a project with David Simmons who offers a custom made skateboard making service in his workshop in Worthing, West Sussex.

I learned every step of the process from gluing to the shaping with the help of David! I then sent my board up to Lovenskate for screen printing and now I'm riding it!

Here is a clip I made of the process and some bonus skate footage at the end!



Here are some pics of the process...all taken by David Simmons...
