Well it's been a long time since the last article - and unfortunately its been more work than play...

However, the 2011 Streetboard UK Open Championships video is here! A quickfire edit of footage taken at the 2010 Highland Streetboards UK Open Championships & Dimension Spot Battle...

I hurt myself during practise, but a great day was had by all the riders, and I'm looking forward to more events this summer :)

Snowboarder Matt Griffiths invited CJ and I, and his flatmate Pete and girlfriend Maddy, to join him for a day sunbathing on his boat around the back of Brownsea Island.

It was a lovely day, and the sun was very hot - but the water was still freezing, so the wakeboarding will have to wait until later in the year!

I have started using a skatge park near me which I had previously dismissed - it has lighting, and is under the cover of the flyover, so is protected from the rain. No photos yet, more on this in a future article...

Sonia and Wendy are *well* impressed by Dom's limbo skillz... ;)So as it's the start of summer again, we decided it's time to fire up the BBQ...

Taking the initiative, we had a party with a few of the usual culprits - all day drinking, out came the limbo pole, went downhill from there... ;)

While the weather has been good - there has been a lot of day-to-day stuff to attend to - so I'm hoping the weather holds up so the streetboarding can start again...

Got plans for a big streetboard weekend shortly - more details shortly...
