Well it was a few months back now and ive been having technical problems so let me off! any way at the beginnig of this so called British Summer the Director (olly Howe) organised a trip to Mallorca to see if we could get some footage for the civicdaze video!

There was plenty of space in the apprtmen tfor a crew of ten plus people :s
Its been a while due to weather conditions and other commitments but on this cold day in November a small bunch of the Civicdaze crew went out filming around Plymouth. Eager to make up for lost/gained time!
After getting kicked off theatre royal by a silver medal snowboarding olympian policeman(apparently!) Luke got things started with this rad hardflip!
We then headed to the uni! Not much skateboarding happened! Alot of talking and delegating where to go did though.
The Ivybridge element was out in force. Heres Baby Ivy, Grandad Ivy and Papa Ivy

With the deadline for Civcdaze (a Plymouth skateboarding video by Olly Howe) looming derek went to work on the PHS rail

Dan (Wakeham) quickly got his skills out busting out the awesome crowd pleasing backflip!
After the session finished we were ready to go home
But as we headed to Warren house where the car was parked some...
After the conditions not being right at the beach we hiked round the coastal path in hope we would find a good spot to fish from.
