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! Sun, Skatespots and a beach i hear?? I felt obliged to go! So yeh i did a bit of skating and drinking but i took a few pics too of the trip so here they are enjoy:

It started off with just ten people but over the last five years the skateboarding competition/fun jam me and my friend Lucas started has grown and grown! Due to the wet weathe rwe headed to Prime skatepark in Plymouth. Heres a few pictures from the 2013 Hallween hammers! thanks to all who came!

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 an eleven hour drive to Morzine for Stew and Liz's wedding it was straight on the party bus of tramp boarding, skateboarding and fun times. Here is a few of the pics i took from the trip. Unfortunately due to matters beyond my control there are not many of the actual wedding:) but there were plenty of other photographers on hand ! but in the meantime these are events that took place around the wedding:
Trampboarding is so fun and i got so many good pics i had to put them all in so bare with me as there will be pics of other stuff!
