Forest Row

So we went to Forest Row to hook up with Sam. French got layback front rocks on it - which is hard seeing as the bowl goes to vert in 5ft. I played with my lens baby with varying degrees of success.

Guilt Free Wheels

Satori are just about to bring out the first ever environmentally sustainable range of wheels. The roots reggae radicals do this by utilising more than 50% bio oils and then offsetting the petrolium oil percentage. No news on performance but they say they skate the same as their regular wheels which can't be bad. Check their site for more details and photos.

Speaking of Satori check the video from the comp they organised at the classic San Francisco 3 up 3 down spot the other day. Adrian Williams rinses it...

New Monkey Say

Issue 17 of online magazine Monkey Say has just dropped and is full of great content including a write up on the Bowlarama comp, Biebel number ones, Demon Dam wild spot, Photographer Andy Peters and loads more.

Get reading.

Pilots for Life

This is an art show and is skate related, Oscar is the mega skinny, scruffy kidult who lurks at Tuesday skateshop in Camden all the time. This is his art show, with a friend. He's a really rad guy ...come along and support him. I imagine Gorm will be there, looking for beer and finding it.

In My Mind I'm Clapping - Chrissie Abbott

Ok, so this isn't skate related, but this is Chrissie Abbott's little art show...if you end up in East london, go check it, they have a cafe, not one that does greasy breakfasts alas, but at least you can get a cupper. She's gonna be famous! She's the nuts!

Document + 1/Slam Party

Another one of those parties tonight.


A little while back French got promoted from contributor to editor here at Tweaker Zine. We had a meeting in the plush board room, the one in Tweaker Towers with floor to ceiling windows with a stunning vista of Croydon. After some tea and biscuits (custard creams, nice, rich tea and pink wafers) French was unanimously voted in. As well as keys to the executive crapper and co-pilot seat in the Gorm-mobile French will also be posting away here on the Tweaker Blog. Get ready.
