Dave Allen – Welcome to Skate Pharmacy

News from the Skate Pharmacy camp incoming as they welcome Dave Allen to the ranks, proper power moves! Watch the short clip of him on a vert charge and read some words from Powley below…

“Here at Skate Pharmacy we pride ourselves on being ‘down with the kids’. We had some focus group meetings with white boards and shit to analyse our potential sales audience. We now realise that vert skating is the next big thing and what we really need is a token bitter old foul mouthed vert skater for our team obviously.

Unfortunately Grosso wasn’t available so we got lumbered with Dave Allen……

The word ‘legend’ gets chucked about all too easily these days but when used in conjunction with Dave it’s fair enough in my opinion. Long before I knew him any further than a casual ‘alright’ on the platform here and there he was destroying ramps and himself and he’s never let off, he’s been with skating through the good times and the bad times. I witnessed it first hand all round the country at infamous spots like Goshen, Ewer Street, St Albans and Radlands, Dave doesn’t do ‘chilled session’. Now in his golden years, he’s been there done that and got the scars to show and the stories to tell and he’s still charging hard.

After a brief holiday in the States he’s back as a full time UK resident where he belongs!

Dave is a good mate, a great drinking partner and one of my all time favourite skateboarders so I’m stoked and proud to add him to the Skate Pharmacy family.
