The Forecast Scottish Summer Trip 2018 saw Tidy Mike and crew hitting the Livi Fun Day 2018 before getting stuck into a number of spots around Glasgow, with the camping skate mission requisite of a few swimming holes taken care of along the way. Livi Fun Day was a big one this year, returning with a bang after a few low key years as a heavy UK contingent from all over descended on the Concrete Dinosaur to chuck themselves at ancient concrete, enjoy the unusally pleasant weather and celebrate the life of Roxanne Graham.
The park has paid host to many a long session over the years and, for a proper idea of the park’s history since it’s completion in 1980, you can read our ‘Livingston: Carved in Stone‘ interview with Kenny Omond, the driving force behind getting the park built. You can also check out the Livi tag on our site for a hefty back catalogue of footage from the park.
Appearances from Sox, Ryan Price, James Griffiths, Frankie Darby, Will Stradling, Mark Burrows, Ben Broyd, Stu Graham, Colin Adam, Saul Crumlish and more mean that this would have been a solid edit if it was confined to Livingston’s ‘crete, but a full weekend mission means that the Transport Museum Glasgow (scroll down for more on that) and Glasgow’s Queens Park Vert Ramp also crop up, alongside a few appealingly crusty looking street nibbles. Press play, enjoy and check out Forecast’s site for a few photos from the weekend.
For more on the Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel in Glasgow and its newly built skate friendly surroundings, designed by Concreate Skateparks and already witness to some heavy sessions, go check out our recent interview with Toby Paterson on how it came about (coincidentally conducted, like this session, on the same weekend as Livi Fun Day.)
