Been thinking your day could be improved by a clip of raw Mwadlands footage featuring Lucien Clarke, Jamal Smith,Tom Penny and Geoff Rowley? Palace Skateboards have your back! Filmed presumably over the course of the week leading up to the temporary Peckham based indoor skatepark’s opening party, as well as during the hectic looking event, this is guaranteed to get you stoked.
Tom Penny and Geoff Rowley are rarely seen over on these shores and it’s sick to see them going in for this, with Rowley blasting massive backside flips over the big hip and Penny tweaking early grab methods over the driveway. Lucien is, of course, a more regular sight – but style never gets boring and we’re always stoked on seeing him popping every flip trick he does about four feet in to the air! His curtain closing section in Palasonic was apparently just the tip of the footage iceberg captured for that, so we’re sure that you will be seeing more of him this year before too long. Give Palace’s killer full length from last year ‘Palasonic‘ a watch to see just how much he was on one over the course of 2017 as well as the effort that has to go in to getting on the nominations board for Skater of the Year award.
The Palace-run skatepark is only open for another few weeks due to a six month lease, so you should probably make a point of checking it out while you still can! It’s free, there’s no scooters or r****rb*****s (you know who I mean, the wax-fetishising scum) to kill the hype and there always seems to be a heavy session going on down there, so it comes highly recommended.
