A couple of weekends back the Repro X Three Amigos Cantelowes Jam saw Repro Print Division team up with Camden's long running Three Amigos Skate Shop for a day of screen printing and free beer-fuelled skate sessions at Cantelowes. To enhance the existing layout, the Repro beer can coping ramp was shunted against the back wall which raises the bowl platform from the rest of the park - creating a sketchy but rad death trap of a transfer gap for those of a more masochistic nature to hurl themselves over in the manner of airborne lemmings.
This is part of Repro's wider SOS screen printing tour, which will hit Norwich on Saturday the 16th of June - more details of that to come very soon.

Cantelowes hasn't seen a large scale jam since the glory days of the Quiksilver Bowlrider events which took place there for a couple of years, so it was rad to see Repro and Three Amigos sorting out a dose of Saturday hype for the locals and get a heavy session going on one of the first properly summery days of the year. Things kicked off with a bucket of PBR and ice at Three Amigos, along with a screen printing set up out front for which t-shirts and boards were raffled off and then printed in front of the winners.
The ramp was put in place, a few lip tricks were served to warm the session up and before long more than one person was eyeing up the hero gap from the shallow end of the bowl into the beer can coping. This proved to be a fairly tall order and, although a few of the locals battled it for awhile, Evan Binge's mach ten lien tail transfer which ended up as a tailblock slide and Felix Parker's axle-testing transfer to pivot fakie were the only two victors in that battle. Big up Repro and Three Amigos for getting this one done, support skater owned!
