Wheels and Fins 2017 – Lewis Royden gallery
The weekend of the 9th and 10th September saw the Wheels and Fins festival return to the clifftops overlooking Joss Bay in Kent for a weekend of music, surfing, boxcar racing and the UK Mini Ramp Champs held on the King Ramps demo piece.
Skaters from all over the UK turned up to sesh, enjoy the mixed weather and generally have a good time at one of the more mellow events held over the Summer month.
Friday ought to see the official edit drop, along with a grip of photos shot by Jerome Loughran, (who also celebrated his 40th birthday over the weekend) but we’ve also got a rad little gallery of shots kindly provided byskater and photographer Lewis Royden who made the 800 mile round trip with fellow Northerners Jordan Sharkey and Dave Morgan.
Scroll down and enjoy the fruits of Lewis’s lens then prepare yourselves to make the trek down to Margate yourselves next year. Who knows, you might even meet Mike Vallely!
