Video Part 1
Here we have the UK Independent boys tearing up Scotland from a recent trip.
Pick up a copy of Sidewalk issue 219 for full article coverage, but for the mean time, appreciate Alan Glass's first video instalment from the trip and a photo gallery courtesy of Chris Johnson. BOOM!
Part 2 has the box of toys meeting up with Mark Burrows and Adam Paris at North Berwick before heading back to East Kilbride for a demo session with Aaron Wilmot, Saul Crumlish and Kieran Menzies. Scotland needs more exposure!
Jed Cullen, Sam Pulley, Colin Adam, Joe Howard and Marc Churchill.
First up we hit the Mackey cover spot on our way into Liverpool. Yeah, it'd hammered it down earlier that morning.
This is either gonna feel amazing or terrible...
We arrived at New Bird as the sun broke through the threatening cloud banks. Pulley used the Daily Sport to make his life better... Again.
Director of the moving image and everyone's uncle for the weekend Mr. Alan Glass.
Couple more pages and she'll be reet.
Finally, dry enough for Sam to pop a floater over the hip just before the clouds unleashed themselves upon us and we hit the road to Blackpool for the demo.
Midway through our second day and the sun was out as we pulled into the Livi car-park.
Straight outta the car and onto the wall, Pulley tests his balance with a smith stall.
Joined by Benson and Colin Adam as the afternoon progressed, you could say the session heated up some what.
Pulley scraped metal against seasoned concrete.
Colin Adam is no stranger to the Livi halfpipe...
He knows all the lines, both in and out.
Nando's or a Chippy.
The afflicted (who could still skate).
The afflicted (who nearly snapped his foot off the previous evening and who could hardly walk let alone skate).
Pulley was well keen for the early morning session at North Berwick.
Anyone got a knife.
On time, every time.
Right, I suppose someone's gonna have to motivate you lot.
If the Burrows and Benson are seshin' you know you're gonna have to at least keep up.
Even this was a right off.
Please, just take my wallet.
The things that could have gone down. Oh well, to the pub and then demo.
Yes that is a indoor concrete fullpipe, your eyes do not deceive you.
