With us unfortunately unable to attend Skateboard Scotland's long-running indoor skatepark two-pronged event War of the Thistles this year, due to the combined responsibility of near simultaneous child-production - we are happy to hand the coverage reigns over to Cameron Stuart.

You'll probably have seen his stuff before looking at this clip actually, especially since the screen-shot version of his footage of Charlie Myatt and Chris Baillie's near-death-experience-slam was all over Instagram yesterday.

With that said - mad big ups to you Cameron, stoked to get a banging clip covering the Aberdeen leg at Transition Extreme indoor skatepark up and out so quickly.

(Here's hoping you shot a Dumbarton Unit 23 one too!).

Go peep Cam's YouTube channel here, and follow him on Instagram @action.cam

Peep the above for heavy northern carnage featuring the Scottish brigade including the likes of Saul Crumlish, Colin Adam, Chris Baillie, Aaron Wilmott and many others, plus visiting English heads Eddie Belvedere, Jordan Sharkey and the incomparable Alex Hallford.

It's important also to highlight the fact here that Ali Menzies and the rest of Skateboard Scotland put this double-header on every year for no personal gain other than the love of skateboarding. You are shatter-proof rulers.

Finals results stood with Alex Hallford taking the Day 1 WOTT title, and returning victor Jordan Sharkey bagging up Day 2 at Unit 23 in Dumbarton for the second year in a row. Winners photo courtesy of @skateboardscotland

There is little more than needs to be said really, other than that we hope somebody managed to capture a highlights clip from Day 2 at Unit 23 and that you probably ought to have a search around the #warofthethistles and/or #WOTT tags on Instagram for more smart phone action from this brilliant independent event.

Big up Scottish skateboarding!
