Strasbourg Curb Edit

Tom and Ross came to Strasbourg for a short weekend. Armed with a spot list of some of the best curbs the city has to offer, we hit the streets and made this edit. Filmed by myself, Tom Smith and Ross Fairweather and featuring all three of us blading. Enjoy watching three old geezers doing soul grinds.


Session Report – Strasbourg #1

I took the afternoon off work on Wednesday, and by chance found a new spot on my way back home. I took some pictures on my phone and I posted the images in a group we have for local bladers. 30 minutes later and Salim and Jon arrived for an inpromptu session.

First priority – wax

Plenty of wax later and the ledges are starting to slide okay, the problem is there is a car parked in the most dangerous place possible next to the higher ledge. Anyway, sometimes you have to make do. After months of not skating I worked on my basics, Salim was doing grinds to wallrides and Jon was sessioning the top ledge and stacked a couple of very nice clips. The sun was shining and it was light until 6pm, a great sign that the Summer is coming!

Anyway it’s always good to get the first session of the year done (Even if it is in February). You know that great feeling you get after a good session? I am riding on that wave right now and ready for many more sessions, hopefully starting this Saturday. See you soon. NH.

I took this shot with the sun rising over an almost frozen canal on my bike ride to work. Absolutely no editing, just what you see is what you get. I don’t have a really fancy camera nor lenses, but I do what I can with what I
