Got Bricks

This weekend saw more building on the backyard mini. Dave came over and helped put the platform down and make a  tranny dry mix.So stoked on the progress and Dan Crilly put some flat bottom bricks down. Today I borrowed a local builders pick up and moved half a ton of used bricks. So the work shall continue untill the weather gets arctic.Very stoked indeed.

Van Life

Craig Odell at Mount Hawk.
Here are some more of Neils photos from our late summer trip to Cornwall in the Odell Brothers campervan. Checking out the mags are Mark Palmer aka Tom and Richie Follet both great men and inspiring skaters back in 1995. I hope you are well guys. I am in the foreground drinking and smoking which may account for my lack of memory about the trip. Thanks again to Craig for driving all those miles with Daz and for my first ever trip to playing place. Go there.

Deathraymini weekend bricklay

Get Into it get dirty

Get your mix on.

Get a lump hammer

Get the final brick in
Thanks to Nath for all his bricklaying skills/knowledge and for being in the pictures. This weekend saw Dave giving me a big hand in building up the back wall of the mini. A lot of what got done is thanks to Dave and his hardwork/tools/materials. We had a good time in the sunshine making skateboard dreams reality.I checked the little wall out today and it is setting well with the coping tied in nicely. Hopefully I can lay the platforms before the winter gets to harsh. So far this project is taking up a lot of time but the cost is low due to most the materials being recycled/reused.
Keep salveging.
