Wallride was nasty. That place looks like it would be so fun to skate.

i thought it would be too, but the flat part is sooooo wide you loose tones of speed and the entire thing needs a good sweep first, loads of little rocks and bit of glass and crap.

Thanks Ben. However, easier said than done unfortunately. Need to find myself something like a ditch and pretend I'm with good mates :)
