Last few Days of filming

The last couple of days have seen Helena blitzing various spots around London. Friday started with filming at Victoria Park in Hackney - the place with the best slides in the world! From there it was to Wood Green with it's slightly bizarre half park set up, finishing up at Alley Palley with a couple of 5-0's.

Saturday, Lucy Adams joined the South London street spot tour. Although her and Jenna we're so busy nattering it took them 20 mins to realise they were going past Earl's Court (west London) but meant to be meeting Helena in Greenwich (south east London). The first spot, when they eventually got there, named the 'cheese' spot turned out to be a bust with a man coming out and asking Lucy what she would do if she hit a car with her board, her reply being "run very fast," to which he wasn't very amused! From there they headed to Deptford, Friendly Street to a great little plaza. Some really sick tricks went down until Lucy had a freak accident and her vain almost popped out of her leg. When Jenna tried to get ice from the shop across the road, the crazy man got out a knife and started chipping out blocks from his freezer, to which she assured him Sweetcorn would be just fine.

Sue Hazel submits Southsea and more

Sue Hazel has very kindly handed over the precious cine films of her skating for the forthcoming 'As If, And What' film.

Obviously not wanting some sort of hash up George Lucas style remastering job done on it, a brilliant firm in Three Bridges is going to transfer it over to digital. The footage which spans over 3 decades includes vert skating on the infamous Southsea Ramp.

Rogue on the radio

On the 13th August, Georgi and Jenna were invited to do a slot on Live radio. Completely open to any music, the tunes spun by the "professional" djs included amongst others: Paramore, Enter Shitkari, The Cribs and of course MJ!!

They were there also to talk about the Rogue team but it all ended up with far too much giggling and incredibly bad Alan Patridge impersonations.

Keep an ear out for the copy of the broadcast which will be posted up here soon. Cheers to Diana Headly for organising the day

Croxley Skate Comp

Croxley Green Skate Park held it's third annual skate jam on Sat 22nd August. In recent months the park has been overrun with BMXers and it was decided to try and reclaim back the park for skaters,bladers and scooterers for the day.

Guys from LoveNskate and Rogue had been lined up to do a demo for the excited kids, although at the last minute some of the Rogue team pulled out due to skater time keeping. So Georgi represented for the team and she did it very well, even bagging herself 1st place in the girls comp...ok admittedly she was the only one to enter in the division but gave an impressive perormance of tricks including a kickflip transfer from quatre to flat bank.

With four Rogue decks and a bunch of Vans goodies prizes were a plenty. Well done Cat Baldwin for organising the comp, roll on next year

The Spinal Tap effect

We received a mail to say that the Pink Sessions - snowboard evenings for girls - were organising a minramp jam at the SnoZone.

Lucy, Dani, Jenna and Stef battled their way through 4 hour oil spialges, horrendous jams and paying twice for bus fares as an online booking facility hadn't worked! Mission!!

Anyone who has seen Spinal Tap will be able to appreciate the calamity that was to be. The day before the jam it was confirmed that the ramp would be a 5 can imagine the delight that was that on arrival the ramp turned out to be only 1 foot high!! top it off, it hadn't even been assembled!! 3 blokes were arguing over as to where to put the screws, which surely on a ramp of that extreme size shouldn't be difficult.

To save the day MK skate organiser Snusher sorted out free lift passes to the slopes for everyone who had travelled.

A bit of a wash out

The OSS Jam was unfortunately hit by the beautiful British summer weather, in the not so good way! Torrential rain forced organiser Stef Nurding to abandon the comp.

However not all was lost, the pub round the corner offered free pool, Monopoly and student priced drinks. It also gave mini ramp wonder Danielle Mellor a chance to show off her juggling skills, which were of course caught on camera for As If and What?...well if we can't film skating juggling obviously comes in a close second!

Full write up out shortly, but here's a short brief ditto of the days happenings:

Girls from Czech, Poland, New Zealand, France, Ireland, Spain and the UK travelled to the Pioneer Skate park in St Albans on June 20th for the 8th annual Girl Skate Jam. More than 40 riders turned up to skate the comp and catch up with friends. Hats have to go off to the 6 girls who came over from Spain and camped in the green next to Pioneer for two nights and nearly got abducted by a taxi driver!! It was good to see new faces coming through on the UK scene especially with ramp ripper Charlotte Thatcher, a Romford local.

Thanks to all the sponsors: Nikita, Les Ettes, Vans, Eastpak, Death, LoveNskate, Pro Tech and Rogue for all their help.

Also thanks to LoveNskate's Alex Barton, Les Ettes' Carmela Fleury and last minute stand in Rubicon Geoff for offering their judging skills, MC Joff, DJ's Ian and John, filmers Leigh Burton, James Strutt and Michael McInally and all the other Pioneer volunteers - Heidi Blum, Chloe Bennett, Lloyd, Jake Williams, Leah Smithson, Matt Talbot, and Di Headley, who really made the day!!

Grab the opportunity to tell your own story, what you love, what you do and what Nikita means to you. Any form of entry is acceptable – this will be a coffee table book to truly represent the Nikita girl, a book about her life and something hopefully all will want to be a part of".

Liverpool Ladies Day

Ladies Day at Rampworx. Things didn't didn't get off to the best start with the journey to Liverpool taking over 5 and a half hours, to the wrong destination and a slight panic that Jenna's laptop had been nicked. Things supposedly wouldn't be fun if they all ran smoothly?

The evening saw some of the UK's best riders including top blader Jenna Downing and England International footballer Sue Smith (Sadie was very excited!!) representing.

The idea was to hold an event where young girls could attend and feel comfortable to learn in an all female environment - although there seemed to be quite a large amount of guys still riding which was a little confusing. After a couple of media whore-esq interviews the team along with Lucy Adams did a demo for the onlooking hoards. Also at the park were vert ripper Rebecca Aimee Davies and Lois Pendlebury.

Later on that evening everyone headed over to Bumper Club in the city centre to watch a sneak preview of the forthcoming Rogue demo - out online this Friday - then danced til the wee early hours of 5am.

Winding up the filming with Giggsy

Filming is winding up for the Rogue promo, last day in Brum tomorrow. Today saw Jenna wing her way to the Manc-side to get some last bits of footage with Maria.'d think? Until...obviously being the cool cats they are, as a Mr Ryan Giggs nonchelantly walked past and stopped on the corner where they were filming Jenna of course wouldn't think to stand there with her mouth wide open staring - catching at least 2000 flies in the process. Then trying to silently mouth to Maria "it's Ryan Giggs. Ryan Giggs!!", subltey pointing behind her other hand while he looked on very confused - Maria in reply "Roy Keene wow yeh we should get him on film"

This of course went down very well and he expressed an immediate desire to be in the Rogue film which we had to let him down gently on. In sad reality he dived into the Laungerie shop opposite as quickly as possible to get away from the somewhat crazy people. Maria and Jenna sat outside waiting for their opportunity to ask him to be on film. After 20mins in the cold Maria plucked up the courage to go into the shop with Jenna now shamefacedly in tow.

Of course someone up above was having a good laugh as the split second they walked in, out walked Giggsy looking somewaht suspect at the camera Maria had ready in her hand. The two then had to spend some time in the shop to make their story look authentic.

Sadly Mr Giggs will not be on the forthcoming promo, but a lot of bloody good skating will be!
