Welcome Skate Store’s 7th Birthday Jam


The legends at Welcome Skate Store celebrated their 7th Birthday by hosting a jam at Hyde Park, Leeds which attracted tons of people from the surrounding areas of West Yorkshire. The day consisted of different jams on multiple obstacles around the park sponsored by the following hook ups: Polar: wallie event (wallie built by Martyn Hill), DC: The Tiago Lemos challenge on the high block, Thrasher: Sub-box jam and Vans: the hip jam.

Cash and prizes were thrown at people throughout the day, see below for some photos and an edit featuring: Dean Greensmith, Blinky, Victor Mputu, Mike Clarkson, George Smith, Joe Howard, Gareth Andrews, Will Sheerin, Ricky Davidson, James ‘Foz’ Foster, Liam Hobson, Neil Worthington and many more. The madness of the day was finished up with a boozy one at Headrow House. Heres to many more years of Welcome Skate Store.
