This Years Bristol Go Skateboarding day we once again teamed up with the good guys at DC and ascended on to our beloved Hotwells Pumptrack for an evening of carnage!

The pump track jam consisted of: ‘Fastest lap’, in ‘Regular + Switch’ and a ‘Winner Stays On Deathrace’ which we had to call when it got down to 2 people who seemed to have insane amounts of stamina and did 20 plus laps so they were crowned joint champions…God knows how they managed that many!

There was a ‘best trick’ on many different whoops and berms which saw many dope tricks go down!

Then we made the ‘MON Ramp’ which consisted of some drift wood lying around and as many mons as it took to hold it for each make shift obstacle it made.

Needless to say everyone went mental…just watch what Tidy Mike s VX captured on the video below!

Griff’s selection of fine snaps (when not flying around the track in switch) also caught what happened!
