I have the whole thing on VHS.
Supposedly the first ever UK skate video (in the sense of a VHS ‘video’)

I loved that little driveway and hubba. I’ve never liked comps so didn’t ever go to any of these, but I skated there a few times, great skatepark.

Fuck me… I was there that whole weekender and Cleveland Bod was kind of bummed at me not filming his switch 360 flip in his run, over the drive way, and there it is after all these years, wow! Such an amazing weekend. So many stories…
