    funny story, my buddy came there for a few weeks to skate. apparently the road he was on was a private road, and someone preceded to close the road off with the gate. came home with 7 screws and a titanium plate in his arm.

    i cant wait to come ride england!

    Ace, hope you find the guys, dunno if there'll be people skating. The hill you're looking for is 'lovers walk' I think on the park map...

    Rules for the spot:
    - No skating when there's prams on the hill
    - No skating if you see any cops, sit down and don't make eye contact hah
    - Be respectful
    - SHRED

    Hahaha, English to English translation!

    a Pram is like a push chair or 'buggy'(?). One of those devices with wheels you stick yer small children in to push them around town/park/whatever.

    lol ive been to greenwich park twice the past week. i found a little bowl in oxford about 3 miles from where im staying. its called botley bowl. its tiny and shallow but looks purty cool

    Edit: push race sounds fun, but i dont think my earthwing drifter and slide a's would hold up in that lol

I'm a longboarder from venezuela, I'm sponsored by original skateboards, I'm into carving/freeride and freestyle, I'll be moving to cambridge, England in 2 weeks, I'll be staying there for 6 months, I would be definitely skating around, I want to explore a lot! We should meet and skate around!

    Rickitan, I have seen your videos and they are superb.
    I am in Oxford and London in a few weeks and I was wondering if you would be willing to give Longboard Lessons.
