As some of you may know, Ayumi Watanbe, one of our international authors from Japan has very recently moved to London!
I went to meet her Saturday 19th of March and took along Charlotte Thatcher & Wings Chan for a session at Mile End & Bay 66. Ayumi brought her friends Raina and Taeko with her too, making Charlotte & I the ethnic minority!
Despite delayed tube trouble, a bit of a language barrier and a really crowded skate park, we had a really rad day in the sun… it was definitely the hottest day of the year so far!
Everyone took their fair share of slams that day, but by far the worst fall has to go to Wings as she tried a Fakie Smith on the Bay66 mini ramp, smacking her head and passing out for a few minutes and talking nonsense for a while after!
The day finished off with some beer and origami from Ayumi, good times..
