Phoenix Night Report

As promised, thanks to Jenna there is a great write up and photos from the first leg of the UK Ladies Skateboard Series in Manchester over on Cooler. Go check it out and read out about how eventual winner Lucy Adams threw down some tasty front boardslides and feeble 180’s on the rail – as well as a noseslide down the hubba and a frontside flip and switch 180 up the gap!! Can’t wait for the second event at XC skatepark and as mentioned yesterday, please try and get along to show your support.
