The Premiere of The Learning Curve was on Sunday night down in Lower Marsh opposite the old Cide shop which still has its sign up despite it now being a newsagents and the shop being long gone. A reminder of the not so distant past and a really nice skateshop and gallery. The film was amazing and when it gets released it is a must have for anyone interested in London Skateboarding....spots all over central London some of which are familiar and others a revelation....London looks good through Phraezas lens and the skatingmatches the grandeur of the backdrop....check out the website for more from Phraeza and clips from the film.
  • Phraeza was there making sure everything ran smooth but he didn't need to worry as people turned out en-masse and the place was packed, all the films skaters got cheers before after and during their runs...yes runs, the sections were actual runs around London rather than a montage of tricks which shows something about the skaters themselves and the potential of the London spots...London looked a little claustrophobic at times, a combination of underground spots and nightime filming which captured the essence of street skating in the city perfectly.
    The premiere itself on a cold Sunday night was packed and a testament to Phraezas promotion....old and new faces of London skateboarding turned out and loved it, a breath of fresh air for London's weary streets....Pete Dosset was there too which was a reminder of a past a bit further away than Cide but unlike the sad demise of Cide Pete is still ripping stronger than in 89 by all accounts......

    Bill Wyman

    I've been delivering packages to some celebrities recently, my first job the other day was down to Chelsea to Bill Wyman, signed my big i went to Kensington Palace and got a police escort through the courtyards to the back door to hand over a package to Princess Michael....not a girls name and i didn't get to go inside anyway.....loads of Deer heads and antlers on the walls in the courtyard though......hunting stinks by the way.

    This is a slightly newer version of the Bilbao trip video, there now seems to be a ton of versions using chunks of the same stuff but thats what this blog is all about....repetition, this will never be complete but it will keep slightly changing each week or so especially with all of Andy's footage now on my computer and a load more photographs to drop in there........
