Leamington Spa Boys Club Ramps

Posted by Ripride Skateshop

Below is a view of the second Boys Club mini ramp in Leamington around Autumn of 1989. Before this it was a standard 5ft wooden mini ramp, then they were separated and eventually moved around the corner into a spine & hip complex & a vert ramp was added. I practically lived down here for the 3-4 years the Ramps were there & have some amazing memories of what went down: As well as having some amazing locals (Gaz Tomecek & John Lloyd ripped!) we had regular visits from the likes of Danny Wainwright & Tom Penny, demos included tours from Powell Peralta (Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, etc), Planet Earth/Life (Chris Miller, Sean Sheffey), Zorlac (Steve Schneer, Craig Johnson), as well as a couple amazing all day competitions....

Also check this pic of Tony Hawk skating the spine on a Bones Brigade tour in around '91...

...Tom Penny blasting the spine a year or so later!

...& this amazing video uploaded by our mate Trawler from the second comp back in '91!
