My friend Ben is a crafty soul, who's pretty clever at making things - but a particular project he's been concentrating on at the moment is making boards. His store is called Bash's Speed Shop.
He hand crafts a mix between the humble skate board, and it's larger sibling the long board - these are awesome for doing a bit of cruising. If you're a fan of wheel and board based activities I strongly recommend you have a look at his page here. He's also got boards for sale on his Etsy page.
Anyway, a few weeks ago now, we caught up, had a little play round a velodrome, and at the old local Slades Skate Park and caught the last of some evening autumn sun.
