dagenham Just on the outskirts of North East London lies Dagenham, supposedly the poorest part of London, and yet they have one of the best concrete skateparks in the South East. Blessed with this large concrete beauty sat on Castle Green in Dagenham. Designed by Simon Skipp it has everything from bowled out corners and pump bumps to double sets and ledges.

Getting There: Use postcode RM9 4TX (Barking RFC) in an online direction finder or map. Then look out for Castle Green which is a huge Recreation area in the shadow of the tower blocks pictured right.
In late August after hearing on the grape vine of this as yet un explored terrority, the Suffolk based Smash Skates boys headed down to ride the sort of park you donâ€™t find up in tractor country. Whilst there we encountered allsorts including kids on bikes riding round and round until it was tea time, guys on home made quad bikes which the wheels fall off of, and some really good skaters too.
PICNIC TABLE CONTEST After seeing the Aeon Footwear contest advertised on the back of the Summer '05 Puzzle DVD, I on the spur of the moment booked flights and a hotel for the weekend, fly out Friday morning, go to contest Saturday, come back Sunday evening and do plenty of tourist things in between like the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Trioumphe and all the others.

So off I went down to Heathrow on Friday morning, hopped on the plane and about two hours later I was collecting my baggage from Charles de Gaulle airport outside of Paris. Then got one of the scariest shuttle rides to my hotel, having avoided crashing twice, I got to my hotel just around the corner from the Eiffel tower, in one piece.

Then went for a wander around Paris going to the Palais de Tokyo where the contest was to get my bearings for the next day. There seems to be skaters there permanently. Including this weekend, Welsh skaters Dylan Hughes, Cashman and Chris Roberts. Who were there for the contest too.
So the day of the contest came things started at 2pm so went for lunch at little CafĂŠ near the Palais de Tokyo then went to the Arc de Trioumphe. Got to Palais de Tokyo which was already filling up with skaters, then the Aeon van with the two tables pulled up and they placed the tables on the first set and the double set.
This is when the action started as more and more people started turning up including all of the Aeon team and some of France's big names like Thibaud Fradin, Guillaume Dulont, Idriss Diop and many other great skaters. The skating was of an incredible level, the general line was trick on the first table with maybe flatland trick in the middle, then a trick down the second table which was on the double set. Whilst filmers from Puzzle followed the riders from table to table. After a while the Aeon photographer stood on one of the tables and called the name of a select few picked out by the judges, to ride on their own to narrow it down and make judging a bit easier. Then after some sick tricks and amazing lines had been thrown down, It was time to announce the winners. The clear winner was Alex Carolino who took the â‚Ź1500 away with several lines including Switch Kickflip BS 50 on first table, Switch Flip, then Half Cab Crook down the second table. Second was taken by ClichĂŠ rider Thibaud Fradin who's lines included Switch Nosegrind down the first table, and Pop Shove Crook down the second table. Nine Yards rider Idriss Diop came third with lines including Nosegrind Revert on first table, Switch Flip, then Crook second table.

Moments from the
Nollie Nose Wheelie Nollieflip out. At the most skated manny in the UK.
his guy came into my shop about two months ago - I kind of recognised him but couldn't say where from -Turned out it was Ben, star of many a Yarmouth vid - Yarmouth?? What the f--k was he doing out here?? He'd just started working as an electrician in Beccles and stumbled upon our shop, he'd always come to the shop in work clothes and we wondered whether he was a tracky-bots yarco and recently discovered he is just that!!

Haven't known him that long but he's real nice -my girlfriend tried to give him a deck at cost not that long ago but he wouldn't take it back with him until he'd seen me to confirm it, idiot, most skaters would have taken it and ran!! I've got him on the shop team for now but can't see it being long before he gets something much better for himself - its just a pleasure to help him out!! Good luck mate!
