Thankfully mini ramps have been popping up in gardens and barns all over the UK this year. Some are now sitting there covered with tarpaulins as the winter does its best to halt play, others have been built and housed for all year shredding and these are the ramps that will be in high demand over the coming months as the wet weather takes a foothold in our daily lives.
The hard work is finding them, making that relationship with the owners and respecting the labour that has gone into the end product but if you do find yourself skating that ramp the hardest part is keeping the secret.
Last Sunday we were invited to skate a private mini ramp near to London so our advocates hit the road to discover the gem that was rumoured to be lurking in the fields out there. This video shot by Alan Christensen features Mark Brewster, AC, Jamie Harrison a bottle of plonk and some basketball skills from their debut private session. Who knows, maybe if we keep the secret we will be invited again.
