Battle of Hastings 2007

In between flash floods and a summer that never was The 3rd annual Battle of Hastings somehow managed to land on a sunny day. The park was heaving with skaters from all over the shop and the park was taking a heavy battering.

The fancy dress effort was most spectacular from Robin Hood to Tarzan and far too many guys dressed as ladies for my liking.

60 people signed up to battle it out, Amir Williams taking the win in A group closely followed by Harry Potter from Crawley and in 3rd place was the Gypo army with a doubles run From Meanwhile Kev & Aaron Sweeney. B group was won by Toby Shaw and C group was headed up by Gamester.

Highlight of the day was the Vert wall best Trick. Aaron took the win with a lien disaster closely followed by Harry with a blunt taking a good ten slams before he rode it away clean. Others through down feeble grinds, back disasters, frontside airs and other radness.

Prizes were handed out as everybody headed off to the pub, a good day indeed.
