Footage from this summer’s Camp WESC online

When we were back at school and picked up American magazines to get skate news, we would always wonder why the UK never had any skate camps to offer and were always jealous that they existed elsewhere.

This summer, the first Camp WESC was launched down in Truro, Cornwall where Mark Baines, Tom Knox, Nicky Howells, Paul Regan, Danny Beall, Ash Hall, Benny Fairfax, Joleon Pressey, Danny Brady and Danielle Gallacher got together and hosted what looked like a great few days of skating for many. Watch 13 minutes of footage with all of the above and of course, all the skaters on the camp here.
