Niall "NZA" Neeson got guest editor in the new issue of this legendary American skate Mag and they ran 2 of my photos as part of it... G'wan NZA! * (Please note this is not the actual cover of this issue) - i just liked it so i stole it from the interweb. Big thank you goes out to Ciaran O'Connor(check his skills here: http://www.ciaranoconnor.com)for scanning this and sticking a copy of it in the post for me as for some reason I don't think you can get it here in Eire anymore? Anyway go pick up a real life version and read NZA's lyrical flow... He got WORDS.

I heard the sad news yesterday that an old friend from down under, Todd webster had passed away. He will be missed by all and remembered an amazing character who faced the world with open arms, a friendly smile and the nicest frontside ollie in the business... Thanks for looking after a young wide-eyed Dubliner lost in the lad of Oz. These photos of Todd are taken from the 2nd issue of Killing Time, a skate zine I made with my friend Bruce back in the days before blogs and mega-pretzel cameras. RIP mate. Thanks for all the inspiring times. (G.F.C)
Just before Bruce The Ox moved to Munich he finished building this amazing ramp is his back-garden. Jay Dords was so hyped to put the finishing touches to it. He drove those blue tiles from Derry to Kerry and managed to convince his car legs to let him ollie the channel with the ease of a young Alan Peterson...
