The Drawing Boards recently spent some time in Amsterdam and came back with a ton of footage, some dope photos and a write up. Here it is in their words...
Jak Tonge: "When ever the Drawing Boards go on tour it becomes pretty raw, we never know where we will end up as people who we don't know usually hook us up.
Friends of friends to put trust in, always ends up with a win. Amsterdam wasn't the place at first but we found a new distribution to go slake Europe's thirst...
New riders joined the team, Ash Challis skates like a lean machine, but doesn't smoke. His talent is actually a joke.
You know what it's like, gunning it and skating till night, sleeping on floors, surrounded by swaying doors, fuck it get up early for the footage fight!"
Dean Robertson - blunt fakie
This was one of those impromptu stops, this dudes focus on a board is unreal; Dean jumped up and smashed this blunt fakie while the obstacle was swaying wildly. He cleaned up just in time for the Politie to politely insist we leave the busy intersection. He later showed up on the local news and Amsterdam got a quick teaser for the next DB vid.
Jak Tonge - backside disaster
Jak ate a three course meal of shit during the attempts, but the fantastic father from Fareham stepped back up to claim this delicious back D.
Dean Robertson - ollie
You wouldn't want to do this to many times...Dean was scoping it while a session was going down at the other end and, despite "not really feeling it today", went for the hammer.
Jak Tonge - back tail pop out to fakie
Jak worked for this one, one which I'm particuarly stoked on this as it was a real homage to tricks at Fairfield back in the day.
Louis Rose Antoine - mayday grind
Louis was a trooper on this trip; driving the whole time, bringing the teams style-point average up tenfold and racking up a ridiculous amount of footage. Here's an early morning mayday, after a cig and coffee of course...
Stephan Schuuring - front shuv
Our Dutch representative Stephan got on with everyone so easily, and it was rad to have him in a heated session too. This yoot has a lot of talent presented with a milky style, keep an eye out for him.
Adam McEvoy: Overall this was a ridiculous trip which resulted in ten hours worth of footage to sift through, which will go well towards the video we are working on. Everyone who came on the trip did us proud - Ash Challis, Louis Antoine, Jak Tonge, Adam Keates, Liam Teague and Dean Robertson. Jerry, Josh and myself manned it on the media side and big thanks to Matteous & his sidekick Shizzles for putting us up...keep it www.thedrawingboards.com
