Shredders Day out

Zee sent us in a wee article and some photos from the Shredders day oot:

 

THE ORIGINAL IDEA WAS THIS: EAST TO WEST, NORTH TO SOUTH, A COLLECTION OF OLD SKOOL SKATEBOARDERS THAT HAVE EITHER RE-FOUND THEIR LOVE OF THE FOUR WHEELED TOY OR ARE SIMPLY STOKED TO HAVE SKATERS OF THE SAME VINTAGE TO ENJOY A SESH WITH. BUT AS ALWAYS WITH SKATEBOARDING…THE RULES WERE SMASHED UP EARLY ON AND NOW IT’S JUST SHREDDERS, YOUNG AND ANCIENT, NEW SKOOL TO OLD SKOOL, NEAR AND FAR, ALL WE WANT TO DO IS SHREDD.
THERE HAVE ONLY BEEN 2 ‘OFFICIAL’ ‘SHREDDERS DAY OOT’’s BUT BOTH THE WEST AND THE EAST CREWS MEET UP FOR A WEEKLY SHREDD AT THEIR LOCAL PARKS. OUR FIRST SESSION WAS THE ‘MEET IN THE MIDDLE SKATE’ AS WEST MET EAST AT THE LEGENDARY LIVINGSTON SKATEPARK. FOR MOST OF THE OVER 30’S THIS WAS THE ONLY BIT OF CRETE THAT WAS AVAILABLE DURING THEIR YOUTH SO THE SESH WAS ON AS SOON AS WE ARRIVED. GREAT DAY, GREAT PARK, WE WISH THE BEAST A SPEEDY FACELIFT IN THE NEAR FUTURE!
OUR SECOND OUTING WAS GOING TO BE AN AMBITIOUS ‘FIFE TOUR’ BUT AS ALL THE SHREDD HEADS GATHERED AT SAUGHTON EDINBURGH, THE WEATHER PROMISED NOTHING BUT DOOM. NOT DETERED WE HEADED OVER THE BRIDGE IN CONVEY WITH THE NEW GLENROTHES IN OUR SIGHTS. THE WESTERNERS GOT TO WORK ON THE BOWL WHILST SOME ‘EDINBURGH LOCALS’ GOT TO WORK ON THE STREETY AREA, EVERYONE NAILING SOME FINE LINES. THE CREW THEN SPLIT UP AS THE WESTENERS WANTED TO TASTE MORE EAST CRETE SO THEY HEADED TO KINROSS AND BURTISLAND FOR MORE FUN. ANOTHER FINE DAY OOT WITH LOT’S OF SHREDDERS SHREDDING HARD.
OUR NEXT TRIP/GATHERING HAS TO OVER WEST SIDE, WE LOOK FORWARD TO HITTING UP WHATEVER DELIGHT YA’LL GOT…HAV IT SHREDDERS…
SO IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A SKATE, AND YER CREW IS WACK, MAYBE IF YOUR LUCKY…JUST MAYBE…YOU’LL GET INVITED TO THE SHREDDERS HQ, THEN YOU’LL GET A SHREDD ON WHENEVER…WHEREVER…
