2010 St.Patricks Weekend Jam

Thanks to all who showed up for this years Paddys weekend of madness, without you guys we couldn't have made it happen and a big thanks to all our sponsors .. Wreckless, Fix Bearings, Hedon Skate, Bhc and Tg4 and of course SofD.

This year we ran the competitions/jams over 3 days, Friday night was a late night park session for the over 18s, Saturday was the park comp, which consisted of a under 14 and over 14s comp and the best trick comps which had the cash prize. Little Jack Woodruffe from the Swords crew won the under 14s and also won the best trick for kids. Jay Gorman won the over 14s with a selection of high tech grinds on the coping and on the boxes.

The best trick comp for the older guys went amazingly with such a great session and atmosphere Joey Egan was doing huge flatspins over the quarter to quarter channel and huge rewind flatspins from the vert wall to the lower quarter on the right. Russell Dineen from Scotalnd busted out some tech hammers like cab up the quarter to zero spin fishy on one of the high girders to back into the quarter and some sick huge truespin wallrides over the grindbox.

Cammy from Scotland really skated very hard and was the first person ever to gap from the quarter on the street course over the barrier to soul on the wall next to the small mini ramp. Soon after, Albert gapped to back royale on the same wall then top acided it and topped it off with a fishy and tru mizou 360. SICK.

I could spend all day righting about the best trick comp and how great the standard of skating was and how unreal and lifting the atmosphere and vibe was, but I will try get to the point! Cammy destroyed the park doing stuff people had never done and skated so consistent. Somehow Cammy was building so much speed he was flatspinning gaps that people are happy just straight gapping and wallriding over the 14th foot wallride that most are happy to get somewhere near the top off, but what really took the title was when he launched out of the quarter and backsided on the girder about 10 foot up and then gapped into the flatbank. Congrats to Cammy on his victory in this years skatepark best trick comp.

That night Brother Ali played a gig in town, so a few of us went there, was a great night from what I remember! The Sunday was the Street competition myself and Lynch had picked out the spots and booked a 53 seater bus which brought the rollers from spot to spot.

We first went to Sandyford marble ledges, which are low long and perfect for a first spot as theres so many of them which allows everyone to skate without it getting to hectic.

We didn't stay to long there and moved on to the next spot which was only around the corner, a disaster ledge on the right with a kink at the end. At this spot tricks went down and a session was had by many, which was great to see.

Spot three was the infamous Stillorgan rails which are low and long, with mellow steps on one side and a bank on the other, we didnt stay to long here as the rail being long not alot of tricks went down.

Spot four the final stop was more of a hammer spot with two nice kinked rails, a big bank for launching from one level car park to the next and then two big step ass rails. Here it was easy to see who was taking the title, Johnny Mulligan topping of the session with a 450 royale on the rugged steep rail. Congrats to Johnny for taking another street comp title here in Ireland (now everyone know where Johhny got his new nickname comp whore!)
