BSD Tour

Last summer the BSD team came to Aberdeen as part of their "30% chance of sun" Tour.  They did a shop signing at our friends at 20Twenty then came and ripped the park up and got the kids super stoked.

Looks like our mate Ross Armstrong may be riding for them one day by the looks of it, that 720 was wild!

Look away if squeemish..

Calum Macpherson filmed his mate take this awkward slam on the big ledge.  It was so gnarly that the Ride Channel used it for their weekly Click to Kill clip. 



Looks like he totally had it but stepped off...
Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true. Bohdi - Point break

Go Skate Day Results!




This years GoSkateDay event was a banger! TX would like to say a big thank you to all those who came along for the shred and to Boarderline and TheRadLife for donating some brilliant prizes for the Jam.

Everyone ripped but it has to be said that Stonehaven showed up and shut it down. Big ups to the Stonehaven scene!

Stuart Taylor has a Rad Life because he works at Transition. Check out his pics below.



Under 16s
1st - Kieren Brindley
2nd - Liam Thomson
3rd - Darren Ellis




Kieren Brindley took full ownership of the under 16s game of SKATE too.


Over 16's
1st - Murray (Muzz) Cheyne (not pictured)
2nd - Endez
3rd - Callum Barrack








Tom Simpson...this guy is unstoppable on a skateboard and a nice chap to boot. He can also do lots of switch tricks consistently well. That's why he won the over 16s game of SKATE and you didn't.






Callum Foley also has a Rad Life and does Rad tricks that win him prizes. Best trick for axel to indy-pull in on the 6ft sub box.
