I’ve said before that one of the things that I like about Doncaster is the sense of community here. The group I used to work with at a bar in town got people together in Sprotbrough on Sunday to commemorate their friend Jim Firth with a skate competition and barbecue. Good company, good weather and good skate combined to make it a lovely afternoon.
I could sit and watch skateboarding for hours – but then I can sit and watch anything that requires talent and skill for hours. I don’t understand the bad press skateboarding receives, I don’t see how it’s any different to hobbies such as skydiving, horse riding or even something like art. If it’s a passion and you’re good at it, keep doing it.
A good afternoon with good people.
