Holiday snaps

The time has come to take you through my trip to Amsterdam last week with the Mighty Swoosh. We were greeted with our own radio station in the cab straight off the plane...



The taxi took us to our hotel, the building was amazing...



We were welcomed to our room...



and given an itinerary...



Here's the view from our room...



Waterway to have a good time...



Had a quick look in on a coffee shop but I didn't inhale...



As I showed you before there was some excitement about Method Man staying in the same hotel but no photo op other than with the tour bus. With no time to spare we were whisked away to the secret location on a coach with Sid, Korahn and Colin...



Ushered in by flashing air strip lights we pulled up by a giant door...



Which led us into Badger's space ship...



We sat in here listening to Nasa noises...



We were then shown the Omar Salazar advert and taken through the concept for the shoe and it's development by Omar himself and the main designer who worked on the project. After this we were ushered into the best skatepark I've ever had the pleasure of visiting where we were given a pair of his shoes by girls in Barbarella outfits...





Then we had fun for hours. There was food and beer but I missed the food, oblivious to it existing. Sam made an edit which is good because I didn't take any photos. You'll get to see the skatepark

I wish we had something like that here. It was good getting to skate with everybody, Badger came for a skate too. After this we went back to the hotel...



To pick up these...





and head out to the party which was phenomenal, unlimited free booze. Hence apologies for the lack of photographic evidence and the existing one's lack of quality. Luy-Pa and Gui were there and it was good to see them both as always...



Here's a bad one of Korahn and Colin...



and one of Marcel Veldman...



No others were salvageable I'm afraid. With a quick sleep in between we flew back to London City the next day. None of these were allowed on the plane...



But somehow I wangled this on there...



it was a great experience and a real treat to skate that park. Thanks to Nike SB and Sam Barratt..



For making our visit possible
