The Great Irish Snowskate of 2018

Our last Nuacht post, 'twas around the time we had that lousy Smarch weather (there's a Simpsons quote for everything). Since we don't get snow that often (its not real snow unless it "sticks" like), a load of fuckers went snow-skating, documented it, and had a class time. Let's remember that feeling by mixing those clips to the only bongo song that matters.

Sound for letting us use your clips XO

GSA - This is our "training pitch" (Video)

It's 2018, Galway is a city of culture, our wooden toys are an Olympic discipline, and Galway City Council still can't provide a decent concrete park SMH. Well here's a short campaign video from the Galway Skateboard Association, in support of the 'Upgrade Millennium Skatepark' project.

Sign that petition, go on go on go on.

Lousy Smarch Weather

Ireland weather snow beast from the east
It would be incredibly easy to blame lack of updates because of the weather, so I will...

"Beast from the east" aka we had some shnow, has past us. As is customary for these type of weather patterns, skaters up and down the country, rekindled their grá of the "snow-skate" (aka sledboarding, deck the halls... etc). And, judging by the Instagram stories I'd seen, ya all took to the snow and ice more than the previous rare snow falls. See yours truly with @eamonnobct PhD, @rosstagram, and Dublin's @minte1916. Snow-skate Ireland Compilation soon? ;)

You've probably seen Nyjah Huston's video entry for Tokyo 2020 by now, incredible skating obvs, but Ty "Is there anything to be said for another slowmo?" Evans was the filmer and editor, and naturally some shots were hilarious... like that The Nyjah Look™

Speaking of the Olympics, this is old now in "Internet time", but Freeskatemag did a interesting/strange/lol wut? interview with "France's Olympic Skateboarding Coach."
...only twenty skaters will make it to the 'street' contest in the Olympics. That's four per continent. Only four Europeans will take part in the street skating event at the Olympics.” Good luck!

Shout out to my boys Nearly Gnarly, being productive as ever.

Hope you all spat out a forty for William Patrick's Day

Millennium Skatepark: Motion @ Galway City Council


A bitta news Re:#upgrademillenniumskatepark

After going back and forth with some local councillors, it was recommended to have an emergency section 22 motion for the next Galway City Council meeting (Monday April 10th). If this motion is backed by a majority of councillors (10), it will mean the executive will see how much the project could cost, then revert back to the council for inclusion in the next budget. Class right? well for that to happen, we need YOU to call your local Cllr (details in link) and ask them to back the motion. IF! if this passes, it is a major step towards our overall goal to finally have a concrete skatepark in Galway city that it's community can be proud of :)

REMINDER: Call your council!
