Flipside "I Know..." Online Streetboard Clip
Dom has been working hard for a while on getting a video montage together of footage we collected over last summer with Colin Horan from Day One, and he has just uploaded the video to his website. The video is called "I Know..." and you can download it by going to Dom's site by clicking here or by heading to his blog in his team section in the main site menu <.
His site is also being updated with news of his travels through Canada Snowboarding and Streetboarding, it's well worth a read.

NASS 08 Streetboard Invasion!
A few years ago while speaking to the organisers of NASS they mentioned to us that some guerilla marketing was needed to get Streetboarding out in front of the crowds, so this year that is exactly what we intend to do! Josh is spear-heading an initiative to get as many UK Streetboarders to the event to take over the parks and get Streetboarding in front of the masses. Incase somehow you've not heard of NASS, it is the UK's biggest extreme sports festival that attracts the world's top pro's in all sports and thousands of spectators each year. NASS is happening on the 13th - 15th of June at the Bath & West Showground. Check out the NASS website by clicking here.
We want as many people as possible to come so if you're interested send Josh an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your interest.
