Here’s a bit of an oddity. Tony Wood, a British skater from Essex, has been putting pen-to-paper and writing poems for years, and compiled a selection of skate-related poetry with some doodles, illustrations and photos by other skaters from the UK scene. The finished product is a brilliant little read – fun to flick through over a cup of coffee while you rest your buggered back and aching ankles.
Just a note, though – Tony’s prone to the odd swear word and… ahem… “naughty” turn of phrase (the lines “You pull my legs apart / Like a badly treated tart” in one of the poems we photographed for this page is a good example of that), so if you’re buying this as a gift for someone, bear that in mind!
Update 15/02/21: Thanks to Brexit, shipments from UK into the EU are now subject to customs checks and VAT charges. Please be aware of this before placing an order as we cannot accept returns due to a customs charge. Yes, we think this is a stupid situation too. Dismiss
