    Fun skate with tons of mates. This guy Rob from Dublin I skated/partied with a few times before was with us too, we had some beers, chatted and realized we have a mutual friend... niallmuthafukkinc! I love how skateboarding can make this world so small.

    I was thinking about something similar earlier actually while watching the Clown promo.
    Went to London when I was mid / late twenties and went skating around on my own. I met some guys skating around the back of shell centre.
    Some months later, back up nearer home, I was at The House in Sheffield and one of the guys I had met in London turned up.
    Not sure what he had to do with Clown, if anything but it was a guy who introduced himself as Edson.
    Another instance of the small world thing was that a mate of mine who I grew up skating went to live in Bahrain.
    He built a ramp out there and got to meet a guy from Notts and somehow they got to talking about people they knew through skating back home and it turned out to be another mate of mine called Mark Warman whose brother was UK TM for Adio or something like that, a guy called Nick who I also knew.

    Edit: Skating in Sheffield meant that you would bump into people like Baines who often had Brady go and stay with him.
    Didn't get on buddy terms, just familiar faces.
    I went for a driving crash course that my Mother had paid and arranged for...in Blackpool.
    Took my board and went skating when I was not driving. The obvious place to go is the promenade. Guess who rolled up one evening...Brady.
    Recognised each other from Sheffield sessions and had someone to hang around with for the rest of the week. Sound chap.

    Human beings: six degrees of separation.
    Skateboarders: two or three. Or less.

    Plus there are more and more girls skating which can only make our community bigger and better.

    Always wondered if you’d met Fun Bobby, given where he lives now. He’s rad!

    With a name like that he must be under immense pressure to be "that fun guy".

    He is for sure! I met him at a comp here last summer, he came with Gav Coughlan and I've seen him a few times since. He just started skating vert with some of my mates. Top bloke!

    There is a bloke who works in the unit next to me at work and he started skating because his son scooters but he's got the bug bigtime now. Anyway, He bought an tiny old chapel to convert into a house but seems he's going to have to sit on it for a good while for various reasons, He didn't need any convincing but now we're going to build a private miniramp in there. Can't wait to get my skate back on.
