Lords Of The Swords 2015 Awards Night - Shutter Gap Mega Ramp

Empire Skatepark was the venue once again for the Lords Of The Swords 2015 awards night . The votes had been counted and independently verified and Saturday nights celebrations saw the welcome return of an old favourite, The Shutter Gap!

Work had gone in to this the night before with the construction and decoration of the landing ramp and an extension to give ample speed to clear the barrier out, into the car park.
As usual, rain threatened all afternoon and the clouds gathered as I set up a test shot, but with the luck of the swords, it stayed dry!
Jordan and Mikey began to play and a couple of good pictures were in the bag before the evening got underway!
I left in the early hours of Sunday morning. By this time the skating had given way to partying and as the entire Lords Of The Swords 2015 event had done, the party was going off.
