EKTA IN MALAGA - PART FOUR, GOD DAMN ROZZA'S

The Rozza's in Barcelona are one thing to look out for, we had no problems with them on the first day here in Malaga, in fact a couple of them watched us and the locals skating the main plaza and seemed to be quite stoked.

Well if you go up to the other side of the city towards the beaches and the expensive sky-rise apartments it's a completely different story....
While Matt was setting up the camera, he managed to film two cops walking towards us from their mopeds, bad idea for sure, after a load of Spanish jibba jabba and half an hour later they literally told us to Fuck Off out here and they didn't want to see us again.

At least they didn't take our boards though...

Any how we found Derek chillin out here though!

MALAGA - Part Three and 3/4 - Beers and skating.....well mainly beers

The first day like any other is one hell of a long day, getting up early to get to the Airport, dealing with all of the airport security rubbish, making sure you've got everything you need to take on the flight with you. Surviving Ryan Air's shoddy landings, hoping your bag turns up in one piece or turns up at all, getting transport into the city, trying to find where your staying and after all of this confusion go for a skate.....and have a few beers....






MALAGA - Part Three point Five - Beers and skating.....well mainly beers

No need to buy clementines, satsumas or oranges from the green grocers, they grow right here on the streets...
Didn't try one though...

MALAGA - Part Three - Beers and skating.....well mainly beers

Sorry for the delay on getting this up on the blog...

This place had to be officially the most awkward restaurant in all of Malaga, we can't speak Spanish and they can't speak English..... Good pizza's and beers though after fifteen minutes of trying to order...Rhys and Matt

Gareth aka G-Tank looking like a ghost and myself waiting on pizza....



Lewis and Rhys..

MALAGA - Part Two point Five - Matt's Ankle of Doom

I somehow completely forgot to mention that before we left to go to Malaga to start filming for the new video, our filmier Matt (Matt Hunt) managed to completely destroy his ankle, only four days before hand...
From what Matt said, he was trying to Bigspin off some drop at Truro Plaza and yep you guessed it, completely mangled his ankle.... Luckily it wasn't broken, just a little bit of bruising and some torn ligaments.... Nothing too major to worry about!!!

Cheers Matt your a legend for even coming along, let alone filming all day every day..
All of those evening beers and pain killers definitely helped a treat...

Here's the 8th bruised wonder of the world!

MALAGA - Part Two.... Aeroport

The only good thing about the Airport was that the old dear, who took our photo had her bag taken by someone thinking it was theirs, but she got it back.... Minus the rough landing all was good.

Introducing Neil Worthington

As promised, here's a short edit of some of Neil's footage from the Malaga trip...
Nothing too serious though.

Look clouds and stuff...

Yep, pretty much clouds and stuff!

Next stop, Cambodia... I mean Malaga

Why is it that Ryan Air, even though it's really cheap, it still feels like it's going to pull up at some plane station in the sky or some shitty service station...




While I fell asleep Rhys, Gareth, Max and Matt enjoyed the pleasures of flying first class with Ryan Air's cheap beers at Zimbabwean prices...£5 for a crappy little can, or a hot dog and a piece of stale bread for £4...stoked.....






Mean while up North & at the Security check point.....

While I'm having to work out how the hell to make my bag 7Kg's lighter, or in Ryan Air language £160.... Lewis and Neil are having beers...



After finally working out how to sort out the problem the next step was getting to the bloody plane on time... Due to some annoying posh family and young Sebastian's bloody apple juice, I got held up at the security scanner counter with the camera bag.

With the final boarding call going out for our flight, things didn't look too good to get on the plane in time. After hassling the security guard I finally got the hell out there and we even made the plane on time, we thought we were the last people to board....hell no!

MALAGA - Part One... Escape from the UK

Here's the first entry on our first filming trip for the new video, I've had to rape Facebook to get hold of some of these photo's... I'm gonna keep the write up on this pretty minimal, except where it's needed, if it's needed at all.

Day one - wake up at 5am, phone call of Max at 5:30 am, get picked up at 5:40 am, phone Matt at 6 am, pick Matt up at 6:15 am avoid the ice on the road....

Further up North, Neil and Lewis have made their way to Liverpool Airport for their flight at 10 am.

Rhys and Gareth leave Bridgend in Wales to meet us at Bristol International for half 10 or something....
