Mile End Meltdown Gallery

Posted on

Last Friday we teamed up with adidas to bring you the Mile End Meltdown event which represented the start of the Summer Holidays. It was great to see so many of you show up in force, down to fully skate on the day. adidas had arrived at Mile End early to drop off Chewy’s Pole Jam creation and a variety of tables with a kicker which all got well used. Prizes and giveaways were on hand as motivation and our hosts Chewy Cannon, Benny Fairfax and Blondey McCoy orchestrated what went down with their megaphones. Their day began with a Tuk Tuk ride from our Slam East Shop to the skatepark. Here’s a photographic overview of the event shot by Adam Toddhunter…


3 Tuk Tuks outside our East London shop is an unusual sight


Benny, Blondey and Chewy all had their own whip


Just before 2pm the Tuk Tuks hit the streets


Blondey was holding it down for the Slam team all day


Chewy cannon was at home in the Tuk Tuk having cycled something similar around the streets of BCN


They were joined by crowds keen to get involved from the beginning


Slam team rider Jak Pietryga was out killing it all day. This lengthy kickflip is one of many tricks he launched out of the kicker


Benny was a good host and got creative with the adidas additions


Nelly Mayele lipslides the two table stack, channeling Rodney Vs Daewon


Prizes were handed out throughout the day, keeping the motivation high


Slam team rider Kyle Wilson went in and skated everything. Hairy vert action sticker placement challenge juxtaposed with a Switch Backside 180


Chewy, Blondey and Benny kept cooking up the challenges


Chris Oliver always delivers. This lofty NoseBlunt Slide was a highlight


After Mile End everyone retired to Slam East

Two legends. Mark Jackson and Darius Trabalza


Everyone involved was fed and watered and made their way off into the night

Thanks to all of you who came out on the day and everyone who worked hard to make this happen. Massive thanks of course to adidas who made these ideas a reality.
