Monday Mission.

Sorry for no post after I said I would yesterday, as soon as I posted it I put my pads on and it got all wet out side so nothing happened. Bummer. Got in from work today early ish with still some light in the sky and a moist floor so I took the opportunity to explore and ride some street. I found a couple of flat blocks not to far away which with abit TLC and wax would slide rather well. I also found in a rather close location some sweet benches that had afew lines and stuff that could be had however I am unsure on how much of a bust they would be. After riding through a questionable estate I found an amazing hand rail, small about 2 bikes long 6 or 8 stairs. It looks a peach and it has fences down bother sides of the stairs to hope over into a grass bank. Will have to send it I think, perfect for me I feel (not in the way them blue rails next to Fusion call center are for Pid though.)After abit more a mooch I came across a flat big of concrete into a grass bank with a little curb gap thing at the top which looked like it could be fun when the grass is dry to stunt into. After that I got abit lost and came across a rather sweet roundabout underpass with banks and a possible gap. Cobbles at the top stick up which limits a potential lethal wall ride and making the spot like something off skate but it's still canny good. Anyway that was one little loop around the area and there is plenty more exploration to be done and I shall let you know and if you are lucky take you to all of these new spots. Who knows, if I can find some mates there might be some on the edits!
See you soon.

Photo To Follow...

I have a house! Not much in the way of riding this week, well not until I've written this then I am off out to hopefully get a photo for you lot. The lack of riding is due to me getting a really nice room and a wicked house in Turnpike Lane. Big room and a back yard so riding will be happening so get your selves down to the big smoke and help me make some edits and show the south how we northern people ride street. Sketchy and hard the way it should be! Anyway how that I have a pad you are all welcome any time so just drop me a holla when you are coming down and I'll get the tins in. House mates are all cool and there is loads of place to sleep and keep bikes safe. I might hit you with another update depending on how riding goes and you will have a photo of something tonight. Hope everyone is keeping well and I am really looking forward to my return home at the end of next month for some good old drunken fun.

Sunday big one.

I am so so sorry for the major slackness over the last month or so. Finally moved (well half moved) to London and started my new job which so far looks like it's going to be sweet. As most of you know I tried to do this last year but ended up coming back home to do an MSc and fuck my life up as much as I could by allowing my self to be sucked into a fucking horrible depressing life and becoming a total cunt! As you might have seen I try not to use to much bad language in this but that is what I became. I let myself be turned into some one who I always hated without even putting up any sort of fight or trying to save the only thing that has ever truly mattered to me. It would be easy to blame it all on other people but the truth is it was my fault, I was a weak excuse of a human and I hated every single part of the who fucking episode which has left me fucked and not properly happy or the really Krissy Shee for the past year and fuck knows how much longer to come. The only thing to keep me going was BMX and some good friends. I just want to say think you to you all, you know who you are and I wish I listened to you all earlier instead of going into self destruct with "that". If it wasn't for you all and the little 20" wheels I would no doubt be in a much worse situation that I am now. This is not only a thank you be an apology for it all. I fucked up big time and regret every second of it, I hurt a lot of people and I know you were all disappointed with me but I hope most of you can see that the proper Krissy Shee is almost back together with just the one major piece still missing. I love you all.

Right back on with the normal carry on. As I said I have started my new job and contrary to any rumors going around I do not have a mustache, stick on or other wise and I am not drinking cocktails or wearing sparkly jump suites. I rode the little skate lite park I have talked about before on my way back from work on Tuesday which was sweet as it was the first time I have been out since moving. The mini ramp there is rather good although it is a bit wide for it's size. Yesterday was really sunny so I went to a little park around the corner from where I am staying which was canny for the odd little set up it is.

The 1/4s are a bit mellow and the grinds are only metal on one side but the concrete still slides ok on the old smith. Met a couple of people there, one fella who had a really nice turn down on him and they all had pegs which was nice to see. With it only being a little park I only spent an hour there before heading back to base to work out the rout to Camden skatepark which looked rather sweet. It's just one long road all the way to it from Rosies so I thought I would just mooch it. Only took half an hour to ride there which wasn't to bad. When I got there it was rather busy but not as snakey as one might imagine. It's a really good park however the riders were not as friendly as up north (as in North London). Was more of an Exi vibe about the place. The street section was ok but there was a distinct lack of grinds and pegs in the place but the nice banks and sort of Temple Park bank things down one side where enough for a man of my streetness!! Haha. The bowl in that place is amazing as you can see and although I can't really ride that type of thing, carving around and jumping the hips was more than enough fun for me. The section at the top which is like a mini was the perfect steepness and was a really really nice ride.

If the place was a bit quieter it would be a really good session and I might get myself along to the Wednesday night session that goes on and try and make some friends and maybe next time I can have some pictures of riding again and not just empty parks stolen off google and I have no mates to take pictures of. Anyway I hope I see some of you soon and I promise to be less slack even though I don't think I'll have any pictures for awhile but I will still keep on the updates.

Friday Photo Seaburn Jam special.

Well I know it was almost a week ago and really this should have been up at the start of the week but this is the last week of my MSc and so I am mega busy hence no edit yet. The monthly edit is done but I still haven't looked at any of the jam footage never mind started to sort it or think about what to do with it. As you all know I will be sickly busy for at least another 2 or 3 weeks so this months edit and photos might be abit slack but I promise to do my best to get at least some shit sorted. Any way the jam was amazing, stunts went down the best of which I can remember would be Marc Bell hopping on the back of the block 3 onto the lower part and doing a slingger off. Dyno done a huge aly-oop whip on the 1/4er and a sweet hanger or over pedal crooks thing and low speed, Fido ripping the mini a new one with all sorts of crazy maneuvers, Sam Watson doing a sweet over pegs to hard way 180 on the new longer rail and late arrival Pete with a sweet 180 backwards crooks all of which got a beer or some sort of randomly collected items. Best trick I seen for the day was the NSF big gun Chris Souter with a huge curved wall ride to 180 and finishing off with a half cab bar spin. If you were there then you know how good it was if not you once again missed out on a good day of beer bikes and fun times. After the party came the after party back at the Shee house hold where all things considered the party went well and booze went inside me and the rest is a blur. Here are a selection of photos from me, some stolen from NMB and Mexican John the European explorer.

Busy busy man photo of last week!

Well I am very sorry that this is so late. Busy man at the moment trying to find a house in London and finish off my Uni work and sort the jam out! Sucks, nee time for stunts or photos or footage and I have to be in London at the end of the week again. Trying get get some footage to get an edit out there as well as the edit that will come from the Seaburn jam but I am seriously running out of time and I have shit to do. Not good, but I will get it done don't worry, I have till Tuesday. Anyway as far as BMX went last week for me I didn't involve more than Seaburn and a sweet night time town mission involving Doxys finest and Woods and Daws however the reall shit didn't go down untill D tweaked his foot and we hit up the less ridden spots of the city center. We hit up this forgoton gem, well it you can call it that after Rob did the only possible half decent thing possible on it on NSF. I did give it a little love with afew manouvers and I do think there is more to be had if I get back to get some footage before the end of the month but you'll have to wait and see I guess.

Me with a shitty little wall ride.

After this little nibble me and Woods decided to part way with the Billy Lad and go hit up a late night Craggies block mission which turned out to be rather productive, well for me anyway. Here is a selection of the things that got thrown on the table.

Trademark footplant.


Letting the cat out the bag time and time again.

Woods getting tucked up for bed.


Also people remember its the Seaburn Jam v3 this Saturday so get yourself along for beer, BBQ, BMX and all round good times.

Back on the rails Photo Friday.

After a few missed Fridays we are back on track with this gem from the Billy lad from way back on Saturday giving me the rest of the week to fight the ever increasingly unpredictable weather and gather up some clips. Unlike last month filming is going well and I already have a fair few clips in the bag. In other news I will be moving to London in September and so I really don't know what is going to happen with the edits. I will still be shredding up the mean streets of the big smoke however I know no one down there so I'll be solo shit and the odd clip from people if they pop down or when I pop up. Going to try and convince these slackers to get footage and send it down to me but how successful that will be is yet to be seen. I am sure I'll still keep this thing rolling along nicely and I might even make some plans for next year so I can keep contact with you lovely northern folk while I am down south. Gonna have to get a copy of Fair Play and start studying Nang so I can fit in and get some mates. Anyway chin up people sure the nice weather will pro-vale soon and we can get back out for a late summer work out. VW fest this weekend so I'll get back on the record button on Monday. Mean while feast your eyes on this big lad from the Billy Lad.

Does exactly what it says on the tin.

The stone age photo of the week.

Apparently the internet has quite reached Murton yet so I am very sorry for the lack of photo yesterday. Again it's been a strange week for the weather. Raining cat and dogs right now so today mission to start filming is gonna have to be under cover and I don't mean like Leonardo DiCaprio in The Departed. Had a little trip to the wasteland on Tuesday and had my self alittle stunt and a catch up with the good men of Newcastle but really apart from that there is little to report. Got my Notion T-shirt today with afew extras thrown in so thanks to Cleggy for that. Only real thing I can tell you is that Seaham skate park is open. It's not shit and if it was empty you could get a good little stunt on and there are afew lines kicking about if you want to get creative but please don't make any effort to go. By all means have a mooch up if you are in the area but that's it. However it was good enough for this photo of the week from a veteran of the sport. Blob with a front tire jam back in forward. Hope the weather sorts it self out for us all. Oh and get your self on Mexican Johns blog for some local news.

We Ride Kids Bikes July 2010 edit.

Here is number 6 for you all. So sorry about the quality still haven't got rid of all the technical issues which I am gutted about because I think this is the best edit so far. Few new faces in July which is lucky because the old hands have been slacking and or breaking bikes. Luckily some of the young guns stepped up there game and a couple of old friends get their riding heads back on and picked up where they left off last summer. Don't know how people can do that like, if I don't sling a B for a day I've basically lost them and end up back at square one. Hope you like the new edit which I honestly never thought would make the 2 minute mark never mind be as good as it is. Well in my opinion anyway. gonna make sure footage is gathered at a steady pace this month and not just a mad rush at the end like some sort of Uni assignment that has been forgot about. See you all on Friday for the photo and stay tuned for a Seaburn Jam update to.

End of a sketchy week Friday Photo.

Well it's been a strange old week, the weather has been all over the place. You get up and it's bright and joyful then you get ready to ride and it rains so you sack it off and it gets nice and dry again so off out you go, get one clip then the sky darkens and it's time to make a quick get away only for the cycle to start all over again. Luckily between the darkening sky's and bright sun shine the camera has managed to leave it little red pouch and clock some quite good stuff, still not enough but one half decent days riding and we'll be there. I have started to put together the edit and am rather pleased with it apart from the major lack of quality due to further technical difficulties that come with a new computer. The good software I used to convert my clips is no more and I can't for the life of me remember what it was called and so what possibly is the best edit so far is going to look like it was filmed in a snow globe.
On another note there is some new art work for the top of the page done again by the wonderfully talented Rosie Upright. Thank you again for that Rosie much appreciated. Hope you like it. Check out her blog if you are that way inclined.
Anyway here is this weeks photo, sorry it's of me again but I was planning on doing a multiple photo update today but the sun has decided to do one and so photography and filming is going have to be put on hold. Last dash clip session tomorrow it is then. I hope to got it doesn't rain as I am still 35 seconds short. Fingers crossed.

A new trick in the bag. Hanger on the long lasting Seaburn rail.

Fucked Up Friday Photo.

Where has it gone? Posted it up last night and it has decided to do one just like the sun did this week. Not really got much footage this week due to adverse weather conditions however if you had some patients it was possible to have a good shred post 8pm a couple of nights this week which lucky I did. Managed to get 4 or 5 clips towards the edit but still nowhere near what I need so the back end of next week better be full of bangers or the edit is gonna be mega short and mega shit but still. Here is last night's photo which didn't work from mine and Wood's late night mission to Shields.

Leeds Leeds dirty Leeds.

Sorry I missed you on Friday, ended up going down the the King Far A Day jam on Friday night rather than Saturday as planned which was a very good move. Woke up Saturday morning to blazing sunshine and an amazing set up at the park, wall rides everywhere. The LS6 lads did really well. Me and Blob ripped it up and tested the wall ride and slung some bee's pre 9am. Earliest I've been on my bike in many a year. We then got some coffee and some breakfast from Leeds finest breakfasting establishment and did a little wander into Leeds for some shopping and to kill some time before the jam. Upon walking to the shopping district it began to rain and rain bad and so the only thing to do was go to the vans shop and spend some cash in the sale. When we got back the park was wet and nasty so we hit the beer. The place did dry up at about chinnese dentist so I put down the 40 and got out the stunt bike and had my self a little shred just to make myself feel better about my day. After a hour of power it was back to the beer in the sun leaving the riding to the big guns at the kicker. Seen a sick failed flip and Northen John sending it before getting more booze and chilling with old friends and some new ones. I then decided it would be a sweet idear to have a snooze before hitting up Leeds Leeds dirty Leeds club scene. Major mistake, snooze then party does not work so after a walk to the Dry Dock it was time to turn around and do more snoozing. Good times where had by all and we where all truly Kings For The Day.

Daws, slinger of the rail ride for the Friday photo.

Friday night fire.

Pid would be proud of this bad lad.

Grubs up.

The set up. Was also a curved wall ride on the hip.

Don't call it a come back.

And we are back online! Finally got my computer sorted and my first task was to get an edit made again. This thing is rushed and horrible with a crap song and Windows Movie Maker for Windows 7 is the worst thing ever. How can a new program be so much worse than the one it is replacing? Really sucks. I will get a few good photos for Fridays update since I have let you all down so badly the last two weeks. I also still haven't started filming for the new edit but I will get as much done as possible in the last two weeks as uni has been sick so far and job hunting and stuff and people going way next weekend to Bug jam and there is the King For A Day jam this weekend so I hope Sunday brings abit of hungover street riding and possible abit clippage for you. Sorry for rambling just trying to get my computer sorted the way I like it and looknig for some new editing software since my Move Maker days are numbered. Hope you like the edit and I promise next month will be good as long as people pull there fingers out and get shit done.

Thursday Scotland Trip Report.

I can only apologise for the slack behaviour this week. There was no photo last Friday as we had set off for a road trip north of the boarder and so far this week I have been busy sorting out uni and doing exams and shit I haven't really had a chance to get one here and tell you all about it.

The plan was devised late on Wednesday night in a drunken stooper that was the England win. Leave Friday afternoon once the grafters have finished graft and drive half way north and get some kip and save on a big drive on Saturday and start earlyish in the morning. On route we thought we would hit up Newbiggin by the sea to ride it's transitioned sea defences. After pulling into the car park of the stereotypical North East fishing village we where told by the Senior member of the crew that he had heard an urban legend that Newbiggin by the sea had had sand imported from beaches further down the coast to make there beach bigger. To do this of course they had to bury the promenade and the sea defences with it! So far so good. We still had a ride along the front and came across this rather nice stair set up.

Had it not been 8pm and we had not just got out of the rig shit might have gone down as they were a nice size and rather sweet with the little boost at the side which was abit righty friendly but still. Anyway nothing really got done apart from the odd boost and a hope up them without first checking them out, fortunately not resulting in a big o'l cobra bite. While heading back to the van we decided to have a quick look around the bend and found a taster of what we could have been riding if we had the time to dig through 200 tones of sand to reclaim the lost sea wall. As you can see these lost treasures would have had loads of potential in there day.

While I was trying to negotiate my way through rock pools and Newbiggins fine young adults in amongst the rock the Billy Lad was doing what he does best and slinging some bee's.

After a nice big shinner we packed up and moved out to our resting place for the night at Bambrough. We was planning on finding a campsite but after the late arrival and lack of them we decided to just park up and lob the tents on the sand. After scoping out the tide line for awhile we decided we would probably be ok to stick them up next to the rocks right below where we parked without getting soggy feet. Before we fired up the pink bucket of joy we had our selves a little mooch along the beach towards a white deer past a rather off seal that Skipsy took a fancy to. You have no idea how bad that thing smelt! Back up wind to Skipsy new lover for the night we set away pinky and cracked open the wine and beers and chilled on mother earths pre-made seats while we cooked up some gourmet burgers. Skipsy however being the new Ray Grils decided to go limpet hunting for his tea but after being put off by the green bubbles and sick taste he opted to dabble in the burgers with the rest of us.

Once we had our fill we went for a nice romantic walk along the beach towards the castle and came across two massive dice, which was nice.

We awoke in the morning to find that we may have slightly miss judged the level of the tide which had came to within 6ft of the back of my tent which was alittle but worrying. After knocking up some sausage sangers and black coffee on the beach we headed to the first proper stop of the trip, the new and highly recommended Edinburgh skate park.

Once we had a quick poo and wash in Ewan Mcgregor's favourite toilet we rolled into possible one of the best and busiest parks I have seen. The place was amazing and I recommend you go just not on a Saturday morning or afternoon or any point where children are not at school. After eyeing up a number of lines each to do for the edit we decided to just sack it off and go ride some street away from the play ground. After a massive loop of the historic city and finding out that some of the history had been either removed (RIP Shabaz) or fenced off we went back to a ledge we had seen earlier in the day and then onwards to our next resting spot, this time a proper campsite for a wesh and a good kip.

Once we found a place to stay we wacked the code into the Navman and headed for the site on a wildlife reserve only to be knocked back by a rather friendly scotish woman who kindly pointed us in the direction of a filed that the "lady in the kitchen" said people camped in all the time and that we could leave the rig in her car park which was nice. We loaded out gear onto out backs and hiked to the spot we where told. My word what a view. You could see right down to the Forth Road bridge in the distance and the rolling hills in front, couldn't have found a better spot to sleep after an amazing night sleeping on the sand. Here is a small sample of the view from base camp two.

And a view of base camp two.

That night the men feasted. Honestly the now ex-pink bucket seen some serious action that night, meat on sticks, normal meat, steam cooked mange tout and baby corn, mushrooms and tomatos, chillies and some good dogs. The lads eat well and slept well that night I can tell you.
We awoke to the blazing sunshine and headed to Livingstone for tins of bean and sausages and a variety pack of eight. Once we entered the shit tip that was Livi where some plankys had clearly had a massive doo the night before we found that we are not cut out for its gnarlyness and after a short stunt we offskied to the more homely feel of Glasgow street. We rode for miles around the city and shit got done as you will see a sample of in the edit which will be up tomorrow for all to see. Sorry for rambeling on so long about nothing in particular, guess you kinda had to be there.
Laters people.
