Electric Unicycling Tricks Session @ Bromley Skatepark

The week’s video comes from Bromley skate park in South London.
In the last week I have worked to get my 180 shove-it consistency to greater than 80% so decided to use this early morning visit to try and take the trick to the slopes. The ramps at this facility have a “skate-lite” surface which are rather slippery when using an EUC, although still great fun.

Electric Unicycling @ Bloblands (Norwood Park) Skatepark

This morning I headed out early to ride at Bloblands Skatepark in Norwood Park. Norwood Park occupies the side of Salter’s Hill and on a clear day has fantastic views out over the city of London. The skatepark is a rather unusual creation – it looks to be a mixture of DIY as well as professionally cast concrete elements. It’s good fun to ride. At the bottom of the park there is a full sized tarmac football pitch which is a great place to practice “step off-step on” tricks.

Electric Unicycling at Pollards Hill Skatepark

Today I headed out to Pollards Hill skate park near Norbury and Mitcham in South London. After taking the train to Norbury it took me some time to find and reach the skate park which is situated in a field below Pollards Hill. Pollards Hill affords great views over South London and hosts a Triangulation point.

This skate facility is perfect for electric unicycling with a good selection of ramps, slopes, ledges and transitions, although the park in which it was located was very poorly maintained.

I took  a couple of my latest flatland tricks to the slopes with good results (step-off-step-on to fakie, and double and triple slope spins).

Later on in the day I grabbed half an hour down at Wandle Park in Croydon to film a raised wall roll.
