We were truly set up for winter earlier this week thanks to a day spent in the midst of Kensington Olympia at The Ledge.
Surrounded by some of the top brands in skate and snow, the Ledge not only showed off the latest autumnal offerings from the skate and surf worlds, but gave us a chance to chat snow with some top riding brands.
With the likes of Nikita, DC, Never Summer, Neff and Dragon showing off their latest kit, alongside a sweet mini-ramp setup and skate contests, the Ledge was truly a trade show to get the snow jitters running.
Our top finds came from the likes of Nikita outerwear, and the latest Dragon APX goggles, while DC provided us with a sweet lounge area to chill watching the skate action.
The Osiris mini ramp contest saw Vans’ rider Denis Lynn ride away with a £1500 prize cheque, followed by Vans’ and Superdead rider Chris Oliver in 2nd and Third Foot rider Tom Carr in 3rd place.
But aside from the awesome action from the ramps, we were there to chat product, so here’s a few of the pics we laid down from the show.
It truly is a crazy show, with its own tattoo parlor (spontaneous ink anyone?!), some unique fashion and even free hair cuts downstairs, while upstairs provided us with all the skate brands we could dream of.
