I Used To Skate Once vol 08

On 21st of June, my friends and I visited a now not so little exhibition known as ‘I Used to Skate Once’.

Now a yearly event, I found The Zoo was packed all the way out to Winn Lane which was also open for the night. Submerged in the sk8er boi atmosphere, I immediately regretted my shoe choice (especially after I’d been at the Reboot exhibition at Artisan) and wished I had opted for my favourite Vans.

Anyways, like I said, the mood was set perfectly with the stage transformed into a half-pipe and some decent local bands playing stage left. The skate boards lined the walls, all with such a unique flavour. Here’s some shots of my personal favourites. (Check out the skate board transformer! It’s my fav!)
