This is why I love this sport. Capital Bocking Eve and I'm sat down at a table with the legends.

Good company, good times, bring on one amazing weekend!

Sorry Clive I think you were at the bar or something :(

Actually guys I think you would have really liked the Sunday, much better weather and we got pretty much everyone doing some real bocking. My pics are on the facebook page which should be public.
I got a couple of vids of jake and greg today on the steps including jake doing a backflip 720 (thats a backflip with two full twists). Not sure if that's even been done before but man what a day.
Thanks to everyone who made it what it was 8)

I'm not against having it in Cardiff, but it would really want it re-surfaced  as its in a terrible state. I think we got lucky with the weather as well. Sunday was a great day and few got sun burnt. If it was throwing it down with rain it would have been a different story.

Locky lets admit it mate  :Cbiggrin:

You have the best Bocking venue in the known world on your doorstep mate  :Claugh: (even with the surface as it is )

There I've said it and it hurt  :Claugh: (why do you think I am moving to Wales as soon as I can mate )

If you hold it they will come  :Cbiggrin:

Maybe we should change it to Cardiff Bocking

I for one want to come visit you for a weekend at least once a year gutted I missed Sunday it looks like you had so much fun but next year I'm there

I was pretty astounded at the state of the Basin surface, even compared to 16 months ago it looks and feels awful. Having said that, it's still my favourite place in the UK for bocking.

You say that Jason, but I warn you - You will become addicted if you start that. My visits to Wales went from once every 3 months, to every 2, to once a month, to the point where Locky had to put up with me living in his house for 2 weeks (And I think Carl came to stay for a few days too) :Claugh:

You know I agree there are few places in the UK that rival cardiff bay for bocking however, I still feel not a lot of bocking takes place at CB. I mean sure the EA's had fun on both the conrete and wooden steps and some of our guys did too but on the whole I dont think people look around and think ok what I could learn to do today.

It's not a bad thing, many of us are old friends and its great to chill and chat and have a laugh but when I see things like Hannah (mini ellis) learning to vault, Jason and Clive jumping on the dock wall I think THATS what CB should be about.
Seriously with the amount of steps of all shapes and sizes, hand rails, blocks and even the giant pebbles which nobody visited this year - there is a lot that I think any bocker could come along and push themselves and learn something new.

When we talk about the possibility of other venues around the country we always look for obstacles and things to do for us but do we really need that?
I think people would learn more coming to cardiff in a smaller group and actually bock, just like sprog mentioned though I wouldnt count on staying at my house for 2 weeks!

Not your fault Clive so no appology needed mate

I do agree that I for one didn't make as much use of the obsticals as I would have liked to Locky
I had that awful cold a couple of weeks before and lost all my fittness so get knackered very quick at the moment (can't believe how much it has affected me )
But next time I am gonna push myself and get a few new tricks under my belt

I recon a good google earth of London is called for to try and find some good places that we can use
