Here in the UK, we’re not blessed with the steep mountains of Europe, the parks of North America, or the nipple-deep powder of Japan. But do we let that stop us shredding? Do we balls.
What we lack in natural terrain, we make up for in ingenuity, guile, and craft. This inbuilt resourcefulness displayed perfectly by the guys at the Southern Freestyle Club when they set up this sick car park rail jam.
While the UK may have enjoyed the odd dusting of snow, it’s hardly been dumping this season, so how do a bunch of skiers and snowboarders get their hands on enough snow to put such an epic session on in Bracknell?
“the budget was low, but the spirit was unquestionably high”
The approached a local ice rink, who had some surplus crud going, so the lads got a skip, collected the cold stuff (calling it snow might be a push), and spread it across the car park of a local leisure centre for a sick little rail jam, pretty much in their own back yards.
Granted, it’s maybe one of the darkest rail jam edits we’ve ever seen since TuPac murked Biggie in Rock-A-Rail in Holland, but the fellas were lighting things up with car headlights, along with a few other lamps. The budget may have been somewhat lower than the X Games, but the spirit, and will to get out and ride unquestionably higher.
So what are you waiting for? Don’t wait for the snow to come to you. Get out there and make it happen. We expect to see Rail Jams across the nations carp parks this weekend.
