Rain or Shine RVCA UK Part 1

iPhone snaps from my 11 day trip to London and surrounding cities while on the RVCA Rain or Shine UK tour
 Josh has the pre-flight blues
Luckily there's a prescription for that song
 Inflight entertainment on Virgin is always on point
 We had a few hotel jam ups upon arrival
It was a long travel day
 We started our first real day with a little Jeremy Leabres Re-Education
When he watches this does it mean he's Re-Re-Educated?
 The first spot was a kick ass DIY bike park...yeah, a bike park
A lot of it was fucked since BMXers dont care how smooth the 'crete is but there was definitely some sweet spots 
 Josh tailblocks for the boys
 Not a bad speedway
 Lots of funky wave action
 Deedz can hop around on any terrain 
 Leabres too!
I see lots of hangtime in his future
 Meanwhile at Meanwhile 
 The darkness couldn't keep us from sliding around in this ancient crusty dish
 Many nationalities represented in our thick crew
I loved seeing the reaction on the faces of all the tube riders when we board the train
Lots of eye brow raising and upturned noses

 "Dude, get it?!"
 Inventing games to pass the time
 Certain death
 A bank oasis in a unassuming basketball court
This really says fall
 Splitfire
I have always enjoyed using the tube 
 I witnessed one of the greatest kick flips ever by Jeremy Leabres 
Then the cops kinda reluctantly kicked us out shortly after this
"I guess we have to ask you to leave...sorry guys, I want to see you do the move but we got a complaint"
Cops are a different breed out there
 People either hated skateboarding and would curse you out on the street or they were absolutely amazed by it...like this guy
It was nice to have a few street beers with your bros and terrorize the city on my birthday.
