This time last year I began filming for ‘Stay True,’ a rollerblading video dedicated to the life and memory of a friend of ours - Danny Farmeary, whom we tragically lost in January 2010. This loss brought a lot of old and new friends together...
One of these old friends was Tom Everard, from Hornsea. Tom strapped on his Xsjado’s after 5 years out of rollerblading and began coming out with us now and again. We started to get quite a build up of clips and thought why not try and film a little section of Tom for the video. Through the summer months I was skating and filming with Tom every weekend in Scarborough, Hull, Hornsea, Nottingham, etc. This went on and on, until before we knew it, it was October, and we had 200 – 300 clips of him stacked up.
Although I will still be making copies of ‘Stay True’ for people who want them, Tom and I decided to put this section online for everyone to appreciate. It was a pleasure to skate and film with Tom throughout 2010, and I look forward to more of the same in 2011.
