If you like your extreme sports then there was only one place to be this summer and that was NASS 08.
From fmx to bmx to inline to skate , this event has it all , after the three hour drive down to bath I was beginning to think this better be worth it , then with complications over the press pass , or lack of , I was really beginning to have second thoughts , that was until after passing the check in area , I am met with what can only be described as one huge set up , and with addition of the already large crowd I might of stumbled onto something , your first met with the sheer size of the skate area , now this takes bollocks , or insanity , not only do they throw themselves of the top they also perform what seems to be the impossible , defying the laws of gravity , set behind this are the bmx jumps , again , insanity springs to mind , its addictive viewing , I still haven't managed to shut my mouth yet , what they do . the height they go , again , it all doesn't seem to be the norm , walking around the event I realise im most definitely the oldest there , but with cameras hung around my neck it adds a bit of street cred to me , I then locate the arena for the fmx , this I had been looking forward to and capturing the intensity of what these guys do , the show begins and my son has to help me pick my chin of the floor , it is truly amazing , again , me rambling on doesn't do this justice , check out the shots , they say it all ,
By midday the event is rammed , and by this point the quality of the guys performing has again gone up a level , the big boys come out to play, and play they do , the bar keeps getting raised on all the events , its hard to know what to watch , thatís why you need more than one day there , I feel I missed so much , purely be only being there the one day , although when I downloaded my images it did put a smile on my face ,
With the added fair ground , extreme rides , paintballing and as many food vans as you can see , this most definitely a stop over event , what started out as pain in the arse day ended up being a great day for me and my son , if any of the above or any of the shots have floated your boat then you know where you have to get to the start of next summer , NASS is the place for you !!!!
