I've just come back from the amazing Rhythm Riot Weekender (more info here) in Camber where I took part in their first ever Vintage Skate and Surf Expo.

As you can see from the photographs there were some great old school skateboards and vehicles. Part of the show involved each artist customising a skateboard. I daubed mine with the rear end of a 1951 Ford Woodie.

One of the events sponsors was the VHRA (Vintage Hot Rod Association) a British based association promoting pre 1949 Hot Rods. I would highly recommend going to their website as they have an amazing contingent of hot rods on their register.

Thanks to Robin and Neil for putting together such a great show!
