Whitelines Rail jam and world record rail attemt....

Next Friday 2nd of December history will be made at SNO!park Mk...
A monster 85 meter rail will be decending on the slopes..
Have you got what it takes to be a world record holder?
Come down and see how far you can slide....

Heres what whitelines have to say about it...

Whitelines’ Rail Jam has joined forces with EA Sports’ new snowboard game SSX Tricky and Sno!Zone, to try and break the World Record for the longest rail slide ever on a snowboard. With fame and glory awaiting the new world record holder – the form of a £1,000 cash prize and a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records – there’s all to play for!

Anyone and everyone is welcome to the event, which takes place on Friday December 2nd at the Milton Keynes Sno!Zone. We’ll be running our rail jam as normal on a specially-built park, so even if you don’t fancy a crack at the record it’ll be well-worth it – there will be spot prizes for the best tricks in the jam, as per, and a big ol’ party after the event. Plus, you may well get to see history in the making! With the current record standing at 66.9 metres (set by a Spanish rider in the Madrid snowdome) we reckon there’s every chance that one of our riders will smash the record on our 80-metre behemoth and claim the monster cash prize. So see you down there!

Riders who want to have a crack at the record, please contact with any questions.

Since my tattoo he has tattood my wife and quite a few mates and all of them have been stoked with his work..He has been tattooing for over 15 years and specialises in custom freehand work and portraits.. For which he has won awards for at Tattoo conventions.
He has spent the past few months working hard to re-furb the shop and put his own style on the place, it looks amazing. There is soon to be flat screen TVs fitted so that you can watch Snowboard movies while getting your work done..

Burton HIGH 5 Park Build SNO!park MK Day 1....

Today was the first day of the SNO!park MK park build...
Rather than actually building anything as its still quite early in the week, we started off by confirming the park plan for the week, making sure all the rails are the correct size for there positions on the slope.

Once the plan was all sorted we had a look over our rails to check they're in good working order and straighten a few panels out..
We also had to remove all of the 'VOTE CAS' stickers that the castleford park team had cheekily stuck to all the Burton rails....
Naughty Naughty boys... It states in the rules you are not allowed to paint or sticker up the rails at all....
So after about an hour of picking the stickers finally came off...They must of been some good stickers , they didn't come off easily..

We also had received the Burton bench looking a bit beaten up with some panels missing , so we popped down to B and Q and got some wood to replace the panels and get the bench looking good once again.

That was about it for the day time today , but The Snow push will start tonight so we will be back to work at 11pm to start again..
Watch this space for more park progress....
