Last September Martyn Tambling received the keys to a unit and started work on his life long dream of owning and running his own skatepark along side his wife, Steph Tambling. Mart did not hang around and with the help of good friends, family, and the donation of ramps and materials from the likes of Source BMX, Red Bull, and others the park soon became a realization! Junkyard Skatepark was born and opened its doors at the end of October last year and Mart thought what better way to christen the park then to have the Verde guys come and session it over two evenings at the start of 2015!
If you follow us on Instagram you’ve probably seen clips featuring Verde’s Matt Priest, Lima, and Martyn Tambling ripping around lines at Junkyard skatepark in the UK. We caught up with Martyn to get the scoop on what it took to make the Junkyard a reality. Check out the interview below and stay tuned for more exclusive Verde Junkyard content dropping throughout the week.
“Verde is pleased to welcome Nacho Gomez to the international team. Nacho is 21 and is originally from Santiago, Chile but has lived in Vigo, Spain for several years. Nacho has traveled all over South America and Spain for contests over the past seven years but has now focused on filming impressive video parts with the RTF crew, finding original lines around the parks and streets. Thanks to Human BMX for the support and we look forward to seeing more from Nacho soon.” — Will Stroud, Verde TM & filmer
Verde is proud to welcome Rocco Giuseppe to the crew. Rocco hails from Fresno, but crosses paths with Tony Neyer all the time. Tony backs Rocco’s skill and strongly urged that we hook him up with a bike ASAP. Check out Rocco’s new Oxbridge set up. Expect to see more pics and videos soon. Photos courtesy of Chris Mortensen.
