We bump into Harry in front of fistsite. Since his skating shop in the centre of town has closed down, and his mobile didn t work anymore, we couldn't get in contact. And Harry is a key person in the local skater scene, also involved in the political discussion about skating in public space.

It was the first sunny spring-like day, and we had a quick chat.
Harry is keen on the idea to demonstrate and explain more what skate culture is to a general public.
A 20 minute demo for when the Colchester Inn will be in fistsite later in March is not a problem.
He is also suggesting to make some bespoke ramps.

He mentions his new space, RampRage, an indoor skating place, and Matilde and I go there for a visit.
On the way we ask someone for directiosn to the skatepark, and their answer is: "Skatepark? Oh, that's at fististe, it is just up the road".
