Hythe Part 4 - small man big boards

Part four of the Hythe video is Mark Tidbury, he didn't ever say he wanted to film anything for the video and this is all stuff he pretty much did every go, I just happened to be there to film it, he isn't the sort of guy that works at tricks, he just tries stuff and if it works he'll do it. This shows with the amount of kids that are stoked on Tibs skating when they see him in real life, he is starting to skate more and more transitions and less and less street, but this pretty much goes hand in hand with the amount of good parks that are popping up, if you go down to the Eastleigh bowl regularly you are guaranteed to have seen him shred first hand. The part he is sitting on for the Reskue Remix video is bangin, and features a stupidly good NBD, but you'll have to wait to see it! The amount of times I have had kids come in and say "Is it true Tibs has done..." is stupid, hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more of him soon!

A few people have asked about the drunk dude at the end of the parts, and yes it is Rob Castle, if you don't know who he is he is a sponsored BMXer who is getting pretty well known as he is on the Metal Bikes team, he used to live with me for a while and in true Castle style would come in pretty bladdered most nights, so I thought I would get some class quotes for the video one night, in between him puking in the bath.
Here is some of his BMXing:

You'll recognise a lot of the spots from skate videos.
