The team consisting of Madars Apse, Wes Kremer, Gosha Konyshev & Antony Lopez were in London at the end of May to skate some street spots, give out free shoes and launch 'Defy Convention: 20 Years of DC in photographs' exhibition at the Parlour skate store in Hackney. 

The team stayed in London for just two days, but they were very productive.

Day one was supposed to be a more relaxed one and devoted to street skating. Henry Kingsford from Grey skate mag came up with the plan for the day which included spending some time in Clapham Junction area and then skate at the Southbank on the way back. Wes & Madars were already injured and joined the rest of the team just for fun, but as the first spot in Clapham Junction proved - Madars was up for it if the spot was interesting enough. Gosha Konyshev at the same time got injured which didn't stop him from having a good time. Southbank was more welcoming for Antony Lopez who gathered quite a crowd while battling with the rail for 'Switch Fs Feeble' grind.
