Skateboarding at RMAS?

#1
Hey guys. Passed my main board with merit and leaving for Sandhurst in May and I'm thinking of taking my skateboard with me. Skating is a hobby of mine and I enjoy doing it at weekends and in the evenings. I'm pretty good and can do various tricks, stunts and rail grinds. Sandhurst seems an ideal place for this with it's long stretches of road, rails, steps and walls, I would really like to perform an ollie in front of my fellow cadets on the Main Yard. So on wednesday Afternoon, which is dedicated to sports and when my duties as a Cadet are over and I'm allowed to throw asside my attires and slap on my beanie hat, baggie jeans, Bilabong t-shirt, earings and eyebrow ring will I also be allowed to get the board out my room and go for a skate round camp? I am thinking that most sports are catered for, what about myself and the other EMO cadets who feel uncomfertable playing rugger buggers?

Surely the Army caters for sports like this. I was always told that you could do any sport in the Army and actively encourages sports amongst it's ranks. So would skating round Sandhurst be acceptable? I particlarly fancy having a good sk8 round the drill square.

Wah. I too love skateboarding, and the way you've just described it, your either a wah, or clueless, in which case I'd be ashamed to call you Sir.

I attempted to put some humour into my post, but thing I am serious about is skating.

If you nip over the A.30 (straight out of main gate) you can take advantage of Camberley's fine pedestrian walk ways.

Chaps of your ilk then tend to er..'hang out' in the train at MacDonalds.

I can understand that most chaps in the Armed forces may be more traditional and misunderstand skating, if you had ever performed a rail grind in from of 10 girls you would soon change your mind.

Not true SSgt W**** was often to be seen daffying on the Half pipe at the Queensmead Centre, Farnborough. He was quite good if I recall correctly.

I understand that some officers used meet their young men at the Penny Hill Park, a discrete hotel near Bagshot. I'm sure there was grinding going on there.

Are there any open days at RMAS, where I can invite my crew and we could prehaps put on some kind of skating show to entertain the guests?

Day 1 Week 1 of your commisioning course would be your best bet. Kick, push, kick, push... straight across Old College parade square. High 5 the OC Adjt, then smash one out on the Queen Vic statue.

Certain to make an impression.

I would have a chat with the Academy RSM, a very amenable chap. He's also one of the most senior soldiers in the British Army: so you'll be going straight to the top.

He's also a big fan of Danny Way - but don't say I told you.

High 5 the OC Adjt,
I have done so much high 5ing that it has formed a habit that is hard to break, if someone leaves me hanging, I usually can't control my temper. Will this put me in line for special treatment with the DS, or will they understand how rude it is to leave someone hanging?
