The Why Not? Blog

At the tender age of 25 Dave started skateboarding. 14 months later he became the first person to skate the length of Britain. Another 8 months on he had crossed Australia on his board, breaking a world record & raising over £20,000 for three charities. Now, at 27, he's writing his first book, is a motivational speaker and a businessman, and he's only just gotten started on a lifetime of challenges which from the outside look just darn crazy. So, why? You know the answer, don't you. Why not?

Made It!!

At 1:30 this afternoon I rolled across the finish line at Land's End after skating 895 miles from John o'Groats. Over the next few days I'll be putting up photos and videos from the rest of the BoardFree UK journey, as well as writing a fuller blog of this amazing day.

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported BoardFree: the team and their families, friends and strangers and all of our sponsors who believed in one man and his crazy dream!

It's not a dream anymore! Here's to BoardFree UK...

    Congratulations to Dave, Elsa and the Boardfree crew - an amazing and unique feat. You've brought a tear to my eye, well both eyes actually. You're doing such a good thing for such a worthy cause. You're skate legends now - bring on Oz!
