As told by Mike Escamilla

"I'd decided to go to a wedding in Ireland and figured I'd stop by United in Hastings for a couple days on my way over to work on a project we have coming out end of the year (I'm really excited about with this one). I didn't bring a bike or pads or anything and figured it would be nice to just come hang for 2 days. When i got there I spotted 'that' photo of Owain Clegg carving this massive capsule. I had seen the photo before on instagram (Editors note: DIG readers may remember our magazine shot of Owain riding this back in 2007) and always planned to go there someday but i'd no idea where it was. Now I was stoked to find out that it wan't actually too far away me. After a day of pestering Ian (Morris) about going I finally convinced him we headed off. Surprisingly it was easy to find and after a short hike and water crossing later we were there. It was a lot bigger then i thought it would be... in fact it was massive, and although we could only really carve back and forth this little adventure was everything I love about BMX: exploring spots with your friends, having a laugh and ultimatley being stoked. Although the sun was in a horrible place for photos heres a couple we shot. It turned out to be just as rad as I ever imagined." -Mike Escamilla #betheadventure
