Rest in Peace Steven 'Bingo' Binks

[caption id="attachment_238" align="aligncenter" width="550" caption="Photo courtesy of Sam Ashley"][/caption] Steven 'Bingo' Binks, a great friend and one of the greatest people ever, passed away on Wednesday. He was 36 years old. It's taken some time to try and write about Bingo but everything you could write, seems as though it would never be enough. He was a pillar of not just the North East skate scene or of UK skateboarding but skateboarding everywhere. A huge and tragic loss. Thank you kindly for your inspiration, friendship and advice.

He will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

In celebration of the life and memory of Bingo, the Teeside locals have got together to give him a send off skate. There will be a huge session at Five Bridges in Gateshead this coming Sunday. Please visit the Facebook event page which has more information and discussion about the day.

Check out the fresh paint in honour of the great man. Amazing. Rest in Peace Bingo!
