Tom Isted, as mentioned below, is a machine. He can and will throw down tricks everywhere, on anything, and land clean. He was doing some of the maddest runs at Bob Manchester's The Yard Jam last year, will no doubt be smashing it at Mongoose Jam UK next month and recently went nuts at The Baskett Yard. Here's the machine known as Tom Isted collaborating with another machine...
The 1970's digger was resurrected from the dead, but still needs to be hot-wired to start the engine.
Tom actually wanted to bombdrop off the other bucket, despite the fact that it's way smaller, more wobbly and has nothing to hold onto!
We only had a couple of hours to shoot photos. This is one of ten we got in that time. Tom is a machine.
We had to remove a fence to get the digger close enough to the ramp, but it was worth the effort.
The other side of the hedge were loads of sheep and pigs. They were all really noisy and didn't sound too happy.
