April 29th - June 2nd 2006
Distance: 896 miles
Dave's first professional expedition saw him become the first person to skateboard the length of Britain, along the famous End to End route from John O'Groats to Lands End.
The 896 mile skate took 34 days, including 3 rest days to allow some rather digusting blisters to heal. Although much of May 2006 was horrendously wet, the sun was shining on June 2nd when Dave crossed the line at Lands End.
Fortunate that, because the UK skate was just a warm-up for a much longer journey, in a far hotter place.
Dave's travels by skateboard were chronicled in his first book, BoardFree, available worldwide in paperback and e-book.
