It varries depending on time of day/traffic/how smashed I am.

I feel most comfertable in shopping centers, in the afternoon. Playing shopper hockey..

It has to be the road everytime, I don't give a toss how much traffic there is.
The only time I skate on the pavement is when I'm having a munch or something like that. I really don`t think it is fair on the peds to skate fast on the pavement, and as you all know, I like to skate fast.

Mixture of pavement and road in Oxford St, London at night...again depends on traffic of both pedestrian and street (but it's oh so smoot'!)

You'll find me there everynight (when it's dry) on my way out/home

I would have to say if I were doing distance, I would prefer the road. If I am just doing tricks and such I like the pavement. Definitly parks for grinds or freeriding.

For travelling from A to B then roads are often best but for having a bit of fun and playing pedestrian slalom then pavements are great fun. My favourite street skate is still Oxford Street pavements between 8-10pm (but only the section west of Oxfrord Circus).

Really!!! bloody hell. Do you get any hassle from drivers when skating on the road (as in people telling you to get off the road etc)
