Lords of the Swords came about from a lack a skate facility in Chelmsford and a skate scene that was on the edge of disappearing. It was 2010 and AJ, Luke, Martin, Daz and Macy were actively part of a committee to get a new skate facility in Chelmsford. They were trying to come up with ideas on how to get every one together and hilight the fact that we have to travel to have a good skate.

AJ came up with the idear of doing a mini King of the road thrasher style competition, he set about righting up some challenges for us and we all got ourselves in to 4 teams. the weekend that we had chosen was pouring with rain but there was no turning back. We all met up at the White Bar carpark behind the viaducts in Chelmsford, waiting for AJ to turn up with the challenge sheet…

We had so much fun doing the competition that we decided to hold another one that year bigger badder and better and invite all of our friends from around the surrounding essex area and we called it Lords of the Swords, based on the 3 swords of the Essex County badge.
