Inspired by the Wide Boyz (http://wideboyz.blogspot.co.uk) we've got a list of local (i.e. Yorkshire) off widths together.

You could do all the training and preparation as in the Wide Boyz blog, or if like us you are too lazy then just rely on your bloody mindedness and have a go!



Some off width videos to learn technique and for motivation -
