The Copenhagen skatepark remains, the vert there will go. You have until May 2014 for one more warm cruise in the centrally heated air. Do you know any other indoor parks with central heating?

I’d like to thank and remember all of the people associated with this place and I look forward to see what comes in place of Bo Larsens ramp. “size does matter”

Cheers guys.

Grip Tape & Grazed Knees

We Don't Have Trouble Sleeping.

Spending most of my weekends working in a skate shop, I reckon it’s worth posting a bit about the skate scene in Cardiff. There has been a pretty thriving skate scene in south Wales for some time now. Cardiff itself is home to a number of Skate shops tucked away in the city centres arcades, the longest running being City Surf, an independent store which been around since 1986. As the interest in extreme sports such as skateboarding continues to grow, places like Cardiff are beginning to see the positive effects.

Cardiff is rapidly becoming a thriving hub for the skate scene in south Wales with a number of new skate parks popping up. The barrage skate plaza in Cardiff bay offers a nifty little street park specifically designed by skateboarders for the skateboarders. It see’s action most of the year round (weather permitting) and is usually heaving on a…

Drinking real ale and skateboarding for a good cause

SQUARE GAME

Boatyard Seasonal Jams, Feb 2014

Here’s a video filmed and edited by Rich Sibley from an awesome event to raise much needed funds to improve Falmouth skatepark, which I hasten to add is in dire need of improvement.

Hosted by Seasonal jams it was held at The Rebel Brewing company in Penryn.

It only cost a fiver to get in and there was a marvellous selection of locally brewed ales at only £2.50 a pint. Needless to say the event was super fun and a massive success, helping to raise money and awareness about the need for better skateboard facilities in falmouth.

Seasonal jams are looking at hosting regular events like this is the future so keep your eyes out for that.

You can check out the campaign to get a new skatepark on facebook here: Get Falmouth a new skatepark!

The event was supported by Sessions Surf & Skate…

When I’m to Lazy to Skate

Cameron Revier is one of my favorite pro skaters.  I like his style, his tricks, and how fast he skates.  I like this video because it is up-beat, exciting and filmed at the Venice Beach skate park.  One of the best parts of watching Revier skate is how his long hair whips around when he does tricks.  It adds that extra little topping to his style, and makes watching him skate even more fun.

This video is super sick.  It puts together the highlights of all the videos this company (Blood Orange) made all year.  It is mostly fast freeride and Downhill longboarding with some of the best skaters in the industry.  Most of the shots were filmed in Laguna Beach and San Francisco.

This video was just posted by the company today.  I chose to put this video up not because it is crazy good, but…

Skatepark opens, while landscaping works continue

Skateboard

Local skaters can now practise their tricks at Lichfield’s brand new skatepark in Beacon Park!

Following the completion of the first phase of the project, Lichfield District Council has opened Beacon Park’s skatepark, which can now be used by skaters.

The second phase of the project got underway in February, which includes landscaping the area with grass, trees and plants. This will continue throughout March.

Councillor Andrew Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “We’re still putting the finishing touches to the skatepark but know that skaters are itching to use the facility so we’ve opened it up to them earlier than planned, while we complete the landscaping. We hope everyone enjoys using it, but we would ask everyone to keep to the paths when getting to and from the skatepark, to give the grass a good…

Longboarding site coming to South Surrey

News in Surrey

South Surrey Athletic Park will be the place to be for longboarders in Surrey starting next month.

City council has approved a temporary longboarding site at the park with the aim of keeping longboarders off city streets and helping young boarders learn how to ride safely from those experienced in the sport.

The pilot project will run from April to September 2014.

“We’re going to have actual lessons from experienced longboarders…teaching safety around longboarding, and trying to get longboarders that have been using public streets to engage in this pilot project within the park,” said Coun. Linda Hepner.

The origin of this pilot project dates back to Oct. 16, 2013, when a delegation of local board riders and Surrey RCMP Const. Troy Derrick spoke to Surrey’s park, recreation and sport tourism committee about the need for a designated area for longboarding in the city.
