Sunday 12 May 2013


It rained so we headed in search of some sun...

We had a skate at this spot which is pretty rad as spots go....

 The weather was looking a bit ominous again, we had heard about a pace called the skatehouse in Lewes so thought we would check it out...

The place is awesome full concrete bowl which is beautiful to skate, if you get a chance i recommend you go skate it and support..

 They also have a massive expanse out the back which they are planning on adding a street course to.

Grosvenor & Hilbert Lottery Grant

Now I may have been hiding under a rock, or it may have completely passed me by, until I saw a tweet mentioning that the TWBC has been awarded funding by Heritage Lottery Fund to develop detailed proposals for the future of Grosvenor & Hilbert Park. This amount being 2.7 million.

I had heard a small rumour that the skatepark was going to have some improvments made to it, so eagely clicked on the link to the plans only to scroll down looking for mentions of the skatepark. Unsuprisingly i found the skatepark on the drawings, looked at the legend to be met with the text 'Existing skatepark to be retained'. 

So the skatepark has been overlooked in the current multi million pound redevelopment.

 Now i understand that the skatepark was probably one of the last pieces in the park to be redeveloped, but look at what we where left with. Gravity came into create the new park, which was great news as they are well established in the park building market. However as I understand there was nothing in the budget for a new tarmac surface, so the metal ramps where deposited on top of the old tarmac surface. Leaving the park uneven and where metal should supposedly meet concrete, graps causing a danger for us skateboarders and killing off the flow of the park.

If this was bad enough the ramps almost looked like they hadnt been completed with metal edges leaving lips around the side of the blocks where there shouldnt be any, therefore hindering any sort of manual on a manual pad or grind. Now go to the majority of newly developed parks in the country and you will not see as much of a shambles for a 'newly developed' skatepark. Especially considering that the new developments of skateparks in the contry the standard is high, it appears TWBC is behind.

I guess we have pullled the short straw and very much been over looked, especially considering the large budget and the majority of other areas getting an overhaul. Are us as skateboarders just not worthy of being included in these developments?

There is an online survey that you can put your opinions of development HERE

Save Southbank

Southbank the unofficial home of British skateboarding is under threat, always a start off point for missions into the city. I do moan about this spot sometimes but secretly love it. 

Head over to the site specifically set up for details on information of how you can help save it from being demolished when they redevlop the area to put in some more coffee shops by clicking the image below....

Also fill out the official Southbank survey, they are bragging that they have had loads of positive feedback so do your bit and make sure that changes. The questions are cleverly done so that it works out that you cant give too bad a feedback but when you get to the end you can fill out a text area letting them know how you feel.
