In case anyone is in any doubt... Sorry it's late notice but @southseaskatepark is closed for a little while longer so there's no comp today. 😥 ... See MoreSee Less

Fingers crossed roe Taunton... Who decides that one ? As people are skating it.

We can do one run at a time but you have to go home after your run and check to see if you won later. 😬

Taunton is cool that’s only up the road from me

Brett here - just a quick one to send some love to the vert fam ❤️❤️❤️
Shame I didn’t get chance to stick a camera in your faces and pester you all on the platform last weekend, hopefully I will get the chance to do that by the end of this year.
I hope you are all staying safe and well during these interesting times ❤️❤️❤️

What about later in the year, if things change ?

So it's all a bit shit really. Events are being cancelled all over the place, and while we'd love to define our comps as "essential travel", many people would disagree. We're also at the mercy of our beloved skateparks who will be finding things harder than ever right now.
However, the first comp is too far ahead and things are changing too regularly to make a concrete decision so just hang fire until mid April when we'll have a better idea of the situation.
Stay safe peeps 👊❤️

Anyone fancy running a 2020 comp at Taunton? ... See MoreSee Less

It’s a rad ramp definitely a good idea

We'd need to do it properly and go through the council. I'm not having 100 people turn up only to get kicked out, I'm just not that punk rock anymore 😅 It can sometimes mean a bit of red tape and documentation for safety regulations and insurance (like St Neots) so you'll need to be committed and it may help if you're fairly local but not essential.

Great edit from the #blocklesscombat live feed last week at @creationskatepark Birmingham. Thanks to Biff and the team at Sumo Media 🙏👊👊👊
