Shut Up and Skate, Southsea 2018

A great way to help celebrate 40 years at the legendary venue! The rain held off (just), the crowd gathered and the skating was amazing from all groups.
We had 3 different judges for every group this time, proving that the skaters are keen to keep the scene together by putting something back. So thanks to Jim Langran​, Noddy Rands​, Alex Griffiths​, Lee Blackwell​, Ethan Hardiman Doody​, Nicholas James Rains​, Street Nowik​, Leon Bennett​ for manning the clipboards.
Special mention to Kat Marlow​ for bashing the laptop for hours to keep the scores in order and let us run comps back to back.
MCs Christopher Hudson​ and James Threlfall​ kept things tightly wound and got the crowd pumped all day long. I was briefly allowed to pic up the mic 😉
Toggs on the platform keeping the event on film were Stu Bennett, Gavin Swaffield and Richie Styles with Elliot Mallinson doing the moving pictures.
We had another successful live stream with 50k+ viewers thanks to Brett Dye from The Skateboarding Show and EXTREME making sure there wasn’t a single kickturn missed.

Big Love!

LIVE streaming all competitions on EXTREME

In a first for the UK Independent Vert Series, we’re going to stream all our contests LIVE on the Extreme facebook page throughout the entire 2018 series.

Brett Dye – the intrepid skate reporter from The Skateboarding Show will be your manic commentator to take you through the finals in all three groups. He’ll tell you who’s riding and even have a stab at naming some of the tricks!

The videos will be available on the site long after the comps have happened so you’ll be able to wear out that pause button checking out how rad look look doing rock fakies.

Gearing up for the 2018 season

The 2017 series is over. If you didn’t know that, you’ve been under a rock. There’ll be a break from comps for the next 5/6 months, which will most likely start in April 2018. Keep checking on the website and social feeds for news of the 2018 contest dates.

You’ve probably seen by now that we’ve got a new logo. The old one was never meant to stay very long as it was a rushed-in hack job so that we had something to launch the 2015 season with. It stuck around a while but now we’ve got something with a little more thought behind it and hopefully some longevity to reflect our hope for a long future of the UK Independent Vert Series.

We’re once again aiming to get the best support from familiar brands to help out with prizes for the comps. We always try to make sure everyone who enters gets a prize and that was certainly true in 2017 thanks to Vans. If there is a particular company, brand, shop or organisation you think might like to get involved with the next series, just drop us a an email at

So get your new tricks down, see you on the platform!
