This isn't a business, but it's nice to see the UK vert scene is growing. It can only mean we'll see more great skaters coming out of the UK and more vert progression. Sponsors take note! 😉👍🙏🇬🇧

Further to what Mr Marlow has said, I'd like to add the following:
It has been a real pleasure and an honour to be involved in the Vert Series this year and hopefully I'll be involved next year as well. For those of you that are interested, not only did we have a record number of participants but as an example, the A Group Finals live feed from Birmingham on the EXTREME Facebook page is currently on 20 THOUSAND views. The world is seeing what an amazing Vert scene we have in the UK.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED FOR MAKING IT SO AMAZING!
Much love from Brett

2018 will definitely be one to remember. We had the most skaters EVER - 114, which is up nearly 30% on last year. The youngest B Group winner (George), the oldest Masters winner (soz Dave), and a first time A Group winner (Jimmy). This just shows the scene is not only strong, but growing fast and there's a LOT of new talent to help it prosper in the years to come.

The comps went really smoothly thanks directly to the fact that more people are helping out. I can't list everyone here but you know who you are - judges, announcers, filmers, designers, admin, photographers... the list goes on - thank you!

Our sponsors are the reason we can do this - we love you all and can't thank you enough, but we'll be on the phone again soon! 😉 Vans, ProTec, Pig City, Speedlab, Hoax. <3

Next year will just get better and we're already planning some interesting changes so keep tuned over the winter for juicy updates.

The full series results are up on the site as usual, or best viewed here if you're on mobile: app.vertseries.com.

If you've missed any of our comps this year, you'll have no doubt appreciated the live streams hosted and filmed by Brett Dye at The Skateboarding Show. Or... you may have had the privilege of watching yourself back after taking part. Either way, it's something we've never had the benefit of until now and it's a massive feature of this year's series!
I hope you'll all join me in thanking Brett for all he's been doing, oh... and well done for the drop in this weekend!
Also, of course thanks to EXTREME for helping us reach a massive audience by directly publishing or sharing those streams. 🙏👍
Go checkout Brett's interview videos on the website or YouTube for a real insight into UK skateboarding from a different angle.
