Shut Up & Skate

Southsea Skatepark, Southsea

Southsea skatepark is the proud home of the King Ramps “NASS Ramp” – the mobile ramp built by Pete King’s team and used for the well known NASS music and action sports festival.

While it’s not being used for festivals, it lives at the park so the locals can benefit from a real competition standard ramp which has replaced the tired old 9′ transition mini-vert.

For competition goers, there is of course the rest of the legendary park to play on. Concrete snake run, circular bowl and street section make up the rest of the park.


There are pay and display car parks near the sea front but some free street parking is available in the roads a block or two back from the front.

Staying over night

The skatepark are NOT Allowing parking overnight within the grounds. Please see above for alternative parking options.

Shut Up And Skate! Southsea re-born!

As you already know, Southsea Skatepark is the new home of the King Ramps mobile vert ramp and we’ll be competing there on July 31st. What you may not know is that local legend Barry Abrook – 80s/90s vert shredder and former Zorlac team member with his brother Mark – has given us kind permission to resurrect the “Shut Up And Skate” contest name! So, here’s the first flyer under that name. I’m sure we can do it justice and make it a comp to remember…

More info about Southsea Skatepark and the Shut Up And Skate competition here.

Southsea gets the “NASS Ramp” and vert series comp

While we haven’t sorted the fine print yet, we will be running a comp on the 31st July at Southsea Skatepark. This will be Round 2, only one week before St Neots – I know it close but these things happen. Southsea has a lot of stuff going on at their park over the summer so we’re lucky to get in there.

Southsea Skatepark will be permanently hosting the King Ramps mobile vert ramp so it will be unavailable at certain times dependant on other events where it might be required. It will be making its way down after the NASS festival which is 8-10 July.
