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.

Please check the map below for some local campsites. There are plenty of hotels nearby.

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!

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.
