Blockless Combat Page

Creation Skatepark (formerly Epic) in Birmingham is lucky enough to be a hotspot for vert skating in the UK. Probably due to is central position, it enjoys regular sessions several days a week with sometimes between 10 and 15 skaters on the platform. It has also hosted the longest running vert comp still going; Blockless Combat, which pre-dates this incarnation of the UK Vert Series by 4 years, having started in 2003.

The venue itself also has a large wooden bowl next to the vert ramp which is sometimes used on competition day for some extra fun. The bowl has seen a no-holds-barred super-fast jam format (2013) and a kids only competition (2014), both of which were a great end to the main competition.

Blockless Combat has become the highlight of the vert series calendar, usually closing off the year as a final event. Run by Sean Goff and Paul “Jim the skin” Atkins who both sponsor the comp with their respective shops Toddtwist and Ride Coventry – it’s an event not to be missed.
