Wednesday night is Skateboards only at BaySixty6

Good news for skateboarders comes officially from Bay Sixty 6 skate park this week in that the good, old Wednesday night session is finally back to being a skateboards only affair.

Since the re-opening, Wednesday nights have been shared with fruit-booters who have made it their own night out, which has seen the traditional sesh become somewhat frustrating. Following various chats with ourselves in here and local skaters, the Bay owners have now made Wednesday night an official skateboard night only, every week, so get down there and enjoy it.
