Jono Atkinson’s 2nd trailer for his nearly completed documentary “Over Ply Wood” went live last night. The documentary in the making tells some of the story of the history of skateboarding in Swansea, Wales over the years featuring many skaters who have shredded its many famous spots over the years.
Jono has spent the last few months interviewing all of the skaters involved in the film so expect some fantastic memoirs to come from this. We will bring you the full feature once he sends it all over.
Jono Atkinson has been lurking down in Wales now for a couple of years after relocating from London and has been captivated by their vibrant skate scene ever since. Rather than just soak it up he decided to get amongst it and put a documentary together of what the South Wales scene is doing right now compared the rocking 80’s scene in Swansea when skateboarding exploded with help from footage logged back in the day by Tomsk.
Those who are as old as me as I type this will remember the amazing sessions at the Swansea vert ramp so expect some gems to be dug up. Enjoy this short trailer for now and look out for the DVD very soon.
