Bath’s Royal Victoria Park has been a staple meet up for locals in the area for decades. The vert ramp that once stood tall brought legendary sessions, copious amounts of folklore and also launched a few memorable names too.

The build, funded by North East Somerset Council didn’t hold back when it came to their support of this project. With new design plans coming from locals in a strong user group and the council’s will to go big, they’ve ended up with a reputable park that should serve generation after generation.

Since it was redeveloped by Canvas Spaces and opened to the public on the 26th September the new concrete has had visitors coming from afar to check it out. Josh Young was pretty much the first to get some footage on the new bowl. Canvas Spaces’ super smooth ‘crete supplied the tools whilst Josh made it look easy.

Veteran ripper Sean Goff also made a trip there from his hometown of Oxford and vowed that it’s “well worth a visit”. A lot of bowls are being built around the UK but “most of it is small though. This is one of the few decent size bowls built this year.” Scroll down for his footage.

The NPNG crew from Bournemouth laid down this new edit for Danny Bulmer’s lens to give you a good understanding of the hubba, ledge and stair set up near the bowl. Nicky Porter, Tobias Moors, Todd Langdon and Alex Tibble all in the mix with Bulmer too. Have a good look around and plan your trip soon before the winter arrives.

KING FOR THE CRACK VIDEO EDIT COMP!

This year, Axe Distribution rolled out a comp inspired firstly by Thrasher’s annual King of the Road jaunt, and an Irish comp of similar name. The competition’s aim was to involve small underground skateboard companies who do not usually get to compete in such events in the UK. It was never about the end result, but all about skaters getting involved and have a laugh, i’m sure you will see this reflected in the six video edits below. Various tasks were set for each team to complete, as you will discover in each edit.

The winners of King For The Crack will be decided by popularity via facebook likes. Remember, you can vote for as many edits as you like, just click on the red links below to find the videos for each team.

The voting will end at 12 midday, Friday 29th of June revealing one winner. Get voting!

 

Danny Bulmer wins the winter video edit comp!

South Coast skater/filmer Danny Bulmer has won the 2012 Winter Video Edit comp.

Over 16,000 people visited the pages over the last 2 weeks to watch these edits. From those, over 6000 votes were cast across all 12 videos. Danny’s video edit took 2211 votes for his work filming the local Bournemouth crew, NPNG and friends who defied the crap, British weather over a 2 month period from January this year to skate and film for this.

Danny will take £200 from the comp as overall winner but was given a run for his money from Sirus F Gahan whose edit filmed across spots in Bristol, Bournemouth and Brighton. Third place with 700 votes came from Elliot Tebbs who is currently working on a scene video with the skateboarders of Nottingham.

Next week we will have another video vote feature coming on the site from the Axe Distribution camp so look out for that. In the meantime, watch Danny Bulmer’s edit that features Nicky Porter, Craig Loveless, Pete Bellman, Ben Grant, Louis Richards, Jake Randall, Tommy Fachiri, Alex Tibble, Bill Hillary, Todd Langdon, Bailie King, Nick Benavidez, Barnaby Fisher-Smith, Tom Lawson and Zak Gibert.

Bournemouth’s Tranny Jam drops its drawers

The Bournemouth crew are a pretty unique bunch, always down for a session and always up for having a bloody good laugh.

This weekend the NPNG and friends were all involved in a Tranny Jam hosted on the concrete of their local at Kings Park bringing much laughter and some hilarious outfits to boot. Look out for a video edit soon as no doubt it will be priceless when it drops!
