Real Skateboards have put together a fantastic tribute video for Bingo who sadly passed away back in February 2011 to create awareness of their Action Realized tribute deck that’s been released to all good UK skate shops this week. A portion of the proceeds of this board will be donated to the British Heart Foundation, to help them continue to fight Heart Disease in the UK.
Watch this video that features many friends in the skate scene of Steven ‘Bingo’ Binks and get involved.

Take 2 mins out of your day to read a wonderful tribute from Focus skate shop last night:
“Feb 9th 2011 saw one of the greatest losses to the UK Skateboarding Community, with the passing of Steven “Bingo” Binks. We as skateboarders lost one of our true Greats! Bingo was a true UK Legend and was friends with so many companies and shops all over the country.
One such strong tie was with Deluxe Distribution and particularly Real Skateboards. Real have honoured Bingo with these limited Action Realised “Bingo” Boards, under their Action Realised scheme giving back to the world through positive actions. With the proceeds of the board sales going to The British Heart Foundation we are giving back to the people that need it through Skateboarding.”
Props to Jim and all at Real for doing this, it’s a wonderful tribute. Look out for these soon in your local SOS and support the cause.
