Build your best skate spot with Red Bull DIY

Josh Rosenberg - Lifestyle

Summer holidays just got way more interesting thanks to Red Bull who have delivered bags of concrete and tools to 17 independent UK skate shops this week for you to go and pick up for free and build your own DIY skate spot.

The best spot built over the next 2 months will be judged by an expert panel and the winning crew will receive a free skate trip to Bulgaria. Note that the winning crew is said to be made up of no more than 3 people.

Check the list below to see if your local skateshop has been delivered the goods and get planning. Once you have built your spot, you need to send photos to to enter.

The competition will be running from July 25th September 25th after which the DIY Tour will take place between 4-8th October (TBC). The top spots will get a visit from a team of top skaters, giving the crews the opportunity to ride the spot they have created with some of the top UK skaters.
