Southsea Skatepark – Transition Documentary

Ph: Ben Schroeder’s infamous transfer

benschroeder_transfer_southsea_1991_Southsea’s magical sea-front skatepark has been revisited in a new web documentary that delves into the park’s cherished history.

This park, that is still open today, was an epicenter for skateboarding back in the 80s and hosted some of the most legendary events in UK skate history, from Shut Up and Skate to demo’s from the Powell team, who were at their peak at the time.

Get the teas on for six minutes of reminiscing with Don Brider and more locals. The only downside is wanting more!

Southsea was recently paid homage to in a new book on 80s skating in the UK. Head here for the sweets.
