Here We Are!

WOW! It's been a busy few months for us, this first post I'm going to try and quickly bring you up to speed on what has happened at Skateport...

We did all of the shop fitting ourselves so I'd like to give a shoutout to Ian for all his hard work in the lead up to the opening!

The opening event went really well, we had a pro demo from Jake Anderson and Ben Grove and then a jam format comp with loads of prizes up for grabs and spaces on the team. We were made up to see so many local skaters there to show support and take part in the comp. Jake and Ben both killed it on the day as did the skaters in the comp. MC for the day was Skateport rider and Bowl-Head Skateboards owner Sean Mollan.

We now have our team, you can read a bit about each person over on our website HERE.

We took our first team trip to Deeside (click pic below for album)

Aimy Brady took part in an all girl photoshoot at UK SKATEpark for 4Q magazine, and also broke her wrist skating vert, but she said it won't stop her skating.

Steve Melia and Chris Langford travelled up to Scotland for the first leg of the UK Independent Vert Series in North Berwick.

We linked up with local band 'They're Coming To Get You Barbara' and had a team night out at their EP launch in Liverpool!

And as if we hadn't done enough already we are going to London next week to meet Danny Way and to film at Bay 66 Skatepark and maybe a few other spots!

Keep an eye on this blog for pics and details of what else we get up to, also don't forget to Post your pics on facebook for the sticker comp! CLOSING DATE: SUNDAY 29th April. win a KARMA deck!
