Stockwell Skatepark awarded Asset of Community Value by Lambeth Council

Friends of Stockwell Skatepark reach first milestone.

After only being in existence for less than three months the Friends of Stockwell Skatepark, an organisation of the park's local Skaters and BMX riders, has succeeded in having the historic 1970's skatepark listed as an Asset of Community Value by Lambeth Council.

This is the first step in the ongoing push by FoSS to keep the skatepark safe and in good condition for current riders and future generations of Stockwell Skatepark users.  It's important that anyone who uses the park now, in the past or who plans to in the future lends their support to the on-going campaign to keep one of the best skateparks in the world here, rideable and safe for years and decades to come.

Rich Gilligan: DIY Book

Rich Gilligan launched his DIY book last night with a show at Beach London. The show was rad, we drank whiskey and ginger to keep warm and talked photo's, concrete, riding bikes in winter and of course the only way the brits can: 'talk about the weather'.. I recommend that if you didn't go last night to get to the gallery and take a look for yourself. Rich has worked on this book over the last 4 years and all the hard work has paid off because this one beautiful book of landscapes of reclaimed land for a soul purpose to shred.

7th October: Skate Fest...

Good News Everybody! Chris Coupe has gotten in touch and asked if OOS would like to get involved with this Summer Twilight Skate Fest. Obviously we said no, but make it down as I'm sure there will be much going on. Look out for 'The Saturday Night Roll-over' (a most absurd obstical) and other death defying ramps made by the amatures at OOS....See you there!

Thank you Will Robson Scott for making this video of a true icon of the London skateboarding fraternity. I have been skateboarding in and around the city of London for nearly 20 years, in that time Graeme has always been there. His passion and intimate knowledge of the skateboarding industry in general is remarkable. Though he may not remember your name, he will always be there to reminisce and roll about with you checking out what's underneath everyones feet and having a go to see how it rides. Big up Graeme,
may your skating days be a-plenty.

"Have fun skating!" - Graeme.

Just wanted to say thank you to Whip for letting us use this photograph for the "IN STOCK" exhibition flyer. The photograph was taken around this time last year, the snow had melted and Whip, Bennett and me made a brave attempt at drying a section to squeeze a skate in. We tried

Stockumentry Teaser: LOVE N SKATE

As part of the out of stock exhibition, we will be producing a short documentary. Over the forth coming weeks we will be interviewing the artists and providing little snippets of the action for your viewing pleasure. Last week we interviewed LOVENSKATE's very own Stuart Smith. We caught up with him at his studio where we were, screen printing, talking, interveiwing, filming, drinking tea, eating soup and generally getting down with the radness of it all, thanks to all involved. Below is a little tease of what is to come...
