South bank.

If you’ve ever walked along the Southbank then you’ve undoubtedly passed the skate park. With its hard concrete slopes it has long been branded the “Birthplace of British Skateboarding”. Heavily covered in all sorts of graffiti, it’s home to all sorts of skate boarding enthusiasts (amateurs and professionals alike).  But as of next year it may be gone. The south bank centre has decided that in its place they’ll put a major refurbishment of the Festival Wing (the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward gallery).

 

But with its unmistakable history can something as iconic as this be truly replaced? No! Is our answer! Granted it is a beautiful space, it belongs not only to the young skateboarding generation but also to all those who’ve grown up around the area rather than one organisation!
