“The end of one of the best indoor skate parks in the UK”. - Lewis Blackburn.

What’s the story?

As many of you will know we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the Rush Skatepark open. However despite our best efforts the facility has now closed. It’s a tragedy for our local community and riders of the south west.

One Last Rush - Rollerblading Jam (2013 - 2021) by Lewis Blackburn

But we’re not giving up. Our plan is to create a new facility to fill the void. To do that we need to raise a sizeable sum for planning permission to get started but in the first off, initially we want to try to raise £25,000 through this Crowdfunder.

What we need to do

The loss of the skate park is going to hit the community hard, especially in the winter months. The parents, riders and supporters of Rush (also known as the ‘Friends of Rush Skatepark’) want to ensure we have a state of the art indoor Olympic standard facility in Gloucestershire to serve the county, the south west and nationally. We want to be the park that ‘must be visited’ attracting attention across the globe.

This is down to us now. We have the support of Jerry and Michelle Norman (the owners of Rush) and their brilliant team. We know we can count of them to help make this a reality but it isn’t their job to raise the money. We are happy to step up and take on the challenge and we ask you to join us on this journey!

We need to find a suitable site and then get planning permission. Stroud District Council have offered land at Stratford Park in Stroud but we need to fund a planning application and this is likely to cost way in excess of £200,000. We’re going to try and raise the first £95,000 through Crowdfunder by offering rewards and bringing the community together through the platform.

It’s so important to keep the legacy alive. With your support, we can make happen. […] Check Crowdfunder.co.uk/skatepark.

Usd Sway 60 XXI Rolling Review with Sam Crofts (August 2021)

Usd Sway 60 XXI Rolling Review with Sam Crofts (August 2021)

Sam Crofts skates the new USD Sway 60 XXI in the Mile End Skatepark in East London and talks about the new features the skate has!

Don’t underestimate the USD Sway 60 XXI. Once considered an entry-level aggressive inline skate, the newly designed Sway with a sleek minimalist style is a capable, durable aggressive skate you can count on. An inline skate doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective. The USD Sway 60 XXI has a minimalist, reliable hard boot that’s designed to take on even the most demanding conditions. Complemented with a supportive cuff, comfortable liner, and a shock absorber that will help you land big grinds and even bigger grinds with confidence. Whether you’re just getting into aggressive inline skating, or you’re a veteran skater looking for a capable, durable skate that can take a beating, the USD Sway 60 XXI is an excellent option. It comes with the proven KIZER Fluid V frame that’s designed for flat setups, giving you plenty of speed and stability, while incorporating a large central grind area that’s perfect for flat setups. Rolling on long-lasting USD 60mm wheels and WICKED ABEC 7 bearings, there’s a lot to love about the USD Sway 60 XXI aggressive skate.

Photo of the Day: Billy Murton (August 2021) - New VOD in the Making

New V.O.D in the making. This one is going to be a full length, 10 or so minutes long section! All filmed in my home town Plymouth. I’m going to try and capture all the history, hidden treasures, interesting spots, hammers and everything else this beautiful city has to offer. This is a still from one of the first clips I got, filmed at an old gun station behind Bovisand fort, this fort was built in the 1860s as a defence against the threat posed by Napoleonic France. Let’s just say this rail wasn’t the safest! - Billy Murton (Photo).
