Portland Skatepark

So I hear the new skatepark is due to open at Portland, Weymouth.

Here's me at the old one in about '77.

In the shot above I'm struggling with the forces of gravity to keep myself in the snakerun due to my speed, you can see the sheets of plywood laid on the ground in the left of the picture. This is where the more technically skilled riders were able to take a short cut to the next bend in the picture below...

  1. Great pics!
    Nothing has changed over the years. They plonk the crete in and fail to landscape the area properly around it. I think the people from the original Portland park laid the turf around Shoreham.
