Huge thanks to the randombastards for hooking us up with some of the local rippers, great to meet all you guys and thanks for coming into the forest. Here is some shots from the night by Oskar Sandström, enjoy.
Some construction shots of the sculpture that we have been making as part of this commision from grolschstudios.se
A bit more downtown, and is the skateboard bit of the CONS project LND. The design was done as a collaboration with Jerome Campbell, one of the brand ambassadors of Cons. And the idea was to create a street that is a collection of sought after skate spots, tweaked to become better to skate. We then drew up all the objects and master plan to make sure it all worked together for it to be built in the UK.
The build was done by a group of talented folk from The Scenery Shop, based out in Sussex. All of the objects were built offsite, then with an intense three day onsite build. It was a pleasure working with all the crew: Alex Peters, Alex Avantis, Alan Hayes, Rob Smith, Lars Lauritzen, Harriet Lumby, Eddy Llewellyn, Elliot Dawes, Jos Carroll, Tom Roy Sue Puckett, Natalie red Perkins, Candy Tomlinson, Tim and captain Si Carroll, the end result was hyper real, and a blur between reality and fiction.

Rich has been picked to be the first to take part in a new initiative by grolschstudios.se. Watch this space for progress updates.
Here are some more results of a three month residency by Oavsett, they were here to create, film and produce the below leaders among other shenanigans.
For the last 8 months we have been working together with the professor Iain Borden and then the appointed architect Soren Nordal Enevoldsen to realise a new space at The Southbank centre, on the river Thames in London. This public space has been designed in the sprit of the current skatable location, but has been tweaked to be really great for skateboarding.
This space will be made from high quality materials consisting of mostly granite slabs, and bricks, it has been legally guarantee for this use for 125 years, and the design allows for change, adaption and re-appropriation.
Many thanks for the input from all the skaters, bmxers and artist who came to the public meetings, and the others involved in the focus group meetings. We all hope that this design will help preserve the integrity of the cultures involved for the foreseeable future.
