Sponsored skate old and new. Gnarly Mag too.

2 Apr

The Great Sponsored Skate is back at the beginning of May. Back in 1986 Tomsk was making his Gnarly Mag zine, a few pages of Issue 2 are reproduced below. The layouts and content are great and cover plenty of the laval Swansea scene, trips to comps and ramps around the UK, interviews with skaters (Bod Boyle in this issue), Pics and writing from Seb in Santa Barbera….a ton go great stuff and all that for free too. Check out the scans and if anyone is interested in seeing more of the zine comment below and i’ll post some more scans. The Sponsored skate picture shows exactly who too part in the first one back in 86….let’s see how many of those guys we can get to skate again this year!! The video below is an advert for this year’s skate and is made up of clips from the original one and the more recent ones that have been happening for the past few years. Let’s make 2018 the biggest yet. All money raised goes to Exist/C.U.S.P. to keep our amazing indoor park open.
