DC x Slam Southbank Love Park replica kicker to bin session

DC x Slam recreate the Love Park kicker to bin at Southbank


DC and Slam City Skates put their heads together to come up with a unique way of promoting the DC x Slam City Kalis Lite┬ácollaboration. Using Brian Panebianco’s measurements of the original Love Park obstacle, an exact replica was built and installed at Southbank for a heavy session on March 4th.

Heads from across the UK including James Bush, Dom Henry, James Grindley and Chris Oliver descended on the Undercroft and wrecked shop, all under the watchful eyes of Josh Kalis himself.

Peep the photos and video clip here, then go check out our Josh Kalis & Mike Blabac interview.
Big up all involved.
