Southampton Slamma 17 – Awareness-raising in Southampton
In a collaboration between The Southampton Association of Skateboarders, Beans & Boards and Don’t Rain, an event was held recently in Southampton’s Guildhall Square as both a celebration of the city’s skate scene and as a means to demonstrate the need to improve local skate facilities.
Southampton Slamma 17 saw the Guildhall peacefully taken over by skaters of all ages with jump ramps, many pads and other temporary obstacles which saw heavy sessions throughout the day with skate coaching, barefoot best trick comps and all manner of other activities. Have a look at the clip below and then get involved with the SAOS Skate group to have a say in the provision of local skateboard facilities.
