Fix To Ride

Feature

May, 2012

Kennington Bowl, London.

Converse Skateboarding presented it first ever Fix To Ride event in the UK on Saturday 26th May at Kennnigton Bowl, London.

This historic bowl had become pretty much unskateable due to the huge cracks and uneven surface that have developed over the past thirty five years since it’s initial launch. It was the perfect location for refurbishment under the Fix To Ride program.

After an amazing build time of just two weeks, the new look bowl was launched at mid-day to an excited crowd who had gathered for the launch and to witness an epic UK Converse Skateboarding dealer competition. The UK’s top skate stores did battle against each other until Rollersnakes was crowned the winner and picked up the £1000 winning cheque!

The sun was beaming down on the amazing crowd as skaters such as Converse Ambassadors Pontus Alv, Rory Milanes, Harry Lintell and Jerome Campbell tore into the new bowl and deemed it an unbelievable improvement.

The bowl has now been handed back to the community and open and free to skate. It is located at the northern end of Kennington Park, nearest tube is Kennington Park on the Northern Line. We hope you enjoy it!
