CAMPUS SKATE PARKS ARE PURE DIY. THEY STARTED FROM NOTHING AND THROUGH HARD WORK AND DETERMINATION ANDRE AND TIM NOW RUN TWO FULLY FUNCTIONING INDOOR PARKS IN BRISTOL.
HERE IS THE FINAL SESSION IN THE OLD POOL BEFORE IT WAS REINCARNATED AS A SKATEPARK:
ONCE THE PARK WAS BUILT CAMPUS POOL OPENS IT’S DOORS TO THE PUBLIC ON THE 26th JULY 2015. CHECK OUT THE PRE OPENING EDIT. BIG THINGS FOR THE BRISTOL SKATE SCENE. RESPECT LADS.
THE LOCK IN SESSIONS GIVE CREWS A CHANCE TO SKATE THE PARK AFTER HOURS. WE WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO FILM THE DC UK LOCK EDIT. IT WENT OFF!!
Fix Up Skate Competition 2015 – Build it, Skate it, Film it, Edit.
The brief was simple. Create a two minute film focused on skateboarding and having fun. Last weekend sixteen teams spent three days getting creative in the sunshine, armed with a video camera, a “loose” storyline and a large dose of enthusiasm. It doesn’t seem to take much to encourage skateboarders to put on some fancy dress and take to the streets.
The inaugural year of the Fix Up Skateboard Competition was amazing. Skaters of all ages and styles signed up and of the 16 teams that entered everyone made it to the finish line.
The films were premiered at The Cube cinema with the teams voting on each other’s productions. There was such a wide variety of films produced over the weekend, but somehow the teams managed to whittle it down to the top three. No words are needed, just sit back and enjoy.
Winner: Team Kez – The Poacher Man
2nd Place: Rock Solid – Refill The Dream
3rd Place: Two Bit Co – Helms Kitchen

A massive thank you to all the teams that entered the competition. It’s nothing without all your hard work and creativity.
