Dean Lane skatepark

IN 2019 I MADE A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE HISTORY OF DEAN LANE SKATEPARK. THE FILM WAS PREMIERED AT HOUSE OF VANS IN LONDON AND HOSTED ON THRASHER MAGAZINE.

IN 2020 WE ARE RAISING FUNDS TO EXTEND AND IMPROVE THE PARK. YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ON OUR GO FUND ME PAGE.

2016

The 2016 Fix Up Comp took place between the 15th and 18th Sept. Teams of 4 skaters battled it out over 3 days to produce the most ridiculous 2minute skate edit possible. All films are then premiered on the Sunday night where teams vote for a winner.

The competition was epic with three days of sunshine and non stop hammers across the city. Everyone made it to the finish line with a completed film.

Thank you to all the teams who entered. It’s nothing without your effort. Big up everyone who came out to the Premier nigh. Massive thank you to Tom Sparey, Callum Painter and Harry McCulloch for taking loads of wicked photos throughout the weekend. You can see them all in a gallery below the films. Finally a massive shout out to all the sponsors for hooking up some rad prizes.

CAMPUS POOL

CAMPUS POOL IS AN INDEPENDENTLY RUN SKATEPARK IN SOUTH BRISTOL. OVER THE YEARS I HAVE FILMED VARIOUS VIDEO CONTENT DOCUMENTING THE EVOLUTION FROM OLD SWIMMING POOL TO FULLY FUNCTIONING SKATEPARK, BAR, CAFE, EVENT SPACE.

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. 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!!
