Fix To Ride Kennington Bowl
When skaters visit London and want to skate a bit of good old concrete tranny, they usually end up at Stockwell or Meanwhile. Those with a a more fine tuned radar will pick up a subtle gem not far from the Oval cricket pitch named Kennington Bowl. A rectangular shaped playpen, this skateboard relic has seen many a carve and slash by locals and visitors alike. Unfortunately the local council wants to raise the earth it stands upon and close the chapter on this bit of UK history. Luckily Converse and a handful of goodwilled skaters are ready to fight to save their hallowed ground and are holding a skate jam on Saturday 26th May in order to fill the cracks and restoke the fire. If you’re in town, get down and have some fun.
Here is a nice set of photos that show the upgrade.
