Skateboarding Spots
  • Tips on the skateboard park you can use it as a cut through early mornings or in the winter but if you try it in the summer when its packed your gonna get knocked over cause theres not just skateboards
  • everyone knows the park by the academy, Rage against the machine skated there!
  • Stockwell is THE best place at night!! Go there around 9:30 or 10 at night, it's always deserted (place to yourself), there are so many street lights nearby it's almost daylight. The only minor inconvenience is the occasional sleeping drunk person in the bottom of the bowls. They soon wake up as you whizz passed them, most of them want to have a go but I've never let any yet (hey, it might be just like the scene in Big Wednesday and you find you've lent your board to a down-and-out Tony Alva or Bill Danforth, but then again...). Stockwell is also great for 'old school' people to carve around. (Graham on his Powell-Peralta board me on my Alva). Remember it's not the length, it's the width that counts...
  • Skate park on Stockwell Road on the right about fifty yards down from the Academy towards Stockwell. BMX track in Brockwell Park
  • Fairly large area concrete council skatepark. One mellow bowl, assorted bumps, banks, hips and flat area. Lots of fun for local hard-core, with occasional major sessions (like after the '95 Chocolate video premiere). If you're the type of person who is worried by Brixton's reputation you'd be wiser not to go. There's also a small set of moguls in park near Angell Road. Generally full of muck and not used. While you're in the area, you should also take a look at Kennington as well. You can skate between them: follow the one way system to the junction of Stockwell Road and Brixton Road near the park (Police station is on other side of road), turn left and head up the main road into town. You'll come to a big, big junction near Oval tube station. The Kennington bowl is at the far end of the park there.

    There's more information about Stockwell Road in the Slam City Guide.
