Richard Bartlett of Gravity has today started his epic march from our offices in Romsey to 10 Downing Street! - Aiming to raise awareness for the UK’s lack of quality skate terrain!
Rich’s bid to meet David Cameron has taken months of planning and our man is now on schedule to ‘drop in’ on Britain’s top decision maker! The eighty mile effort should take Rich and his support team a few days to cover, and we fully expect the ‘eye of the tiger’ to be booming out as the sweat pours!
You can check Rich's progress and show your support for this man sized effort here.
Good Luck Rich !!!
Nigel Mansell has dropped in to open Cardiffs new skate plaza! The stunning new facility was all about bringing the next generation of skatepark design to reality and giving thousands of local riders a place to call home. Gravity worked closely with the Cardiff Skateboard Club, and Matt Pritchard from TV show Dirty Sanchez and the outcome has blown everyone away.
Ipath pro rider Danny Dicola, the man of few words- 'this is probably the best plaza set up I've seen.'
After much hard work and campaigning locals from Stonehaven in Scotland have finally recieved their Gravity Skatepark. The facility which consists of a bowl with street section was officially opened by local rippers: Colin Adam, Dunder, Neil Kellas, Ross 'Shezz' McSherry, Rab Milne, Angus Morrison, Dang, Colin Young and Dan G.

Gravity has begun work on a cutting edge plaza designed with the input of local riders. The new facility mixes some slick lines with traditional plaza elements and has a tiered section to keep your roll on!. Gravity Director Brendan Jarvis says " I love this part of the world and this new facility will keep us coming back for sure. The design caters for all abilities and even oldies like myself can have a great time carving around". The opening event will be late November with VANS riders in attendance.

Skatepark campaigners from Cheddar have been given the go-ahead for a bowl addition to thier already state of the art skatepark supplied by Gravity. The existing facility has a seriously original layout which features brick banks, a curved top grind ledge and a rounded flat bank hip, the new elbow bowl addition completes one hell of a skatepark for local riders.

Renfrew has recieved one of the largest concrete skateparks in Britain!
The facility was designed and built by Gravity after close consultation with riders from the local area. Gravity's head of design Marc Churchill says; the group had an initial concept which we complimented with some well worked features and textures. The pool coping with mosaic tiles is something I will personally drive the length of Britain to skate! and the diamond hip is another favorite as it keeps tempting some wicked transfers between bowls. The park also has a raised brick extention and a vert extension blended into a driveway Hubba, some seriously original terrain!
