Bristol Board Meeting 2018 – What a blast!

26Oct

This year’s Bristol Board Meeting was a blast!

Around 100 skaters turned up for a day out on boards of all shapes and sizes in perfect weather.

Update 26/10/2018:

A couple of raffle winners have very kindly agreed to re-donate their prizes in order to raise even more money for Clic Sargent!

So we’re running a competition for the most amount of money raised via the event.

  • 1st Prize: The person who raises the most will win a Hackbrett Wasser deck!
  • 2nd Prize: The person who raises the second largest amount will win a set of Purple Orangatang Kegels!

Please get your donations in to our Justgiving page. If someone is donating on your behalf, please ask them to put your name on their donation. If there are already some donations on the Justgiving page that you’d like to claim as yours, email us and we’ll add to your running total!

We’ll announce the winner on the 15th November, so please get your donations in before this date!

Update 25/10/2018:

The raffle raised £985 – so we have a total of £1,510 on our Justgiving Page right now! Congratulations to all the winners and massive thanks to everyone who entered!!

Update 24/10/2018:

Check out the edit from Plymouth Uni Skate Society, who were flying a drone over the pumptrack for a lot of the day! If you’re longboarding in Plymouth be sure to hit them up!

It’s 13 miles from Bath to Bristol along the cycle path. The bit just outside Bath was really a treat, skating through some beautiful countryside in glorious autumn sunshine!

“How long does it take to skate 13 miles?”

“It depends how many pubs you stop at along the way!”

Parts of the cycle path have benefitted from a resurface in recent years – which was a welcome rest from the incessant foot buzz!

A welcome rest at the halfway cafe!

Everyone got some laps in at the newly-surfaced Hillfields Pumptrack. We’re stoked to see more tarmac pumptracks appearing in the UK!

This year’s prize stash was bigger than ever! With brands like Lush, Cult, Sabre, Loaded, Orangatang, Arbor, Z-Flex, Hackbrett and Vandem Longboard Shop, there were a lot of stoked faces, and raffle tickets added significantly to the total raised for Clic Sargent.

The youngest skater to do the 13 mile push was just five years old! We thought she was worthy of this Arbor deck as a prize… she was super happy!!

Everyone crowded into Vandem Longboard Shop on the way back home…

Massive thanks to everyone who came and skated, you made the day what it was!!

Keep your eye on this post for more updates and look out for next year’s event!
