  • Paddle Round the Pier - this weekend!

    The Ocean Sports Mobile Skate Store is on the road again, this weekend we're at Paddle Round the Pier Brighton. As they have three mini ramps there this year, plus the slalom skating, we're gonna be right next to the ramps and the slalom skating. Our team riders Jez, Paul, Marley, Emmett, Josh and Eden will all be representing this weekend - you won't miss them as they'll all be rocking the new shop skate tees. 

    Witchcraft team riders Jamie Morley, Garret McNevin, Max, French, Nico, and Joe Habgood will be at Saturday's Pro Jam. Witchcraft's artist / owner "French" is going to put some of his infamous artwork on a blank deck which will then be auctioned on the day - all proceeds go to the paddle charities. . Prizes have been rolling in all week from Death, Vans, Shiner, Santa Cruz, Independent, Surrey Skateboards, Dwindle so the tricks for prizes jams are going to be off the dial...

    The skate store will be jammed full of new stuff from the likes of Creature, Witchcraft, Real, Indy, Krooked, Bones.... We'll have a big range of longboards from Loaded and Santa Cruz plus old school favourites from G&S, Powell, Alva and more. There will also be lots of deals on the day on Santa Cruz tees and hoodies so come and say hi.

    Don't forget to check out the slalom skating too which is happening right on the sea front - this year they have two start ramps plus drag strip style lights watch some of the best slalom skateboarders in the Uk in action.

  • The day the Creature team came!

    Here’s some pictures of the Creature USA / UK skateboard team visit to Ocean Sports 12th June. Shoreham locals waited all day for the weather to break and a chance to see Creature pros skate their park - but with the downpour showing no let up it wasn’t going to happen…!

    We had a quick re-think and a convoy was formed to truck locals back to our shop, Ocean Sports, where we opened up and arranged to meet there.

    After the obligatory board, t shirt, hat, sticker toss outside Woodies Diner the creature team including Al Partanen, Darren Navarrette, Taylor Bingaman, Sam Hitz, Alex Horn, Adrian Mallory, Stu Graham, Carl Wilson, Colin Adam and Ben Divine rolled into the store to meet with the few lucky locals.

    Pros signed boards, t shirts, bits of boards etc and spent time hanging out which was very cool and much respected considering they had only arrived in the UK that morning and had come via Hastings!

    Determined to get some skating in, the Creature guys made a 'weather permitting' promise to get down to the bowl the next day. Fingers were crossed for fine weather for the next morning – we got the call just after 9am that Emmett and Geoff had hand dried the bowl and it was now skateable! Phew! We made a quick call to the Creature Crew to give them the heads up and the session was on.

    News went round like wild fire -lets just say school attendance records took a dip that day!

    The Creature USA and UK team skated with the Shoreham locals from 11 till 3 – the pictures tell the story
