  • Penny Longboards are here!

    Just in the Penny Longboard!

    Penny have taken their secret plastic formula and created a unique camber and convex deck shape to offer quite the ride! The new development provides a greater strength and control over the deck itself whilst still providing that functionality that we all know from the Penny board series.

    This board is ideal for those that love to cruise and explore be it around town or down hills and offer the smooth ride and stability you need!


    Longboarding has been around since the 70's so whether you have tried it or not why not give it a go! We have all the above colours available even a quirky Glow in the Dark option...

    Penny themselves offer a range of blogs on how to; Carve hills on a Longboard , Urban Longboard , Beach Longboard and Transit Longboard.

  • Push The Prom 2015

    International Go Skate Day is on Sunday the 21st June and what a way to get out and celebrate all things skate by taking part in the second ever “Push the Prom” skateboarding event down in Brighton by GirlsSkate UK in association with Lucy Adams and Brighton and Hove Skatepark Association!

    Push the Prom kicks off at 10am down at The Level, it’s totally free and for everyone! There will be some girls only skate lessons with Lucy Adams, followed by the mini ramp jam comp before the push along the Promenade to Hove Lagoon skate park beings!

    We had a quick chat with Lucy to find out why girls should give skating a go.

    “Everyone was a beginner once! When I first tried skateboarding I found it really hard but quite quickly I found I was getting more confident at pushing along and making turns- then I got hooked! Skateboarding doesn't have rules and so you can learn to do whatever you want and whatever makes you feel good. There's loads of support out there if you're a female that wants to get into skating, like the site and GirlsSkateUK Facebook. The internet has loads of info with how to guides and the potential to link you with other girls nearby.“

    push the prom Push The Prom 2015

    There are even drinks afterwards if you’re 18+ at the Big Beach Café by Hove Lagoon.

    It’s definitely worth getting involved and what’s so great about the skate community is everyone is willing to help each other to get over that initial hurdle that you might have. Whether you’re starting out for the very first time or trying to perfect a certain trick, its a nice community to be involved in.

    No equipment, no problem.. Its free equipment hire! and make sure you use the hashtag #pushtheprom2015 to share your footage!

    Take a look at the video from last year and stick the date in your diary!

  • Congrats to DC's Chris Cole - Street League Skate World Champ!

    Congratulations to DC Pro Skateboarder Chris Cole who won the Street League Skateboarding “Super Crown Championship” last night in Newark, New Jersey becoming the 2013 Street League Skateboarding World Champion. Fellow DC teammates Nyjah Huston and Mikey Taylor came in 2nd and 8th places, respectively.

    From the beginning of the competition at the Prudential Center, the night seemed to belong to Cole. He skated consistently well during the entire contest, working his way into the top spot making tricks such as a kickflip backside noseblunt and frontside bluntslide to kickflip out look easy. His highest scoring trick of the night was a 9.3 for a flawless fakie frontside bluntslide down the hubba.

    In true SLS fashion, it all came down to the final seconds with Cole holding on to the lead and taking home the $200,000 Super Crown Championship prize purse. This is the second SLS event of the 2013 season that Cole has won; he also dominated the competition at the SLS event at X Games Munich 2013 back in June

  • Get bidding for The Skatehouse

    Fancy yourself an epic piece of skate memorabilia? Perhaps a copy of Jay-Boy, signed by none other than skateboard legend JAY ADAMS himself! Yeah…we thought so!

    Here at Ocean Sports Board Riders, we like to support the local skate community, so we’ve donated an awesome signed copy of Jay-Boy to the guys down at The Skatehouse to auction off and raise funds for The Skatehouse Skatepark.

    Jay Adams is one of the most influential skateboarders of all time and one of the original members of Z-Boys, the world famous 70’s skateboarding group (along with Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta).  Adams is featured prominently in the award winning documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys and in the 2005 film account of the Z-Boys origins, Lords of Dogtown.

    Jay's stepfather Kent Sherwood was one of the founders of Z-Flex skateboards in 1976, he was also an amateur photographer with skills! Jay-Boy features over 100 pages of classic photographs, rare early moments of Jay, his friends and his lifestyle.

    Jay-Boy was produced in limited run and as you can imagine, a signed copy is pretty damn rare (and special).


    The signed copy of Jay-Boy is up for auction on eBay CLICK HERE to view the listing and make a bid (opens in new window). Auction ends at 9pm on 4th August and all proceeds go to The Skatehouse

    Great prize, great cause – get your bid on folks!
