Bored of Southsea's 25th Birthday Jam

Bored of Southsea's 25th Birthday Jam

Check out the fun from Bored's 25th Birthday jam at the new Pitt St Skatepark.

A few weeks ago Bored of Southsea celebrated 25 years in business, and marked the occasion with a joint pre-opening skate jam and after party at the new Pitt St Skatepark. The local skate community has been so excited for the opening of Portsmouth's first indoor skatepark, so it was the perfect way to get everyone together to celebrate our landmark birthday, and skate the new indoor skatepark for the first time. There was plenty going on all day with BMX, Roller Blade, Scooter jams and Roller Disco earlier in the day, before the skaters got to take over for the rest of the day and evening. We held a bunch of cash for tricks jams on various obstacles around the park, and plenty of prizes given out for Best Tricks/Most Commitment ect. It was incredible to see so many faces from over the years (OG customers, store riders, old employees, local legends, old friends & new) that showed up, coming from near and far to skate, or just popped by for a birthday drink.

To accompany the skating we were treated to a host of DJ's playing throughout the whole event, including the likes of Gentle Bren, Dave Morgan, Fly Mike, Charlie Waddington, Calum Green and ex-shop employee Lloyd Davies. The turn out for the whole day was incredible, and we are truely grateful to all that came down to support. We wouldn't have been able to celebrate with so many people if it wasn't for Jake & Jenna at Pitt St Skatepark sharing the pre-opening event. Other big thank you's go to all of the kind brands that supported the event and donated prizes, including Carhartt WIP, Polar Skate Co, New Balance Numeric, Skateboard Cafe, Shiner Distribution, Pass-Port Skateboards, Wayward Wheels and Orbs Wheels.

We're very proud to have been open for a quarter of a century, and couldn't have done it without you.
