Bournbrook DIY

Remember the date.

Wednesday 22nd September 2021.

This is the day that the fences came down on Bournbrook DIY, the day that Birmingham got its newest skateboard facility officially recognised and the first skateboard DIY in the country to be sanctioned by local government. From very humble beginnings to a thriving community project, Bournbrook has changed the landscape in Birmingham and we couldn't be more proud of everyone involved. A big thanks goes out to everyone who pitched in and helped to make it happen with special gratitude to James Hemming.

Without his expertise, energy and enthusiasm this would have remained a dream. 

We miss you James.

Kings Norton Skatepark Petition

Kings Norton skatepark is one of the best used skate facilities in Birmingham and has been providing a safe environment to skateboard and socialise for the last 15+ years. Being so well used, the facility needs some attention and would benefit from extension with the increased use that was seen over summer 2020.

Please lend your voice to support the cause by signing the petition linked below.

Lets work together to make Birmingham skateboarding better.

The Skateboarders Companion

It's been a long five years that we have been without a nationwide skateboard magazine. Filling the gap left by Sidewalk looked impossible as new media was reaching full speed and print was looking almost irrelevant. Why wait for something to happen when you can swipe it up on a device within seconds? Thankfully we have finally got something tangible in the form of The Skateboarders Companion that will showcase UK skateboarding on the shelves of newsagents nationwide and offer 3D documentation to to hold and keep of what goes on in the UK.

First issue has hit the shops, selling out within days. We will always get 20 copies but if you want to guarantee your issue then get a subscription and support the supporters!

Do It Yourself

Things are happening in Selly Oak. Hoping to get stage one of a decent DIY set up over the summer. We have been getting money together via the Fastlands T's for materials and tools [available via the shop when we reopen] but It's going to take some graft so check @bournbrookdiy for details and get involved. All help appreciated.
