Freestyle Skatestore Official Blog! So I was posting on SHREDWALES.COM alot but I felt I was missing out doing my own thing, I hope to post as regularly as possible as the FREESTYLEKATESTORE.COM team riders are vast and incredibly active in the skateboarding calender, but I will also be posting up all the stoopid things that go along with skateboarding, as I once read on a beer coozie, "Sometimes skateboarding means not skateboarding."

Exist Skatepark in Swansea is open!!!!!!!!!


Dear shredders,

Team Creative Director Lt Meat here. As Grim has been hard at work in the shop I've hijacked the blog to tell you all some awesome news about the new Exist Skatepark in Swansea. I'm pleased to say that the Exist Skatepark in Swansea is now fully open!!!!! and it's indoors too!!!!!!!! That's the news. Rick and the team have been slugging their guts out to get the park finished and they've done a cracking job too! 

Me, Beanhead (9" girth Creature from the brown lagoon) and that krooked mofo Tom Bailey headed up for a 20 min skate in the new park, sheltered away from the perpetual Swansea drizzle and sporadic car crime (we didn't realise the park was shutting at 5pm yesterday and got there at 4:40pm.................jerks). Still, we had a nice drive and I feel we got to know each other slightly better whilst travelling on the road together, I won the boner competition with Bailey coming a close second and Beanhead, coming up in the rear, in third place.

I would advise checking on the Exist Skatepark website if you're heading up to check that the park is open and that there aren't any private sessions on the go, there's also information about membership and pricing too. 

Exist head honcho Rick, the most hardworking dude I've probably ever met, sexy and bald too.

The miniramp area, Beanhead and Bailey threw down some bangers on this during the 20 mins we were there.

The main park area from the top of the large flat bank.

This is what I'm calling the street simulation training hub area zone.
Magic!!! I'm sure I'll see you all there one rainy evening very soon.

Over and out

The Vans Shop Riot was fun.

Our team were definitely the best looking and always deliver the fun, we only didn't win because Vans are racist and we are Welsh haha! It was super sick to see Welsh brothers CITY SURF had a team and we missed Exist but they are getting ready for the Exist Park opening Sat.

Our team was Jake Collins, Sam Pulley and new bloods Nicki Chapelle and Owen "SOX" Wheatstone.

ARBEL SAMSONOV, Welcome to the team.

Some kids are more than "just good on a skateboard" Arbel has been one of us since day one and has really in all fairness deserved this for a long time, there was no way I could not put Arbel on the team,

Welcome to the team, I know it's not a mistake.


Creature Tour, most local park Hereford. Meat the dudes who's boards you ride.

If they are rad you know they are worth supporting, if they are jerks don't haha!

creature tour.


Skateboarding's weird ey? You meet people and if you like skateboarding the common ground leads you into conversation and then you can form either a friendship or a polite brush off, I have found that I am alot pickier the older I get. This was not the case with my new homeeys, Garrett (not actually spelt like Carrot) and Shaboopy Nico.

Both dudes ride for Witchcraft in on form or another, Nico on some flow deal through French and Garrett through Dan at and 9 Times Skate Shop in Canada, Now it is no hidden fact I love this guy so I held out high hopes for our Canadian brother, no disappointment there, both dudes are rad. He has invited me on the 9 Times tour next year, I am so starting saving today. I will Make This Happen Soon (See what I did there, man I am soooo clever haha!)
