Part 1 of Concrete Dinosaurs focuses on the venerable Romford Skatepark in Essex which has weathered five generations of UK skateboarding history and still stands as a proud testament to the early roots of UK skateboarding culture.
Originally built in 1978, Romford Skatepark, a Grad II listed structure, has witnessed a whole host of carnage from skateboarders from all over the world, transcending it’s four decades of existence.
Rune, Raven, Ben and Sam, alongside a host of UK heads put down in history one of the gnarliest sessions to go down on Rom’s hallowed crusty ground. Check it out below.
