Concrete Reality (architecture &/or skateboarding)

That looks so fun.
Reminds me of this park I used to skate in Enfield which was built in an old paddling pool. One of those tiny simple parks, which was a blast.

Brum was well clockwork orange in those days. A bit like Elephant and Castle, but a whole city

I remember first seeing this spot in issues of Puzzle with Kristian Bomholt or someone skating it. Always looks sick. Good to know the ledges are tough as hell to skate so the groms stay away.

I love seeing this because it always reminds me to listen to Warhead again.

It really was. Brum mid 80’s was a pretty heavy vibe

Would have heard it around the same time. Was everywhere for a while now I only hear it when that Beefy clip comes on.

Beefy nailed it on the beatboxing btw haha.

Found this photo of Brockwell Park, assume long gone but was maybe still there late 70s, hopefully long enough for someone to skate it?
