Skate and Annoy was mentioned in last month’s issue of Sidewalk Mag via Jim Thompson’s Scene Zine column. Thanks for the love from the UK. Some older Scene Zine are archived online if you are looking for more ways to avoid work or school. If Mark and Neil ever find out they don’t need me, I’m sunk.
Reader D.I.Y. from the U.K. This spot first started with something called the rainbow ledge, a curb that kind of looks like a rainbow. It’s apparently mostly a one man operation, or at least it has been in the past. I don’t know where this guy finds all these curved preformed concrete curbs, I want one. There’s some videos after the jump, but you might as well head on over to the Rainbow Ground to catch all the pictures, including construction phases.

This week’s Shot of the Week is a Thom Bleasdale photo of Robert Mead at a skatepark in Barnstaple, North Devon. Check it out.
Asda Superstore, the UK equivalent of a Walmart is selling these skateboarding garden gnomes for £5 a piece, which begs the question, why make a skateboarding garden gnome? Well, why not? I actually think it’s kind of funny, although It would have been better if it looked like a garden variety (ouch) gnome. I’d like him to be less conspicuous, just standing there with his board against his side. Still, if I was in the UK I’d pony up 8 bucks for one of these. I mean. look at this web site… You’re damned right I watermarked that photo.
