Skate Canberra

Intrepid Canberra skaters have been out and about re-inventing the architecture as a playground and, more importantly, hurting themselves for your entertainment.

Grommets! Good mix of spots shown from North to South here, and some actual quality skating.

On the other end of the ability scale for local skaters we have efforts like the following…

User pays – like I said.

I’m not going to spend my spare time spruiking for someone I have never met – I have said many times I am happy to pay for this service – As i do for many others…. anyway – being the public servant I am – back off to bed 😛

It’s good – saves me trolling about YouTube looking for local stuff.

Rather have RA than no RA. Am spreading the word as best I can.

Being condescending would be treating you like idiots.

You don’t like the YouTube stuff? Well I’m flattered you loved everything else we did. It’s a small minority of the content, scroll on for god’s sake.

On the other note if Riot readers are unwilling to lift a finger to help then we’ve really been wasting our time and effort on you lot.

JB – I find it amusing the way you on one hand condescend your readership and then ask in the same breath for money to (essentially) help support your not moving to Kiama.

You’re also more than capable of finding all the other canberra related content on the internet without our help.

I really don’t see how this is different. Given the boost we give to video viewings when we embed it (and page reads on other websites for that matter) I think we can conclude that we’re doing something valuable here.

I’m with Dan. I’m capable of going to, searching for ‘canberra’ and ordering by date. I don’t need RA doing it for me everyday.

I miss pre youtube RA.

I’ll be looking for the dings in the flagpoles next time I’m down there. Hope VG is able to pick up the face of the little wanker with the temper issue, off the clip and grant him a little tour of the facilities…
Danman, as long as they are idiots enough to publish their faces or number plates, I’m happy to see RA serve as a vehicle for them getting their dumb arses busted…

The ones who record it get the publicity.

“There are a lot of skaters in Canberra with more skill than these blokes.” – One would hope so or we’re in trouble !!!

One hundred attempts to land a 180 ollie down two steps. There are a lot of skaters in Canberra with more skill than these blokes.

Sadly lame,

But it was interesting to see that the tool was clearly at fault, the way that the lamo threw it around..
