Nike Skateboarding has spent two months redesigning, regenerating and revitalizing one of London’s most renowned under cover skate spots: BaySixty6, located under the Westway at the end of Portobello Rd, West London. The park has been completely transformed into a state-of-the-art facility; the first of its kind in London. The floor has been resurfaced with fresh concrete, the underside of the Westway has been fitted with a new lighting scheme and an improved sound system has been installed. BaySixty6, complete with its renovated shop and social area, is now set to become the hub of London skateboarding, regardless of the weather.
On Saturday 15th September BaySixty6 will reopen its doors to the public. To mark the occasion the first skate session, between 3 — 8pm, will be free to enter and will feature a demo from the Nike Skateboarding team, some of which helped commemorate the closure of the old park. Confirmed to attend are Sean Malto, Justin Brock, Wieger Van Wageningen, Theotis Beasley, Tim Zom, Fernando Bramsmark, Korahn Gayle, Neil Smith, Chris Jones, Jacopo Carozzi and new team rider Kyron Davis.
