BEHIND THE SCENES 03: Southsea Skate Park

In this episode we talk to Effraim Catlow, Manager of historic Southsea Skate Park in Portsmouth. At time of recording the park was turning 40 years old — first established in 1978, and is known globally as one of the oldest skate parks in the world.

We spoke with Effraim about his love of the skate and BMX scene, how the park become a self-supporting charity in 2011, and how the team utilise free marketing platforms such as social media to help raise awareness of their ongoing activities.
