So, many are aware that Adelaide is quickly becoming the place to stay away from as far as skating is concerned. We have crew in court facing criminal charges, the highest fines in the country and the rudest and most agressive police.
Laguna Beach has had a small success recently showing that skateboarders can put forward a solid and intelliegent argument. At the moment the SA crew along with Daily Grind are pushing for regular weekend road closures from councils to give ourselves and new comers to the sport somewhere to skate without upsetting our very sensitive system.
A petition has been written up and although it mainly focuses on a change in the laws we are realistic in the knowing this wont happen anytime soon. It will put a large number of names on a sheet supporting what we do though and show that regardless of what the law may or may not do, a change in attitude is needed. Hopefully they can begin to meet us half way.
Have a read and if you agree put you name on it. Show your folks and your mates at school too.
If you ever plan to ride a longboard in South Australia, you are our demographic.
