Skateboarding In Southside Virginia


   There is a lot going on in the Skateboarding world in Southside Virginia, and we will be bringing you event coverage, and stories of interest.

   Next month we will bring you the story of the Philip Wyatt Memorial Skate Park.

   The Philip "Flip" Wyatt Story - A Legacy of Giving

   And we hope to give you a preview of the memorial website created by the Wyatt family.

   So stay tuned.

   In case you missed it, we ran a feature story on Skateboarding back in December. Titled "Skateboarding is Not a Crime" we share an eye-opening look at Skateboarding.

   Listed below are some of the events coming up in the area.
These are great events for Skateboarders and spectators alike.
