Local Skaters Use Truck Power For Fundraiser!

Swansea's skate community was out in force in aid of two big initiatives at the weekend.

Fundraisers hopped on their boards, scooters and BMX bikes to help raise money for Exist Skatepark and the British Red Cross.

Exist's Managing Director Ric started skateboarding in 1994 and has been a big part in the Swansea skate scene since 2001 when he launched a small clothing brand called Exist. Since then he has opened Swansea’s only skater owned shop and in 2011 opened Exist Skatepark. 

Our reporter Emma Grant caught up with him at the start line at the ramp at Blackpill - click link to listen to interview!
