The 10th ever Bury St Edmunds Skatepark Jam took place on Sunday 9th July. The town was crying out for the event after no B.S.E jam taking place in 2016...... As always skaters and riders from far and wide arrived, to take part, chill and just be part of the day. Super pleased this years event had more of a family feel than previous years....... Often parents don't get to see what their offspring get up to at the park, it was a perfect day to showcase to all what skatepark sports have to offer!
Past members of Bury Skatepark Experience came along to enjoy by Tom Ellam.

This year saw the introduction of the Luke Jarvis shield, in memory of a local shredder from Stowmarket who was known far and wide and will be sorely missed. We wanted to keep his spirit alive by giving people the opportunity of winning a one off shield, which will be presented every year to the one person who embodies the spirit of Luke. His dad Andy also dropped off some extra prises for this, so we picked a winner and 2 others that shone.

Here's our very own Ashley Finlay giving you pointers on how to flare...
Young Harry and his brother Willoughby accompanied by their dad came in and tried their hand at some video advert work. Check it out! We think it came out pretty good. Thanks guys.
Here at Hardcore Hobbies, we understand that busy lives sometimes mean time is precious! That is why we have introduced a 'Buy Online - Collect In-Store' option at checkout.
As much as we love to see all your lovely faces in-store, we know you can't always manage to pop in.
Having this option will hopefully mean you can secure the items you want and pick them up at a time that is convenient for you, ultimately giving you more time to hit the skatepark, run an errand or just relax!
All you locals and Bury St Edmunds visitors can now shop in your own leisure.
Don't forget to bring your order number & proof of name and address when you come to collect your items. Thanks, all at HHHQ.
We're back!

Check out the official jam poster below. This is going to print imminently and will be doing the rounds very soon. Thanks to everyone involved in making this happen and to all the brands and distributors for supplying the prizes. This is sure to be one hell of a day.
