Xplore playToon

Tyneside is one big playground and PlayToon 2012 is out to represent skaters, BMXers and free-runners over the weekend of 18th-19th May 2012.
Urban Games, Digital Deekies, 4-Sight, Northumbria Uni and Streetphire have hooked up with the Holy Biscuit Gallery in Shieldfield to organise the venue, exhibtion and action. We will be showing photography, video, cartoons and maps from local street sports scenes with ramps and space for live action. Maybe you are only starting out or have a stash of photos from back in the day: PlayToon is there to show off your world, roots and culture.
This blog will keep you posted on what we are up to, how to get involved and explore the place of street sports in the city.

"My first proper board.....

...was from Transit, it was £10, it was a blank with an Elements sticker on it, just the best board. Learnt ollies and kicks on it in my street and the next week I went to my friend's street, did an ollie, nose stalled and snapped my board and started crying" (Jamie). Well, it's either that or "mine was an Alien Workshop, but my truck broke and I was really angry so I chucked my board into the river". Which ever way it is a love story.
