    I think there's a regular/weekly slalom meet in Hyde Park. Found a link:

    http://www.ukslalomskateboarding.com/where.htm

    I skate Richmond Park, but it's 30 mins from the centre of London. The whole of the South Bank is great for skating if you choose your moment when the crowds are gone - an 8pm longboarding trip on a summers evening from Tower Bridge to Waterloo can't be beaten anywhere.

    If you want to skate the streets you could try this event:

    The Stroke Association - The Thames Bridges Bike Ride 2009

    and few of the distance guys are dong it.

    This is a must on the calendar:

    Sky Sports London Freewheel

    ...but you need to be competent enough to avoid large groups of cyclists. I sketched one the first year I did it!

    Dude, I work in watford & live in harrow, where there's a couple of nice mellow hills for carving, some great spots for sliding, a decentish run or 2 for DH after midnight & slick car park to practice boardwalking on when the winter comes.

    Check out octane sport for sweet slalom gear and a bunch of longboard stuff. they are at octanesport.com , Stridey is wicked!

    Then also oddballz in camden has some stuff although they are mostly a juggling shop, but have some good bits in.

    To the OP: get on longboard-sessions.co.uk there's always lots of stuff in the area!
    Longboard-Sessions.co.uk - UK Longboarding

    Canterballs-Longboarding.co.uk - Shredding near Canterbury

    DangerousDecks.co.uk - lifting the gloom from an increasingly restricted, post finacial-apocalypse Britain

    Best places to hit up IMO are:
    Brixton Cycles Website
    Dojy Skateboards Website<-personal favourite

    Stock selection is nothing like an online retailer like DBS or LBS but they do have more longboard orientated gear than most if not all other skate shops in the city

    There's also Heelys near Marble Arch, but they mostly only sell completes & pretty much just Lush/Loaded last time I checked.

    Saw your thread on the Lush site too. You may have to order stuff in advance to make sure it's available when you arrive. If want to send stuff to my address to pick up when you're here you're most welcome - and no I won't sell/trade or use it!

    You're welcome to come for a skate too.

    I'm about 1 hour from Central London using public transport.

    Hey everyone. I live in southern Vermont in the US, but I'm doing a semester of college in London this coming fall and I'm bringing my longboard. I mostly cruise and do downhill, and since I'm also a runner, endurance skating is interesting to me. How big is the longboard community there? Hardly anybody around southern Vermont longboards.

    We had about 15 people out today, and are looking at a meet of 40+ next sunday so you shouldn't have a problem finding people to ride with!
