    Exclamation TV show needs research INFO!! Help me!

    I am trying to put some research together for a TV series on longboarding around the world and I want to find out what kind of scene London has going on. So if any of you UK skaters can answer the below questions for me I would appreciate it. Help me shine a light on the awesome stuff you are doing!

    What are the spots in London to skate? Cruising, freestyle, downhill, sliding, garages etc.

    Do people use it for daily transportation?

    What is the biggest competition?

    Is there one shop or spot people meet up?

    Is it considered a green, environmentally friendly, thing to do?

    Is there one person who is sort of leader/figurehead in the scene?

    Thanks! Really appreciate any help you can give.

    You don't work for TNT mag do you? they just rang me...

    Anyhoo, you need to go facebook and find the group/page "London Longboards", most stuff is on there

    Also get involved in the UK scene at Longboard-Sessions.co.uk - UK Longboarding

    And lets have a tackle at your questions:

    What are the spots in London to skate? Cruising, freestyle, downhill, sliding, garages etc.
    Anywhere! Most big meet ups are in the various parks because there's no traffic.

    Do people use it for daily transportation?
    Definitely.

    What is the biggest competition?
    UK or just London? The scene is evolving so rapidly it's hard to say! 2009 we had the 6-3-1 series slide comp, 2010 had the UK Outlaw Championships, 2011...well... you'll find out

    Is there one shop or spot people meet up?
    Usually the parks, discipline changes which one.

    Is it considered a green, environmentally friendly, thing to do?
    Sure why not! depends who you talk to eh!

    Is there one person who is sort of leader/figurehead in the scene?
    There's a few gys who are really prominent and spread the stoke, run events etc.
