Welcome to a Big Issue for 2010/11

At last! I’m so glad that to finally be able to put one of the late-period issues of R.a.D up on this site. I really liked that period of the magazine. Thank you to Morley College (a wonderful place only a stone’s throw from the South Bank) for the use of the A3 scanner which made this possible.

Sorry for the break

That was painful. The site got caught up in one of the latest WordPress hacks, so I took it down for a while until I had time to try to sort it out. Sorry for the break in service.

Technical Issues

I don’t normally go in for self-regarding nonsense about this site. After all, the whole thing is self-regarding material about something from the past, and I need to draw a line somewhere.But I’ve recently upgraded to a new version of WordPress and have taken the opportunity to add this extra space for items which do not fit in with the main flow of the R.a.d archive.

Glitches in posts

I’m hoping that I can get back to it soon…

Duty Now For The Future

Simon Evans Shell Centre

If you’re interested in the history of skateboarding in Britain, this site contains original vintage UK skateboard material from the eighties and nineties which originally appeared in R.a.D Magazine.

This is an exercise in skateboard nostalgia for old school skaters and a glimpse of the roots of British skating for historians and people researching street culture: part of the Long Tail for skateboarding in the U.K. There are also hints of what life was like producing magazines in the days before desktop publishing.

What about the R.a.D Book or Exhibition?

This is not meant as a substitute for the book or the exhibition which has been discussed on Old Skaters.

That idea is still going ahead, as far as I’m concerned. But that’s a very long term thing.

At the moment I happen to have a bit of time on my hands (!) so I feel this is an opportunity to experiment with getting some of the material published in a way which allows people to see it again, and to add their own recollections or comments if they wish.
