Birmingham NEC Skateboard Competition 1990Stadium skateboarding was a concept which was just around the corner, but at this point the idea of skating in a big venue was completely new to us.
The banked slalom course was the other major novelty here. In retrospect that seems like a glance backwards towards an earlier stage in the development of skateboarding — an attempt to recreate the very earliest forms in a competition environment. History shows that things took a different turn.
