Kettering PSPO – Market Place

November 13th, 2015 | Kettering PSPO, Shop News

As you know the council had a public consultation asking if you agreed they should criminalize skateboarding/bmxing/car clubs along with lots of other things in Kettering Town Centre. 75 % of the people that filled in the councils form were in favour of the skateboarders. Maybe the council were unhappy with the first results?

The form below was in the council’s reception and seems to us to encourage people to comment negatively about skateboarders what do you think…

If would be great if as many people as possible filled in the form.

We created an online version:

Maybe we should make our own form? With questions like “Do car parking charges put you off shopping in Kettering”? I wonder how many people would fill it in then?

We have also printed some out and put them on the side near the magazines in Chopper or could print a pdf version (Download Here) and send it to your local councillor by email a list of councillors can be found here:

More about the PSPO

We are still waiting to find out the councils final decision about the PSPO and if skateboarding in the town centre will become a criminal offence. This will be decided at an executive meeting which anybody can attend, as many people as possible would be really helpful! We are yet to be given the date as it keeps getting cancelled and the latest update is January. But as soon as we find out we will let you all know.

So Seb, how did you get so shit hot at drawing pictures is it down to practise or were you just born that way?

I’ve always been into drawing, I been practising all my life, so I guess it’s a bit of both!

Skateboarding has been part of your life from an early age, how do you think this influences your art?

Since I can remember I’ve skateboarded and drawn, they came together about the same time for me. Skateboarding influenced only my creative art, where i would draw from my mind and not robot copy, like the portraits i draw. Seeing unique art on t-shirts and decks as a whipper snapper and now, definitely inspires me to keep drawing from my mind.

Who do think made the best ever deck graphic?

I’ve always been influenced by Powell Peralta artist Vernon Courtlandt Johnson, aka VCJ. Gota be The ripper and the Bones Brigade graphics!

Which is the best deck you have ever skated?

I’ve had a lot so its pretty tough to say, would have to say i learnt a lot of tricks on my Creature vs Putrid deck.

Which company would you most love to work with on a design?

Probably Santa cruz or Creature or Black label haha

Do you have an all time favourite skater?

When I was younger I had and skated every Bucky Lasek Birdhouse deck that came out!, but it has to be Christian Hosoi!

Skateboarding goes in and out of fashion along with width of the jeans, do you long for the day when the jeans are 30” across the bottom again or are you glad to keep things tight?

Haha I’ve been through the days where baggy was cool then spray on tight were cool, I’m glad to say I’m happy the fashion is leveling out.
