Wheels and Fins Festival @ Joss Bay Beach, Kent- September 2013
The Wheels and Fins festival is back, and is shaping up to be bigger and better for 2013. Dates are 12th-15th September on Joss Bay Beach in Broadstairs, Kent.
This year there will be a huge mini ramp supplied by King Ramps with a pro/sponsored prize purse and MC abuse from Churchell. Band line ups will be announced shortly but Serious Sam Barrett is already confirmed, and expect some interesting guest DJ slots too!
N.B.: Event isn’t solely focused on skateboarding. A soap box race also takes place, a surfing contest, beach volleyball, Highlights video from 2012 event show a mix of people, including skaters, surfers and spectators that are also made up of families. Some of the entertainment is definitely family friendly and maybe a little naff?
