Opening Weekend – John Thurston


Posted on : 07-Apr-2011 | By : Effraim | In : Events

John Thurston is an absolute legend at Southsea Skatepark and ran the park through the golden skate era back in the 80s so it was only fitting that he came down at the re-opening weekend event and officially reopened the park for all.
