SKATEBOARDERS, skate cinematographers and photographers are invited to share their talents on a brand new website.

Amy Crawford and Curtis Richmond from St Annes have set up a new skateboard networking website known as The Archive which allows local enthusiasts to share their talents.

The website, which became live at a special launch event held at Bar 137, Blackpool, last night, aims to act as a local talent directory for skateboarders.

Anybody connected to the sport is invited to use the site to upload videos and photographs and share their talents.

And Amy Crawford is looking forward to seeing the entries. She said: “Our website is a talent directory for an industry that lacks opportunities for unsigned artists.

“We felt it was time to give these athletes a chance to throw themselves into the game.

“Skateboarders, skate cinematographers and photographers from around the UK can join our site and create a personal archive which will showcase their talent.

“We aim to provide coverage and invite companies to browse through our members if seeking a new talent.

“We hope local people can churn out some unique media so we can reveal some incredible athletes”.

The pair are in the process of organising a sponsored skateboard competition and hope to produce a full-length feature video this summer, touring the region filming local skateboarders willing to participate.
