Come on down to Spit and Sawdust this Saturday for the premiere of the new 'Lands End' film, documenting Barney Page's cross-country skate for the Ben Raemers Foundation.
After skating from one end of the country to the other to raise awareness and funds for the Ben Raemers Foundation, the new film documenting Barney Page's epic journey is now coming to Cardiff to help further shine a light on the darkness of suicide. 'Lands End' will be shown in Wales for the first time on the 14th October at Cardiff's prestigious Spit and Sawdust Skatepark. Doors are set to open at 6PM with the film itself being shown at 8PM so make sure you get down nice and early to avoid missing out!
'Lands End' is a feature-length film by Ryan Sherman which follows Barney on his incredible cross-country mission from John O' Groats to Land's End and using this journey to take a closer look at the life of Ben Raemers and some of the factors that led to him tragically taking his own life at 28. The film features insights from Ben's sister, Lucy Raemers, as well as some of his closest friends and teammates including Nestor Judkins, Jerry Hsu and Leo Sharp, for a deeply personal look into the life and death of one of skateboarding's most beloved characters.
Obviously you're not gonna want to miss this so to avoid disappointment make sure you buy a ticket beforehand to RSVP to the event. But don't stress, tickets are a meagre £5 (that's basically the price of a pint) and are available to buy online or over the counter at Spit and Sawdust. But if that's not enough to convince you, all proceeds from the tickets are going to the Ben Raemers Foundation to further support the work they do, so you'll be supporting a charity and earning yourself some good karma just by coming down.
That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to browse the latest skateboard decks, clothing, skate shoes and more. Or, find out more about the latest Cardiff skateboard events on the CSC Blog. Safe.
