Since the 1970s, Undercroft on the Southbank has been the home of British skateboarding, an integral part of the local community and an iconic skate spot cemented into the country’s skating culture and history. However, the skate park is currently facing threats of relocation in the wake of proposals for a £120 million Southbank Centre redevelopment.

In support of the Save the Southbank campaign, Breaksmag have organised a portrait exhibition which opens today (and runs until July 7) at the Red Bull Studios with pics that show the wide variety of people who use the Undercroft and how the area brings them together. From legendary professionals like Tony Hawk and Andrew Reynolds using the ramps to hone their mad skillz, to local kids using the riverside spot as a social meet-up, Save the Southbank believe that the skate park is a London landmark and deserves to stay.
