The sneaker brand gets back to its roots and helps out the local community by refurbishing and renovating Kennington Bowl.

Converse‘s global ‘Fix to Ride' platform sets out to improve derelict concrete skate parks by renovating and reviving them for the local community. The bowl at Kennington in London had huge cracks and an uneven surface after 35 years of use, so Converse gave it a new surface and added some new features with the help of California Skateparks.

After two weeks, the fixed-up bowl was unveiled and a Converse UK Skateboarding competition was held to celebrate. Some of the UK's top skate stores battled it out until Rollersnakes came out on top, taking home the winning prize as London's first ‘Fix to Ride' champions. You can check out highlights from the event in the video below:
