Skate Magazine was the UK’s sole roller sports magazine in the UK, was supported by the British Roller Sports Federation (BRSF).
As printed media in the UK continues to struggle against a digital format, launching a printed magazine for a specialist topic area was always going to be an uphill struggle. Bardy Publishing Group had lots of support publishing 8 quarterly editions and pleased with the fruits of our labour and forged new friendships publishing new material, reminiscing historic events and skaters. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the magazine, from writing articles to covering events we couldn’t get to and most importantly recognising it wasn’t a perfect magazine – it summarised what was happening at a very exciting time of skating in the UK.
Bardy Publishing Group is no longer trading and supports online forums and fact sheets. We also recognise everyone has an opinion about skating. What ever your opinion, whether you’re right or wrong, partly correct or just got the wrong idea completely – skating is an all inclusive audience and all opinions are welcome (even if they’re totally wrong!). So if Roller Derby skaters want to tell street skaters what the best wheel is for outdoor skating – please don’t let us stop you – feel free to contribute to the debate.
