On 21st of June, my friends and I visited a now not so little exhibition known as ‘I Used to Skate Once’.
Now a yearly event, I found The Zoo was packed all the way out to Winn Lane which was also open for the night. Submerged in the sk8er boi atmosphere, I immediately regretted my shoe choice (especially after I’d been at the Reboot exhibition at Artisan) and wished I had opted for my favourite Vans.
Anyways, like I said, the mood was set perfectly with the stage transformed into a half-pipe and some decent local bands playing stage left. The skate boards lined the walls, all with such a unique flavour. Here’s some shots of my personal favourites. (Check out the skate board transformer! It’s my fav!)

Here’s a list of the artists that exhibited their work. If I was a better event blogger I would have made note of who did what piece… you live and you learn.

A big thanks to the Outpost for organising such a fun event. I may make a point of going again next year. To check out some past boards and see what ‘I Used to Skate Once’ is all about, check out their blog.
