  • damn right they don,t have a clue in that shop buy your stuff from real skaters that help the skate scene not a shop/company like that ps you,re right about the smackheads
  • I'm sorry, but you clearly dont have a clue. the guy that walked out, was the only skateboarder that worked for 'extreme direct'. and the 2 smack heads that now work in playground, dont have a clue. why support a shop that has nothing to do with skateboarding !! SUPPORT SKATER OWNED.
  • What do you know! if you were a proper bristol skater you would be shoppin in FIFTY FIFTY not in a poor excuse for a skate shop like the PLAYGROUND
  • See your point! but there arnt any skater owned shops in weston, is there? (Dont know im from bristol) so probably not a good idea p#ssing off the only decent shop you guys have....anyway, think the guy your talkin about has left, walked out apparantly? Never got on with the guy myself, thought he new it all!! Anyway, dude with dreads is still there (Sorry don't know name), cool guy!! When i went in a new girl had just started, seemed really cool, and better lookin....Playground still the best (and only) real skate shop in weston in my opinion, been going there for years, still will...spend, spend, spend i say
  • If you,re visiting weston or if you live in weston for that matter DO NOT REPEAT DO NOT SPEND YOU,RE CASH INTHE PLAYGROUND !it is not skater owned nor has ever done anything to help the scene nor ever will it is owned by people who are cashing in on other peoples passions WHAT KIND OF SKATESHOP OWNER LAUGHS WHEN A SKATEPARK PETITION/COMMITEE IS SUGGESTED THE OWNER OF THIS ONE THATS WHO! ........SUPPORT SKATER OWNED!
