Michael Stride started off as a slalom skater, back before Southbank had Billy Bragg telling skaters to sod off because he wanted to get paid by the national theatre. From a passion of skating, Octane Sport quickly became the go-to shop for longboarding and slalom way before Hog Hill even existed. Mike keeps his shop stocked with all sorts of goodies - from a staggering arrange of bushings, high quality cheap bearings through to brand new products fresh from global companies: new in just recently are some of these 2-tone Caliber trucks.
The Octane Shop will be there in physical form, a veritable cornucopia of bits and bobs, with plenty of bargains and sales bits Mike always lays on for the benefit of you lovely attendees. Remember to bring cash and go say hi! If there's something super specific, it's worth ordering it before the weekend to make sure he puts it in the van.
