Tonight’s Pour It Now Meeting

Tonight’s meeting was jam packed with important news and updates. Progress is being made on all fronts of Pour It Now’s Charleston Plan. The Divide and Conquer strategy seems to be very effective! First off, The City of Charleston department of Parks is in full support of creating a number of “pocket parks” or skate spots throughout the City. This will begin immediately, so skaters look for some spots to be built and ready to shred in the near future!!! The Ackerman Community Build Project will also be getting underway pending the Final City approval. We will be asking for lots of community involvement, be ready to get your hands dirty! Daniel Island wants a skatepark? Look for Pour It Now to get involved as the details unravel. And last, but certainly not least, The Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission is finalizing the location and logistics for the “Big One!”

Charleston PIN News !

The Charleston chapter of Pour It Now has some news to share.

We’ve begun a collaborative design phase with Byer’s Design Group, A well established
architectural firm in Charleston, for the purpose of creating the layout and design of not
just the proposed skate park itself but also the amenities structural and technical aspects
of the area in and outside of the park proper. Meaning, drainage, parking, lighting and many
other aspects that all have to be covered to present to local review boards the city of Charleston
the SCDOT and of course the people (you) themselves.

We’re also in the negotiation stages with the city on many other aspects of the project. Including
finances, final securement of a location, timelines for fundrasing, project start to finish time
and more.

In the near future we’ll be setting our sights again on fundraising and increasing public awareness
for Pour It Now and the Charleston Skate park initiative !

Spread the word, tell folks how to find us here on the web and stay tuned for more and more
rapidly updated news here on the site.

Keep Skating,

Pour It Now !

(Columbia) – By Sydney Cummins
Kids and adults from all over the Columbia area gathered at the Fifth Avenue Deli on Rosewood Drive today for National Go Skateboarding day.

But, it wasn’t just a chance to show off their skills, the area skaters also got an announcement that could make their dream into a reality.


Not every jump can pay off, as some of the skaters learned Saturday. “I spend a lot of time with it. You gotta get good at it… When I jump in the air, I just feel like I have control over something and it’s just really, really fun,” says skater Caleb Brown.
