Design a skateboard for The Arc

In association with Burts Boards, we are running a competition to design a skateboard for The Arc skatepark in Chippenham.

Since The Arc skatepark opened in 2022 a vibrant community has formed. As we approach our first anniversary we wanted to celebrate not only Chippenham’s awesome skaters but your creativity.

The winning design will be turned into a real life deck by Burt’s Boards and will be available for sale in The Arc.

The design

We’ve left the brief open so you can go wild with ideas, the only stipulation is that you include the words The Arc, The Arc skatepark OR a version of The Arc logo. You may also choose to represent the centre or use The Arc colours (red, orange, black, white) but that is entirely optional. Designs should be suitable for all ages, so nothing controversial or offensive please.

The board is approx 8.5 inches wide by 32 inches high but we need a design that spills over the edges for print, so please submit designs that are 9.5 inches wide x 34 inches high. You can see the skateboard dimensions here – as provided by Burt’s Boards. Download The Arc logo

Deadline

Submit your entries to skateboard@theclimbingacademy.com by Sat 11 February.
As a high res jpeg, PDF or similar file suitable for printing. Please only email files under 10MB.

The prize

A deck featuring your very own winning design*, skate goodies from CANVAS and the joy of seeing your design brought to life and used at The Arc.
