Q. Who or what is Pushing Boarders?

A. Pushing Boarders is a collaboration between four socially-conscious skateboarding organisations: SkatePal, Long Live Southbank, Skateism & Re-verb Skateboarding.

Q. It’s an event right?

A. Yes (kinda!). What started as an idea for a one-off event has now grown into a much bigger concept and we have plans to expand Pushing Boarders into the future - stay tuned!

Q. What's the purpose of Pushing Boarders?

A. The aim of Pushing Boarders is to: 

  • Celebrate and spread awareness of the organisations and individuals doing amazing things using skateboarding around the world.

  • Shine a light on the smaller organisations often overlooked in the skateboarding media.

  • Encourage debate about lesser spoken topics in skateboarding.

  • Create better relationships between academia, skate NGOS and the skate industry. A platform for networking and sharing ideas between different fields and organisations within skateboarding.

Q. Is the event really free?

A. Yes.

Q. Are you making money out of the event?

A. No! Everyone involved in Pushing Boarders is working on a voluntary basis alongside their day jobs, purely for the love of skateboarding!

Q. Where are the Pushing Boarders Malmö talks located?

A. Talks are hosted between Moriskan Paviljongen (Folkets Park) and Bryggeriet Skatepark, with Skate Malmö Street events happening all over the city!

Q. How do I get to Malmö?

A. The easiest way to get to Malmö is to fly into Copenhagen airport (Kastrup) and take the train from there to Malmö central station (approx 30mins).

Q. How do I get from Copenhagen airport to Malmö?

A. Getting to central Malmö from Copenhagen airport (Kastrup) is simple:

Once you get out to the entrance hall, walk straight ahead (about 50m) until you get to the ticket machines. Either machine will get you tickets to Sweden. If in doubt, use the manned desks. Your destinations will be either Malmö Central or Malmö Triangeln depending on where you are staying.

There are only two platforms, so take the stairs or escalator down to the platform with trains heading to Sweden. The train ride is about 25 minutes with a slightly longer stop at Hyllie station for passport control.

Q. Where should I stay in Malmö?

A. Here are some suggested Hotels:

Triangeln- www.scandichotels.com/hotels/sweden/malmo/scandic-triangeln

Stortorget- www.scandichotels.com/hotels/sweden/malmo/scandic-stortorget
