Bugsboarding is well-known for being one of the most progressive mountain board centres in the UK; there aren’t many places where you could find an absolute beginner riding 100 metres away from the current World Freestyle Champion. Whether you are an extreme-sports enthusiast, looking for a new adrenaline buzz, or a basic novice, there will […]

We are going to try and install a big air freestyle bag at BugsBoarding! We really want to build an amazing freestyle scene at Bugs and we need your input to help this happen.
In order to fund this installation, we are offering the first hundred people to sign up a 2 year membership to Bugs for £100. This normally costs £400 and will include free riding whenever we’re open, plus unlimited free use of the airbag.
If we don’t get up to 100 people, then unfortunately we won’t be able to offer the discounted membership and therefore there will be nothing to pay.
The first 20 slots have already been taken, and we need to get the funds together by the end of the summer so we can place our order and have the airbag ready for summer opening next year (2020).
The bag will be suitable for boards, bikes and dirt scooters, so spread the word! (just thinking – how much would it cost to install a strip of dry ski slope so we could open up to snowboarders/skiers too?)
Your membership will also allow you to become one of the Bugs Boarding crew, with input into how we develop the freestyle side of the centre – tell us what you’d like to see and how we can make the perfect freestyle setup for you and the community!
Join the Bugs air crew and have a t shirt and exclusive membership to an awesome team who design the jumps routes in and best types of events to best promote our individual sports. We want anyone who is keen to ride and get involved to sign up and support us and in return you will get a two year membership worth £400 for your £100 membership fee. It gets you unlimited riding and free camping for two full years and as much input into the build as you can spare or want to partake, we would be grateful for your input the hundred members would be raising £10000 towards a £15000 project so Bugsboarding will be paying the last £5000 and the generator running costs as well as supplying the land ,machines and materials for the site set up
Amon Shaw has been a regular at Bugsboarding for many years and a member of the Bugs team. He has recently released his new mountainboard documentary – Its like snowboarding but with wheels. When filming the project he spent some time at Bugs filming the centre and interviewing AJ.
The film also features another Bugs rider Emlyn Bainbridge as well as many other friends of the centre. Amon has done a great job of documenting mountainboarding and the people that make it so special – we really enjoyed watching this and hope you do too!
Unfortunately the centre will be closed until further notice due to the heavy rain and recent snow fall we have had , with more forecast!
Very sorry for any inconvenience but it’s so wet it’s really not worth the journey right now. Thanks to all that have helped so far to get it all ready, we are, but the weather isn’t! Keep an eye out for updates as to when we will be hoping to open up shortly, or just drop us an email or phone call.
