(SOUNDBITE) (English) SKATEBOARDER AND KING AND QUEEN OF THE CARPET MALE WINNER, JAMIE GRIFFIN, SAYING:"I'm mint that we're set up because I've got a few ledges knocking about the place like and I usually just skate on the carpet anyway, because I live in Ireland like, so, it's usually raining half the time. So, I skate on the carpet just because it's fun you know. It's the only thing I can really do."

There are around 750,000 skateboarders in the UK

But with skate parks closed

it's hard for some to carry on with the sport

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SKATEBOARDER AND KING AND QUEEN OF THE CARPET FEMALE WINNER, HOLLY JONES, SAYING:

"Skating in lockdown is hard. Especially because I've only got grass in the garden and like there's no one to encourage me to do things. It's just a bit dull."
