Alpine Action Notting Hill - help needed
« on: January 14, 2011, 09:45 AM »
Hey fellas,
so, Im sure many of you remember alpine Action in Notting Hill, London back in the day -
but does anyone have any pics or scans of their old logo? Or pics/scans of their old ads in the mags?
It was a diamond shape logo, and their tees had a little diamond on the breast, and a larger one on the back.
any help would be appreciated!
steve

Steve there is a guy on BMXTalk, Terry Green, who`s dad used to work in there, and I think he might still have some stickers  :daumenhoch:

I'm pretty sure that Alpine Sports became Alpine Action, then when that folded it went back to being Alpine Sports.  They moved from Nottinghill Gate to High St Kensington when Alpine action folded and had the basement of the Alpine Sports shop there.  I remember working there when the kids that played "Pogo Patterson" came in to buy a blue Kuwahara KZ2.

Alpine Sports was there first, in High Street Ken, I went there in the 70s to buy skate board wheels, then Alpine Action came about in the early 80s  :daumenhoch:

Yep, originally Alpine Sports had more than two shops, but deffo the one in Nottinghill Gate (which got named Alpine Action but was Alpine Sports first) and a few others called Alpine Sports dotted around London, High Street Ken being at least one other, I think they got bought out by Blacks in the end but not 100% sure about that.

Bought my Torker 280x from Alpine Action. Our crew would go up from bumblefook herts on the buses and trains. Hopefully had enough for a Kentucky Fried Chicken for on the top deck of 113 bus going home. That shop was so cool. My brother ran into one of the lads at a club in 1989 lol
