Hi - im looking to get a new DLSR camera, ive about 350 to spend, and l mainly take skateboarding photos, fast action moving image shots.
Im looking for best possible camera for this type of imagery.
Ive tried a olympus EP1, and it was a bit bulky.
Im happy to go for a second hand camera. Fast frame rate a must.
I also like taking scenery shots so it needs to be a versatile beast.
kind regards.

Well, Id look for a Sony A500/A550, it's going to be pretty hard though !

Tamron 17-50 2.8, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM,

If a continuous shooting rate is a must, I don't think you'll get much joy out of Canikon - the second hand Pentax DSLRs may be your best option but you may not get a great lens for the money unless you go for a prime, which may not be ideal as the fixed focal length gives them little versatility for skateboarding and scenery. Sony's a33 may fall in the price but only at second hand and if you're lucky.

I have to agree with Ruben, I am less than optimistic that you'll get what you're after with your budget. Your prospects would be better with another £100-150.

DSLRs: Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Canon EOS 70D
CSC: Canon EOS M3
Lenses: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EF 50mm f/1.8 II, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM, Canon EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, Canon EF-M 22mm f/2.0 STM
