have a look at the cool time lapse of the skate park build
with the recent good weather the morning sessions have been getting earlier and earlier… Here are a few pics of the park before it gets busy…
And at the other end of the day… As the park empties…
hopefully we will have the extra bins we requested a few weeks back in place soon. In the mean time please encourage park users to take their litter home with them or use one of the bins on the pathways. As there seems to always be a breeze blowing – litter left in neat piles soon gets blown around making it look worse than it is :0(
The zero degrees jam (7/32015) turned out to be a busy day with hundreds of people at the park skating, scooting, bmx’ing and watching the riding.
On the hottest day of the year so far with blue sky’s!!
It’s was Presented by death skate boards and hardet supply co with the generous support of sponsors Brighton vans store, oceansports board riders, route one Brighton and the drawing boards. Plus some special prizes from flip skateboards.
Death skate boards dan cates was on the mic getting the riders amped but with such a big turn out it wasn’t such a hard job
The format was a loose jam session in the bowl with winning tickets been handed allowing you to pick up a prize from the tent.
The was also decks for the 3 longest grinds in the deep end and a flip deck for the best lip trick on the extension
After this there was the canvas curb comp, the vert wall challenge and finally the hand rail session took place in the street area
While all this was going on prizes and goodie bags we being given out – users young and and old – were getting these for making the most of the skate parks features.
Finally the day was over and Time beat us, so sorry if we didn’t get to run a session that you wanted to be a part of…. What this space… We feel this could just be the first of many events!
So, thank you sponsors, thank you riders of all shapes and ages and thank you for all if you made it to the park and cheered on the day
