Here are the last pictures in the trilogy blog of the CPH Skate park:
I skated it the other day.
It is harder to skate than I thought. But then again I only skated it for half an hour.
The size of the street course is very hard to turn into a good skate park. During the last years a lot of different designs have been tried out. And my conclusion is that it is not the designs that are wrong. It is the size/dimensions of the area.
Let me explain:
You can either make a diverse course that are hard to skate with no room for classic/basic manual pads, flat bars and curbs, or you can use 1/3 of the area for a curb and a manual pad and then make something boring out of the last 2/3.
I really dig this course, and I look forward to skate it this winter. But I must say, that I suspect that I will dearly miss a basic curb and a basic manual pad to skate the whole winter.
I wish we had a bigger area to build on. . . .
Please write a comment and let me and the other blog readers know your opinion on the course... also when you have tried it.
A big salute to the designer and the workers..
This kid helped out a lot during the construction of the course. Brent was stoked on his efford, and so should you.
