Coming soon to the Bukit peninsula.
New Skatepark Designs
Danau Toba, Sumatra
This park is in the middle of a volcanic lake. The boulders are pre-existing, but the island is artificial.
This park sits on a hilltop in the middle of a Thai rice paddy. Storm water passes thru a system of infiltrators before percolating into the paddy below. A limestone cavern below the park houses a subterranean mini ramp which stays cool for midday sessions.
This is the design for the park at the new Geth Noble Skateparks Caribbean regional corporate headquarters and factory outlet store. Click on the images below to open the gallery and see them full size!
Another manifestation of trilateral symmetry. This park will be built on an artificial planet orbiting quite close to an ancient red dwarf star.The planet is tidally locked, one side always faces the star. The skatepark site is in the zone of perpetual dawn. Giant skulls guard the zone of lethal daylight.
Sharp hips, round bumps, loop cradle
Simple but fun
SHARP EDGE CRADLE
I really like sharp-edged hips. This cradle setup has 6, created by intersecting 3 meter radius tranny with round bumps. The landings are easy. One can air these hips way down low on the tranny and still get a little kick off the sharp edge. It’s good for learning new tricks. Then as you get stuff dialed you can blast off the higher edges at full speed. When everything in a skatepark is rounded off, I find it monotonous. It’s definitely easier to pour the mud with everything round, you never have to skillfully finesse a sharp noping edge. But are we really here to take the easy way out? I prefer to showcase our skills in the mud by adding plenty of sharpness.
Red Clover Bowl
Thanks to Billy Coulon of Evergreen Skateparks for inspiring me to design this clover. I call it the “Sell-out Clover” because it has decks and flat bottom and is not connected to the rest of the park. It can be skated as a separate session. It’s a compromise between flow and traffic management. Any compromise is selling out.
