    One other angle from previous. Would love to put up a few plans which we think would fall in line with previously mentioned 'wants' but they're live projects at the moment..

    There is a sick park in Amsterdam that is made to blend in with the surroundings. Small blocks and banks/ hips. Loads of fun on a sunny day with some beers and bros. Plus its full of very hot MILFs.

    Disagree with this Les. Curved ledges are fun. They occur 'naturally' (Bank station ledges?) - it's only when they are too tight is when they become useless. If they got the right amount of curve on they can lock you in nicely.

    Probably pertinent to wonder whether boards will have changed much in 5 or 10 years too. I can't see them changing much but then again...

    This is me from the other week. It was a bit different to a normal shape, i skate 8.5 so going straight to a 9.5" hoverboard was a bit weird, but after a bit you get used to the change in concave. Plus the sides of building roofs have yet to be skate stopped so its all sweet, loads of spots that haven't been rinsed yet. Hopefully the hipsters wont cotton onto this and we can keep it underground without any shit sportswear shite getting involved.

    obviously i dont skate parks ever. at all. I have no business being in one .
    I found myself in the lovely town of Ojai recently and thought it would be funny to bring my board and skate the park.
    http://www.ojaiskatepark.com

    It was wicked. There was this big old prehistoric looking stone/bolder thing that kids would sort of leave their bags by . It some 'spill' near it so it looked a bit sticky. Anyway, the park was probably great. Im not proficient enough to even tell what would be good but i skated the shit out of the rock.
    Blasting wallies out of it was so much fun. I tried switch frontside ollies into it and some local totally comped me and did it first go.
    If i carve the massive bowl could float ollies over the hip and all that , im sure i would. But even then i'd still be all about wallying the rock.

    peace

    Scandinavia is often ahead of Europe, and not only when it comes to skateboarding.
