FIELD REPORT: Concrete in Pueblo, CO 7.10.15

Concrete pouring has begun and the guys are working steadily on the bowl area of our Pueblo, Colorado project. The bowl featured below is 9.5ft  in the deep end and 6ft in the shallow area, featuring a bonus corner which opens up some options. It would be insane, to see a gap from deep to shallow over the bonus pocket, anyone in Pueblo, CO up for it!!? The second bowl is 8ft in the deep end and 5ft in the shallow, ideally a more user friendly option. Remember to check in regularly and follow us on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with all our projects!

Design Workshop: Pueblo, Colorado – Street Area Concept

DWPueblo NEWSTREET 2 copy

 

Our Pueblo, Colorado project is currently in progress and we’re stoked to give you guys a sneak peek of the current concept renderings we’ve been working on. The concept above is for the street area that will be separate from the bowl area and offers a wide variety of obstacles to choose from. Let’s take an in depth look at what this concept really has to offer before it becomes a reality.

Heavily geared towards the “Street Skater” demographic with a slight sprinkle of transition to allow for adequate flow. We’ve incorporated a solid selection of flat bars and hand rails to choose from, that range in all shapes and sizes. Let’s focus on the image seen directly below, notice the kicker to round rail option that also doubles as a bump to gap. The long round rail set on the mellow bank on the opposing side of the kicker is low enough to be skated from flat as well. This allows for skaters to stray away from the traditional style of only going down a rail and opens up the option for the rail to be skated both ways, up or down. If you’re feeling extra froggy and want to go full gnar you can even take your chances from flat; going up and over the gap and landing into the kicker. A hefty challenge to any of those in Pueblo who have adequate pop!

Now let’s direct our attention to the opposite side of the long round rail and kicker set up, just before the taco transition obstacle, towards the end of the park, we have another similar obstacle. As you can see better in “Image Three” below, we offer a more user friendly bump to gap/rail option. What’s different you might ask!? Notice the ledge/Hubba attached to the side, this allows for those who aren’t into rails or simply beginners, a smaller scale, less intimating option. This obstacle also has the potential to be multi functional as well.

Let’s now check out “Image Four” below, there’s a lot of unique features here including a step up, manual pads, standard ledges, and a couple rails. Let’s specifically focus on the “Coast to Coast” square rail located in the center. From my personal experience, it’s rare to come across a rail at this length at a skate park. Being a user friendly height and not too high but very hefty in length allowing for that “T-pud” combo style of technical skating. Let’s not forget to mentioned the endless possibilities it offers if one uses their imagination.

We’ve covered most of the center area and it’s obstacles and possibilities. Now we’re going to take a look at the outer surrounding areas. As you can see in “Image 5″ below we have that sprinkle of transition added to the mix. This allows for a bit of diversity and has a huge impact on the flow of any skate park. The feature that stands out most is the hipped brick China Bank with a slight escalator.This obstacle is fairly unique and looks like a blast to skate for all skaters at all levels. It’s multi functional and gives the user something different and challenging to skate that they might otherwise not be accustomed to. In the far back left corner of “Image Five”  we have that taco obstacle we mentioned early. This obstacle offers the perfect transition for beginners and street skaters who want to mix it up a bit. Lastly, we have the stair set with dual Hubbas. This is a street skaters dream… you have two perfect Hubbas with the ability to be skated both ways regardless of what stance you are. The hefty stair set will allow for those Baker style skaters to get buck and huck! Well that’s a wrap for this segment of Design Workshop! We look forward to bringing Pueblo, CO a killer skate park and we hope you enjoyed your sneak peek!

EVENT TRACKER:Go Skate Day at Orlando Skate Park /Grand Re-Opening

The Grand Re-Opening of the Orlando Skate Park on Go Skateboarding Day this past Sunday was a major success. It was a hot one, but that didn’t keep the local skaters of Orlando from tearing up the newly renovated park. The day consisted of multiple Best Trick Contests on various obstacles throughout the park including, the newly renovated bowl, the freshly added pyramid/rainbow rail in the street course, as well as the newly added step up in the beginner course. It was awesome to hear all the positive feedback from the local skaters and we’re beyond stoked to have done our part in helping make it all possible.In the afternoon, there was a solid session in the big bowl with our guys, Jake “Poptart” Welch, Nick Murphy, and Joe Storm putting on a show for the crowds. It was awesome to see skaters of all ages out there in the mix and tearing it up! We’re beyond stoked on all the positive feedback from the skate scene of Orlando and grateful to have had the opportunity to make the Orlando Skate Park just that much better! Stay tuned for the video recap coming soon!
