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!

FIELD REPORT: Orlando Skate Park Revamp 5.29.15

The team has been in the demolition phase of the project for the past week, removing the preexisting hip from shallow to deep and opening up the pool, which allows for more lines and increases the overall flow. As the project moves forward the team will begin the pouring phase of the project, this is when the transformation will occur. Make sure to check in regularly for future Field Reports on the Orlando Skate Park Revamp!

We’re excited to be breaking ground in Charleston, South Carolina. The permits have been released and the construction process will take place in two phases before we come into the picture. Part 1: Improves the soft soils on site, once the site is stable, the construction phase will begin. Part 2: Consists of building the park’s facilities, once this is done we will come into the picture and begin making the skate park a reality for the community of Charleston, South Carolina! The location will be 1593 Oceanic St. where there’s 25 acres with 3.3 acres in Charleston’s Neck area, located a few miles north of downtown Charleston.The site will be closed to the public during construction for obvious safety reasons. We’re excited to be working with Hightower Construction, SGA Architecture, and we give much praise to the skatepark advocate group “Pour it Now” for being major players in making this park a reality. We will be having a public meeting sometime in June to discuss the design phase with the community at Edisto Hall, located within James Island County Park, 871 Riverland Drive, Charleston, SC 29412, the exact meeting date and time to be announced….
