Team Pain is honored to announce that Aspen Colorado, is getting a long overdue street addition!
Aspen is one of our earliest parks, and interestingly enough, the first skatepark ever to use colored concrete. This park has inspired many of the aesthetic skatepark design elements that you see today. Green space was critical to the design, and creating a nice open air environment where boulders were used instead of retention walls and landscaping was also used to create an organic shade filled skate experience! Featured in many skate publications and host to many skate events and demonstrations, we are hyped to have the opportunity to continue our vision of a complete Skatepark in Aspen with the inclusion of a street course!
Peep these conceptual images that show some of what we proposed.

A first look at the just completed Port Orange Skatepark renovation. Team Pain came up with a restoration plan to reshape and pour new concrete over the existing skatepark. We would like to thank the City of Port Orange for their positive attitude and willingness to be apart of this successful project. The City contributed materials like the concrete benches that were transformed into a love seat, galvanized basketball posts and square tubing that went into the ledges and a brand new fire hydrant. The Team Pain crew donated many weekend hours to make this park what it is and a big thanks goes to Chris Berry, Lance Spiker, Tony Walsh, Curt Baker, Jack Balerud, Joe Storm, Josh Rosenberg and Kyle Randall with Compressed Air Systems.
Course is scheduled to reopen this Thursday, October 24. See you then!

In the 1980′s, one of the most legendary pools was the San Juan Capistrano Pool in California. Founder of Team Pain, Tim Payne, had the opportunity to skate the infamous backyard pool and noticed it’s strengths and weaknesses. According to Tim, “the pool had an amazing deep end, but the shallow end wasn’t as good; it needed some tweaking.”
Tim thought if there could be a bowl with a similar deep end, but a shallow end that allowed you to keep your speed, it would be perfect! In 1989, Tim got the opportunity to build this “dream-bowl” when he was commissioned by Henry Finch and Nancy Moore of Charleston, SC to design and build a completely unique skatepark.
The result was the now legendary “Charleston Hangar.” The Hangar was quickly noticed by the skate industry. At the time, there wasn’t amazing skateparks popping up left and right like there are today. The Charleston Hangar became an outlet for East Coast skateboarders and helped solidify professional skateboarding on the East Coast. The bowl was eventually moved to Johns Island, SC about 10 years later.
In 2011 The Charleston Hangar Bowl was reconstructed in Arvada Colorado at one of Team Pain’s favorite park builds, and everyone that has skated it couldn’t be more stoked!
