The Surf Expo was just in town, and you know what that means… We got to bring Orlando’s favorite bi-annual indoor skatepark back to life for a few days. As always people came from all over the country to try to get a piece of the action. This time around the contest was hosted by Volcom as a stop on their Wild In The Parks Tour. Here are a few pictures of some of the ripping that went on over the weekend.

Orange Country Florida is making plans to build their first quality concrete skatepark! Starting with a Skate Spot, with room to expand in the future and they want to provide a street style park that will be free and unsupervised! The County asked us to conceptualize a street skate spot for their site and we hope you can come show support and comment on the concept that we have developed. We ask the skate community to be present and show support for this very positive inclusion to Orange County. Support from local skate shops and word of mouth will also help get the message across for the expansion of this park and the need for more within Orange County!
DO YOUR PART AND ATTEND THIS MEETING!
Getting close to finishing the ditch area and moving onto the street items now! Things are looking promising at Jackson Springs. Big thanks too Compressed Air Systems and Gatorade for hooking the crew up with some free drinks!
