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!
We are proud to announce Stop #1 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks this January 11, 2014. Volcom will be hosting the Surf Expo in Orlando, FL so it’s going to be a good one! Only 100 spots available in this special event, so come early for registration.
The new Memorial Skatepark is on its way, and with the coping and pours being completed only a few more things need to be contributed for the overall completion, including mother nature. Colorado got heavy snow this winter so grab your snowboards and hit the slopes. We’ll keep you updated, but for now here’s some photos.
Saturday, December 14th, 2013 marked the official grand re-opening of the Port Orange Skatepark. Port Orange Vice-Mayor Donald Burnette was there along with several representatives from City Council and the Parks and Recreation Department to re-dedicate the park to a swarm of extremely stoked skaters. New concrete was poured over an old poorly designed and built park and new features were added to create one of the raddest parks in Florida! A win-win for everyone. Jake “Poptart” Welch, Drew Hoffman, Keith Baldassare, Nick Barwick, and local ripper Devin Bagnoli were shredding and putting on a clinic for everyone. Photos by Nick Nicks.
Arvada Colorado is revamping the Memorial Park Skatepark and we were asked to replace their old metal ramp park, and turn it into a skate spot. Here are some shots from the first week. Check back for some more pictures next week!
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.
