Before the Grand Opening of the Zephyrhills Skate Park tomorrow, we thought we would tempt anyone that’s attending by giving a little Quality Control teaser. Every skate park we build goes through a stringent quality control process during construction by the Team Pain crew to ensure every inch of the park is up to the quality standards inherent of a custom designed and built skate park. This park may not be large but it packs a punch and is a super fun place to skate! Check out these shots and go skate!!
The new skate park in Zephyrhills, Florida is quickly becoming a well-rounded visual treat. The China-Bank has a hip going in the middle of it that adds dozens of options, and a manhole volcano on the corner that is equally as awesome. The bowl is ready to go, and the colored concrete on the flat bottom matches the tiles and makes this bowl almost as exciting to look at as it is to skate. If you look closely, you will notice that the flat bar on top of the bank is actually made of a piece of an actual railroad track. With the train running directly across the street from the park, this rail-road themed flat bar makes this skate park feel right at home here in Zephyrhills.
As soon as we finished the new Breckenridge, Co park the locals came in and immediately starting ripping. Here is a video by Taylor DeHart that perfectly documents the completed park as well as the amazing talent that helps make up Colorado’s awesome skate scene. Great work from everybody involved with this one.
Thank you to everybody for being patient while we remodeled the Breckenridge, Colorado Skate Park. The new park turned out better than we ever imagined, and it is now officially open. Now get out there and enjoy the beautiful weather!
We’ve all seen a snake in a tree before, but have you ever seen a tree in a snake? I think it is safe to say that this snake run is going to be equally as photogenic as it is fun.
Saturday August 2nd there is going to be multiple Best Trick Contests at our Lake Vista Skate Park in St. Petersburg, FL. This is more than a contest though, this is an attempt to raise awareness to show how necessary it is for the City of St. Pete to move forward with their plans to build a regional sized skate park. Maybe while you are there you can chat with the St. Pete Skatepark Alliance and learn a thing or two about getting your city a skate park built. We will see you Saturday for an awesome day of skating for a good cause with great people!
June 21st is a day that is jammed packed with events all over world for skateboarders. This year The Smithsonian National Museum of American History and The Polk County Museum of Art are putting on an amazing event at our very own Lake Bonny Skate Park in Lakeland, FL.

There will be many special guests in attendance and something interesting for everyone to be a part of. Mark your calendars now, this is an event that you will not want to miss!!
We are proud to announce that next Saturday, April 19th is the Grand Opening of our new Northwest Skatepark in Jackson Springs, FL. Here is Bert Wootton doing some quality control testing just for you. Be sure to come out on Saturday to help us break in this awesome park. Photo by: Stephen Knight.
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.
