The Park Course focuses on providing multiple speed lines for pros to boost big transfers, as well as, key areas to put down difficult tricks. A few of the stand-out features this year include: the Red Bull tombstone, a shallow-end pool pocket, and a tunneled bridge gap.
The Street Course, reflecting your neighborhood school-grounds, will no doubt strike a cord with every skate generation. Some of it’s stand-out features include: a curved brick wall, lengthy hand-rails and of course, the gap inspired by the famous skate spot at Carlsbad High (RIP). L.A. artist, James Haunt, will be painting a mural on the course. California RampWorks’ Lead Designer, Dug Ketterman, said “I want these parks to feel like you’re skating something that shouldn’t be skated.”
