Best Skateboard Park – 2012 The Village Voice Best of Award

The Hudson River Skate Park located at Pier 62 in Manhattan, NY was recently voted the “Best Skateboard Park” by The Village Best of Awards. The 15,000-square-foot skate park opened two years ago and features areas for beginners as well as those brave (or crazy) enough to try out the enclosed bowl with 10-foot walls. Visually, it’s also one of the coolest, as it sits adjacent to the Hudson River and has open grassy areas, benches, and a carousel. The park is open year-round, and it’s free.

ENCINITAS YMCA SKATE PARK

The expansion of the new 5,000 SF Mini-Land section of the skate park has begun! To keep up with the growing popularity of skateboarding, the YMCA has pioneered the concept of offering skateboarding lessons to beginners. Parents have recognized the benefits of skaters learning skateboarding basics, falling safety and skate etiquette and our current lesson program has reached max capacity. As a result, part of our proposed redesign is to expand our Mini-Land lesson area complete with spectator area to meet the growing demand of skateboarding lessons.

SHURIKEN SHANNON AT OB SKATE PARK

Kicking off CCS’ 40 Years Of Santa Cruz week on The Corner is one of the team’s newest pro rider additions—San Diego’s own Shuriken Shannon. Looking very comfortable and at home in his local park in Ocean Beach, it’s not wonder why Santa Cruz recruited this all terrain street marauder for the team.

Smooth tranny skills including lofty switch and regular backside flips back-to-back matched with all around creativity on the streets make Shuriken a pleasure to watch shred. Check him out in the special Santa Cruz edition of Trick Mix.
