There are plenty of talents I wish I had, and singing and skateboarding are at the top of the list. I’ve got wakeboarding and wakeskating down, but no matter how much I practice, I’ve never been able to skateboard. Maybe this new park will give me some incentive to keep trying!
This newly opened, 30,000 square foot, state-of-the-art park is seriously awesome. It has everything a skater could want, with a bowl and plenty of streetscapes and rails for grinding. It’s like something you’d find in Tony Hawk’s backyard.
It’s such a cool addition to the city of Austin park scene, complete with murals by local artists and a piece of public artwork you can actually skate on!
The use of helmets and pads is not required but highly recommended. I would like to thank my friend, who is also a photographer, for this great picture of the skate park. Great shot, James! http://jamesgrayson.com/photography/
