This park is a huge outdoor 50,000 sq ft concrete skatepark. The vibe at this park is very different than any other skatepark I've been to, as is the vibe in any downtown area. Nonetheless, it is a most convenient park to get to and skate. There are usually tons of people there, all doing their own thing, trying to land tricks and just hanging out. It's not my favorite skatepark, simply because of the concrete surface, but with anything worth doing in life, you adapt and overcome. This skatepark is very slippery but it is very fun with lots to do for any age, any ability.
I met another girl there to skate with. She liked my airs so I taught her the grab for a frontside air on a hip. I think airing hips is much easier, so that's where I started her. She did well and eventually started landed them. I didn't skate much but I enjoyed teaching her frontside hip airs and boneless to tail from flat to ledge.
Much of what I do this summer will be teaching other girls how to skateboard and play roller derby. I'm getting a head start with my niece and others around here. Stay tuned for more info about the upcoming trip.... ;)
