The Florida Skatepark Series rolls on, this time visiting the Orlando public skatepark. It had a huge turnout and some great riding happened in every class. Both Trey Jones and Mark Mulville put on a show, but the win in pro was taken by Brain Fox, who is someone you will no doubt here more about soon.
New Zealand Pinball Machine Skatepark
Damn, this place looks super wild. There’s a skate contest going down in New Zealand where they build a $500,000 skatepark to look like a pinball machine. It doesn’t say if BMX is welcome, but the guy doing most of the talking is chilling with a bike, so I’d hope so. Watch it to the end, the reporter takes it trying to drop in.
Spotted on DIG.
Etnies Skatepark Pegs Petition
A few weeks back it was announced that the Etnies skatepark in Lake Forest would no longer allow pegs in their park. Now you might assume Etnies is behind this, but in reality they just sponsor the park, and the park is ran by the city. Check out a few words from Etnies and then find out how to sign the petition…
“etnies was shocked and disappointed to discover that the City of Lake Forest banned BMX pegs from their public skatepark. In fact, we heard nothing of this proposed ban until AFTER it happened and it should be noted that the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest, although it bears our name, is managed and run by the City of Lake Forest, not by etnies or any etnies personnel. ”
