This park is simply amazing! Its fukn huge and not just in area but sheer size. You can skate any tranny from 2ft quarters to 17ft bowls to 25ft+ fullpipe. The park has- mondo bowl-10-17ft with tunnel to 25ft fullpipe and a capsuled corner. Double capsule bowl-is about 9ft with granite coping-steep as and fun as fuck. Six pack-only spines in the whole park-wtf? and they are big with no flatbottom to hit them. The bowl is about 8ft and is crazy-omar wouldnt even sk8 it! Mini bowl-#8 shape with 2ft to 3ft tranny-fun to learn. combo bowl from 5-6ft to 10 ft-prob is 10ft section is over vert. Really fun setup and has big bankwall and a nice rollin. The street section has everything-quarters stairs rails,actually the whole pk is a plaza style. Nice funbox-pretty standard convic street setup. Also has a lil mini to sesh. Penut bowl-4ft to 7ft.really tight but fun for carvie lines. The vert ramp is about 100ft wide and 14ft to 17ft or so-two huge roll ins-one being at least 20ft.gettin lil rusty though.and last of all is comp section-complete with euro rails, hip, funbox-jumpbox, quarters and vert ramp 12-13ft.this area has stadium seating and has a huge big screen tv so u can watch the comp from the rest of the pk and has a built in speaker system throughout the park, plus side is comp section is portable and will be shipped to bj for a while for gravity games. Park is run by smp and is free, they have tried to impose laws such as no filming without permissinon and no glass bottles etc but they go unheeded. There is an smp shop there but it sux. They built a bar there so beer is available. Built by www.convic.com Thanks Jamie for the pics and words. www.smpskatepark.cn
