Good Bye New West, Hello Mission Skatepark

Hippie Mike was host to a farewell jam at the New Westminster skatepark. Located half an hour from Vancouver, this park has been around for a long time.

When it was first constructed, there were many opinions about the design and quality of the park. There are many problems with the park.

Coping that is buried on the flat top of the bowl.

Cracking concrete and the foundation underneath has fell away a number of times.

Even with these problems, skaters made the most of it. New West had its park and would skate it their way.

Then we go to one of the newest skateparks in BC. Mission skatepark held another Youth week skateboard contest that was also hosted by Hippie Mike.

This guy holds it down for skateboarding events in the Vancouver area.

Watch the video and see how each event unfolded.

White Rock Skatepark 2014

The Vancouver Bowl series made a stop at the White Rock Skatepark. Usually this stop on the 20 year long Bowl Series has the smallest turn out.

This year was different. With some great carpooling, a lot of skaters turned out. They made the drive from Vancouver, Surrey, Maple Ridge, North Vancouver, and some came all the way from Squamish.

This bowl has a unique design. The flowing curves or Seylynn, Griffin, and Whistler bowl, are straigthened. This creates a fast capsule like bowl with mellow ditch at the top, two hips, a fun NOPING half pipe and a steep and deep bowl at the bottom.

Watch the video to see what this park is all about. Also check out Seb’s Air Runner at the end.
