The new St Ives Skatepark by Maverick – Skateparks Ep 8

On your next annual bike tour through Cornwall, you might want to ditch the old two-wheeler and exchange it for some pushwood. The new St Ives skatepark has just opened through the combined efforts of the St Ives Skatepark Project, the local council and Maverick Skateparks

Introduce us to the park – tell us its name, where it is, what kind of park will it be (more street-oriented, just a bowl, a plaza...), its approximate dimensions, if it’s already open to the public, that sort of stuff.

St Ives Skateparkis in Penbeagle Lane. It's a progressive mix of street and transitional terrain. It's huge! It's a free to use, public space.

Is there any feature of the park that you’re particularly happy with, that came out really nice or is really fun to skate?

The Vortex and the Pool came out so good. They are a joy to look at and a joy to ride!

Any dream trick or line you’d like to see go down in any of the park’s features or areas?

Seeing the local riders going upside down in the Vortex is awesome!
