Skate Parkin' - Atlantic Beach Rotary Club Skatepark

I briefly wrote about this park in the Go Skate Day/Bangers for Bucks post, but I thought I would take the time to make a seperate post to talk about this interesting transition-themed park. Basically, this park is like the cement equivalent of the Animal Chin ramp, in bowl form.

The bowl of the park makes a unique formation, with a high rollercoaster in in the middle that sends you straight over the tunnel to the parking lot. Or, through the tunnel, if you aim it just right and need an excuse to not go to work for a few weeks.

There is a shallow corner with quick transitions, a huge deep end, and a small snakerun along the back of the deep end.

Between the deck of the shallow end and the bleachers/seating area, there is a long quarterpipe that extends all the way from near the entrance, to the bottom of the snake run on the opposite side of the south end of the park.

It's been a few months since I've been to this park, but chances are it's still exactly the same. Check out the photos of the park, but remember - pictures don't do the place justice, and this place is built for transition skaters with experience.

You can check out more images of this park in my 'Go Skate Day' Gallery here. Go skate it, and have fun. Chances are, you might just find Animal Chin there.

On another note, note the new buttons along the right side of the homepage - these buttons serve as easy navigation to key points of the website that I've found people look for the most. This park review marks the introduction of this feature, and more parks will be added as I get around to it. Just click on the 'Skatepark' button on the right for a summary of all the reviews I've posted so far.
