Skateboarding and In line skating in Cornwall
Skateboarding was born on the west coast of the U.S.A. as a street version of surfing. Over the years it has become more and more popular and now in Europe there are many skaters, as many as in the U.S.A.
In line skating, an evolution of skating, which allows people to perform tricks in a similar way to skateboarders, has also become incredibly popular in the last few years.
Cornwall has purpose built facilities for these sports in several towns including Penzance, Camborne and Mount Hawke. Facilities at Penzance and Camborne are free.
Penzance has another skatepark on the seafront. This includes a half
pipe, a horizontal rail and a long grind/slide curb about half a metre
The structure includes: 2 fun boxes, 1 half pipe, 1 wallride and much much more. There is also an area for beginners with smaller structures and lower curbs to start sliding and grinding.
Newquay, Helston, Reawla near Camborne, Phillack near Hayle and other towns throughout Cornwall also have skateboarding parks and facilities. If you'd like to see your local skatepark featured here please send us details by email.
