X Ramps Skatepark - Brooklyn, NYC
Pics & Review by The Chraveler - Submit your park here!
There's a lot of good park crammed into the tight space over there at X-Ramps (another cheesy name however!). The four foot spine mini is really smooth and fast with good coping - might be one of my favorite mini ramps yet. It also has a roll-through and a kinked verty extension. Six foot mini is tight-trannied and quick. The street course is unique, with a funky design built to adapt to the existing warehouse floor - It's flows more like a big ramp then a trad street area. The roll in ramps down to the vert wall are built over an existing steep concrete flat bank that might have been a nice feature if left uncovered by ramps (at least a small part of it anyways). Despite its tight confines, there is a good amount of flow and lines to be found in the street course. Couple the roll-ins up onto the platform with the vert wall and the super long super ledge and you're racing around that place in no time! One downside is that this park can get crowded real quick, with a grom-slalom situation occuring with as few as twenty people in the whole park. There is a small beginner room with a couple of ramps to help alleviate the crowds a bit. Helmets required, rather expensive ($12-$14) but worth it to me to skate a fun little mini during the hellacious northeast winter...more info here at the X-Ramps site...
