* Rating: Beach-style bone breaking

Grover Beach - just a few miles south of San Luis Obispo - is one of the 805's finest skateparks. A real standout, the park has serious flow, hessian-style walls and hits pushing locals and visitors to look to the sky for death or glory.

The park offers a variety of different terrain. There are ledges/benches and a stair/handrail combination for the tech dogs. But the standout feature of this park is the spine between the u-shaped bowl and the halfpipe channel. That's where it's at. We saw guys air over the spine, rocket out to either side, tailtap transfer from one side to another... sweet! This is the only park like this in the 805 - w/ the exception of Simi's Skatelab. One word of *caution* before you go: Bring pads. They definitely ticket for riding padless - we saw it happen.

Directions: Get on the 101 and head toward Pismo/Grover Beach. Exit Grand Ave and head west toward the beach. At Oak Park hang a right [north] and then an immediate left on Ramona Ave. The park will be on your left [south side of the street]. It's right behind the Burger King on the corner of Grand and Oak Park. Rip it up...
