Wave Rave Skatepark

* Outdoor: Wood / Concrete
* Pay: ???
* Vert / Trannie / Street
* Rating: Summertime Ravin'

As of the winter of 2002/2003, Mammoth is getting some pretty good snow - in fact, Mammoth is supposed to be a sweet place to "shroupe" and "shred" and all that. However, summertime has its advantages, too. I'm sure more than one of the local fellas make a post-thaw mission to Wave Rave to hit that vert ramp - cross training in aerial tactics in the high altitude.

It's a sweet little park... outdoor, but partially shaded. The vert ramp, with it's big roll-in, was in good shape as of the summer of 2002. The miniramp, complete with a quirky spine, was cool, too. It had a section w/ pool coping. The street course was jenky, but rideable. Really, if you're passing thru in the dry season, bring your pads and check it out!

Oh yeah, there's another skatepark in Mammoth, but we're not doing you any favors telling you about it...

Directions: Wave Rave is real obvious. It's a big "board shop" on the left [south?] side of Main St as you head toward the resort. The exact address is 3203 Main St. For more info, call them direct at 760.934.2471.

^ Big vert woodie at
Wave Rave in
Mammoth Lakes, CA





^ Uhhhh... didn't get
this guy's name. Good
skater, though.



^ This section is
behind the vert
ramp... kind of
part of the street
course area.



^ The miniramp was
real tempting. It's
wide, lots of options -
see the pool coping?



^ This is a little
quarterpipe...
it ALSO has pool
coping, but this
baby goes a little
over-vert! Skater
Island
has an
oververt section, too.





^ See the cracks
in the fun box...
as of summer of 2002,
street course needs
a little help.





^ Here's a cross-view from the
miniramp, looking back at the
vert ramp.





^ Here's what's-his-name going
over the channel on the vert ramp...
told you he's a ripper!
