Redwood City Skatepark

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free[dom]
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: Radwood City

"I live in Redwood City. Our new skatepark has just opened, I think you guys should come down sometime and record it on your website. It's about 15 minutes away from Greer skatepark in Palo Alto. Kinda small, but it has a great bowl! It's like a 6 - 9 ft bowl with a roll-in and coping. See ya there soon!"

- Pat: Mar '03

Directions: Take the 101 toward the Woodside/Redwood City area, and exit Woodside Rd (route 84) heading west. Pass Bay and Spring, then make a right [north] on Middlefield. Continue for about 10 blocks, then make a left [west] on Jefferson. Continue west on Jefferson, cross Hudson and Nevada, then make a left [south] on St Francis - it's a small suburban street, so keep your eyes open. The skatepark is in Red Morton park.

^ Like a lot of the shots on this
SKATEparkLIST, this one's a little
warped... but the bowl at Redwood
is even better than it looks!
Perfect coping, nice walls, and best of
all, a 9 ft center-piece for vertical
thrills and highspeed blasters back at
the surrounding bowls and round hits.
Big props to Zac Wormhoudt's crew
[831.426.8424] for the hard work and
implementation... California is finally
catching up in the skatepark world.

^ SHITEO: Nick
Gaston with a hard-
driving smith grind
in this animation

^ The bowl's spine
can be seen in this
shot, as well as the
9 ft extension section
in the background

^ SHITEO: Making
skateboarding look sooo
good - Jered Ryals!!!

^ SHITEO: Without
a doubt, the most
technical shiteo we've
ever featured: Craig
Nash with a tailslide
kickflip out. Day-amn!

^ Uhhh, the little "bowl"
seems like a mistake. Too
shallow. If you can't get
a clean board slide on the
coping, it's not steep, or big,
enough. Gotta throw this
one back... wasted space.

^ Again... wasted space. See the
stairs in the middle? What are those
for? There's no run-up, and where would
you land? There are some good ledges in this
park, but... they should have put some
tabletop style features in this line,
instead. Replace this monotony with some
flow and some pop-pop. That gap on the
right gets used, but the line needs more!
