Poway Skatepark

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: Concrete Pow-der

Poway skatepark rocks.

It's kinda funny that the NorCAL builder (Wormhoudt skateparks - 831.426.8424) came down to the very bottom of SoCAL and kicked some ass. This place is a little small, but it's fun. And just to add injury to the some of the other parks in San Diego, Poway is pretty much hassle free. No fee, no waivers, no locked gates. That's the way it's done. Makes all the other parks look like they're run by scared little girls...

Speaking of parks "run by scared little girls" - they're fun, but they're a big pain in the ass - check out Robb Field, the bowls at Coronado, and the new park ['03] called Memorial [aka "Barrio Logan"].

Directions: Poway is north of San Diego and south of Escondido off of highway 15. Coming from San Diego, take the 15 north and exit Poway Rd heading east. You'll cross Pomerado and then you'll make a right [south] on Bowron Rd. One block down you'll find the skatepark on your left at the intersection of Bowron and Civic Center.

^ Welcome to Poway Skatepark -
please notice they DO have lights!

^ Snake run is rockin' with
more hips than a rap video.
The designer has another
park that's similar in
Novato CA... and yet another big
vert wall at Sunnyvale CA. Good parks.

^ SHITEO: Jarret Barry does
real nice on the backside
kickflip tailslide to fakie!

^ That little tabletop kicker
gives you easy pop to clear the
flat and come thru w/ speed...very
much like Wormhoudt's tabletop
at Camarillo CA.

^ SHITEO: Troy
Gagliano in orbit off
a little hipper at Poway

^ Banker on the backside
of the snake section...
