Skate Park... Unleashed

Do Not Disturb, Sess in Progress at the
New Chesterfield Skate Park

With a window in the wet and wank weather, we decided to follow up a lead we got from some local skaters, word on the street was that Chez had a new skate park!!

The covert skaters said that it was situated above the car park at a new B&Q, just off the roundabout onto Chez.

So with the early morning sun a blazin and the traction control off we sped towards this reputed little gem. The Stig would have been impressed with the time it took the Urban Assault Vehicle to get to our ultimate destination,  and with the promise of Smedders and the Imagination UK crew from Notts turning up, it looked like a wicked day was about to commence.

Get your trucks round that

A lush site sculptured in crete, situated beside a scenic lake(massive puddle made by the run off from the park) which took its toll on drenching boards and bearings.

Josh C, halfcab flip the slippery nipple

The surface is as slick as a Mo Fo.
Story goes that grannies come out after dark with a generator, lights, buffers and dusters. They take all night to get a smooth waxy finish on the surface of the park to catch out any weiry skater during daylight hours... naughty!

It was cool to see Sean Currie shredding with a kickflip noseslide

Our own hot rocks Dave shows us how to do a varial flip out of the nipple hip.

A big up to to Smedders, and a few of the Imagine crew from Notts: Josh C, Sam B, Chris A, Lewis B and C Culdron. Bless you.
