New Park-Mansfield

Our friends at Maverick Sk8 Park design invited Hooked to their newest creation.
Damn it was cool... so consequently the nipple was fully erect... Ian bones out a melon.

We couldn't believe our luck a window in the weather, as we rolled up to participate in a Maverick promo shoot.

It had been raining throughout the night and with the threat of snow hanging over the venue we thought it was going to be a wash out. As we exited the urban assault vehicle and climbed the brow of Fisher Lane Park hill, the sun cast a crimson ribbon of light on what looked like a park sent from heaven.

Maverick has really out done themselves this time- with what was an originally a state side idea of having multi coloured crete( in this instance natural, red and black) to add an almost gastronomic slant to this small but yummy structure!

With a herb garden in the middle of the park(grow what you will kids) and various blocks, taco, nipple, mini, dining table like granite topped grind slab and some challenging angles, it adds up to a wicked flowing fun filled time for all abilities.

But hey don't take our word for it, go check it!

The Park officially opens tomorrow 22nd Dec. with a ribbon cutting/finger numbing session.

Thanks to Sam Reynolds for this pic.

Thanks to Sam Reynolds for this un... Had to chase the ducks away for the shot!

The park possy on the prowl.

A few expansion cracks have to be filled before the general peeps were allowed to thrash it.

Had a quick piss while no one was lookin... don't think anyone noticed, but couldn't hide the puddle... slam.

Granite grinding table... seconds anyone?

Dave Ford... Rippin in the Mini.

Yep I've tried everything to clean the view finder, Jiff, bleach, emery board, wet an dry!

A monument to the mini goddess!

Ian... On the Drop.

Melons the mini.

Dave looks on... one foot to fakie.

To blunt or not to blunt that is the fakie... I mean question...
