After a decade of campaigning, awareness-raising and bloody-minded tenacity on the part of the local skateboarding, BMX and related communities it is with great pleasure that we can report that Concrete Waves skatepark, Newquay is finally here and yes, it’s incredible.
With construction complete and ribbon-cutting done, Concrete Waves officially opened to the public last week and is calling Siren-like to any and all of you out there.
Thankfully in 2018, the construction of excellent skateparks across the UK is no longer a rare thing but, construction of a skatepark on this scale, with a lay out as inspired and brilliantly realised as this one, is still absolutely worth shouting about.
Huge respect to everybody involved in whatever capacity in making Concrete Waves a reality – this place should represent a new bench mark for all UK parks to follow in its wake.
Any councillors who happen across this, please take note: this is the correct way to invest in the future of your community!

With the above very firmly in mind, we headed down to Cornwall last week to have a look around this behemoth, catch up with Div Adam, and chat to see the good people at Maverick to get a little more background on the project. Read on, check the photos/video and get inspired – this is what’s possible with enough perseverance!
