Sidewalk Concrete Waves Edit + The Skateboarding Show in Newquay
The general buzz around Newquay’s brand new Concrete Waves continues here, with Brett Dye heading down to get a number of interviews for The Skateboarding Show relating to how the jewel in Cornwall’s skatepark crown became a reality. Below you can see all three – with a couple of the local skaters, with one of the main people involved with the build and with one of the town councillors involved in making the project happen.
From the outset it’s obvious that the park is going to be a must visit for anyone with a taste for transitions, with the opening week seeing visitors from all over the UK making the trip down to check out the lines – and that’s even before Boardmasters hits the weekend after next! Absolute madness can be expected over that weekend, we have no doubt. Peep the interviews below to get a sense of the skatepark’s back story, as well as our interview with crew at Maverick about the park’s building process, once you’ve enjoyed the brief edit below from a couple of sessions with Will Golding, Jake Sparham, Adam Moss, Harry While, Finn McCormick, Josh Rounding and Matt Beer.
Interview one, with Harry While and Chaz Merryweather discuss just how much hype there is around the new park, with a brief appearance from Beth Rickard.
Interview two, with Maverick builder Ian Jennings discussing how the actual planning and building process progressed.
Interview three, with Ollie Monk discussing the skatepark from the council’s point of view and why they’re stoked on Concrete Waves.
To finish things off, here’s a further dose of Newquay gnar from TR7 Skateshop featuring Jake Sparham, Harry While, Beth Rickard, Andy Gant, Joe Haddon, Matty Page and Div Adam. If you don’t find yourself looking at a road trip after ingesting all this Cornish visual stimulus, then there’s not much we can do for you…
