Saturday, March 14, 2009
10:00 am – 2:00 pm
T-Shirts to the first 100 registered skaters! Door prizes to attendees including stickers, beanies, and six “American Ramp Company” decks. Registration begins at 9am. With special guest demonstration and autographs by Jud Heald, American Ramp Company sponsored pro skater.
The Island’s new (and only) skate park is located at Demere Park, near the beach and Pier Village on St. Simons Island. The park is open daily from 8am to 8pm, and admission is free. The park design is geared toward younger skaters, with a variety of elements that are challenging for intermediate skaters, but easy enough to help novice skaters develop their skateboarding skills. The park includes two 3-foot quarter pipes, two 5-foot quarter pipes, two 2-foot bank ramps with flat decks and round grind rail, one square grind rail, one manual pad, one skate bench, and two 3-foot half pipes.
Demere Skate Park is the first of two skate parks planned for Brunswick and The Golden Isles. A second, larger and more difficult park is in the planning stages. It is anticipated that it will be built at the North Glynn Recreation Park in Brunswick.
