Skatepark Obstacles

MINNEAPOLIS — Skatewave introduces its Urban Series line of skatepark equipment. The series is modeled after items found on city streets and plazas, including picnic tables, benches, stairs, fire hydrants and highway barriers. The items are designed specifically for riders and can be grouped together to create the feeling of an urban plaza, or paired with quarter pipes, launch boxes and other obstacles to bring a street-skating dimension to traditional skateparks. The first item in the Urban Series is a 6-foot Skate Table, which has a tubular steel frame topped with 11-gauge steel support plates. Polyethylene “boards” are attached to the steel plates for grinding performance. The two-inch thick grinding boards are also interchangeable. It weighs over 500 pounds and is constructed with stainless steel tamper-resistant hardware. The top surface is 27.5″ high and its benches are 15″ high. PVC-coated steel panels fill the spaces between the benches and the top of the table. The Urban Series also includes two height-adjustable Skate Benches that measure six feet in length. Buyers can pick between height ranges of 11″-15″ or 16″-20″. The Urban Series also includes its new Skate Stairs, a bright red Fire Hydrant, a 14″ Kicker Launch Ramp and two Skate Barriers that can be filled with sand or water for added stability.
