Another classic Aussie skatepark that has been around forever, I remember seeing pictures of this half-pipe in magazines when I was a teenager! 14 ft of splendid vert metal that have been the home too many of this country’s finest vert skateboarders. You might even call this the original Monster. Prahran is an awesome inner-city skatepark that has a little something for everyone.
In detail; The half-pipe is a 14ft beast, solid steel, big coping, fast and a massive extended roll-in – its not for beginners! But you can always have fun on a quiet day just carving around getting a feel for it, or on busier days watching some amazing skateboarding going down. Epic.
Beside the big vert is a cracking little 5ft mini is a delight. It has smooth transitions with a nice little 6ft angled extension and coping that sits perfectly. A great little ramp for all skill levels – it reminds me a lot of the Glebe Mini.
Finally the skatepark also has an awesome street section which features a wide 2.5ft cornered bowl with a various banks and extensions. It also has an extremely versatile raised ledge with two sets of stairs (10 steps & 4 steps).
Add to that some rad locals who really made us feel welcome and you’ll understand why this is such a highly rated skatepark. Its surrounded by all kinds of amenities and services and even has a basketball court if you feel like shooting some hoops. Perfect!
