Ring of Fire Skatepark

Well Im sure at some time in history this was an amazing skatepark, but what remains is nothing but remnants of the past. This may even be closed by now as its genuinely a fire/safety hazard. We did manage to at least get in and take some photos tho most of it was un-skatable at the time.

What used┬áto be there was 2 levels of indoor skateboarding awesomeness. The main feature would probably be the wooden bowl upstairs the had a 5ft shallow end transitioning up to 8ft at the deep end. Complete with pool style coping and a vert wall – beautiful! Alongside that was cracking little 3ft mini with an extension that looked perfect to jam tricks on.

The second floor featured a hacked together wooden street course with all kinds of banks, rails, funboxes and quarters. It looked like a lot of fun, but the ceiling was low and surface fairly slippery. We did manage a bit of a skate here but the wooden surface was pretty hacked up and needed to be fully redone.

While we didn’t really get to skate the Ring of Fire, I’m really glad we did get to at least see it, I can imagine this was the spot years ago. Great to be able to capture a piece of history before it’s gone.
