using the skatepark
This is when you drop in before another rider who was waiting before you. Its essentially the skateparks version of queue jumping.
When you’re standing at the top of a busy ramp its important to wait your turn. You should let everyone who was waiting before you ‘drop in’ and make their run. If you accidentally snake another park user, make sure you move out their way and to a safe spot as soon as you can. This applies to anyone who is waiting; whether they are riding BMX, Skateboard, Aggressive Skates, or Stunt Scooter.
Once you’ve dropped in and completed a run you should wait at your next ramp and do the same all over again. This gives everyone a chance to use the park and keeps it safe. Too many people riding the ramps at once is dangerous and can cause collisions and injuries
The metal pole at the top of of most quarter pipes is the coping. You will see many riders across all skatepark sports using it for grinding and stalling. Its very important that you don’t hang your bike/board/blades/scooter over the coping while waiting your turn to drop into the ramp. If your equipment is sat on the top of the coping it will be in the way and will annoy anyone who wants to make use of it! This rule applies to anyone who wants to make use of it! The rule applies to anyone who is using the skatepark. Don’t be afraid to ask someone (politely) to move off the ramp if you want to use it.
Standing on ramps in any skatepark is very dangerous! As most skateparks flow between ramps, jump-boxes and rails, standing in the middle can cause accidents. If you fall on a run, or don’t have enough speed to make it up a ramp, try to leave the course safely or move out of the way to let people on a run pass by. When riding across a park check both ways to make sure no one is coming. If you run into anyone make sure you apologies. Its not the end of the world and should be a big deal once you’ve cleared the air.
Don’t be greedy with your run! Try to do a few tricks and then wait your turn at the top of another ramp allowing people to do their runs.
It doesn’t matter if someone is on a BMX, scooter, board or blades; everyone has an equal right to be in the park. Let people use the park as much as you and your mates.
This rule also applies to beginners. Everyone was once a beginner in the skatepark, so remember that when you’re shredding the ramp and theres a little kid in the way, don’t shout abuse at them, but talk them through how to use the park safely.
If you use the park properly and treat other users with respect and they will treat you the same.
When you’re having a break from riding don’t go onto or sit on any part of the skatepark course. People wandering around the park or sitting on grind-boxes will get in the way of anyone on a run and can cause unnecessary accidents and collisions.
The Shred House has a spectator area and reception area, which is the best place to stand while having a break
