Then visit the detail page of the place you would like to review. Scoll down the page until you see reviews. Type your comments and review in the box, select the star rating you wish to give the place, then hit submit review.

What should I review?

Anything and everything you have experience with. This is sharing of quality information, skaters for skaters. If you’ve experienced something, visited a skatepark, tried a product, let other skateboarders know your thoughts.

Why do some have lots of reviews and others nothing?

There are a lot of reasons for this. Some skateparks are more popular whilst others and barely visited. Some shops have asked their customers through their social media and newsletters to come over and add some thoughts. Others have not. These are just a few.

GENERAL

Do you skate?

We started skateboarding in our mid teens and we are both now in our forties. So to answer your question, yes. We started in the era of big boards with big ramps. Where street was something we did en route to another ramp. Rodney Mullen was amazing at what he did, but what he did was strange. Tony Hawk was king. And these days it’s not much different.

We still hit up ramps and bowls multiple times a week, but we do also mix a bit more street in there nowadays. We probably can’t do a quarter of the tricks we once could, but we keep searching for animal chin. Skate or die.
