Not something I was expecting to come across on a trip out to Shute Harbour, but it made my day. Standing around 12ft tall, this vert ramp is still under construction, but it looks the goods. I’ve called it the Flametree Halfpipe, but call it what you want.
The ramp is visible from Shute Harbour road just before the Airlie Beach Flametree Airport. That’s the small one you go skydiving from. It’s 5km down the road from the Airlie Beach Skatepark if you’re heading out to Shute Harbour. I’m not going to give you the address, but it’s not hard to find.
Note that this ramp is on private property. Ask before you go anywhere near it as the owners are likely to be skaters as well.
