You've seen them around... the skaters. Doing their stunts at the park or at the entrance/exit areas of the mall. I've wondered so many times—how come no one has provided them with a real skate park?
But thanks to Republ1c, we now have our very own skate park:
Designed by a California skate park design company, with over 450 skate parks for communities all across the world including ESPN’s X Games skate park, the XVIB Skate Park promises some super fun sessions. Made of professional grade material flown in from the US, skateboarders will love the safe and smooth ride. This skate park provides challenging obstacles such a fun box, elbow pipe, starting rail, hubba ledge, quarter pipes, and hip banks to nail their tricks. Located indoors and properly ventilated, XVIB provides comfort and shelter from the rain and heat.
Now, we know that the male population dominates this "sport," but guess what? There were quite a few hot chicks who love skateboarding, too! Check them out:
