  4. What are Park and Street?

    The National Championships will test competitors in two different disciplines – street and park skateboarding. So what’s the difference?

    Park skateboarding takes place in purpose-built skate parks, based around half-pipes, quarter-pipes and bowls as well as other “vert” features – ramps which send the skaters into the air to complete their tricks.

    Street skateboarding, meanwhile, quite literally originated on the streets. Professional competitions involve a series of obstacles set up around a skate park designed to replicate everything from benches to railings to fire hydrants and dustbins, allowing the competitors to show off their skills just as they will have done in the outside world.

    Skateboarding is a fast, thrilling action sport where you move around on a board, fitted with wheels. If you want to get into skateboarding, visiting a skate park is a great way to get started. The Skatepark Project website has a park finder for England, Scotland and Wales. There is also a list of parks in Northern Ireland.
