Skatepark Zutphen is one of those new all-concrete skateparks that are popping up everywhere. The opening was scheduled Saturday, September 23.
The park opened at 10.00h, but knowing the dutch bmx scene the first bmxer would probably show up around 14.00h. Arriving at that time the skatepark was completely (over)filled with skaters, kids, and yes, two bmx kids.
The park is built amazingly smooth. It's got a lot of obstacles, like steers, rails, and huge banks. Even the steel sidewalls looked as if they were ready for some serious wallriding. Next to that the park has a pool with very fast lines and to top it off, the pool was finished with a cradle, the first and only in the Netherlands.
Time to shoot some skate-pics and about one hour later Ricardo
showed up: "the others are on their way". Whatever that means... About 15 minutes later Franky Elshof, Vincent de Vogel
and Tim Stijnz
dropped into the park and started ripping it instantly...
