    indoor skateparks

    who hates them? i can skate the same obstacles at an outdoor park and be completely comfortable, but indoors i just get a weird feeling. i can still skate, just not confidently. its always been that way. and all of my worst falls have occurred at indoor parks. i cant figure out what it is. lighting maybe?

          I'm the opposite I guess. Maybe it's because everything I learned was learned at an indoor skatepark. I practically lived on mini ramps. I don't like the open atmosphere of outdoor parks. I don't know maybe it just fucks with my focus, but I'm always more apprehensive when it comes to outdoor obstacles. That may also be because I have to adjust my skating to whether it's metal ramps, cement, or metal ramps to cement, or plastic or whatever.

            I don't give a flying fuck, and anyone who does is a pussy. Some walls and a roof doesn't affect what you are skating.
            Sure, the materials might be different but that doesn't take any getting used to.
            How many skateboarders does it take to change a lightbulb? One, but it'll take him 100 tries.

              Im the same way but i think it has more to do with indoor parks surfaces. Dust is a major culprit at alot of indoor parks causing the ramps to become slippery. If a person isnt used to it or its been a while since the staff has cleaned the ramps, shit can be death no matter who you are. I dont know if anyone skated Cheapskates in PA back in the 90's, but they had no ventilation and pre-skatelite ramps were surfaced with masonite. That shit was fucking awful. Ramps would get so slick and you would have masonite dust boogers for days after skating there.

                True, true. Newport skatepark in Wales was like being a dust mite, I couldn't breathe or skate decently.

                  WTF are you talking about? Some parks are just bad no matter who you are. If a park has black metal ramps and soft asphalt there is no getting used to that in summer heat when the ramp surface gives you 2nd degree burns and your wheels sink into the ground when skating. Also refer to my Cheapskates example above. There was no getting used to that place it just sucked.

                    What I was trying to say, was that if something is indoor it won't affect it, and I was thinking more concrete/wood.

                          Oh the masonite dust. I remember actually getting sick after I skated Butterbean's skatepark every single time I did. Also probably had to do with them heating the place with space heaters. Imagine dropping in and it's 55 degrees, skate over the funbox, past the space heater where it's about 90 degrees, and a second later, you're back at 55. Plus all that dust, I got around that by pretty much never turning haha.

                          Somebody told me that place closed down after their roof collapsed

                            how could you be more scared of an indoor park? you can take some beefy ass falls on the ramps without it fucking you up too bad. concrete park falls are always bad!

                              Depends on how well the concrete is polished, but generally true.
