A new skate park opened just down the road from the zen den. I spent a couple hours there last night with kids a third of my age. "Your as old as my dad!" Talking to friends afterward I was reminded how far we would have traveled (anything within a 4 hour drive was considered a normal day trip) to skate a place as nice as this new one (and it's free!). Now most kids have one just like it in their own backyard. Parks like this will bread some very good skaters, ones possibly with some style due in part to the popularity of deep bowls (this one has a friggin' capsule!), they require loads of flow and a lot of the kids last night understood that. I'm looking forward to skating this one some more.
