You can get away with long sleeves and pants and no pads. It's pretty emtpy, too. ONly old dudes go there. Instead of trying to find an empty part of the park to skate you will be waiting for someone to skate the pool or hwtaver with you. The park is in a inaccessible part of San Jose. Don't take 101 there. That exit sucks eggs. Take 280 to Capitol Expressway to left on story to right on white

I was taking off a couple hours from work in the middle of the day to go there a few times a week until they started charging for parking. At least it's the three hottest months of the year when they do it. I'll start going back regularly in Sep. when they stop that shit and it (hopefully) stops being 999 degrees out.

It is pretty awesome how empty it is though.

the money to get in blows man we shouldnt have to pay for something thats outdoors and shit. I mean i understand if you gotta pay to go to like vans when it was at the great mall cause they got bills to pay to keep it open but that shit is just rediculous.


on a side not thats not exactly too bad of a thing , it'll keep scooter cooters and little kids that get in your way outta the park.

sometimes, that'll insure even MORE of them.

skateparks, especially supervised, pay-to-play parks are seen as cheap daycare by a lot of parents.

Damn, I definately overlooked that aspect of it.

pay to play skateparks ARE a big deal...

do people have to pay to use dog runs, bike paths, tennis courts, soccer fields, picnic areas, beaches, or basketball courts?

no, and we shouldn't have to, either, especially when most cities make skaters raise the cash themselves for parks.

I agree 100%, we shouldnt have to pay at all its ridiculous....Not a whole lot of options in this case, pay and ride or dont...Hey maybe you could pickit out front. ;D


Title: Re: New San Jose Skatepark
Post by: Schmitty on July 09, 2008, 10:31:15 AM
Not to mention that you have to pay to park too. Pay to park, pay to skate, and then pad up... FUCK THAT!


Title: Re: New San Jose Skatepark
Post by: HELLAGNAR on July 09, 2008, 01:48:57 PM
yeah, you might need the pads when skating that (as gay as that sounds.)

its pretty easy to get broke off there.

Although everyone agrees that the park is a massive benefit to San Jose, they admit that the mandatory pads rule might turn off a few folks, as will the fees, which are $2 per day or $50 per year—along with a $6 for parking.

"It's a great park, but it's already got two negatives against it as far as the street skaters go," explained Caballero.wasserbett (http://www.wasserbettenhilfe.com)  "Street skaters don't like to wear pads. It's not very comfortable for them. They can get away with helmets, but wearing knee pads and elbow pads—it just doesn't feel like street skating. It's like something else. It doesn't feel natural. That, and paying to get in and paying to park. accept credit cards online (http://www.sunvirtual.com)So I would say three negatives."

Manak equates it to charging people to ride swings and Stevens adds: "You're not charging the basketball players to use the basketball hoops, are you? So why this?"

He also says he'd rather see an option to wear pads, at least for . "Make 'em wear a helmet and let 'em choose to wear pads," he tells me. "A lot of the vert skaters—a lot of the guys now don't even wear pads, which is insane. I DJ a lot of these contests and a lot of these guys going through these things—there's three guys at once going through the bowl—there's been some places where guys have gotten their teeth knocked out and concussions and #### like that. #### happens, you know. But I guess if I was a parent, I'd want to know that junior in there is safe and wearing pads and all. But even if you're wearing pads, you can still get ruined sometimes."

Caballero agrees. "I understand wearing a helmet, 'cause you could fall and hurt your head," he says. "But if you're over 18 and have that aspect of being an and making your own proper decisions, then you should be able to skate at your own risk."

Just tell that to all the ambulance drivers.

"The ambulance is going to be at this park a lot. I can tell you that," he says. "It's gnarly. It's got some big stuff, so there's going to be a lot of blood and broken ankles. And that's because skateboarding is dangerous. It's like you're at a motocross track. The ambulance is going to show up. Someone's going to get hurt."
