A piece of tasmanian history, built in the early 80s many have grown up skating at this great park. a main feature is 'thrasher' (pictured) ..the final bend into the bowl, with skating above the piece almost a rite of passage for new skaters Tony Alva made a special trip to tas to ride this, and rates it as a personal favorite

WHAT: 100m snake run with 3.5m deep bow at bottom

GOOD: deep fast and flowy

BAD: getting old and a bit rough

PADS: helmet recommended

ADDRESS: 35 Lochner St, West Hobart TAS 7000, Australia

amazing atmosphere. this place is covered in great graffiti, surrounded by great stories and frequented by the friendly locals.
the snake holds a few lines for the creative, and the bowl has many vert skate options. loads of fun.

Ben Raemers backs it up with a 12-page interview which leaves no doubt that he's one of our country's most valuable imports.
