100% Typical Culture / Snatch D.I.Y Park

Pala Skatepark is located in east Oceanside on an indian reservation. The best feature about the layout of the park is the flow to each area of the park and the three bowls. The downfall is that it’s $10 during the weekend, thanks to Chris we got in free. There used to be a pool out there that would be skated everyday, but it’s been demolished. If that has anything to do with this skatepark being built after that pool was destroyed on 4-20-2007, then hell ya someone is keeping the fire going out in pala. The park is worth a visit to each and every skater if your anywhere near it.
Flow – 2′ Ft euro gap with a gap to the left of it. Into a little bowled snake run with a mini cradle then a love seat to the right of that. Bank to tranny over the 2 stair.
First bowl – Skull pocket with tight quick tranny in a snake run with a escalader hip.
Second Bowl – Double square bowl with some good speed lines which equals grinds and a nice hip.
Third Bowl – Originally was designed to be a replica of the Pala pool. Nothing like it but super fun mellow tranny. Deathbox where you see the blue tape. All the coping will let you grind as long as you can.
