Amarillo, Texas?
« on: November 09, 2020, 03:56:02 AM »
I searched but all I could find was something about a full pipe that's probably a bust and that's not my kinda spot anyways.


I'm in Amarillo for the next two weeks for work. Staying in one of the hotels out by the movie theater and hospitals. I'm not sure how much time Im going to have to skate but I'd imagine I'm going to have at least a couple days off. I don't really have a car so this is a long shot but are there any spots out this way?

How are the cops and locals around here? There's a lot of empty lots and curb cuts out here but I haven't seen any waxed curbs or anything that obviously designates "people skate here" yet, though I haven't really explored too much yet. I saw some painted ones that looked promising. Is there a skate shop around here anywhere?

Also is it always this fucking windy?

If there's any PALS around here lemme know. I'm here to help out with the COVID outbreak so Im probably not going to be someone you want to be hanging out with, but it's always nice to have a locals advice on where to eat/shop etc. I'm probably not going to take one of the decks I brought back with me so if anyone lives around here and wants an 8.25 hockey in decent shape shoot me a PM and I'll let you know when I'm leaving.,

Both the skateparks in Amarillo are pretty fun depending on what you want to skate. And yep, itís always windy.

Never thought Iíd say this, but maybe rent a car take a trip down to Lubbock and skate the diy and Texas Tech campus, which has spots and waxed ledges and stuff. Plainview is in the middle of Lubbock and Amarillo and has a really fun park.

Iím out here as well on a nursing deployment for a couple weeks to a month. Going to be working six 12 hour shifts in a row with one off, so I wonít be able to do much other than eat and sleep.

Shit i wish i saw this before now. Im leaving today. You at BSA or VA?

For any Amarillo pals, i left 4 decks and a beat but still skateable pair of NB 440s at John Stiff park under the pavilion. All are 8.25 - one hockey, one dgk, one pizza, and a flight. All have plenty of life left. I put a bunch of crappy stickers on them because i was bored out of my mind down here when the weather made it borderline impossible to skate down here.
