Memphis TN Area
« on: February 05, 2021, 05:02:10 PM »
Any pals live in the memphis area? I'll be moving to Millington TN (20 min from Memphis) this June. I seen they have a newish park out there in some areas of memphis called Raleigh that looks like a really fun park. Also saw that shop/indoor park which seems pretty cool. How is the skate scene out there? Open to new skaters coming in or is there a bunch of clicks and stuff out there? I'm a sort of older dude that's 31 and I skate alot of parks but also enjoy curbs and can still enjoy the streets and filming if I'm going out with a solid crew of homies. Any info on the memphis scene or peeps who live out there would be awesome! Can't wait to be out there skating some new scenery and making some new skate shalomies.

Not from there, but I visited on a work trip recently. I skated Memphis skate park, which was fun, a lot more transition oriented than my preference but Iím a ledge guy. Also skated Al town DIY which was super sick, but a lot of the stuff there was a bit gnar for me hahah. I went out at 8am on a Sunday so not many people skating and it was like 30 degrees that day so I only made it like an hour at each spot.

Sorry donít have a ton to add but figured Iíd give my 2 cents on the couple places I have been.

I'm from Tupelo, MS which isn't too far from there - around the same age as you. So I'd trek up to Memphis and link up with those crews pretty often when I was growing up skating. I don't really visit that often but I could probably put you in touch with some people from around there if you're interested.
