In order to make skateparks more skateable and fun on small places where you have to choose and optimize space, wich are your non-obvious favorite spot on skatepark?

Obvius favorite spots:
- Bench
- Flatbar
- Low section rail
- Low section hubba

Thank you very much

Euro Gap. All the fun of skating gaps with none of the bullshit of hitting the ground so damn hard.

Definitely Euro gaps, or London gaps as we call them over here. Another firm fav of mine are angled manual pads to do tricks up and down. What I love about them is that I can endlessly try stuff thatís really hard for me to do without much potential for hurting myself. On ledges and rails I keep it to the basics, and I donít jump down shit any more.

Traditional fucking pyramids with actual fucking flat.

I'm not sure if it's just an east coast thing but all of the new parks have those awful A-frames and I can't stand it. How am I supposed to pretend I'm competing in a late 90s Tampa Am if I can't launch tricks over the flat? Simple, I can't.

I miss pyramids so much. Not just the platform, but also the way you can skate the hips.

lol, everyone saying euro gaps don't realize that in order to skate most Euro's you pretty much have to snake everyone else in the park

As mentioned before a mellow pyramid with good hips and the right amount of flat on top is what I grew up on and therefore I will always love it. Its relatively safe to skate and a lot of the newer funbox centerpiece bastardisations are just too much (for old ass me).

Does it have a sign saying "snake to skate"?

Bank to ledges/curbs

A ditch/similar set up, with some parking blocks on top.

Euros, manny pads, normal ass curbs to slappy, a pole jam, decent lil grass gap. 

Ask a medical expert about pre-teens and their bones, unless you are scared to.

I love a good bench/ledge on the flat top of a mellow to medium pyramid, going angled from bank to bank at the hip (creating a triangle) but set back a half foot or so, so it doesn't get in the way of doing flip tricks over the hip at all. Hyped any time I find one of these at a park.
