Tech Deck Skatepark Ideas
If you're planning to set up a Tech Deck skate park, there are a handful of objects, stunts, and tricks that no skate park should be without. For some ideas for the types of stunts and objects that your Tech Deck skate park needs, take a look at some of the things that are found in real, full-sized skate parks.
Half Pipes and Quarter Pipes
The half and quarter pipes are used for a huge number of tricks. The quarter pipe is a quarter of a circle, and a half pipe is half of one. The half pipes are great for building up momentum for higher and faster stunts, and quarter pipes are used for either adding to trick combinations, or landing from another part of the course.
Many real and toy skate parks also have 30-degree ramps, which are used sometimes for grinding—sliding along the edge of a ramp on the Tech Deck's trucks—and can also be used to get a small boost of speed.
Rails and Stairs
One of the staple pieces for skaters is sections of stairs, which may or may not have handrails. Tech Deck skate parks would also do well to have a set. The handrails are objects you can grind on and they're a challenge for skaters who want to ollie higher and faster.
In some skate parks, there are pieces called funboxes. The funbox is a raised square section, which has a ramp, a grinding edge, a section of stairs with a handrail, and a small quarter pipe on each of the four sides. The order may differ, but they're generally placed in the center of a skate park area.
Sometimes a section of raised rail is simply placed in a flat section of ground, which is another great addition to a skate park. You grind your Tech Deck on the top of the rail, and then move on to another stunt.
