Our Groundbreaking Ceremony was held on August 7, 2008. We had a great turnout and photos were taken for the local Newspaper. Vice Mayor Randy Richenburg started things off by thanking NSBSkate members and the appropriate City Officials for their involvement in this very worthy project. Thank you to everyone who showed up to show support and participate in the Ceremony. Stay tuned for updates on the park as construction progresses. We are officially on our way folks! See photos & video from the ceremony HERE.
A lot of people did a lot to make this thing happen, some of those include Mike "Walrus" Duncan, Kelly Lynn, Susan Renzuli and Kelly Ball starting the process over 5 years ago of making this into a reality and raising funds. Danny Young and his company Zev Cohen & Associates donated a lot of services to finding us a useful way to develop our land. Team Pain helped out immensely by coming up with the design, and devoting countless hours. Ian Bellafiore and myself came into the NSB skate park committee about 2 years ago and were just in time to help to apply for a grant, which we wound up getting from the county. We also got a Tony Hawk grant to help out with expenses. And now my company was awarded the contract to make it happen, via Team Pain!
Finally, East Coast Florida will have a worth while skate park along 95 between St Augustine and Cocoa. The pool is designed by the combined efforts of Kelly Lynn and Tito P. It is going to kick ass! Tile and Pool coping. The flow area 'may' have some original features, being "the shark bite capital of the world" and all. NSB is on the map. We will now have a killer concrete skate park, free, open to the public sun up to sun down... fenced. Total surf and turf destination being right between NSB inlet and Ponce Inlet.
2-7-08 Our skatepark project continues to move forward. Our site plan has been approved and we now have a final skatepark design that will make our park a standout in the skateboard community. For more info check the News & Events page. Keep the Faith - NSBSkate
