I’ve been contemplating some designs for skate spots in my head lately. One idea that I’ve had for a while consists of parallel tracks of wave like bumps varying in frequency and staggered side by side. Watching this video was both disappointing (because it’s kind of been done) and validating at the same time. It looks pretty great for found terrain, but if it was built for skating I’d lie to see the tracks staggered and directly adjacent. I have to applaud the length of these things though, they certainly didn’t skimp on the concrete.

Update: Added some actual skate footage too.
Where is this place? It’s in Novi, Michigan at the Jaguar Dealer. Are we blowing out this spot? Last year Ford sold the Jaguar and Land Rover brands to an Indian company for about half what they paid for it. These guys probably appreciate any kind of traffic they can get these days.
Here’s some skate footage, thanks to the anonymous tipster.
