ORCAS ISLAND SKATE PARK #1

Yesterday in the Seattle Times article "Holy halfpipe: Western Washington's top 10 skateparks" by John Kinmonth you'll never guess which skatepark took top honors. That's right, Orcas Island's skatepark! The very same park that our Skateboard Camp visits on a daily basis.

You can click the links above to read the article and/or to learn more about our Skateboard Camp (or to register). Here's an excerpt from the Seattle Times story...
#1 ORCAS ISLAND
Mount Baker Road, just east of Eastsound

Ferry, paddle or swim your way to this island paradise. Perfectly designed and silky smooth, this concrete bowl — officially known as Scott Stamnes Memorial Skatepark — is everything a skateboard park should be. Built in 2002 by the collective genius of Seattle's Grindline Skateparks and Oregon's Dreamland Skateparks with the support of island advocates Warren Miller and Hobie Alter, this is the region's ultimate destination park. Pack your swim trunks and a tent. Skate, swim, repeat.
