Oxnard Skatepark Listing
After filling out the paperwork to be allowed in to skate this park, I found the session was already in full swing with regulars of Concrete Disciples, Punk Rock Skateboards, and Socal Skateparks. I barged in straight through the over staffed entrance and went straight to the deep end. It looked pretty juicy in there with Les Pearlman throwing up inverts on the extension. The rest of the park was hopping with the tech kids.
Before I could get situated the voice from above said “Everyone must exit the park.” This was to be able to bring in the next session of skaters. Me and the above mentioned didn’t budge and a minute after it was basically cleared out they let the same skaters back in. I jumped into my armor, dropped in, and was greeted by the nice 8 foot bowl with slightly lumpy transitions, grippy coping (This should have been buffed out before hand), and that extra grippy 1st day concrete that doesn’t want to let you knee slide without ripping your shorts off with some of your skin. I definitely realize how spoiled I’ve gotten this year with perfect trannies and coping because of Oxnard (Why should we settle for less I ask you?). This bowl needs some breaking in, so we all set about it as best we could.
For several hours we skated in the hot sun and every hour the same message “Everyone must exit the park…” would come out and we would ignore it. Many skaters came and went through the day, but by the time I left things were mellowed out a lot and they didn’t need to sweat the session but they did anyway.
Here’s some of my last notes for you:
It’s free, concrete, outdoors, pads required, waivers are required, and no “somersaults or 360-degree actions allowed” (according to the rules list)
