Hey guys just thought I would give you a heads up about SMPS new situation. Firstly the park is now a pay park-regardless if you are riding or not. They are charging 60rmb on weekends and 50rmb on weekdays. (6/5 euro) not to bad but its a lot of money for the chinese skaters. Therefore the place is dead mostly during the week and a bunch of expat kids on weekends. Kinda sux. But be warned-girlfriends and friends etc will have to pay full entry as well. 2nd the steel park in the photos is no longer there. They moved it to another location and are set to open it with the same prices as smp. Shit, if you come with the intentions of filming or taking pics-try keep it on the down low (pros particularly) they require you to sign a contract stating that you are not allowed to use pics or footage without paying some ridiculous amount of money. It happened to bmx riders morgan wade and jamie bestwick last month.
They do have lights-but are never on because they only put them in one position creating major shadows.
