Ever since its opening in 1976, the Concrete Wave has been a very successful and challenging park. At the present time, there are nine different runs designed for degrees of proficiency from beginner to advanced.
The banked freestyle area is 80' by 30', and is adjoined by a 75' kickturn run. The intermediate snake run is 125' long and empties into the "Pentagon Bowl" 12' deep by 25' wide. The advanced snake run, also 125' long, has much sharper and more challenging turns to test your abilities. This empties into a 12' by 25' bowl.
A 125' straight run with banked sides leads into the "Rio Bowl," 10' by 15' with very steep sides. The latest run is the 70' long "Guitar Pool" with tile and coping. The shallow end is 5' by 25' with 22' of vertical. The deep end is 12' by 32', and has from 3' to 5' of vertical.
In addition to this, they have another three acres which is in the planning stage for future development. This new area will be geared even more toward the advanced skateboarder and will include a large half pipe and more radical pool area.
A $3.00 lifetime membership fee is required to skate at the Concrete Wave. Persons coming in from out of state, however, do not have to meet that requirement. You will get a membership card, a 10 percent discount in the pro shop, and a 75 cent discount on admission to the "Wild, Wild Wet Water Slide" located just across the freeway.
Admission cost per session is $2.00 until 6 p.m., and $2.50 after 6 p.m. Sessions are two hours long, and start every two hours on the even hour. All required safety gear may be rented in the pro shop for 25 cents per item if you don't have your own.
The Concrete Wave has just finished construction of a new pro shop that is well stocked with the latest in high-quality skateboarding equipment. The shop places special emphasis on the more advanced material from manufacturers such as Hobie, Tracker, OJ Wheels, G & S, and Powerflex. During the summer months, weekly amateur contests are held and they usually attract some pretty stiff competition. Check in the pro shop for more details on when the contests will start and their times.
The snack bar has a selection of health food items, along with the usual sandwiches and cold drinks. There's a patio area with tables for eating, and the spectator area provides a good view of the course.
Once you have skated at the Concrete Wave, you'll see why it has retained its popularity. It has something for everyone, from beginner to pro, and with the new, advanced areas being built, the Concrete Wave is sure to remain as one of California's hottest parks.
