Its just incredible that there is even a skate park on
an island in the south of Thailand, let alone one so
rideable and so completely unique. Its a
privately-owned concrete oasis in the middle of
coconut, mango, and banana trees, with a drink/snack
bar in back of the skate ramp, an art loft, and the
Eternal Rogue clothing/skate shop on the same
property. (Nice for traveling sk8ers who snapped
their board on the mainland and need a new one...or
two.) Quality maple boards for sale as well as
rentals. Street, rails, all concrete, small, mid, and
high drop-ins, with a mini halfpipe and bowls coming
soon. Power lighting at night, and cranked-up
alternative music make this one a real beach-meets
street, east-meets-west underground sk8 scene.

There's now a huge pile of dirt and stones in the middle of this place making it almost completely unskateable.

There's a little opening by the quarter where you can sort of sneek down, but I have to say, it was a let down after I brought my board out with the sole intention of finally seeing this place.

It looks like the house in the back is still skater owned. I knocked on the door to make sure they didn't mind if I skated; no one came out. I was there about two hours and never heard from anyone.

The ladies in the little food stand across the street have a huge vat of cold water they were happy to give me a few cups of.

See the pictures.
