(9/8/2006) Kona (Jacksonville FL) has completely redone their pool. It is fuckin' sweet. Unfortunately I can't tell you much about it because at the time I had only a few months under my belt of pool riding. I'm ready for her now. The concrete they used is smooth as glass with a beautiful tiling job at the top portion of the vert for that fantastic "clickity-clack". I wasn't hitting coping at the time but the guys who taught me how to ride were lovin' it. They rode the pool all freakin' day long. The shallow end transition was a bit quick for rockin' rolls but negotiable. Pics of it can be seen on the Kona website under pool renovation on the photos link. A couple of new fun boxes up too.- Brad S. Brand new street course, plus a kiddie-sized street course. The cement park rocks, esp for longboards! Brand new huge half pipe - 15' high, with 10' higher roll-in, probably 40' wide. Old school pool, left over from the 70's. Great bowl. Nice transitions.

Legendary park with one of a kind concrete from the 70's. Not tone missed if in Florida and a destination skate spot if you're not. The Crete is rough, except the redone kidney pool, but fun and unique. The vert ramp is a little rough but still a lot of fun, as is the street course. Definitely an awesome park, especially if you've never experienced it in person, that should be on every skate bucket list.
