A full tank of gas from New York City, Montauk is a 3hour drive. It is best to fill the car with a few friends and call it a day trip, and bring beer and paper bags. The park is located in the beach town of Montauk at the tip of Long Island. The locals do nothing but surf, drink and eat, so they don't realize that their $1 million investment was a waste of money. John Woodstock strikes again. I have heard that he messed up the surface of the St. Augustine pool too. It is like riding on boat deck grip. The surface actually visibly wears your wheels down. The pool is a fun shaped righ handed kidney, with an 11 foot over vert deepend with butter coping and a 6 foot shallow end with kind of tight trannies. It is fun, but the impending doom looms over you after your first brush with the sandpaper surface. As a result, it is hard to open up in this pool. At any rate, we skated it the whole time we were there, because of the 1970's freeform area with flat banks (like KONA's freestyle area) and aluminum coping on the spine section, yuck. I would give this park a bad rating, but if you are from NYC, it is worth the drive once, just to conquer the burlyness of the poor construction. That gives the park more points in my book. It costs $11 if you are not a Montauk or Hamptons resident. I get the feeling that there aren't many. Watch video of our session on my website.
