The Boardr and the Berrics teamed up to bring us the Adidas Skate Copa Shop VS. Shop Team Contest Series. There are 5 stops in the tour, 3 of them  built by California Skateparks; LES Skate Park in New York, Kennesaw Skate Park in Georgia and the infamous Berrics in Los Angeles.

The Format:
A shop team can be made of four skaters, one of which can be a pro from the shop roster. An additional fifth team member can be added to the team if a shop member/owner wants to take part (the member/owner must be over 30 years old).
Each of the five qualifying tour stops will be based on a jam format where the top three skater’s scores of each team will be counted.
At the end of each contest, a cash prize of $500 for the Best Trick is up for grabs for anyone at the event who wants to partake, contestants and spectators alike.

The winning Shop Team from each of the five regional qualifiers will be flown to LA for the final on the 11th of July at The Berrics.

Our skatepark designer Jaxon Statzell sat down with a group of BMX and skateboard riders, along with several parents and local officials to begin the work of designing the new Kelseyville skate and BMX park. More than 20 people – including a fairly even split of boarders and bikers – took part in the meeting, held at Guido’s Pizzeria in Kelseyville and hosted by Jeff Rein, deputy director of Lake County Public Services, the county department which will oversee the park. The county has dedicated $300,000 to creating the park, which will be located next to the spot currently being used as a temporary BMX riding area at the three-acre Kelseyville County Park at 5270 State St., Rein said.

Today the country of Panama gets to enjoy their first, state-of-the-art skate park; the first of its kind in Central America.  This means hundreds of kids will be attending the Grand Opening – including the President of Panama, Ricardo Martinelli. The all–concrete skate park features a street plaza complete with an array of stair sets with handrails and hubbas, a-frame rails and ledges,  and a variety of other obstacles that surround an amazing flow bowl; all painted red and blue to pay tribute to the country’s flag.  The skate park is an estimated 20,000 square feet and is located at Cinta Costera Park, which is right on the water in Panama City, making for an even more picturesque setting.  California Skateparks is happy to have had the opportunity to design and oversee construction of this amazing project.



Our construction crew sent over these photos of all their hard work at North Eastern Regional Skatepark in El Paso, Texas. This skate park promises as much variety per square foot as any skate park out there, and at nearly 25,000 square feet there enough room for some of every type of terrain. The park features a full fledged street plaza with all the rails, ledges, stairs, bank and hips you could ask for, in addition to having a separate snake run, a massive flow bowl that includes a custom cradle, and last but not least is a competition level in-ground vert bowl complete with custom pool coping and tile.












Over the weekend we visited the Tinnell Memorial Sports Park in beautiful Lake Havasu City, Arizona for the First Annual CA PRO/AM Contest. Back when we designed this skate park, the city requested a park that would not only give the community an amazing and safe place to skate, but also bring tourism and help boost the local economy through events just like this.

This contest was put together by CA Productions, an event company under the CA family umbrella headed up by Jeff Jewett, which included an array of different events all wrapped up into one Spring Break Weekend. The event included Amateur Unsponsored and Sponsored contests with over 120 participants, a very properly named “Riot Race” around the flow-course section, and a “Bounty in the Bowl” contest that included a handful of very notable Amateur and Professional Skateboarders. In addition to the long list of athletes; contests sponsors, vendors, and spectators came to show their support for the event and the City of Lake Havasu throughout the weekend, making for a fun-filled and exciting time.

Vans HB Skatepark Opening Edit

Posted on March 26th, 2014

Over the weekend we had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of The Vans “Off the Wall” Skate Park in Huntington Beach, CA. It was amazing to work along side the City of HB, Vans and Jacks Surfboards to make this dream a reality.

We are happy to say the new Vans “Off The Wall” skatepark is finally open!

“Working with the Vans organization and Steve Van Doren has been an experience I’ll never forget. Vans is a staple in skateboarding and we knew we’d have to live up to their reputation. I know what we’re capable of, and I think the Vans “Off The Wall” Skatepark is a testament to the standards California Skateparks holds itself to. With the amount of quality, creativity, and passion contributed by both parties, this park is absolutely going to be one of the best parks in Southern California.”

Huntington Beach, CA- March 22, 2014. The date is set, and the wait is almost over. This world class project, several years in the making, is set to be unveiled in just a matter of days. Hundreds if not thousands have been anxiously anticipating the grand opening of the behemoth skate park, and with good reason. VANS founder Steve Van Doren approached California Skateparks CEO Joe Ciaglia to develop the master plan and ultimately act as general contractor and landscape architect for the entire site, which spans a full city block in Huntington Beach. The project boasts a 40,000 square foot VANS “OFF THE WALL” skate park complete with lights, snack bar, bathrooms, lockers, and parking lot, in addition to a brand new Jacks Garage store on the premises. It is nothing short of a skateboard utopia that promises to be the premier skate park destination for years to come.

The skate park itself offers some of every imaginable type of terrain, but is generally defined by an upper transition / flow / bowl area and a lower street/ plaza / park area, which are tied together by the well-known and iconic Vans checkerboard paving pattern found throughout the entire park. The upper transition portion of the park measures around 17,500 square feet, consisting of hybrid backyard bowl / flow bowl combination as well as a full sized competition clover bowl adorned with Golden State Pool Coping and custom tile, both of which were designed and influenced by legendary VANS rider Christian Hosoi as well as VANS team and staff members in collaboration with Joe Ciaglia of California Skateparks. The massive 25,000 square foot area dedicated to the street plaza area is comprised of an over abundance of real-life street elements including stairs, rails, gaps, planter ledges, kickers, rollers, a double-kinked handrail that’s over 40 feet long, and volcano feature with a palm tree in the center to complete the iconic southern California vibe . The VANS “OFF THE WALL” skate park also presents a unique opportunity for the community in that it will also be capable of hosting Pro Events.
