Vans Skatepark HB Round Up

Posted on April 21st, 2015

Vans has one of the deepest skate histories out there. They’ve supported skating through thick and thin and have always had amazing riders. It has been such an amazing experience working with Vans over the years. Here’s Steve Caballero, Christian Hosoi, Geoff Rowley, Jason Dill, Curren Caples, Elijah Berle, Dan Lu, Andrew Allen, Chima Ferguson, and Alex Perelson skating the Vans Huntington Beach Skatepark we built last year.



The town of Badalona will be getting their first Street League Skatepark, Skate Agora Barcelona! The street course we’re building for Street League Pro Open, May 16-17th, will be a permanent skatepark left for the skateboarders of Spain to enjoy. This beautiful skate plaza has an amazing ocean view and will be held to California Skateparks high quality standards.

In 2013 X-Games hosted Street League Skateboarding on their international tour. As the official builders of Street League we were able to create some unique street courses for each country. It was a awesome experience to say the least. From Brazil to Barcelona to Munich and finally back to Los Angeles it definitely worth a look back at.

SKATEBOARDING IN OAKLAND; Town Park Build

Posted on February 23rd, 2015

In the Fall of 2014, Levi’s Skateboarding partnered with California Skateparks and Keith “K-Dub” Williams of West Oakland to revamp the existing Town Park Skate Park. Along the way a documentary was shot to tell a story of K-Dub, Town Park, West Oakland, and those who skate there. This documentary highlights the importance of skate parks for communities and the youth.



New Vans Street Course at Block of Orange

Posted on February 19th, 2015

Yesterday we finished refurbishing the Vans street course located at the Block of Orange. The skatepark that consisted of old wood ramps has been replaced with long lasting concrete and brand new custom metal features and rails. The park couldn’t be complete without a pop of color and the vans signature checkerboard.

This is the 2nd renovation we’ve done for Vans Block of Orange Skatepark. In 2010 we remodeled the famous combi bowl.

Address 20 City Boulevard West
Orange, CA 92868
(714) 769-3800
Hours Monday-Saturday 10am – 10pm
Sunday 10am – 9pm

In 2005, Rob Dyrdek opened the Kettering Skate Plaza in Kettering, OH. This skate plaza was the first-of-its-kind street plaza. Since then, we have have been a part of building twenty certified skate plazas thanks to the work of Street League Foundation.

Established with the goal of increasing skateboarding participation and awareness, the Street League Skateboarding Foundation continues to create healthy, sustainable communities by promoting the benefits of skateboarding throughout the world.
