|This would be to go to the meetings of people who create the skateparks. I would be another voice amongst the skateboarders who skate bowls against all the dumb soccer moms who want these lame ass skateparks for their little kids.
: Two things work really well :
: PETITIONS - with LOTS of signatures.
: And bodies - Get asd many people to go to those meetings as you can.
: We had a group that petitioned the city (here in Austin) to build our skate park. In Houston, the same thing happened with a group called P.U.S.H. (Public Use Skateparks in Houston). It works! Politicians listen to big groups.
: Cheers and good luck!
: : I don't think a single rollerskater is going to have much influence. You may want to rally the other skateboarders who want more vert/bowl stuff than street.
: : : Has anyone gone to the meetings on bldg. the parks and been listened to as a rollerskater? I talked to my friend and he said I need to go because all of us older skaters hate these kiddie launch myself onto my ass skateparks with zero flow. They are more dangerous then something with just a curve and flow. And boring if you arent into rails/launches. But all the soccer moms was these boxes and rails cause their little kids like them and say vert/bowls are more dangerous.
